Walker IV has been available on Amazon for a few days now. Amazon had it up about five hours after I hit the post button, which is fast for them – they say it will be twelve hours.
Funny thing happened when I went to see if it was available: Someone beat me there and bought a copy. That’s okay with me, of course, it just seemed strange because it couldn’t have been available more than a few minutes.
Ann looked over some of the text and found a couple of my errors. I went over it multiple times. Then I sent it to Forest, who won his masters in teaching before I was even born (he’s old!). He found some grammar he wanted changed and even found a couple more spelling errors.
Each time I “edited” the word count grew. After Forest got done with the text, I read it over yet again and again made more changes and added a little more here and there.
Oh, and I used a different cover, too:
For some reason, I liked this one better than the one posted below. The one below might fit in with the text a little better, but I guess it doesn’t matter all that much.
Will there be a book five in the series? Yeah, probably. That was the plan, anyway. I thought that I would start a little advertising with the fourth in the series while writing the fifth. Then stop writing for a while after the fifth was publish and dedicate some of my time to advertising.
Meanwhile, now that I have some writing practice, I’ll go over the early books to insure the quality is the same in all of them. Because, when I reread the first novel I saw that it needed work. . . .
Hey . . . I’ll admit it. The first one was practice. I’ve improved a lot since then. So, I’m working on the first one to raise the quality a lot.
I don’t expect to win any writing awards with this project, but I want the novels to be readable and interesting. And I sure do not want any glaring errors to distract from the story.
So, I’ll be busy for a while.
