I always think it can’t be time to write this blog again and then I find out I am wrong, it is. I spent last week doing site updates and then yesterday working on graphics, and books with the others.
When you pray, if you pray, include Melody Laughlin who is going through some medical difficulties that are pretty serious. She is on my mind. She has a great many friends here, she was just here last summer and we hope to see her many more summers. Keep her in your thoughts, please.
It is funny how time sneaks up on you. There have been many times in my life where I have taken people for granted, people I no longer have in my life, people the world no longer has. I don’t do that anymore. Right now I have a handful of friends and they are important to me.
I have also been working on all the other little things that have left hanging since I undertook this house project late last summer. Talk about time passing, it has passed very quickly while I’ve been caught up in this. It still isn’t done, but it’s done enough. So I have begun picking up, over the last few weeks, all of those pieces.
The first thing was to get writing schedules back on track. The second thing was to sort all of those out and see where each project was and where we felt it needed to be.
America The Dead is the blog style story telling that came out of independAntwriters up until last year.

They will remain there, but I also might reactivate them on Amazon too; digital and paperback versions.
Smashwords and Amazon. I will point out that while most Digital Publishers concentrate on only their own format, Smashwords delivers for all formats. In a sense, then, it only makes sense that we would make sure to be there. We have not been in the past, but that is changing and will continue to change even more throughout 2021 and beyond. As other places are suggested I’ll look into them. We had plans at one time to do our own digital publishing, I mean the physical copy of the book. But time wise it doesn’t make sense to any of us. As I said, you will see more and more on Smashwords and I would like to see that be the first release for new publications.
New Stuff: Small humorous entries that most of us around here get to read and no one else. That will be weekly. The second is the America The Dead series offered once again in a serial format to read for free. That will be weekly if we do it. The last is a serialized crime podcast series that will be offered weekly, Crime Time, yes like the story collection, and there will be short stories as well as serialized novels from the Rebecca Monet series. Look for those later next year.
I hope you have enjoyed your week, I’ll be back next week…
