Exclusive Excerpt of "Elsewhere" by Blue Cole, JordanCon 10 Author Guest

This year's Author Guests are a veritable who's who of fantasy and sci-fi literature, and we're proud to have among them Blue Cole, a Georgia resident and prolific writer with a flair for fantasy storytelling that's hard to beat.

At this year's event, he'll be releasing his latest novel, Elsewhere, and to help everyone prepare, we have two exclusive excerpts from his book. You won't find this anywhere else.

Meet the Artist: Linda Taglieri

Linda Taglieri scarcely requires introduction to the many fans of her famous blog on The Wheel of TimeĀ®, the 13th Depository. But perhaps less widely known is her immense talent and skill as a textile artist, a master of many techniques, working in a wide array of fabrics and materials. Like many artists, she evolves with each completed piece, still discovering how far the boundaries of her art may go, but delighting us at every turn. You can find out more about Linda's artistic journey below, or chat with her in person at JordanCon, where she is a frequent featured panelist in the World of the Wheel track.

About the JordanCon Art Show

JordanCon 2018 will be the tenth JordanCon and the seventh year for the Art Show. For those of us who have been with the convention since JordanCon 1, it's hard to believe we're at year 10 already. The last decade has been a whirlwind of amazing experiences, treasured friendships and continual inspiration.

During the past seven years our artists have helped raised almost $6000 for Mayo Clinic's Amyloidosis Research fund, between Art Show sales, Charity Art Jam auctions, and our own special brand of "shenanigans," (on top of what the other Charity Events raise every year). Our Guests of Honor have included a Who's Who list of award-winning artists: Sam Weber, Michael Whelan, Larry Elmore, Todd Lockwood, John Picacio, and in 2017, the gracious and talented, Stephen Hickman. We've also been blessed with an equally amazing pool of returning artists who bring us a beautiful Art Show each year and who generously lend their time and talents to our Art Track, a full programming track of art-related panels, workshops and demonstrations that runs throughout the weekend.

But rest on our laurels, WE. WILL. NOT. But what we WILL do is return to where we began. Or almost.

Meet the Artist: Amy Romanczuk

In spite of her diminutive physical stature, Amy Romanczuk is a huge part of the JordanCon art family, someone who packs a lot of warmth, humor and talent into a small package. As an artist, her work is intensely intricate, unique and personal, loaded with symbolism and personal meaning -- but also imminently collectible. In 2015, she was awarded the People's Choice Award for Best 3D Art for a collection of her pysanky work titled "The White Tower Collection." While Amy regards herself chiefly as a folk artist, she is also an illustrator and designer, with many exhibitions and accolades for her work. If you want to see a smile that can light up a room, seek her out and ask her about it.
