The announcement of this went over my head (which is understandable, since the weekend it went live was when I was doing the first round of high-level edits on my book), so I'm glad I can tell you all this exciting news. I've attended Penguicon twice (once as a Special Guest), and they've gone ahead and made me a SUPER SPECIAL AWESOME GUEST OF HONOR FOR 2018!
I love this convention, and it always makes me thrilled to see a community devoted to creating a culture that means what it says. They have a great Code of Conduct (that they're willing to enforce, too!); the atmosphere at the con is very different from practically every SF-style con I've been to; IT IS SO VERY GAY AND QUEER ALL THE TIME; and it is the convention that kicked off my now-infamous tradition of reading Chuck Tingle stories to unsuspecting congoers.
So yeah, I am incredibly thrilled that I get to be a GoH. You can already purchase your membership for next year for the bargain price of $45 for the whole weekend. The convention will take place May 4 - May 6, 2018, at the Southfield Westin in Southfield, MI, which is just outside of Detroit.
SCREECHES EXCITEDLY INTO THE NIGHT.
