Finished the Manuscript For The Parkinson's "Graphic Novel". Now for the Hard Part (Cross-post from Off& On)

I put on a burst of unparkinson's-like speed yesterday and finished the manuscript of "A Mixed Cursing" That was fun. Now begins the task of finding a way to get it published. There are a number of avenues as the publishing industry writhes and convulses with the changes wrought by that unbottled genie the World Wide Web. "Come into my parlor", said the spider to the fly... I will post news of the progress of the book-to-be as it develops.

In the meantime, this blog will return to its old self, albeit with (I hope) occasional excited notes about the progress of the manuscript to finished form and publication. Below are the three pages of the post-script for your feedback. Critical comments welcome! Bonus points for those who spot the refrences to Albert Einstein and Douglas Adams :) (click on images to enlarge.)


  1. Congrats! That's great news. It's good and with a little luck should sell itself.

  2. Thanks Steve. It's all your fault!


  3. Hi Peter:

    I stumbled onto your marvelous website in a search for some of your old ADN cartoons. Since you asked for feedback, The Parkinson's book "Postscript" section is wonderful, touching, moving and very thought-provoking. I am going to share it with others--and I very much look forward to the book.

    1. Thanks for the thoughtful response, Gunnar. It' s encouraging. I will be sending the MS off to seek its fortune soon, will keep people abreast of significant developments on the blog. Did you find the edit cartoons you were after? Many are archived at the Association of American Editorial Cartoonists site (AAEC).
