An Honourable Furry

I am both shaken and stirred to announce that I have been chosen as Guest of Honour at Fur the More 2019, to be held in Tysons Corner, Virginia, from 15th - 17th March next year.

This will be the convention’s seventh year, so the theme is Fur the More 007: Furry Never Dies. (I know. I can’t think why they picked me, either.)

It’s a great honour and an amazing opportunity - one that might only come my way once - and I plan to enjoy it to the full.

Guest of Honour duties include taking part in events, hosting panels and, oh gosh, probably making a speech or something, help.

I’ll never forget that at my first furry convention, ConFuzzled 2013, the GOH was the lovely Kyell Gold, who was incredibly kind to me at a time when I was just starting out as a writer. It was a huge boost and it really made the con for me. It would be wonderful if I could do that for someone else.

I am, of course, suffering pretty massively from impostor syndrome; I know plenty of furry writers who are much more talented, hard-working and deserving than I am.

But, in fairness, I don’t know many who are quite so keen on James Bond.

I will try my absolute best to be a good ambassador, and I look forward to keeping the British end up in Virginia.
