Upcoming: Ace Comic Con Northeast

Screen Shot 2020-01-08 at 11.09.17 PM

It’ll be a while yet, but I’m on board again with the stellar Ace crew to make a presence in Artist Alley. From the folks behind Wizard World, recently featured in Forbes, Ace Comic Con is top notch fun with people who come from all over to meet the favorites they know and don’t know yet.

Looking forward to seeing Boston again! Great book city.

I remember looking around inside the first of these that I attended, realizing that in that one building we had approximately enough for a movie crew, and it looked like that sort of place, too. And how else are we to find them, the people who could possibly care enough to make a life out of it? This is one way for sure. I’ve made some truly interesting and inspiring friends within this scene over the past year, as it’s appeared around the country. I’m not at every show, but I’ve presented 3 of 4 over the previous year! Good crowd.

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.

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):

ACE AZ Recap

I’m grateful for a really amazing time in Glendale, AZ with the recent ACE Comic Con! To every last book that found a new home, I hope it’s a happy one. Whatever you thought, do send/post your official review. I love the responses I’ve gotten during the convention – like nothing they’ve ever read, in scope as well as otherwise, poetic yet succinct. I’m glad Bones of Starlight is finding people who want something that is exactly this!

I chose the following cosplay characters as clue-ins to pose with the latest book…

And these ‘characters’ (a way of referring to actual people, which the following are!) got their own copies, along with the others:

Thanks to the great crew, the cool venue, the amazing guests, and the wonderful audience. Sunrise on the saguaro & music in the heart of Phoenix! Star-studded weather with a rain dance.

Ace Comic Con Arizona

It’s ACE Comic Con weekend in Glendale/Phoenix, Arizona! The Gila River Arena is a unique sort of place to transform into a convention, and I’m feeling the power of pop star performances like The Rolling Stones, Elton John, Madonna & Justin Timberlake. Yes… we certainly have something in common.
