Stew here, just got back from my first ever Con! It was a great learning experience and although it was a smaller one I’m very happy with the amount of books I sold. Nowhere near making table, but right now exposure is more important than direct sales.
My only complaint during the entire thing, is that I’m pretty sure I was given the worst spot in the show, by no means was this the fault of the organizers or anything. But I guess they sold 6-foot sections, but only had 8-foot tables, and so the spot to my left was owned by a vendor selling random nerdy wares and their space kind of filled most of my area. I lost a foot of my table space and then they put a clothes rack that covered up an additional six inches of my spot. But I won’t let stuff like this get me down, or act like this is a reason for less sales, as they say sometimes that’s just how the cookie crumbles. Here’s a picture:
Another crazy (the good kind of crazy) thing that happened at the Con is that my good friend Paul showed up, in real life. I haven’t seen my buddy for about 10 years and out of no where he shows up and gives me some support. He also runs a Let’s Play style YouTube & twitch Channel that I ask all of you to check out, and help support all of us under dogs!

My summer break is officially over and I am in overdrive mode to finish some things and get some fresh content out that I’ve been teasing all Summer long. Very soon I will have published the first 2 Verses of Star CX! How exciting is that! (very much).
My good friend and Art guy that I commissioned for making the cover art sent me the final cover and I have to say that this has me more excited about this project than I have been in weeks! I will save the picture for it’s own post as it totally deserves some hype and anticipation! Please check out more of his Art at http://sethjyoung.com/
