I am up to my ears in final edits for Barry the Lonely Reindeer & His Bashful Elf (Willy #4). In the next day or so I’ll be uploading the edited manuscript to Amazon so the final product will go out to readers on November 1st. To those who have pre-ordered the story, thank you! I hope you all enjoy Barry and Ricky’s story. There are quite a few changes I’ve had to make in the past few days. All I can say is thank God for editors. Mine found some things that sounded perfectly fine to my little brain when I was typing the story but don’t sound fine at all in the grand scheme of things. I modeled a secondary character after someone I know well in the real world. Apparently I wrote her too much like that person so I’ve had to tone her down. The last time I modeled a character after a real person in my life I swore I’d never do it again. We see how that worked out. There’s inspiration – like David Garrett who inspired Sy in Eros – and there’s taking a person I really know and writing a character like them. I think I’ll stick to the inspiration pics from here on out. 😉 Both above-mentioned characters turned out to be a pain – in more ways than one.

If you’ve not checked out ‘Barry’ yet, you can find the Amazon pre-order link here and more info here.

Email Subscribers

When my site decided to go Poof! and disappear a few weeks ago, I lost all my email subscribers and their information. I’d called myself backing things up but I obviously didn’t do it well enough. While I do know the email addresses of some of my subscribers because I’ve spoken with them via email, I don’t want to add you guys without your permission. I don’t update a lot but I don’t want you to miss when I do. If you have a problem re-subscribing, let me know and I can manually add you. The offer of a free e-book of your choice for subscribing still stands, even for those who’ve subscribed in the past and already received a free book. You can find all my books and their info here.

On Top Down Under Book Reviews

Congrats to On Top Down Under for their 5th anniversary! Kazza has been one of my biggest supporters and I’ll forever be grateful. If you’ve not checked out the 5 year festivities, pop over there here.

Some Personal Stuff

I apologize for being a little ‘out there’ or not quite ‘out there’ lately. I’ve been dealing with bad headaches again so until I see the doctor again (on the 26th) I just have to deal. I’ve been pretty much nonexistent on social media because I’ve not felt 100%. Hopefully I can get back on track in the coming days.

That’s all for now. Back to the manuscript. 😀

I hope everyone is doing well.

    It is horrible to lose your blog data like that. God forbid that happened to OTDU. I can’t think about that.

    It’s always good having you on and good luck with Barry and his Elf – to think it is # 4, time has flown 🙂

    Take care.

      I’ve been very frustrated over losing my blog. Thankfully I was able to get the new one up pretty quickly. I just hate I lost all the content. It’s a big pain redoing it all.

      Thanks for the good wishes. I can’t believe I’m at #4 in Willy’s World either. Time really has flown by. And to think that I almost didn’t publish #1 because I didn’t think folks would get my sense of humor. I’m really glad I did.

      Thanks for stopping by!
