I am a happy guy. My new book is proofed and ready to send to the Printer. I read it today, it took about 8 hours. I found three more mistakes, all of them mine in not watching my typing when inserting the proofer’s changes. There were only one or two…….. (hundred) errors corrected by my professional proofers.
Shucks I know you guys that read this blog would never believe I could make that many mistakes in punctuation, and tenses of verbs, etc. I know them nouns and thangs. I think the proffers believe I take a hand full of commas and only a few periods and throw them into my manuscripts.
The book is large print and 270 pages. I did have it down to 200 pages, but that was a 6” x 9” book. I downsized it to 5.25”x 8”, the size is easier to handle, but it does make it more expensive because the printer charges by the page.
Oh shucks, but I love the book. I even cried a couple times today and laughed bit also. I haven’t been selling my books here on the blog lately, but since they will not go less than about 9.80$ or 10.80$ not sure yet. I am going to check the wholes sale price and see about making them available here. I do not get reviews that way, but I would rather be read.
But this is (in my opinion) the best book yet. I am hoping It can be listed for a $1 as an e-book. It is not at that stage yet. I still must do one more Proof run.
Sorry for a boring post, but I enjoyed writing this book as well as reading it, and I am very well satisfied with the result.
The title is: Johnny, the Trail and Trials. The Sub Title is changed, now it is: A Good Boy in Trouble.
Writing is a hobby. Fiction is fun when related to real life.
Thank you guys for stopping by the Shipslog, I appreciate it.
