Sci-Fi Expo

I'm happy to report that last weekend's Sci-Fi Expo at the Toronto Metro Convention Centre was a smashing success for me, my wife Violet, and my books. In total I sold twenty (!) copies of Epoch, nine copies of Attack of the Intergalactic Soul Hunters, and six copies of Section K. All in all, a most rewarding (and profitable!) weekend.

Money aside, I was just happy to get the word out about myself and my work. That's what you've got to do in this biz! I'm feeling so good about it, I might just sign myself up for Con*Cept in Montreal this October!

Here are some pictures from the event:


That's me at my table, doing my author thing.













This is my reaction to a truly horrible cup of convention tea. Ugh!








This is me wearing a 'Jayne' hat. All you Browncoats out there know what I'm talking about. For the rest, it was the hat sent to Jayne from his mother on the fantastic series, Firefly. Someone was knitting those hats and selling them, so Violet picked one up. Don't I look grand?










This is my lovely and adorable wife, Violet, wearing the Jayne hat. Isn't she cute?








Violet and I, at the table, selling lots of books.









More pictures to come.

Hi Tim! Thanks for stepping by, I'm glad you did! I spent the last three weeks saying to myself, "let's take a look at what's doing good old Timothy", but then I always had some annoying thing to do next and forgot. Sorry!
Anyway looking at those pics you are doing great, I love the one with you with the cup of coffe, so funny! And Violet is simply adorable!

I bet you had fun at the convention (besides coffee) ;-))

Very cool! Congratulations!

I tried to reach you by email, but it came back to me. If you would like me to review EPOCH at The Book Connection, please email me at cg20pm00@gmail.com

I look forward to hearing from you.

That's terrific! Just having books to sell is terrific, much less actually selling them! You're an inspiration to us all:)

I like your hat, but it might look better on your wife. :)

Howdy Timothy,

I met you on two separate occasion at last weekends FAN-EXPO (You wrote Repeat Customer: THANK YOU! THANK YOU! THANK YOU! in my copy of Soul Hunters). I'm about to open a movie/book review website entitled TECHNICOLOR DOOM and I was wondering if you'd be interested in an interview? Contact me at jdecloux@gmail.com if you get the chance.

Keep up the good work!
