Memories of Clermont Comic Con 2018

I went again this year, with hope that I have more titles of interest and able to get more customers. I did speak with a wonderful lady who loves reading, and was happy to get a copy of Strangely Funny and History and Mystery. I had more people ask about NaNoWriMo - I had a sign up promoting it - and a good number of people eager to get bookmarks for free.

Clermont is not a large-scale con like MegaCon or TampaBayCon, but it's pretty active for a city-run event. I'm hoping more people keep showing up for this.

Also, I asked for some help this year watching the table, so my nephew Drew volunteered to backup and help with sales and convention seeing.

Here's Drew as we get the table finished. Good lord, he's grown up since his
last comiccon (seen here at the Tampa Bay one in 2015)

Here's fellow author and convention vendor Bill Hatfield! He's sitting across
the aisle from me.

Here comes the first cosplayers of the day! Steam Punks!

R2! You see him rolling, they faintin...

One other thing that happened this trip: I got my brother Phil to see just how hilly Clermont is. A long-time cross country runner, even HE is impressed by the terrain.

Good luck, NaNo writers!
