Friday Funnies: Books & Bugs!

Hello, Posse!

I hope you have had a wonderful week. Personally, I am so pooped! I had to run out today in the heat to run errands and since I do not have a car here yet, that meant waiting for public transportation. I do not mind using this mode of transport here. because they have a great set up in out town. It's very convenient, which is why we haven't been in a rush to get a car. However, it can make for a long, hot trip around town.

I thought since I was going out before the heat of the day and there was a cool breeze I would be good. Nope, I was still just worn out by the time I got home. The good news is I have new glasses and can see what I am doing on the computer so much better than before.

I am sure some of you are wondering how things are going on part 5, Into the West: To Save Them All. I just finished the first round of edits/rewrites last night. I plan to do one more quick listen using text to speech to go through one more time then it goes off to the beta readers for a quick check. It should get my professional editor next week. As soon as he gets it back to me I can get it uploaded and a publication date set. My hope is to have this one out at the end of the month with part 6 Into the West: Last Showdown out in July. It is close enough to being finished I feel safe hoping for that. Check out the updated information at (<--- click to go)

Have a great weekend, posse!
