The folks at MegaCon 2014 have assigned us the spot for the Disenchanted & Co. booth, which will be #81. It's the first booth you'll see as you enter through what I believe is the south Main Entrance, but here's the booth marked on the floorplan map so you can find it:
The booth will feature my signed books, jewelry, artworks, my 1K cards project on display, and other fun items related to my work for purchase, as well as some giveaway and reader events on each day of the con (these are still in the planning stages, but I'll have more details as the date draws closer and we finalize things.) Alaires (aka my kid), my cover artist for My Lord Mayhem, Forget-Me-Knot and the steampunk chibis I've been giving away here and on the writing blog, will also be exhibiting her own art with original works and prints available for purchase. She's also planning to do some live drawings on commission at the con, and since her work is terrific and her rates are quite reasonable I think she'll be in high demand.
Sales for Her Ladyship have been good, and I appreciate everyone who has taken the time to help me spread the word. That said, sales could be better, and at this point the numbers will decide whether or not the Disenchanted & Co. series continues. I've done what I can, and so have the wonderful folks at PocketStar, so now the fate of the series is really in your hands. If you enjoy the books and would like me to keep writing Kit's adventures, please let other readers know about the series. You may think that one person can't make a difference, but you can, as honest reader-to-reader recommendations are still the best advertising in the world.
An update on the hidden embroidery I found inside two quilted pillowcovers I bought last Spring: I successfully (and carefully) recovered both panels, which I'm now making into totes. Here's the first panel, which I framed in velvet-flocked faux chocolate leather:
After I embellish the tote (still working out how I want to do that) I'll post another pic so you can see the finished project.
Finally, about the holiday collaborative project I mentioned at the beginning of September -- I sorted through everything I have for the e-book, and it's already a huge pile of stuff, so size is going to be an issue. Also, time is also becoming a factor; we're already into October and I don't want to distract anyone planning to participate in NaNoWriMo. What I've decided to do this year is just put together what content I have and release it for free as my holiday gift to you. If all goes well with the series, maybe next year we can get together a little earlier and do a group book.
That's all the news for now, but if you have any questions you'd like me to answer, please post them in comments.
