Failure: Although I had great support from key friends and family, the Wolf Runner campaign must, alas, be deemed a failure as I have gotten exactly 0 responses.
Success!: I received my first royalty check as an author.
Failure: The promotional materials I brought to Penguicon 2013 were woefully inadequate.
Success!: I attended some wonderful sessions, won a Cabin in the Woods blue-ray in Whedonite trivia, co-hosted a successful discussion on the whether or not Steampunk is SciFi, reconnected with some old friends, and did a fair amount of networking. Also, someone took my picture because they thought my costume was cool.
