So Rich, So Famous, So…Me

So Rich, So Famous, So…Me

I’m finally back from the RT Booklovers Convention in Atlanta where I had so much fun that it should’ve been illegal. (But fortunately wasn’t!)

I premiered today’s comic at the con where it was a big hit with many of the authors (surprise) who visited my sales table. I’ll post photos from the con in a few days. Luckily, most of ’em aren’t too incriminating!
