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, …

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, …

Chapter 3 The earthquake.  Matthew 27:51-54 (ESV) 51:  And the earth shook, and the rocks were split.      Beth looked up at me, and I down to her. The sound increased to a deafening thunder below our feet.      “Earthquake!” Beth grabbed me by the arm.      I could see over the hedges into the next lot, where she couldn’t. …

Talk about inspiration

  Writing this post is difficult considering my cover is done. All I want to do is look at it. The realization that a dream is about to come true is enough to overwhelm. By the time I see dollar one, it will have been seven years I’ve been at this project. Seeing the cover, not to mention showing it, …

   In the business of real estate, it’s location, location, location. In the novel business it’s timing, timing, timing. I have been wasting time. It’s time to put on my big boy pants. I’ve been at this a long time.  No that’s not what I mean. What I’m talking about is useing the (Bogus) hype about the end of the …

Alpha team update.

Have I hooked them?This is not a top secret document, so when a member is done reading, he might pass it on to another, or just leave …
