Orsini's Cosplay book available now

Cosplay, by Arlington author Lauren Orsini was published this year, and is featured in Barnes and Noble. This photo is from the Falls Church store.

Orsini has long been active in anime and manga fandom, and worked for some years with Anime USA. This book was done on contract, and she wrote about it on her blog under the title, "Writing a book in seven weeks."

blog_sidebar_headThere she noted, "It's quickly becoming apparent that the actual writing part of the book is going to be a cakewalk compared to getting the photos in order. I didn't write a word of the book this week. Instead I spent my time organizing the cosplay photos my publisher has already given me, plus searching for and contacting talented cosplay photographers all over the world."

By week 5 the writing was becoming the focus, "...I've reordered the sections in a way that feels good to me (now they're all focusing on a genre, with the final chapter on original costuming)..."

She told ComicsDC, "Traditionally publishing a book isn't easy or lucrative, but it's an experience unlike any other. People have sent me photos of my book from places like California, Florida, and New York. I'm really grateful to Carlton Limited and Sterling Publishing for giving me this opportunity."

Photos of Congressman Lewis' March: Book One talk

These images are from the Barnes and Noble in Washington, DC. Along with Rep. Lewis is his co-author Andrew Aydin. As you might expect, Lewis is an excellent speaker, and carried the crowd along with him with no trouble. I was taken with the interracial makeup of the crowd. Most book talks I go to are overwhelming white. Several people had over a half-dozen copies to have signed. The hardcover is sold out, and the paperback is about to be. Big Planet Bethesda still has copies, I'm told.

Barnes + Noble suggests...

At the Seven Corners' Barnes and Noble bookstore this weekend, I bought some Green Lantern novels (an old failing of mine) and in addition to a receipt, I got a slip labelled "You May Also Like..." with some other Green Lantern books, and a couple of superhero novels. I didn't particularly need the recommendations, but it's nice to see them trying harder.

Manga and comics at Barnes and Noble

I've been taking a few shots of comics and manga displays lately, since they've changed and expanded so much. Here's some shots from the Barnes & Noble on Route 50 in Northern Virginia. Larger versions of the pictures can be seen and downloaded on my flickr site.
