Wow, 2017 is nearly over, kinda can’t believe it. Whew, what a year. My last event for this year is in Olympia, Washington at the Olympia Timberland Library. The event starts at 1pm, and I’ll be doing a presentation about my work and how I make comics along side comics superstar Kazu Kibuishi, creator of the Amulet series. For more info, check out the Facebook event page here. Hope to see some friendly faces in Washington! :)

Between Two Worlds: Adventure Stories
Wembly Wordsmith Storytorium (in Children’s Alley)
What do you get when you cross a magical pashmina, a book of fanciful stories about real treasures, fairy-tale case files, supernatural abilities, and real-life problems? Find out in these stories of magic, adventure, and super-ness with Nidhi Chanani’s Pashmina, Peter Lerangis’ Max Tilt: Fire the Depths, Michael Buckley’s The Sisters Grimm series, and Faith Erin Hicks’ The Adventures of Superhero Girl. Further info here.

Old Heroes, New Powers
MAGIC Screening Room (Building 8, 1st floor)
As superheroes surge from the standard avenues of comic stores and blockbuster theaters onto the small screen and bookstore shelf, there’s a new hunger for fresh perspectives on what makes heroes super. Faith Erin Hicks (The Adventures of Superhero Girl), Barry Lyga (The Flash: Hocus Pocus) and Jo Whittemore (Supergirl: Age of Atlantis) discuss what they’re doing to deliver that! Moderated by Joan Hilty. More info here.
There will be the opportunity to purchase books and get them signed after each panel. You’re also welcome to bring copies of my books that you already own for signing. Hope to see you there!
Hi everyone. To make a long story very short, until recently I haven’t been getting messages through my website’s contact form. I am getting them now, there’s nothing actually wrong with the contact form, I had just assumed that the messages sent through it went to my email, and they don’t. They’re stored on my website. Over the past few years I’ve noticed email correspondence dropping off significantly, which I took as a sign that people would rather contact me through twitter or instagram, rather than sending an email. But then I discovered the 600+ unread messages stored in the admin section of my website and oh, the horror. Readers, librarians and potential clients had been trying to get in touch, I just hadn’t been aware. I’m going to do my best to go through the messages sent in the last year and give them a response, but if you’ve sent me something in the last couple years through my website contact form, it’s likely I didn’t see it (until now). I feel pretty terrible about the situation, as a lot of these messages are nice notes about my comics or invitations to speak, and I’m sorry if you sent me something that was important and didn’t get a response. Feel free to either send a message through the contact form (I know how to find those messages now) or email me.
Also, I have two events coming up this year. I’m a guest at the Miami Book Fair on November 17th-18th and I’ll be at the comic store Danger Room Comics (in Olympia, WA) on December 2nd for their event Kids Love Comics. I’ll post more info about those events when it gets closer to those dates.
