Post title

I finished chapter eight of ADC last week, did about 1,000 words on Saturday. The last 150 words should really have been the beginning of chapter nine, so I added a bit more and rewrote the end to make it the beginning of chapter nine. Am now putting a free sample of UAA on Wattpad. Got another encouraging comment for The Twenty Four. I think I will be about 10,000 words short for The Twenty Four. I don't know whether to bulk it up, add more to the beginning or to the end.

Meet the Authors

I attended the Meet the Authors conference at the Parvin, Haxby near York. Jack Everett was there as well as publishers Stairwell Books and Petan Books. Networked and listened to the seminars. Rohan said I can use his name for a character in one of my books as long as he dies heroically or marries and lives happily ever after. Managed to write 300 words of chapter 8 of ADC and 200 words of The 24 today.

C30 C60 C90 GO!

Saw a man today who had a VW camper van in his drive. He said he had to replace all of the panels on it. He has had a few camper vans before. He also said he has had seven Beetles. I said, "You should get the exterminators around for that!"

Managed to write nearly 1,000 words of chapter seven of ADC. I may be able to do some tomorrow, we shall have to see. Have kept up with the serialisation of The 24, which means I am about half way through.

Also met a woman today who liked Victorian Historical Fiction. I told her I've written some steampunk but she said she didn't like SF.

Within Striking Distance

I need to write another 600 words to finish chapter 6 of ADC. Written just over 5 chapters of The 24. Also managed to type in another 500 words of Paradox Jones. This blog text editor does not appear to be working properly so I am typing it in as HTML. My wife tells me my book covers should look more professional. What do you think? Is it affecting sales? I could make the lettering for Ground Hog War look more like a Victor annual. I was not happy with the Up And Away cover, I did it in inks on Bristol board but couldn't seem to get enough detail on it. I might try copying the style of some Super hero graphic novels. The Detective One cover was really for Wattpad as a quickie.
