LUNA CON 2017

Westchester Marriott

April 7-9 2017

The cosmic convergence of “The Fearless Girl” and “Fearless Broads.”

I will be at LunaCon this year, along with several other members of Broad Universe. We’ll be doing our Rapid Fire Reading on Saturday night, followed by a book signing.

I’ll be in the dealer’s room Saturday and Sunday, along with April Grey and Amy Grech, featuring a variety of urban fantasy, paranormal romance, and horror titles.

And oh the panels!  Feminism is on everyone’s mind these days. Here’s my lineup:

Carrie Fisher: More Than a Princess 

Sat 1:00 PM

We remember Carrie, and discuss her achievements.
Prospective participant information More than just a memory panel, we discuss how arrive changed perceptions for women, mental illness, actors.

Strong Heroines in a Changing World

Sat 3:00 PM

 With so many women feeling threatened by current events, strong female characters feel more necessary than ever. How do we create heroines who are both tough and sympathetic? How does a character’s gender limit–or expand–the possibilities? And can fiction actually impact the real-life challenges we face?

Feminism in Harry Potter 

Sun 2:00 PM

 Let’s discuss the female characters in Harry Potter, their roles, and what was done well, or not. What would be the next steps for a strong feminist character?

About Carole Ann

Carole Ann Moleti lives and works as a nurse-midwife in New York City, thus explaining her fascination with all things paranormal, urban fantasy, and space opera. Her nonfiction, ranging from sweet and sentimental to edgy and irreverent, focuses on health care, politics, and women's issues. But her first love is writing science fiction and fantasy because walking through walls is less painful than running into them. Carole's short fiction has been featured in a variety of speculative fiction venues, most recently the Toil Trouble and Temptation Anthology from Mocha Memoirs Press. Her review and commentary has appeared in Lightspeed, The Internet Review of Science Fiction, Tangent Online, The Portal, and The Fix. Short stories set in the world of her novels are featured in Haunted: Ten Tales of Ghosts, Bites: Ten Tales of Vampires, Beltane: Ten Tales of Magic, and Seers: Ten Tales of Clairvoyance. The first book in Carole's Cape Cod paranormal romance novel series, The Widow's Walk, was published by Soulmate in November 2014. Her memoir, Someday I'm Going to Write a Book: Diary of an Urban Missionary, chronicles a career as a public health professional in some of the City's most dangerous areas, including the South Bronx, Harlem, and Washington Heights. The title of Carole's mommy memoir, Karma, Kickbacks and Kids, is self-explanatory. Award winning excerpts have been published in a variety of literary venues, including Oasis Journal, This Path, A Quilt of Holidays, The Shifts Anthology and the Not Your Mother's Books: On Being a Woman and On Being a Parent.
