Postcards from the E

UPDATE:

I filled up all of the postcards I had handy and sent them out. Thanks everyone!

There's been a lot of stress in 2016, from 01/01 straight down the line. I don't need to tell you; you were there. There's been a lot of crazy from all corners of the world.

I can't fix that; not fear, or dissatisfaction.

I can only spread little bits of joy. That's what's in my power.

(I admit to you that that may not be much -- but, if I can provide a few seconds' smile, I'm gonna do just that.)

So, then! I have a small box of blank postcards. Couple dozen, maybe more. They're gonna get sketched on and sent out to whoever asks.

Send me an address (and, if you like, a fictional character you'd like a sketch of -- otherwise I'll just totally improvise) and I'll send you a postcard, up until I run out. For free.

That's it. That's all there is to it.

If you'd like one (and just one!) please email me at:

erikburnham (at) mail (dot) com

Needless to say (though I will anyway) your address is safe with me and will be deleted as soon as I jot it on the postcard.

Let's rev towards optimism -- and hey, if you do get a card, pay the joy or kindness forward a little, if you can! That's what we need right now!

Thanks,
--Erik

All the details can be found at CBR (just click here for that!)

Amy has a crazy KISS saga in store for you guys -- be sure to pick up KISS #1 this month and you'll see just how crazy!

About Tobin's Spirit Guide and About NYCC

The bad news is I won't be attending NYCC this year as I'd hoped. (I wasn't tabling - I was just going to wander, as I do during SDCC... but things just didn't come together.)

This is my second attempt to get to NYC this year; both fell through. That's the universe for you! One day I'll revisit that city.

In better news -- Tobin's Spirit Guide. Some of you have noticed it's currently down/only available from 3rd party vendors on Amazon. WELL! That's because the first run has sold out. It's going back to press! MORE COMING SOON!

Thank you to you amazing Ghostheads for the success of the book, and for those who haven't gotten one yet, more coming soon!!
