So Honored to be Included in the October Issue of
The Relatable Voice Magazine
The RV podcast
-- host Lucia Matuonto drives her guests around in a virtual RV --
has been quite successful in the last year, so to celebrate, they
have decided to expand into magazine publishing. Just like the
podcast, it will cover a variety of topics, but more specifically:
relatable topics. It will also be a way to access all the podcast
episodes, and get to know its guests even further. This was a way
for creator Lucia Matuonto to give back to her listeners and build
on The RV community.
Ina is proud to
have a new short story created for the October issue, titled,
"If Only Fiona
Cat would do her job."
The issue is
aimed at giving readers something to smile about. A noble objective
in today's chaotic times, right? Thanks,
Lucia Matuanto, for inviting me to participate. It is truly an
honor to be included among the fascinating, and varied writers on

partnership between author and publisher? Or is it just
Can a writer make real money apart from

YOU ARE WHO YOU EAT, The Revolutionary New Cannibal
Dedini honored in exhibit at cartoon museum
The Billy Ireland
Cartoon Library & Museum Dedini Exhibit, February 13 – May 22, 2016
Ohio, February 23, 2016 – Eldon Dedini, the late Esquire, Playboy,
The New Yorker and Disney cartoonist whose work lavishly illustrates
the new book, You Are Who You Eat, is being honored by the Billy
Ireland Library & Museum at Ohio State University at the exhibit
entitled, “Dedini: The Art of Humor." Damon Jaggers, Director, says of
our mission is as one that brings to light the contributions of artists
to the culture of our community.
Ina Silvert Hillebrandt, author of
You Are Who You Eat, says about Dedini and the exhibit:
was a delightful man. Not only funny and terrifically talented as an
artist, he was also a generous, warm human being. I am honored to have
the book included in the Dedini collection by Jenny Robb, Curator, and
the other folks at the Ireland. And I like to think that though he is
not here to see the fruits of his labors on our project in the flesh,
Eldon is up there somewhere, smiling. And dining well.

YOU ARE WHO YOU EAT, The Revolutionary new
Cartoons, Jokes and
Diet Tips for the Cannibal – and Civilian -- Connoisseur
Los Angeles, CA, February 1, 2016– Book Release Date: June 8, 2016.
What is You Are Who You Eat? Tongue in cheek diet and lifestyle
tips by former chubby pre-teen-cum-Weight-Watchers-consultant Ina
Silvert Hillebrandt, with social satire and cannibal jokes by
Hillebrandt and her Uncle Dan. Plus, a liberal dose of never before
released cartoons by the late Dedini, whose art regularly appeared in
The New Yorker, Playboy, Esquire and other journals and venues
The book is intended to share real
diet tips with readers, but more importantly, to make people laugh.
Which in reality author Hillebrandt feels is also a great weight control
tool. To quote her:
I love it when I can help people who
come up to me with questions such as, ‘What’s the right food for a young
athlete before a game?’ Answer: ‘We’ve learned that carbo loading is
important for enhancing an athlete’s performance. So I’d suggest
something starchy, like a Nun.’
