I'm getting ready to formally launch two new online stores for Chooseomatic Books, but since I've been telling people all day at Rose City Comic Con that my my ebooks are pay-what-you-want, I figured I'd better get a link up PRONTO.
CHOOSEOMATIC EBOOKS! You can now name your price for any ebook we sell -- whatever you think is a fair price is what you pay. For the Chooseomatics (or for Tiny Quest) you'll get three files: pdf, mobi (for kindle), and epub (for nook, kobo or really any other ereader). The Conspiracy friends webcomic collection is pdf only.
AUTOGRAPHED PAPERBACKS! We're also launching a separate store so you can order autographed paperbacks straight from the source. (And YES, Time Travel Dinosaur is available for order here, but we won't have actual copies in hand for a few more weeks, so they won't ship until some time in October).
It's Rose City Comic Con time again in Portland Sept 20-21 , and I'll SUPER BE THERE. I'm at table P-09 in Artist alley, as you can tell by the largely useless map below. Come say hi! Get free buttons! See my awesome new banner for the Chooseomatic that you can't buy for another week! Or buy one of my books that you don't have already — the Conspiracy Friends collection is new since the last time I was in Oregon, and it's PRETTY GREAT.
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.
I'm at Emerald City Comicon this weekend, so if you're one of the seventy billion people coming to the show, swing by and say hi! To find me, cross the sky bridge and hang a right, then find the escalator on the far wall and descend to the weird extra-space offshoot floor. I'm right next to legendary comics writer Peter David, and just a few tables down from John Scalzi, so let me assure you that the party over there will be HOPPIN'.
(Alternately, once you get your badges you can just enter the convention center across the street on the North side of Pike, take the escalator up three floors and BOOM.
Oh, and in on other news: kickstarter kickstarter kickstarter.
