Leave a comment

Here’s the current week’s prompt from the Haiku Horizon site is “PIN” and here are my three Haiku response endeavors:

Cruel man with a pin
Gets joy popping kid’s balloon
When child start crying

Breaking up is sad.
The ache is very painful
Pin stuck into heart

Pin tail on donkey.
Childhood birthday party game.
Where has the fun gone

HAIKU HORIZON # 33 – FOOL

Leave a comment

Here is this week’s prompt from the Haiku Horizon site which is “FOOL” and here are my three Haiku response endeavors:
[ https://haikuhorizons.wordpress.com ]

April Fools Day’s here
Make someone believe a lie
Look your shoe’s bleeding

Fool and his money
Can be soon lost by a scam
So, don’t carry some

A fool never learns
That’s why he remains a fool
No use repeating

I would love to get your feedback here.

My erotic side now completed the re-read/re-editing of the GLBT/BDSM manuscript she’s been working on and will need about 6/7 more chapters before the elusive last period gets to be typed. Meanwhile, in order for me to starting working on my own two WIP manuscripts I’d started researching the issue which had been confronting me. After checking out a few KINDLE books I’ve got on my reader, I see that I don’t need to worry about page numbers or the headers [my name and the book’s title], which means I can resume working on them. This doesn’t include my erotic side’s other endeavors.

Working on these four endeavors at the same will require a great deal of scheduling when I combine them with all the other things I’m involved with so I won’t negate working on them as I’m doing now. One major component of the three WIP manuscripts is the re-reading and re-editing of them. I’m just going to need to make adjustments to the spreadsheet I’ve been using for each book, and designing one or two more.

I believe I’ve also resolved the cover design issue I’d been facing regarding how to have all the cover components [picture/illustration, book title, and author’s name] present when the cover is completed; more on this when I’ve completed each book.

So starting tomorrow, April 7, 2018, I’m going to play catch up with the entries I’ve failed to post anything for during the past few weeks. Since I haven’t done any real work on my various manuscripts so far this year, I’ve been able to post quite book reviews on Amazon and elsewhere. However, I haven’t posted any here on this blog; so I’m going to start posting what I consider my better reviews, before moving on to posting more on a regular on-going basis.

HAIKU HORIZONS # 32 – BUG

Leave a comment

Here is this week’s prompt from the Haiku Horizon site which is “BUG” and here are my three Haiku response endeavors:

[ https://haikuhorizons.wordpress.com ]

Lightning bugs in jar.
Boy collects in mason jar
Mom will set them free

Cockroach on the floor
Then stomp on them with your shoe
Sweep into dustpan

Take care when you talk
Boss has bug in your office
To hear what you say

I would love to get your feedback here

After some long thought-processing of what I should do regarding my current WIP endeavors since CreateSpace has ceased all of its support services for authors, I’ve decided to forge ahead with one of manuscripts that my erotic side [Kathryn Heart] has going for her. One of the reasons I’ve chosen this particular manuscript from the total of four we’ve got between us is that going forwards we won’t be producing any paperback versions of our books.

Going forwards with a KINDLE version only, we [my erotic side and I] know the covers [front and back] will have to be part of the file being converted to the KINDLE format. The biggest problem with designing the cover on our own would be to have the title/author’s name overlaid onto the artwork for the front cover, and for this particular manuscript an overlay won’t be required, given what my thoughts for the cover design are. The only issue we’ve basically got is for the formatting of the text pages, specifically to get the page numbers to start a few pages in. But, I’m going to check a dozen or so KINDLE only books I’ve got on my computer to see if physical page numbers are actually necessary for a KINDLE book.

Right now, since I haven’t looked at this particular manuscript or any of my other ones since the middle of November of last year, I’ve got to begin by looking at each one before starting to write anew. So, in regards to this manuscript which is an erotic GLBT/BDSM novella entitled “The Transformation”, I’ve already re-read and edited about 65% of the existing manuscript, and still need to write about 15% more to reach my projected total of 32,500 words. As it stands now, I’ve got 115 pages with approximately 27,600 words.

With the writing of my manuscripts resuming the velocity at which I’ve been reading/writing reviews will now be tapered back.

Lastly, I’d love to start interviewing my fellow romance authors here. So, if you’re interested please send me a DM to my Twitter account [@mypennameonly] and we can start the process [first come, first served basis]. Be advised I’m only taking the first 15 individuals who respond.

Let us not forget an old-fashioned, but true marketing technique; which is known as the simple mouth-to-mouth advertising.
