I couldn't be more happy to have been involved and I'm thrilled that I get to join the ranks of Lynne and Sigrid's other books, Chicks Dig Time Lords and Whedonistas.
The second book I was honored to be a part of, has already been in stores for a few weeks now, Womanthology from IDW Publishing! You've heard about the Kickstarter sensation, well it's finally a reality. Check out the complete contributor list on the Womanthology blog.
It's completely surreal, not just to have my first ever comic in print (Dream Weaver), but to have it in print alongside women I truly admire and have been fans of for years. And for those who've read my story and are wondering, yes, it's part of a much larger story. I hope I get to tell it some day.
For anyone who's already got their copies - THANK YOU!! And for anyone who's going to go buy them now at the links I've provided - THANK YOU!! And another big THANK YOU for all your continued support. When I started this blog back in 2008, I had no idea this is where I'd end up but I am very glad to be here. Now, where do I go next?
