I had a great time at Contagion Outbreak. I got to see Escape Velocity in print. This website was also displayed next to my name. So hello to any newcomers. I’m very happy you came out to this neck of the web!
My wife and I witnessed a unique kung-fu demonstration, saw all manner of cos-players, and attended a few panels too. One panel was hosted by some comic book arists who talked about the ins and outs of the comic book business. Comic books also face the same upheaval of the digital revolution. Greg Hall also had an informative panel regarding submissions of stories for writers. We had to duck out early, but what we saw was most informative. All in all, twas a pretty fun time!
I received a rejection from Angry Robot, but it had some useful feedback concerning adding a little more context in the early parts of my Repenter manuscript. I’ll be taking a closer look at the “who’s” and “where’s” in the earlier chapters to improve the story. I’ll be submitting it out to literary agents and cautiously exploring electronic publication in the future. More to come!
