Hilary Price Book Event; Website Reconstruction

Western Massachusetts cartoonist Hilary Price will present her new book Pithy Seedy Juicy Pulpy at Broadside Books in Northampton, MA at 7pm on Tuesday, January 22. The book compiles many of her syndicated Rhymes With Orange strips, along with a mighty multitude of extras.

The Trees & Hills Comics Distro is under reconstruction; unrelated troubles caused some delays, but I'm hoping to have it finished and up to date soon (maybe within a week or so). When that's done, I'll begin work on the main site. Marek Bennett has been bubbling and frothing (so to speak) with blogging ideas, so the new, not-yet-entirely-settled-upon look will be more of a change than originally planned. If you have any suggestions, send them to treesandhills at gmail dot org.

Megan Baehr also recently redesigned her website, hopping on the WordPress bandwagon. Where will this madness end?!

I'm just frothily interested in HOW people use this page. We're all busy posting our OWN blogs, but it seems to me that T&H is a great COMMUNITY CENTER, that can tie together lots of voices in the New England Comics Community.

For example, I check the BLOGWATCH frequently. It feels like THAT is the pulse of the T&H community, while this here T&H blog can perform sort of an editorial/highlight function.

I think the DISTRO is also key, because it can highlight new releases by T&H artists. And the CALENDAR lists events. With some careful design (and RSS automation), this can become a really streamlined, comprehensive central listing of comics-related events, voices, ideas, new releases...

So, yes... tell Colin how you use this site, or what you'd like to see here!

Actually, Colin, I'm wondering if a short survey might be a good way to collect some of that info.
