The time has finally come for me to announce that my book is FINALLY FINISHED!
Seven months of hard work has finally paid off. Not only have I learned how to write, but I have also learned how to grammar… wait no that’s bad grammar! But seriously, my grammar has greatly improved, compared to when I started writing anyway.
The only thing that is preventing me from publishing my book now is an author picture. I don’t want to publish it until I can get dressed up in my gay uniform, that being my “Legalize Gay” t-shirt that I got from the Human Rights Campaign from when I volunteered with them a few months ago at the gay pride here in Bakersfield. Although I am not set on that shirt as being the only thing in the photo, I may bring a dress shirt. Who knows, I may combine them and wear the dress shirt unbuttoned on top of the Legalize Gay shirt. We’ll see.
I was going to use my own domain xanapus.com as the hub, but decided to buy a new domain name www.diaryofagaynerd.com with links to Amazon, Barnes & Noble, Rainbow eBooks, GetGlue, Facebook, Twitter and here. Of course I’m paying every month for 1 single html page lol. That doesn’t seem fair since I have a lot of space over here, but whatever.
Oh I mentioned GetGlue, yeah I haven’t really talked to them yet but I sent a tweet to one of the GetGlue people that I know. I want to offer a sticker for my readers. I already have the sticker made, I just need to give them the file so they can give it to people when they check-in. Although I don’t know if a lot of writers offer stickers for books, maybe I’m the first. Wouldn’t that be awesome if I were? How cool would that be? I’m a GetGlue pioneer LMAO.
So I will just focus my energy now on getting that picture so I can publish it. Hopefully tomorrow, but no promises.
I do have future plans for another book, actually a series of fictional stories about my character Xanapus from the game EverQuest. Of course I won’t be able to write about Norrath, I will have to make up my own fantasy world. That will just make it more fun to write if I make things up as I go. I will probably start the first story with a short story to make sure I know how to write fiction, of course I will be taking a course on writing fiction first. It was one thing to write an autobiography because I didn’t have to make anything up, a story based on one single character living in a world that doesn’t exist yet is going to be the difficult part. If I can write a short story with one little tiny quest, then we will see if I have what it takes to write a 200-300 page novel, 8 of them in total to be exact. Yes, I am aiming high lol. Don’t hold your breath…
Until tomorrow when I have more news about the book that I already wrote…
