ROW80-3 07/07/2019 Peace and Quiet

Well, it's been a busy/loud week. My grandson was over in the days -not loud, but 11 yr olds o like to talk.Especially to their favourite grampa. But there were contractors off and on working on the roof. Saturday morning they started at 6:30!

Fame and fortune to follow. My dilemma was choosing which one to focus on, but some friends helped me with that. We've picked the most interesting/marketable one,The Ghost in the Machine. The plan is that when I'm not bust writing Flash Fiction or marketing my existing works, I polish that work.
