Vipers’ Nest bug-hunts: DONE!

What I thought would take one day has instead taken over two weeks and more than six butt-in-chair fully focused hours a day each day of those two weeks.

And I know that I will have introduced some new bugs in fixing the old bugs.

It happens. ALWAYS.

But I have to quit now. HAVE to.

This is as good as I can make the book (and at 38,000 words, it’s just under the low-end cutoff for a novel, so I’m not even uncomfortable in calling it a book instead of a story) in the time I have and with the resources I have.

I now have to move on to How to Write Short Stories lessons and How to Write a Novel class planning.

In a perfect universe, everyone would have infinite time and infinite resources in order to create infinite perfection.

My clock ticks loudly, though.

So I’m going to put the book together in Mobi, ePub, and PDF formats, and put it live on all the places I can. Today.

Like I said, I’m going wide from the very beginning with this stuff from now on. Will post a link as soon as I have one for those of you interested.

How does Indie promote your books?

What I want to know is how can I get this awesome book published? It’s not easy living with an alcoholic with adulterous behavior, but through God all things are possible. I do write Fantasy as well.

Hi. Sorry I hadn’t made contact. I have books I’ve written, but haven’t found an agent or publisher for any of them. Yet I keep writing in hopes that someday I will find that publisher. I started out twenty years ago, I’m older and now rocking with the grandma’s… these days rather than write it makes more sense to plan my funeral. I’m 62 years old! I really love to write, and most of my stories are about my life. My husband died last year, I finished my book Three Roses. My marriage was filled with a lot of trials yet I believe that God would change him. We can’t see the end, but if we believe in God’s word we will have the victory.

I totally get it. No book is perfect on publication. There comes a point you have to let it go.

The awesome thing about being indie is that if there are any big booboos, someone will email you. You fix them and republish. With trad publishing, those errors are usually set in stone for the life of the book.
