2016 Book Tour Ends this Saturday at ComiqueCon

Saturday is your last chance to come out to one of my book-signings this year.  The schedule for Comique Con sounds so awesome, it’s going to be difficult for me to stay behind my table. See the full schedule here.

WW GAME starter kitI signed up for a half-table, so the items that will be on display for sale will be scaled back. After looking at photos of my table from Monroe Comic Con, I was surprised at how much stuff I had! The featured goodies I will have at Comique Con will be The Sick Rose Vampires books, Wonderful Drinking Game posters and starter kits, and the debut of my new limited edition “Girl Fight” print with Harley Quinn and Batgirl. And again, free #IndieBooksBeSeen catalogs and Harley/Joker coloring sheets!

Monroe Comic Con This Saturday!

I’m happy to remind you that a huge convention appearance is coming up this Saturday in Monroe, Michigan! There will be 200 tables of comics, art, toys, crafts, cosplay, celebrity guests, panels, and yours truly! I attended Monroe Comic Con last year as a cosplayer and it was great! It was my official first attempt at cosplaying, which makes it my one year anniversary of cosplaying. It feels much longer (especially since I’ve already placed 3rd as Lady Penguin at Redford Comic Con and judged two days of Taylor Town cosplay contests in my first year)!

This year at Monroe Comic Con, I will be cosplaying as a local artist and published author and illustrator of vampire books. 😉 I encourage you to attend the Alloy Ash cosplay panel. I consider her my cosplay fairy godmother. She got me into cosplay after I attended a panel of hers at Motor City Comic Con 2015. I got to met her and thank her for the inspiration at Monroe last year!

In addition to my COSPLAnniversary fast approaching, I must share that today is the two-year anniversary of my first published book, Blood & Alcohol! It is available in paperback from Amazon, Createspace, my Sick Shoppe, and I will have copies at Monroe Comic Con. If you buy my first and second book together, you get 10% off at the show! See you soon!

Taylor Town Comic Con

If you missed “The Big Show” this past weekend at the Taylor Town Trade Center in Taylor, Michigan, you missed a lot of fun! I was not tabling at this two day event hosted by yourcomiccon.com’s John Kalel, but I made it out Saturday to cosplay Lady Penguin with some of my friends as Batman villains and compete in the cosplay contest. The Rogues Gallery ended up getting in on this awesome DC Universe group photo after the contest.

A full write-up on the convention including three more photos of my Lady Penguin cosplay by Dark Knight News can be seen here.

If you weren’t able to make Taylor Town Comic Con, John’s next show is Ypsilanti Comic Con on September 24! I will be back behind the vendor’s table selling and signing books and art. If you’ve been holding out on attending one of the yourcomiccon.com shows, now’s the time to join us. Tickets are only $3! This will be a smaller scale one-day show packed with comics, art, toys, and cosplay. There’s a reason why I still go to all of John’s shows even when I’m not tabling. It’s called FUN! See for yourself! RSVP on facebook here: https://www.facebook.com/events/258091981249189/

I’ve also just uploaded a new promo video for The Sick Rose Vampires. It follows the journey of Elend Arcana so far in the series. All music is written and performed by yours truly! I hope you like it!

Redford Comic Con Recap and News

redford comic con promo valentine

The Redford Comic Con happened on January 23rd, but it’s still worth talking about because it’s been my favorite comic con appearance yet. The venue was spacious, the vendors and attendees were friendly, and I gave away all my free gifts! And I can’t forget to mention that it was my FIRST LIVE INTERVIEW EVER with Crazy Mark TV!

crazy-mark-book-banner1

Interview begins at the 12:30 mark

John Kalel, host of the Redford Comic Con, puts on a great con and hosts several in southeast Michigan throughout the year. I look forward to being a guest at another one of his shows in the future. I’m building contacts with other artists and comic creators in the area and I’m really impressed with this community. Be sure to check out all of John’s future shows at his website, yourcomiccon.com. There is always something for everyone!

Since Redford Comic Con, I’ve also done an interview with Dark Knight News, applied to be a part of Ladies Night Anthology Volume Four, and was accepted into Artist Alley for Monroe Comic Con in October.dknlogo1

The Ladies Night Anthology is a collaboration of women comic writers, artists, and editors based out of Chicago. I was lucky to meet some of the past contributors at Comique Con in November. I applied as an artist, and if I’m accepted I will be matched up with a writer and editor. I will find out if I’m accepted by the middle of this month.

I also took out a spot for Blood & Alcohol in the #indiebooksbeseen catalog for 2016. It’s a catalog of books by indie authors that ships all over the world and features a grab bag of genres. Since the style of my book is so unique I’m excited to expose it to novel readers while supporting fellow indie authors.

Meanwhile, I’m still plugging away at illustrations for Skin of the Night. I’m two drawings away from my goal for this book, but have discovered I’m probably going to need about ten more. This book will be slightly longer than the first. I thought about cutting out the entire last scene to just get it done with, but it would disrupt the flow of the series. Thank you for your patience while I juggle many hats. I promise The Sick Rose fans that it’s worth it!

Sick Shoppe is back!

0

I survived this crazy month of two comic book conventions!

The DoctorsFirst was Comique Con, which afforded me priceless networking opportunities with other lady comic book creators and women involved in making comic books. I was also able to attend an intersectionality and diversity in comics panel which set me on a researching mission to learn more about representing biracial main characters in The Sick Rose Vampires. I will be looking forward to reporting back on that later.

cosplay judge Rich GarlandLast weekend was Taylor Town Comic Con held during a snow storm in Michigan. The turn out was a reflection of the weather, but again allowed me to make new friends and touch base with old ones. And I had an absolute blast judging the cosplay contest!

I’m happy and grateful that I made it through doing conventions and now will have more time to get back to finishing Skin of the Night.  However, the most important thing that I wanted to share with this post is that the Sick Shoppe is back up and running for the holidays! So if you weren’t able to make it out to a con or saw something there that you liked, you can now order it online! I’m offering FREE SHIPPING on everything through Cyber Monday!
