Comics for sale!

30/07/2013

Last Saturday I went to the zine fest to launch issue 3 and 4 of my ‘Let Me Be Frank’ comics. I sold or swapped all the comics I brought, but I left a bunch at home just in case any of you, my lovely blog followers, wanted to buy some. They are all thematically compiled, so issue 3 is all about writing, and issue 4 is all about my celebrity obsession. But don’t expect to find the Kardashians in there – by ‘celebrities’ I mean writers and indie pop icons.

Please email me or leave a comment if you do want a copy – they cost $6 NZ each and postage is $2.10, or $4.60 if you want multiple copies. My email address is sarahelizabethlaing@gmail.com.

Also, I was horrified to discover that in this brave new era of e-readers and social media, I have only sold 18 copies of The Fall of Light eBook. Of course the print book is more beautiful, but the eBook is cheaper and you can buy it from anywhere over the world!

I got another lovely review of the novel by Nicky Pellegrino, although she also had reservations about the illustrations – I’m telling myself that it’s because I’m on the vanguard, not because I’ve made a dreadful error of judgement. Oh well, the next book – that’ll show em!

    I’m a dedicated e-book reader these days. But I read your book in ‘flesh’ and I wouldn’t want to read it in any other way. It was actually the first real book I’ve read in a while and I noticed how physically heavy it was! Such lovely paper stock and the cover folds were excellent for keeping my page.

    Personally I don’t think my Kindle would have done the illustrations or the experience of reading your book justice. I found myself flicking back and forth through the illustrations as I got further through the book. You had me exploring the themes and linkages you were making between the text and the images. So very clever.

    Needless to say – I adored your book. I devoured it in a few days (which is rare for me these days) and I will read it again fairly soon. Which is something I do for all great books that I devour first read. Because I know I’ve probably missed nuggets and I want the joy of discovering them and the story that captivated me all over again.
