Having a Google Day

I repeat myself a lot here so here we again.


I can't compare my downloads to anyone else because I can't view what is going on with anyone else's books. I only have the standards of previous downloads to go. And by comparison of first downloading, Zero Hour is a success especially considering that it debuted on a Sunday, which has been a slow reading day over at Smashwords.


Either someone, somewhere, likes this series or they are faking it very well. (smile)


Again thanks for the support and downloads.


I've got the latest episode uploaded at Kobo as well and I'm going to try to get Google Play/Books done as well today.


I haven't talked much about Google since I started publishing over there but I think I should start changing that fact. My books do far better than they do at ITunes (especially fiction). It is also neat that you get to see the countries that are doing the downloading as well. Good stuff to be sure.


Anyway, I feel great for a lot of reasons: Got a power nap after work last night which was my best this weekend. Zero Hour did very well in the 24 hours or so that it has been up. And I did some brainstorming a two or three series that I believe could be successful as either short tales of fiction or novels, we'll see.


Anyway, I'm out of here for today.


Have a Google of a day.

Wait Times

Happy Sunday


I hope everyone is having a wonderful, safe holiday.


I hope I can contribute to the fun.


The Zero Hour is up at Smashwords.


No wait times.


Go download it when you like.


Enjoy.

Liars never win

And winners never lie. Or something to that affect.

Anyway, i got about 75% of my formatting done but life and lack of time got in the way.

I thought that i would finish today but did not.

Dang.

Again, winners never lie and liars never win.

Check back tomorrow. I should have the rest of the formatting done.

Tomorrow is a day away

The final edit for the Zero Hour is done.


I still have a few things to do before I began my work week so I won't rush the formatting.


I will do the formatting tomorrow afternoon after I get up.


Saturday is traditionally a slow download day, I expect it to be especially slow considering this Saturday being one of the biggest shopping days of the holiday season.


But I'm going to think of my readers. If there is one or even two of you out there who can't wait to get a copy of this puppy on Smashwords as soon as you can-- then I owe it to you to provide it.


Remember, tomorrow is only a day away.

Dooooval

My terrible jags got it done 2 night. 

As far as my writing, i'm about 80 percent done with the zero hour.

I had a ton of out of the house stuff ro do b4 i return 2 work tomorrow night.

But i still got most of my writing done. I will finish this chapter done 2 night and start final edits and formatting after a long sleep 2 night.

Anyway, lets hear one for me.

And one for the big cats from jax

Dooooooovall

Seven Whole Days

I'm reminded of the Tony Braxton song when I post tonight.


I haven't posted in seven whole days.


I haven't WRITTEN in seven whole days.


I said that I wouldn't post here or on Twitter until I wrote again.


Well, I hopped back on the horse tonight. I finished to whole chapters.


And despite a very busy schedule tomorrow, I expect to finish this draft of Zero Hour tomorrow. I will edit and upload by Friday.


I'm not perfect. If u don't believe that then ask my wife or mom, they will be more than happy to tell you. (smile)


I'm scared that all of this is for nothing.


I'm afraid that the critical voice is going to eventually win.


That voice that keeps telling me that my writings are garbage. Or that no one will read it...or those who read it will hate it. Or that I'm going to never make money from this. Or that I'm to tired too do this, or too old to start now, or that I can't wait three years or five years for readers to manifest themselves...


Believe me folks, I could go on with that last paragraph the rest of the night.


Seven whole days.


I 'm here. I won't make promises. But I am here.


Talk to you tomorrow.

When Insanity greets Insanity

Real quick:


Last night I told u guys that I officially went over the half way point of the Where are our Children Serial.


During one of the scenes in Zero Hour, a major character ask a group of other characters how do you answer insanity?


Ultimately, the answer would be that you answer insanity...with MORE insanity.


If you thought the first half of this serial has some insane moments...


...you ain't seen nothing yet.
