The Imperfect Blog

Bill Keith is right

Posted by EHancock2 on June 11, 2019 at 1:25 PM

I waited on this blog for many reasons. One, because there's just not much I can say publicly about what's going on behind the scenes. But, second, I wanted to get well into my touring season before I offered a true update. Well, I'm into my touring year, so I think now's as good a time as any to update.

At the end of May, we had Kilgore Geekend. It was originally scheduled for a couple weeks earlier, but weather did not permit the event, so rescheduling put the event the weekend before Longview Comic Con. First, two weekends in a row is a lot rougher on me these days than it was in 2011, when Patty Wiseman and I were running up and down the roads, telling the world about our books. Back then, it seemed easier. I would get tired, but I bounced back. These days, bouncing back doesn't happen like it once did. And two events in a row like that killed me, physically and mentally. I don't know why, but I was just beyond spent. I guess my friend and fellow author, Bill Keith, is right when he says, "Gettin' old ain't for sissies." Now, I'm not 85 years old. I'm a mere pup of 45, but you have to understand I also have spina bifida and I've broken my back twice in my 45 years of life. Tired has a deep meaning to me now, and I experienced the seventh level of Tired Hell. Sold a lot of books. Made some really cool contacts. I probably shouldn't announce it, but I'm in the process of setting up an event at Half Price Books in Tyler, Texas. They sought me out at Kilgore and suggested I come out for a signing! Can you believe that!? They sought ME out! Wow! Honestly, it's an honor for me to sign there. I haven't done book stores since Hastings closed down. The big boys that are left just haven't been too friendly to us indy guys. So, having Half Price Books be willing to play host to the author of the Mendez Series is MAJOR for me. Truthfully, a much-needed ego boost!

This coming weekend, I travel to Arlington, Texas for ArlingCon. I have to be honest and say that I'm very nervous about this one. Not because of the fact it's a new event for me or anythign like that. Not because of the travel per se. Mostly, I'm nervous because there will be more tired, y'all! This is Arlington. Essentially, DFW area. Nearly 3-hour drive one way! Then 3 hours home. Then an all-day event! Oh there will be tired!

Being disabled, I guess it's not wrong to say I'm getting old before my time. But I can say that 2019 marks a year of slowing down for me. I've always said I'd leave the road when it stopped being fun. It's still fun, in many ways, but it's harsh on my body. Not just hard. It's debilitating on my body. So, I will be looking at other means to promote from 2020 onward. Oh i'll still do Kilgore Geekend, Tyler Comic Con, Longview Comic Con (if they keep doing it) and maybe a couple others here and there, but no I have already proven this year that I can't stay constantly on the go. That's okay though. A couple of opportunities are opening up for me and I hope my fans will like what we will have gone on.

Question: Does anyone even read these blogs? No one comments. No one asks me questions or anything anymore. There's no interaction from my many great fans. As I shift my efforts, do I keep the blog as a part of that or no?

As always, this blog is brought to you by the letters W, E and H and by the number 2.
