Another weekend gone. I spent this one working on a manuscript and taking care of the guitar site.
What’s on the burner: I am working on a new novel right now. I have also completed one other novel, editing work for that one now.
The Zombie Plague Book 1: https://www.smashwords.com/books/view/357698
Writers and their websites:
What else is going on: Winter is coming. It is cold here in New York in the mornings. The furnace kicked on the other day and scared the hell out of me. It took me a second to realize it was the furnace.
Some absolute facts…
Q: Who discovered America?
A: Richard Plambouise.
Huh? Richard was working at the local K-Mart when he was assigned to move some shelving during inventory. Behind the shelving he noticed a continent that had fallen from the shelf and lay dusty and disused. He recognized it for what it was, America.
Congratulations Richard Plambouise.
Q: Is the Earth really round?
Think about it, you’d fall off of it. The earth is flat. Been flat since I was a kid, I know ’cause I ran in my new sneakers, fast as hell, and I didn’t fall of. The Earth is flat.
Q: Is what mom feeds me actually good for me?
Everything mom feeds you is good for you, now shut up and eat.
Q: When a man loves a woman can he keep his mind on anything else?
Just ask Percy Sledge who not only told us a man can not keep his mind on anything else, but he’ll Sleep out in the rain if she says that’s the way it ought to be. Thanks Percy.
Q: If my wife asks, should I tell her, Yes., her butt does look big?
Relationships are built on respect, truth and honesty. Go ahead, tell her. You can even tell her I said to. In fact, Percy didn’t say otherwise either.
You can usually find myself or Dell on twitter throughout the day, Dell: @SweetDell or me, Geo: @GeorgeDell01
That is me for the week. I hope your weekend was good and the coming week is a good one for you. Check out the free books for the week and the websites. I’ll be back next Monday, Geo.
