My wife and I would like to extend a heartfelt thank you to Sara Mayhew and all of the donors for awarding us this opportunity! While I am planning on officially launching the comic at the event, my wife and I will also be celebrating our honeymoon in Las Vegas! We are currently planning our reception and a little help goes a long way.

The Amaz!ng Meeting (TAM) is an annual celebration of science, skepticism and critical thinking. People from all over the world come TAM each year to share learning, laughs and the skeptical perspective with their fellow skeptics and a host of distinguished guest speakers and panelists. The goal of the Rising Star Grant is to find young individuals who have an interest in skepticism and have the potential to contribute new talent to skeptical communities. Grant winners should demonstrate outstanding work in their field and/or talents valuable to the promotion of scientific skepticism.

I scrambled a little to get the website up early and was also prompted set up a Twitter, Google+, and Facebook. There isn’t much there yet, but I will be sure to keep up with my progress as we approach launch if you want to follow along!

My goal beyond TAM is a complete book by October for the Reason In The Rock conference in Little Rock and Skepticon in Springfield. I took a week off work to ink comics and attend a wedding, and completed another 8 strips in the last three days. I hope I can keep up the pace!
