"'I'm fine!' Percy yelled out as he ran by, followed by a giant screaming bloody murder."

 I need a new way to remind everyone about the Blog Book Party...

 Here ye, Here ye!
 Have you written a book?
Are you planning on indie-publishing it?
Are you writing a book and planning on indie-publishing it?
Then now is your chance to tell others about it!

 Never mind, that sounds like I am announcing a circus. COME SEE THE BEARDED WOMAN AND THE SWORD SWALLOWING MAN!

 I think I will just stick to the way I've been doing it.
 I have a Blog Book Party coming up! Entries are very welcome, and needed. So far I have four.
 You can learn more about it HERE. I even have a button for it, if you can figure out how to get it to work.

 My NaNo count is likely behind. I am at 4268. I like the beginning of the story, but I hit something of a wall yesterday and have been editing all day so haven't even attempted to get around it. Sometimes I hate starting the adventures. I like better to throw the characters right in so they don't have a chance to realize what is happening.
 Like I did with Peter.
 "Oh, by the way," *tosses* "have fun!"

 Normally I would be panicking about my low word count but editing is my main priority this month and if I try and push word counts I might break something - like my head.

 The real reason I am posting today has nothing to do with word counts and parties.
 I am posting to remind everyone that I will be releasing another short story on Monday. (And for those of you who do not like e-books, you needn't fear because when the third short story is out I will be publishing all three in a special paperback edition.)

 The story coming out Monday is titled Reveille and shows some of the things Peter and Tony liked to do while on Base - such as tormenting people. This story will NOT be needed to understand what is going on in the book, but is just for fun. 
 I will now remind you that Lisbeth's Choice is a prequel and was published so that you might understand better what is happening in the book. (Not saying that you HAVE to buy it, just giving you a heads up.) 

 I'm also considering releasing the paperback, short story collection this month. Thoughts on this? Would you like to see it more this month or next?

 And that is all. You will get to see the Reveille cover on Monday - because I like to be evil like that. And, in 11 days, the trailer!

 Now I am going to get back to my editing. 




  1. I would definitely love to see the short story collection this month... Or at least before the book is released. I decided to wait until the paperback collection to read the stories... And I'm so curious!

  2. Have you found out yet if Lisbeth's Choice has made it to the NOOKstore? I've been lurking but NaNo means I'm not doing much lurking.

  3. I'd love to read those short stories - and the main book - but like you have my book, they're on my list of "books to buy when I have money."

  4. Ah, the blog party thing...well, er...I'm not considering indie-publishing... So there lies the problem... Otherwise, I'm in!
    And I'm waiting for paperback! Woot! Can't wait till its all out.

  5. I want to read THE book before the short-stories. And I want to see the trailer (thank you for FINALLY ending the torture and showing us the book cover!!). And, like Pure Grace above, I'm not considering indie-publishing either. So I'm out for that one.

    Did you get my email about the blog-button? I'd be happy to set it up for you, if you like, and just email the html code back! Up to you. :)

  6. I hate begining adventures too. It is so much easier to just throw your characters right into a battle or something *Grin*

    Good luck with the editing. Editing isn't all it's cracked up to be... I should know :D

    I think Doctor Who has officially broken my heart

    God Bless

  7. Oh, I am glad you're going to release the short stories as an actual *book* book. I think I shall wait and buy them that way. I'm looking forward to the trailer for Haphazardly Improbable.

    I hope you get all your editing straigtened out. Literary abandon is not so easy as it sounds. I know starting over on a nano story is a bit drastic, but it was worth it, since my story is flowing much better now. My word count is still low, but it is early in the month, and I am not too worried about that

  8. I'd absolutely join your blog party, but I'm afraid I'm not thinking about indie-publishing at the moment. Just focusing on writing!

    Good luck with your editing.

  9. Hi, Jack. I know what you mean. The beginning is always the hardest part of the story for me. I just want to get to the 'good stuff'...

    I wanted to tell you that your book cover looks great! I would totally pick it up and flip through it! (It's the bomber jacket. *Nod* There's just something about a bomber jacket:)You did a very nice job.

    I'm glad you're releasing the three short stories in real book form. Not that I have anything against eBooks, per-say, I just like paper better. Paper is my friend! :)
