Updated…because I can.
Or – in case the video doesn’t show up, you can see the new slideshow on my “About” page.
Just in case you didn’t see it, or see it clearly in the photos from the Comic Con on my author page – here it is:
Thank you, David Pirkle! And yes, you too, can have a ray gun or other really fantastical and unique items. Just visit his Pirkleations Etsy page!
I received a message on Facebook from someone who bought one of my books at the Dover Comic Con yesterday (Deuces Wild: Beginners’ Luck). He had gone home, immediately read the whole thing, and liked it so much he contacted me the same night to tell me so.
That’s the sort of thing that keeps a writer writing! Thank you, Gene!
So – is it legal to have so much fun? I had a blast – and it was great to share it with family and friends. Selling books was nice too, although I did sigh a few times that I had to be at my table and not just wandering about the whole day. I also went on a guilt trip because I actually had fans who came up and asked when the next books in the series were going to be out!
And I had a costume this year – it was an attempt to show off bit of each genre in which I have books published, which might have made for a bit of confusion but I think I looked all right, and that’s all that counts!
A few highlights: Mario and Luigi were there, and several Doctors – and the TARDIS. Light and L made an appearance, as well as some stormtroopers and Boba Fett (I challenged him with my ray gun and he ducked outside – that shows what he’s made of!), Ghostbusters and steampunk Ghostbusters, a weeping angel, Harry Potter, tons of superheroes, and too many more to mention.
I have a few photos, but instead of posting them here (because WordPress and I argue too much about wrapping text), I’m putting them on my Facebook author’s page.
It’s almost here – Dover Comic Con:
Saturday, 8 August from 10 a.m. to 7 p.m.
Admission is free.
I hope to see you there!
