The Dewey Donation System, a site for organizing and publicizing donations of books to libraries in need, seems like it would be a natural match with Unshelved. And given the wide variety of readership of people who are fond of Dewey in either media, it could be good synergistic publicity for both.

Just a thought. And pimping donations to a good cause (2 of them this year, in fact).

Not sure what you're suggesting. Are you saying we ought to do comics about it? We don't usually comics about such specific things... but we could certainly blog it.

Blogging about it would be good. Perhaps the donation of a custom strip or poster to the cause, for promotional purposes. Perhaps a mention in one of your banner ads (if it's not all pre-booked). Maybe even extending the size of the comic as published to add a line at the bottom of the strip, just mentioning the site.

And definitely getting in touch with the DDS folks, to see if helping them could help your own promotion. Because I can state, with some confidence, that there's not as much crossover between the two crowds as there could be.

I would say something like "My partner and I have an online comic strip called "Unshelved" which reaches N people a day, and features a character named Dewey who works in a library. The coincidences are striking, and perhaps we can exploit them to our mutual benefit. We should talk."

Just some rough ideas. I like playing yenta sometimes.
