Be sure to pre-order ASAP if you want a copy as close as possible to the book’s release date!

I’ll be back soon with more info and more tour dates…see you soon!

Entertainment Weekly Profile!

Yeah!! This is so cool, and kinda surreal. Pick up the August 15, 2014 issue of Entertainment Weekly to read an interview with me about Sisters and Smile, my family, and comics in general!

Signed copies of SISTERS by mail!

August 11th, 2014

Hi everyone!

Wow, two weeks until Sisters is out…I’m still sorting out the details of my book tour, although some of the events have been added to my events calendar (over on the right-hand sidebar of my site’s homepage!) and I’ll be adding lots more in the next week or so. I’ll be visiting NYC, DC, Boston, Las Vegas, Ohio, Wisconsin, California, Seattle, Vancouver, Toronto, Miami and lots more.

If you’re not in a state or province I’m visiting, you’re still in luck however! I’m pleased to announce that I’m partnering with my local indie bookstore, Astoria Bookshop, to offer signed copies of my books by mail!

Astoria Bookshop will ship signed copies of my books (including Smile and Drama) anywhere in the United States or Canada, either by USPS or UPS, at various shipping speeds and costs.

*****You can order them here!*****

I’m really excited to finally have a way to send signed books to everyone who wants them! And, it’s really wonderful to be able to support an independent bookstore — doubly so, one in my own neighborhood. If you find yourself in Astoria, Queens, please do yourself a favor and swing by, and tell them Raina sent you…

YES! Comics Squad: Recess comes out next week, and Dave and I are doing an event to celebrate!

Join us on Wednesday, July 9 from 6:30-8pm at the ASTORIA BOOKSHOP – a lovely, new independent bookstore right here in our own neighborhood! New Yorkers not in Astoria, fear not: the shop is very close to the N/Q’s Broadway stop (just a couple of minutes out of midtown), and there is also plenty of parking nearby. Make an evening of it – there are tons of really great restaurants on the intersecting avenues!

We’ll be doing a live reading, some Q&A, and a drawing game–audience participation is totally encouraged! There will be snacks. And, we’ll be signing copies of Comics Squad and our other books!
