I am not dead.
I've been quiet on here for some time now. Between writing and taking classes and keeping house time has been ridiculously scarce. Oh, that and I
believe I had Covid19 in late February. I was out sick for five weeks. I'm better now. Yes, I am whining, but I am also going to let you know that "Seedling Jack," is still pending pick up by an agent or publisher. The feedback I have received about the book so far has been encouraging but not terribly thrilling. The problem seems to be that I am a new author and this story is a bit of a gamble. It's not a Y.A. book. It is also not exactly horror, but there is a bit of graphic violence. There are some funny parts, but it's also about murder. It has Ghosts, but it's not a haunting. I am tempted to self-publish, but it leaves me feeling less... Less is about it. Just less. Vanity Press has never given me goosebumps. In fact, that is what I am doing here on this webpage, self-publishing.
I know you're out there. I've seen you come and go, and not leave comments, save for a scant few. This week, I will be giving away digital copies of, "Seedling Jack," complete and uncut, to anyone to would like to leave a new comment on Mayachrome.com, or on the Facebook page. All new comments will be treated as a request for the book. I will be sharing Jack with the first twenty people to leave comments. Be sure to give me some form of digital contact information. I assure you, Jack is not like any book you've read.
I hope to hear from you all soon.
