I'm jumping back to 1997 and starting up an email newsletter.
I love social media, but sometimes the algorithms of the facebooks of the world -- or the churn of the twitters -- has obscured my missives to folks who want to know when work is coming, or where I'll be appearing... I can't tell you how many times I've heard "this miniseries is happening? When is it coming out?" after a month of promoting.
Things fall through the cracks.
I don't plan on giving up social media by any means, but I do want folks who are interested in me and my work to not miss out on stuff... and it's a busy world; missing out is easy.
Thus the list.
How often will it be coming out? That'll change on my workload. Expect it no less than once a month, and no more than once a week. I don't want to inundate anyone.
What will it include? Release dates, preorder numbers, interviews (links to some asking me questions, and me interviewing others), signing and convention appearances, and the occasional thoughts on pop culture (which is where I make my living!)
Again, I don't want to inundate anyone.
So look to this space (and all the old usual spots, too) for news on books, comics, appearances, a patreon, and more.
SPEAKING OF BOOKS...
Up for preorder right now is the Ghostbusters annual 2018!

Here's the preorder code you'll need to bring to any shop -- brick and mortar or online -- to get the right comic:
And please, folks, if you have a pull list or order at a comic shop, pick up your books and pay for them! These shops operate on razor-thin margins, and that can mean a LOT.
Coincidentally, you've just read my first newsletter. If you'd like to sign up for more, just put your email into the sign up form to the right!
That said, I'm off to enjoy me some Christmas. I hope everyone has the best possible new year in front of them; I'll talk to you all in January 2018!
