Time to take a break from writing.

I’ve written four novels, about 400 000 words total (including revisions) in the past year. I’m not burned out, but I’m ready to take a little time off from writing and get the books ready for publishing. All of them are in reasonable shape except for cover art, title pages, and an interactive Table of Contents. That last is the only thing that’s kicking my butt; it’s done almost-automatically if you’re using Word for Windows, but it must be done manually if you’re using Word for Mac. And so far, nothing is working.

Still, I anticipate publication next month. I’d rather take the time to do it right instead of hurrying, and that’s why it’s taking so long. The books are part of two series, The Wizard Series and the Darwin’s World Series. The titles are Combat Wizard, Wizard at Work, Darwin’s World, and Darwin’s World II: The Trek. I’ll be publishing under my name, Jack L Knapp. I hope you’ll watch for them. I think I’ll publish on Amazon first, possibly on Smashwords later.

So if you’ve wondered why I abandoned this blog, that’s why. I’ve been too busy writing fiction.
