Cheating the System

Somehow, Barnes and Noble online has the same 20% off discount AND is releasing the book a week earlier than Amazon...whoo-hoo!

I wonder if I just blew it by outing them. Nah, Charlie and Abrams don't read me. Do they?

Another beautiful review is in.

Dude, have I mentioned how freaky spazzed out I am right now? Three more weeks until my entire family is outed. Hold on to your hats people, life is about to get bumpy. And please send your hatemail to the Nigerian Email folks instead of me. I'm empathetic; I take that crap to heart.

Wow. Simple, yet well-written, respectful review.

I just reread this part again:

Beyond the personal triumph of both the story and the work, Mom's Cancer is the kind of book you can hand to a total comics virgin and show them that the art form involves more than just men in tights and capes who bounce between the comic book page and the big screens of Hollywood. Like Maus before it, Mom's Cancer elevates the art form of comics, makes it more accessible to a larger audience. That's another small triumph for this wonderful little book.

Wow. wow wow wow.

Congrats on all the good buzz. I can't wait to read it. And soon your family will even be famous in Germany -- just like David Hasselhoff!

Congrats Lis. I was hoping to see more postings from you about your thoughts. . . I guess I'll have to wait till your done editing to hear you spew more gold. See you tonight!

Can’t wait to read the book! Admittedly, I thought "comics" were just about heroes in tights. One day on spring break (a while ago), I found a copy of The Watchmen. I couldn't stop raving about it. A friend then suggested I read Maus. Loved it! Now I can’t get enough of this medium. Ironically, now all my favorites are ones without "heroes in tights."
Cannot wait to add "Mom's Cancer" to my favorites!

Rah for the outing, my triumphant friend! (Look my wireless works!)
