So, I’m going to be at Asheville Anime Regional Convention on July 26th (the only day it’s happening.) I hope no one felt cheated by coming to see me at Heroes when it would have been more convenient to see me in Asheville! I didn’t even know I’d be attending until I did some more research when coming down off of the exciting high of doing Heroes.
At a glance, it seems like I’m suddenly doing the convention circuit, but since I announced Heroes, I get asked a certain question a lot.
“When are you coming to the convention in _________?”
I’m sorry, but probably no time soon! I rely entirely on my little car that could and keeping my costs to the bare minimum. If I did every convention I wanted to do, I’d be broke!
Feel free to recommend any convention that’s within an hour or two of Greenville, SC, but even then I might not be able to do multi-day conventions. Travel and hotels really add up! I’m also not going to be doing Dragoncon this year, but I will strongly consider it for next year.
I’ve also decided to focus more on anime and webcomic-specific conventions. They tend to be cheaper for both you and me, and have more fan overlap than with superhero/comic book conventions.
