I am a long-time member of EPIC, the Electronic Publishing Industry Coalition, and attended its conferences for many years. Unfortunately, even though the conference is held in my hometown of San Antonio, Texas, I’m unable to attend because of health reasons. However, I wanted to share the official announcement and encourage anyone interested in writing for publication, especially electronic publication, to attend if possible.
Please join us in the lovely city of San Antonio, Texas for EPICon 2015.
EPICon- Bringing ePublishing Partners Together
March 13-14th, 2015
The Menger Hotel, San Antonio, TX
Sponsored by the Electronic Publishing Industry Coalition
REGISTRATION IS NOW OPEN!
Enjoy two days of all things ePublishing. With workshops for any author or publishing professional, this short period will be packed with information, news, and most importantly: education. Authors, old and new, will have the opportunity to learn about small press ePublishing and network with publishers, editors, and experienced published authors.
For 2015, we have a full schedule of educational and informative workshops for authors and publishers, with guest speakers like David Wilk, Carol Berg, and many others. This action-packed two day conference will end with the annual Award Banquet where we will honor authors and cover artists.
Our venue will be the Menger Hotel. With 150 years of history, it is a must see in the beautiful San Antonio. Two blocks from the vibrant River Walk, it is the border between San Antonio’s colorful past and it’s cosmopolitan present.
Registration this year will be $224 for members, and $249 for nonmembers. This will include the workshops, breakfast buffets for both days, guest speaker lunches for both days and the banquet on Saturday evening.
This year we are also offering add on options for the Thursday before the conference. These options are:
Publishers’ Intensive Luncheon $20
Taking the Mystery out of Ebook Self-Publishing: A Guide for Publishers
Evening Dinner Tour $35
A dinner cruise along the beautiful San Antonio River as it weaves its way through the historic Riverwalk.
Room rates are*:
One King Bed $110.00/night
Two Double Beds $110.00/night
*Rates are set by hotel for the EPICon convention. Rates apply by room, not by person. For other room options and price listings please go to the Menger website at http://www.mengerhotel.com/san-antonio-accommodations.
While you are thinking about registration, this is a great time to consider EPIC membership, if you are not a member already, since the membership cost will practically pay for itself in the discount for the event.
