I am a lousy blogger. It's just who I am. Some people are winter people; some people are summer people (I'm 100% a summer person FYI). Some people are really good at keeping blogs updated, while other people (Cough! Me. Cough!) are slightly... less than stellar.
AKA: Bad. I'm just bad.
But we should all try to improve ourselves, so this is me posting an end of summer 2019 book-related update. I have two cool things to talk about, so buckle up, buttercups!
First, The Supervillain and Me was released in paperback on July 9th! The paperback edition is packed full of bonus content that you can't get in the hardcover, including a Q&A between me and my editor, a list of Red Comet's Superhero Essentials, and a never-before-read bonus scene/epilogue! So if super special bonus features are something that you're a fan of, you can order the paperback from any of the retailers below. If you do decide to purchase a copy, thank you in advance and I promise I love you 3000! ♥
Barnes & Noble
Now for the second fun thing! I did a book signing (my first book signing!) at San Diego Comic-Con a couple months ago, and it was SO. MUCH. FUN!
I can pinpoint the exact moment that I said to myself, "One day I'm going to find a way to go to SDCC." It was in July 2015, a couple months after the first season of The Flash finished airing. It took me four years to make it out there (and I initially never imagined that I'd one day fly out to California to do a book signing!), but I finally did it!
Having a table at the Macmillan booth (which I shared with the lovely Danika Stone!) in such a MASSIVE convention center was so surreal! The entire convention was surreal, to be honest. My first day there I got off the ferry from Coronado, looked around at the tens of thousands of people packing the streets, and thought, "Oh lord, what did I get myself into?" So naturally, I'm hoping to return next year. Fingers crossed!
Outside of signing, I had lunch with a bunch of publishing friends (most of whom I'd been emailing with for over two and a half years before finally meeting in person) and saw seven amazing panels. (The highlight was Sunday's Supernatural and Riverdale panels in Hall H. The energy in that room was infectious!) Pictures never seem to do the experience justice, but here are a few anyway. And maybe this is a step in the right direction for me to commit to keeping this blog somewhat updated. We shall see.
