Well! It's been more than six months since my last journal, saying I was moving to Oregon. Now it's time for an update saying I'm moving back to California. Michelle and I are having a baby! A little pumpkin in October.
Living abroad had always been a temporary arrangement, but I think we're gonna end up cutting it shorter than expected because of the NEW BIG LIFE CHANGE. I am excited and nervous and distracted and hungry, it's been a busy time.
I'm also giving a keynote address next week at LITJAM 2014 in Susanville California, so expect an empassioned speech from me on the subject of Following Your Dreams in a few weeks time!
The other big news is that FAIRY TALES I JUST MADE UP, an awesome collection of Snarky Bedtime Stories For Weirdo Children I've been percolating on for a looooooong time is finally finished, and is coming out JUNE 15th! I'll have some more sample chapters and videos, and even an art contest ready to share with you guys shortly, this book is amazing, the best thing I've ever done, and I am so dang proud to have collaborated with so many fine illustrators, old friends and new, to give the book such an amazing variety. If you like my work, you are strongly encouraged to visit www.FairyTalesIJustMadeUp.com and preorder your copy today.
