My local convention is trying to get a hold of steve blum. They've contacted him directly and received emails back stating his excitement to come. He told them to message his agent, which is technically his wife, and they did. Two weeks later they still have no response. I suggested they just shoot steve an email directly and let him know of the issue. I also suggested that they ask other cons how they got in contact with steve. We'd really love to have him as a guest but what are some other options if any? Any sort of help would be greatly appreciated.

We've made contact with Steve before too. He can sometimes take weeks/months to get back in touch.

The rule of thumb with many guests is give them up to 4 weeks to reply back and big guests up to 6 weeks.

He is a high-demand guest and you will need a hefty budget. He won't break the ban in comparison media con guests but don't expect him to come out cheap.

Yea he'd pretty much be our only guest to my understanding and I know he's expensive. We tried contacting him months ago and now we're to the point where we'd have to set a deadline in order for him to respond (at least I'd hope). We had sent out emails earlier too and I shot one over to momocon. Turns out he's only allowed to do two con's max per month according to his agent. I've tried to look into everything possible. Is there a way you could message me what his ballpark price would be please? I'd like to know if we should keep pursuing this or if we should look at other alternatives.

LOL, Steve isn't married (how do these rumors get started?)

His current agent is actually his ex girlfriend. (other than that, not gonna go into his personal life, don't see why that was even brought up in the first place).

Yup, its not that she doesn't "allow" him to do more than 2 cons a month, its more along the lines of as busy an actor as he is, doing 2 cons a month in addition to the regular work he does is the max strain he wants to deal with. (i actually know of a VA who only does a max of 4 cons a year for pretty much this same reason, he just is always working and cons take him away from work)

He'll be a guest at AUSA this weekend, i'll see if i can confirm current contact info (although if you're contacting Trina, you're pretty much doing the right thing)

Ty and sorry about the misinformation. I was told it was his wife. I have no idea how it got started either lol. Anyways sorry about that. And yes. We have been contacting Trina and no response thus far. We've been sending stuff since the beginning of Sept. There was contact directly with Steve around July and serious interest was expressed about our con. There was even discussion of panels and he even asked if he could just walk around and hang with attendees. We're letting him do whatever he wants and we'd be OK with it. After July though, we didn't receive much back and we were told to contact his agent at a later date. Started up in September and haven't seen a thing. Thanks for the help and sorry again about the wife thing.

Just found out steve's contact info completely changed. Trina is no longer in charge of it. Would explain our lack of communication. Finally got an email from her today, 2 months after the fact.
