UPDATE: My next book will be announced and available for pre-order on March 20th.Â There’s an awesome contest that goes hand-in-hand with the book.Â 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!Â This indie comics convention is one of the highlights of my year, a chance to connect with folks I haven’t seen in awhile.Â I was a little more quiet this year and even snuck out early.Â With almost a year of sobriety in my pocket, I still don’t function in social settings.Â Still, I had a good time.Â I received theme sketches from Rob Osborne, Ryan Yount, Josh Boulet, and Jason Chalker.Â If I had a scanner, I’d share them all with you.Â Hmm, I should maybe get a scanner.
Monday hit, and the with it came the 30th allergy season of 2009.Â 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.Â I’m pretty sure I coughed up a dead mouse this morning.Â 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.Â I suppose I could give you a hint, though.
So there you go.Â I’ll see you all soon.
