CONTINUOUS IMPROVEMENT

Back in the time before my retirement when I was busy in the manufacturing arena we had a phrase related to our quality programs that indicated that we werent perfect but we were always trying to move in that direction. That phrase was ‘Continuous Improvement’ and it meant simply that our purpose was to improve our processes in exactly that manner over time.

When I wrote my first novel I was woefully unaware of what the editing process entailed or that it was even a basic necessity. This ignorance of the basic rules of my new occupation brought me some very poor reviews for editing mixed in with a majority of great reviews for content so I decided to utilize my old pre-retirement training to continually improve in my new found occupation.

The first step was to solicit the help of beta readers that would read the manuscript before publication and I installed grammar and spell check software for help in reviewing my manuscripts. While this certainly helped with the elusive typo errors some still slipped past and were discovered after each book was published and already in the marketplace. As quickly as I’m able now with five titles in both print and eBook versions I am correcting the errors that weve found and uploading the revisions to the printer. Does this make the book easier to read? Probably not since most of the errors that I now find are not recognized by my readers once they are engrossed in the storyline. I can’t even see them when I read through the first few times looking for them. What this does for me is tune up my ability to edit my own work and to pursue that perfectly crafted masterpiece that all authors dream about. It also lets my readers know that I do pay attention to their critiques in an effort to continuously improve my craft and make their reading experience more enjoyable.

News Updates

Well I am excited to be about one third of the way into the next novel! We have a working title The Freedom Wars Book One; Texas Rising that might get massaged a bit as the story unfolds. My biggest concern is that with all of the shenanigans in Washington the story will be acted out in real life before I get the darn thing published! Stay tuned for a preview as soon as I get the editing of the first few chapters finished.

We will be signing books at the R and K gun show in Nashville at the fairgrounds on October tenth and eleventh (next weekend) for anybody that wants to drop in a give us a shout. Midlandapril

Adapting to Kentucky

After several consecutive successful shows and many new readers in both Tennessee and Kentucky joining our growing group I have to say that Kentucky is starting to look better every day. Here is a picture of an area close to the Lexington Horse Park where we had a show a few weeks ago.

We recently finished a show in Murfreesboro Tennessee where I sold a set of books to our first astrophysicist! They were for his wife though but he might take a liking to some light reading.

One thing that I am excited about is the abundance of state lands that can be hunted or fished without paying an exorbitant fee to a large landowner. This weekend I am going to a public rifle range managed by the state and get the .260 Remington ready for deer season.  The following picture is of the lake at Pennyrile State Park:

We will be in Lebanon Tennessee on September 13th and 14th for another show so come on down and make us feel welcome.
