I'm at Norwescon at the SeaTac Doubletree all weekend, selling books just outside the dealer's room in Author Row, and lending my questionable expertise on writing, publishing and pop culture to a whole bunch of panels. The guest of honor this year is some guy named George? I'm also super excited about meeting Ms. Marvel writer G. Willow Wilson! And all you guys. Come say hi!

I'm at ECCC all this weekend, in artist alley, next to the guy who does Owly! So come say hi, and pick up the brand new Conspiracy Friends Volume 2 paperback (if for some reason you weren't a kickstarter backer, but you probably were, so it's all good). I also have plenty of copies of all three Chooseomatics, and some odds and ends. IT WILL BE A NONSTOP PARTY AT ECCC BOOTH C04, SO DON'T MISS OUT.
Also, for the first time in THE HISTORY OF FOREVER, it's super easy to find my table: Come through the main doors, then make very first right. Go all the way to the back wall and turn right again! Keep going ti'll you hit another wall, then back up four tables because you missed me. Look for my Zombocalypse Now & Time Travel Dinosaur banners!
WOOO ECCC 2015
He's tiny and perfect and SOMEHOW ALIVE AND LIVING WITH US IN OUR APARTMENT. My Conspiracy Friends webcomic is on hiatus for a couple of weeks while I figure out WHAT THE HELL I'M DOING WITH A BABY HOLY CRAP, but otherwise it's business as usual here at Chooseomatic central. If you're planning on attending Emerald City Comicon or Norwescon in a few weeks, swing by my table and I'll ramble at you in a incoherent, sleep-deprived haze and show you one million baby pics!
The Conspiracy Friends Book 2 kickastarter was a SMASHING success, inching just past my wildest dreams and hitting the final stretch goal to fund hardcover editions of both books. Thanks to everyone who backed the project! Alas, those hardcovers are a kickstarter exclusives, but we'll see about bringing them back when it comes time to fund book 3. For now, you can still order the standard paperback edition of book one here, and we'll be releasing book two to the general public in a month or so after all the kickstarter backers get their copies.
(And if you didn't even realize I HAD a daily webcomic, you should probably start reading from the beginning...)
Thanks again, everyone! You rule!
I did this interview with Ronnie at SciFiMonkeys at Jet City Comic Show! Watch four minutes of me being uncomfortably aware of the camera, gesturing at invisible books, and trying to generally figure out what to do with my hands!
It seems like I see Ronnie and Carmen and the rest of the SciFiMonkeys monkeys at pretty much every convention I go to (which is roughly one million conventions), so I'm pretty excited to finally be featured on the site. They are great folks! They make a great website! Go read it right now!
Okay, I've kinda been falling down on the convention coverage social media job. Bit to all the amazing humans I met at Pac Con Spokane and Bellingham Comicon over the past few weeks, YOU ARE THE BEST AND I LOVE YOU even if I didn't actually get around to posting anything here about either con.
I will remedy this situation starting RIGHT NOW: Saturday November 8 is Jet City Comic Show in Tacoma, and I will TOTALLY BE THERE along with such comics luminaries as Peter Bagge, Clayton Crain and Megan Kelso. It's something of a homecoming for me, since I totally lived in Tacoma for like eighteen years or something and used to run the weekly newspaper down there. So come see me at the convention center Saturday! We will party SO HARD YOU GUYS
