Local Authors and so much more at Penned Con

Local Authors and so much more at Penned Con
Brad R. Cook

PENNED CON 2016, is a book fair featuring over 150 authors from across the country and locally from Missouri and Illinois. The event takes place on September 23 and 24, 2016 and offers a chance to learn from industry leaders about how to publish, market and grow your brand, join us for our keynote speakers, join in with games hosted by authors, panels, a luau awards ceremony and more! Penned Con is all about charity too, 100% of their profits from the event go to Action for Autism based in St. Louis. Since starting Penned Con in 2014 they have donated over $21,000 to the Penned Con Scholarship Fund and helped 6 families in the St. Louis area with therapy services.

If you want to learn more about their charity work check out my earlier post about Penned Con.

This time I wanted to focus on the authors who will be at Penned Con. It’s one of the largest lists of authors from varying genres that I have ever seen. If you like books, or need a gift for the book lover in your life you won’t want to miss this event.

Here is a list of the 150 authors who will be attending.

Some of the local authors who will be there include:

Eric Asher
Nicole Evelina
Claudia Shelton
Maggie Adams
Mark Pannebecker
Alexis Kennedy
Amy Hale
David Lucas – panelist

And those are just the authors I know about, I’m sure there are more. For a complete list of authors and links to their books visit

There are more than just authors, Penned Con has panels as well.
