See you there THIS WEEKEND (November 5-7). Seriously. I know, I’m stoked too.
After a seemingly endless time without fun things like mega shows and networking events, the fog has cleared and we’re BACK, BABY.
Ugh it’s going to be SO MUCH FUN. I’ll be speaking on a panel and signing books for you. And I’m doing a little raffle too, but you gotta follow my Instagram page to read about it…
Being an author is typically a solitary job. Like there’s just not a lot of socializing when you’re bent over your laptop all day. But that’s okay – definitely the name of the game. But the REAL FUN happens when events like ComicCon come around again. It’s just crowds of new readers flying through that you can meet and form new connections with. I love it, even if I know people that wouldn’t vibe so well in large crowds like that.
If you’re relatively new to the whole idea of ComicCon, you might find this recent article I wrote for Inkitt to be helpful (especially if you’re selling books like I am). Selling books (or really anything) in this format requires a certain level of excitement and energy that definitely drains you FAST. If you don’t take care of yourself throughout the ordeal, you’re gonna feel the effects of it. But it’ll stretch your people skills farther than you ever thought possible! And I am so looking forward to meeting more new readers.
I’ve published not one but TWO new books since I’ve last been at ComicCon. It’s true! And I am SO PROUD of The Rewind Duology. This book series challenged me in ways I didn’t expect, because it documented me healing from past frustrations and growing up in real time. As you read it, you’ll see the evolution for Vera from a frustrated college-aged adult to a badass vigilante who learns how to forgive. And yes, those two things can exist at the same time. I’m living proof of that.
As the holiday season looms just around the corner, I’m so excited to meet so many new readers and share my stories with others. Hopefully I’ll see you at Rhode Island ComicCon this upcoming weekend – but if not, thank you for your online support. Here’s to more bookish goodness in the coming months 🙂
P.S. – Have you seen my new website yet? Ugh, I am SO PROUD OF THIS ONE. Please take a look, and then let me know what you think!
