Cleaning house

Hi, and welcome to the newly-renovated! I've been putting a few coats of paint on the walls, changing the furniture around...and now I'm ready for company! Come on in. There are new illustrations in the gallery, a few new comics to read, and information about all my books, including the forthcoming SMILE! That will be in stores on February 2, but in the meantime, you can read a preview, check out some of the wonderful reviews the book has been getting, and pre-order from your favorite retailer!

I've also added some information about Author Visits, as well as updated my events schedule for the year--it's there on the right. That schedule will be updated VERY regularly, as I confirm more events and appearances over the course of 2010. Stay tuned to my site for ongoing news and info!

In the next few weeks, I'll have a couple of contests you can enter, a few more announcements, and I'll be debuting the animated BOOK TRAILER for Smile, which I'm really excited about.

I'd like to thank my friend Stephanie Yue for putting together this site for me. She did a great job, and if Steph's name sounds familiar to you, that's probably because she was also the colorist for Smile. Thanks, Steph!

Thanks for dropping by, and I hope you enjoy your stay!
