I haven’t posted an entry in over a month O_O! So, what’s been up? I shall tell you.
I must admit I have not made as much progress editing Nudibranchs! as I’d hoped, but I am past the halfway mark. I just really want it to be my best, lengthiest, book. However, I have also begun writing quite a few other books. My plan is to switch between them and by the time one is done the others will follow in rapid succession. Right now I’ve got Attack of the Anemones, The Savage Sea Stars, Sea Horrorses, Blue Rings of Death, The Swallowtail Terror, Armadillo Frenzy, and Jesse’s Influence in various stages of production. Although, I am still down on myself, as I don’t feel I’ve been productive enough. After working at my day job I’m usually pretty tired by the time I get home and have been quite lazy. Then again, I have been busy with other life things, too.
I finally have all my completed books uploaded to Google Play, so all you Kindle naysayers can now purchase PDF versions. Once Nook Press stops have technical issues I can bust into the Nook market as well.
Last week the folks visited from Ecuador. It was nice seeing them again, and it’s weird knowing it’ll be the last time for at least a year because they’re expatriates living in a third world country.
The week before the folks visited I was in San Jose visiting Bix, which was wonderful, as usual. When we went to The Academy of Sciences (which just happens to play a part in Nudibranchs!) there was a gal there (I’m horrendous at memorizing names) who was giving a small presentation on, believe it or not, nudibranchs. I spent a good while talking with her about them and my book, and she seemed pretty excited about it. I gave her my business card and she said she would pass it along to her mentor, who she assured is the authority on nudibranchs. Thus, another reason I’m pressuring myself to make the book great. Well, it’ll be trashy and ridiculous, but as great as a book of its nature can be.
