Girl Genius Books: Now at TopatoCo!:
We are very excited to be handing the direct sales of our Airship Entertainment products over to the wonderful people at TopatoCo.com They are all set up to sell you fun things from lots of great webcomics, and we absolutely LOVE the idea of not having to pack orders in our basement any more. Our sales have simply gotten too big for us to handle ourselves, and we really need to concentrate on making more things over shipping more things. So please have a look, and check out all the other great webcomic-related stuff they sell.

OTHER CURRENT NEWS: (Carried over from previous posts, lest it be missed...)
We Have a New Assistant:
As many of you know, Studio Foglio is a teensy company, and we have a lot of trouble getting everything done. We are constantly buried under eMail, and have relied on extra help to manage it all. (Even so, we're not that good at it, outside of the basic customer service stuff.) Alice, who has been our assistant for quite a while now, has recently gone to work full-time at Magic Mouse Toys in Pioneer Square. We are now in the process of showing our new assistant, Gwendolyn, the terrors...er...joys of our inboxes, so please be patient with us all as we get everything sorted out and answered. Welcome, Gwendolyn! Thank you for all your hard work, Alice!
SteamCon is Almost Here!:
And we'll be there, at the Girl Genius booth in the vendor's area. In addition, Cheyenne and Eli will be running their annual Lady Heterodyne Airship Regatta and Fancy Hat Party on Sunday morning at 11:00 in Grand E-F.
Girl Genius Volume 11 Pre-Orders Have Shipped
As of 8/16/2012, all of the pre-ordered copies of Girl Genius Volume Eleven (that didn't include original art) have shipped!
The Original art orders are still being worked on, but we're getting there. The current plan is to
schlep out to Cheyenne's place, get the books connected with those orders signed, and send the books on ahead of the artwork. That should happen sometime this week.
Our eBay Auctions Are Currently on Hold:
We're all pretty swamped with the new releases and the Summer travel, so we haven't had any new art posted in a while. We'll get back to it when things calm down.
New PDFs are Coming at DriveThruComics:
I am currently working to update all of the Girl Genius PDFs that can be found on drivethrucomics.com. It's taking forever! Soon, I will have posted the color version of Volume One, as well as the long-awaited Volume Eleven. Stay tuned!
My Web Page is Seriously Outdated:
In the next few weeks, I will be going over the Girl Genius site and fixing all the outdated ads and links. It's pretty embarrassing! It's going to take a while, though, because I have a lot of other things to hammer at. But I just want to let you all know that I am aware of all the things that don't currently work...
We Have NOT Forgotten About the Two As-Yet-Uncolored Page in the Archive:
Cheyenne will get the colors to me when he can, and when he does, I'll post them right away. Thank you all for the kind reminders! EDIT: It seems that Cheyenne somehow never got the black and white pages for those last two. Oh, the hilarity. Le sigh.
My personal LiveJournal, which I sometimes even update, can be found here.
