Northwest Book Tour

"The Homeland of Pure Joy, maybeparade’s first official publication, has given all involved such an opportunity. From the moment William Dewey shared the manuscript of his third novel, maybeparade has grown into a community of able-handed and multi-talented individuals. We are now entering into the production phase and will be printing and binding the books locally. Thus, it is with great enthusiasm that we hope to bring our community to yours and open up the celebration of maybeparade’s official inauguration with a book launch and regional book tour." -from the 'The Homeland of Pure Joy' by William Dewey Kickstarter page

Remember the New Zealand plant illustration I made a couple weeks ago in order to help support a new book and independant press? Well,The Kickstarter is up and running for the publication and book tour of The Homeland of Pure Joy by William Dewey! I encourage everyone to check out the Kickstarter as well as Maybeparade, which is run by my good friend Clare in Portland. Also, if the tour is coming to a city near you, I would suggest stopping by. They will be visiting Portland, Seattle, Olympia, and Denver and I'll definitely be attending the Seattle reading at Elliott Bay. Stay tuned or visit the facebook page for more updates. 


  1. Eep! How awesome :D I live in Portland and definitely check this out.
    I'm loving your blog, by the way! Your Etsy shop is darling.

    xo, Samantha

  2. Thank you so much for stopping by! The reading in Portland will probably be really fun and a good way to meet some awesome people! They made their goal on Kickstarter so I'm super excited (if you can't tell from all the exclamation points)!
