Three days left until STAPLE! and the official start of my convention season.Â True, I don’t have a big convention season.Â I don’t know how I’d ever afford one.Â Truth be told, I don’t know how much longer I’ll be able to do STAPLE!Â IÂ inch farther away from comics each and every day.Â I guess we’ll see, but I know I don’t want to be that guy still trying to sell the same three graphic novels four years from now.
Tonight, I have to finish putting together the “A Team-Building Exercise” chaps.Â I hate to put things off to the last minute like that, but a family emergency has left meÂ a little aimlessÂ for the last month.Â Between that and working feverishly on rewrites for several projects, I’ve barely kept myself from spinning off into orbit.
With any luck, STAPLE! will change that and I’ll feel some return to normalcy.Â Even if it doesn’t, I have to hit the ground running.Â It’s impact, and another stretch of conventions follows along behind it.
Here we go.
