Book book book!

athena-default

So! I have my advance copy of the Family Man book!

(You can see this video at its home on Flickr here.)

Very exciting! It would be even more so, if I weren’t so tired that I can barely keep my head up. As I warned might happen, I have passed the “not healthy to try to post this week’s page on time” line. It’ll be up sometime this weekend, and look all the better for it.

Ugh, seriously, LJ readers:  I am completely on fumes, here.  I worried so hard about this book that I think I may have popped a kidney.  It looks great, and all the other cool stuff packaged along with the limited edition pre-orders is going to look great, too.  If keeping on top of all (and planning for the San Diego Comic-Con) that were all I were doing right now, I’d still be pooped – but the last two weekends on the road for family stuff, and the several freelance engagements I’m holding down on top of it all, have wiped me out.

So what I’m saying here is that cloning technology is starting to look pretty good.

It looks amazing; I am stupidly excited to get my copy, footnotes and all. Hooray for things in book form!

Now put aside a couple of stem cells and get some sleep.

Take care of yourself first - no matter how much I ache to have more story, I'd rather have you be healthy.

And the book looks so exciting!!

Ah! Beautiful, beautiful book! And footnotes! ~bounces with glee~

As for cloning...~headshake~ They always do that thing where they want to be their own people with their own agendas. Not worth it. So much better just to sleep when you can.

I've been holding off on buying the book till I get a chance to buy it from you personally... Then I get to look deep into your eyes and tell you how awesome it is (its going to be awkward).

And I will buy the shiny new Meek printing from you, and we shall have an AWKWARD-OFF. It will be epic.

EPIC.

~Points. Flails.~ You're married to Shaenon K. Garrity!

Can you hug her for me and tell her a random internet person told you to tell her that she's AWESOME? (And that Smithson is very much missed.) Your comic is great too, but, sadly, Nixons are nowhere near as awesome as gerbils. Speaking of, where one could adopt an army of them? Gerbils, not Nixons, that is.

(Damn, all of you webcartoonist people seem to be interconnected, it's somehow a bit unsettling.)

So I feel less like I'm spamming: Feel better Dylan, and the book looks fantastic. If you're ever on the east coast I'll try to track you down and buy it from you.

ANYBODY is welcome to freak out about Shaenon here. I am a big fan, myself.

I'll be on the East Coast twice this year - for the Small Press Expo in Bethesda MD (mid-September), and the Webcomics Weekend in Easthampton MA (early November). Geez, gotta buy those plane tickets...

Why cloning?
You are too awesome. Inimitable. Don't worry, it's gonna be great. The people will buy your book and be awestruck and love it to pieces and you will be showered with well-deserved accolades and it will be great! Everything is going to pay off and you'll be glad you did it!

Little man, you've had a busy day.
So much excitement for you and your book that will one day soon be in my hot little hands!

Re: Now officially Monday...
Sadly no. :(

I spent the weekend banging together more stuff in advance of the first wave of books coming in and, also, giving myself a really nasty blister on my drawing hand. I'm giving it a few days to heal up before I start rubbing it on my stylus pen again!

...okay, that might've been TMI. Heh!

Looks lovely!

See you in San Diego, mayhaps.

So, out of curiosity - who did you go through to get such a fine printed book? I am looking to get a color-page children's book printed myself, but am not sure who would be best to do that through...
