2 years after publishing the story, I’m going to go back and re-edit it, possibly adding some more scenes and character descriptions. The reason I’m doing that is because I think the story could still use some improvement. (Plus, I need to make a trailer for the book, but that’s for another blog post) Anyway, I also have some ideas for some side stories about … Continue reading “The Summer of Our Discontent” to be re-edited
At the same time, the site Smashwords.com is having Read an Ebook Week, in which ebooks on that site are marked lower than they normally are, from free to 75%. My books Cthulhu Returns, Harry Moffer & the Dumbest Story Ever, and The Summer of Our Discontent are available for free. So that means you better get to smashwords.com and get your free copies quickly, as … Continue reading Read an Ebook Week (March 1-7)
Now that 2015 has begun, I really need to do soemthing other than obsess over the fact that it’s 2015. Which means that I must do more for my writing career and less daydreaming. It’s time for me to put away my toys and grow up. Anyway, I guess that I have no choice but to give up everything else and just concentrate on writing. … Continue reading Back to Work
Well, here I am getting ready to pick up right where I left off. I’m continuing the story about Josie Tremlett-Kahn and her friends as they fight against “the system”. They also fight against bullies and cruel family members. So, I’m preparing the first five episodes for publication on Smashwords and beginning to edit episode 6. Hopefully, I’ll get to episode 8 by the end … Continue reading Serial Saturdays: Picking Up Where I Left Off
Happy New Year’s from the Claire Violet Thorpe Express! This year, I plan to continue the Teen Rebels serial novels as well as start several more serial novels. Plus, I’m getting ready for my short stories anthology 2014, which will be published later this week. If you’re in the mood for a new story, my short story “Cthulhu Returns” can be preordered on Smashwords for … Continue reading Happy New Year from the Claire Violet Thorpe Express
Now that I have announced the title of the story, I think that the next thing that you’re all dying to know is why I came up with the title and synopsis of the story. First, I’m basing this off my own personal experiences with writing fan fiction. Next, I toss in a few references to a harry potter-like character that many people seem to … Continue reading NaNoWriMo 2014: Why Did I Come Up With This Story?
Ten days into NaNoEdMo, and I have managed to catch up to two of my six NaNoWriMo novels. But seeing as it’s only the second week of March, I need to step it up if I want to be done editing the books on time so they can be published. Meaning that today isn’t a day for me to be lazy (with a hectic writing … Continue reading Book Editing, Day 10
Ok, so now that I’ve gotten a handle on things, it’s time to say bye-bye to the fake social website that I made up for “Magical Compositions“. We won’t be seeing it again in this life. (Plus, by the time this story is over, teenagers would obviously be on MySpace, but that’s another story.) Anyway, I’m still working on the fake songs that the band … Continue reading Book Editing, Day 6
After several hours of hard work, I have finally put the parody of Harry Potter on Smashwords! (Cue air horn) Now that I have the story on Smashwords, I may consider pulling the story from Amazon.com and editing the YouTube trailer for the book so that the link to the book points to Smashwords. So there is that. Here’s the link to the book on … Continue reading “Harry Moffer & the Dumbest Story Ever!” is now available on Smashwords!
Ok, so I’m biting my tongue and doing what I needed to do a while ago. I’m going to publish my book, Harry Moffer & the Dumbest Story Ever, on Smashwords. The reason I’m doing this is because my book sales on Amazon.com leave much to be desired, and I wanted to expand my publishing prowess to other book-publishing sites. So there is that. I’ll … Continue reading “Harry Moffer & the Dumbest Story Ever!” to be published on Smashwords!
