DRAMA Book Trailer!

Here's the book trailer for DRAMA!

Thanks to Scholastic, who made this whole thing and animated my artwork. :)

And don't forget about the #DRAMADAY Contest! <--- Click the link for more info! The contest starts as soon as the book is available (September 1), and you can enter to win original artwork by me, and other goodies!

The #DRAMADAY Contest!

Since the DRAMA release date is quickly approaching, I'd like to give everyone a chance to get in on the fun--not just buying the book, but making it into a celebration. So: I'm announcing a CONTEST!

DRAMADAY Contest Rules:

1. Take a photo of yourself (or you and your friends) buying a copy of DRAMA on or near the release date. If you want to dress up as the main character, Callie, or any of the other characters...even better.

2. Post it somewhere! Your blog, Facebook, Twitter, Tumblr...anywhere!

3. "Like" my Facebook page, Raina Telgemeier's Comics.

4. Post a link to your photo/blog post/tweet/tumbl/etc on my Facebook page. Be sure to include the word #DRAMADAY (including the # symbol) in the post!

That's it! You have until Saturday, September 8 at midnight EST to enter.


I will pick three entries at random from the posts on my Facebook page! I'm going to award three (3) prizes:

1. Original art of the DRAMA characters, by me!

2. A chance to "meet" me over Skype! You and I will both appear as guests on a future episode of the Comics Are Great live broadcast, and we can talk about whatever you like on the air!

3. A SMILE t-shirt in your choice of sizes.


Here are some other things you can do if you simply want to participate in #DRAMADAY:

--Write a review on Goodreads, Amazon, Shelfari, B&N, or any other site that lets you review books!

--Draw some fan art! There's nothing an artist loves more than seeing her characters interpreted by others.

Here are a couple of web banners you can post on your site, to help spread the word about #DRAMADAY!

Thanks to my friend Jerzy, who not only made the banners you see here, but suggested the idea of #DRAMADAY in the first place!


Now, for something I think a few people may have been waiting for... THE COVER OF DRAMA!

Drama by Raina Telgemeier September, 2012 Scholastic/Graphix 240 pages Full-color

I should be able to post a full book description soon, once the Scholastic Fall catalog drops. I'll be doing a huge wave of touring and promotion starting this spring, so keep your eyes on my events calendar (to the right of this blog) to see if I'll be coming to a town near you!

In just a couple of weeks I'll be in the San Francisco Bay Area for some school and library events, plus a few bookstore signings and a workshop at the Charles M. Schulz Museum. Full post with all the information is coming soon. I can't wait.

In the meantime, thanks for your patience as I finish up the production work on Drama. I'll have more exciting work-related news in the near future--never a dull moment here in my studio!

Take care, everyone!
