I've pretty much finished moving and gotten all my printing/shipping supplies unpacked, so my store is back up (though a bit sparse). I wanted to add some new prints and figured I should just ask to see what folks might want! I've done a bunch of new dresses lately so maybe some of those? If there are any other products folks might like to see I'm open to suggestions, too! I do not really have the space/energy to stock tshirts, though. Those things are tricky.

Books and cons

Anya's Ghost has sold through its first printing! Unfortunately that means it's been hard for people to find, for which I apologize. The good news is the second printing is due this month so Amazon should start sending out copies really soon. The hardcover is being reprinted too. In the meantime I've got 19 copies of the softcover that I'm selling signed, for people who can't make it to shows or need a book NOW NOW NOW. They're up now in my shop.

In other book news, Anya got its fifth starred review in the School Library Journal, which is awesome. The other four are in BCCB, Booklist, the Horn Book and Kirkus. The critical response has been incredibly positive and I am extremely grateful to everyone who's taken the time to post a review to their blog or recommended it on twitter. It makes my day every time I hear that somebody read it all in one sitting, or that someone's daughter stayed up all night reading it. The best, you guys. That is what you are.

San Diego Comic Con is coming up and I'm going to be braving the crowds Friday through Sunday! I've got a few signings and things so I thought I'd mention them here:

Friday July 22nd

  • 2:00pm signing at the First Second booth #1323

Saturday July 23rd

  • 12:30-1:30 Diversity in Young Adult Work Panel room TBA
  • 2:00 -3:00 signing in Autograph Area #AA2
  • 3:00pm signing at First Second booth #1323

Sunday July 24th

  • 10:00-11:00 Teen Comics Workshop with Dave Roman, Gene Yang and Thien Pham room TBA

Hope to see you there!


Just wanted to say that as of this weekend the shop is live! You can buy pretty prints and drawthisdress postcard sets and minicomics. And I will mail them to you. If there is something you'd really like to see as a print let me know, perhaps I will offer it. I'm including a little bird-hat-lady miniprint with each order in honor me finding a whole bunch of little bird-hat-lady miniprints I'd forgotten about. Hooray!
