Apparently I’m getting a table at Cyphacon again this year.
I almost don’t want to go because of some of the con-organizer’s attitudes last year. But anyway. This year may be different, and I won’t know unless I give it a chance.
This will be our second and last year at Cyphacon. In a few months my husband has to make a decision: either we stay in the military or we go home. Either way we’ll be leaving Louisiana. Which is fine by me. I’m rather looking forward to going home and getting to work on fixing up my house that has been waiting faithfully for the past 2 years. Or maybe going to Alaska! Both are nice options.
What I have at Cyphacon will depend largely on what I can afford. I’m also having to figure out how I’m going to pay for my daughter’s graduation, get teeth fixed, etc. Ha ha ha, Heavenly bride needs donations so I can afford to make a living! Pathetic isn’t it. 🙂
I know I won’t be doing the usual set up. I’m going to put old stock in a big box and say “grab anything for $1” just to get rid of it. My art prints are a sort of a thing of the past. I say sort of because I decided art print magnets were more functional and easier to keep. They look professional, too. But I made them all myself!
I’m also making Magic the Gathering art magnets from old cards, usually commons. Cards worth more than a penny look at me with big wibbly eyes, and then I don’t have the heart to cut them up.
And of course I’ll be doing the donate-for-a-bookmark program. I’ll probably stick the old stock in that program or something, to consolidate.
I’d like to have some ashcans of 10 Confessions chapter 1, if I can afford to have them made. And a couple of issues of Heavenly Bride Book 1… although with that one I’ll have to be careful with who gets to see it. Family-friendly con and all that.
My husband plans to have some things on the table. He’d like to make boffer weapons for money someday. There’s no better time like the present to start.
This may also be my last convention for a long long long time. The cons around my house in Illinois aren’t the right venue for what I do. I have to travel up to 12 hours to get to a good con from home base. But, one thing at a time.
If you’re curious about last year’s Cyphacon, you can check out my webcam on the spot here: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=5GdfhBdMiXI
I might be doing that again this year, as well – which means I should be treated like royalty! Being as I do a review of the thing and all… mwahahahahahahaaaaaa… HAHAHAHAHAHAHAAHAHAHAHAHAHaaaaaaa
Hope to see you at Cyphacon. 🙂
