I had a big editing day completing 4 chapters and so only half a dozen left to complete. I quite enjoyed it or is that me being too big headed? It also seems that when I am becoming a little disillusioned about selling that something happens and a couple of the second book 'The 51st State' and one of the first 'The Biter Bit' have gone out on Kindle this week. I am easily pleased!
I also went to bed very excited last night! I had written a thousand words of my 4th novel! I just felt the urge and it was down on the computer in no time at all.

Other Stuff

There were some great and supportive comments from fellow authors yesterday and it culminated in the VBA as seen at the top of this blog.
I checked Kindle sales and found that 2 more books have been sold by Amazon which was great news.
All-in-all a good day let's hope that today is equally terrific.

God Bless
