I’ve been struggling with my proclivity to product kidney stones at an alarming rate. For the last three days I’ve had pretty intense kidney back pain; pain that doesn’t’ allow me to even take a deep breath, much less sit for an extended time in my chair. I’ve dropped eight stones (physical stones – not weight) in the last 25 days; I’m getting tired of it, considering that I’m doing everything that my Urologist wants me to do… Rats
I’m also seeing an amazing growth in the number of page views and total visits to our blog https://flaauthor.wordpress.com/ (this site). Over the last three months our readers have grown at a nearly 80% growth rate – month over month. In addition, last evening we broke through 100 Twitter followers (@CliffordF2). That means that is incumbent upon me to keep these posts fresh and interesting. You will have noticed that I am straying occasionally from the ‘progress monitoring on Views from Sandhausen’, to other timely topics that I find of interest. This is a good thing as I’ve just have been accepted as a Freelance Writer by suite101.com. Life has taken on a new dimension for me. I might even start making a little money.
As Five Rainbows was very near finalizing the paperback book version cover, I needed to get busy and finalize FlaAuthor Publishing, LLC’s corporate logo. I have been working on this for some time.
And, here is the finalized Paperback cover:
This is starting to get exciting. Five Rainbows is now working on the hardcover cover and book jacket. I wrote a succinct book marketing piece for View from Sandhausen and Walt used it, in part, for the back of the paperback. It is certainly the correct usage as that is the objective of the text on the back of a paperback. I need to see how that affects the content of the text that will be used for the hardcover book jacket content. So, once again, it is back to the keyboard.
An interesting aside, I have always used Dell Computers (at least the last five machines) out a total of perhaps ten or eleven PC’s total. I use my computer A LOT. This computer I bought in June of 2009. I have worn out this keyboard! It is worn out and it is sixteen months old! Amazing. That tells me about how much writing I have done in those sixteen months. Hopefully it has been worth reading; I sure had a great timing writing!
