Hmmm — I saw your book recommended on Audible and had never heard of you, but you had some great reviews, so I googled you, but all I really got was the title of your book, mfa@Columbia blah blah and the names of a couple of… movies? tv shows? I’d never heard of, then the name of this blog. Came here and I’m seeing a whole bunch of comic book covers and… I really feel like I missed something somewhere. What do these comic books have to do with anything? It doesn’t say you wrote the stories — at least not that I can see, anyway. I thought there’d be writing — columns with words in them — but these are images. The title of the big seems a bit misleading. Or do m just a horrible Googler. That’s possible. Maybe I’ll come back another time and try again.

Typos. Among others, “title of the *blog*” not “title of the big”. Sorry, was distracted and didn’t edit properly — and on a writer’s blog, of all places…
