Got a call from Penquin today, looks like they are going to do another edition, mass market paperback. This is the 4x7 size, roughly. They said Wal-Mart has shown interest, wanting this size book. That would be pretty cool, it would open a huge market for me. Not to mention the fact that it's another addition, Penguin's making a big deal out of that.

You mean you don't think some Good Morning pix would get some things stirring? Hell, I already had a theme in mind: PAWn Stars!

Will there be another editing run, or should I mark up a copy, add sticky notes, and forward it to someone?

I went to the library and put Books 1, 2, and 3 on hold for me. No telling when I'll get to read them. As soon as I have them read, I can go ahead and buy the others.

I loaned a copy of book 1 to the Assistant Director at C's day services program.

Yesterday he told me he's really liking it. I asked how far he'd read, he said Chapter 2. I told him it gets better. :D

Tell him not to read in bed if his wife's asleep. I STILL remember waking S up laughing at "It was a Snake kind of snake" and "Tastes like soap".

Almost finished with book I...... dang, I need to get some NVG's. :wow1: It's going to be a week before Book ll arrives. Should I go ahead and read lll and lV, since they are here? Do the stories continue from one book to the next?

Sacajawea
02-20-2015, 07:51 PM
Oh, the story continues from one book to another! I can't imagine not reading them in order.

angeryamerican
02-22-2015, 03:02 PM
Yeah, definitely read them in order.

Dode
02-25-2015, 07:09 PM
Thanks.... book ll still isn't here. How could the library buy l, lll and lV w/o getting the second one? Seriously, there is no record of them ever having the second one. Book l was good. While I'm waiting, I've read Avalon: The Retreat and it was a good read, too. Working on the second Avalon book. I hope to God that we never have to go through anything like that.

I finally got my book 4 in and since I already had 5 I read them both. I couldn't put em down. Read both books in a day and a half.
Loved the Whole series and hoping there will be more.

Gave it to the Assistant Director at C's Day Services program to complete his set. I had originally loaned him another copy of Book 1 and he bought 2-5 after reading it. He's currently 3/4 of the way through Book 4.
