Right, so it’s almost time. Now, I’ve been to conventions before, even been to conventions for ‘business’ reasons. The last two Pensacons I’ve attended have been more for promotion and networking than just for the fun of it. Mobicon, though, will be the first time I’ll be sitting at a table, trying to get you to buy my books.
It’s a step forward, but it’s a step on uncertain ground. At least psychologically, this could be a make-or-break moment. It’s one thing to sit back, behind the shield of the internet, and excuse away any lack of success or moments of failure as there’s a certain distance involved. This, though, will be personal, face-to-face, nitty-gritty. Basically, this is where I either grow up or drop out.
Well, not so dramatic as that, of course! While this is a stressful moment, it would also be short sighted to lay everything on one convention, especially my first! No, while this will remain a big step, it’s entirely a step forward, a step in the right direction. At worst, it will be a learning experience, letting me know what I need to do for future conventions. At best, I’ll come home with empty book boxes and the knowledge that I’m doing things the right way. Either way, it’ll be fun!
In other quick news, my free promotion for Indomitable went like gangbusters. Just a reminder, though, that all of The Push Chronicles are available for free through Kindle Unlimited. If you have that, swing by my Released Books list and start reading! Also, don’t forget that The Songstress Murders will be released at the start of Mobicon! You can still pre-order your Kindle copy from Amazon. Physical copies will be available for order around the time of the e-book release.
Until next time, good reading, good writing, and good luck!
