Successful Convention

It's funny to think that my measure on whether or not a convention was successful, is measured in how many pitches did I make, how many new projects did I pick up, and what other writing opportunities landed in my lap. Or even, did I find a new talent for something I'm working on?

This was the realization I came to at the end of Denver Comic Con this year. Did I accomplish the above? Absolutely! Am I going to talk about them? Not right now.

Instead, I'm concentrating on finishing this year's projects, even while I start planning years. Mind you, this is all in between working a full-time job, taking care of the house & the cats, and still having time to enjoy life. The latter very important to keeping me physically, emotionally and mentally healthy.

So, Denver Comic Con was very successful for me. Besides, the children loved the pipe cleaner dragons I gave away. More than one parent said 'Thank you.' That would have been success enough.

Denver Comic Con and other news

Different Dragons 2 update. Two stories edited and returned to the authors. Contracts sent out. Will be meeting with an artist who would like to do the cover with in the next couple of weeks.

Received news that my story, Failure, was accepted for Zombified II. My little tale is certainly an odd take on zombies.

Have the edits for my next book God's Gift. That'll be my next project after I finish the edits for DD2.

I'll be at the Denver Comic Con on Saturday only. I normally hang out at the WolfSinger Publications booth. Will be giving hand made pipe cleaner dragons away. Hoping to talk to fellow writers who I know will be attending. Drop by and say 'Hi!'
