The Future of Miscorrection

I'm back. After a brief hiatus from the Miscorrection series for the past four months, I'm feeling refreshed and rejuvenated. I'm ready to get back into writing the series.


Last week, I started writing the story after outlining it roughly the week before. The Book 2 story has been in my head for years, so getting it outlined was not an issue. But  I did have an issue with my approach.


As you may know, I wrote Book 1 of Miscorrection as a series of six novelettes/novellas. I did this for a number of reasons, but the main one was my inexperience in writing. Writing Book 1 as a novel felt overwhelming, so I broke it down into six smaller stories that I could manage.


Great idea at the time, but as I thought about writing Book 2, I felt that approach might be wrong. After debating it in my head for a few weeks, I decided to write Book 2 as a novel. It will work out better and allow me to develop the plot in fuller detail.


This has left me with a minor problem. If Book 1 is six shorter stories and Book 2  is a novel, do the two compliment each other? Or do they make the series confusing? I think it is the latter. So, I am overhauling the series a little. No, I'm not rewriting Book 1 as a novel. Rather, I will take the "Book 1" completely off the title and rename it to Miscorrection: Preludes. The book I'm writing now will be titled in a similar fashion.



Instead of publishing a new book for this change, I will update Miscorrection: Book 1 (Sunrise to Sundown) with a new title, cover, and some inside changes. Currently, all sales of the book are on the Amazon Kindle, so I will make Amazon aware of the update so they can contact the customers who bought it already, if they want the new copy. This only applies to the eBook version as the print version will remain as it is. Who knows, maybe that one and the standalone eBooks of each story will be collector's items in a few years!


It was a tough decision to do this, but I think ultimately a very important one. As I continue to write Miscorrection 2, I'll reveal more information about it.

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.

This option is available through the Smashwords website using the coupon code listed below. (This coupon cod…
