-- While putting the finishing touches on the interdimensional coming-of-age novel, Mind the Portal
, author J.S. Devivre was contacted by the programmers at Baycon, Northern California's longest running Sci-Fi and Fantasy convention, to present the omniverse depicted in her book, sight unseen, words unread.
Surprised by the invitation to represent the as yet unfamiliar omniverse, Devivre remarked, "I think it shows an infectious spirit of adventure on the part of Baycon's frontrunners to invite an unknown entity to serve as a presenter at such an established event. I hope they know what they've gotten themselves into. Once you delve into the omniverse, there's no going back."
The element-based Academy of Omniosophical Arts & Sciences that serves as the location for Mind the Portal is a far cry from being merely a fictional façade. The school is an actual entity offering live events, online classes, original language instruction, and even a Qamp Omni cruise.
Chosen specifically to serve Baycon's 2018 theme, PatchWork Fandom: Stitching The Generations Together
, the academy's booth will feature a variety of omniversal tomes all created to support the launch of Mind the Portal
, along with interactive classes, crafts, and possibly an academy-themed tea party.Mind the Portal
is now available in both e-book and paperback formats. For more information on the academy, visit http://www.omniosophicalacademy.com
