My wife Rhonda spent the last few years writing a book called Rachel’s Manifesto. It’s a book for young adult girls about value. The main character goes through a metamorphosis by evaluating her worth without a reference to how others view her, most specifically, her boyfriend who would like to have sex with her.
My wife wrote a book about sex.
Apparently, this came as a bit of a shock to her as we were sitting in the food court planning out some of the finer details of the book launch. She said: “I can’t believe I wrote a book about sex. What if people read it?” She’s the funny one in our relationship.
Writing is a tough process, speaking purely from an observer’s viewpoint. Agonizing over structure, plot, character development and editorial reviews can take a bit of a toll on a writer. But last spring, it was ready. So we spent the summer getting the book printed and creating a companion journal that helps young girls (or boys for that matter) discover who they are.
She’s my favourite author. And probably the most attractive writer in the history of the world, so I put aside my own projects (Pastor Kenny) in order to help get hers up and running.
You’re all invited to the book launch on October 8th, 2011 at Cover to Cover Books at 630 Pinewood Road in Riverview, NB to get a signed copy from the author. I’m also willing to draw Pastor Kenny in any books that are purchased. The value is sure to go through the roof with that addition.
Thank you all for your patience over the summer. I’ll get back to my regular comic schedule of “whenever I feel like it” really soon.
