THREE NICE REVIEWS OF "ROYAL HISTORIAN OF OZ" #1 [Jul. 12th, 2010|10:46 am]

I just posted these to my site.  It's always kind of scary reading reviews, but these are almost entirely very nice.  All are positive.  But I'd better stop reading reviews now before I come across a really mean one and have sudden explosive diarrhea.  And uncontrollable crying.

JULY 14th PRE COMIC-CON PARTY/SIGNING [Jun. 26th, 2010|01:27 pm]

I'm participating in a delightful Pre Comic-Con Signing Party at Metropolis Comics in Bellflower.  It's on Wednesday, July 14th, from 6 to 8pm.  Do join us, won't you?

I'm assuming I'll have plenty of copies of issue #1 of "The Royal Historian of Oz," which is written by lil' ol' me, and illustrated by the very talented Andy Hirsch.

FEB. 26th & 27th SAN DIEGO CONVENTION APPEARANCE! [Jan. 4th, 2010|05:22 pm]

I shall be attending San Diego's longest-running sci-fi & fantasy convention, "ConDor XVII" on February 26th & 27th.  They invited me to attend and speak about "Wonderland," and anybody who knows me personally knows that I have no problem talking. 
Here is more info about it.

I've never been to this particular event before, but I think it's cool that a bunch of sci-fi novelists will be there.  I'm a total fanboy when it comes to sci-fi and horror novelists.

NPR review of Skelebunnies. [Apr. 7th, 2009|08:06 pm]
[Tags|, ]

     Well, I've been WAITING for someone to notice how much like Beatrix Potter I am, especially when it comes to Skelebunnies, and finally NPR has recognized this: www.npr.org/blogs/monkeysee/2009/04/like_beatrix_potter_if_beatrix.html
     I asked my dad if this makes me culturally relevant, and he said it makes me culturally IRREVERENT.  He also says that now that I've been compared to Beatrix, I need to get SLG to make plates and cups and stuff, with Skelebunnies on them.
     MOST HUMILIATING THING I'VE DONE RECENTLY: Played Willy Wonka in a skit at a "pep rally."  The students who wrote the script for it are really cool, though, so how could I say no?  It's not like I VOLUNTEERED or anything, so stop looking at me like that.  These kids are NAUGHTY, though, and they somehow slipped a line by their teacher that went: "Gosh, Mr. Wonka, now that we're done licking all the chocolate off your stuff, your equipment is all covered in our saliva!"  I'm not even kidding.  This was in front of the entire 9th, 10th, 11th, and 12th grade classes.  I haven't been arrested, yet.

I FEEL SPECIAL [Mar. 3rd, 2009|06:18 pm]

Check it out:  www.boingboing.net/2009/03/03/skelebunnies-filthy.html

This is a review of the new "Skelebunnies: Complete Collection" on Boing Boing.  The review is written by Cory Doctorow, which is really cool because he's, like, a famous author and stuff.  The fourth comment under the review is from a former student from the school library I worked in, which made me go, "Awww..."

     In other news, I'm sewing (horribly) a weird doll-thing from some old socks.  So far he has a body, eyes, two arms, four tentacles, and three fingers on one "hand."  I'll post a picture when he is ready. 
     Anthony is also sewing (un-horribly) a cute little creature with a pig nose.
