Today I attended ToyMan Toy Show in St. Louis selling my books. I wasn’t sure what to expect…I mean, it’s a toy show. Not a book show or a comic show or anything even remotely like any of the conventions I’ve been to so far. But they usually have a handful of authors, so I figured it was worth a shot. Boy was I right! I went in not sure if I’d sell any books, and I sold a lot more than none. Enough that when Chris, the promoter, asked me if I’d want to come back I immediately said, “Definitely!” without even thinking. So if you’re in St. Louis, come on out on May 11 to the ToyMan Toy Show and say hello!
I’m really excited about the things I have in the works this year. I’m going to be at every Toy Show for the rest of this year (except for the one in July, when I’ll be in Portland.) I have a few other cons already booked. Plus Chris is putting together a Geek Fest the last weekend of December where I’ll be selling my books. It sounds like it’s going to be truly amazing so keep an eye out for more info – I’ll post a link to the site once he has it up and running. I have a really good feeling about my writing business for this year and next. And I have to thank you, my readers, for giving me that feeling. Because without you all buying my books and talking to me at conventions, I’d just be hiding in my office writing for myself.
