Firstly, just to let everyone know what I'm up to.
Something that really annoys me (and I know it will annoy many of you) is to be reading an enjoyable story that is never finished.
I plead guilty to doing just that... too often for my own liking, so I apologise to all who desperately want me to finish several of my stories.
I make no excuses, as I just get carried away with too many new ideas.
I am making this Blog post for two reasons, one; to keep you updated and so you will know why I'm not posting any new material for a while,
Two; for me, to act as a sort of carrot/stick to force me to stick to my pledge....TO FINISH SOME STUFF!
I am writing the sequel to The Candy Cane Club. It is called DEAD END, and I want to finish the damn thing before the end of this month.
I am also trying to finish the Sequel to Whispers in the Mind.. it is called WHISPERS IN THE SOUL, and I hope to finish that in the next couple of weeks after DEAD END.
I also want to finish all my other stories that remain unfinished here, but these two are my priority. Once they are up and Published, I will post tasters of them on my website, and get on and try to round off all my unfinished stories.
Not including the ones that are unfinished here, I have too many unfinished stories lying around. On my PC, I have no less that forty-two stories at some stage of completion. It is completely daft, as I seem to start new ones each week, and let the old ones sit there.
Now, for the assistance bit.
I have recently been blessed by the help of kind individuals who have assisted in proof reading and editing, for which I am eternally grateful. I don't need any more help in that area, at the moment.
However but I am spending far too much time designing and creating my own book covers. I do enjoy it, but it is time consuming, and if I want to write, then this could be a task that I can outsource. The reason I do it is to keep costs down. I am at that stage whereby I have stopped working to write full time. I can just about afford not to work, but I need to publish at least one book every eight weeks to keep my head above water.
If you are creative and would like to try your hand at designing a book cover for me, please contact me. The more willing volunteers the merrier. I will give you a title and a rough synopsis so you have an idea as to what I want, and then be creative. Full credit will be given to any that I use on a published book, plus free books to the selected designer.
I have been plagued by so-called professional designers, who charge a bomb and don't, in my opinion, do that much better than some enthusiastic amateurs that I know. So, who's willing to give it a try?
Looking forward to seeing what can be done!
