I use Google Alerts to notify me whenever my name or titles of my work come up. It typically only finds me listed as a link on other people's blogs, which is flattering. I'll occasionally find a book review of one of my published novels. But yesterday I was alerted to something I'd never have imagined.
There's a comic strip on the web with a character named Karen Duvall. I know, what are the odds? Google alerted me to a blog called The Hathor Legacy, and there was an interview with comic strip writer T. Campbell. I didn't read the entire interview, but Mr. or Ms. Campbell writes a strip called Penny & Aggie about teenage girls and high school life. One of the less than savory characters in the comic is Karen Duvall. I guess it's a fairly popular web comic for teens because it has a very active forum. I read a couple of the strips. Not horrible, but not quite ready for newspaper syndication, either.
