$6 Paperback Rapunzels are back!

I noticed there weren't a lot of book-related deals on ol' Black Friday this year. Amazon--which began life as a book-seller, had only one book in their "Black Friday Lightening Deals" hootenanny. Wait, no they also had the "Twilight Collection" in there. So two book deals.

That said, they've put up the paperback of RAPUNZEL'S REVENGE for $6 again. If you remember, they did this a few months back and it didn't last long. So if you are the rare blog reader that DOESN'T have a Rapunzel, this is your chance. The paperback, which is very nice (but not nearly as awesome as the hardcover) usually retails for $15. So buy a copy for a friend--just in time for Calamity Jack, which should be creeping into stores in the next three weeks.

By the way, I'll do a custom drawing, say a blog banner or an avatar, for the first person to send me a photo of Calamity Jack on sale in a bookstore.

{UPDATE! This Thanksgiving Weekend Deal is OVER! I hope everyone who wanted one got one! THEY ARE SOLD OUT!}

The Greatest Book of ALL TIME


The NaNoMonster seemed to have a little too much time on his hands, so I've put him to work doing some shameless advertising. Click on my link to the right to see my "DINOSAURS a Stereobook." It's a book that makes dinosaur noises. Something not a single one of the great works of fiction can claim. Chew on that Evelyn Waugh. Do YOU have a book that makes dinosaur noises?

Side note, the publisher on this book didn't put my name on the cover. This happens a lot more with non-fiction titles, I've noticed. Somehow, scientific illustrations are considered a given, like photography. In any case, when your name's not on the cover it means you can write a glowing Amazon review of the book you worked on. I just did that. 5 stars.

So, as you are doing your holiday shopping this year. Please consider this; can your book collection be complete if it doesn't include a single volume that makes dinosaur noises?

I didn't think so.

The NaNoWriMo Monster Has Taken Over!

It's true! He came sixteen days ago and started messing with the blog! The goofball "On the Floor" dream comic from last week was all his fault.

He's the National Novel Writing Month Monster! And he's consuming massive amounts of creativity! He barely leaves anything for the blog.

Thankfully, the month is halfway over and so is my novel (well, graphic novel script. More on that later...way later.)

I know you are all patiently waiting for Part 2 of the Space Weed. There was also another interview planned (I can't say who yet, somebody awesome though) but everything's on hold. We're gonna have to get through the rest of the month with this NaNoWriMo Monster in the room.

HE'S TAKEN OVER!!!!

Yellowbelly and Dean 10--THE END


I wish I could add scary music to the last two panels. It would go like this: First Plum Panel-creepy tones, strings, slowly building, eerie. Last Plum Panel-DUH-duh-DUUUUH!

Yellowbelly and Dean 8


This awesome pumpkin was carved by master Jack-O-Lanternist, Laura Middleton. Many of you may remember last year's fabulous Rapunzle Pumpkin, which I call "The Rapumpkin."
