YOU MAY GET IT!
Hello Good People
And there I was wishing for a bit of action. Went to bed Monday night, awoke Tuesday morning with a real pain in my neck, left side in particular; couldn’t turn my head to the left. I must have slept awkwardly. So, I was up early. I powered up my laptop, to find I had an email and attachment from Smiley. The final, Kindle-ready copy of my book ‘PROMETHEUS ASCENDING’. There were a few correction details to deal with, so, I decided to proof-read the full manuscript; all 483 pages of it!
As Smiley is off on holiday tomorrow (Thursday), it was clear I should put my foot on the gas, so, I spent the better part of ten hours in front of the laptop, painful neck an’ all. I was shattered when it was done. I then had to email an updated list of corrections; nothing dramatic.
It was strange reading ‘PROM’. Even as I did so, I remember the Jimmy Savile radio ‘Speakeasy’ programme on the subject, back in 1974, and how, over the years, traipsing from one accommodation to the next, taking all my research stuff (on the book) with me as I continued on my journey through life.
I ‘phoned Smiley tonight. ‘PROM’ may be put forward to Kindle tonight, or tomorrow morning. It’ll take a few days to be screened; accepted or rejected. Possibly also ‘GEORGE’ 2, although that may have to wait for Smiley’s return. It also seems we have to suggest what category ‘PROM’ should go in. We came up with Medical Fiction/Horror/ ‘HardScience’. Three categories Kindle offer.
Forty-odd years of creative effort almost concluded. Weird.
When Smiley’s back, we’ll home in on the two ‘Shadow’ novellas and have them done, dusted and on Kindle in time for Christmas. We’ll also put on our thinking caps as regards putting an ad on Facebook, to try and tell the world at large about my literary efforts on Kindle. It never ends.
Well, that’s it. And now a Summer break. I’ll be back about the middle of August. Just in time for the footie season. Now there’s FICTION! Aaaarrgghhhhh!!
That’s it. ‘Bye for now.
NB: Three cheers for Smiley!!
