One thing I was worried about before going to this years edition of
Spirit West Coast Monterey was I had such a great time at last years
event, there was no way I could have as good of a time. No need to
worry however, once again my entire family had a great time. I met some
great new people, and caught up with some old SWC friends.
worry I had was the date of the event. I was kinda scared it might be a
ghost town being that usually everyone loves to spend time with their
family during a 4th of July weekend. Well it wasn't a ghost town, but
attendance was down 40% this year. Sounds pretty bad huh? Well lucky for
us we sold more books this year than last!
I just wanted to
thank some people because with out them, I wouldn't have such a great
time! First off of course my LORD and Savior Jesus Christ. Jim Kagel
Jr., Jamie Cosley, and Eric Merced. They are the true super stars of my
ministry. My Parents Joe and Adalia Pereira for their amazing support!
My wife for letting me be me! Love you baby! My children that are here
Joey and Jayden for being such good boys while I exhibited at the event.
To my soon to be child Joshua for not coming out sooner!!! It really
would of put me in a pickle! Ka-Blam Digital Printing, Jak Prints. My
fellow Christian Comic Book creators, Bryan Mero, Bob Luedke, Pat Boone,
Randall Clark, and Greg Lucero. A special thank you to the SWC
volunteers, you are amazing!!! Brandon Barr and Mike Lynch for their
sound advice, and friendship. Comfort Inn Marina, the punk Christian
rock group The Kings Kids. To all who purchase a book for the child,
