Third draft nearly done.

The third draft is nearly done,  as I have only to sift through 25 pages of material.

It is tough when going through it again. I added more depth, but the most important element being clarity to the writings. It will be a much more, pronounced, better flow than ever before.

This book should reach 260 pages, in approximate length if things go correctly. The book cover is complete as noted below. The other half instructed me on making the cover darker with the color schemes, and to fill in the title with certain colors such as green. Green did not fit the direction of the book. It needed excitement.

The height to where the action takes place, tells of the urgency of the situation. The world is located down below, adds to what is at stake. It is a great book cover, and it is drawn out by hand. Although I do not have the steadiest hand for cartooning, it turned out with much imagination and direction as to what is happening in the book.

I hope to be done the 3rd draft this week, but with my busy schedule, it may not be attainable. I need to go back and correct much of the text, as I placed in some added humor and elements of suspense.

This is why I sometimes fret at reading through it again and again. It leaves me no choice but to change direction, or to add allot of elements to recharge the book to a higher voltage of humor.

Till next time..

My Dog has ate a Ferrero Rocher.

I had only went into a store to buy a few Ferrero Rocher packages of chocolates... Then, I went into the next store, not realizing that I left the small, 3 chocolates per package, delicious Rochers in my middle vehicle organizer. On the way back, I did not even notice.

I had got out of my vehicle, and only when I went to search for something on that side, it all came together. The package was torn, with only one individually wrapped Ferro Rocher out of its packaging. She had selected one, and even tore the golden foil paper from the once existing Rocher Chocolate.

I looked over at my Dog. This was a little too much for me to handle. I yelled "Pushkin! You ate one of my Ferrero Rocher!"  Is she the only dog in the world that probably ate a Ferrero Rocher.

Good point in standing, she actually thought the process through. She did not destroy the three chocolates in the package, all in one bite. She used her incisors, exactly as a surgeon would, to take apart the package from t…

The Self Publishing 12 days of Christmas for 95 % of us...

What does Christmas mean for the majority of us self published authors. I think of the 12 days of self publishing... Scrooge approved.

1. The usual "Gesh, I didn't know you wrote a book! Where did you find time for that" from festive long lost friends or relatives.

2. When your manly friends tell you "Oh, I did'nt have time to read your books, but my wife read it and she sure likes it... But she likes just about anything she reads"

3. Where can I get a copy of that. I don't got a credit card so I can't order it online... Do you got any free copies...

4. The wife tells you "Why are you spending so much time on that thing. You got wood to split!"

5. Your son tells you "You should have put more pictures in that novel, dad. Maybe then I would have read it"

6. Your local library tells you "Oh, what a cute little book... We will put it way up there on the top shelf where it will keep the dust from falling on the traditional books"
