Will I See You On Tour?

  • I’ll be at Emerald City Comic Con 2020 at Table P7. I’ll also be doing the keynote speech for ECCC’s professional programming, so if you have a PROFESSIONAL BADGE, stop by the Seattle Public Library. 

  • I’ll also be at TeenBookCon AND the Texas Library Association’s Annual Conference, both of these events are in Houston, TX.
  • And from there??? TRAVEL. Check out ngoziu.com/events for more information.
  • The Pre-Order Push for Sticks & Scones continues! Pre-ordering a book shows a publisher that people are excited for an author’s story. Going to independent bookstores, heading to your local comic book store, and even chatting with librarians in your community—all of this helps! Ask them to stock up on Check, Please! So that you can grab a copy.

Check, Please! might be completed, but I've got two books coming out in 2024!
