Chanerr Hou everyone! This last weekend was an absolute dream come true for me:
I WAS A VENDOR AT MOMO CON!!!!
I can't tell you what an honor it was to be on the other side of the table at this specific convention as an award-winning author. I practically grew up WITH Momo con, since I first attended when it STARTED at Georgia Tech (can you believe it used to be tiny and free??).
I'll be honest, I was terrified of even attempting to sell my books here. I had recurring nightmares of being hated by the community I grew up with, and thought my anime peers would absolutely hate my books (well, I guess that's nothing new since I think EVERYONE will hate my books. You'd think I'd learn by now that my brain is a filthy liar :p ). But WOW, I can't believe the outpouring of support and love from all of you!!! So many of you even started reading the series DURING the con and came by to get the rest--and I couldn't be more grateful to all of you!! This series means so much to me, and you all keep reminding me that all those years of grueling work (and maybe unhealthy obsession) were worth it.
For those who are new to this newsletter, WELCOME and WELL MET! It was fabulous meeting you at Momo Con!!
