I'm making arrangements right now to attend Clermont Comic Con on Sunday November 19 2017 as an Author.
More local communities are hosting their own scifi/fantasy/comics conventions, noting the modern appeal of cool geek. You don't have to go to a major Con in a large city anymore. Well, actually, you kinda want to because you get to see more A-List celebs and artists, but hey, any chance to hang out in public dressed as Batgirl is a good plan.
Don't forget I have a trip to Albany GA this month, for the Epi-Con on Saturday August 19th! Hope to see you there!
