The end-of-year lists are starting to happen, and I’m totally thrilled that RELISH has made it onto a few! One of the things I’m most pleased about when it comes to RELISH is how it transcends a number of genres, inviting readers from various niches. So it’s delightful that it’s categorized differently from list to list! Here are a few that cropped up this past week.
- It’s a finalist under the “Food and Cookbooks” category on Goodreads! If you liked the book, you can vote for it on the site!
- It’s a Publisher’s Weekly best book of the year under their “Children’s Nonfiction” category:
- And it’s an Amazon Best Book of 2013 under the “Comics and Graphic Novels” category:
I’m really happy and incredibly lucky that I’ve had so many lovely readers who enjoyed my book and supported my work in various ways. Every time I think "Ok, that’s probably the end of the awesomeness this book will bring me," there’s another lovely email from a reader, or a cool new review, or a nice person who comes to a reading to get their copy signed. It’s just the best, you guys. The absolute best.
I live in Chicago again! Back to the land where Lucy gets head-colds.
Two days ago, the cat had a head cold and we took her to the vet. The vet said that cats sometimes get respiratory infections due to change. The next day, I got a head cold too.
But Chicago is familiar and so new at the same time. I miss New York sometimes like a chunk of flesh. But today I sniffled and sneezed my way through unpacking, and later John and I watched cartoons together while the first snow fell outside and it was all quite wonderful and layered in a cold medicine fog.
Hey let’s stop holding on for dear life on this crazy change-dragon for a minute and make some comics yeah? Yeah.
Party With Planned Parenthood fundraiser limited edition prints!
The original artwork has already sold and we’ve still got prints available for you to buy. They’re a limited edition of 25, all hand numbered and signed by Lucy Knisley and me on 50lb matte paper.
Help raise money for Planned Parenthood and get some lovely lady-positive art for your wall!
Tomorrow, last day of October, I’m donating all the funds that Lucy and I have raised to Planned Parenthood!
So far that is $1,050, between selling prints and the original artwork.
If we can sell another 9 prints, we can bring that number up to $1,500! And if we sell out of all the prints, we’ll have $1,650
I’ll continue to donate all funds raised from these print sales as a lump sum at the end of each month, till we sell out :)
Hey think of it this way: buy a print, and the next time someone in a pink vest approaches you on the street, you can go “hey, I just donated last week! Keep up the good work, planned parenthood canvassers!” Without the guilt of LIES. Xoxo L
