No he hasn't shuffled off this mortal coil.

I've been editing.

    I might have mentioned on the odd occasion that I like editing. Well I'm bored with it now. 

    In fact, I've read and edited my new novel so many times I can no longer find anything good about it at all. That's why I've stopped - before I burn it.

    Fifteen edits and I've read it frontwards, backwards, not read it at all but just looked at the punctuation. I've even read it backwards not looking at the punctuation.

    Here's the original cover. I decided that it was a little to bare (if you'll pardon the pun) and decided to put another little image alongside it. I don't know how long it'll take because my trusty painting tablet that I bought for £66 pounds what seems like a lifetime ago, has finally packed up. It's now become a tray to stop me dropping yet another cup of tea over my keyboard. I'll have a delve into Amazon later to see what I've got to sell in order to pay what they're probably charging these days.

    Any helpful hints as to a good one that doesn't cost a million would be gratefully received


  1. Only fifteen! You've hardly begun!

  2. Don't get Wacom. It loses the driver constantly, sometimes mid project. I thought it was just me but googling reveals it's "common". I think of you just dropped some background in that cover it would be good :)

    1. Thanks. I tried that and just messed it up.
      there's probably a better way.
