The big book publishers are eager to buy up kids' graphic novels, as I said, and I don't know whether that trend will continue, or if the bubble will burst. But I do think it's worth being somewhat transparent about all of this!

Luckily, I had another source of income drawing drag queens (yayyyy!), and even more luckily, Cardboard Kingdom has done well and earned out its advance!

Advances are SO TRICKY to wrap your head around! They sound like a big lump of money, but they're split up in smaller payments over the whole publishing process--thus, I would NOT have been able to support myself with just my first Cardboard Kingdom book.

These books are through Penguin Random House, and the interest for kids' graphic novels right now is super high! So I feel like I definitely benefited from that. My Cardboard Kingdom advance was split with my writing partners, Doodleville was not.

The discussion going on is super great and also incredibly uncomfortable for someone like me who doesn't like talking about money. But it's worthwhile! I have had four kids' graphic novel deals, all for around 40-45K each. (Thread)

But if you need to listen to something more light-hearted after that, I highly recommend this week's podcast featuring little kids asking big questions -- it's delightful! ❤️

This morning, I found The Daily episode on "The Systems that Protect the Police" to be a really enlightening (but discouraging) look at the various systems that hinder nearly all attempts at reform:
