who's going to Small Press Expo in Bethesda, Maryland this weekend?!? i am! i won't have a table or be signing/exhibiting at all, i couldn't get a table before they sold out, but i'll walking around and hanging out and maybe sitting at nickmarino
's table off and on when i get tired of standing.
the roster of creators at SPX is great, so many good people all in one place: Lamar Abrams, Liz Suburbia, Yuko Ota, Ananth Panagariya, Spike Trotman, Heather & Michelle Nunnelly (OracularDream
), Rian Miller (rianmiller
), and a bunch of other people. the list of exhibitors is overwhelming because i don't think i've even heard of like 95% of these creators. i'm so out of the loop but that's also kind of exciting. i hope i don't forget to pick up Dustin Harbin's book.
even though i'm sure the trip will be fun, i always get anxiety before i go traveling. the closer the date approaches the less i want to go and the more on edge i feel. lately i've been feeling a vague, nebulous sense of dread, too, so that isn't helping. i feel like something is going to happen at some point in the future and i'm feeling the weight of it advancing on me through the flow of time or something, i don't know. i'm losing my mind!!!
anyway, as some of you may have seen, Wet Moon 6 came out a week ago as of today, so thank you again for everyone who's picked it up or waiting on picking it up or waiting on an order, and double thank you to everyone who sent me an email or left a comment to let me know what they thought of the book! now i gotta get working on volume 7!! i have it loosely outlined, along with loose outlines for the rest of the volumes leading up to the series' ending, and i think i have some pretty good stuff. more Nissa and Nora! maybe it's stupid introducing new characters this late in the series but i gotta do what i gotta do.
finally, if you haven't yet don't forget to vote on my Annual Halloween Movie Monster poll!!! right here!!
for those of you unfamiliar, every year since 2005 i've been drawing a different horror movie monster, you can check out the previous years here.
