my first novel

Well, not so much a novel as a short story.

I’ve been working on this story for a few years now. I’ve drawn and redrawn the images. I’ve written and rewritten the story.

I shared the book cover a while back. Remember this?

Well, I finally put together a small mocked up (dummy) version of the complete book. I haven’t painted all of the images yet…but here are two. I still see lots of little things that need “fixed” before I get to a final version.

I won’t go into a lot of the details but things “float” … as in there’s no gravity.

Sometimes, I think I want to try and get it published but I don’t think I can handle all the rejection.

Maybe I’ll just finish the pages (paint them, I mean) then do a self-publish book.

Just for me.

And one for my grandson. He was the model for the main character. I have tons of photos of him in various “floating” positions!

He’s a good sport. If ever I get published, I will have to dedicate it to him ☺


  1. I think that your book is a wonderful idea - Love the pages you've already mocked up!! Great job!

  2. Well, from seeing/reading this I say go for it! What have you got to lose? You won't be any worse off than you are now if they say no.

  3. oh, this looks great! Don't think of rejection, just go for it!

  4. And children need to know that Mondays can be magical, before we teach them to dread them! :)
