In Between announcements!

In Between (Pleiades 2017) made its debut at the seventh annual Short Run Comix and Arts Festival this last Saturday, along with incredible new work by many others (highlights for me include Robyn Jordan’s “Whose Embryos” and Alexandria Grace Vickery’s “Thin-Skinned”). This year’s festival was a huge success and I was so proud and honored to have been a part of it.

Now that In Between is out in the world, I wanted to provide some information about scheduled upcoming events, related exhibits, and press (see below). I will be updating information as I learn more. In terms of the book itself, if you’d like to purchase directly from me, your copy will come signed with some additional cut paper treats. If you don’t order from me, please support your local bookstores and make requests from them. And for those of you eager to know how the Arctic Residency went, I will be creating a separate post soon. Thank you for following and for your support <3
