Pics from New York Comic Con

I leave for the Waterworld Mermaid Writing Retreat in Ocean City, MD tomorrow — I am GOING TO FINISH THIS NOVEL REVISION by next week, no ifs, ands, or buts. (Unless I need them in a paragraph.)

But I’ve come up for air after packing (…again…) to post my lovely pics from NYCC. As always, I wish there were more¬† (and I wish there were more of me!) but Janet and I were happily trapped behind a very busy table in Artists Alley the entire weekend. I’m actually shocked I captured this many great costumes.

Thanks to everyone who stopped by!

My NY Comic Con Schedule

Stopping square in the middle of the HERO novel edit to go to NY today. NY Comic Con, here I come!

If you’ve downloaded the NYCC app (which is a smart thing to do), I’m not actually listed. BUT YOU ALL KNOW WHERE TO FIND ME: At Janet Lee’s table in Artist Alley!

I will be there for the duration of the convention — that’s right: Thursday – Sunday. Please come by and see me!

Janet and I also have special WONDERLAND ALPHABET signings at the Archaia Entertainment booth (Exhibitor 1520) at the following times:

Fri, 10/12
12-1pm (with Janet Lee), Table 1

Sat, 10/13
4-5pm (with Janet Lee), Table 1

Sun, 10/14
2-3pm (with Janet Lee), Table 1

Only WONDERLAND ALPHABET will be available during those times, but if you come by Artists Alley, I’ll have ENCHANTED and tons of ALPHAOOPS: H IS FOR HALLOWEEN. (‘Tis the season!)

Janet and I will also be selling THE COMPLETE SET OF ALPHABET PRINTS from WONDERLAND ALPHABET, which has never before been available.

And…as always…THERE WILL BE SWAG.

Why wouldn’t you stop by? See you fellow geeks there! xox

Wonderland: My Favorite Bit

Where do you go to find decent fiction to read? When I’ve asked people this question lately, their answer is most often John Scalzi’s “The Big Idea.”

In the footsteps of that fabulous Idea, my dear friend Mary Robinette Kowal has launched a feature on her blog called “My Favorite Bit.” In lieu of asking authors the age-old question “Where do you get your ideas?”, Mary asks, “What was your favorite thing about writing the book you just had released?”

You’ll be surprised at the answers.

I’m honored today to be a guest on Mary’s blog, speaking about “My Favorite Bit” of The Wonderland Alphabet: Alice’s Adventures Through the ABCs and What She Found There. Is my favorite bit the same as yours? I bet it isn’t.

The Wonderland Alphabet (flip preview)

The sneakiest preview of The Wonderland Alphabet you’ll ever get! How cute is this book?!?

Still working on getting a definite date when this will be out — I know Amazon has had a different release date every other day (now it says June 19th), but who trusts Amazon anymore? They don’t even have the proper cover image.

I can tell you that Archaia has the book (or they couldn’t have made this video!) and it will be shipping to stores very, very soon. Fingers crossed that it shows up while I’m on book tour!

The Secret’s Out!

Yes, sirree — I have TWO books coming out this year. Right around the same time Enchanted releases, THE WONDERLAND ALPHABET: Alice’s Adventures through the ABCs and What She Found There will hit bookstores and comic book shops all around the world.

I can’t tell you how excited I am to finally talk about this project! It’s not the first collaboration I’ve done with my dear friend Janet K. Lee, but it’s the first to be released by a major publisher (Archaia), and the first since Janet & Jim’s Eisner award win last year for Return of the Dapper Men!

The format is an affordable (less than $12!), oversized board book that will appeal to both adults and children alike. We’ve honored each letter of the alphabet (in order this time) by gracing it with a rhyming verse about a particular element from Alice in Wonderland and/or Alice’s Adventures Through The Looking Glass (and What She Found There).

I could tell you more about the origin of this very special project, but why don’t you read about it from Janet herself? She sprung the news to Comic Book Resources in this exclusive interview. You can also get a sneak peek at several of the gorgeous pages.

Fair warning — I’m telling you right now that this book is going to sell out its first printing almost immediately, so be sure to preorder your copy now.¬† (The cover for the book is pictured here — the one on Amazon was just a placeholder. They’re working on fixing that.)

I can’t tell you how much I’m looking forward to going on book tour and signing TWO BOOKS instead of one!!!

I am the luckiest princess in the world, I tell you. *happy dance*

(Oh, yeah. Me and the alphabet…we’re like *this.*)
