    Actress Kate Mulgrew appears in conversation with Michelle Richmond on Sunday April 19, 2015 at 4:00 PM! Tickets ($40) are available at the link… Presented by Books Inc.

    Press Release:

    Spend Sunday Afternoon at The Chapel with Golden Globe and EMMY nominated actress Kate Mulgrew discussing her memoir, Born with Teeth, with Michelle Richmond, New York Times-bestselling author of Golden State.

    We know Kate Mulgrew for the strong women she’s played–Captain Janeway on Star Trek; the tough-as-nails “Red” on Orange is the New Black. Now, we meet the most inspiring and memorable character of all: herself. By turns irreverent and soulful, laugh-out-loud funny and heart-piercingly sad, Born with Teeth is the breathtaking memoir of a woman who dares to live life to the fullest, on her own terms.

    Golden Globe and EMMY nominee, Kate Mulgrew is an acclaimed fan-favorite actress whose performances span across television, film and stage.

    Mulgrew can currently be seen on Netflix’s engrossing hit series, Orange is the New Black. On the comedic drama about a woman imprisoned for transporting drug money Mulgrew stars as “Galina ‘Red’ Reznikov” who runs the prison’s kitchen. The series was renewed for a second season and is based on author Piper Kerman’s memoir Orange is the New Black: My Year in a Women’s Prison about her real life experiences.

    Mulgrew is internationally recognized for her famous portrayal of “Captain Janeway,” in which she made Star Trek franchise history as the first female captain in a leading role. She starred on Star Trek: Voyager for seven seasons and earned three Saturn Awards and one Satellite Award for her role. Mulgrew also went on to voice the character of Janeway in the PS2 and PC game Star Trek: Voyager Elite Force and Star Trek: Voyager Elite Force 2.

    Mulgrew received a Golden Globe nomination when she starred in Mrs. Columbo, the spin-off of the popular detective series. Previously, she had received recognition for her portrayal of “Mary Ryan” on the ABC soap Ryan’s Hope and on the ABC sitcom Heartbeat, which earned the People’s Choice Award for “Best New Drama.” Other notable television performances include Cheers, Murphy Brown, St. Elsewhere, NTSF: SD: SUV for Adult Swim, The Black Donnellys, Mercy, and Warehouse 13. Her film appearances include Star Trek: Nemesis, Throw Momma from the Train, A Stranger is Watching, and Remo Williams: The Adventure Begins.

    A classically trained theatre actress, Mulgrew toured throughout the United States as “Katharine Hepburn” in her one-woman stage play, Tea at Five, for which she was nominated for an Outer Critics Circle and Lucille Lortel Award.

    In 2008, Mulgrew was awarded with an Obie for her performance as “Clytemnestra” in Iphigenia 2.0, an exuberant and modern retelling of Iphigenia. Her other theatre credits include Equus, The American Dream, The Sandbox, Our Leading Lady, Black Comedy, Titus Andronicus, The Exonerated, The Royal Family, The Film Society, What the Butler Saw, Hedda Gabler, Measure for Measure, The Real Thing, Another Part of the Forest, Major Barbara, Antony and Cleopatra, and Somewhere Fun.

    About Michelle Richmond: Michelle Richmond is the author of Golden State, the New York Times bestseller The Year of Fog, the novels No One You Know and Dream of the Blue Room, the award-winning story collection The Girl in the Fall-Away Dress, and most recently the story collection Hum.

    Michelle has received the Catherine Doctorow Innovative Fiction Prize (2012), the Hillsdale Award for Fiction from the Fellowship of Southern Writers (2009), the Associated Writing Programs Award, and the Mississippi Review Fiction Prize.

    Event Signing Guidelines:

    – Kate Mulgrew will sign copies of her book only no photos or memorabilia.

    Wizard World Conventions Made Over 23 Million in 2014

    Press Release:

    Wizard World Reports 2014 Year End Financials

    106% Increase from 2013

    Wizar d WorldEl Segundo, CA, March 16, 2015 – Wizard World, Inc. (OTCBB: WIZD) (the “Company”), a leading provider of Comic Cons and pop culture conventions across the world, announced that the Company has released its 2014 audited financial results in its Annual Report on Form 10-K for the year ended December 31, 2014 (the “YE 2014”).

    Highlights include:

    • The Company hosted seventeen events in 2014: sixteen comic cons and one social con, bringing fans together with their favorite celebrities, artists, exhibitors in a pop culture and multimedia experience. This was an increase of nine events from the Company’s 2013 tour.

    • Convention revenue for the year ended December 31, 2014 was $23,060,178, an increase of $11,874,044 (or 106%) from $11,186,134 reported in the comparable year ended December 31, 2013. The significant increase in revenue in 2014 is primarily accredited to the increased number of events, better advertised and marketed events including more programming, an exciting list of celebrities and artists, and an increasing fan base, which all translates to higher revenue growth. Average revenue per event was $1,356,481.

    • Operating expenses were $6,823,253 in YE 2014, as compared to $3,921,585 for the same period in 2013, which was the result of increases in staffing and employment costs due to the increased number and size of the events, however the Company’s operating margins have improved year-over-year due to operating the events more efficiently.

    • Income from operations was $1,468,162 in YE 2014, as compared to $343,506 for the comparable period in 2013. The increase is primarily attributable to running more events and more profitable events during 2014, as compared to 2013.

    • The Company reported a net income of $995,617 or income per share of $0.02 for YE 2014, as compared to a net loss of $(3,637,735) or loss per share of ($0.09), in the comparable period in 2013. Income in 2014 was primarily generated from convention revenue and stronger profit margin versus the loss in 2013, which was non-cash generated from a loss on the fair value of the Company’s derivative liabilities. By the end of 2013, the Company successfully extinguished all derivative instruments.

    • As of December 31, 2014, the Company had working capital of $3,838,096 and as of March 16, 2015, there were 51,358,386 shares of common stock issued and outstanding.

    Additional highlights:
