working on books!

I have two books that are in production right now, one is a must finish, the second of the volumes of 2007 comics, it’s halfway done and should be finished any day now, should. Trouble is, years ago I wrote a short novel, really a novella, oh, who am I kidding, a novelette. It needed some mad, practically epic, editing, which I started doing, because that’s where my head wanted to be, that part was fun. I want to add a bit more to it, there’s a couple of holes in the plot that I want to work out, and I tossed around the idea of turning the whole shebang into a graphic novel. That would be really cool, I think, probably. But fifty pages of graphic novel, can I do it? Do I have the stamina? The capabilities? Should I just throw it into a book form and call it a day? I’m trying to decide and am carrying the manuscript around with me, pulling it out and reading it occasionally, I must make up my mind, soon. And in the meantime, shouldn’t I be finishing the second volume of 2007 comics, mustn’t I?

Here’s the good news, as members, when that Novella/graphic novel/novelette is done, you’ll get to read it first, promise. As soon as it heads to the printers, I’ll send you a download button, ’cause you’re the best, I adore you, and appreciate you signing up.

This comic is from 2010…enjoy!

OB Conference

This is, of course, an imagined conference. I’m sure if big OB conferences happen they don’t have cartoonists give speeches, or “facilitate dialogues”, or rabble rouse. But, wouldn’t it be cool to ask them en masse, is a 100% cesarean rate the goal? really?

C-Sections For Everyone!

The is from a discussion Dr. Lisa and Jillian had on the Doctors the other day. Which is worse, Natural Birth or Cesarean? This is not a show I generally watch, they would need a holistic crunchy-granola healer and a midwife added to their cast to make it close to palatable for me. I’m thinking the odds of that happening are nil. And frankly, when I heard the name Dr. Lisa was bad-mouthing natural birth I thought everyone was talking about another Dr. Who-Will-Not-Be-Named who is prone to the same thing, so come to find out there’s two. Which means they’re multiplying, like a horror movie.
