Basic Information

There are so many facts and figures required to make a decision to attend an event like Writers, Romance and Rainbows 2013. We thought it would be helpful to set up some links to as much information as possible. Of course, these pages will get more and more detailed as time goes on.

In the LINKS section in the Menu on the right hand side of this page, there are links information on the convention venue, how to get there and everything you can find there and in the surrounding neighborhood. There is a link to the Panel Overview. We've already added to that. We expect to add a great deal more. Finally, there is a link to how to contact the coordinators for WRR2013 and how to follow Bent-con. Don't hesitate to contact us with questions or suggestions.

And don't forget to check back often!

If you are a pubbed author, publishing house, cover artist, editor, GLBT book group, GLBT review site, etc. Then this is for you. On December 6 – 8, 2013, there will be a GLBT Book Fair called ‘Writers, Romance, & Rainbows’ at Bent-con in Los Angeles. During these three days, there will be a cover model contest, a formal ball, panel discussions, a book signing, and a chance to meet, greet, and get your work out there to another audience.

For those who aren’t familiar with Bent-con, it has been described as the ‘Gay comic-con’. But it’s so much more than that. This con gathers together those LGBT individuals in the Arts & Entertainment Industry and gives them a chance to showcase, sell, and discuss their work. To be among like-minded individuals in a safe and fun environment. It’s also a chance to speak with fans, those who are curious, and even those wanting to get into the business.

For those who are familiar with Bent-con, this would be a golden opportunity to introduce your work to another audience. To talk about the genre, network, or just enjoy being surrounded by those who share your love of the craft.

Further details will be coming soon and registration will be on a first come first serve basis. An announcement will go out when registration is up. But if interested now, or just have question, please contact myself, Kimberly Hunter, or Deborah L. Warner here. These will be the panel discussions for those who want to participate:
E-Pubs ~ How they've grown & where they're going in the future.
Cover Art ~ Your book is done; now you need a cover. Where to start.
Q & A ~ Why Gay Romance?
Self-Pub vs. Traditional Pub ~ The how's & why's.
Marketing & Promo ~ How do I get my work out there?
Social Media ~ Is it worth it?
Websites & Blogs ~ Keeping the masses informed.
Put a Little Kink in your Gay Romance ~ A discussion about BDSM in Gay Romance.
