Hello Good People
Well, ‘The Devil’s Gunfighter’ is now completed – proof readings an’ all.
I don’t know if I told you the ‘suite’ story, but it won’t hurt to tell it once more. I had completed the story ‘BLOOD’, and SHMBO had got it on to Kindle. Some weeks after, I had a read of my ‘hard copy’. Can you imagine my horror on finding that once, in the using of the word ‘suite’, I had mis-spelt it S-W-E-E-T!! I mean, there are typing errors and there are typing errors!! I was beside myself, and Smiley (aka SHMBO) was on holiday. I decided to ask her to have removed the copy of ‘BLOOD’ on Kindle, and replace it with a corrected copy that I’d send over to her. Well, in the course of time, upon Smiley’s return, the matter was resolved: she simply corrected the word directly on the Kindle copy. Smart cookie, Smiley. It seems that proof reading is no guarantee of final correctness.
As to Smiley, she wasn’t a happy bunny when she got back from her holiday. Apart from me to contend with, she’d picked up a bug and her laptop had upped and “died”. It never rains, huh. I’m glad to report that now SHMBO is much improved, bless her woolly little socks (if she wears any).
With ‘Gunfighter’ now done, I have to state, once again, that the ‘sheet’ in my mind is blank; the ‘Imagination Box’ empty. Still, who knows, I may wake up one morning with another story in my mind. We shall see.
