Hello, all – I’m sorry I haven’t been available for blogging over the past few days. Mostly, it’s been trying to get my PC back up to full strength (and stop playing this) and working on another idea. Some good news: I found a company willing to produce The Dreaded Day Job as an audio book and sell it through Amazon, Audible and I think Barnes and Noble. I’m actually a little excited about this because it’s another way to squeeze some sales out of it, and I think it’s better suited as an audio book (being first person and all) or maybe even a radio play (might work on that rather than “The Maddening Gyre” just because it’s faster to do for me). So – when that’s ready to go, I’ll put up a link on the right hand side and let everyone know.
Speaking of projects – I’m still working on The Marvelous and Malefic Doomsday Medicine Show and I will hopefully get to the end of the second chapter by the end of the week. Since work has figured that having an iPad out and doing real work rather than fielding calls is for some odd reason ‘counter-productive’ (don’t know why one would think that. I get about 1K to 1500 words done a session here at work. That’s highly productive for me), I am going to have to get all the writing done when I get home. It’s not going to be a big problem since the PC is running now, and I’m using Word Online to write the manuscript. Eventually, I plan on getting Office Word, Excel and One Note (provided I can get some sort of traction in getting the lost info off of the old main hard drive…and clean my desk off, too. I know that has nothing to do with hard drives and lost files, but as you can see:
There’s nothing else going on that’s deeply interesting. I’m working on novels galore (and boy will it be a good day) and I am aiming to have something done by year’s end – Nanowrimo, too. I’ve found services for cover art and the only thing I’m lacking is a decent (and very cheap) editor. Most of the people I know who are really good editors are also working writers. No matter how much I entice them with money, chocolate or tea, they’re up to their gills in their own work. Not that I fault them, but there are a few people I really trust with my stuff. I should actually finish something first – which I will do at the end of this month.
Well, thanks for reading. I hope to have some more news for you tomorrow – especially about the audio book. If you want to get the jump on everyone, just look to the right and click on the links for what I have up now.
Hope y’all have a good day.
