Book Awards Part 3

GESSO SQUAD: 1,000 Star Demons and a Rain God was in the 2012 Reader’s Favorite Book Awards. Click here to see the results.This morning I just finished the sixth graphic novel. Sometime at the end of the month it should be up on Amazon.com.

NYC ComicCon

Next year I will have enough saved up to get my own table at NYC ComicCon 2013. The cost of a small booth is $948 for the four day convention. Not sure yet if I’ll commute or get a hotel room…attending ComicCon 2012 isn’t an option right now for me financially, so we’ll wait till next year….

Last week, I entered my first graphic novel into The American Library Association’s Robert Sibert Informational Book Awards. The NAACP has a multicultural awards show every year honoring people in television, film and literature.

Earlier this week, I attended my first Toastmaster’s International Meeting. They are a club who helps their members develop professional public speaking skills. Membership is affordable at $72 a year.  Participating in Toastmasters will help with my desire to speak at local schools about helmet safety…. We’ll see….exciting things are happening….
