I did this with The Broadcast and had some success with it so I figured I would do it again and give readers a chance to win a free copy of Family Ties. Like before, you have to be a member of the Good Reads website to enter, but membership is free and definitely worth it if you’re an avid reader. However, if you’re already a member you can just click below and you are automatically entered to win. Good luck!
So as Noel and I continue to finish up Family Ties, something occurred to me. Together, he and I have created almost 400 pages of comic art. It’s kind of crazy, when I think about it like that. It’s even crazier when I think that it’s been five whole years since I sent him that first e-mail introducing myself and a little book called The Broadcast.
This weekend I’ll be making an appearance at the Kokomo Con.
This is a great little con with a lot of indie creators. It’s only the con’s second year, but it is a great time. I can’t speak too highly of it. I know the guys who put it together and it is well worth a few hours drive if you are in the Midwest and can make it. I’ll be there for most of the day and will be appearing on a panel at noon on the writing and publishing of comics!
For those that can’t make it, and I realize that will probably be the majority of you, I recently a couple podcasts interviews that were a whole lot of fun. We talked about a wide range of topics. The guys on the Bizarre Podcast are huge fans of The Broadcast and we spent a great deal of time talking about the making of that book. Then, over on the It’s All Up To You, I got a chance to discuss some of my other work too and the uphill battle of trying to make it in the comics industry. You can listen to either online at the above links or do a search and download them via iTunes. Both interviews are pretty long but well worth the time if you want a little behind-the-scenes glimpse.
Hope to see some of you this weekend!!
Just wanted to drop in and let everyone know I’ll be set up in Artist Alley at this weekend’s Chicago Comic Con at the Donald E Stephens Convention Center in Rosemont, IL. I’ll be there on Friday and Saturday with copies of The Broadcast for sale along with some of my other writing — including my first work on a mainstream superhero book, a story in this year’s Batman 80-Page Giant. I hope everyone who goes takes a few minutes to stop by and say “hi.”
For those who can’t make Chicago, I’ll be signing books on Wednesday at Comics Cubed in Kokomo, IN from 4-7pm. If your local I’d love to see you there!
