    I'll be there. It's all of 10 minutes up the road from me, so I don't have any excuses.

    We're working on promoting it big time, that's for sure! I'm looking into promoting through local new papers, comic book shops & upcoming conventions and with four months to go I already have four guests and about a 1/3 of the tables sold. So I'm hoping to make it big and if it does really well, next year I want to make it a two day event with voice talents from California.

    And if you do want to buy tables you can at:

    And Tinkerbee, give Maria a hug for me :)
