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. ūüėČ 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!

Book bundles will be available if you are picking up both books in the series. There will be a discount if you purchase both books together, or bring in your first book to get it signed and get a discount on the second! I’m continuing the sale on trinket boxes at the show while supplies last.

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!

I’ve made another promotional video for the new book. I’ve enjoyed learning to make videos so much that I made one for my first book, Blood & Alcohol, and reopened my Youtube channel.

Kids Cosplay Contest, My Fans & Store Updates

0

Hello, everyone! I hope you are all retaining your sanity during¬†this holiday season. Today I bring to you video footage of the Kids Cosplay Contest at the last Taylor Town Comic Con as created¬†by Crazy Mark TV. Judging the cosplay contests is the most fun I’ve ever had at a con. The other seasoned judges were very welcoming. The turnout for the kids portion of the contest is a reflection of the nasty weather we had that day. You can see for yourself in the background of the video how bad it was! Crazy Mark does a fabulous job hosting the contest and filming these types of events in the area. His videos are always entertaining. Check out his website:¬†www.crazymark.com

I also want to take this opportunity to thank my loyal fans. Activity on my facebook fan page this week is up across the board, with the exception of new “likes”. So thank you, for interacting with and sharing my page. I know facebook settings make it difficult for fan page posts to show up in the news feeds because they want us to pay for it. You can circumvent this¬†setting¬†now in a couple of different ways. First, go to my facebook page and hover your mouse over the “Liked” button. Then tweak as illustrated by the diagram below:

FB

I like to post stuff relating to vampires, comics, writing, and making art. There’s a lot of extras that you can see there as well as twitter¬†that you won’t see here. I thank you all for sharing and following me on social media. Because of you I am now nearing 500 fans across my social media platforms! I am most certain with your help I can get there by New Year’s!

As I stall on finishing my second book, I’ve added new items for purchase at the Sick Shoppe, including prints, bookmarks, and one-of-a-kind trinket boxes. I wanted to make as much as I have available to¬†purchase online for the holiday season, as I don’t have any shows scheduled for the rest of the year or yet for 2016. I will announce as show dates are booked for next year. Thank you!
