Here we are, our first video blog from the convention:
So, for anyone who is interested, we have some exciting news.
Jesse Young and myself are hopping on a plane at the end of August and heading to Las Vegas. That's right, we're attending Killercon!
(If anyone knows not what Killercon is all about, click here)
The purpose for this trip is threefold:
1) To promote The Fall (and in so doing, promote ourselves). We're bringing books and prints, and hopefully we can move some and get the brand out there.
2) Schmooze with other industry types. Attending this conference will be a good many individuals who are both established and up-and-coming in the genre; folks like John Skipp, Allen K, and Maurice Broaddus. To rub elbows with them, to sit down and have a conversation, is going to be quite informative and helpful.
3) Last and possibly most exciting of all, we get the opportunity to hang with my favorite editor and author in all the world, one Mercedes Yardley. Cookies. Yum.
I can't even tell you how stimulating this is. The decision to do this was kind of impromptu - it came about very quickly and without much second guessing. So here's hoping we receive as much out of the experience as I think we will. I'm sure it's gonna be fantastic.
Be back later with more updates.
