Fore word





Before I ramble on about being the runner-up in the Dundee International Book Prize, please make do with a comic about such things and associated feelings.

Beautifully written and drawn. Iron Maiden (of Honor) in title. New Shoes (of colour) in spirit. Brilliant work!

Brilliant Rae. Keep running forward, it's the only way. N x

Thank you, Jamez! :-D

Rachel Fenton said...

Awe, thanks, Nuala - no holding me back now x

That's beautifully said and drawn, Rachel. I like the philosophy of running on your own.
The father's comments reminded me of a joke, of comedian Peter Russel, I believe, that my husband found to ring very true to his experience as a child:
"Like my father always said: "shut up, I can't listen to the radio!"

You're so refreshingly and artistically honest!

Michelle Elvy said...

Onward!
Good stuff, Rae. And I wanna read your novel.

Rachel Fox said...

A lovely piece of work. Don't forget to send me the Dundee piece too!

Thank you, Lori. That's so sad. Parents can be hurtful. I wish everyone could put the crappy stuff into comics and get some happy from it.

Rachel Fenton said...

Thanks, Kass! I am possibly too honest for my own good...

Rachel Fenton said...

Absolutely! Chers, Michelle - glad you are interested to read it :)

Rachel Fenton said...

Thanks, t'other Rachel - will do!
