The reasons are good--very good in fact. I've got lots of terrific projects coming in. In a stunning show of confidence, my publisher has ordered books 3 and 4 in my historical graphic novel series! This was unexpected. I was sure the publisher would apply the usual Wait-and-See-Sales tactic before extending the series. But apparently the first two books went over extremely well at their sales and publicity meetings. So it's game on for the next two books!
In fact, the manuscript for book #3 is due in two and a half weeks. Yikes!
The bible is going strong. I'm in the book of Matthew and this week I'll pass the halfway mark on the entire job. Whopeee! Today I'm illustrating the concept of forgiving someone "Seven times seventy times." Where's my calculator, I don't even know how many that is...is it 140? That sounds right.
In any case the gaps will keep coming. We're very close to the end of the Taco Hell story. Think of these gaps as a way to extend the grand finale--sort of like in the Lion King, when Scar and Simba fight in cheesy slo-mo. The gaps are the cheesy slo-mo.
