Finally, I've managed to find the time to make a stat in catching up with the mountain of work I've found myself drowning in in the wake of two conventions, work at my part-time job, a halloween party and also the very sad passing of my oldest pet rat, Kaylee.
Needless to say, I've been, and will continue to be incredibly busy!
But anyway, lets take a trip back a couple of weeks to the 17th and 18th of October and The Lakes Comic Arts Festival in Kendal! (Wait, what? It's November now!? When did that happen..?)
This is the second year that Matt and I have visited this fantastic convention, however this time we were accompanied by Ben Read and Chris Wildgoose, as indeed, MULP is now officially part of the Improper Books collective!
Kendal saw the launch of Improper Books' latest title, Briar by Ben and Chris. You would have found those cheeky chappies on the top floor of the Clock Tower saturday for a signing session courtesy of Page 45
Once again we had a lovely time, the staff were on hand to answer questions and provide cups to tea and bananas to which we owe a huge thank you. and thanks also to everyone who stopped by to chat and buy our books!
If LICAF isn't on your circuit of yearly conventions I would highly recommend it, here to give you a proper feel for the convention as a whole are a links to a few round ups featuring some great photos of the exhibitors and the general atmosphere which is embraced by everyone in this small town… oh and we're all mentioned in these too!
