YALC 2015

Hey fwends! 

It's been a little while since my last post, but I've got a nifty update for you all!

First: YALC 2015, my wrap-up

The whole weekend was absolutely amazing! I got to do my first ever panel, which was all about horror, with Darren Shan, Lou Morgan and Will Hill, with Matt Whyman chairing. I got to buy a lot (and I mean a LOT) of books! I got to meet some of my favourite booktubers in person, as well as some amazing bloggers!

I also got to meet Cassandra Clare (she was lovely) and Kevin Brook (lovely too!)

Fellow (amazing author) Tatum Flynn and I took a lesson in tarot cards for inspiring ideas from the wonderful Anna McKerrow

Working hard!

I very much enjoyed the agent panel with Kat Ellis (author of Blackfin Sky, Breaker and Purge) and her literary agent, Molly Ker Hawn of the Bent Agency. It was such a great chance for aspiring authors to gain an insight into the agent-author relationship, as well as the opportunity to hear about kinds of things Molly is currently seeking. 

The cosplay game was high. Katherine Webber and her husband were adorable as Endymion and Sailor Moon! 

And Kat made a very convincing casual Sith Lord. 

Chill as anything.

I met Voldemort, and of course I got into trouble for it. 

The whole weekend was simply indescribable, and I slept for what seemed like a week when it was done! 


One of the best moments was when The Dead House sold out first, and within hours! I was absolutely wowed, and they took this picture to prove it! 

The Dead House sells out first, in hours.

I had fun with all the colourful sharpies and wandering around lost in the bliss of hooky smells all over. Here are a few more of the cool photos that were snapped:

Dawn, out!
