Promotion, promotion!

‘Philosophy: a Discovery in Comics’ is out! This calls for a Big Wave of Promotion! And the fun thing is, I can do it from the comfort of my own bed. Which is a very aristocratic thing to do, I recently learned – kings and queens used to conduct all their affairs, including receiving important guests, from their bed. So there – I’m not lazy, I’m royal.

The book has its own Facebook page you can like to keep informed about mentions, reviews and blog updates.

I am on Twitter now, delivering random tweets about all kinds of subjects.

I signed up on GoodReads.com, where I have an Author Profile – you can check out my other books, see which books I read and join me in discussion groups. At some point, there will be a GiveAway, where you can win a signed copy of the book!

I’m also working on an Amazon Author Page, where I can monitor the (hopefully) worldwide sales.

And then there’s always my own Facebook page, where you can befriend me and laugh at some of my Dutch status updates (about half of them are in Dutch, the others are in English).

Confused yet? Want to be my fan but don’t know where to start? Well, you’re on the right way by reading this blog, because this is where I’ll post the most important stuff. If you want to be a little more intimate, I’d recommend joining me on Facebook – I do post some doodles & jokes there that don’t end up in the blog. And if you’re already on GoodReads, I’d really like to connect there too, because I’m still exploring it.

And – I almost forgot – the purpose of all this promotion: BUY THE BOOK! You won’t regret it! It’s fun and informative!

What book, you ask…? Well: this book – here’s a link to the information page on my website, margreetdeheer.com.

Two new books out this week: Geary’s and Philosophy.

You can find at your better comics bookstore this week two of our books just in:

Rick Geary’s latest “Lovers’ Lane”

and “Philosophy: a Discovery in Comics” by Margreet de Heer who’s been holding a wonderful blog here.

Check ’em out at your comics shop and if they  don’t have them, they can order easily from Diamond.

General bookstores will have Geary’s book by now as well, the philosophy book and Stan Mack’s fun look at the American Revolution next month.

‘Philosophy: a Discovery in Comics’ ANIMATED

My wonderful brother Maarten, who animated the cover of my upcoming Dutch book for me earlier, has made this all-too-cute animation of the cover of ‘Philosophy: a Discovery in Comics’!

Thank you, Maarten!

The Book is Here!

Today, FedEx delivered a box full of ‘Philosophy: a Discovery in Comics’ to my door!

Boris and me inspecting the impressive box.
Note how cool it is that the title is printed on the side!

Open! Open! Open!
Oh, the suspense!

 

Inspection by the Highest Authority…

 

The book looks soooo good!
And I’m not just saying that because I made it.
The hardcover, the colors – it’s so well executed! Thanks NBM (and China)!!

 

…and how about these cool endsheets?
The Dutch version doesn’t have these.
So Dutch fans: you really NEED this book to complete your collection!

 

See that face?
You can be just as happy if you order your copy today!

“Buy the book. It has me in it. It is good.”
