I had a blast at the Phoenix Comicon. It ended Sunday evening then we drove home Monday afternoon. I’m super happy I chose a Comicon as my first public appearance. The atmosphere was friendly and creative. I met so many awesome artists and writers and got to see so much cool artwork.
I had around … 150-200 people stop by my table, I’d say, and gave away a ton of minibooks and bookmarks. A few of them came back after reading the minibooks to tell me they’d either downloaded a bunch of books or they bought the few I had. (I ended up having a small box of books in my trunk I meant to send my sister for our journey to New York. Lucky me!!) I also had 6 people who either approached me because they already had one or more of my books already or recognized my name from their Kindle explorations. ISN’T THAT INCREDIBLE? I thought so! I was blown away.
And I also spoke to a really nice gentleman who owns a comic book store around Phoenix (and is soon opening a second) who’s interested in me working with a team he’s putting together in Spring. He’s been looking for a writer he felt was right for his project – to start new comic book series. He said he had ideas or would be open to maybe using one of my series as a basis. Which I thought was AWESOME! Nothing firm is in place yet, and I’d have to do some learnin’ of comic book script writing, but what an incredible honor to be considered!
Who wants a Rhyn or Damian comic?
I am so going back next year!!
