Just got my new paperback proof for World's End in the mail today. I've still got to look it over really good before I approve it. If all goes well, it should be available to purchase once again this weekend.

I've been formatting my prequel series to possibly be released as paperbacks also. Not sure that they would sell really well being only about 110 to 181 pages long. What are your thoughts on that?

My current W.I.P. is still being read and edited to get ready to pick up the writing once again. It's not quite half way completed, so it will be a while before it gets to see the light of day.

I just ordered my paperback proof. If all goes well, World's End will once again be available in paperback.

I need to get back to editing my newest W.I.P. as soon as I can. I need to do a lot more writing on it, but I also need to get a bit of editing done in the process.

Reviewed my digital proof for the 3rd edition paperback of World's End. I had to fix a little problem, so it will be at least another day before it's going to be able to be released. As far as I know, even the 2nd edition paperback can't be bought while I'm updating it to the 3rd edition.

I forgot how much fun it was to produce a paperback version. I've updated my novel, World's End, and now it's been a headache to get the paperback properly formatted. I'm getting close, but it's not a picnic. I need to get that done so I can get back to my current W.I.P. novel.

I'm making progress with the paperback version of World's End. It's a little more difficult to get the formatting just right for a paperback. I think I have it pretty close to how I want it to look.

I just uploaded the new 3rd edition of World's End to Amazon. It is now about 75,000 words, and has a new cover. Please look for it to go live in the next day or so. Thanks to everyone for their patience reading about this novel.

I also uploaded an update to Cabin Honeymoon, although it's just a small thing or two. Nothing new in the story, just some links at the end of it.

I'm getting closer with the new edit for World's End. I only have one more chapter to go through, and then a good look over to make sure everything looks okay.

That is good news, since that means I can start to really work on my next novel, the pro football one. Still undecided on a title right now. But I did think of a good cover idea, which is a little early, the novel only has about 30,000 words, and it will likely be about 70,000 words. I hope I can get it done before football season starts.

Is everyone ready for the polar vortex again? I think it will be a welcome relief. I'd like to have a mild day to cut the grass.

Editing of World's End, and my newest W.I.P. is going pretty good. I still hope to have the 3rd edition of World's End up and live by the weekend.

I got another 2 chapters re-edited for the 3rd edition of World's End. 4 more chapters to go. I'm shooting for getting them done this week sometime. I hope I can set it up to where it will be available for everyone who already has it to get the newer version.

Maybe some people that didn't like it before might like it with the more polished editing that I'm doing to it now.

I just got another 1 star review for World's End. This one clearly could have been avoided. Why don't people look inside and read a little bit before they buy something. If they thought it was poorly written, they would have seen that in the free preview. I know I'm not the greatest writer in the world, but reading a small sample would have kept this person from buying it and giving me a dreaded bad review.

My takeaway from that is this, I need to get my 3rd edition finished and up soon. It will fix a lot of the bad writing, although not all of it. I'd need a professional editor to do that.

Thanks for reading my rant of the day.

Editing my newest novel is proving to be a lot more work than I originally thought. I wrote a good portion of it in present tense, and mixed in some past tense. The current edit is to make it all past tense, like my other books are, except my short story, "Cabin Honeymoon", it's in present tense.

At least when I get all of it edited into past tense, I will be caught up with it, and ready to continue writing the rest of it.

Part of my 2014 goals has been finished with the release of "Fall Of An Empire". Now I am editing "World's End" to be released as a 3rd edition.

Another project that has been on hold for a while now, since 2012, is a professional football themed novel. I am now in the stage of reading it, and editing as I go, to get back into it. It's a little over 30,000 words, and probably needs another 40,000 words or so, to tell the story.

Today I find myself doing some final editing for the 3rd edition of World's End. It's been a long tedious process, but I feel I owe it to the readers to present the best novel I can. I hope it will be done before the end of the month.

I also find myself re-thinking the football novel I've been getting back into writing. I'm thinking about doing it as a first person story, and not my usual 3rd person style of writing.

What are your thoughts on the different writing styles?

Now that Fall Of An Empire is officially released, I need to work on other projects. Fall Of An Empire is the fourth story of my series, and not necessarily the last one. It is the last one for a while, that much I can say. It could be the last one period, only time will tell.

My next work is about a pro football quarterback trying to make a comeback after a few years of retirement. Currently, I'm about 30,000 words into it. All written in 2012, so I've got read it through to see where I need to pick it up at. I'm hoping for a release later this year.
