Yes, I’m finally uploading some new content to the site. There were some, eh, technical difficulties preventing me from doing so, but I think they’ve been sorted out now. (Oh, technology, you are such a fickle helper.) If you’re subscribed to the RSS feed, I apologize for any spamming that may have occurred as I edited and deleted and futzed and posted again. Anyway, on to the new goods. Just click the images to embiggen.
I just handed Book People a bunch of consignment copies of Transposes, so you should now be able to roll on into the store and buy yourself a copy (if you’re in Austin, that is). You’ll find it shelved with graphic novels, and possibly also LGBT studies, but probably graphic novels is your best bet. So, if you have a hankerin’ to support indie bookstores and indie authors, go throw some money at them!
As I mentioned a few posts ago, I drew up an all-new Politically InQueerect strip for Rocksalt Magazine, and it’s now available online for your reading pleasure. I will eventually make the strip available here with all the other PIQue stuff, but if you cannot wait and must have it now, point your cursors and your eyeballs at that link.
At the moment I’m working on a short story for Robert Kirby’s new anthology, QU33R, which he talks about in a bit more detail on his blog. The story will be exclusive to the anthology, but over the next few weeks I’ll be posting some concept art and character designs here for your edification. More on that soon!
I was recently interviewed on Houston radio station KPFT’s Queer Voices program. We chatted about comics in general and Transposes in particular. It’s up on their website (the December 17 show) for the next couple of weeks; after that, I guess I have to figure out how to host it on here somehow. Anyway, you’ll find me right around the 53:28 mark.
Have you read and enjoyed Transposes? Please consider taking a moment to write a review on Goodreads, Amazon, or iTunes (or anywhere else, really!). It doesn’t have to be long or involved. “Loved it!” or “Awesome” is fine. Though longer is fine, too. :) But every little bit helps, and since most of the promotion of this book is going to be word-of-mouth, it’s all gonna be little bits coalescing. Here are some links for ya:
Meanwhile, as you can see over there on the right, I am currently working away on a new Politically InQueerect strip for Rocksalt Magazine. I’ll post the finished comic here once it has seen publication, but know that it is on the way! My goal for 2013 is to get back to PIQue. I would like to finish issue #3, which was put on hold while I worked on Transposes. I have some new scripts kicking around that I’d like to draw up. And, once I get enough stuff together, I want to put together a volume of collected Politically InQueerect material. It’s only ever seen the light of day online and in photocopied minicomics, so it’s high time PIQue got the proper book treatment. So, with any luck, I will get rolling on regular PIQue updates for 2013, just like a proper webcomic. More deets to come as things solidify.
Finally, the sad news. Domy Books (or their Austin location, at least) is bringing their consignment program to an end, so that means they won’t be able to stock Transposes anymore. It’ll be there up through about Dec. 23-ish, so if you’re in Austin and want to buy a copy from a local retailer, hie thee hence in the next couple of weeks.
Yes indeed, it is Bent-Con time. The show starts tomorrow, Nov. 30, and runs through Dec. 2. It’s all queer comics and media, all the time. How can you resist? If you’re in southern California this weekend, please drop by.
I’ll be hanging out at the Northwest Press booth to sign copies of Transposes, and I’ll have my original pages with me just in case you were interested in purchasing such a thing (ahem-hem). I also have a few pieces for sale in the Bent-Con art show, including my Bentling illustration here (of course I did the skull Bentling … how could I not?).
So yes. This weekend. Burbank, CA (a stone’s throw from Los Angeles). Queer comics and media. Check the Bent-Con website for further deets. Hope to see you there!
What’s that? You want maybe to win a copy of Transposes? Lucky you, we’re having a giveaway of the book on Goodreads. Just click on through to sign up for a chance to win! You can sign up now through December 2, so get clickin’.
If you already have a copy, this is a good opportunity to score a gift for someone else (or, who knows? maybe you just need two copies; I don’t know what it is you get up to when I’m not around).
Maybe while you’re there you might add it to your to-read list, or write a review? Think on it.
The weekend of November 30 – December 2, 2012 you will find me in Burbank, CA at Bent-Con! This is a convention dedicated entirely to queer comics and media. How can you resist?
In addition to appearing at the Northwest Press booth to promote Transposes, I’ll also have several pieces for sale in the art show, and I have at least one panel appearance (deets to come later). If you’re going to be in southern California, you really should check it out!
