Good morning, and it is a lovely morning here. Going to be  warm spring day. That's exciting, but what is really exciting for me, is the next step in getting 'Tannion - Future Past', book four in the Tannion Series, published has started. The book is off being formatted and as soon as I get it back, I will be able to purchase the back cover and spine for the  print version and hopefully within a couple of weeks, my fourth book will be published.

Of course publishing and selling are two completely different things as my sales are basically at zero. Maybe having a fourth book in the series will help, but I get the impression that as before, I am publishing books for my pleasure and almost no one else. If you haven't taken a look at my books yet, please take the time to check them out.

I have added a few more chapters to 'Bentley' my spinoff novel from the Tannion Series. It is getting closer to the end with almost seventy thousand words and counting. Still not sure how it will end, but I have a good idea. It, however, like the eleven other books I have written and not published, will probably never be published. Not unless something drastic was to change.

That's it for now and for the first time in months, I actually have some news worth talking about. Talk again soon.

Good morning. Another Monday is upon us and time to say a few words. Missed a couple of Mondays mostly as there hasn't been much to say. 

I have added another couple of chapters to my next book 'Bentley', the spinoff from my Tannion series. It is getting closer to the end as it has 67 thousand plus words and I think I have the ending in my head. My next project is to get the 4th book in the Tannion series published in the next two months. I need to buy the cover which I have already picked out and then solicit some help in formatting and maybe then it will be published.

I plan on using Amazon platform as it has taken over from Createspace which I had used before. I was happy with Createspace so I'm hoping Amazon will do as good a job. If there are any thoughts out there on whether that is the case or not, please let me know.

We are still fairly locked down because of the pandemic we are supposed to be in. People are being vaccinated and maybe it will end one day, but with the talk of a vaccine passport, I'm not sure where we are heading. Here in Alberta we are having a large number of cases, but almost no deaths and the number of people in the hospital is low compared to what it was in the last wave and very low in comparison to the number of beds available. You however will never hear that on the news.

The news is all doom and gloom with the number of cases being so high that we must all be ready to die. Bull crap is what it is but time will tell.

That's all for now. Talk again soon.
