This month has flown by.
Writing/Future Books: I got a good bit of writing on the third book done as well as a lot of research/design/thought into a new civilization that is going to make an appearance. Everything is going well though, and it looks like I’m still on target for this to be a four book series. I also elevated a secondary character from the first and second book to main character status in the third, so that’s been an interesting challenge. Luckily, they basically don’t get along with anyone, so it’s been fun to write about ’em.
Current Books: Racked up some more great reviews on Amazon and Goodreads for West of Prehistoric, still rocking a nice 4.7/5 with 37 reviews. I also personally sold about a dozen more signed copies on the forums that I mailed out last week. I’m going to admit it, it you ask me to write something in the cover without clarifying, you’re probably going to get a cheesy 80/90’s movie quote from Starship Troopers, Tremors, or Big Trouble in Little China. That’s just the way I roll and besides, who needs a knife in a nuke fight?
I also got a nice shout out on the Books of Gab group on GAB, where I recently made an account:
That’s pretty cool, and I’m excited for the book to get passed on to his kid. When I wrote the book, I wanted to make sure it was something that my kids could read, so I specifically kept the swearing to a minimum with no F-Bombs and no sex or anything. And so far, I seem to have done a good job. My nephew and son were both 14 when they first read it, and I got their stamp of approvals.
Current Reading: I’m currently reading What Are the Odds? From Crack Addict to CEO by Mike Lindell…. the MyPillow guy. It’s pretty good so far. My reading this month has dropped off pretty significantly, even though I got a signed hard copy of Gun Runner by Larry Correia and John Brown that is begging me to pick it up. I’m hearing it’s fantastic, so I need to hunker down and get some reading out of the way.
Gun Stuff: I mentioned on the blog I was given a Ruger Bisley Blackhawk in .44 Special by my parents for my birthday back in November. Well, at the time I figured it’d be hard to find ammunition for. Boy, was I was right. Four months later and I still haven’t come across any. But luckily for me, my dad has an awesome dentist who traded him a couple boxes of Blazer JHP for some pistol primers. With any luck, I’ll get out to the range soon and give it a try. I’m pretty excited.
Personal Stuff: Well, I’m about to be 28 days older by the time this month ends. That’s okay. I’ve done a fairly good job of putting those days to work. I wish I had gotten about twice as much writing done though, I feel like the third book is dragging along at a lot slower pace then I originally envisioned. I think I have this whole writing thing backwards… I should get more done during the fall/winter and less done during spring/summer, but it appears to be backwards to how I do it.
Current Political/Social Culture: A few random thoughts…
-There’s gonna be a lot of, “I told you so” to the left for the next four years.
-Also, the left will persecuted you no matter what you say, so you may as well speak the truth.
-‘No – Go Fuck Yourself‘ is not used nearly enough against the left when they demand you conform to their lunacy and immorality.
-My ancestors being compared to current migrants is apples to oranges. My ancestors hacked a life out of the wilderness, building a civilization, while migrants simply crossed a border then demanded the free fruits of my ancestors labor and sacrifice generations later.
-I don’t know how to be ‘less white’ for Coca-Cola, but I do know how to buy more Pepsi. (This is in response to the ‘training’ Coca-Cola did for employees, requiring them to act ‘less white’.)
-If you’re a man who doesn’t own a gun, are you even a man?
