Again this year I decided to have my own Black Friday sale--all week until Sunday the 29th.

This year that sale includes my story sets. One five story Science Fiction set and one seven tale Fantasy set. I am sorry to say that each set is not up at Amazon but they are at the other two locations I list.

But I have my two novels at each of the three and other places like iTunes and Kobo.

He also has to deal with a traitor, a bank robbery, one tough knife fighter, chases and fire fights on the run.  around 56,000 words for $3.50  Even though for a reason I don't know it's still full price at Barnes and Noble-hopefully that will change.

 Above My Pay GradeX2  An exciting tale of NA, an young woman with emotional issues, who has a special ability to manipulate the very core vibrations that make up matter and energy. It's a Urban Fantasy story along the lines of the Dresden Files(Jim Butcher), The Walker Papers(C. E. Murphy), Alex Verus (Benedict Jacka) and The Retriever series(Laura Anne Gilman). NA has to content with Ghosts, a grizzly bear, an upset Griffin, an abuser, a potential rapist, while she tries to figure out why others like her are getting sick and what disaster she is suppose to stop while she deals with her emotional baggage.  96,000 words at $3.99

A series of Healthy Relationship messages from my pastor

Bill Chaney did a series of sermons titled "Health Relationships" based on the Fruit of the Spirit.

For those who don't know the Fruit is produced  in us by the Holy Spirit-He does the hard work produce it in our lives from the inside out. The Fruit are love, joy, peace, longsuffering, gentleness, goodness, faith-faithfulness. Each message uses one, sometimes two of these to show how to have a healthy relationship with others. Much of the emphasis is on marriage but other type of relationships are included too. 
If you are having problems with a relationship or just want to make one even better try these podcasts. The Bible does have much to say about such things, using a understanding of what makes people tick and how to deal with it. 
These are presented with humor, common sense, the Bible, and even some personal experiences by Bill. They start with Love and go on, touching many issues of a relationship. 

There are outlines you can download with each message. They have the basic outline but with places for you to fill in too. 

So enjoy and learn:

Number one 
Number two
Number three
Number four
Number five
Number six

Nano update Thursday Nov 12

I got carried away the other night, went to bed a bit late because of it. I was typing along during a fight scene for my MC when I happened to glance up at the clock on my computer. Whoa, late and I hadn’t gone online yet. So I just shut down the writing, figured I had gone over the revised-downward-amount I wanted to do for the day. But it was late so I didn’t check how many words. Just did and I almost got to my original goal for the day. That’s like a thousand words I did while being carried away. The fight scene isn’t that long but it’s last four to six hundred words. 

So at the moment I am ahead of the word count NaNo says we should have done by this time. Saturday was good too, I went past my goal a bit which caught me up and now this. Good. :)

So my MC is being set up for her big “run” which will probably take up the last third of the book. At least for NaNo. Once I am down I will be revising it and lengthing it so I will probable have her do one or more others runs. BTW “runs” or “a run”is what I decided to call it when she does her courier thing. It could be two hours or week or more depending if the delivery is in town or across country. She hasn’t done any out country yet but she knows Couriers who have. 

Speaking of revising: the way I write I go back and do some revising as I go. I remember something I wanted to add but forgot at the time or I decide what I said could have been done better. Usually only a page or ten but at times I have gone back half way through the book. I haven’t gone more than four pages with this one but it could happen.

I am having fun coming up with scenes and events and showing her personality. I have said before I don’t do an outline even though I may have some scenes in mind I need to plug in somewhere. The fight scene was thought up when I got to it. It hadn’t even entered my mind to do something like that-my MC is helping another courier who was attacked by a gang-but I wanted a danger scene in this chapter and this fits. It’s the second chapter which will end after the fight scene.

It's set in our time if I can figure out how to include some references to our recent past. Like WWII and the Cold War. 

There is not internet, no cell phones even though I seem to have included electricity. Every vehicle is steam powered and they only have airships. 

Some 20,400 words plus what I did today so close to 21,000 words so far.
