Kat Ellis at YALC

Hello, Firefly readers!

I’m taking over the Firefly Press site today to talk about something exciting – namely YALC! Yes, that’s right - the first ever literary convention in the UK to focus on young adult literature, and I’ll be there on 12th & 13th July.

The line-up for the convention ( was revealed a few days ago, and it. is. FANTASTIC. I’m especially looking forward to the ‘Heroes of Horror’ panel on the Saturday afternoon, and the panel about crossover fiction on the Sunday.

I’ve only been to one big event like this before (World Fantasy Con in Brighton last November) and I can’t wait to watch the panels and get books signed by my favourite authors, and meet some of the people I talk to on twitter, of course!

There will be a Blackfin Sky display in the publishers’ area, so I might just be lurking around there if you want to swing by for a chat or to have your copy signed. I’ll also be tweeting from the event (phone battery permitting!) and will write a post afterwards with photos and highlights from the weekend.

If you’re going to YALC, I look forward to seeing you there. If not, don’t miss my wrap-up post with all the gossip afterwards…
