Totally last-minute, because I am like that right now:
I’ll be reading from Dear Creature tonight at 8PM, at the Jack London Bar in downtown Portland. In the mix: hi-res projections of my book’s art, and an acting partner to help me flesh things out: uber-talented comics creator Dylan Meconis! So, if you need entertainment tonight and want to see Dylan’s take on three evil crabs and a large Italian floozy, it’s the THING.
This month I turn 30. The 20’s were good. 29 particularly so. A new baby girl, two books published, steady freelance work, and a great road trip in our crazy old van. There she is, in all her mismatched bumpered glory. Next time, I’ll post art, but for now, you get an 80’s van. I think you win.
If you want to win big, though, you can meet the new older me at Emerald City Comic Con, where I’ll be boothing at #223. Want commissions? I will do commissions for you, sir or madam. I’ll also have copies of Dear Creature and Green River Killer, plus art prints. And I’m in Monsters and Dames again, too.
Speaking of Dear Creature, it just got a starred review from Library Journal, which is a good thing. I love librarians. Someday I want to write a musical set in a library. There will be lots of soft shoe and shushing noises.
And now, I’m off to The Creep for Dark Horse. Pencils, pencils, and more pencils. I must fly!
