Realized I hadn't done this for a while.


Got the proofread copy the Courier back, have cover for it. But have to make the corrections in it. I want to publish it next month for Christmas but I don't know.

Reason I don't know is that I am doing Nano this year again and at the same time finishing up 30 short stories due at the end of this month. But I just happen to notice that in the rules of Nano they say we can cheat by doing short stories as long as they are connected and equal at least 50,000 words. SO I figured five tales of 10,000 words each.

I finished one a Science fiction tale of someone I at first thought of like Hans Solo but as he is turning out more like the Stainless Steal Rat. or both.

Anyway, I have one 12,000 word story done. Somewhere around 3,600 words on one I am doing at work, Number Three, and now 3,625 words on Number Two.

I had thought about it just being about the same person during the same time period of his life but the way the One ended he may just have someone working against him, he will have to wait until Five to find out who. Right now in Two he just found out he is wanted in a certain system. One he hadn't been to in five years for bank robbery and computer fraud. He hadn't robbed any banks there, not even via computer. So he is off to clear his name.

Journey of Mystery is done but I need a proof reader and a cover. I have money for the cover but not the proofing

I have temporally suspended work on my other novels.


Oh BTW if you have read the Stainless Steal Rat books and stories do so. At least the first three or four books.
