Hoo boy, the book launch is almost upon us! Here’s some of what I’ll be up to this fall:
September 13: Margo Book One officially hits stores!
September 13: Athens GA – Book Launch Party, 6:30-7:30pm at Avid Bookstore
September 17-18: Bethesda, MD – Small Press Expo, table L13
October 29-30: Cambridge, MA –Massachusetts Independent Comics Expo
November 17-19: Miami, FL – Miami Book Fair
Hey, the release of the first Margo book is right around the corner! In fact, it’s already in the Previews catalog, so now would be a great time to stop in at your local comic shop and make sure they’re getting you a copy!
Sorry about the lack of updates, but it’s been a busy week or two! If you’ve been checking in on Eleanor’s social media, you might know that she’s been on an epic, months-long cross-country bike trip, and she finally came home last week! I went to pick her up, and as we were stretching our legs outside of a QT gas station in Atlanta, we encountered a small, would-be feline hitchhiker.
Updates should resume next week! And I’ve got some exciting news I’m sitting on, so stay tuned.
Hey all, hope you’re enjoying the story. Just a few quick horn-toots and then I’ve got to get back to the drawing board.
Margo was nominated for a Reuben award, which are a weird sort of old-school award traditionally for newspaper cartoonists, that’s been trying to expand out into online comics and other new media. Drive by Dave Kellett and Octopus Pie by Meredith Gran are up in the same category, so I’m not holding out too much hope, but It’s An Honor Just to Be Nominated (IAHJTBN™)
And I missed this until it was already passed, but Margo was also on the shortlist for the Slate Cartoonist Studio prize – though Boulet ended up with it. Is it kosher to horn-toot about a prize you didn’t win? Oh well, once again, IAHJTBN™
And a prize actually in the hand! The kids book I made with Eleanor, Flop to the Top, won a gold medal from the Society of Illustrators! It’s my understanding you get an actual gold medal for these, so I look forward to hucking it at my enemies.
