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!
Just so the above video makes any kind of sense, I should explain that in addition to my Chooseomatic gig, I also write and draw Conspiracy Friends, a daily webcomic.
Conspiracy Friends Book Two: The Weird Turn Pro is ready to be printed, and we've launched a Kickstarter to make it happen! You can get your copy of the book, plus Book One if you don't have it already, as well as a custom print of your favorite CF comic and additional swag. And if we meet the first stretch goal, we're even doing a sweet limited edition hardcover. TELL THE WORLD
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
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!
