COMIC CON NEWS
The New York Comic Con was
FAN-tas-tic! I chatted with comic and manga fans from around the globe, and gained the latest insights into the graphic fiction, animation, and gaming industries. The pre-conference was centered on the digital world and how products were becoming more global and user-friendly.
As a columnist for RT Book Reviews Magazine, I interviewed PC Cast (check the January Issue to read her thoughts and see the exclusive art). I spoke with publishers about their hottest titles and shared details on the RT Book Lovers Convention in Los Angeles, CA in April 2011. Here’s the scoop: there is going to be a day full of events at this year’s convention centered on comics, manga, and graphic novels including author chats with Dean Koontz and Gregg Hurwitz. Also, Sea Lion Books will be giving away a comic contract. That’s right! You could win an opportunity to be published in comic form. Participants in the contest need to be registered with RT before February 1st and the details will be going up on the site soon. Check www.rtconvention.com for more details.
On a creator/writer’s front, over 3,000 promo items were taken by fans and I signed over three hundred items and/or books. PULSE OF POWER books sold out on the first day to the professional crowd, and fans surged Amazon.com with orders on Saturday and Sunday. Here’s an enormous THANK YOU to everyone who has supported the book!
