My new Enhanced Webcomic
I’ve been looking for a new creative outlet for a while now, and I’ve found it in the form of a new webcomic called Ferret in a Lab Coat. The concept of a webcomic has fascinated me for quite some time, as the potential goes so far beyond traditional printed comics. When I started planning for Ferret, I played around with ideas of what could be done on the web that can’t be done in print. I didn’t see any reason to fit a web-based comic into a set of restrictions defined by newspapers. I call this the “Enhanced Webcomic.”
Book Signing Guide
Some of the most popular pages on this website have been my blog posts filled with book signing tips. I have collected them together, extended them with new content, and added tips and stories from dozens of other authors. The result is my new book for writers: Gary’s Guide to Successful Book Signings, with almost 200 pages of help in making the your book events the best they can be. Readers can purchase them from their favorite local bookstore or online (it’s available in paperbook and Kindle format), and bookstores can get it through standard distribution channels or direct from the publisher.
