Two posts in one: Book 3 is done, and I need Facebook likes

I only like posting once a day here, if possible, because I know folks get emailed every time. So for the first time ever on this blog, I’m harnessing the Power of Cyberspace and merging two posts into one. Maybe five years from now, when people are merging four and even five posts together, we’ll all look back and laugh. But for now, this is cutting edge stuff!

Post 1: Facebook likes

I’m doing a little paid Facebook advertising ($$), and my reach is based on the number of likes on my page. So I could really use more likes. Am I asking for likes? You bet! If you follow the link and then click “Like” I’ll be your best friend forever.

Post 2: Book 3 is done

Ugh, finally — FINALLY — I finished all the parts and pieces and rewrites of Book 3 of The Jenkins Cycle (title to be released later, hehe). Wow, it took a while. I thought when I finished the first draft in January it’d go quick. Boy was I wrong.  Lots of rewriting and agonizing and complaining and whining and profanity and conjunction after conjunction. What’s their function? Beats me, I just type stuff. Anyway, it’s done. I have to read it again, weeding out as many typos as I can, as many inconsistencies as possible, and then I need to get it to beta readers.  After that, I hope to hire 2 proofreaders — back to back — to find the last problems. Then I publish. I sincerely hope this is in July, and wish it were sooner. Still lots to do, but the hard part is over. Nothing bad can happen now.
