    This Past Weekend

    This past weekend I moderated a panel at SPLAT about self publishing. It was my first time moderating so I was a wee bit nervous — that and the fact that the entry fee was $125. With that kind of price tag I wanted to make sure the audience really got their money’s worth. There were a lot of variables to hurdle:
    1) The audience was more trade and industry focused than your average eager self-publisher
    2) The topic was more about breaking into the book industry, which isn’t my specialty
    3) I hadn’t met most of my panelists

    But, I think overall I think the panel went really well. The panelists were lively and a lot of great advice. There was a lot of nuts and bolts information that didn’t necessarily fit the rest of the show, but was apropos for this particular panel. There was a good Q and A at the end and I thank everyone who contributed and participated.

    I was also able to catch a few other panels while I was there — the tail end of the kids comic panel, the webcomics panel and the Scott McCloud Q and A. McCloud is guaranteed entertainment in any public arena and the webcomics forum was pretty entertaining once they got the discussion going. That Ted Rall…He’s got a future, I tell ya.

    Then something odd happened to me at the end….which may or may not come to fruition…
