Print edition now on sale

Trolls for dust, Season Two, print edition now on sale! And what a beautiful day it is, too! More notecards for The Stolen Necklace coming later today.

Korean dramas: I enjoyed the love story About Time on Viki, but the ending made little sense, mostly because there weren’t any rules for the time clocks, any reasons why certain people could see them, and nothing the people could do to change them. The power to change the clocks would mean power over life and death, so I can see why the matter was mostly skated around, but it left our heroes with really nothing to do most of the time. Lee Sung Kyung was great as usual, but she really shines in Cheese in the Trap, and Weightlifting Fairy Kim Bok Joo. Haven’t seen Lee Sang Yoon in anything else, but he was sufficient and his assistant, played by Kang Ki Doong, was hilarious. The best performance in the show, however, was Jung Moon Sung as the male lead’s brother. He broke hearts all around.

Other dramas I am sporadically watching are Big Man, Suspicious Housekeeper, and Are You Human Too? Biggest budget is definitely the last one and I have to say the lead, Seo Kang Joon, is holding his own, at least for the first couple of episodes. Always hit or miss with up and comers. Seo did so well as second lead in Cheese in the Trap, but one never knows until they are tried if they can really carry a show/film all by themselves.

As for Big Man, all of the actors nailed their characters and the plot keeps one guessing as to how it’s going to end. I will do a longer review of it in the future. Suspicious Housekeeper has an intriguing premise – sort of Mary Poppins/Nanny McPhee-ish vibes, but I’ve started many shows like this that quickly go downhill, so we’ll see if the intrigue holds.

Proof copy

Morning all!

Going through the proof copy today. It’s so awesome to see all of that hard work physically manifested and I am so grateful that there are place like Amazon and Lulu where writers can publish their works on their own terms. I’m pretty satisfied with how this second book turned out, and I can’t wait to publish more. Happy Friday!

Trolls for Dust, Season 2 avail. for preorder.

TFD FinalTfD2 is finally available for preorder with print version soon to follow. And it’s got the most fantastic cover. 🙂  I tell ya, it’s amazing how much a space can affect things when doing a book layout. Some of my chapter titles weren’t being picked up properly when converting to e-pub and all due to a space!

Next week I plan to continue the notecard story, The Stolen Necklace, so that will be fun, and although I really, really want to get chugging away at TfD3 (and 4), I have this semi-Cinderella tale I want to finish first.  More on that when publication time comes.

Also,  a dear friend of mine who is also a self-publisher has the beginning of a great series on sale called Blood of the Eohim. Check it out, especially if you are an animal lover, because it has animals with super powers in it! I’m not so into animals, but I love how you just know where you stand with them right away, especially dogs. They either love you or want to rip your throat out.

Okay, back to layout and my slow devouring of War and Peace (I am almost to page 500 and really enjoying Tolstoy as a writer.)

TfD2

Hi, All,

Well, I’m finally done proofreading my manuscript and starting in on corrections and then layout this week. If all goes well, Trolls for Dust 2 will soon be on sale, hopefully by August 1!! And I may soon have a cover image and a theme song to share!

With all that craziness going on, I’m putting other writing projects on hold, including this blog, so I won’t likely be posting much until the book is out. The Stolen Necklace notecard story has about 4 cards left to go, and it’ll be interesting to see how it all turns out. As for Korean dramas, I likely won’t have any review out, but I’m really lovin’ Yoon Sang Hyun these days. He’s been in a lot of major projects, considering that he went into acting in his 30s. He often plays the second lead and very flawed men, but he’s great at it, and isn’t too shabby when he’s the star, either. Catch him in Shopping King Louie and Ms. Perfect on Viki or Dramafever, and as a detective hunting down a serial killer in Gap-Dong, showing on Netflix. Yoon’s one of those actors who really brings out the best in his fellow cast members, so watch for that.

Fortified with kimchi rice and watermelon for dessert, I am ready to get to work. Fighting!

Just for fun.

The fun about writing a book series about a TV show, so many ad possibilities:

On another note, finished rewatching kdrama City Hunter and will have a review up in the next couple of days.  And looks like we’re finally going to be filming a TfD commercial.  🙂  Good times.  –Pixie
