You can find all the details of the convention on their website. Check it out. I've heard only good things about Ad Astra.
Last week, I was offered a ride up with a bunch of awesome writers from Ottawa, and, after a long, hard think, I decided to take up their offer. I would be a right fool to pass up on such an opportunity. I sent them a confirmation, and then went ahead and registered this morning.
So, Ad Astra it is!
I will not be on any panels (at present, in any case) and won't be getting a table to sell. This year, I'm going merely to observe, mingle, and learn. If I like it well enough, I may look into getting a table there for 2017.
I'm super excited about this. My first out of town speculative fiction convention!
I'm still dead set on going to When Worlds Collide as well, since that was the one I had set my sights on for this year. I'm making arrangements so I can afford the plane ticket out. I may just be able to swing it. We'll see. It depends quite heavily on the kindness of others.
One day, I'll be able to decide to go to a convention and just go. As of right now, however, it all requires extremely careful budgeting and trying to get it done is quite stressful.
I am determined, however!
So, yeah. If you're in Toronto in the middle of April, keep an eye out for me!
I have more editing on Daughters of Britain to get done. Off I go to work!
