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….

Book Awards Part 2

Earlier this year, I entered GESSO SQUAD The Graphic Novel Volume One into the Reader’s Favorite Book Awards. I recently recieved an email from them saying I was a finalist. I get the results in September….Meanwhile, I’ve entered GESSO SQUAD The Graphic Novel Volume One: 1,000 Star Demons and a Rain God into the Pura Belpre Book 2013 Awards. The Belpre Awards are associated with the American Library Association and are for Latino/Latina American Authors and Illustrators.
