It's that time of year again where many of us writers and readers and lovers alike make our way to a convention center in a chosen big city and revel in books and whisky and maybe attend a few panels. Of course, Black Ocean will be there to celebrate too, and we want to make sure you know exactly how to connect with us!
We have a double-wide table at the book fair again this year: R22 & R23. Come visit us and get all of our titles for only $10, plus a few special deals, as well as our in-person only Black Ocean / Black Metal t-shirts! In fact our whole aisle is worth visiting because we've managed to wrangle a cool set of neighbors: Action Books, Birds LLC, Gigantic Sequins, Spork Press, Rose Metal Press,Third Man Records, and Versal!
Author Book Signings
Swing by our table to meet some of our authors. You'll be able to get them to sign your books or your bodies, and take some sweet selfies.
