I had another successful weekend at RI Comic Con a few weeks ago. It doesn’t seem to be a huge market for prose, but books did sell, and as always, I met a lot of really great people. I am looking forward to next year.
Also, I’ve officially started my Kickstarter for the next book! I know I tried that IndieGoGo back in the summer, but it didn’t work, because I think I was asking for too much at once. This is a more solvent project, just for the book, to get me through the initial production costs while I’m still a poor student. I’m shooting for an August release. Just in time for Pennsic War!
Aside from making everyone who actually comes to this page think I do nothing but fundraising, I DO have a Facebook page that I tend to update a great deal more often. You can find me at www.facebook.com/angela.l.costello. Hopefully once the year winds down, I can make this blog a bit more active, compared to my Roman re-creation blog over at annasrome.com.
I hope everyone has a great holiday season!
I keep forgetting to check in here so often. BAD AUTHOR!
Anyways, the IndieGogo was a complete flop for me. It appears that these days you can only make money from it if you’re a scantily-clad cosplay girl. Oh well, more power to them.
In other news, Rhode Island Comic Con is this weekend! Come see me in Artist Alley and please do stop into my Historical Costuming panel on Saturday morning!
In other other news, “The Overcast of Autumn” ran into all kinds of awesome delays that is typical of producing a second novel, from writer’s block to publishing issues, to cover design. Therefore, it will not be out this fall as originally planned, so we are shooting for a release as soon as possible. I’m really sorry about this.
I hope to see everyone at the Convention this weekend!
I have some really great perks up for this campaign, so I hope that everyone pitches in and/or shares the link! This doesn’t just support the sequel, it is going to support my entire studio that needs some serious upgrades. Please read my blurb and tell me what you think!
Look for information on how YOU can pitch in to bring “The Overcast of Autumn” to print next Fall, coming soon!
I’m had to take a hiatus from working on the sequel to further my academic mind this semester. However, never fear! It is coming, I promise.
I also have a newish blog I’ve been working on for my participation in the SCA. You can find it just a hop away at annasrome.blog.com.
Starting tomorrow through Sunday, it’s the last chance to get the book free on Kindle. After that, I will open the publishing rights to multiple formats including Nook, Sony, Smashwords, etc. So if you didn’t get it on Kindle before, now you can!
The sequel, “The Overcast of Autumn” is underway, coinciding with my history thesis, so it will be a busy next few months as I finish my second, and hopefully, final undergraduate degree, so I can move into my master’s program next year.
I am also in the process of building a new blog to focus on my SCA (Society for Creative Anachronism) research, so those more into the recreational aspect of the Middle Ages can certain stop over there when it’s complete.
Copies of “Of Summer and Winter” will be available at Market Day at Birka in Manchester, NH, and Templecon in Warwick, RI.
