Nothing to Write Home About
Nothing interesting to say. Finished the Heaven’s Design Team anime the other day and need to find a new one. Also finished the K drama Romance is a Bonus Book. It was really good. Now it’s Amy’s turn to pick the next one, lol!
We finished Cobra Kai the other day – gosh I love that show. I didn’t think I would, wasn’t interested in it at all, but then hubby duped me into watching ir and it’s great! I love the character development in it and how even the “bad” guys get their moment to say, “hey, I don’t think I’m bad.” Because no one is a villain in their own story, and that’s a hard concept to pull off well, but they manage it.
Wow. Sounds like all I’ve been doing is watching TV. I wish! Got some book covers done. One set I really like.
Not that I don’t like others, but you know. Also been working on the gender swap and did some beta reading. And we got Christmas taken down, now I just need to deep clean and start painting ceiling tiles for the craft room.
Anyway, plenty to do, so I’m outta here.
Have a character development kinda day!
Inside the Worm
This is the last of mom’s poetry books, and it’s the one that bugs me. No, the poems are good, and the covers are fine, but the page color is white, while all the others are cream. In order to make them cream we have to unpublish it and completely re-publish it as an entirely new book, s white I guess they will stay. Ugh! Other than that, I’m happy with it.

Only one more of Mom’s poetry books after this one, which is the third new/previously unpublished one. Luckily the covers had already been figured out, though sadly she never got to see it as a paperback. I think it came out pretty good, though. And the poems inside are even better.

Tales from the Trees
We only have a few of Mom’s poetry books left – see how prolific she was? And don’t get me started on the box of handwritten stuff she never typed up. Eek! That’s gonna take awhile, though I’m not going to even start on it anytime soon.
Anyway, so after touching up her poetry books to update formatting and such, we’ve finally gotten the paperbacks and they look pretty good.

From the Pit
I’ve been posting my mom’s poetry books for a bit now – I know, I could have done them in one long post, but it would have been long, and they say don’t do that, so… Anyway, we finally got the paperback versions delivered, and I think they look pretty good. The photos don’t really do the cover justice here, but it’s close enough for a blog. This one is one of my least favorite of her books because it has a lot of politics in it, and I’m not huge on that, but they’re still good writes.

Tales from the Shattered Crystal
I’ve been posting my mom’s poetry books the last week or so. We had made plans to touch them up and put together the last three unpublished ones, but Mom never really got to home in a capacity to help with this, so I sadly had to do it after her death. We revamped both ebook and paperback, and recently got the paperback copies. I’m pretty happy with how they look.
This is one of the older books – unlike Rose upon the Water it doesn’t have a theme, per se, but instead has a sort of narrative; all the poems included are supposed to be tales told by the crystal.

Rose upon the Water
I’ve been posting my mom’s poetry books for the last week rather than piling them all into one blog. As I’ve mentioned, we had to touch up the formatting because of new requirements (we’d planned to do it when she came home, but, well, that didn’t pan out). We touched up both the ebook and the paperback, and a few days ago we finally received the paperback versions, and I think they look pretty good. This is the only book that has an overarching theme to all the poems.
Mom’s much longer description, thanks to her old blog: A collection of romantic love poems written while in the throes of my first real love, back when I thought forever meant forever and everything was thrilling. Back when my heart felt so full of mixed emotions I thought I would die. First love is such a magic time, a time when everything is bigger, stronger and somehow more real. I hope everyone will enjoy reading them and maybe share one or two with their significant other for Valentine’s Day. Just be sure to credit me.

Tales from the Lost Prophets
Over the last several days I’ve been sharing my mom’s poetry books. Because of new formatting rules, we had to touch them up, and have finally gotten to see the paperbacks. I’m pretty happy with how they turned out, and I think she would be, too.

Young Lions and Southern Pirates
I’ve been posting m mom’s updated poetry books the last few days because posting them all at once would be one crazy post. Thanks to new formatting requirements, we had to touch them up, in both ebook and paperback. The other day we finally got the paperbacks to look at, and they look great.
Mom’s slightly more detailed description: Young Lions and Southern Pirates is a collection of story poems about life, death, love, war and all aspects of mortal drama. Hopefully one or more may touch the heart of the reader or cause them to look at things in a different way. They are easy to read without the flowery language often used that’s difficult to understand.

Fun with My New Head
Over the last three days I’ve posted Mom’s poetry books – we had to update the formatting on them, and there were three that had never been published, including this one. This is the only cover that Mom had no hand in (all the others were completed before she went in the hospital in November), so hopefully she likes it – it seemed like it would be up her alley. These pictures don’t capture the cover very well, as it’s much brighter in person.
