Indie's First! at Trail's End Bookstore

In honor of Small Business Saturday, I'll be taking a cue from Sherman Alexie and will send several hours (11-2) today as a volunteer bookseller at my local independent here in Winthrop, WA. I'll be sticking close to home in the children's section, but there are SO MANY great books to recommend and I look forward to seeing you there!


Harts Pass No. 178

Out for a morning run on Saturday and it was COLD! I warmed up eventually, but something about the start made me wish that I was a mouse, or a bird... or somewhere closer to eight years old :)


Harts Pass No. 177

Nothing against the iPad -- but I think its true that a wolverine would find one a little dull -- even if it did work with claws! On a separate, albeit slightly ironic note, a huge THANK YOU to everyone that has been using their iPad/smartphone/laptop/desktop technologies to help fund the HARTS PASS KICKSTARTER!


The Harts Pass Kickstarter!


Hey Harts Pass fans,


After LOTS of planning I've finally pulled together my Kickstarter Campaign and hope to self-publish a comprehensive collection - 3 YEARS! - of Harts Pass Comics. HOORAY!

I released a smaller version through lulu.com several years ago, but this is the real deal. 100+ pages and 170+ comics in a larger (9" x 7") high-quality perfect-bound softcover book. And for those of you familiar with the "Team Harts Pass" performance tees, or the GRRR! GEAR polar fleece hats from last winter, check out the rewards tiers to soothe your savage beast.

This won't be my last update/announcement about this, but thanks in advance for supporting it at any level that you can :)


Harts Pass No. 176

My crutch tendency with these comics is to get all introspective and melancholy. Apologies people, I may not be inherently funny -- but I do stand firmly behind my occasional sentimental drift. Enjoy as always!

Harts Pass No. 175

I forgot to post this last week, so you're about to get two doses of Harts Pass in a row. Number 175 and 176 coming at you in close succession... Hold on to your seats!
