Yesterday, Today, and Tomorrow

UPDATE: My next book will be announced and available for pre-order on March 20th.  There’s an awesome contest that goes hand-in-hand with the book.  It’s a lot of fun, and I promise it will be worth the (short) wait.

Last weekend I attended and helped out with STAPLE!  This indie comics convention is one of the highlights of my year, a chance to connect with folks I haven’t seen in awhile.  I was a little more quiet this year and even snuck out early.  With almost a year of sobriety in my pocket, I still don’t function in social settings.  Still, I had a good time.  I received theme sketches from Rob Osborne, Ryan Yount, Josh Boulet, and Jason Chalker.  If I had a scanner, I’d share them all with you.  Hmm, I should maybe get a scanner.

Monday hit, and the with it came the 30th allergy season of 2009.  I have no idea what pollen is floating through the air right now, but it has left me with a fever, the sweats, sore muscles, and a lovely assortment of things dropping out of my sinuses.  I’m pretty sure I coughed up a dead mouse this morning.  Man, I love Austin, but this allergy bullshit has got to go.

The next week and a half will be spent preparing for the book announcement. I wish I could tell you more about it, but I’m under an oath of secrecy.  I suppose I could give you a hint, though.

So there you go.  I’ll see you all soon.
