Biggest honor of my writing carreer.

Dale Langlois Uncategorized

A few weeks ago we attended a jamboree for one of my wife’s relatives who is battling cancer. I donated a couple books for the Chinese auction. You buy tickets and put them in for a drawing. My wife’s niece’s daughter won one of my novels. Of course I signed both of them for the winners and then we went …

Planning for retirement

Dale Langlois Uncategorized

At the age of fifty five, one tends to think of where they want to be at the age of seventy five. I already know I live in my last permanent structure, the hunting camp I turned into a home for my wife Charlene and all family and friends to enjoy. I live where I always went to get away …

Going on a trip, you’re coming with me.

Talk about a crossroads. Less than a month to go before the U.S. is led by a leader few really wanted. No matter who takes the prize or how he or she got there won’t matter. Our new leader will be hated by half the country and most of the world. You bet, things are going to change. I won’t …

My introduction to the world.

When I conceived the theme of my novel, and the story developed, the idea of selling it never came to mind. I am at the stage where the creating process is nearing an end. My edits will be done this week.More than once I have been called an author. Other times I struggled to find even one friend who would call me a writer. What difference does it make? …

Yesterday I worked on my Thank You page. Writing a novel is something you do by yourself, until you want to do it right. The help of others is essential if your story is to be marketable.Of course I thought of my father Bruce, who passed nearly three years ago. I thanked him for his artistic abilities. He taught me …

‘THE BEAVE HAS GIVEN UP!’

This is what I’ve been hearing from my Alpha team at work. I’m sure they believe in me and know how hard I’ve been working, but they haven’t seen any revisions. I have talked to them, but have kept the revised versions secret. I took the advice of many while I changed much of the book. Chapters: 12,36,42,44 and 45 …

The main reason I developed an Alpha team was so they could read my manuscript beginning to end and tell me where the problems were. Up until the last five chapters, there were few problems. In fact I thought I had it licked, but I was wrong. Every member hated the last chapters. ‘It seemed rushed’, ‘Too much of this, …

Sprinting, but afraid of reaching the goal.

Dale Langlois Uncategorized

My goal is to finish the last six chapters next week. I will send my final revised manuscript to my editor at: http://www.fictionfixitshop.com/. Waiting for her final advice will seem an eternity, but I’ve come this far. In future weeks after her responce, I will format the whole thing to an E-book. I will print some paperbacks and some hard …

I need your help.

You who know me, realize I can’t spend the whole month of May without working in the yard, or making an honest attempt at a fresh walleye or turkey supper. Spending time out doors takes away from my writing. Today it is raining; I have the time, but not the inspiration. The chapter I am working on is easy enough, …

Signs of the apocolypse? I think not.

March 19th in upstate New York and my tulips are already poking their heads out of ground which is normally covered by a three foot snowbank. 1)Have the seasons changed, and why are we experiencing such record heat? 2)Did you stand a broom in your house and believe it was due to solar flairs or planetary alignment? 3)Did you try …
