Meandering on Monday with Janet Lane Walters #MFRWauthor
Meander 1 - Prices - Recently went to check out one of my favorite authors on Kindle and the price of his new book in the electronic form made me blink many times. I will not pay $13.99 for the electronic version of a book. Maybe I'm cheap but that's the way I see this. The highest I will go is $7.99 and even that doesn't sit right with me. The one thing I will never do is find one of those sites where one can find a sharer and download the book for free. I don't even enter contests where the prize is a free ebook. When I judge them in a contest, the moment the contest ends, I remove them from my computer. So this is my price protest for the day.
Meander 2 - The case of the spider. She came from the powder room, her face white with fear. There's a huge spider in there. I grabbed by handy can of bug spray and went inside expecting to see a spider at least the size of a tarantula or larger. I aimed the spray at the creature that was about the size of the nail on my pinkie. The moral of the story is when you're afraid of something it always seems larger than life. Must remember this when writing.
Meander 3 - Toth's Priest is moving forward, Have less that 10,000 words until the book is finished. Then it will be on to another story. This draft is the filling in of details that have been skimmed over or caught by the critique group,
