We've got a little under 36 hours to go on the Fairy Tales I Just Made Up kickstarter. We are so close! If you enjoy my sense of humor at all, you NEED a copy of this book! So why don't you pledge a couple dollars, and preorder your very own copy?…

Just look at all this cool bonus swag that's available!

Ooooh my gosh, so you're that person!
A while ago (on free comic book day) a local comic book store was giving out comics, and I just happened to pick up one with a short comic of yours (it had a bunch of little comic snippets)! Graah, I loved it so much! I forgot exactly what went on, but I remember one of the characters had a shirt that kept having a different 'nerdy' reference on each scene, and I giggled when it said 42.

You rock, man! uou

That is the person that I am!

So glad you found me! I've got a bunch of free comics here on DA, and I've also written 6 different books, which you should totally buy. More info on my site> [link]

Glad you like my nerdy jokes! I do rock, it's true.

I love your books! I read as many of them as i could when i first saw them :D And then, years later, i see a comic in a discworld group on deviantART, and say, 'hey, i recognize that style!' So yeah. You're awesome. End of story. (Anything that could entertain 7 year old me is awesome :worship:)

Yay! Glad you found me! I keep putting books out, there's probably a bunch you haven't seen yet. When did you become a discworld fan? How old are you now? I also do some official graphic design for Terry Pratchett these days too.
