Tercona News #20

My last comic con in 2022 was The Cincinnati Comic Expo this past weekend!

I went to this comic con in 2021 and it was fantastic. I couldn’t wait to go back and it did NOT disappoint!

The crowd was so busy on Saturday that I hardly got a chance to talk to anyone because they just kept walking by. It was kind of like the “herd” mentality.

Even though I did sell a lot of comics I didn’t make a profit because my hotel cost was high. I assume the more books I have on my table the more people will have to choose from and the better chances I’ll have at making MORE money by selling more books.

Nonetheless, this is one my my favorite comic cons of the year because I always do well. I can’t wait to go back next year to The Cincinnati Comic Expo.

2022 Monroe Pop Fest – Review

This past weekend I went to The Monroe Pop Fest in Monroe, MI. I hadn’t been to this con since 2019!

I’ve been going to The Monroe Pop Fest since 2016. Back then it was called The Monore Comic Con. In those years this con has always brought in lots of people. Lots of foot traffic.

On another note, since 2017 I’ve always wanted to go to the Cincinnati Comic Expo. The bad thing was, every year both of these cons were on the same weekend.

In 2020 I bought an Artist Alley table for The Moroe Pop Fest AND the Cincinnati Comic Expo because this was the first year they were not on the same weekend. Sadly, we all know how 2020 went.

In 2021, both cons were on the same weekend – again. So I decided to go to the Cincinnati Comic Expo this time. My AA table for the 2022 Monroe Pop Fest was my rollover from 2020.

Now that you know a little backstory, here’s what I think is the 2022 Monroe Pop Fest. It was…OK. First off, they added a “preview” day on Friday from 5-9. I didn’t want to go because this con is about a 1 hour and 45-minute drive from my house and this meant I would have to drive up there….twice! But I went. I thought the Friday hours were unnecessary. Every 3-day con that I went to had there Friday hours usually from 3-9 or 2-8. In any case, Friday is usually 6 hours. For Monroe, it was only 4.

I also believe the attendance was down a little too. There was still lots of foot traffic and people were happy to be there but It just seemed a little slower than in 2016, 2017, 2018 and 2019.

Finally, I only sold 1 comic too.

I want to make this very clear. Gary puts on a great show. I still love The Monroe Pop Fest and I will return to this show again in the future it’s just that…I think I’ll skip next year and try again in 2024.

Again, it’s a great show. I like it but I felt the attendance was down from previous years. It’s also possible that the people that were there just weren’t buying. lol

** WARNING **

This post has NOTHING to do with Tercona!

The Kickstarter for my NEW romance novel called The Taming Of April is now in the pre-launch phase! (click the picture!)

Adam King must pick up the pieces from a hard breakup. He’s overweight, working as a farm hand and he knows his life doesn’t have a destination. As he slowly makes some changes to better his career goals and move forward with his dating life, he gets a haircut and encounters a hairdresser named April Bender.

Adam slowly finds out that April has a bit of a wild streak. She enters wet t-shirt contests, loves to skinny dip, and has sex with men on the first date.

Shocked and yet also thrilled by April’s erotic zest for life Adam realizes she doesn’t need a boyfriend; she needs a true friend. April is tormented by the demons of her past. Bad breakups, being raised by a single biker mom who loves to party, and having too many sexual partners before the age of 25. She has a very tough time letting go of her carefree promiscuous lifestyle. When her sexual outlook on life finally catches up with her, she realizes she must also make changes to better herself but is it too late? April fears she might lose the only man that has ever truly treated her with respect and dignity.

Entertaining, funny, and deeply moving, with just a pinch of sensual erotic fun The Taming of April is a romantic comedy story of how a man who was once a cowboy uses his skills to tame a wild woman.

The Taming Of April is a romance novel. If it was a movie it would be a rated R romantic comedy. Not Young Adult (not for kids) but it’s also not a spicy sexy romance novel either.

There will be a special variant cover that is ONLY available on Kickstarter. This special cover will have pictures inside the book.

The Kickstarter campaign launches on September 5th. I’m hoping to get 100 followers before then. 

PLEASE follow my Kickstarter for The Taming Of April by clicking on the picture above!
