For those of you who may not follow my webcomic My Sister the Freak (or maybe you do and in that case you are AWESOME), I just wanted to let you know that I just finished the first chapter of the second book. You can read it all right now, along with the entire first book, over on the comic site mysisterthefreak.com.
You can now download Chapter 1 as a PDF for convenient reading on your tablet device or computer. For the first week (until Nov 20) you can get it for 50% off. Grab it here.
Apple released a new piece of software called iBooks Author. It is for making digital, interactive books for the iPad and is available as a free download. I recently gave it a test run, and was pleased with the results. Here’s my overall impressions and thoughts, and a free download of my first ever iBooks book!

What is My Sister, the Freak?
In case you don’t know, My Sister, the Freak is my ongoing webcomic and it updates with a new page every Saturday. You can read it for free at mysisterthefreak.com. If you haven’t read my webcomic or are behind a few weeks, these digital editions are a nice handy way to catch up. I’ll be starting up Chapter 4 (the last chapter for this particular story) very soon, so this is an ideal time to read the previous issues. :)
This is part 2 in my series of posts about the making of my “Once Upon a Time” picture book. See my previous post here: Part 1
I’ve been writing, ranting, and debating about books, art, self-publishing, and digital publishing non-stop since launching The Illustrated Section a few weeks ago. It’s time to stop talking and start CREATING.
I’m going to make a picture book!
This is the first in what will be a regular series of posts that will go through the entire process, from sketch to sale. So here we go…
