CONduit Update

Countdown to rewrite: 22 days

CONduit is just around the corner. If you live in the Salt Lake area, and like SciFi or Fantasy, (which, if you follow me, I assume you do...) you should consider going to this con. It's the first time for me, so I can't speak from personal experience, but close friends have told me it's been really fun in years past. It's relatively cheap for a three-day pass, and you can come visit me in the dealer's room if you have some free time between other cool stuffs. :) 

Looks like the consensus on my poll is for me to promote my book there... which I'll gladly do. Although, because I'm scrapping the draft I have and will be rewriting it in a few weeks, I won't have too much actual writing to show for it. My biggest concern, then, is going to be art prints. I have a few sweet pieces I've made specifically for the occasion. Even if I don't sell very many, I'll call it a success. Why? Because the main focus of the table isn't actually going to be me. It's mostly about Jaron's card game, Villages.

The Game Crafter has agreed to sponsor our (meaning Jaron's, Nikki's, and my) table at CONduit--since the main focus will be to promote Villages, we're also taking on the task of promoting the site that has made Villages possible. We got all of the parts they sent us in the mail the other day, and it's gotten me really excited. There's a table skirt, some posters, t-shirts, game pieces... so much cool stuff.

We'll have some sweet giveaways, too, so even if you're busy, stop by the table to get an entry into the drawing. We'll have some gift certificates, button pins, and some other epic, awesome prizes to win, so come visit us. CONduit runs from May 25-27, so be sure to mark it on your calendar now! :) I look forward to seeing you there!

(This is... all assuming that the volunteers at CONduit ever get back to us... we paid for a table and everything like a month ago, but they haven't said anything to confirm that we have our spot. It's pretty frustrating and a little worrisome, though I recognize that they're busy and working on it.)
