I’m shocking myself. After doing a blog post yesterday, you’d think I’d take a month or so off, judging by my track record. But, as they say in the stock market, “past performance is not indicative of future results.”
Below, you’ll find another Snarkey & Putts video, which features me reading a third excerpt from their origin story, The Case of the Undead Arbitrator. I made it two or three weeks ago, recording the whole series of 11 videos in one day, which is why I’m wearing the same clothing in each segment. Since then, I’ve made a couple of additional videos for the second S&P story, The Case of the Ghastly Ghostwriter. I’ll post them here eventually, so you’ll get to see other components of my wardrobe. I’ve got more than one shirt, even though I am an author.
Here’s Excerpt No. 3.
The first series of videos is admittedly a little reserved, i.e., stiff. But I’m learning. You need to get used to the camera and the mic and I nearly threw out my back moving in all those bookcases that form the backdrop.
That’s it for today. Back with more tomorrow, hopefully.
O.K., so I didn’t get back in a week. I’ve been busy getting the second of my Snarkey & Putts stories ready for publication (self-publication, that is). This time, the boys rate a full-length novel. The title is The Case of the Ghastly Ghostwriter. I’m not going to tell you any more about it for the nonce, but you might like to see the latest version of the cover. (See left.) It’s not quite finalized, but it’s very close.
The artist is Angel Nichols, who did the cover of The Case of the Undead Arbitrator. Angel is a breeze to work with, very talented and reasonably priced. If Ghastly Ghostwriter sells, I may be able to afford to have her work on the cover art for the third Snarkey & Putts story.
I haven’t posted in a while, still busy setting up the website. Takes a while to learn the ins-and-outs of WordPress. But I will say that it’s much easier than it was a few years ago. Hats off to the WordPress team.
One thing I don’t seem able to do yet is get a CAPTCHA on my comments forms. If you don’t know what I’m talking about, count yourself lucky.
If you look under the “Stories” tab, you’ll see that I’ve imported a number of stories originally posted on my Google+ page. I’ve re-written them all, more or less. Can’t look at anything I’ve written without making corrections. There are a few more coming.
I also have another couple of books to add. Still must complete my bio and even the book descriptions that are up. Oh, well. I’ll get to it. When it’s all done, I’ll start blogging daily.
What I’m busiest with now is my Snarkey & Putts, Paranormal Attorneys-at-Law series. I’ve completed my first, The Case of the Undead Arbitrator, the pair’s origin story. I’m working on the second, The Case of the Ghastly Ghostwriter. I’ve learned something from my epic comedy-satires, i.e., keep it short.
