Lucca Comics and Games Convention Schedule


In general, I don't do many conventions. It's not that I don't enjoy them, but travel can be trying (Robin has had two back surgeries and being on a plane for any extended period of time is painful, and I don't like going anywhere she doesn't come). Plus, unless the publisher is footing the bill, it can be pretty expensive. Don't get me wrong, I love to see fans, but if it's going to cost me several days of writing time and a few thousand dollars...well, you can see why I don't go to many conventions.

But when an opportunity arose to go to the Lucca Comics and Games Convention in Italy...with all expenses paid by my Italian publisher and the convention organizers, how could I say no? Especially when they offered to pay for all of Robin's travel as well.

If you don't know anything about the Lucca festival (I didn't until I was invited), here is a great video that gives you a good idea what we're going to be doing from October 31 - November 4th.


The convention has been described as "the western world's biggest geek meet." It's huge! Over 500 events, concerts, parades, and activities are held in historical buildings and on the streets, taking over the entire city. In 2017 the festival celebrated its 51th anniversary, with more than 50 international guests and about 245,000 attendees. To put that into perspective, Dragoncon (held in Atlanta each year) has about 80,000 attendees, and New York Comic Con has about 130,000. Those conventions are dwarfed when compared to Lucca.

Below is my convention schedule. If you are going to be at Lucca, please drop by and see me at any of these times.

  • Wed 10/31 11:00 - 12:00 Signing at the Armenia Booth
  • Thur 11/01 11:00 - 12:00 Signing at the Armenia Booth
  • Thur 11/01 12:00 - 14:00 Presentation on publishing (self and traditional) at Villa Gioiosa
  • Thur 11/01 19:30 - 21:30 Ceremony Night and Gala Dinner at the Giglio Opera House
  • Fri    11/02 11:00 - 12:00 Signing at the Armenia Booth
  • Sat    11/03 11:00 - 12:00 Signing at the Armenia Booth
  • Sat   11/03  16:00 - 17:00 Q&A Public Meeting at Ingelis Hall
If you won't be attending the Lucca Festival, we can still meet up.  I'll be in Florence on 10/30, 11/4, and 11/5 and a little bit on 11/6, and in the town of Lucca starting early on 10/31 and for a little bit on 11/4. Just drop me an email and let me know where and how you want to meet and we'll do the best we can to accommodate you.

  1. Dear Mr. Sullivan, I'm soooo happy to meet you in person at LuccaComics. I've read your books in english, and now I'm rereading them in italian thanks to Armenia. I'm a wannabe-novelist myself, I wrote a book and I'm trying to get it published... or maybe self-publish it! Meeting you will be a great opportunity to learn the right way to do so, and I hope to attend to your conference (I've applied but still no answer). If not, it would be fantastic to meet you elsewhere!

    2. I was lucky and I got accepted to the workshop (I was the guy in the back row, the one that uses Scrivener!). It was very interesting and useful, all the questions I had were answered, and I was too shy to ask more! So thank you very much again! I am still waiting for answers from traditional publishers, but I am more confident in trying to self-publish my 2-volumes swashbuckling fantasy.
      I hope you enjoyed Lucca and the convention, and I hope to see you again!

  9. Looking for coursework help in the UK is very common today. The country has set the standards of education extremely high. The college and university authorities revise the curriculum every year as per the demands of the job sectors and add new subjects. Therefore, students find it tough to cope with the extreme study pressure and a shortage of time to complete the papers. Speak to the customer care executives and check if they assign law dissertation writers from the UK. This is especially applicable for papers on the law because only a person from the UK who have specialized in law can do the papers properly.
