After some date-wrangling, number-crunching and budget-scrunching, it looks like I have my convention schedule for the rest of the year.
I'm going to be busier than I thought.
- AnimeNext (June 18-20, central NJ).
- Otakon (July 30-August 1, Baltimore, MD).
- AnimeFest! (Sept 3-6, Dallas, TX)
- NYAF (New York Anime Festival) (Oct 8-10, NYC)
I'm working on setting up sales tables for each event under the Genji Press banner. No guarantees of anything except perhaps the first two, but Otakon by itself would be a massive step in the right direction. NYAF, a nice cherry on top of an already-tasty cake.
I'm also hoping to have CreateSpace / Amazon.com editions of all my books by the second half of the year. I've seen plenty of good reasons to go with them, and to wind down my involvement with Lulu. The purchasing links on the site should not change anytime soon; there will be plenty of advanced warning before that happens.
I'll have more word on each event as the dates draw closer.
