I sold copies of The Pornographic Flabbergasted Emus for $10 yesterday at Genghis Con. Since some of you don't live near Cleveland and weren't able to attend, I'm having a special sale: $10 postpaid in the USA and $15 postpaid international for each copy of Emus until the end of the year. You won't find this deal on the website, so if you want to take advantage of it, then PayPal me at wredfright@yahoo. com or email me for the mailing address if you want to order via check or whatnot. The book makes a great stocking stuffer! The book is also available at a few bookstores across the US if you'd like to support them. You can find the whole list on the Emus page at my website.
I will be attending Genghis Con, a nifty, small press convention being held on Saturday, November 28, 2009 at the The Beachland Ballroom (15711 Waterloo Rd., Cleveland, Ohio USA 44110-1659, 216-383-1124) from Noon to 6 p.m. It's mostly a comic book convention, but they're including some comics-friendly zine folks such as myself. The focus is on alternative comics rather than mainstream comics but since we won't be far away from the house Superman was created in, someone will probably be walking around with a big red "S" on her or his chest. It's run by my pal Scott Rudge of Astound Comics and should be a good time. It costs $5 to get in, but every participant is giving out a free minicomic. Mine is another adventure of The Thirsty Bear and The Hungry Snake. It'ssss ssssplendid, believe me! I'll also have copies of The Pornographic Flabbergasted Emus on sale for just $10 each, and copies of Fightin' Fun Comics #2, containing my Astronaut Urine Gorilla story, for just 50 cents each, thanks to FFC mastermind Bob Socha! I'll probably have some more surprises too but you'll have to be there in person to find out. There will be plenty of other cool cartoonists and small press folks there as well such as one of my favorite newspaper cartoonists, Derf, so I'm fairly excited about the whole event. Hope to see you there!

Google and Amazon plop ads on here with my permission in the futile hope that I will make money (so far, um, no). I find the ads amusing because they try to tie in with the content of the posts. However, if Google or Amazon has a crush on you, then the ads may deal with things you're interested in instead. Please set your browser accordingly if you object to that (eat those cookies). I also track visitors through a Sitemeter counter just to see if anyone's reading this silly thing (yes, people are), but otherwise I don't give a hoot who you are. Enjoy the blog and love Big Brother! I also don't receive money or other compensation for Yips, though I have nothing against money or other compensation (that's why I run advertising and sometimes use Amazon referrals for links); if I'm selling something (say, my books), then it will be pretty obvious I'm selling it . . . say, have you thought about buying a signed copy of The Pornographic Flabbergasted Emus lately?
