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!
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
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!)
