Round and round we go.

What started as a simple story for a childrens book, quickly tuned into a 10 book series. Picture books of course. Just when I finished changing all of my descriptions into dialog, along comes tons of info for the book. I get my inspiration at 3 am. I thought the basic content of my books were done.
However, now that I added the new content, it would turn out to be a 17 book series. Way too big for picture books. So now I have to bump it up to a novella.
Now that it's a novella, I have to put descriptions back into the book. I am now at 233 pages. I have a funny feeling, that by the time I finish adding descriptions and a little more content, it will be a novel.
Round and round I go. I have to say, this is my first taste of being a writer, it never gets boring.

Quiet NE, not any more.

New England use to be a nice place to live. We only had to worry about a blizzard every now and then. Not any more. This year, we have had a Tornado, an earthquake and a hurricane. And maybe another hurricane on the way. Not so quiet anymore. I love a good storm, but not when there's destruction and lives lost. It was unbelievable that we got a tornado in Mass, but more unbelievable is the destruction and lost lives of this hurricane. Vermont is devastated by flood waters.
I for one, can't wait to see what tomorrow brings, I hope it is peaceful and this next hurricane goes out to sea. We need a break here.

Big Mistake

I have a curse of trying to be done before I even get started. This was reflected when I wrote my book. I rushed it out in Ebook form and it was not ready. It showed by the sales reports. I am amazed that with 500 downloads, I did not get one review. If people don't like things, they ususally don't mind letting you know. Some even take joy in it. So it was weird to not hear anything.

So learn a lesson from me. Don't rush your book. Let it simmer and grow into the great book it should be.

Well, back to the manuscript.

Finally, my book made it.

My ebook called "Finding Spotalot" made it to the Apple Store, Barns and Knoble, and Kobo. After all this waiting, It finally happened. Smashwords is still negotiating with Amazon so I can get it out there. If you google  the book, you will see about 10 entries.
I can't believe something I wrote can be found on google and in big bookstores. I know I won't be sleeping tonight. I'll be refreshing my internet explorer all night. But that's ok, it's worth the lost sleep to be finally out there. It's time to eat and then I won't be able to type anymore because my fingers will be crossed and I'll be praying for many downloads and some good reviews.

Got Data

I was able to get all my data back from my crashed HD. I tried for days using all the fang-dangled apps that claim to recover data and they did not succeed. I finally added my HD as a secondary drive where my CD drive was and booted it up. Right away Windows tells me there is something wrong with one of my drives and asks to repair it. Well it repaired and I got all my stuff back. The HD is no good, bad sectors. But that's ok, I got my data back.

Have the best of days.

Stess and aging.

They say the best way to age is to with a lot of stress. Just waiting these past few weeks for my books to go on sale at Apple and the big bookstores has aged me about 20 years. If they don't put it out there soon, I will die of old age.

So, Apple and you big bookstores out there. Put my book out there or you will be held responsible for 1 crazy authors death. If you kill Sticky, a lot of people will be pissed off. So hurry up. 

Let me spell it out for you. P  u  t      t  h  e      b  o  o  k  s       o  u  t      t  h  e  r  e.

I hope they can read that.
Have a great day.

A tribute to my mom.

We spent the day yesterday honoring my mom's life, who passed away last month. It was beutiful. We had pictures showing on the wall of her life. It was great to see all of us when we were younger. We had a great feast. The feast was a little too good. I am going to need an extra workout when I hit the gym today. Here's to you mom. I know your happy up there.

Planet of the apes.

I saw the original when it came out and it was awesome. Many years later, I saw it again. It was worth the 5 stars that others have given it. I can't wait for the next one. Great story, great visuals, great acting, great job on the apes.
I highly recommend it.

Any day now my books will be going on to the Amazon and Apple stores. The waiting is killing me. Anticipation, my butt. Maybe if I pace a little longer, I might feel better. I would like to go to sleep for a week. That would be best.
