Crowdfunded Alice Book with Very Cool Illustrations

You know we love a good crowdfunding project, and there is a fantastic book project on Indiegogo running now through January 6th.  Graphic designer and illustrator Tanika Fey has created 50 beautiful watercolors for her illustrated Alice, available in English and German, and is using Indiegogo to fund the printing of the actual books.  Depending on the success of the project, the book may be printed in a variety of formats with even more illustrations!  So get cracking, sponsoring a project like this makes a great Christmas or Hanukkah gift!  Be sure to check out her webcomix too!

Fifty Shades of Alice?! Ew.

Again from our Fearless Leader (kinda edgy, dontcha think?).  Ok, did we really need this?  Who can say.  And who will review it for KL?  Hayley, please say no ;-)  Is that a mushroom or are you just happy to see me.  Ugh. The first two of three appear to be published (Wonderland and Looking Glass) as audiobooks or on Kindle, what could the third be?
