I’m sorry folks, Its been a while since i spoke to you, and no, its not you, its me. I’ve been a lousy penpal,  the worst kind of friend, and frankly I’m disgusted in myself.

First critical piece of news: WE WON TRAINING FUNDING! Its not allowed to be spent on technical development, but we can use it to make sure the business end of Electricomics is as spick and span as we can. We will get legal advice, one to one clinics with digital startup specialists, and financial advice on all the back end stuff that will mean we sink or swim in the long run.

Second thing, is that footage is now up of the London Book Fair panel hosted by Nazeli Kuyregyan of EuropeComics that I did a few weeks ago with Nicolas Lebedet of Izneo.com ,Russell Willis of Sequential and moderated by Paul Gravett. Here is the first part, and there are seven more.

Lastly, my inbox is stuffed to bursting with convention invitations and in most cases I am saying YESYESYES to them. if i can get to you relatively easily, and i am not busy, then I’m there, banging the Electricomics drum, and dancing the Electricomics dance.

Here are the events I have confirmed to appear at, either as myself Leah Moore, or as Electricomics personified. If you live nearby and want to come ask me stuff, sign stuff, or join in the Electricomics dance, please do. I will be demonstrating the comics, and dishing out unwanted advice.
