The AAUGH Blog is now on Facebook

For all of you folks who don’t remember to regularly come to blogs, I’ve set up an AAUGH Blog page on Facebook. That way, you’ll see when something new has been posted, will be easily able to share, and will even be able to add comments! So if you’re a …

What is the best of the AAUGH Blog

I’m thinking about adding a little set of links here for newcomers to the blog, listing blog entries that might be particularly interesting, separating out the more entertaining stuff from the more by-the-way “this book has been pushed back on the schedule” type of entries that pop up more often. …

It came to pass

Well, that happened faster than I expected; guess I should’ve been paying more attention. Amazon has chosen to kill payment for its California affiliates. At this point: All the links at the AAUGH.com store still work, still send you to Amazon. It won’t generate any money for me, but that’s …

Facelifts at the AAUGH Blog

I’ve upgraded the AAUGH Blog, moving it to a new host which will put a somewhat more powerful engine under the hood. This has already had some fallout – it’s meant replacing the old blog-by-mail system with Feedburner, which has pluses and minuses (those of you who want blog updates …

A Blanket is a Warm Cover, Charlie Brown

Here we have the cover to the upcoming book Happiness is a Warm Blanket, Charlie Brown, which is a graphic novel adaptation of the upcoming Peanuts special of the same name. The book is available for preorder at a discount. Speaking of covers, that temporary cover for the supposed Schulz …
