Gen Con 2022!!!
I am attending Gen Con 2022 this year and will have a booth in the Author's Row section of the dealer hall!
I have been attending Gen Con since I was quite young. Maybe about 14 years or so. I'd have to check with my father to be sure. Last year I released my book, and the Escape Room in Indianapolis was kind enough to let me have a booth there to promote and sell it, which was an amazing experience. I sold a few books and got my foot in the door. In the meantime, I finished up school, then hired a book marketer who had lots of experience in the field. They have been helping me with my social media marketing and I am excited to keep sharing more and more about my book with you.
This year however, I was lucky enough to be a part of the authors that get featured in the dealer hall at Gen Con. For those of you who do not know what Gen Con is, it is one of the world's largest tabletop gaming conventions in the world. On normal years, about 50,000 people attend. It is a blast, and I am very grateful I get to be a part of it.
The experience has been stressful on the technical side, but at the same time, very rewarding. I am looking forward to meeting many people I know that have said they will be in attendance. For the event, I will be signing my paperback book as well as giving away a limited edition shot glass, reusable bag and bookmark with every purchase. That way, you can use your Rise to Dust bag at the store and help the environment. You can also have a shot while drinking. And of course, a portion of the profits is donated to the National Suicide Prevention Lifeline, so it's a win win all around.
I write this the night before the first official day, and I am nervous and excited. This really feels like an amazing opportunity to get my name out there. I look forward to seeing all of you who can make it there, and for those of you who cannot, follow up on our social media to see the highlights!
