@$$hole!: Jess and Trevor Forever 10

 In web comics

My Site


Hey gang, I hope you all had a great new years!

My book signing for Indy Comic Book Week was my most successful of all of my appearances so far. In the 4 hours that I was signing I sold more books than I did at the book’s premiere! Plus, I met some awesome fans – new and old. It was a great time, and I will certainly be doing more signings in the near future.

In case you didn’t know, I’m being interviewed by TGT Webcomics on January 12 at 8pm central time. If you tune in live, you can ask questions either by calling in or by posting them in the talkshoe chat. The show requires that I give away a spoiler, so perhaps something juicy will be revealed! Be sure to check it out.

I’m putting together my convention schedule for the year, and will be announcing that soon enough. I may be hitting a convention every month, especially in the mid-west region.

Alright, I’m off to get through this week of work (the week after holidays is also very stressful, but I’m hoping that it’ll only be crazy for a week…two at the most). See you all Friday!

    I’m enjoying the swerve and you guys were awfully busy shooting this. Amanda and Jess’s facial expressions are the best.

    Glad to hear you did so well at the store signings. It’s encouraging to see the B&M stores bringing in a good crowd for the goods. And best of all, it’s good to be paid! 😛

    Alan: We spent the first full day (and then some) shooting from sun up to sun down. It was a rigorous schedule, and we didn’t get everything that we wanted, but Amanda and Jess were a joy to work with and I look forward to working with them again soon.

    How did you do for Indy Comic Book Week? Brainstorm asked me to come in and sign and they also were the only store that offered to invoice me, versus the other stores who wanted consignment. I picked Brainstorm above the rest because they were going to pay and were willing to take the risk.

    Consignment is okay if they give better terms like only getting 35-40% discount, which is probably a bigger deal with a higher price point. I didn’t do anything in-person for Indy Comic Week, but I did invoice to TFAW and The Source and even got paid by the Source already so that was awesome. 10 graphic novels between two stores isn’t bad in my book.
    The Chicago stores never got back to me. They were hesitant to take on a graphic novel and then fell off. I’ll probably still try to give them a go when I print #2 and reorder #1.

    Brainstorm sounds like a good in for you now that you’ve signed for them. They’ll probably be happy to have you come back which is always a good thing.

    Yeah, they friended me on facebook. They’re a fun bunch, and even gave me homemade chocolate candies while I was in there. They had SCRUBS on in the background the whole time, which I’ve not watched all the way through before. Pretty funny show.

    I don’t accept less than 50% from consignment, since that’s cost for me on this book. I consider those a promotional expense, just getting my name / book out there. At least I’m not losing money. Some places, though, will offer you 60% so I can make a little money, which is nice.

    The only other Chicago store participating didn’t get back to me either, but they’re right down the road from me so I walked in and signed the consignment deal. Haven’t followed up yet to see how well the books did, but I plan to check this weekend. They have a nice store.
