Two Not-All-That-Quick Plugs

No additional developments to report, though I should have big news for those of you who prefer print to touchscreen later this week. However, there are two things coming up next weekend I wanted to promote, even though I won't be at either one.

Although most of this blog's readers are from the U.S., I know there have been a few folks from Europe reading this, and some of you might be in the area, so: Willow, who did the wonderful cover art for the first Monkey Queen novel, Of Introductions And Abductions, will be appearing at the Festival Harajuku in Paris this coming weekend, September 13 and 14! Look for her at the Collectif Pin Up table. She'll have merchandise for sale, including the new fanzine 101010, which will feature the first chapter of her BD (graphic novel) The Journey Of Earth! Get more info at , and as always, see more of Willow's work at . And if you do go, tell her that Michiko and Beth sent you. And post her reaction in the comments. :)

And also on September 14, John Kovalic (the mastermind behind the great Dork Tower webcomic, and artist for Munchkin and many other games) will be taking part in the Bike the Barns ride, to help raise funds to help needy families in the Madison, Wisconsin area buy healthy, locally-sourced produce. He's raised over $9000 as I write this, and as a result, he will be riding the entire 60 miles with Cthulhu tentacles strapped to him, and a duck on his head. (And a Republican Dalek drunk-tweeting his ride. Really.) (Though I was hoping there would have been a “Duck chases him for 60 miles swinging an axe, with 'Yakety Sax' Benny Hill music in the background” stretch goal. Maybe next year.) Anyway, you get some great swag for backing him, and more importantly, it's a great cause. Get more info and back him at , read Dork Tower at , and follow his Twitter feed at @muskratjohn.
