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!

I was doing something on DA--oh, yeah, looking up Dr. Who art--you know, just browsing, when I saw something you did. And I clicked, and clicked again, and clicked many more times, then found your Glom of Nit stuff and clickawed (that's clicking on account of laughing so hard) but clicked back, then went to your site and, well, long story short, came back here and decided to write you a very public kudos (and a journal of what I've been doing for the last hour or so). Good work, keep it up, I'll pay you somehow, someway, with money, if possible. At the very least, I'll add you to my watchlist. I might've faved something already, and uh, yeah. Well, I am trying to keep this short, so...catch you around.

Well! That worked out perfectly for me! I'm so glad you discovered my work, and have become such an awesome fan! Yes please give me some money some day, I'll trade you some autographed books and such. Stay tuned, and happy reading!

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.
