Today, we got our finished Printed pages for approval!
They look really great, I was concerned that they were going to be too different because we asked for a lot of changes on the proof, but Global did a wonderful job and got us almost exactly what we wanted!
We're all really excited and we're getting bookplates ready! Expect to see some previews of bookplates next week!
We're also going to be Raffling off some prints from the book for followers in the coming weeks. If you win, you can come to pick them up at the booth at comic con. So Please follow our blog to be entered.

A little inspiration from the great Danny Arriaga above to kick things off!
One thing that might be suprising for those of you who may consider self publishing a book will be the amount of JUNK MAIL you get! I have a feeling that they got my address from the company that sells you ISBN numbers (there's only one)
But I can tell you that I've been inundated with postcards telling me that they could get me on Oprah to promote the book, or with postcards from printing companies telling me how low their costs are. Which makes me think that perhaps some people get an ISBN before they even get a printer!

Whew! Sorry for the late post!
We got confirmation that our changes had been received by the Hong Kong branch and they are now forwarding us the changed Ozalids and digital proofs (honestly, we're still a little confused about the second part there)
But things are moving along, we're starting to plan for our Comic Con booth, with Me and Scott being on hand all four days, we're also trying to see who will be able to come for signings etc.
We're also going to start to do a few original bookplates for our books! We brought up the idea with our artists and everyone seemed really excited about it! Let's just hope life at the studio doesnt get too crazy and we can all pull it off!
