Well, that is an interesting question.
I am working hard, and have now gotten a temporary job, os things will slow down a little.
There are, as you may have figured out, several projects on the go, as well as wrestling with work and the Job Centre.
I decided that in order to attempt to motor through the current typing project, I legged it off to one of the two local Starbucks, with my laptop, and a ream of pages that need typing up. I found that I make great progress that way, especially as there is no TV to distract me.
Well, enough distractions here… I am still going on, hopefully, more updates and progress reports to come soon!
And here we have the truth in the only way that actually sinks in…. The ape has done it again 😉
On the advice of our Ape, I have decided to pull back the digital copies of The Men of Hwitern, ready for the release of The Grey Book, and it is part of that novel.
It is still available on Amazon, at a much reduced price, and the print options are still available, for those who would like it, but they are already at minimum price. Therefore, if you have purchased a copy of The Men of Hwitern and would like to upgrade to The Grey Book, upon release, please contact me.
I am still beavering away on these projects, and a new project as well, this time some Science Fiction.
The last one is most definitely me!
I have finished both the Red Pen Edit, and incorporating the changes and edits as well as minor formatting changes.
The manuscript has been sent off for the Ape’s highly valued opinion. Therefore, the only thing I can do for now is to wait, and see what changes I need to make, and whether the work is as good as I hope 🙂
Over to you Chris 🙂
One Ape who enjoys, not only his own work, but the work of others, and bends over to help them as well.
I would ask you to remember not to take advantage of his generous nature though. There are only so many banana’s he can eat 😉
Now, before they think you’ve gone off your rocker, remember this is the draft post.
Well, the “first” piece of work that I started in Dad’s rememberance was Patterns of the Mind.
This came back today from my proof reader. A very close friend of mine, who I have known for years. For some reason (and luckily for me) he decided to print it out and write on it with PEN! I know, such an ancient way! Anyway, he mailed the manuscript back to me today and I was able to make the needed changes, and it is now sitting in pieces on the Smashwords Website, and pending review through KDP.
Yes, this is where I got the idea of printing out “The Grey Book” from. My word is it working well. I am motoring through making the changes and notes I need to much faster and more accurately than I would be able to just reading it on the comp screen again.
After running a test print, on standard paper, with standard ink, this combo really did work well, even with the dodgy bleeds due to being an inkjet printer on cheap paper.
Hopefully, you will enjoy this piece as much as I did.
Noo….. Don’t press the publish button yet, you don’t have a title….. Too late…. *facepalm*
Updated: – Live on Amazon store Now, and hopefully distributed through Smashwords soon.
