I made a Bookshop.org page of recommended books!

A bunch of books!

I recently found out about Bookshop.org, which sells books online and donates 10 percent of its profits to pool that’s divided between indie bookstores! So now I try to buy all new books online through my local indie bookstore’s website or Bookshop.org. Please do check it out!

I also found out that Bookshop.org allows anyone to create a page with links to recommended books. That’s integrated with their sales engine, so 10 percent of the profits on those book sales also go to indie bookstores. (And 10 percent goes to the creator of the list!)

So I’ve set up my own Bookshop.org page, with lists of books about writing, great books by friends, some of the best books I’ve written myself, and some of the books that made me who I am.

Please do check it out, and thanks as always!

Greg Pak Shop now lets customers direct 50% of their purchase price to local comic shops

I’m thrilled to announce that my online store is now giving customers the chance to designate a local comic shop to receive a commission of half of the price of their purchases!

The COVID-19 crisis has hit comic shops hard. I’m hoping this will help put a few dollars into the hands of shop owners who have done so much for me and for thousands of creators and fans.

Please click here for more details and feel free to poke around the store and buy tons of stuff! I’ve restocked the store with loads of new rare variants and books — and even included a fun Garage Sale section with a few books I DIDN’T write!

Just type the name of a local shop into the “special instructions” field when you check out and we’ll send them half of your purchase price (minus shipping). If we can’t reach the shop you listed or if they can’t accept PayPal, we’ll send the commission to another shop on the list, selected at random, or donate it to the Book Industry Charitable Foundation.

Thank you so much for your consideration, and have fun shopping!

PRINCESS WHO SAVED HER FRIENDS now available for pre-order on Backerkit!

If you missed the Kickstarter campaign for the PRINCESS WHO SAVED HER FRIENDS children’s book, have no fear! You can now pre-order the book at Backerkit!

Check it out!

The book is written by Greg Pak and Jonathan Coulton with art by Takeshi Miyazawa, colors by Jessica Kholinne, and letters by Simon Bowland.

The original PRINCESS WHO SAVED HERSELF book celebrated a scrappy kid who stuck up for herself but was always able to open the circle and find reconciliation with the monsters and witch she came into conflict with. We absolutely love that story of determination, bravery, and understanding.

But what happens next, when our heroine discovers that the witch she befriended miiiiight not be such a great friend after all?

THE PRINCESS WHO SAVED HER FRIENDS tackles the kind of tricky personal conflict that kids — and adults — grapple with every day in the real world.
