I feel like I haven’t had time over the past three weeks to scratch my bum, but actually I have — in between being flat-out promoting the Kickstarter campaign for the Tobacco-Stained Mountain Goat graphic novel — which was successful, by the way! — plus doing the 132-page graphic novel itself (I’m doing the art along with words) and starting to do promo for next novel Depth Charging Ice Planet Goth (out in July).
On top of that, this week spring vacation ended and we’ve started a new school year, so I’m back teaching.
OK, so I’ve (almost) come to grips with the fact that we hit our goal — almost. Thanks seriously must go out to everyone concerned, either in making pledges or helping to get word out there. You all positively rock.
The book is pretty much finished, albeit in rough style, so I’m now tweaking the lot, and working with Cocoa on her pages this week.
We’re definitely very early in finishing production (which is great, and mostly inspired by the people mentioned above); I spoke with the printer in Melbourne today, and we’re set to roll with publishing in July as per schedule.
