Be an Expert!

Hey, Amateur! will feature single page comics stories by a wide variety of cartoonists in a hardcover book. Each story gives instructions in nine panels on how to do something. Those "somethings" range widely, from "how to survive a bear attack" to "spot a galaxy." Mine will explain how to "do an en dehors pirouette."

The Kickstarter campaign to crowdfund Hey, Amateur! is running now, with only a few days left to go. Check out the campaign here, and if this quirky and fascinating project grabs your interest, please become a backer. Hey, Amateur! can't happen without you.

Revisiting Royal Book

Clover Press will publish a new edition of The Royal Book of Oz by Ruth Plumly Thompson, the first book in the Oz series to be written after the death of series creator L. Frank Baum. This brand new edition will feature brand new illustrations by Sara Richard. It will also contain an afterword by me.

My afterword discusses how Thompson got the job as successor to L. Frank Baum and the publisher's ruse to ease the transition to the new "Royal Historian of Oz."

A Kickstarter Campaign is currently running to crowdfund Clover Press's publication of The Royal Book of Oz. Click here to access it and contribute. A lot of extras are available, depending on your contribution level.
