Another wee update:
We're getting ready for the 2019 Texas Pinball Festival reveal of Coin-op Carnival's inaugural issue and the first stop on our North American Tour! Postcards just arrived...

Okay, now for the important stuff...
Quoted from PinballSTAR:
Open invite Ryan if you aren't making Allentown (surely you are at VFW same weekend) and want to sell books at Allentown - send them to me I will devote table space for you and I don't want a dime out of it... I'll sell what I can for you. Always happy to support the good folks in the hobby like yourself... Hell, set up a pre-order and have folks pick them up from me if you'd like. I don't need more to do at a show - but guys like you who DO things in the hobby need to be supported in any way possible. Let me know brother ! : )
Joe...wow! That's quite the offer, as I KNOW how slammed you are at shows. I was at York in October 2018 and couldn't believe the line-up you had! Jersey Jack games, Multimorphic's P3, Chicago Gaming Remakes, The Mafia, Thunderbirds, and Spooky games! Not to mention all the totes and shirts of your own! So, believe me, I know this offer doesn't come lightly and really means a lot to Nick and I. As Nick mentioned...
So, we'll see how that shakes out first. Hope to see you this coming weekend in Texas, though! Will you be vending there?
Texas Pinball Festival! Comic-Con International!! Chicago Pinball Expo!!! ...and...the Book Loft?
*LOL* Solvang is my hometown bookstore. They've been incredibly supportive of me over the years and I'll be visiting family, so it just made sense to do a hometown stop. Looking forward to meeting you there, PismoArcade!
I think I'm ready...I've been practicing signing my name for the past 30-some-odd years. Here's hoping I don't freeze-up during game time.
Awesome! I'll be behind a table all three days. Please come introduce yourself, Wolvie!
Nick and I both love York. Such an incredible diversity of games, from Bingos, to Woodrails, to E.M.s, early solid state, DMD's, and the most modern of games (see the Pinball Star list I mentioned in this post!!!). I will not be at York this year, but Nick will be. ...which was a really tough decision for me, but we both thought it best if I opted for the Chicago Pinball Expo and a comic shop signing up in Wisconsin, rather than having us both double-up at York in 2019. You know...extending our promotional reach and all that. Anyhow, you'll have to make me jealous with stories of games you got to play at York this year!
I guess we're about to find out this weekend! ...hard to believe it's almost here!
We would love to visit Cal Extreme. Neither Nick nor I have ever been (despite me growing up in California). While it didn't work out for our packed 2019 schedule, you never know in the future.
Thanks, again, for all the support! We are SO READY to put this publication out into the world this coming weekend!!! Can't wait to hear what you all think once it's in your hands.
Ryan and Nick
