Why Do I Do This To Myself?

Good News: Got the cover art for book #2! It looks great, especially as a companion piece to the artwork from book #1. I'll post pictures once I assemble the finished cover.

Other News: So, now I need to assemble the finished cover. And write the book's Foreword, and select the Quick Tips. And get the book off to the printer. I don't know if there's time. I was thinking over the weekend that I could still make a comic book using existing comics, but I'd have to put it together RIGHT NOW. And as much as I'd like to think that I could just "throw together" a comic book, there's not enough hours in the day.

I am seriously considering changing up my Stumptown format this year. Instead of running a Silly Game to give away swag, I may go more low-key. I'll put out my first book, tote bags and Zombie Danger Cards to sell. I think I'll have a Show Special giveaway item for Fans and Friends, and the Get Out of Trouble Cards will still be free, but I won't hand them out so aggressively. I think this will be less exhausting, but I'm a little worried that it won't be as much fun. It's not like I'm going to make a profit from this, so if it isn't lots of fun, why am I doing it?

I have to figure all this out very soon. There aren't many weeks left before the show.
