new new new!

Today is a good day! A shiny new book is out there in the world. Anya’s Ghost is in stores and people are getting their copies which fills my heart with joy. Thanks so much to the folks buying books, telling their friends about it, and writing me nice notes to say that they liked it! Makes all that hard work totally worth it.

You know what else is new? This website. How about that. Thanks to the lovely Nate Beaty here is a spiffy new site with spiffy new features and a spiffy new integrated blog. There are things that will probably need tweaking but it’s pretty darn close to perfect. I’m hoping the blogspot rss feeds automatically transferred to the new wordpress one like they are supposed to.  If they didn’t you can resubscribe by hitting that rss link on the sidebar.

The store is also nice and new, but you can’t buy the items just yet. I’ve got to get the shipping costs calculated and then you’ll be able to buy prints and draw this dress sets and minicomics and all kinds of stuff. I’ll post about it here when it’s good to go.

So yeah! Poke around! Let me know if anything looks weird! I’m gonna go celebrate!

    I preordered your book ages ago so it was a surprise when it arrived today. I read it immediately, and loved it! :) New website is also spiffy.

    Congrats on Anya’s Ghost. I walked through the 100+˚F heat to the bookstore to pick it up and it’s WONDERFUL. I am so inspired that you started in 2007. I don’t feel like I have to finish a book in a month or two!

    Long time blog lurker and I am excited to get the book! :D Australia is a bit slow about these things.

    Alsooo um I wanted to buy stuff from your shop page but I couldn’t work out how? Is it because things aren’t available maybe? I can see a price when I mouse over things but can’t for the life of me find a “buy” button. :D;;

    Love it! Lookin’ sharp. I’m gonna buy one of everything when the shop opens up.

    The library wound up circulating it early. Nice.

    I also saw a dress that you should draw today.

    Hey Vera,

    I just read my copy of Anya’s Ghost tonight. I unexpectedly plowed through the whole thing in one sitting. The artwork was spectacular and creative. It drew me right in and was just thing for a restless summer night in my too hot apartment. :)

  9. congrats! I can’t wait to get a copy :) beautiful work, you should definitely celebrate hardcore!

  10. Jim says:

    My copy arrived today and I’m so looking forward to reading it. I wish you every success with this title and my only hope is that it reaches a much wider audience than you expected it too. You make beautiful art, and more people need to see it.

    Hey you! This is great and I got here from the RSS subscription so I guess that part of it still works.

    It was soooo cool to see your book in the Anchorage book store on the first day it came out and I’m excited to poke around the new site. Stay cool. Have a rad summer.

    Congrats again on “Anya’s Ghost” which I bought at the event in PDX yesterday and for the nifty new website!

  13. John Pesina says:

    I’m saving up money to buy a hardcover copy of “Anya’s Ghost” on Amazon. The preview pages look lovely, though. Congrats, Vera!

    By the way, the site looks lovely.

    Hi Vera,
    I just bought your book Anya’s Ghost, (the last copy at Indigo) and I can only say this: AMAZING!!!! I really hope you continue writing books like Anya’s Ghost, as it’s the best graphic novel I’ve read in a really long time.

    Yay!! I really like the book! Super like! :D

    I just finished reading my copy today! It’s amazing! I’m 20 and I’m glad I skulked around the youth section of the bookstore, ’cause I came across “Anya’s Ghost”! :)
    Lovely art and great story! Keep doing what you do!
