One thing I’ve always been bad about is promoting the projects I’m working on, which is part of the reason I started this blog. A normal cartoonist will create something, then promote it, then start their next project. I should do that, but I don’t. I’d rather move onto my next thing.
Anyway, when I ended the monthly series and moved onto original graphic novels, I was determined to promote the new books and attract a larger audience. I didn’t really have a plan for this, but I put off thinking about it for as long as I could. But now that ‘Big City Secrets’ is just a few weeks away of being published, I had better start promoting it and getting it out there.
So I have two upcoming…things in the next couple weeks.
First up is I’ll be a guest on ‘The Geek Report’, a podcast featuring independent cartoonists. ‘The Geek Report’ is a very cool show and I’m thrilled to be on it. There’s been lots of great guests and I’m flattered to be on it.
On March 12th I’ll be signing books and doing a comic workshop at Reading Frenzy in Zimmerman, MN. ‘Big City Secrets’ will not be available, but I’ll have copies of the ‘Uptown Girl’ trades as well as copies of Britt Aamodt’s book ‘Superheroes, Strip Artists and Talking Animals’ . The event starts at 1pm.
I also haven’t decided when ‘Big City Secrets’ will be released. I am considering a book release party in April or simply just having the book debut at SpringCon in May. Any thoughts?
