Nerds of New York
These assorted "nerd jewels" were made by Maggie who is very crafty and reads fast and has new fuzzy chicks that will grow up to be chickens that lay glittery eggs. Or regular eggs. But if anyone's chickens would lay glittery eggs it would be Maggie's.
I sent these nerd accoutrements off to the fabulous marketing gals of Penguin Young Readers Group in celebration of New York ComiCon this weekend, where they will be giving away free galleys of my book! So, if you are going to ComiCon, swing by the booth and get one. If you had not planned on it but are now thinking "hm," well, sorry. It's sold out. The nerds have risen up and conquered the Javitz Center. Yay, nerds!
By the way, lest ye think I cast aspersions, I am a nerd. Yes. I like vampires and zombies and super powers and Middle Earth and weird historical anecdotes like the one I stumbled upon yesterday about how the Danish astronomer Tycho Brahe kept a clairvoyant pet dwarf named Jepp AND lost part of his nose in a duel and so wore various fake noses of silver and gold and copper for the rest of his life AND had a tame moose that died of drunkenness. Zowee! History is a funny funny thing. I wish I could download it into my brain like in the Matrix. How's that for a nerdy little wish? Nerdy nerdy me, tra la la.
