A few weekends ago, on October 8th, I was at a book signing. My lovely wife was with me, we both went as characters from the Dark Seas Series. She as Fleet Captain Sarah Dayson, myself as Commander Franklin Gilbert. It was a lot of fun, but the costumes were HOT. So they were temporary, sadly.
I met a lot of great people, and discussed the series with a few fans. I had a few people pick up my thriller, Serum, as well.
I learned a few things. The first is that costumes are hot. I learned that I need a better backdrop for these events. And I clearly need to drop some pounds if I’m going to pretend to be in a space navy.
This was a lot of fun. In time, as the series advances, we’ll make more costumes based on characters, some you’ve seen, some you haven’t yet.
See those combat boots I’m wearing? Size 14. Do you know how hard it is to find size 14 combat boots? It turns out not at all. I searched Amazon, and there they were. Normally it’s pretty ridiculous the searching for shoes I do. But I found these easy. Which was awesome.
