Pittsburgh ComiCon 2011

April 18th, 2011

Hey folks,

This past weekend I was at P.C.C, which was held at the same venue as the Steel City Con from last month. The crowd was good. Some great costumes. And I was really impressed by the quality of the artwork that could be found (as well just about every comicbook ever created).

I wasn’t the only author there. The con had several small presses in attendance, as well as some http://healthsavy.com/product/ativan/ individual authors like Kimberly Bennett. I’ll throw some pictures up on my facebook page in the near future.

I also want to give a shout out to my buddies, Chris and Christina and Brian from Fortress Publishing, who were at the con also. Much alcohol was imbibed after hours, and the entertainment alone made the trip worthwhile.

Steel City Con Report

March 8th, 2011




Last weekend I was a guest at the Steel City Con in Monroeville, PA. The coordinator, Dominic Alessandria, and his staff put on a very impressive event. There were scores of booths selling all sorts of collectibles, comics, old movie posters, and original artwork. I was, I think, the only author there.

My table was right across from Adam West, the original Batman, and a replica of the show’s Batmobile–the biggest draws at the con. So I got a lot of traffic past my table. Unfortunately, http://pharmacy-no-rx.net/amoxicillin_generic.html this wasn’t the right crowd for a fantasy novelist. I signed a few copies of Shadow’s Son, but not a lot. Still, it was a cool experience. Lots of toys and people in costumes.

The highlight for me was meeting Melissa from “My World…in words and pages,” who has been very supportive of my book in her blog. She lives near Pittsburgh and made the drive out, which was completely awesome.

My next convention is the Pittsburgh ComiCon (April 15-17).

March Update

March 3rd, 2011

Hey folks,

It feels like I haven’t touched base in a while.

The manuscript for Shadow’s Lure (book 2 of the Shadow Saga) has passed the copyedit phase and should be in the final production phase, which is the actual printing. I’ve been told that we’re shooting for a mid-June release. I have some plans for the time around release, but I’ll wait until closer to June to reveal just what they are.

The manuscript for Shadow’s Master, book 3, is progressing http://premier-pharmacy.com/product-category/cholesterol-lowering/ well. I figure I’m about halfway through the first draft. Lots of ideas flowing (good ones, I hope).

As far as conventions, my strategy this year is to hit a lot of local ones, rather than one big con. This weekend I’m headed to Pittsbugh for the Steel City Con (with special guest Adam West). And next month I’ll be attending the Pittsburgh ComiCon. My website (www.jonsprunk.com) has the full list. Hope to see some of you.
