Technically DC isn't a state, but no one is too pedantic about it because they don't want to disturb the snakes.

Insane Charity Bike Ride 2016 SWAG UPDATE!

Dork Tower - Tue, 11/29/2016 - 23:01

Screen Shot 2016-05-30 at 11.06.33 AM

As the swag for the 2015 Insane Charity Bike ride was ridiculously slow in getting to people (completely my fault, for reasons I’ve touched on here before), I wanted to double-down, and make sure the swag for the 2016 event got out faster than ever before.

And it looks like it’s on track to do just that!

The Army of Dorkness buttons and the Cloisonné pins are done, and with Fulfillment Gurus David now. The Munchkin Charity postcards are done, printed, and just waiting to be signed…and then I send those off to David, as well:


The last bit-o-swag is the Pat Rothfuss limerick mini-print, and that should go to press this week:


(Pat’s limerick will go on the obvious black space. Want to know what it is? Well, you shoulda backed the bike ride! KIDDING!  There’ll still  be a chance for you to see it – the uncolored version of the mini-print will go in the brand-new charity coloring book, which you can get by backing next year’s ride!)

Anyway, once the mini-prints come back from the printer, they go on to Pat to be signed, then I sign them, and then the 2016 swag is DONE!

Thank you all again for making the 2016 Insane Charity Bike Ride the most successful yet! And if production stays on target, it’ll be the quickest we’ve ever gotten swag pout to backers!

If I were trapped on a desert island, and could have an unlimited supply of any one type of apple, I'd be like, "How did this situation happen?"

t-shirtcolor_origHey, guys!

Sorry! Long time no desperate wailings about the fall of Western Democracy talk see!

HEY! This Saturdayy – THIS VERY COMING SATURDAY – I’m at London’s DRAGONMEET again, for the first time in years!

You have no idea how excited I am, to be back at this amazing con after all these years. This was always a very special con, for me. I’m so ridiculously pleased to be a returning guest.

Not entirely sure what my schedule is, but I’m bringing my signing pens, and at the ready!Bring anything – I WILL SIGN IT! (As you well know, unsigned Things By Me always bring higher eBay prices than Signed Things By Me: they are far rarer).

I am SO excited to be back at such a great convention!

As many of you know, despite my (current) accent (I’ve had many), I was born in Britain, so Dragonmeet has always been an exceptionally special con, to me.

It almost feels like a homecoming!

Later, when I remember that I'm calling movers, I frantically scribble over the labels and write 'NORMAL HOUSE STUFF' on all of them, which actually makes things worse.
