Yeah...I didn't forget about this blog...

It's been a few weeks since I've posted anything on here. (This is the part where I name my excuses for neglecting the blog...drum roll please...) I've been very busy. Class, kids, and relationship stuff have taken up a large chunk of my time and somewhere in there I have tried (tried being the operative word there...yeah, the blog's not the only thing I've neglected lately) to type up and clean up the next book on the assembly line for distribution. Don't get excited. At the rate I'm going, I'll be about 65 when Rapunzel is added to the list of published stuff. lol This is NOT your life blog, Keair....I can hear those very few who read this call out...and you are right.  It's about Castles. Well, my latest Castles news is that I've started to query agents again for the book. I am hoping of course to get someone who is not me to push this damned book. That whole 'why pay someone else to do what you can do for free' philosophy that I live by in  many areas of life does not extend to the promotion and distribution of Castles Made of Sand. The first reputable agent that asks for it can have that responsibility. Same goes for the publisher said agent finds. In the meantime, it's just me, myself, and the voices in my head running this show and we have all decided that I shall try harder to add to the soundtrack on here in the days to come. If nothing else, let me entertain you, right? :) So, to the two people or so actually reading this, I will try harder on that end, if nothing else. Good tunes is good tunes and it is my civic duty to pass them around. lol Oh, there are still two copies of Castles left to whomever wishes to take them. I give you the book, you give me  a review, and we both go home happy. That's how I work the barter system.

Ya Know......(Three Free Copies of Castles Left)

So I had this brilliant idea at 3:30 this morning that instead of sleeping, like a normal human being, I was going to be me and check into creating a website for the book and me because I wrote the damned thing so I have to be included....Now, I have NO idea what I am doing. That alone should make me pause before attempting it at such a late hour...right? Yeah, that's a theory...It's wrong but it's not a half bad theory. I have spent the last two hours stumbling around to try to make a website. Anyone who knows me well would tell you that even though this was my bright idea and I alone can be blamed for it, it is now almost 6 a.m., I am still not sleepy, and I am an irritated grump at this point. I decide I am going to set up the blog part of the site and go to sleep. I assume I will be able to just sync it with this one so I can just write on here and, like on Goodreads, it will magically appear there. Yeah....no. Not an option. After a little bit of internal screaming I am resigned to this and I decide that I will work on copying and pasting entries from here to there only to find that, unless (and I hope this is the case) this is a temporary problem, there is something wrong with the blog feature and I can write a headline but it will not let me type anything into the content box. So I am done with this little website adventure for the night. DONE! 
And that has been my frustrated rant for this post....
There are still three free copies of Castles Made of Sand available in exchange for a review on Amazon. Again, in case you missed the last post, just send me your e-mail address and I will e-mail the whole monster to you. And remember, you can preview the first twelve chapters right here if you would like before agreeing. First come first serve on this one, boys and girls, so come and get it. :)
