I'll be on KIRO radio at 2pm and 6pm today (that's Seattle time, and 93.7 on Seattle airwaves, although you can also listen to it live on the web). It turns out my neighbor Sean is a producer on the Ron and Don show, and on the weekends, during the "best of Ron and Don" recaps, he slips in some original content. Today, that original content is ME.
We did the interview on Friday, and talked a lot about Choose Your Own Adventures and Conspiracy Friends. I remember when he asked me how I got into doing comics, for some reason I told a really long story going back to high school? I should have maybe started that one a little closer to the present? Anyway, if I get any kind of permanent web link I'll drop it here, until then, plan on sitting in your car and listening to the radio at 2!
SRGE is happening this weekend at the convention center! (It moved, so don't go to that weird hall over by Key Arena where it was last year) Two days of old school video game goodness! And the first ten purchases of the day come with a free Time Travel Dinosaur sampler SO GET HERE FAST.
Saturday is Free RPG Day, and the culmination of the Chooseomatic Books Kickstarter that we ran in March! Click here to find your local participating game shop - they should have three copies of "Time Travel Dinosaur: Mesozoic Mayhem" to give away! There are 2,100 copies in roughly 700 game shops across the globe, so go get yours! It's a 90-page sample of the upcoming third Chooseomatic, and it's AWESOME.
And if you're anywhere near Seattle, come hang out with me at one of the following events (I'm bringing along extra books, so there will be plenty):
in the U District
11am - 1pm
2pm - 5pm
AFK ELIXERS & EATERY
6 pm until I pass out
(They're open until 3am, WHO KNOWS WHAT COULD HAPPEN)
I won't be making an actual appearance, but I'm sending a whole mess of signed copies, so go grab one!
Just a quick note to say that I'll be at Spokane Comicon on Saturday at Spokane Community College! I expect to see all you Spokanians there, NO EXCEPTIONS. I'll have the new Conspiracy Friends book for sale, so come get a copy. Also, I think my Mom is from Spokane? I TOTALLY HAVE SPOKANE ROOTS YOU GUYS, THIS IS GOING TO BE SO RAD
(Pictured here is the exclusive "Sprocket the Comic-Cat" book done for the convention by my friend Matt Brazee, who did a Conspiracy Friends guest strip last year. So you should totally get a copy of that too!)
This weekend is Vancouver Comic Arts Festival, which I will be attending along with roughly one million amazing comics people. It's free, so if you're a Vancouverite, come say hi!
I'm PRETTY FREAKING EXCITED to announce that we'll be debuting Conspiracy Friends Volume One at the show! I just got copies in this week, and they look great. I'm currently working on a method to sell signed copies directly from the site, but if you CAN'T POSSIBLY WAIT THAT LONG, and you're somewhere in the United States, you can get them from Amazon right now.
So, to recap, Yay, Vancouver! And Conspiracy Friends Volume One: not officially on sale yet, but actually kind of on sale.
This weekend is Fan Expo Vancouver at the Vancouver Convention Centre (which is extra classy and Canadian because the r is before the e)! I'll be holed up with other authors, selling books and giving away buttons and partying like a rock star. I'm kind of excited to meet The Last Unicorn author Peter Beagle, not to mention Draco Malfoy and Judge Dredd and that Arrow guy from "Arrow" and Pippin and Q and Bruce Campbell and SO MANY CELEBRITIES OH MY GOD YOU GUYS.
Alas, this weekend is also Norwescon here in sunny Seattle, which means I had to choose between the two. It's the first time I've missed Norwescon in like 4 years, so HAVE AN EXTRA DRINK FOR ME, NORWESCON HOMIES.
