sneak preview

So hi! I am here! I have a lot of things to catch up on here, but for now, let me just show you this: a sneak preview of the cover design of my book.



It may not be called "Scutmonkey" anymore, but I'm proud to say that the flavor remains.

More later.

    You have no idea what coming from an Irish Catholic family does to the imagination when you don't wear from someone.

  14. Been reading your blog for years, even before you had the book deal and the minute I read about it I knew it I'm going to have to buy it, and I will. I wasn't even in med school back then, but I am in now. Thanks for the great blog, can't wait to read the book! Greetings from all the way back in Finland. ;)

    CONGRATULATIONS!!!! That is the cutest book cover ever!!!! They found a super cute scut monkey too (b/c some scut monkeys I've seen are ugly).

    Did you get to watch them take the cover photo shoot?

    I wish March 2011 would come sooner

  32. Unfortunately I have to say that the name is the same as more than couple of dozen books with similar themes...

  35. That looks AWESOME, and I would definitely pick it up!

  36. Looks awesome! Can't wait to buy it! Reading doctor blogs makes me SO HAPPY! that I never wanted to be a human doctor, but a veterinarian. And when I gave it my all and I learned that "euthanizing" pets needlessly (i.e. NOT when it's all that's left we can do- ending their suffering selflessly) never feels any less AWFUL!, and I became a lab tech instead...I did the right thing. I'd love to know what a doctor knows and save lives and all... but I like having more of a work-life balance and sleeping regularly. Usuallly...except weekends like this one when I get called back to work 4x! Less than 6 hours 'til my pager gets turned off. Woohoo!

    I hope that you and Joe's schedules get a little less brutal STAT. Hope next vacation is a perfect fit, too. :)
