Once Upon a Wager…c’est finis

August 30th, 2016 4 comments

Once Upon a Wager is finally finished and on my website. There are four free chapters if you want to check it out! I shall be sending out the newsletter to members later today – after I’ve written it. I should have done it weeks ago¬†and somehow spaced it off.

For those who aren’t members the book is now live on Smashwords and Amazon (though it’s not yet up on Barnes and Noble so it will probably be a few days for it to reach all the other online bookstores).

Once Upon a Wager is almost edited…

August 3rd, 2016 4 comments

Once Upon a Wager is almost through the second edit phase. I’m hoping it will be on line in another week, though it depends on how fast the Goblin works his magic. The editing process took longer than I expected. I started Once Upon a Wager eight years ago (working on it in-between other stories). Most of the last four years has been one stupid annoying health issue after another. I learned a lot about myself, like how I can’t write without a working brain.

After I finished the book, I had the feeling it had¬†wrinkles that I couldn’t see (because it was written over such a long length of time). Thankfully the Goblin could see them. I’ve been metaphorically ironing for weeks. I enjoy ironing (yes I’m weird), but not day after day for weeks on end. There, lies madness and an aching arm.

At last I can see the end is near. I still haven’t figured out which story to focus on next. I have so many partly finished/started stories it’s like…do I eat this yummy chocolate or that yummy chocolate? I want to eat them all right now!

I’ll send out a newsletter to let you know (if you’re a member – don’t forget to update your e-mail address). If you’re not a member and you’d like to receive an e-mail letting you know it’s in the shops, just drop me a line and I’ll add you to the list.
