Heart in a Box OGN

The only way to avoid heartbreak is to be heartless …

In a moment of post-heartbreak weakness, Emma wishes her heart away and a mysterious stranger obliges. But emptiness is even worse than grief, and Emma sets out to collect the seven pieces of her heart, in a journey that forces her to face her own history and the cost of recapturing it!

Written by novelist Kelly Thompson (Jem & the Holograms, Storykiller)

Drawn by Meredith McClaren

I may have made a casual addition to my storenvy, should there be any interested parties…

Hey all.

If you missed out on the Storykiller Kickstarter, the webstore is open now, including limited edition signed copies of the illustrated hardcover, all kinds of cool swag, and limited edition signed prints, like the gorgeous Ben Caldwell “Unconventional Trio Triptych” Print above.

Shop till you drop…or something.

That Time Buffy Joined Up with the Snow Queen - A Talk with Kelly Thompson About her New Kickstarter, Storykiller!

You all know Kelly Thompson as my colleague on 3 Chicks Review Comics and more importantly as the writer of the super successful Kickstarter funded book “The Girl Who Would Be KIng” which blew away its funding target, received amazing reviews and … well I can’t tell you the rest .. but soon. Kelly is back with another Kickstarter project and it is just as amazing. This book is called Storykiller. What’s it about? Here’s the pitch from Thompson:

“It’s classic Fiction meets Buffy The Vampire Slayer for a new generation.”

That’s Tessa Battle, the titular character, and her team including Robin Hood and the Snow Queen. That piece is by Stephanie Hans but there are also more amazing artists in it including Dustin Nguyen, Ben Caldwell, Ming Doyle, Matthew Southworth, Kris Anka, Renae DeLiz, Ross Campbell and Noelle Stevenson and more! 

Kelly blew through her original funding goal in 72 hours but you can still get in and get some awesome extras.

Check out the Kickstarter here.

I did a Q&A with Kelly so she could tell us more about the project, how it came to be, and because this IS us, Batman.

Help Bring Back the 3 Chicks Podcast!

Over the last months Kelly and I have received so many notes asking what happened to the 3 Chicks Review Comics podcast on CBR’s Comics Should Be Good. Our hiatus mostly ihad to do with Kelly being focused on her Kickstarter for her novel Storykiller  (which you can buy now on Kelly’s store). But it was also because our hosting service was causing us problems and the price was a little beyond the funds the site brings in. The equation is this:

Amount of money we make on podcast = $00.00

Amount of money it costs to to make podcast (including hosting, software and comics) $250 minimum per year. 

Kelly and I went back and forth on moving forward and will be able to cover some of it but thought that given the number of folks who enjoyed it we would throw open the donation jar.

If you feel like throwing a few dollars to the cause you can donate on Kelly’s 1979Semifinalist site - just scroll down the page and hit the donate button on the left hand side.

We’ve busy lining up guests for our return which with your help should happen in the next weeks.

We even have a new logo by Caanan!

Thanks in advance for any assistance!

Okay. Let’s start 2015 off right!

Here’s a peek at a GORGEOUS Ross Campbell Tessa Battle from the next volume of Storykiller!

Storykiller 2: All Of Them Are True will be out in 2015. I’m hard at work on it now and there will be more news in the coming months. GET PUMPED. :)

Huge thanks to my pal Ross Campbell who gave this illustration to me as a Christmas gift…I am a very very lucky girl. :)

If you don’t have the first volume of Tessa’s adventures you can still get the deluxe illustrated version (and cool swag!) here.

Or the cheap and/or digital versions on Amazon, here.

Happy Friday, kids!

My two novels - THE GIRL WHO WOULD BE KING and STORYKILLER are on sale (temporarily) on Amazon Kindle editions for $2.99 each.


Cover art for both books by the fantastic Stephanie Hans (@stephanie-hans)

Still time to get a deluxe illustrated foil stamped signed hardcover edition of STORYKILLER in time for Christmas!

This deluxe limited edition includes 32 full color pages of illustrations by some of comics best artists - like the above “Robin & Tessa” by Stacey Lee - the fantastic new artist on Marvel’s forthcoming SILK.

(there’s also ONE limited edition print left of this particular Stacey Lee print).

The big sale going on now is the lowest price to the original Kickstarter that you’ll ever see, so run, don’t walk to the Storykiller store and get something fantastically unique for someone (or you!) for the holidays. :)
