Due to my working excessive hours and self-publishing/promoting my debut novel Welcome to The Fold, expect updates to Shelf Abuse to be sporadic at best.
I currently receive more review and news requests than I could ever humanly respond to, but nevertheless feel free to contact me with your comic books, graphic novels, webcomics, video games, movies and creative projects. Just don't hold it against me if I don't reply.
Guest bloggers, interviews, press releases and art previews are also welcome (self-publishers, please visit the submission guidelines page first).
