Our newest book, The Blessed by Remy Apepp, is out now! This dark literary fantasy is already getting great reviews:

Our third and final (for now) comic con was this past weekend! Sarah and Oscar hit the road, traveling a little farther this time, and stayed overnight in the hotel where the two-day event was held. The Mahoning Valley Comic Con was great fun, and full of cosplayers. See pictures below!
Two cons down, and one more coming up next month! Sarah and Oscar sold our books at the Akron-Summit Comic Con this past Sunday, and they had a blast!

The first one was this past Sunday, June 12th: the Pulp Fiction con in Westlake, Ohio. Oscar and I (Sarah) had a lot of fun selling Thinklings' books and other cool merch!
