Crozonia - Now What?

Just tallied up my sales since the beginning in 2006. I have sold around 2500 issues so far, including 1500 Issue #1. Not bad with no distribution, just selling at conventions. I just sent my submission package to Diamond. Crossing fingers, hoping Crozonia will be accepted. I really think I can make another 2000 - 3000 new readers through distribution if I put enough marketing muscle into it.
I also want to reach new convention markets. The fans at Wizard World Chicago are good to me, so I'll return when Issue #4 is published. And Toronto is my hometown, so I'm at Fan Expo every year. I really want to go to Wonder Con (San Francisco), MegaCon (Orlando), Wizard World Philly, Wizard World LA, and Emerald City Comic Con (Seattle). I hope to hit at least two of those cities next year.

Watch out!

I'm totally biased, but I think you'd do well @ Emerald City, it's a really comics friendly crowd, especially for indies, moreso than either of the Wizard shows... just my two cents, no matter what, continued success, hope Diamond picks up the book!

Thanks Techno!
It's a hard choice between Seattle and Orlando as worthy shows before Chicago in August.
