Two Helpings of Grateful

Happy Friday my Bloggy Friends!

I want to say a big THANK YOU to everyone who has blogged, reposted, facebooked, tweeted, used the arcane practice of speaking, or otherwise spread the word about my little Graphic Novel these past few weeks. Really it makes such a difference and I thank you all.

Word-of-mouth seems to be an intensely important ingredient in a books journey into the hands of readers. When someone spreads the word about a book they like, especially a little-known book from a relatively unknown author, it increases the likelihood that more books like it will appear in the world.

Here are links to just a couple blog reviews that I found lately:

-From a ten-year-old named ben who blogs about books.

-from a blog called Charlottes Library.

-From's Geek Dad blog.

And now, the Travels: I will be doing a local signing at Main Street Books in Front Royal next Saturday, February 19th. And on Thursday the 17th, from 10am to 1pm I will be talking comics and signing at Politics and Prose in DC. I'll be doing more in April, and I'll try to post those dates soon.

I wish P&P didn't have all their kidlit signings on Thursday mornings. I have to be at my day job. Please leave an ample supply of signed copies, so I can pick one up on Friday. I am so looking forward to this book!

Cough, cough, (Lunch Break!) cough...

No worries, Jeanie. They told me to be prepared to stay afterward to sign a big stack for the store.
