I would highly encourage authors, writers, and artists if they can afford it, go to the San Diego Comic Con at least once.
Sure there is plenty of eye candy (movie stars, toys, creative costumes, etc) but I am referring to the people you meet and converse with.
There are so many indie writers and artists walking around.
It’s easy to strike up a dialogue. Being an (aspiring?) writer myself, it is helpful to be around so much creativity and get tips on the trade.
I met a few gentleman starting a new comic line called Vault Comics and purchased advanced previews of their books (Failsafe, Colossi, Karma Police, Fissure, Powerless). Good stuff with fresh artwork.
Also of importance, they were just a bunch of cool fellows.
I will be checking out their books when they hit the shelves Feb 2017.
That’s all for now. Stay tuned for the release of Temet Nosce (Know Thy Self) Book Three of the Opportvnvs Adest series. I will dropping tidbits about it in the coming days.
Oh, if you have not checked out the previous two stories, do yourselves a favor and pick them up…….you just may be glad you did.
