I'm back, well-fed and rested. I hope all of you enjoyed the festive season.
I wasn't going to write anything today, but I was struck by a confluence of events that culminated in a perfectly-cooked steak and the final chapters of my audio book being forwarded for my review. I haven't written or done anything related to writing for almost a month.
The steak that I bought was too thick and I was worried that I would ruin a beautiful piece of meat. The butcher had no choice as he gave me the bone along with the rib-eye meat. Unfortunately, I didn't take a picture; the above was the closest I could find. I covered the meat with Montreal seasoning, cooked it on full heat for five minutes on each side and then put it in the oven at 250 for five minutes. After letting it sit for a few minutes, I alowed myself to cut into it. It was perfect. Pink without blood spilling everywhere with firm flesh that was red in the very middle. It melted in my mouth. It was the best 32 ounze steak I've had for a while...
The meat cranked up my body temperature and mood. (I didn't ruin it with a salad or potatoes...or anything, for that matter.) I went to my computer and saw the most recent chapters of my new book in audio format. My narrator (Michael Gwynne) is amazing and has brought my books to life. I think we'll have Slaves of Circumstance done and dusted in the next week or so. We are working on a six-book series. Assuming we finish it in the next three months (or so), I'll begin marketing it in earnest. 2017 is going to be all about marketing.
That being said, I am told that my website/blogs need to also be about other people and things. I am also told that no-one calls these musings blogs anymore. Can anyone tell me what I'm supposed to call these things? I also read that Twitter and Facebook are going the way of MySpace. I only joined last August; is the party already over?
Please help me. Tell me what content you want on these postings. If you don't, I'll keep nattering on about my life, my journey as a writer/publisher, and other things that take my fancy.
Until the next blog/posting/thing, onwards and upwards!
