The Story So Far

:: New Site Features

Hey, all! Quick surprise! Go mouse-over any character pic in the characters page for a quick new feature. If you're on the phone, just tap. Easy as that. All cards on the table: the feature isn't fully tested on a mobile device, so let me know of any bugs. Thanks!

— Liam Gibbs, looking forward to TCC this weekend and the sales debut of book 5

:: Book 5 Out!

Good morning, patient audience. Book 5 is now out in print! That's right, you can grab a copy of both the book and the e-book. It's filtering its way through the sales channels, but it should arrive in the next couple days. Unfortunately, the slowpokes will have the e-book by mid-March.

Holler at me with any questions. I'll be updating the sales links in the Series page over the next coming hours/day or two.

— Liam Gibbs, finally with some *good* news!

:: Public Mockery/Appearances

Good news! I'll be making a public spectacle of myself on television once again. Please join me this February 14th (Valentine's) somewhere from 1-2 when I'll be popping up on Channel 22's Daytime Ottawa for a brief interview!

Not only that, but I've been asked to participate in two Q&A panels at the Peterborough Arts Festival on May 5th.

All this because I love yammering on and on.

— Liam Gibbs, if that is my real name

:: Book 5 Near the End

It's been a long road, but book 5 is almost, almost, almost done. I just put the nitpicky final touches on the last draft before order the proof. Keep watching this space for more news...but we're almost there, everyone! We might even beat our March deadline by a bit!

— Liam Gibbs, the real reason chivalry is dead

:: New Junk on the Site

In the coming days/weeks/who-knows-when-because-I'm-a-lousy-judge-of-timing, you'll see some new fandangled features on the site. Some have already rolled out, but there are a few more ideas I've got running. Feel free to not panic! They'll be good.

If you have any suggestions or comments, or if you want to be on the testing team, holler at me at the usual address: I'd love to hear what you think.

— Liam Gibbs, who's up way too late tonight

:: Happy New 2018!

Hola from the coldest month of the year. And that's saying something, cuz I live in Ottawa. And only know the word hola from Spanish.

I'm a little late in my 2017 review, but don't worry, I'll get to it. But I wanted to drop by and tell you 2018 is gonna be amazing. I'm going to be coming atcha from more Comiccons than ever before, so check out the Appearances page on all that news. And, best of all, book 5 is coming out! If that doesn't get you excited, you need an upgrade.

Talk to you soon, but stay snazzy!

— Liam Gibbs, who wishes cereal was its own food group

:: Timeline for Book 5

Good news right around Christmas/Star Wars! I'll be posting a timeline for when I'll release book 5 on the Facebook group really soon. Keep watch over there in the coming days.

Your life is just about to get more awesome.

— Liam Gibbs, who might come through with a promise one day

:: Lookin' a Little Better

Hey, everyone.

I know the colours on the site have been a bit hard to read lately. I've been testing out some new things, but now everything's been a bit more "equalized." I've made the contrast a little less painful, so the legibility should be better now, even if the colours are a bit repetitive over the different pages. If you still have trouble with some sections, let me know and I'll fix it up.

— Liam Gibbs, who uses the Canadian spelling on this site since the letter U's been getting lazy

:: CTV Link

The revolution was televised!

For anybody who isn't a part of the social media bonanza I usually ruin for all mankind, I've posted links to my CTV interview from Monday. But, if you're not into that sort of thing, as some people aren't, you can check out the interview at CTV's web site. The running time is 3:52, but you'll be playing the interview back in your minds for days. Enjoy!

— Liam Gibbs, your one and only stop for nightmare fuel...

:: IAGFFA on Your Telie


You just read that right, and you should apologize to your eyes for making them bulge out in amazement. I'll be appearing this Monday, November 13 at 9:20 on #CTV's The Morning Show, where I'll be grilled about the greatest series ever in historical history, In a Galaxy Far, Far AwRy, the upcoming Ottawa Comiccon, and deep subjects such as beef jerky. Maybe.

So don't forget to tune in and watch. Only 5 days until the most blessed day of your life.

— Liam Gibbs, who will shatter your televisions and reasons for living...

:: New BTWF in Comic

Happy Halloween and all that! Hope everyone ate jjjuuusssstttt enough to stay on this side of a food coma.

I'm dropping by just to let you all know there's a new Before They Were Famous story out, and this one's a little something different. I've heard your comments. I know you're asking when IAGFFA is gonna make the jump to a visual comic medium. And, while it hasn't quite yet, I hope this is enough to bridge the gap for now! Check out the newest story in the Freebies section to see how Smithereens and Brick a one-page comic spread!

And don't worry. I've got another BTWF heading to you shortly. But until then, don't forget to catch up with me at Pop Culture Canada in Trenton this 11/11 and then at Ottawa Comiccon this 11/18 and 11/19.

— Liam Gibbs, who's improving his skills at making toast...

:: IAGFFA at OGM Again!

This past weekend with Ottawa Geek Market was amazing. I got to catch up with all of my old expo friends, I had the pleasure of making new ones, I got to hand out some books to new people, and best of all, I had a ton o' fun. The Sci-fi vs. Fantasy theme was amazing, and best of all, sci-fi won out. (Heheheheh, yyeeeeaahhh.) Can't wait for March when OGM puts heroes against villains.

— Liam Gibbs, a definite sci-fi villain...

:: Bustin' Records

I've received word recently that, on Amazon during the week of August 6, 2017, the first In a Galaxy Far, Far AwRy issue, Serial Fiction Sideshow, ranked, for downloaded e-books:

  • #61 in the category of Space Opera
  • #66 in the category of Humour & Satire > General Humour

And, in the past 30 days, it ranked #1,513 in overall downloaded e-books for any category of any ever!

Thanks to everyone who downloaded the book, who told their friends to download the book, and who passed the word along to someone who downloaded the book. You can't believe the high I'm feeling right now that In a Galaxy Far, Far AwRy is ranking on such a major book site. I'm feeling an ecstasy only felt around double Christmas! Hugs and non-awkward kisses to all of you.

— Liam Gibbs, the rank king...wait, that sounded bad...

:: New Interview With Lazy Alien

Just a heads up that, while at The Real Kingston Toy Con this past Sunday, August 13th, I managed to catch the dudes at Lazy Alien Studios while they were perusing the expo, and I got a short and sweet interview. Check out the interview on their newest video at the 14-minute-21-second mark.

— Liam Gibbs, who always has a special place for Kingston in his heart: the right coronary artery

:: New BTWF

I told you it'd happen...and it happened!

What am I talking about? A new story in the Before They Were Famous book is here. You can stop holding your breath now.

Check out the new goods, "That One That Pincushion Is In," by visiting the Freebies section. And let me know what you think!

Got any ideas about who should show up next? Let me know by sending me a quick, sly e-mail.

— Liam Gibbs, and that e-mail had better be sly!
