Anatomy of an Oldham County Comic Con

This weekend marked the very first Oldham County Comic Con and as part of Hydra Publications, we bought two tables for the event. I was joined behind the tables by Stuart Thaman and Rachael Rawlings, two incredibly talented authors. Stuart offered up his fantasy novel, The Goblin Wars Part 1, his scifi/religious mashup, The Vatican Massacre, and his newest novel, For We Are Many, his first foray into the horror genre. Rachael brought her young adult paranormal romance, Dearly Departed, and her mystery novel, The Parrot Told Me. I sold quite a few copies of The Hand of God and The Watchers. Several people came to visit who already had book one.


Bethany Morse and all the wonderful volunteers at the Oldham County Library did a fantastic job running the convention. Quite frankly, there is not one thing I would recommend they change for the next year. Anytime you have a first year convention, you wonder about turnout. The estimated turnout for OC3 (as it is known) topped three thousand. From the opening moments, the building was packed. The food provided for the vendors was also better than most any other convention I’ve attended. Heck, most conventions you fend for yourself. I am already looking forward to next year.

And of course, there were cos players. Here are a few pictures.
