Greetings everyone in the Texas convention community. What a ride the last eleven months have been! This goes without saying, of course. From convention goers to artists to organizers to vendors and everyone else who has enjoyed the convention scene in the Lone Star State over the years before and since my labor of love website was launched, everyone has felt the blow that is living in a pandemic.
So today I have set my sights on recovery, at least of this site and my attention to the thing. As shows begin to announce their plans for this year (and before a quarter of it is gone) I have a new determination to provide the most comprehensive listings of Texas conventions of fandom interest available anywhere. There was I time I could accurately state that you can find all of the conventions I list somewhere, but you could not find every single one of them listed on a single sight anywhere else.
It is high time that time comes back anew!

I was recently interviewed for a new website for Dallas/Fort Worth and surrounding areas, North Texas Nerd. The interview is All-Con heavy (I have been a part of that show its entire existence), but touches on many aspects of conventions in the Lone Star State including CAP-TX.

The Convention Awareness Project -TX website went live on Tuesday, January 1, 2013 and featured what is intended to be the most comprehensive listing of conventions in Texas to be found anywhere on the internet. Spawned from a personal dedication to the Texas convention scene and as an offshoot of two live Convention Awareness Day events held in past years, it was my express purpose to create a one-stop resource for convention goers to discover every single show being held in the Lone Star State. Furthermore, I wanted to feature more than just a month-to-month listing, so I began to seek out interviews with the organizers and promoters of the shows featured.
