The cheery, chocolate loving Amber Royer, debut author of the upcoming Free Chocolate, will be putting in appearances from afternoon tea to workshops that you won’t need a golden ticket for – though we would still encourage the obsessive purchase of chocolate. Here’s where Amber will be over the next couple of weeks: ConDFW Between 16-18 February Amber will be on several panels at the Radisson Hotel Fort Worth sitting on panels on short story writing, the lone pilots of space opera, writing comedy and more. Find out more here. Fresh Fiction Afternoon Tea Afternoon tea with Amber will be held on 10 March at the Chocolate Angel Cafe, in Richardson, TX. Amber will be there to chat, talk about current reads, and definitely to eat chocolate. Tickets on sale now. Writing Workshop – Writing Characters People Get Attached To On 11 March between 4pm-7pm Amber will be presenting a seminar on writing characters with Writing Workshops Dallas. If you want to learn from an author who remembers just starting out then book your tickets to attend and meet at The Foundry Club at Mockingbird Station, Dallas, or watch a livestream if you’re busy in space trading in cacao. Wordfest Check out the coming Wordfest events for 24 March to meet and learn from Amber at the Students Union Building in Tarrant County College, Hurst TX between 9am-4pm no need to buy tickets, just register and turn up. Writing Workshop – Villains as the Mirror of Heroes Amber will return to Writing Workshops Dallas on 1 April to give a seminar on villains and their relationship with their heroic counterparts. Again the seminar will run between 4pm-7pm at The Foundry Club and will be livestreamed for those who can’t make it. Don’t forget to buy your tickets. This should stave off those Free Chocolate cravings until the release in June!
