ACE Comic Con Recap

This was an enormous weekend on so many fronts! It’s hard to go into the depth of the experience without spinning a legend, so I’ll sketch the merest outline.

First, some thanks to Stephen Shamus, the man with the plan! Making the calls to make it all happen, he’s a top rock star getting us all working together. With actress Mandy Rivera.

Here’s a small highlight of conventiongoing characters who took a moment with a Bones of Starlight book:

Here are some well-known entertainers who I had the pleasure of meeting, with thanks to those who made it possible – all of whom personally accepted a copy of my latest novel, Bones of Starlight: Abyss Surrounding.

 

And here’s your humble author – felicitations to all who now have a new book from me!

Extra Bonus: Pride Weekend! I joined NorwesCon this year to walk in Seattle Pride Parade. I went dressed as a Muse – both in the classical sense of a figure that inspires others to create, and with resemblance to the mechanical muses from comicbook Girl Genius! I bore a scroll painted by Leo Shallat, photo by writer Phil Foglio.

That’ll be both WorldCon’s and my first time in Ireland. Happy to present for WorldCon again, having done so in Kansas City and Helsinki. This year’s roster is already amazing, and neat to be with WorldCon while breaking new ground for both of us.

Ace Comic Con Seattle 2019

An advanced note to let you know I’m confirmed as an Artist Alley exhibitor for ACE Comic Con Seattle 2019! This traveling celebrity convention has welcomed me to exhibit in the Chicago & Phoenix areas, and I’m happy to join them as they return to my locality of Seattle, where I first checked them out last summer.

My moment at the top of the creator’s list, by the excellent interview host of the AZ celebrity panels.

And of course, the supporting talent (actually, in a significant way they are supporting the lesser-known exhibitors with their big names and audience draw while people make the most of their day tickets by exploring the entire hall):
