I will be returning to the Small Press Expo in Bethesda, MD this year with plenty of goodies, including O Human Star Volume One, The First Time, and a couple dozen copies of the comic I created to pitch my upcoming graphic novel Meal! Find me at table E13-B. I’m really looking forward to returning to one of my favorite cons, so I hope to see some of you there!
Attention, Brooklyn! I will be at booth 50 at Flame Con this weekend (Saturday 8/20 – Sunday 8/21) inside the Marriott at the Brooklyn Bridge!(And attendance on Sunday is free to youth under 20!)
I will be offering…
O Human Star Volume One
The First Time (an 18+ OHS side story)
The Food Porn anthology (18+, featuring a Miles and Honesty story from yours truly ;0)
The New World anthology
See you there, Brooklyn!
The news is out today: I am going to be writing and illustrating a new graphic novel to be published by Iron Circus Comics! Here’s the official blurb:
The irrepressible Yarrow McMurray is a woman on a mission: A mission to put bugs in your burgers. Worms in your stir-fry. Maggots in your… muesli?
Sure. Why not.
In short, Yarrow eats bugs. And cooks bugs! And loves bugs. Inspired and driven on her quest by short-tempered guiding force and employer Chanda Flores, she won’t rest until everybody else feels the same way, including her skeptical girlfriend Milani Spence.
Written in the spirit of classic food and cooking manga like Drops of God,Cooking Master Boy and Yakitate!! Japan, Blue Delliquanti, author of the critically acclaimed and Lambda Literary Award-nominated O Human Star, plans to bring Meal to ICC and adventurous readers in 2017!
Keep up with all future updates on this book at mealcomic.com! I can not wait to make headway on this.
Thanks to everyone who attended DINK this past weekend! O Human Star Volume One won two of the convention’s inaugural awards: Best Self-Published Work and the attendee-voted Best In Show. This is a huge honor and I’m still kind of reeling from it. Thank you for your votes and your support!
Denver! I will be at table D28 this weekend at DINK in the Sherman Street Event Center! I will be selling a cute new O Human Star magnet set alongside copies of Volume One and a few other books, so come see me there!
Cool news! This week, O Human Star Volume One was nominated for a Lambda Literary Award in the LGBT Graphic Novels category, and the Denver Independent Comic and Art Expo’s DINKy Awards in the Best Work – Self Published and Outstanding Work – Diversity categories. The winners will be announced for all three awards later this year – thanks for the nominations!
Exciting update on a project I’ve been working on this year! I’ve contributed a story to an upcoming anthology of sci fi based on real life technology!
The collection is called Future Visions: Original Science Fiction Stories Inspired by Microsoft, and it’ll be available on all major eBook platforms for free on November 17th. All of authors were given inside access to a Microsoft Research lab and the visits served as inspiration for each of our stories.
Forgot to upload my SPX announcement, whoops! But it went great as always, with O Human Star nominated for an Ignatz Award as Outstanding Online Comic. Now I’m off to my first New England con this weekend in Easthampton, MA! Topatocon will be held in the Eastworks building and you can find me at table B4!
Atlantans and Decaturites! Come stop by the Decatur Book Festival in the downtown Decatur area on Labor Day weekend and you’ll get to see me sharing a table with local cartoonist and pal Reed Black. We’ve got all kinds of cute gay comics for sale, and the DBF is an outstanding event, so enjoy yourself!
