I realize that we all misspell words on occasion. Sometimes I miss a word or two when I blog. I try to go over everything with a fine tooth comb,but sometimes a misshap will go right past my eyes.
This is why writers should have editors when authoring a book of any kind. I really don’t use an editor for blogs so I do make mistakes, even when I think I have checked out the blog really well.
I read so many ebooks with, dozens of mistakes. That is bad editing. I know some of them list their editors and I wonder what ,they are paying them for. The paperback version can sell for $14.95, and the ebook is free or is in Amazon’s Lending Library. Why would I buy it with that many mistakes. Some pages are even in the book twice, and paragraphs are repeated sometimes.
I only wrote this to say; you get what you pay for, be carefull.
Don’t think you will get rich off writing your first book. No matter what you have been reading, the odds are:
3 out of 10,00, and that is in Children’s books alone.
Is there hope, always. Harry Potter was no overnight series. The Hobbit and The Lord of The Rings also weren’t either. Hard work and not giving up matter the most. Most famous authors except for a rare few, have not had overnight success, it just may seem that way from another writer’s view. Most readers also, don’t grasp the odds of an overnight success..
I only wrote this short blog, because of all the books saying you can become a writer, making a decent living writing books. I read a book on how to become a writer, even if you hate to write. Why would you want to write a book, if you hate to write? Writing should be more about passion, than money. Self help books don’t really fall in overnight success either, and wouldn’t you want to write a self help book on an issue dear to your heart.
Yes, we all need and want to make money, but face it, not everyone is overnight.
My sister ended up in ICU due to somemajor health problems. My book is a little behind, but sister is much better and “Twisted Myths & Legends”, will be out next week.
I thought I would give you another peak, just a little peak. A picture of the story!!!!
This short story is about the Birthing ot the first male and female vampire.
I thought we were the couple that could withstand all every time I inhaled I felt you steal it away with your love for me.
When we met I convinced myself my life of pain, neurotic lovers, and misery would finally be over.
You looked deep into my eyes that first night we made love and reassured me that you could never love again if I left.
I saw the world in a new light as cheesy as that might be.
You held me up when I needed an extra boost of strength.
When I walked in to the room your eyes never once looked anywhere else.
Every night you laid in my arms promising me a love forever.
I came home early from work to surprise you with my love for you.
I came through the door of my house and saw heels and a skirt flung on my living room floor and they were not mine.
I could smell the perfume distribution every where as I followed the pile of clothes upstairs.
I felt like I was walking to the death of my heart.
I opened the bedroom door and just in time to hear you say to her that if she ever left you there would never be love for you again.
I was unable to even speak as I just stared at you lying on top of her and looking into her eyes the way you looked at mine so many times.
I wanted to run over and pull you off of her and ask why you were hurting me so much.
I wanted to know what I could have done to make your love not be only for me.
I walked back down the stairs and out the door.
I got into my car and drove as I thought of your sweet promises.
I felt like there was a never ending sign on my forehead “dirt bags apply within”
I remembered your promise of how you would never betray my love the way so many others had.
I remembered all the lies every man had told me since I was sixteen.
I am here fifteen years later and nothing has changed except my age.
I drove even faster as my anger began to grow.
I told myself I would never be hurt again.
I drove so fast around that mountain road that I was almost able to convince myself the corner was not coming.
I spiraled my car over one hundred feet down the embankment.
The doctors said it was a miracle I was still alive.
Everyday I am grateful my death did not come that day.
I am alive and twenty years have pasted.
I write this tonight as the love of my life is by my side after fifteen years of marital bliss.
He rushed nothing and waited for me to heal physically and emotionally.
I an thankful every day I did not die and he had been driving behind me that day of the crash.
He never left my side and he is the true promise that will not be broken.
—When time meant everything Your promise fell apart …And I stood here without a way To recover.

THE WEDDING DRESS NOT EVEN OFF OF HER SKIN,
HE THROWS HER DOWN AND HER PAINFUL REALITY BEGINS.
SHE NEVER KNEW WHAT LOVING MEANT,
SO NOW HE IS IT UNTIL THE END.
HER FATE IS IN HER OWN HANDS AND YET SHE WON’T RUN,
SHE BELIEVES THE RING MEANS FOREVER HE CAN BE THE ONLY ONE.
HER WEDDING NIGHT WILL BE THE BEGINNING STEPS TO BEING HIS SLAVE,
AND ONE DAY DOWN THE ROAD HAVING NEVER KNOWN A REAL LOVE SHE WILL BE SENT TO AN EARLY GRAVE.
I have finally designed my Book Cover for “Twisted Myths & Legends”.
Hopefully this cover has enough snap for eye appeal.
Been busy writing and editing. Some of the “Lillith” story may seem different, but really it is just rearranged some. I am still having trouble with a “Book Cover”. I don’t like most of the ones I have come up with. I have more story-line pictures to do but they seem a bit easier than the “Book Cover”, issue.
I do so enjoy writing “Twisted Myths & Legends”, short stories can pop up in the mind so easily. It looks as though two weeks to finish ” Twisted Myths & Legends”, keeping to the timing for release on target.
I have been working on a full -length novel, but it will be a while before I can give sneak peaks of that. I look to have the novel come out in about 3 or 4 months.
signing off for now!!!!!!
A short excerpt of the story of “Lillith The Beautiful Demon”.
Lillith was Adam’s first wife in Hebrew Literature. She was replace by Eve because, she was not the “ Good Wife.” Lillith boldly leaves Eden because she is treated as man’s inferior
Eve ate of the apple that was offered to her by the snake, who was Satan. Adam and Eve were expelled from the Garden because of this. Then they had Cain and Able. Two sons of whom they were proud. God preferred Able’s over Cain’s offerings. This angered Cain and he killed Able. But did Satan talk him into this? Or was it someone else?
Lillith was very angry when she left Adam, but there was no way she was not his equal. She could also shapeshift. Adam could not.
This book of short stories will be out in about 2 weeks. I’m working on the cover and doing my final editing. I like to read books that were written well and I know you do.
A contest will be available at that time, also my new newsletter. Signing up will be easy, and cost nothing.
