Engen authors Matthew LeDrew and Ellen Curtis were present at the 24th annual Polaris convention from July 16th-18th 2010.
The convention was a huge success, bringing together such acclaimed actors as Alaina Huffman (Stargate Universe), Mark Sheppard (Firefly), Lindsay Wagner (Bionic Woman) and Kai Own (Torchwood).
“I had a really great time,” commented Infinity co-author Ellen Curtis. “The convention was huge and had a lot to offer. I can’t wait to go back.”
There were also over twenty authors on site, including Nikki Stafford (Finding Lost), Julie E. Czerneda (Rift in the Sky) and, of course, Kenneth Tam (Defense Command).
“It’s always a delight to see Ken,” said LeDrew. “He’s got some new books in both the Defense Command and New World series’ that are calling from my bookcase even now. I also had a lot of fun doing a signing with Violette Malan, who has an amazing fantasy series I can’t wait to sink my teeth into.”
The Engen team did more than just sell books with this convention though, taking the opportunity to network and meet other creative-minded people.
One such group was the cast and crew of Mind’s Eye, a Synn Studios production starting this November and airing in weekly six-minute episodes online.
“They had one of the most amazing presentations I’ve ever seen,” said LeDrew. “I can’t wait to see what these guys have coming up in the future. It’s going to be huge.”
