Yeah, I will. Thanks Del. Probably a bit of over share going on here, TBH. You would expect me to be a basket case with all this going on, and more besides, but I feel OK. If anything, I'm just a bit worried that I'm not reacting normally to these things, or how you or I would expect to react to it all. I probably should be feeling a whole gamut of emotions from the cancer, for which they've now recommended chemotherapy, and the death of a parent. I'm just not feeling it. I've got the normal worries of work life, nothing has really changed. I'm still a bit sore from surgery, but life is pretty much back to normal for the time being.

Wow, he certainly doesn't sound like a very nice person, to put it mildly. I can see why you've cut all ties. Only you can decide - but do you need closure? Hasn't that already happened? Blood is one thing. Family is something totally different. But, like I said, only you can decided. Hope you're feeling okay, physically and emotionally with everything.

Take it easy.

Sorry to hear your publisher has thrown the towel in, Del. I hope the new one woks out well for you. :afro:

So the western publisher stopped publishing westerns as there's no money it. Which is a shame as I have a finished MS and a half-finished MS and an idea for a whole series on the back of one of these. As mentioned earlier on this thread I have been considering self-publishing, but I'm a lazy sod and this looked like a lot of effort.

Anyway, to cut a long story short, another western writer in the same boat has published a couple of his completed MS's with Wordwooze - a Californian Co who will do an ebook, an audio book, and sometimes a paperback. He's had no issues and says they're good to work with.

So I subbed my MS to them and they've accepted it (I'm so used to rejections, that anytime someone says Yes I think "What's the catch?"). I don't expect much other than it being nice that the book is out there and, hopefully, it'll be reason enough to write some more in the series, which I've been looking forward to doing, but have needed an outlet to inspire me.

Still waiting for that moment in life when I have enough time to really, finally, be able to throw some proper time at writing. When that point comes around I shall try and up the engagement level between my writing and the world! Meanwhile, I think this is  good news.

Cool :afro:

I think I'll extent the dealine until the end of Feb. I've got a flash brewing in my mind, but it's not down on Word yet

Hey Ed. Great to hear that it all went well and you're now recovering. It sounded a little painful - a lot painful - but at least you're through the dark days! Great write-up, too :-) You've still got it  ;)

Pharo, great to hear from you. I was only looking at your website a little while ago. At the time, I was working on something that had I finished would have needed a decent editor... Sorry to hear about the tough times you've been through. Hope things are on the up for you, too.

And Russell, that must have been awful. I can't imagine going through such a thing. I hope things are good, or at least better, for you, as well. I'm trying to manoeuvre myself into an early retirement position. But every time I think I have things lined up the goal posts shift -  Brexit, then various accounting scandals, then the pension scheme was wound up, then our bit of the company was sold off... Still, here's hoping!

Must have a look at Ed's Flash challenge now...

Derek

Thanks Omega.

Russel -- can't imagine how awful that was for you and your wife. Sorry to hear that. Sounds like a good plan to retire and live your best life for a while. I keep promising myself a year off to do what I like, but I never get there, as a new opportunity seems to pop up and I find myself going for it again. Maybe it's time to get on and do it now.

So glad to hear the surgery was a success Ed! A wonderful update to read, and good luck in the continuing recovery!

Ed,

I'm so glad the op was successful, that you're recovering well, and the outlook looks positive.  Also cheered to see the flash challenge.

When I read your post I feared for you.  Five years ago a lump was found on my wife's liver. In her case the cancer had spread and she died just 15 weeks later.  This was a hard in-your-face demonstration that life is so fragile.  As a result I've managed to get into a position where I can retire early (61).  I **think** I have done my sums right!  Instead of working on other people's projects I'm going to spend time doing things I want to do and (try to) achieve things I want to achieve. Basically, growing my vegetables, developing computer games, and may be a little writing from time to time.  Simplish things I've wanted to spend time on for a long time.

All the best, and follow the doctor's orders!
