Why should Grunhilda have all the fun? THE LUNCH WITCH author Deb Lucke is on the fly this Spring, traveling near and far to meet her fans and talk about the creation of her first graphic novel. Here are just some of the places you can find Deb in the next few weeks …

MAY 8th-10th  – TORONTO COMIC ARTS FESTIVAL

Deb will be heading north of the border to sign copies of THE LUNCH WITCH and sketch for fans at the Papercutz booth at TCAF.

MAY 19th – SOCIETY OF ILLUSTRATORS 2015 COMIC AND CARTOON ANNUAL RECEPTION (Invite Required)

Deb will be at the Society of Illustrators in New York City to celebrate THE LUNCH WITCH’S inclusion in the 2015 COMIC AND CARTOON ANNUAL.

MAY 29th-30th BOOXEXPO AMERICA/BOOKCON

Deb will be appearing at the ABA’s “Author Speed Dating” Event on the Friday and signing books at the Papercutz booth on Saturday at 2 pm.

In addition, Deb has recently confirmed she will be attending:

JULY 18th – VALCON COMIC FESTIVAL

Deb will be a guest at ValCon, a library convention taking place from 10am to 4pm at Valley Cottage Library on Route 303 in Valley College, New York.

Unlike her creation, DEb is super friendly, so if you’re planning on attending any of these events make sure to say hi!

 

 

 

 

 

THE LUNCH WITCH has a website!

THE LUNCH WITCH has a website!

lunch_witch_website_homepage_graphic

Not content to win rave reviews and the hearts and minds of readers everywhere, Grunhilda, the Lunch Witch has launched her own website. Of course, as the graphic above clearly illustrates, you may want to be careful about clicking on her URL!

lunch_witch_website_books_page_graphic

The new site enhances the reader experience from the acclaimed THE LUNCH WITCH graphic novel, providing more details on some of the characters seen in the first volume (as well as sneak peeks at characters who will be appearing in later volumes of the series). It also helps the reader immerse themselves in Grunhilda’s world with recipes for favorites like Dog’s Breakfast Cookies and Engorged Tick Scones.

Not convinced about the effectiveness of Grunhilda’s potions? Then you may want to check out the “Testimonials” portion of her website, where satisfied customers endorse her homemade remedies like the Donkey potion (which turns your annoying relative in to a donkey). The site really is the best way to interact with Grunhilda as the Gallery section highlights the unfortunate fates of some of the brave souls who have tried to track her down in person.

If you’re feeling lucky (or just really need a Stink Eye Potion), why not venture over to thelunchwitch.com and learn a little bit more about “the hag with a heart”?

Just don’t say we sent you!
