Hey there, fellow chicken aviators!

We are in the VERY EARLY planning stages of the next book. A lot will change this time, the printer, the format, some logistical and technical issues behind the scenes will be fixed, but fear not Chuck and Julio will stay the same. But we have come to the first big hurdle:

Roost Air HatOne thing Stef and I can’t agree on at the moment is what will be on the cover of the next book. SHould we do more chickens? less chickens? more planes? less planes? put the Corsair on the cover again which has been suggested before numerous times. We are confused and undecided, and on top of that DIVIDED!

We need you guys as a tie-breaker! So we thought we would turn it into yet another contest/raffle. Write us what you think would be funny, or cool, or awesome on the next cover. We will then raffle off 2 “Roost Air” hats from your entries. Multiple entries are allowed since we want as many ideas as possible.

And we will let you know where the hats go in a week from now on Wednesday the 16th.

Hey there, people! Like every year, we’re having a big Thanksgiving sale, in order to incentivize you all to get your Christmas shopping done early, and make sure you get all your Chicken Wings related presents in time. This year, we’ve decided to just make one big event out of the whole thing and have the sales for a few days straight. It starts as of now, and ends with the end of Cyber Monday. This year, we will give you a whopping 25% off your entire order! I know it’s crazy, but what can you expect from people incessantly drawing thousands of little chickens for almost 15 years now … Click on the image below to shop away!

Don’t forget to use the coupon code “BF2015” (without the quotes) during checkout!

Black Friday & Cyber Monday 2015

ViennaComicCon 2015For those with memories as bad as mine, and those who just missed the announcement recently: I will be attending the first ComicCon in Vienna a week from now! Check it out, they even have thrown up an extra page for yours truly!

I will have a table in in the Artist Alley signing and selling books and hopefully talking to some of you guys. Be sure to stop by and say hi! I will also be part of a panel discussion on stage, and have at least one interview scheduled, but I’ll probably be at my table 75% of the time.

The show times are:

Saturday, November 21, 2015: 10:00 – 19:00
Sunday, November 22, 2015: 10:00 – 17:00

So, to quote one of my favorite authors: “Bee there or be a rectangular thynge!” (three bonus points for people who can guess the right book).

And on a different note, I would also like to congratulate Leigh for winning the Corsair Mug raffle! We were happy that we got that many reactions from you all. It’s weird: Sometimes you plan a contest for weeks, paying attention to every little detail etc. and the participation rate is mediocre, and sometimes you just throw a quick idea out there in the spur of the moment, and it totally takes off. Maybe we should do even more flying by the seat of our pants around here than we already do, haha!

As you guys know, Chuck, and Mike, and Stefan all love Corsairs and everything surrounding Corsairs and everything related to this awesome WWII fighter plane, the F4U Corsair. So it might not come as a surprise to you that we have a ton of Corsair Memorabilia and probably a few extras laying around. Let’s do a quick Roost-Air Raffle and give away a free Corsair mug to “aviation up” your kitchen.
(did I use the word “Corsair” enough in a sentence correctly?)

Tell us what your favorite airport is and maybe a quick byline why and we’ll draw a winner next Tuesday!

F4U Corsair Mug

I’ll start: Camarillo, CA – KCMA – because that’s where I soloed my first helicopter, the airport restaurant is awesome, and a chapter of the CAF is based there with lots of cool old planes.

The rules are: Post your comment in the … uhm … “comment” section by clicking on “comment” underneath this post on our website and wait until Tuesday. If your “comment” isn’t airport related, it won’t enter the contest 😉
I think that’s it. Comments posted on facebook are welcome but won’t enter the contest since we don’t want to exclude non-facebook users. And don’t worry, posting a comment on our website doesn’t sign you up for a newsletter, spam, or anything else. Just post your name and email. Doesn’t even need to be your real name but should be your real email if you want to be notified as the winner 😉

We want to see where you guys think the coolest airports are! So…… GO!
