The world must be coming to an end. I swear to you!
My wife doesn’t like reading. She avoids reading as much as possible. We got her a Pandigital Novel e-reader late last year. Since then, I’ve been recommending books and she’s been gobbling up each of the e-books. A small victory for me. Side note, my wife really got into the HUNGER GAMES by Suzanne Collins; and now my wife is bugging me to read the series before the first movie comes out next year.
This is not why the world is coming to an end, though. What is bring down the fire and brimstone is the fact that my wife wants to read my book–my latest manuscript. She wants me to self-publish the manuscript. No agents have picked up the manuscript but everyone who has read the story loves it. She believes this is enough. So I made a deal with her. I told her that if she reads the manuscript, at least part of it, and likes it, I will move to self-publish and promote the novel.
She’ll be starting to read the manuscript soon. So watch the site, you may see that my first published novel will be released soon. By the way: this novel is the one that I was blogging the status late last year, MONSTERS. I’m also still playing with the idea of putting up one or two old novels that never made it out to the reading public. We’ll see.
