Sandra is Out, Hello Mister Mom

For the record, no, I never actually saw that movie. 

Sandra is off to the Woodthrush Woods Writing Retreat with Mary Robinette Kowal, Shanna Germain, and a bunch of other awesome people. This means that she can't ship you your Schlock Mercenary merchandise, and since I don't know how to ship that stuff any orders placed this week will sit until next Monday. 

Meanwhile, I have plenty to do. I'm the one feeding the kids, shooing them off to school, running all the errands, feeding the kids AGAIN, and somewhere amid all that I'm cranking out a week of comics, three movie reviews, an outline for a super-secret project (I'm under NDA writing prose for somebody else's license -- no, I wouldn't be doing this if I weren't a huge fanboy for said license, you may now begin speculating) and the first pieces for the 2013 calendar.

If you'd like to see one of those pieces, maybe even the very first one, you should be aware that I have made a deal with the Twitterverse. If I garner a total of 5,000 followers, I'll post the finished artwork in my Twitter feed. 5,000 may seem like a lot, but the last time I checked I was at 4,997. So, you know, if THREE PEOPLE reading this post decide to follow me on Twitter, 5,000 people get sneaky-peeksies.

If this is fun, I may do it again for 6,000.
