The Rollercoaster

Thank you all for the incredible support of my BBC piece last month. It got almost one million hits on its launch day and has clocked up over 200,000 more, plus over 4000 shares on social media. I’ve since talked about my work on Russia TV (see below), my comics journalism process on the BBC (see here) and am speaking tomorrow on BYU radio tomorrow at 2pm GMT tomorrow (Weds).  I’ll post links to more interviews about my process tomorrow. Not to mention updating the neglected production blog. For those of you interested in following the stories that are new to the site, you can get your hands on a copy here.

I know I’m a little tardy in responding to this incredible reaction, but the same week the piece launched my brave mother-in-law lost her battle with acute myloid leukemia, which meant an early return from Nepal to be with my family in the UK. RIP Linda. A true warrior woman (she was from Yorkshire after all) who is deeply missed.

Above is the first return to normality in a while and is a sample tier in Nepali of one of the other many true survivor stories I’m turning into comics. This one focuses on domestic servitude of a young boy who was promised schooling in exchange for working as a live-in servant. Often, as is the case here, doing the job AND living the life of a schoolboy takes its toll and he was forced to leave school to concentrate on work around his owner’s house instead, with violent repercussions when he neglected his duties.
