The kickoff to my book tour at Anime Boston was loads of fun and a smashing success! I broke a sales record, selling over 100 books for the first time in a single weekend. The new prints went over very well, too.
This year I was accompanied by my friend Ellen, who helped out at the table and was an excellent assistant. In another first, she also cosplayed as Kate on Saturday! She even attempted the crazy bangs for that totally 80′s styling:
Awesome! Thank you so much again, Ellen! You were a great help, and your costumes were wonderful!
I also had a fantastic time hanging out with Brion Foulke & Jen Brazas, Shannon & Rich Townsend and Dave Lister while they crashed at my place. And on Saturday night we got together with fellow comickers Zack Giallongo, Steph Yue, Shelli Paroline, Braden Lamb, Stevie Wilson, Beatriz Bravo, and Pat Lapierre for dinner where we recreated The Last Supper:
All in all this weekend was a tremendous start to this month of conventions. I’m really looking forward to the rest of them.
