Last night I allowed Stephen Hawking to read my latest novel to me.
Don’t buy that?
Yeah, he is dead, but his spirit can still be here cant it?
Ok, you got me, my MacBook, which I had to get so I could use Vellum, does a bang-up job of reading my novels back to me one chapter at a time. Why on God’s green earth would I do that?
You, You’re, and Your are three reasons, and the list goes on. Our minds know what we wrote, and our eyes will gloss over the mess-ups much like those stupid little things on Facebook, that says if you can read this you’re a genius. PFFT! Anyone can read them!
Stephen or the apple will not gloss over the clumsy sentence or suit vs. suite or breath vs breathe. If it does not sound right, stop and edit.
I use three methods of editing, at least three.
Word, as I am writing.
Pro writing aid, although I must tell you it is prone to screwing up and Grammarly.
As I am putting the manuscript into Vellum if you want the chapter, titles to be something other than Chapter 1, etc you need to edit them. That is what I do. Pick a chapter, write the name and then let ol’e Stephen read my chapters to me.
Please don’t mistake my mocking of his animated voice as anything other than humor. Truth told that is one person that I would love to have met. I have all of his books and have absorbed them, as he was genuinely brilliant. He is also a bit of a hero if you think about it. How many of us would just lay down, roll over and die, if that were us?
Anyway, I tease, but that is all it is. No disrespect meant, implied, or even thought of remotely.
So what about my latest novel?
Ok, if you like Beauty and the Beast, you will love this story.
If you liked House of Cards, you would love this story.
If you like Christian Gray, you will Effing love this story!
Let’s see if you like Romeo and Juliet…you will love this story!
If you are an agent and not contacting me…you are messing up. I am close to self-publishing as I genuinely despise the query letter process. It sucks… “if you never hear from us consider it a pass…PFFFT!”
I know that Bezos and Corker will make the brunt of the money, but at least it will get out there, and you the readers will get to give me some feedback. With all of these novels, I must be getting close to hitting a home run. Damn a sports analogy!
This story will have you laughing, crying, ‘horny’ guy or girl… and if you are one of the cam girls I write about, ladies…buy this book and read it. I just about have step-by-step instructions in there on how to make money being a cyber porn star. My eyes! I think I am going blind from researching this subject.
MFC yes My Free Cams should make this novel required reading!
One of my twitter followers, bless her heart, had on her bio, Cyber Slut! Darling thank you for posting that because I am here to tell you, had I not followed your link, I would never have known any of this existed.
During my research, I discovered there are multiple sites like this, all with a thousand ‘models” or more on each, trying to make it as a ‘model.’
Darlings I am not judging you one bit. At least learn how to do what you are doing, so you make money for your efforts…Yes…I have some detailed instructions as my ladies try to figure out how to entice girls to prostitute themselves out in such a way to come to the island.
“Come to the island…Can’t you just hear some big man with a Jamaican accent inviting you to ‘the island?”
Cannot say this in my book but, here on the blog I can say ‘there is no short guy saying ‘the plane the plane!”
I made a few changes to the cover art, which if some Agent should find they will probably get a professional to do it but, for now this is what it will most likely look like.
Want the pitch?
Go to my website www.authortwscott.com find the contact page and come say ‘hello.”
For the rest of you…Thanks for the follows. I honestly do appreciate it when you hit that subscribe button. Some of you take the time to comment, and I love that too.
Much Love -TW
