Between now and next Wednesday morning
Create a display with prices and marketing text for Schlock-related small shiny things
Modify and spray paint a cardboard box so that it becomes a useful bin for people to peruse art and posters for sale.
Make and laminate price signs for the booth. Be clever and entertaining with the marketing text while also being clear.
Make fliers with maps that go to Tracy Hickman’s booth and Travis Waltons artist alley table.
Print out labels for each individual art piece and affix them to the backs of the art pieces.
Figure out how much inventory to haul to FanX then stack all of that inventory in the test booth.
Make card sets for Strength of Wild Horses.
Assemble boxed sets for sale at FanX booth
Accept delivery of Strength of Wild Horses at the warehouse.
Make sure the point of sale system is updated with everything that will be on sale. Make sure I have back up means of managing if internet goes down while we’re trying to sell things.
Set up all the things in the booth, including lights and signs. Make it look like a welcoming little store where all the bajillion people at FanX want to shop.
Disassemble the charming little store in such a way that I can remember how to set it back up. Stack all of it to see everything will fit into my car or if I’ll need to borrow/arrange for an additional vehicle.
Begin putting things in motion on promotional pushes for LOTA and SWH. The SWH push is imminent because I’ll have books next week.
Make carpooling arrangements so that I can be in Salt Lake all day on Friday.
Stock the house with sufficient food that the kids can feed themselves Friday evening and all day on Saturday.
Wednesday through next Saturday
Set up the little store in the Salt Palace.
Run the little store amid masses of people. Hope they buy enough things to pay for the expense and effort.
Re-stock the store as needed each morning. (I really want to have to re-stock things, because that would mean that we sold things.)
Beyond next week
I need to package and ship SWH to my lovely backers. This will be about 300 packages.
Fix up the basement room so that Kiki can live there over the summer. Most notably we need to put up sheet rock on one wall so that she has a place to hang her whiteboards and the calendars she needs to track her work.
Challenge coin PDF
Cobble stones book cover redesigns, and the 2013 book. Maybe a Cobble Stones holiday book.
Promotional push for LOTA and SWH.
Mounting original art for sale on Ebay, timed with the promotional push for LOTA.
Other stuff. I know there is more stuff. Hopefully I’ll remember it once I’ve cleared some of this stuff away.
