Been busy working on a number of things. Not as much writing as I wished though. We have had a week of extreme temps that have made me just lie around reading books in my basement.
While I have been relaxing I have been plotting out in my mind other things I plan on writing. While it cooled off enough today to think about working I decided to open up the file of the newest tale I started. Only one itty bitty problem. The file on my HP refused to open. Yup this still happens folks. Luckily for me I had saved the story onto an old school memory card. One of the extras I had for my camera. The file and one other that I had started were safely on the card and opened up not a problem.
So folks remember this always, always, always save in more than one place! I am of course very glad I did in fact remember this.
Of course one of the issues with saving in multiple places is that you do’t always remember where. I have an illustrated tale of a fox that I can’t seem to find the working images. The problems with illustrated tales is that I do the artwork myself. I have found I like doing them and while I am not sure just how to categorize my illustrated tales I will keep doing them.
In fact once I dig out “If I could Fly” I plan on posting it up via D2D so that other places other than Amazon will have it. So if you are interested in a childrens book you could go over and take a look. It is a sweet tale, imo, abut an old dog whose only dream is to fly.
I have only seen a few sales so far of this particular title. Maybe because I didn’t really do the marketing part, maybe because it is a children’t book or just maybe because Amazon isn’t having any sales for me in the past year.
Oddly enough I have been having a few sales every month from my D2D account. Those of you who had been good enough to buy my work thank you!
