Not much today

I have big plans for tomorrow, and today I MUST finally finish this book, which was allegedly published last December. Because of the delay, the book is now bigger and better, and that's probably good. This morning I am updating the index, which is the worst part of bookmaking -- but can't be trusted to anyone else.

This book is the last part of a trio (triumvirate? troika?) When it's done, I'll have books to help writers who want to start their own little publishing companies, writers who want to use a self-publishing company, and writers who are not sure which way to go. 

I am slowly building a publishing empire, and I'm having a ball doing it. In 2008 I formed Silver Sands Books with the intention to publish exactly one book. Now I can honestly say that I don't know how many I've published. . . but it's approaching 20!

In a few hours I should have a proof of the hardcover edition of my "stories" book -- so it will be available hard, soft, and "e." 

E-book, shmeebook. I've been writing professionally since 1969 or '70, but without the hardcover, my mother won't think I'm a "real" writer. OK, Mom, this one's for you.



  1. Sounds like an interesting read. I'll be sure to order a copy when it's ready.

    On an unrelated note, what happened with the lawsuit filed by Outskirts? I've been curious to know if they let it go, or if they're still trying to sue you.

    As soon as I get back home to Kentucky, I'll order a copy of "Stupid, Sloppy, Sleazy" as well.

  2. To Brandon...

    The Outskirts lawsuit was my April Fool's prank. GOTCHA! [grin]
