Official Press Release
May is less than halfway in and already so much has happened!
We kicked off the month with Free Comic Book Day. This year we gave away copies of “M.I.S.//ing” Chapter 1 and “13″ trading card packs. Stores all over the country participated and we are starting to get back the reviews from retailers and customers who discovered our series for the first time. It’s always exciting when entirely new people find out about, and enjoy, our work.
We were also at the Latino Book and Family Festival. TUMBLE CREEK PRESS had a booth and I spoke on two panels “Where Art Speaks – Comics Books” and “Insights into the World of Publishing”. With the latter, my fellow panelists were a number of talented authors representing a vast swath of writing styles – from poetry to memoirs, cookbooks to children’s books. They were quite inspiring.
Just this past weekend was the Long Beach Comic Book Expo. I presented the white paper I co-developed with Dale Wilson of BuyIndieComic.com called “Indie Comics Marketing, Shoestring Budget“. If initial reactions are to be believed, the panel was really informative and helpful. We will probably present it again. I’ll let you know when.
We have some announcements coming soon regarding a couple of our series. Stay tuned for those tidbits as well as more on our summer convention touring schedule. So far, we have three shows booked for June. In July we will, of course, be returning to San Diego for Comic-Con International.
