Well, this week came up a lot faster than I had anticipated. We were off on our first road trip with Nugget for the last 10 days, visiting family in Michigan and Milwaukee. We had a great time, but now we’re back in the swing of normal life
Awesome Con begins on Friday, and I still have some logistics to work out. The countdown begins!
I’m still waiting on my books to arrive. I should have ordered them weeks ago, but with a tight budget, I held out in hopes of a new paycheck.
I finally ordered my books last Thursday, assuming that was plenty of time to receive them. According to Amazon, they haven’t even printed yet… I upgraded my shipping to hopefully receive them by this Thursday. Fingers crossed.
I have my bookmarks though, so that’s cool. With my aforementioned tight budget, I decided not to order a banner or paper flyers. Instead, I added some text to the reverse side of my bookmarks, serving effectively the same purpose my flyers would have. I’ll post pics this week once I have everything.
Ugh. I loathe to think about driving into and parking in DC. I think I’ll be using Spot Hero to reserve parking for each day, so that should take away some of the hassle.
Am I missing anything?
Because I feel like I am. I’ll meet up with fellow author and table-sharer, MLS Weech sometime this week to make sure I get my badge. (He has to pick them up.) But I think that’s all I need.
Aside from getting down to DC each morning and trying to sell books for 7-9 hours per day, of course. I will be drinking a lot of coffee.
More to come this week!
Anyone out there have convention advice for a newbie?
