YOU GET AN A+!
Just wanted to pop on here and say thank-you for coming out to our tour events over the last few weeks. And for your support of our book. This is This One Summer’s 2nd week on the New York Times Bestsellers list. :-)

Hi MutantMagic people, I hope you don’t mind me informing you about my upcoming book tour for the graphic novel I did with my cousin, This One Summer. If you like this webcomic, maybe you would like our graphic novel too. It goes on sale May 5, and is available for pre-order now. Here are some pictures of the innards.
Mariko Tamaki and I will be in San Francisco and environs for the west coast launch of This One Summer next week! Here are the deets. (Note: there will be a LA launch in June.)

Are you in Houston? I’ll be in Houston. April 26th, for Teen Book Con. Panel/signing schedule here. Unfortunately, due to some dubious planning, This One Summer will NOT be available for purchase (pub date is May 5), although we will have some to give away/show. Other books will be available.
Complete, updated list of all book tour events––SF, Berkeley, Toronto, NYC, DC––is here. [Ignore the entry for April 25th. I don’t know what’s up with that and I hope it eventually just goes away.]
