Done it!!!


     I’ve finally done it. Old Geezers 2 is finished. After eighteen edits I’m confident that I’ve eradicated every mistake. I also think it’s the best thing I’ve ever written and hopefully I’ll be saying the same thing about The Book of Pain when I finally finish editing that.

     Now all I have to do is format it for Amazon and Smashwords. It’s a pity I can’t give away Geezers 1 to give people a taste but Amazon won’t let me as I only have a month to go with them and cannot give away anything. But as soon as I get back to Smashwords I will give the first away to tempt people.

     I’m not going to do the Createspace thing. It’s such a colossal pain and I never sold enough to make it worthwhile.

I wish I was as complacent about the cover, but as I can’t pay anyone else to do it, I hope the writing will speak for itself.



  1. I need to catch up on all your books. I have several written by you on my Kindle.

  2. If you get round to them I hope you enjoy. There'll be three more including this one within six months if I get my act together. I love writing, but editing is not my thing.

  3. Again, it's not letting me post. I love the cover. It says so much about those 3 rascals. I know what you mean about Amazon. It bums me that they won't let us do free for X amount of time or use coupons or something like smashwords.

  4. I tried to upload it to Amazon tonight. I was doing well until I tried to see the book preview, then the whole site crashed - three times. I'll try again in a couple of days when my new provider begins. The transition between the two providers is suppose to be seamless but we all know what that means.
