Forgot about that but had the time to put in in there....

Part 5. I forgot about that happening in Part 1,  and about that happening on my Blog, yes, my Blog! Put it there in Part 5!

Well, the book is complete as I can get it. Another proof read. Fine tuning. Maybe more descriptive here and there, take out the slack, tighten up on the sails. Let her sail towards the horizon!

Oh, but still, no money in the till!  Humor still languishing, books not selling! Will wait it out. Money is not what it was way back when. Perhaps will focus on a paperback version on Part 4.

Part 4 was magnificient in my view. It was, a super book. Perhaps lack of financing for advertising, did me in. I did garner a 5 on 5 from Readers Choice independent book review. I did the best summer Ebook award from Apple Literary Awards....

Appears not good enough to sell. Hey, if I cannot sell with the latter two results, then something is definitely blowing in the wrong direction against my sails. Enough to say, Give up!

Well, I never give up. I never will say defeat. In any …

No money in the till to produce Part 5. Will wait it out.

Well, Part 5 is just about done. A few more proofreading as mentioned below. The color scheme for the book cover is doing well.

Thing is, the money has run dry. The funding is out, having needing money for Christmas, and other unforseen expenses that added up heavily this past two months.

The book will see the shelf, and will decide after January or February in the new year, whether to produce or not if things go well.

Everybody who works a normal 9 to 5 job goes through economic difficulties at one time or another. Sports can cost allot of money. A cut in overtime, can cost allot of money. Having to pay for care for another in the family, can cost allot of money. Medication, sadly enough. The list goes on, and on.

The tank is empty. The ability to produce this work, is at a standstill for now. More important things to do at the moment. Family expenditures, came about heavily this fall.

Today I watch the snow fall here in New Brunswick on a grass that is unwilling to give up its gree…

Book cover concept just needs coloring.

Book cover is just about complete. The main character swinging from a ceiling fan. The dysfunctional family together, having no fun. The house, mice running around, the house in poor shape. Inside and out.

Really, perhaps the best book cover ever. And completed without the many revisions that had occured in previous works.

The hardest time I had ever had with a book cover was Part 3. Just the dimensions, the aircraft, the loading dock extension in mid air, trying to place everything on the page. Probably could have used more time and better placement. But, it appeared to be good at the time. I still believe it did the job.

As typical, the cover does show a bit what goes on inside the book. A few shadows of the turned pages.

Well, the coloring should go fast enough. That usually takes a few hours. Had difficulty at times with the production companies in placing my cover on the book. The 8 and a half by 11 does not fit usually a downsized pocket book. Wrap around is used. Not fun. We w…

Book cover coming along great!

The book cover for Part 5 is coming along great. Need fillers here and there, but the basic concept is there. The main character is on the top center. The other main characters are there.

Photocopy, the title. Photocopy, as things get better in case I make mistakes. More photocopies as things get more and more further along. It is looking good.

Realization afterwords, that perhaps economics will come into play in producing Part 5. Will have to wait, until things clear on the horizons. A self publishing operation is by no means a money maker. Millions of self publishing people will tell you this story.

I have to wait, until things get better on the economic front here at home, before producing this book. I was actually in better financial position to produce this last year. The unexpected happens, slight of sight, perhaps, not having focus at matters at hands sometimes...

Oh well. See what will happen in November. Relatives tell me of GoFundMe site. Maybe that is an alternative. Not s…
