Hello Good People
I had my catch-up call with Smiley last night, so quite a lot to get through. However, first – MIND’SFLIGHT. As of last night, the website has received 13,268 hits. It just keeps rolling along and UP!
Now, here’s a listing of other PT-titbits:
The ‘Shadow’ novellas should go on Kindle late June/early July.
We’re also preparing for the last collection of short stories (‘GONE’), to go on Nov/Dec. My idea is to get it all wrapped up early, so come the time, Smiley just does the biz and on it goes. The cover illustration will be either a detached eyeball, with a suitable comment underneath, or a very, very evil looking teddy bear. We’ll see. Mmmmmm.
The publisher saga continues. Without boring you, I’ve also submitted ‘GEORGE’. I’d told the sub-Editor I deal with about the little fella and she invited me to send something in. I suggested we wait until ‘PROM’ was sorted, one way or the other. Even so, after thinking it over for a day, I’ve sent in copies of the first and the final stories, along with a coloured illustration of the rascal: the dog, that is, not me!
Come 2016, and we’re going to think about how to advertise my Kindle efforts.
The big surprise for me is in the fact that Smiley proof-reads my efforts. As she’s in the world of academe, I’m both most grateful and somewhat relieved. My spelling and syntax leaves something to be desired.
Of course, in all of the above, one thing can blow most of it way off course; IF the publishing house decides to go with ‘PROM’ (and/or ‘GEORGE’). As I think I’ve already noted, come the end of June, I will push for a decision, one way or the other.
Finally, in the background, knowledge that a week from today, my little flat will be turned upside down and inside out, as the Council set about giving me a new bathroom and kitchen. Three weeks of mayhem. Joy, oh joy!
That’s it for now.
Note: This blog site is a bit odd for me. I thoroughly enjoy doing it, but I never get feedback. It’s like all my ramblings vanish in a Black Hole and that’s
that. Mind you, they come from a Black Hole. It’s called my mind! If you wish to, you can always pass comment via my email: fox.pro@bt
