Dear readers, fellow creators, friends:
There’s no happy way to say this – it’s time to hunker down and stay close and safe. In the face of the growing coronavirus outbreak, we – Wendy and Richard – have made the difficult and frankly heartbreaking decision to cancel personal appearances for the remainder of 2020. This is not at all how we imagined this year, even as recently as a month ago. But common sense says we can’t ignore what’s happening all over the US right now. We have so much to accomplish in the coming months; we’re in good health right now and we want to keep it that way.
Believe us, if you’re disappointed, we’re more so. We enjoy conventions and signings, meeting with fans and friends, sharing the excitement of a happy gathering. We will try to come up with substitutes: if you were hoping to get books or comics signed, you can still send them here to Warp Graphics. If you wanted to purchase merchandise, we still have our eBay Elfquest Shop and there will be promotions and specials. Who knows, we may even try streaming events via Facebook Live or similar. Stay tuned.
In the meantime, know that we are thinking of you all as we push ahead on Stargazer’s Hunt and other projects, and we wish everyone good health and calm minds and hearts. Shade and sweet water.
— Wendy and Richard Pini
