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
A lot of folks seem to have caught on to the fact that my pay-what-you-want gumroad store means that you can choose to pay any amount of money for Chooseomatic ebooks, including zero dollars. What? Free ebooks? That's CRAZY, you say! Well, I agree, but people are doin' it.
But what about the people who only read print books, but ALSO don't want to pay anything? We've got them covered as well! We're giving away three free paperback copies of Time Travel Dinosaur over at goodreads. So if you live in the U.S. or Canada, go enter! SOMEONE is going to get a rad book mailed to them, so it might as well be you!
We're pleased as all hell to announce the long-awaited release of the third Chooseomatic Book, TIME TRAVEL DINOSAUR.
You can order a signed paperback directly from me, or pay what you want for the digital version. That's right, NAME YOUR PRICE and download the TTD ebook as an epub, mobi (for kindle) and pdf. BOOM. Don't say I never did anything for you.
(If you roll with amazon, you can also get it from amazon.)
ABOUT THE BOOK:
You work for the Time Travel Investigation Agency, a job which, to be honest, is mind-meltingly dull. That is, until a raving lunatic in a lab coat breaks the laws of physics and drastically alters the space-time continuum (changing your memory right along with it). Set off on a wild adventure through the Mesozoic Era, the Middle Ages, the steampunk 1880s, and the distant future in an attempt to safeguard the true timeline.
The timeline where people evolved from dinosaurs.
Time Travel Dinosaur is a sci-fi/comedy reimagining of the choose-your-own-path stories you grew up with. Find one of 76 possible endings, or get stuck in a time loop and literally read this book forever.
I'M SO EXCITED ABOUT THIS BOOK, YOU GUYS!
It took more than two years to write, and I think it's the best thing I've ever done. Yeeheehee!
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.
UPDATE: You can listen to the interview from the KIRO archives here!
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!
