Let's see if I can write a quick post, shall we?
So this week, Bec and I are heading to Supanova Melbourne to promote and sell Kinds of Blue, our anthology of short comics about depression. We've got a table in Artists Alley (Table Y, I believe!) If you're going to be there, please stop by and say hi!
I'm a little nervous about the trip—mostly because of all the unknowns and stuff I can't control (yeah, classic control freak!) But I think it will be a good experience, and anyway, Bec and I will have fun and enjoy Melbourne, even if we don't sell that many books or give out many postcards. (In my mind, it's more important that we give away those postcards; I would rather that people read us online, with some hopefully then purchasing Kinds of Blue in print, than no one reading us at all.)
Oh, and because most people who aren't nerds don't know what Supanova is, it's a pop culture convention encompassing everything from comics to movies to anime to gaming, and so on, and it runs every year in Sydney, Brisbane, Melbourne, Perth and now Adelaide. We have budgeted this year to attend Melbourne, Sydney (in June) and Brisbane (in November).
