Daily Update: Awake from a long winter’s nap
Wow, I’ve been away for aq few days. To be perfectly honest, nothing has happened in those days. Other than Christmas, time spent with the family and friends, and a lot fo relaxation. I watched a lot of TV (Old Twilight Zone Episodes) and a lot of movies (reviews for many on their way).
It was strange that when I was watching the Jack Klugman episode of the Twilight Zone, I found out he had died that morning. That was rather strange. I love watching old television shows and movies. To see these old actors when they were younger is just amazing. Watching movies like It’s a Mad, Mad, Mad, Mad World and seeing all the stars and cameos. Lots of fun.
So what did I watch that I’ll be reviewing? All the Alien Movies (and Alien Versus Predator movies). All the Invasion of the Body Snatchers. All the Fly movies. All the Ghostbuster movies (and the 1940 Ghost Breakers and the Disney version Lonesome Ghosts which is the first ghost exterminitor flick I could find)
I’ve had a great time just relaxing, recharging the old batteries and getting ready to hit 2013 as hard and as fast as I can. I was going to spend more time plotting and planning, but that just didn’t happen. I really needed this time to get my head straight and understand that I can’t go 1000 MPH 24/7 without stopping. I had a great run for 2012 and I know deep down that 2013 will be a resounding success.
I’ve decided to have low expectations. Why? I don’t want to disappoint myself. I had high expectations when i first released Astel and I was saddened by the lack of sales. Well, that was my falut by not following through. I dropped the ball. I didn’t keep things going that I had planned on doing. I didn’t run the contests I wanted to run. I didn’t drive people to the site in the way I wanted to.
So for 2013 you’ll be seeing and hearing a lot more from me. There will be contests, giveaways, announcements, a mailing list for you to sign up to, all sorts of fun to be had. There’ll also be content, content, content. Each book I release I’ll be putting out the chapters for free through the blog with a link to where you can buy the book. I should be able to have content for nearly every day once I start putting the book out.
Of course each step in this journey I’ll be blogging about so you’ll know where I’m at in the process with each book and what I’m doing to get them all in order and ready to publish. Hopefully we’ll all learn something along the way.
I’m excited. I’m refreshed. I’m invogorated. I’m ready to get this party started. I’m glad you’re along for the ride.
