As the crowd of fans flood into the massive Denver Convention Center, they’re herded through rows and rows of Artisans, Illustrators and Authors. Booths full of artwork, books, t-shirts, collectibles and handcrafted goods draw them in. The booth owners are calm, prepared and ready to share their wares with anyone interested.
Calm. Prepared. It’s early June – three weeks before Comic Con – and I am neither calm or fully prepared. Yet. But I’m getting there. June is a kind of frantic wonderful chaos. I’ve been gathering materials and ideas for the past several months. These last few weeks before DCC are a time of pulling things together and testing ideas. It’s the time of year when solitary writers tear themselves away from their manuscripts and step out into the world again. It’s publicity time!
I kicked off June with an awesome interview at the Breckenridge Brewery – Littleton, CO. The crew from Groovey.TV have a way of putting their guests at ease (even uber introverts like me). Here’s a peek behind the scenes on the set:
Writer Illustrator – Stan Yan, Interviewer Extraordinaire Doug “Groovey”, Camera God – Deno Apodaca

It’s coming! A few weeks left before the superheroes, artists, actors, authors and fans return to Denver. That’s right! It’s almost Denver ComicCon time!
I’ll be there leading a panel (Oh What a Tangled Web We Weave: Complex Plots In Fantasy, Mystery and Suspense Thrillers) and signing books. Look for me under the two HUGE LIONS!
So, what are you wearing to Denver ComicCon? I’ve had a sneak peek of a few costumes on FB. So creative! Me? I’m going as the Super Awesome Amazing Yet Boring Author Woman. In my defense, it’s been a crazy few weeks. I’ve been in Maryland working toward a certification in Program Management and eating an insane amount of seafood (at a crazy cheap price too). Now I’m back home in Colorado and ready to see the sights at Denver ComicCon!
Come on over to Author Alley. I’ll be in Booth PP15 on Friday, June 17th (1:45 am to 1:50 pm) doing book signings and interviews.
On Saturday, I’m participating in the “Self-Publishing: Is it For You?” 1:30 pm in Room 502/503
See you there!
