Exciting news!
Exciting news!

Ok, ok, so my news isn’t nearly as exciting as Dave Kellett’s announcement, but I still think it’s pretty cool.

I just heard back from the printer today, and the first Weregeek book, Weregeek – The Geek Within,Β  isΒ  going to the presses tomorrow morning! Woo!! I should have copies in time for the Calgary Comic Expo in two weeks, which means that if you drop by the booth, you’ll be able to get your hands on a copy even before pre-orders start! And speaking of pre-orders, I will have another post up here soon with pictures of the book and more information on when the pre-orders start very soon.

    Woohoo!! You’re right, Dave’s news has you trumped….but only slightly (but new babies always win, right?). πŸ™‚ Good news Alina! Weregeek is a religious read for me since I discovered it, because it’s just *way* too close to all the people I game with these days. I can look at the characters and say ‘Oh, ther’s Joe, there’s Larry, there’s Becky…OMG, there’s ME!!!’ I’ll be waiting on those pre-orders (since I don’t think a trip to Calgary is in my future). πŸ™‚

    The Geek Within, how appropriate! That’s practically my motto, as a new-ish recruited rp’er and Browncoat! I have severe Weregeek syndrome.

    OMG Thats awesome. I somehow don’t think I’m getting up to Canada (*Prod* You should come to some of the Seattle Con’s) but I’ll be waiting for that pre-order. !00pts for the name BTW.

    We’d love to make it to Emerald City Comic Con, but we couldn’t get a table (they sold out REALLY early this year) and we’re pretty low on the waiting list. I don’t know if we can justify the expense if we can’t sell anything. πŸ™

    Next year for sure, though!

    Love how the cover looks. Actually, that is how I found out about your series. I do courier work for the printing company that did work on it so managed to see the covers in process of being printed. Checked out your site here, love the series!

    Eric & Jen = Thanks you guys!! I totally hear what you’re saying – perhaps unsurprisingly, I also have severe Weregeek syndrome!

    Foalan – Awesome!! I’ll see you there!!

    Tiger – Man, I would -love- to make it out to Emerald City Con this year, but like Layne said, they sell out table space fast!! I’m keeping my fingers crossed for next year!

    RJ – Really?? Wow, that’s great! Glad to hear the cover turned out good – I spent a lot of time nail-biting over how the colors would come out!

    Yeah, it kind of relates to a comment I made on the forum (vaporisor) in the thread about web comic vs print. Had I never seen the cover and thought it was cool (somedays I feel the same way :p) I never would have found out about the strip!
