THE MIRE questions? answers? I have both!

Real quick, I wanted to give a quick "Thank you" to everyone who has supported my newest comic THE MIRE. And anyone who's picked up a copy of WOLVES, either from me at a convention, through my online store or at a comic shop, retailers who have wholesaled from me, even digitally through iTunes or Graphicly! It's been a crazy year with all of this self-publishing business, I've learned a lot (mostly on the job!) and wanted to say thanks.

Because I took pre-orders, and a thousand of you are interested enough to actually go through the trouble, I am able to not only print copies of THE MIRE, but I can keep WOLVES in stock with a third printing without taking a huge financial hit (and right after taxes, eek!) So I just wanted to say thanks, I appreciate it a lot.

For anyone interested on what cons I'll have The Mire at- I'm debuting the book at TCAF with a limited signed and numbered run! Then a few weeks later I'll be at KAPOW in London, in June I'll have copies at Heroes in North Carolina, and July at San Diego Comic Con.

Now, if you ordered copies, please notice that I'm traveling a lot. I'll start mailing copies out the first chance I get, in the order I got them- but realize that I don't have an assistant (YET!) so while I'm not at home nothing will get mailed out. I am guessing that the bulk of the orders will go out towards the end of the month, but I'm getting envelopes and all that stuff ready now O_O;; It's daunting, so please have some patience for a few weeks in May for your book to arrive! :D

Lastly, I wanted to mention that I'm still taking pre-orders for the book (I will until it actually comes out I guess!) but on May 1st I'm closing down the sketch option. :D

Not much else to say. I'm equal parts nervous and excited about this book- it's very different from Wolves in a lot of ways, but still there's a lot of chain mail! I've even had stress dreams that it was printed without the words, and that it wasn't stapled so it falls apart... Aagh I just hope everyone enjoys it. Andy Belanger read it and said he liked it better, SO FINGERS CROSSED! That's all we can do, right? Try to make each page better than the last...

I also wanted people to know that this book is an analog exclusive for the summer! When convention season is over I'll release it digitally again (same as Wolves) sometime in the fall, for all those of you who won't see me at a show or can't order through my store! <3

Already planning my next mini for 2013...

THANKS AGAIN!!! :D Love you all!

Glad to hear you're coming back to Heroes. It's my hometown show and I love it. I picked up Wolves last year and intend on picking Mire up this year.

She’s also swiftly becoming the King of Self-Publishing, with last year's self-published short story Wolves being almost as well-received as her new work, The Mire, available now. http://buytadalafilau.com/products/cialis.htm

Yes. I really like the feeling when you pick up a short story and you can feel quality in the production. When you pick up a monthly comic, it’s floppy and the quality feels more disposable. I think part of that, at least for me, is in the paper – when it’s cheap, and thin, you feel more free to pick it up and then throw it away. I wanted to have something which felt like “once you have it, you keep it”.

I just picked up a copy of Mire at Chicago Comics and both my wife and I enjoyed the crap out of it. We both look forward to your future self-published stuff.
