The past few days, 24 of them to be precise, I've been putting up chapters of The Shimmering Image, the 1st novel in a series of five I call The Shimmering Image series. Being new to this site, I've moved cautiously, unfamiliar with the rules. Counting the next comment I get on these chapters, I'll be up to one. ;-(
My time's been heavily occupied after I read a post on this site by Matthew Sawyer regarding the website Smashwords. The problems I ran into regarding the massive formatting changes that site required were enormous. For a guy like me, totally "non-geeky" and uninformed on many things I've learned lately about MS Word, there was a great deal of frustration accompanied by a great learning experience. There was also very little of that commodity known as "spare time". That's changing now, calling for a resounding "Whew!" on my part.
Based on the response to my consecutive posts of The Shimmering Image being not quite up to negligible, I won't bother putting up a second story. Yet, a man of my word and all that, I'll finish this one, which includes 7 more chapters and an "Interview with the Author" that serves as an epilogue of sorts. I certainly do hope none of these posts have been offensive to anyone. It was my hope they'd be enjoyed and, if I was fortunate, critiqued by others. Still, I learned even while still a little boy we don't always get what we want.
At least the SmashWords experience has resulted in some sales, and I hope to see many more. In that regard, I'll call my results to date a win. While I certainly don't expect them now, after 24 days of getting none, any comments on this post will be welcomed and will receive a prompt reply within one day, or less.
Thanx for your time and attention.
