Next up on our calendar is MarsCon. This is a very nice convention held over MLK weekend every January in Williamsburg, Virginia. We've been selling books there for around 10 years or so, and really enjoy this con.
We have a whole selection of books that we offer at cons that are not a part of what we sell online, although there is naturally some overlap. Since these are science fiction conventions, our focus is science fiction, fantasy, steampunk, and young adult. Once the con is over, we try to list some of the Guest of Honor's books, many of which we are able to have the author sign at the convention.
MarsCon this year will feature two literary Guests of Honor, Scott Lynch and David Weber, as well as Leslye Penelope, the young adult GoH.
This will be our first chance to meet Scott Lynch and Leslye Penelope. We look forward to that opportunity.
David Weber lives in South Carolina. We have had the pleasure of meeting him a number of times at various conventions, along with The Royal Manticoran Navy, his fan organization and a presence at many cons.
We've been busy preparing for this convention and look forward to being there and visiting with many of our customers and acquaintances. As a tax preparer, I am also getting ready for the upcoming tax season where I will have virtually no life outside of taxes. An enjoyable time, nonetheless.
