We finished up wrapping all the gifts for domestic abuseshelter today. We labeled all the bags with the children’s names and theirnumbers and put them in the spare bedroom. Thankfully we have been able to givethe children what they asked for Christmas, and they didn’t ask for a lot. Andwe are thankful that this year again my niece and sister have had the money tofulfill their wishes. Now I need to goget my own shopping done which hopefully will be tomorrow.
One nice thing today we had lots of sunshine, and the temperature was halfway decent. I think we actually got up to almost 40° today which was nice.
Well, I have to say I am glad to have THE HANGMAN finished and uploaded to Amazon. I hope whoever purchases the book and reads it enjoys it. If you would be so kind to write a review if you like the book I would greatly appreciate. If you don’t like the book that’s okay, but I would also request constructive criticism. The first Jonas Black book is THE STONE KILLER. Did I mention I create my own book covers?
Last night I was reviewing all my files and outlines for novels. I did not realize how many story ideas I have listed on my computer. And, they have all been started with the details of the story written down. So I have a lot of work ahead of me this coming year. I have one book, TO CATCH A DREAM, which is almost finished. It has nearly 70,000 words written. The novel, ALL FOR THE LOVE OF HANNAH, was originally a short story, so the details are all planned out. I have been working on the characters and the storyline. I have also changed the storyline to some degree. It’s basically the same it’s just that I had a section of it to work out to make it better. I think I have accomplished that. I haven’t created a book cover for Hannah as yet. I can’t seem to find the right photo to match the story. I saw a picture I liked, but can’t use it. Anyway, I hope so. There are other outlines for books, ON GABRIEL’S WATCH, A THIEF OF TIME, and several others that I haven’t titled as yet.
Well, it’s getting late, and I am so tired tonight. Everyone have a great week and stay safe. Always remember: NEVER GIVE UP, NEVER SURRENDER.
