Solar Echoes and Conventions (part 1)
I received an email from a friend of mine, a science-fiction author, who is attended Gen Con this past weekend. She was telling me about the thrill of the convention, how huge it is, and how on her first day she sold far more books than she expected. Just hearing her excitement was contagious, and it made me dream a little about one day trying to take Solar Echoes to Gen Con. What would it take for a small, indie-publisher to capture the attention of gamers? I've taken Solar Echoes to three different cons this year, with great results, but each time I learn something new. You see, I'm not exactly a marketing expert—I'm much more a creator than a salesman. Still, considering the excited reception I've seen for Solar Echoes at these cons, I guess it's only natural to start looking at Gen Con!
