We kicked it off at DanCon 2012 on March 4th. This year was bigger and better than last year, which was hard to top. We premiered House of the Wolfman, the second book in the Tales of the Wolfman series, with a standard cover and an exclusive sketch cover. The book sold well along with the first book, Bride of the Wolfman. People really enjoyed Rene’s original sketch covers.
Last Sunday, Rene and I were panelists for the Author Afternoon at the Beverly Arts Center. We were joined by Jim and Pat McGreal, creators of the Future Shock comic strip, and Jim Nelson, writer and artist of Crosstown Crush. We each gave presentations about writing, drawing and working in comics. The crowd, one of the biggest for Author Afternoons, was very receptive and participated in the Q&A. Afterward, many came up and spoke to us, looked at our work and even bought some books.
Coming up (April 13th – 15th) is C2E2. (www.c2e2.com)
