And So, 2018...

It's been awhile since I've written a blog post on here! A lot has happened since ... geez, April 2016.

I have two books out in stores now!

Dead Weight: Murder at Camp Bloom is a YA comedy/murder mystery set at a fat camp I co-wrote with my dear friend Terry and illustrated by the awesome Matthew Seely. I'm super proud of it!

The Cardboard Kingdom is a middle grade graphic novel illustrated and orchestrated by the very talented Chad Sell and co-written by a group of about ten of us. We each created a character--mine's that little girl with a crown and a snake aka The Animal Queen--and they all live in the same neighborhood where they play, learn, fight, make up and everything you do as a kid. It's been doing extremely well and it's a great feeling that people are connecting with it. 

Other than that, I've been making con appearances. I was up at Emerald City premiering Dead Weight this year, went to a con in Juneau, TCAF and VanCaf. I'll be at Rose City in a couple of weeks, where you can pick up either book or the anthology I co-edited with Kel McDonald, Can I Pet Your Werewolf, full of sweet, romantic, funny, non-horror werewolf stories. Come say hi!

I am working on another project for Oni that I can't talk about yet so look forward to that announcement when I make it. Also, there are other things in the work that are still quite nebulous but hopefully I'll have more news on those things soon.

Thanks all of you for supporting me through this haphazard thing called being a writer. I'm doing my best to bring some quality work to you!

Rose City Comic Con 2015

Oh, hey. So, I've been mysteriously absent and I'm well aware of that. I've spent the last month addicted to genealogy completely out of nowhere. It's been weird and amazing and you can see some of what I've found on my twitter under the hashtag mollyology. I'm planning to write more about it soon so look out for that. 

But this past weekend was Rose City Comic Con in my own hometown of Portland, Oregon! Which, of course, meant that I was incredibly lazy, slept in most mornings and made my way over for the last few hours of each day. It was great fun, full of awesome people selling great stuff and some fun panels. I spent time with really cool people and I honestly had a great time and discovered some great new art I want to share with you.

I found these two lovely ladies at a booth together and wanted to buy all their things but managed to restrain myself to these two. Adorable little shamrock girl is by Noel Clark and the girl in the window is by Elle Wyant. Both are my favorites and I want more art from both of these women.

I was walking quickly past Sara Talmadge's booth on my way somewhere and saw this print out of the corner of my eye and made a mental point of 'I'm coming back for that.' And then I did because how can you not need this? You do. You do need this.

I came to RCCC with a mission: buy DJ Corgi from my friend Mel. She has a whole set of DJ animals. You want them. Oh, do you want them.

Guess who I couldn't resist? It was The Gorgonist. I want ALL the things and I kind of bought them? All of her stuff is LOVELY and I adore her series of illustrated book covers (obviously) and look at little astronomy witch! And X FILES. I am a complex human being who wants all the variety of prints and this was my favorite thing and I love them all.

Rose City was great this year and I'm very very happy I went. Parties were silly, friends were lovely, art was great, new people were nice and friendly and it was pretty darn great.
