The best advice I can offer you in getting noticed is asking a lot of questions. This is more important during a panel than at a booth, but still applies. A number of writers I met recognized me because I asked questions during panels and they were like, “Hey, I remember you”. It also helps I was wearing a browncoats shirt… and who doesn’t like browncoats.
Today we visit Jason M. Hough.
I need $125 by October 30th, 2017. Anything you can give will help.
Before Jason was a writer, he was a 3D artist, animator, and game designer. Having worked on Metal Fatigue, Aliens vs Predator: Extinction, and many other projects.
In 2008, for NaNoWriMo, he began work on the Darwin Elevator. After completing it, he continued to refine it until 2011 when it was sold to Del Ray with contract to write two more sequels.
His 3 books was released in the summer of 2013, with a future release of his next project released in 2015.
I remember seeing him at the Dystopia vs Utopia panel and the Worldbuilding: Economics panel. I also met him at his booth where he remembered me from the panels and we talked of his book. I happen to won a copy of The Darwin Elevator, which sounds like the kind of Sci-Fi I love.
This is on my list of summer reading.
