Crash and Bounce


Nearly had the Stinz novel laid out, when the puter crashed. I hadn't saved it onto the backup that day.

Not a LOT of screaming.

Am now laying it out without the damn "thou" forms. TRY to find all that language. Thank Gods for Find/Replace function in Open Office.

Once I have it up at Lulu, I'm never touching it again. Except to turn it into Courier and send it to another publisher. I've had it with the damn thing.

Now I have to get the newest AFTERDEAD scanned and ready to go. I finally finished all the pages for 1.3.

And now I can get all those scans for the BIG Desert Peach collection ready for Lulu. I'll check out publishers, too, to see if they'll take it for a Telephone Book. Lulu only allows 470 pages at a time -- which makes four books in the Final Collection.

In the meantime, I'm going to be writing a Desert Peach fanfic, for a specific genre. Yes, I'll write fanfic on my own stuff. 25 cents a page. And you just have to be ready for the fact that I am a hard-mouthed writer; if you send me what you want, you never know where it will go.

But that's a good thing.

Darlin'!! Even Anais Nin and George Barker charged a buck a page to their society patron, and that was for custom porn. And that was before Pfirsich had any grey hairs.

I'd gladly take $1.00 a page; but my readers are highly intelligent and discerning -- not qualities which are usually rewarded in this society with the wealth that can be counted.
