I’m Going to San Diego This Year!

We are long past the days when you could up and decide to go to the San Diego Comic-Con, which starts in two weeks, but somehow, I managed it.

Writing for the Beat

Hi, friends! Apologies for lack of posts here — I’ve been writing for other sites for a bit.

RushOrderTees Made Me a CWR Shirt!

Thanks to RushOrderTees, I now have a shirt with my website URL on it! They agreed to send me a sample in return for me mentioning them here. And I’m glad to know of a site that can do single copies of shirts, hoodies, and cups with a logo or design on them. They have plenty of styles and colors to choose from. I’ve already washed it, and both the logo and the size held up, plus it arrived more […]
