2. JayCee - Event Details:
a. Post SoonerCon Discussion
SoonerCon was pretty cool, there were a good amount of sales, and plenty of contacts with other authors and artists.

b. Alternatives to Banners
Many of us at SoonerCon saw a display made out of small PVC pipes that had prints and such hung on it. Might be an idea that's an alternative to banners!

c. Prints as Alternative Sales Items
Prints are a pretty cool thing and we should look into getting them. (May be difficult/impossible with regards to licensing rights.)

d. Looking Forward
We may look into trading books with several authors in Texas to broaden our market! We're going to discuss the logistics and financial incentives, but this could be a cool idea!
