• YALC 2021

    22 July 2021

    YALC -- the UK's official YA Lit Con -- has been held in London since 2014, as part of the Film & Comic Con. I was a guest each of its first three years, but haven't been back since then, as I haven't been touring for a while. Last year, because of COVID, they couldn't run the event in person, so they did online events. They've had to do that this year too, and while that's for the most part a crying shame, it DOES have at least one small upside -- I was invited back to take part in this year's virtual event, and because it's online, it means it can be viewed by an unlimited number of people, anywhere in the world... and it's FREE!!!


    I recorded a video panel interview recently, with fellow authors Garth Nix, C. L. Clark and Hafsah Faizal. It was a nice, relaxed chat, in which we talked about the fantasy genre and the worlds that we create. I had fun participating, and hopefully you guys will enjoy it too.


    The video will be posted to the YALC YouTube channel during the weekend of August 6th, and as far as I'm aware you'll be able to watch it any time after that, at least for a while. I'll post a link to the video once it's up, but in the meantime you can check out the YALC site to see who else they've got lined up for the weekend, by clicking here: https://londonfilmandcomiccon.com/YALC/yalc-at-home-2021/




    I mention my new Archibald Lox series during the event. To find out more about it, read the July issue of the Darren Shan newsletter: https://darrenshan.com/news/shanville-monthly
