Congrats on the new writing community!

Dear lord, is that a smiley beating a dead horse I see? I MUST USE IT:

dead horse

I'm a writer and illustrator whose first book got published in a roundabout way (publisher called me and asked me to write the book). My second book is also roundabout -- I got asked to ILLUSTRATE a picture book written by actor/comedian/writer Michael Ian Black...and this offer came out of a rejection.

Hello and welcome, Debbie! What great stories! Congratulations, and thanks for helping round us out! That great smiley is one of inkslinger's finds, whom we've already nicknamed "inky." We'll have to come up with another one for you (inkyg, maybe?) Hope you're not freezing up there....

Ahhh! Debbie Ohi! I love your comics!

I was reading on your blog that you went to Penguin - what's it like?

*imagines magical factory where pixies write enchanted contracts with sparkley ink for lucky writers*

I'm really glad you joined. I'm from CANADA too. I need to get us a better smiley flag... it looks kinda tiny next to that awesome American one, eh?

welcome
