Getting it Wrong - A new Do Over Story

I've always been a big fan of the Do Over story. This is my second attempt with this story. The first attempt I sent out to a group of my readers because I wanted to see if I was on track. Thank goodness I did, because I think I broke ever rule and in their opinion a half finished first book.

I took their notes and rewrote Getting it Wrong. This will be the first in a trilogy - Getting it Done and Getting it Right.

I wrote this while I took a break from Stupid Boy. I also wrote Little Tony and Pia while I got my head back into SB. I've started two other books. One is the sword and sorcerer fantasy world. Between that and science fiction that was about all I read when I was younger. In the next week or so I will offer a look at the beginning and see if I am on the right track - much like I did with Getting it Wrong.

The other book I tried to pawn off the idea on a couple of authors, but they chickened out. The premise is a boy has an evil sister who torments him. He finally has enough and decides to sell her on Craigslist. You can sell everything on Craigslist - Right? There are two ways this could go - very dark or funny. I picked funny and I think you will like it. It is bringing out my inner Mark Twain. Small town likable boy who seems to get himself into trouble.

So before I go off on a tangent about how my job and family is more important that writing... lets get back on track.

Check out Getting it Wrong on Saturday.
