A-Kon — there and back again

Home at last from a wonder-filled trip to A-Kon, an amazing anime-based convention in Dallas. I’m going to do a bit of a reversal of my social media here; I had a lot of photos I wanted to post so that you all could share some of the adventure, but didn’t want to take up too much space here in my media library. Usually I write here, and share it on Facebook; this time I’m going to ask you, dear reader, to head on over to my Facebook artist page and take a look at my travelogue there. If you are not on Facebook, that’s OK; it’s a public page, and you can look at it through the link:

My trip on Facebook – have a look around while you’re there (not-so-subliminal-suggestion: hit the Like button if you like it!)

  1. I’ll have to check out Facebook soon, wouldn’t let me connect via phone… My bad.
    Looks like you had fun!


  2. That’s an incredibly attractive graphic novel you have there, Karen, with a handsome cast of characters. When and where can we get one of those for our very own? (The foregoing has been a planted comment but I bet some people will want to know!)


    • Haha! (for those just tuning in, that was the writer of “Spam and the Sasquatch” putting in a completely unbiased opinion and question!)

      The book is in proofreading as I write this, July 10; I’ve given it the once over and attached stickie notes to all the pages that I found that need changes (not only typos, but spacing, balloon sizing, that sort of thing). Now I’m bringing in the expert – my hubby Ron is one of the best proofreaders I know, with an uncanny ability to spot every spacing and typographical error know to humankind.

      I will have a small, first edition of the book printed before I go to Yukomicon in August, and hopefully a book launch here near the end of August.


I'd love to know — what do you think about this?
