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….
