i made this while mack was napping

OK, so look guys, I made a blog just for the book, so that when stuff starts ramping up in the Spring I don't have to inflict it all upon you here if you don't want to read it. Go look at it and tell me what you think. It's still a work in progress (lots of the pages still have COMING SOON written on them--unfortunately I could not find that little .gif of the worker digging as in the days of Web 1.0, but rest assured that the .gif is in my heart, if not on the page.)

You may also be interested in these two things: a little spiel on what the book is about, and a (very short) excerpt from the first chapter. It has butt holes in it as well as the word "clitoris"! So I guess changing my URL has only made me more porn-y. Oh well, so it goes.

Edited to add: You didn't change your links, did you? Well, good. Because michelleau.com links to the book site now, this blog is still at it's same old address. I know, I'm confused too. I'm just going to leave it alone--either way, you can easily get back to this page, the blog is linked from the sidebar of the book page, and at any rate, it probably makes more sense for the book page to have the custom URL. I AM NOT TOUCHING ANYTHING ELSE. Go to hell, crazy computer demons. Medical school was easier than this.

    dude, the excerpt is awesome. Just FYI, because I want you to look awesome as you are, on your "about the book" page you misspelled degradation. (I believe you spelled it degrEdation.) Just wanted you to know so you can fix it and also because spelling errors make me uncomfortable (I'm an Anal Anesthesiologist)

    The book needs a Facebook page, so people can 'like' it. Harness the social network!

    Really great. Can't wait to read the whole thing. Website design is terrific. Simple, clean, uncluttered, just as it should be.

    Good luck!

    Yay for the excerpt! Quick question, you keep referring to the title of the book as "This Won't Hurt a Bit (and Other White Lies)" but that last part in parentheses isn't on your book cover. But I think I remember seeing it in earlier versions? My guess is that it was deemed superfluous, but I really liked that bit. Anyway, congrats on everything - how do we ensure that we get to read a review of your book in the Wellesley alum magazine?

  16. Blimey, I just read your excerpt, ordered it from Amazon UK and am now super frustrated because I have to wait till May. I've been following your blog for years, Cal was just a tiny baby when I found your blog, and I'm not surprised at all to find your book fascinating. Medical + kid stories wrapped up in good writing - I know I'm paying for the book, but I still feel I should thank you!

  17. As it turns out, it is faster and cheaper to order from Amazon US despite my being in Europe so I changed my order. Maybe this will help other readers.

    Can you make the blog a tab on your book website and vice versa for easier navigation back and forth?
