This couple were our neighbors and very friendly and very busy for most of the day.
We didn’t make a lot of money but we had a great time meeting people and other vendors. What we did learn was, most people who go to Comic Con want to buy books or comics of pre-established companies, such as, Marvel and DC. They want to be able to dress up like the characters they read about. Finally, we should have dressed up like the characters.
A table for 2 is more expensive (it was $100 for Kitchener Comic Con this year) but I would recommend you get a table for 2. When it’s slow you have someone to talk to and you have someone to watch the table if you need to use the facilities or take a lunch break.

A pet peeve for a lot of us is when we see an interesting cover but it has nothing to do with the story inside.
I wanted covers that represented a scene in the book. But I’m not an artist. So what I would do is ask a friend, my goddaughter, my niece, or my goddaughter’s sister if I can take a picture of them. The picture would represent the image I wanted an artist (someone I know) to create.
For Sylvia, the second book in the Children of the Myth Machine series, I asked Sam Nichols, a budding personal trainer if I could take a picture of her with one hand on a tree trunk while she looked into the distance. Time didn’t allow us to meet up so Sam put her camera on Timer and took a picture while the wind blew her hair.
[The picture of Sam is her sole property and not for reprint in any form without her express permission.]
The agreement is Sam keeps the right to the original photo but I can us She was kind enough to let me use it so you can see the process.]e it for artwork. In the story Sylvia has birch tree pupils and rabbit ears. I drew a really rough sketch of what I wanted for my artistic friend Randy Bugdale.

Randy used pencil crown to create the image of Sylvia. He also designed the front cover for the few books I had printed to bring to Kitchener Comic Con. The next Blog will discuss getting a model.
