Long Overdue

Okay, it's been something like four or five months since a blog post and I've been super bad about updating releases and events, but partially that's because of waiting for details, and partially because I've been too busy making comics, including finishing a new Star Wars book and working on my new middle grade series. Anyway, I've also got a snazzy new website redesign where I'll try to update s Read more of this blog post »
