I decided to include a section of news called Daily Dragon. It won't come daily but it sounded better than Any Other Day Hot News.
I started reading in the mighty and pleasant company of my grandfather. That was my first Book Club and I do cherish those memories and all the things I learned from discussing books with him.
The Somnibus Book I (Free Download January 10th and 11th) and This Little Piggy for permanent FREE download.
I had already told you about On-line course the Word Loss Diet of Rayne Hall in my post Books and On-line courses. Well, Rayne decided to make a book of her on-line seminar and it is already available for you on Amazon, Kobo, and Smashwords. I do highly recommend it.
"Tighten and tone your writing style and use simple tricks to slim down your manuscript. Shed thousands of words without changing the plot.
Strip away the word fat and reveal the muscle of your unique author voice.
The book is short but potent.
It is perfect for:
- Self editing before you submit your book to agents and publishers, or before self-publishing.
- Understanding why your stories get rejected, or why so few readers buy your book after downloading the sample chapters.
- Taking your writing craft skills to the next level.
- Polishing your writing style for the move from amateur to professional.
The book is based on Rayne Hall's popular class of the same title which has helped many writers shed word weight and develop a leaner, stronger writing style. Some authors say the class was the best investment they ever made. Now you can study the techniques in book form at your own pace."
It is official now. The book Jewels of the Sky has become international. The Dragon Cave in Mexico City has a paperback copy and it will take its place in the Dragon Ancient Library, started by my grandfather: Father Dragon "The Great" back in... Well, back then.
Thank you Catherine, this adventure has been a pleasure.
Last but not least, my word of honor is my greatest treasure. I did promise a Birthday Card with the Dwarves in Cheer Leaders outfits but I couldn't deliver on time because I was visiting far far FAR AWAY and Internet and time were scarce. Upon arrival, I found myself drown in urgent matters, so this had to wait for a few more days. It arrives 10 days late but better late than never. A dragon is not more worthy than the value of its word, so Jeff, here they are, Sessin, Milin, Pancholin and Tassin, hairy legs and all. This might not be Las Vegas show but they practiced a lot!
(If anyone is interested in hiring them to cheer you up in your sad days, contact their Manager; Father Dragon at 01 800 -HAPPY DWARVES- or better contact me by mail, hahaha.)
