The Book of Pain is finally finished.
At last my longest, hardest and what I truly hope to be my best novel is finally done, finished, ended, concluded.
It’s been a hard slog, what with writing two completely different endings, polishing both, then deciding which I would use.
Unfortunately, after rechecking the end of my my subservience to Amazon, I discovered that it isn’t the 2nd of Jan, but the 20th. As we all know they don’t make it easy to find anything, so I might as well go through it again. I’m as happy as I’m ever likely to be with the plot, the structure, the ending and my first and probably last sex scene, but I’ll bet I can find more errors to fix – so I might as well do it again, and then publish to Amazon and Smashwords on the same day.
Now for my next problem. My Three Hoodies series hasn’t been as successful as I’d hoped, so I’d previously decided not to publish the third. But then I thought, as it’s finished, why waste all that work. So I’m going to finish the final edit and do it. My beta readers said it was funny, which was the point of writing them after all. This is the cover – probably. I’ll just inject a little more terror into their flight across the road.
And, although I’ve already begun another three novels: Geezers 3, Kongomato 3 and an end of the world disaster, I’m going to take a few weeks off and do something I should have been doing every single day; which is to actually advertise my books.
