It will be another month before we get the forum up and running, so until then I’ll be using some posts here on my blog to get messages out for different Sugar Ninjas. Today’s special message comes from Sugar Ninja Heather Lewis:

 “Hello all you Sugar Ninjas! There is a Sugar Ninjas table at AnimeNEXT (June 10-12th) being run by Avantika, Melissa, and Heather. We welcome everyone to visit the table! If you want to sell artwork/books/etc, please email Heather at MadelineLimeatgmaildotcom (of course, replace “at” with “@” and “dotcom” with “.com”) with the subject: “Sugar Ninjas Table!” We’re asking that anyone submitting more than one or two items to please assist in the table fee. You do not have to attend the convention to be a part of the table, we are willing to place and sell your items for you, but we ask you also submit some business cards with your package of items. Even if you don’t have anything to sell, but are attending the convention, you are welcome to come hang out at the table and help explain what and who we are to the con attendees.”

As it was our first attempt,  Zelda and I faced many difficulties related to behind-the-scenes production issues, as well as my inability to say no to anyone, ha ha. Sugar Ninjas Vol. 1 was also simultaneously edited while Zelda was bringing to life the first version of the website. Considering some of the stuff I was going through two summers ago, it’s hard to believe that we got either project in shape in time for our premiere at the 2009 DRAGON CON in Atlanta, GA.
