Team TFMU is pleased to announce the
2014 Author’s Panel

The Author’s Panel is one of the biggest draws to attend TFMU. We know this because we’re fangirls, too! So, are you ready to know who will be there?? Please welcome the following authors who have agreed to give us their time during 2014 TFMU - Nashville:


We feel lucky to have such a wide range of writers at this year’s event. We have created a TFMU profile so you can easily look over the writer’s list of stories and become familiar with their words. We hope you have some questions for our panel as well regarding their stories and writing style.

This year’s panel will be in a different format after receiving your input from last year and questionnaires. We think you’ll enjoy it.

Our fandom's very own MsKathy will be hosting/moderating.

Right now we have right at 100 great ladies signed up to attend. We have peeps coming from as far away as Sweden, England, and Australia. Just proves how dedicated we are to FanFic, and the number of talented writers that keep us reading their words.

Go read... and get ready to fangirl!! We can't wait to see you in Nashville!

Mindy, Michelle, and Kathy

With less than 30 days before we are all traveling to Tennessee, we thought you would like more info about our Pub Crawl.  Saturday night we will all be heading out for some sightseeing and cocktails with the Hick Chick Tour gals.  Here is an excerpt from their website.


Honky Tonk Pub Crawl

Nashville's ORIGINAL Pub Crawl!

Get a Sampling of the Incredible Music of Nashville!

Don't be fooled by the imtiations.  A pub crawl in Music City that doesn't give you the experience of music isn't a real pub crawl.  Other pub crawls last 2 hours and only go to 3 bars and you don't even get to listen to the wonderful music Nashville has to offer.  Instead, they entertain you with TRIVIA?  Really?! That's not what I call entertainment!  With the Honky Tonk Pub Crawl, you see more historical spots, hear more stories, and listen to more music than on any other tour in Music City.  You'll be Drinkin' and Learnin'!
Nashville's BEST Walking Tour/Pub Crawl Combo! You get to do a pub crawl while, at the same time, taking a walking sightseeing tour of downtown Nashville along the way! No one else can offer you that. Let a local show you how it's done! This isn't just a drinking tour; it's a tasting of the variety of musical talent that Nashville has to offer. You will also learn about Music City's rich history with its musical legends, pioneer settlers, brothels and gambling.  When you finish this tour, you will see sights, learn about Nashville's history as well as its seedier past, and get a sampling of the different styles of music in downtown Music City.
Patrons will not only get a good time, but they will receive discounts and freebies to bars and restaurants downtown. You'll get much more bang for your buck!
