And so, the preparations have started for my third round of attending the Artist Alley at the Danish convention SVScon.
This year the convention will be 2.-4. May, providing another weekend of weird people in costumes and no sleep. I can barely wait!
You will be able to find me in Artist Alley both Friday and Saturday, but unfortunately I won’t have any exciting new book this year. But if you still haven’t gotten a copy of Resounding Echo or Silent Sound, I’ll have made sure to stock up on both, so come around! And if you already got your books, stop by anyway for a chat(I get awfully lonely if no one comes to visit me…).
Some of you might remember that I promised to dress up as a skimpy dragon for Genki, and I know I totally let you down on that one. Fortunately for you, I have had the cosplayer Skymone breathing down my neck to get me to finish the costume and this time it looks like it actually might happen! *Knock on wood*
If any of you play the MMORPG World of Warcraft, you might know the character I will be portraying. If all goes well, I will be dressing up as the dragon Alexstrasza and Skymone will be joining me as her sister Ysera. Of course, in proper online game manner, armor really doesn’t have to cover much on females. Funnily enough, it seems that the less it covers, the better protected you are!
If you don’t believe me, take a look at Alexstrasza’s game model.
So, yeah… I’m going to freeze my ass off.

So… I haven’t really been to a convention in a while, have I? I mean, it’s been two months since the last one!
It feels like I just got home from Genki, but now I find myself packing up books to go to Koyocon. Luckily it’s only an hour drive this time!
Koyocon is a small Danish convention which will be held for the first time this year. I’m not sure how much there will be to see since it’s just starting out, but as it’s close to home I’ll take my chances. Not to mention, I know quite a few people behind the project, so I thought I would be supportive!
The convention runs from 8.-10. November and I will have a table all Saturday in the Artist Alley. As per usual, I will be selling books and posters, so you have the chance to bring home a shiny copy of Resounding Echo or Silent Sound.
Oh well… I got packing to do!
Watch out people, I’m going in!
I’ll be leaving for Genki later today and I’m already quite sure that I’ll be forgetting something. Oh well, it’s not like the convention is on the other side of the country or something…
…Wait. It is! Let’s see, tickets, books, bullwhip… *Continues rummaging through her bags*
Anyway… As I wrote in my earlier post, you will be able to find me in Artist Alley most of the weekend. I’ll be selling paperbacks and posters, and I’ll love to chat with people if they come by! A lot of people came to talk to me during SVScon and I really enjoyed it. And only like half of them talked to me only because I had a spare chair at my table. Whee!
Unfortunately, I didn’t get to finish my costume, so I’ll stick out like a sore thumb in my regular clothes. Maybe I’ll put on a Halloween mask and scare children…
Are you going to Genki? Then remember to throw me a message or send me pictures afterwards if you talk to me at some point!
It’s time for another convention (didn’t I just get home from the last one…?)!
After two successful years at the Danish J-Pop convention SVScon, I have now graduated to the bigger Genki, which will be held from 30. August – 1. Septemper this year. It’s on the other side of the country, but that really doesn’t say much when you’re in Denmark, and it has twice the audience of SVScon. I’m so psyched about it!
As with SVScon, I will be found in the convention’s Artist Alley area(Table F. Isn’t it cool that it’s big enough to have lettered stands?). If you come see me, you will not only be able to get a signed copy of Resounding Echo or Silent Sound, you might also get to see me in the ridiculously revealing costume a friend of mine convinced me to make for this convention.
It’s a J-Pop convention. When in Rome, do as the Romans… (I’m probably going to regret this)
But enough about that. Don’t worry, there will be pictures once it’s done.
As usual, you will be able to buy both paperbacks and posters at my stand, but come around if you just want a chat as well! Or, you know, if you want to see me dressed as a skimpy dragon…
As I didn’t want to fill everything into one blog post, I decided to post pictures from this year’s SVScon here! I attended as an author, selling and promoting my Angel’s Voice series. You can read about my weekend here!
If you were at SVScon and have any great pictures you would like to share, post a link in the comments and I will upload them! I would especially love pictures of you if you came to talk me in Artist Alley or if you have a great one of your costume!
The lovely Skymone in her Night Elf costume from the game World of Warcraft!
Check her out on her Facebook-site!
More pictures will follow when I get sorted through them all!
Unfortunately, I got no good pictures of people in costumes, so I would really love it if you would send me some!
