Our Interview with the Associated Press

When you are in the midst of the intense and crazed days of a Kickstarter, where your wrists and fingers hurt from all of the computer time spent emailing and well, begging, for some attention, you dream of being a Staff Pick. And you dream that the Associated Press will notice you and interview you. Right? These things did not happen simultaneously but THEY HAPPENED. A few months after our Kickstarter successfully funded, we were getting ready for New York Comic Con. We have our Con*Quest Adventure Journals to take for the first time, so awesome new accessories that our manufacturer pulled off at the last minute and a LOT OF Kickstarter backers who were picking up their journals at the show.

Out of the blue, Joseph Pisani, Big Story business reporter, contacted me to talk about being chosen as a Kickstarter Staff Pick. Then there was this whole thing where a photographer came to our booth at New York Comic Con and took some pictures on the one day I was manning the booth solo. And today the story came out! So here it is, in all it's fantastic glory.

New York Comic Con is ON Baby!

Here we go!

We leave tomorrow for New York Comic Con and will be setting up and getting ready to meet all of our Kickstarter backers and our preorder customers plus all of the awesome new people we hope will come by booth 2770 to check out our stuff! We have a new booth display that we are SO excited about, so even though we are in the far back, you will hopefully recognize us when you get there!


Don't forget to come by early to get our NYCC 2014 Show Exclusive Pin!

They  are $5 when you buy a journal, $7 on their own. We only have 200 of them, so they will go fast! You can pin them to the binding on your journal or tote bag to signify that all of your NYCC goodness is inside your journal.

The Con*Quest Adventure Journal™ is the perfect place to store all of your artwork, photo-ops and autographs.

I have signed up to get my picture with Stephen Amell aka Arrow, so I'm pretty excited to add him to my journal!

We are so excited to test new merchandise exclusively at New York Comic Con.

With our manufacturing partner, we have developed three new products that we think you will love and that will add a really special vibe to the whole show: Con*Pliment Cards™, Con*Panion Note Cards™ and Con*Panion Mini Journals! I think we are most excited about the Con*Pliment Cards, which are business sized cards with con specific compliments that you can pass out to awesome people you meet. There's a line on the back to include your contact info, but you don't have to do that. You can just give fellow attendees a Con*Pliment just to spread kindness and fun. We're only bringing about 25 sets of each, so if you want to get some of our newest stuff, get to our booth 2770 early! Watch our Twitter and Facebook, I'll reveal the new stuff online as soon as we have it in our hands.

We can't wait to see you all at NYCC!

NYCC 2014 Exhibitor Exclusive Box Opening!

Successful Kickstarter, Show Schedule and Pre-Orders

Thank you!

Successful Kickstarter

First we just want to say THANK YOU to all of the amazing backers of our successful Kickstarter campaign! We are so very grateful for all of the support, sharing, and general awesome response that we received. What a wild ride it was! There were so many lessons that we learned through the process: how effective videos can be, how we need to continue reaching out to people and networking, how important it is to keep getting the journal in reviewers' hands and how effective con email blasts are at marketing the journal. But most of all we learned that people love the journal and that has made us more excited than ever to continue building this business and adding new accessories and versions to grow it further. Keep watching the site as we add those accessories and more on our Get It page.
