Paradise For The Ungodly


I’m aware that I haven’t written what I would call a “proper” post for a few weeks now.  The lull has been because I’ve been concentrating on my latest writing project.  A surprising amount of water has flowed under the bridge since my last communication however, and I thought I would share with you what is happening.  I’ve made quite a lot of technical changes to the manuscript; plus I’ve corrected the few errors that were found.  I’ve just ordered my 5th proof copy, and since the first incarnation of my book I have changed some of the fonts, increased the font size, changed the cover half a dozen times, and… changed the title and sub-title.  Yes, I have; I can’t believe I’ve done that, but I have.

Originally, the book was to be called, “The Road To Nowhere“, with the sub-title, “paradise for the ungodly.”  Now it is called, “Paradise For The Ungodly”, with the sub-title, “the inner wilderness of silence”.  I’m expecting the proof to arrive by the end of the week, so if all goes to plan, I will still be publishing before the end of August.  The pics are of the image that I’ve decided to use for the final cover, and one of the rough covers I experimented with.  Chat soon lovely people, bye for now!

Stuff!


Hi people.  I thought it was time I communicated with an update of what “stuff” is going on.  Firstly, my latest book, The Road To Nowhere.  I had some real tech nightmares with formatting, which I thought I’d solved.  As a result I added a temporary cover, which enabled me to order a couple of proof copies for the purpose of checking the interior.  To my horror the problems had returned and I was unable to resolve them.  So, I decided that I would download a fresh template and format the file again from scratch.  I’m in the process of doing this now and I expect to be finished very soon.  So watch this space!

I’ve also been painting again, and my latest piece is shown below.  As ever, the photo doesn’t do it justice.  I really like it; it looks fantastic “in the flesh.”

 

There is also the little matter of the latest edition to my family, namely my four-string box guitar; which is based on the classic cigar-box guitar.  There’s another pic below for you to feast your eyes on.  Isn’t she a beauty?
