It’s been a little while since i posted, mostly because I don’t really have any one thing to talk about.
First, I’m just off a fantastic 3 day stint with Jack. We worked on writing and reading, manners, and most importantly following
directions. His favorite thing int he world is playing Lego Batman on my Xbox. It’s a constant struggle, because he wants to play (and would) from the moment he wakes up in the morning until the second he has to go to bed. This morning, when I said “It’s time to turn it off and go to school, he put the controller down, said “Yes, Sir,” and turned it off. No questions, no argument. VICTORY!
He is such a good kid. He does what he’s supposed to, mostly when he’s supposed to. I’m so proud of my boy and how well he’s handling the big changes in his life, I can’t even begin to describe it. We’ve had several conversations about those changes, he always impresses me with how perceptive he is.
The giant tank is set up, has fishes living in it, and looks good. It’s not great yet. I still have so much work to do on that tank, but funds are limited and it’s already a giant cash sink. I love having it though, I love staring at it while I write and work. So peaceful!
It makes me really happy for a number of reasons, but mostly I like having it to tinker with. I’m always a guy that does better when I have a project, and this one has dozens of little things I can do for not a lot of money or time. Hooray for getting a feeling of accomplishment for an hour’s labor and $3.
Autographed copies of WZF are selling GREAT! I wish I’d talked more about this last time I offered them. The problem with facebook is that any given post by a page is only seen by about 10% of it’s audience. Which means, in order for a message to be received by all 900 readers that like the FB page (Are you one of them? Thank you!) I have to post something about it at least 10 times. For those that are regulars on the page, they have to see it 10 different times. If you’re interested in an autographed copy, please visit us on Facebook and send a message to the page, or you can post your interest in a comment at the bottom of this post.
This was emphasized to me by the number of “Is Book 5 available on amazon” posts I’ve gotten lately. Every single post I’ve made in the last few days has had at least 1 person ask me when the 5th book will be on amazon. Each time I answer the person. And on the next post, someone different asks. It’s a problem with Facebook and the “ticker” method that we consume information from there. Most people don’t actually go to my page, they just see things in their news feed and like/comment. Someone sees something from @WhatZombiesFear on their news feed, which reminds them they’ve been itching to read “Declaration of War”. So they ask on that post, even though that post may be about something else entirely. It’s nothing against my readers, it’s just the way facebook works. And it’s something it’s taken me a while to understand. Previously, in my head, I was thinking people would see something from WZF in their news feed and flip over to the page itself to read down through the last few items
The sixth book in the series “What Zombies Fear: The Incarnation” is off to a roaring start. The action is heating up, this is going to be an intense book, and I believe a great close to the series. I’m so excited to be writing it, and the ease with which it’s flowing. I LOVE writing this series!
