Off Topic: Georgia is back from Albuquerque. Here’s what she posted on her facebook.
“I had the most amazing time in Albuquerque on Thursday night at the 2019 Winter Institute conference! It was awesome to meet so many independent book sellers…Having a chance to talk about “Lupin Leaps In” was so much fun. As many of you know, I write, draw, ink, and paint the comic at home. My work weeks can become a blur of ink blots and paint splatters, handing in six daily strips and a Sunday, and then onto the next batch! Taking a moment to pause and actually talk about what I write, why I write it, and who it is for (all of you! was a nice mid-winter refresh. I can’t believe how soon the book will be out, March 5th is just around the corner!!! On the flight home I read Komal Kapoor’s “Unfollowing You” in one sitting and silently ugly cried in the best, satisfyingly soul purging way possible. (And excused myself to the passenger next to me for my hot mess weepiness lol, and then told him about the book ) What a great read! I don’t believe in competition between books, because I’m a reader and if you’re a reader then you know there will NEVER be enough books! So, I very much hope you’ll buy “Lupin Leaps In” when it comes out, and if you enjoy poetry, love, loss, and renewal I hope you’ll get “Unfollowing You” too! (Out in 10 days, I believe!) I have the feeling HSH Prince Alexi Lubomirski’s book “Thank You For My Dreams” will be getting a shout out in my posts soon as well, because the Boy and Girl were very excited for that book when I came home! This was such a great conference for a book lover!!!"
