Miscorrection: Preludes

Introduction

Over the course of three to four years, I came up with a story during my commute to work. As I thought about this story, I came up with the major plot points, cliffhangers, characters, and so on. But there was one problem: I never wrote the story!


Then, in early 2010, I noticed that Amazon offered the ability for any writer to self-publish their works on the Kindle. This excited me as I realized this would be a great avenue (along with all the others I have discovered) for me to write my story. I didn’t want to write a novel though. I wanted to do something different. I came up with something I really liked: I would tell the story in an episodic type format, much like a television series. Each story would take around an hour or so to read, would stand on its own, but when combined they would tell a bigger story.


That’s exactly what I did. In May 2010 I published the first story in the series. Based on events that would take place, I entitled the series Miscorrection and the first story was called Sunrise.


As I think back to that first story, I had some great dreams for the series’ direction and where it would go. But I never considered that over the course of writing the series, and other stories that I have self-published, that I would learn so much. It’s for this reason that I think that Miscorrection: Preludes is a testimony to the progress I’ve made as a writer. As you start with Sunrise and make it to the last story, Sundown, you’ll no doubt see improvement in the storytelling.


Which leads me to a challenge for you as the reader. This book goes from story one to story six, the order that they were released. But I always felt that they could be read in any order the reader wants. So if you want to start with story six and go backwards, do it. If you want to skip around, maybe go two, five, four, three, one, and six, do it. While the stories stand on their own, they refer to each other in different ways. In this way, you as the reader have an opportunity to make Miscorrection unique. You can experience the story differently based on the order you read it.


Whatever you decide to do, I hope you enjoy reading the stories. I hope they capture your imagination, make you think, and keep you talking.


Have fun!

How to Make a Face Mask

The United States' president and some governors are now recommending people wear a face mask to help prevent the spread of the COVID-19 virus. They're also asking that the N95 masks be reserved for healthcare workers as they help those who are suffering from the virus.

In light of this, you might be wondering if you can make one yourself?

In the video below, my wife demonstrates how to make a reusable face mask for you and your family. Though this won't guarantee prevention of the spread of the virus, it is in line with what we're being asked. Every little bit can help!


Quaratined or Stuck at Home? Here are some free books.

The global crisis regarding the COVID-19 virus (or coronavirus) is affecting anyone and everyone. Whether you get the virus or not, in some way, our lives are being impacted. Schools are closed. Parties discouraged. Social distancing encouraged. Entire countries in lockdown. Toilet paper being bought up like it's gold. The list goes on and on.

Pretty stressful stuff for sure. Something out of a movie or book. Something none of us have ever experienced to the point that it might be surreal.

You probably find yourself stuck at home right now, looking for something to do. Netflix, Disney+, video games, books. Those are probably keeping everybody company.

I'd like to give you something to occupy your time while you wait this thing out. So, starting today until the end of the month (or possibly longer depending how all of this goes), you can read any of my books at no cost. This option is available through the Smashwords website using the coupon code listed below. (This coupon cod…
