Hello Megan
Hello Megan

 (I miss Young Justice)

This weekend, I'll be in Brooklyn at FlameCon, a LGBTQ+ convention, and I'll have tons of Bingo Love goodies there. If you bring proof that you pledged to the Kickstarter, I'll give you your keychains, stickers, and anything else that you pledged. It would be my honor to meet you and shake your hand.

Also, for this weekend only I've opened up preorders online. Head on over to BingoLoveComic.net and get your preorder on. 

Next conventions after FlameCon will be Baltimore Comic Con and NYCC! I'm so excited to meet as many people as I can who pledged to bring this book to reality.

Have a great weekend everyone!!!

Keychains, Pins & Stickers!
Keychains, Pins & Stickers!

 I can't wait to get these amazing goodies to y'all! They're just so beautiful. Some of you have already picked up your stickers, postcards and enamel pins at conventions. Thank you so much for stopping by and telling me that you supported the book and even picking up other books that I had on the table; it made a gal cry.

Speaking of cons, I have 3 more cons that I'll be attending:

FlameCon 8/19-8/20 in Brooklyn, NY

Baltimore Comic Con 9/22-9/24 in Baltimore, MD

NYCC @the Jacob Javitz Center 10/5-10/8

If you attend these conventions and show proof that you backed Bingo Love, I'll give you your goodies there instead of waiting until the end of the year.

Now, let's get to other fun things. Here's a few pages, that are simply gorgeous.

Asia Kendrick-Horton Variant Reveal
4 months ago – Thu, Jun 08, 2017 at 12:08:53 AM

TADAAAAAAAAA!!!!!
TADAAAAAAAAA!!!!!

 We blew through all the stretch goals for Bingo Love and it was such a fantabulous thing and one of the stretch goals was to unlock a variant cover from Asia Kendrick-Horton. Now, Asia also designed the enamel pin of Mari and Hazel kissing - which will be coming hella soon to my home - and she'll also be illustrating the honeymoon story with Marguerite Bennett.

Asia is a beautiful Black bisexual and proud woman, and I'm super lucky to call her friend. I asked if she wanted to do a variant if we reached the stretch goal and of course she was in, so without further ado, may I present unto you all this beautiful and downright scandalous and sexy variant cover of Bingo Love!!!!

Rawwwwrrrr!!!
Rawwwwrrrr!!!

If you'd like to purchase this variant cover head on over to BackerKit and place your order! 

Next update I'll have photos of the pins and MAYBE a page or two for you. :) Also, don't forget to answer the sticker question!

FREE Sticker Surveys Headed Your Way!!!! PLEASE RESPOND!!!

Edited to add: (here's the link to the survey: https://bingo-love.backerkit.com/backer/survey) THANKS BRENNA!!! 

Here is the FREE STICKERS that no one can see!

 SEE? They EXIST!

Free stickers are coming your way as we knocked out EVERY GOAL thanks to all of you dope individuals. So, with that said, I'm going to need you to answer the sticker surveys that are headed your way. The stickers are going to the printer soon, BUT, I need an accurate count of how many I need.

Please. Don't delay with these surveys, the sooner you can answer them the better. I want to get everything shipped out and to you in such a timely manner and I can only do that is if you work with me...

Every PHYSICAL TIER BACKER is entitled to ONE SET OF FREE STICKERS!!! And if you noticed, there are 3 sets of stickers from 3 different time periods. So, it's up to YOU to choose which time period you want. Here's a refresher for ya.

1963 STICKER:

 2030 STICKER

2030
2030

 Answer the questions via BackerKit survey and get them back to me by JUNE 9TH!!!

(OHHH SHUSH, STOP COMPLAINING!) Yes. I know that's such short notice, but I decided to let you choose, I was originally going to just throw a sticker in there and call it a day. See how nice I am? :P

Actually. I want to take some stickers with me to Heroes Con and that's the latest date, so do me a favor and get those surveys to me ASAP, k?

ALSO. Many of you have been asking if you can purchase these stickers and to that I say YES, you can! The stickers are 3 for $12 or $5 a piece. They're 3.5" x 4", so it's a nice size sticker. 

You'll see the options for FREE 1963, FREE 2015, FREE 2030, use those to choose which sticker you want. 

Last thing. I was told that the enamel pins will be shipping out to me this/next week. I can't wait to show off these beautiful enamel pins. Be on the lookout for a pretty pin update. 

As always thanks for everything and don't forget to hurry up and...
