Migranes and the FINAL 12 pages! Home stretch, everyone!
HEY THERE FRIENDS, ALLIES, AND BACKERS!
I know it's been a while since you've heard from me. The reason for this is that my migraines reached a completely disabling frequency, and I finally broke under their pressure. I worked lots of extra shifts at work and saved up money to go see several doctors. I received a great deal of help, and discovered that over the past year I've slowly become highly allergic to gluten! In fact, since I stopped eating gluten, my migranes have become rare (which is the most relieving feeling I've ever felt). I could talk about migranes and gluten forever, but instead I'll stop. I'm writing a comic about it on the side, if you are interested.
BUT GUESS WHAT???
ONLY 12 PAGES LEFT! That's right folks, 12 pages of glorious black and white good ol'fashioned comic book left until I send you your completely finished copy of SNOWBIRD! I'm looking to print this book in MARCH, hopefully reaching your doorstep in APRIL. (Funny ,right? I was one complete year off from my estimated date of arrival!! Ahhahahahaha....ha.)
But WAIT, Erin... the story isn't even close to being over! You said you were going to write about so much more than this!
That's right, folks. It's because I'm going to write two books. Woahhhh! Big news, actually. There are many reasons for this- but one of the big reasons is that I had no idea how long a good book actually takes. Not only the length to write it, but the length of pages needed to tell a good story. There are about 250 pages of story I want to write. But these 100 pages are going to close the story of my vulnerabilities, history, and mental health and the next book will be about the story of what happened that winter.
Inbetween writing both books, I'm going to take a 5 month break. I'm going to paint pictures, go on a trip, and then come back for another year of writing. I think it's going to be amazing, you'll see.
Not only that, but STILL, my drawings are better than ever before!
Anyways, I don't want to take up too much of your time. I've got to go keep drawing. Prepare to hear from me soon! It's almost over!!!
