      Post Comic Con update:

      WOW! Thank you to everyone who purchased a book! We were overwhelmed by how many people showed up on preview night to purchase it. We had a line down the hall! It was an exhausting and fun filled time at Comic Con. It was really great to meet so many people and it's an experience we will never forget! We also want to thank everyone that attended the Disney Story Process and Bolt panels.

      Stuart Ng and Labyrinth Books did grab some books from us to sell and ship internationally so if you would still like one please visit their sites - But hurry, we gave them a very small amount of books!

      So ...... now that it's all over, what's next?

      Good question! For the next installment in the Who, What, Why, Where series.
