TFAV...

I do appreciate all the comments so far and look forward to everyone continuing to visit and responding to my posts. As far as my book goes, I'm in the process of reading another book called "The Scene Book". Professor D suggested I read it to help me develop more structure in certain areas of my book. To be honest, the book is finished as far as start to finish storyline. There has been too many edits to mention and not least of which a complete rewrite when I "finished" the book the second time. Professor D and I set down and talked about the book for an hour and a half... I came out of that talk with two books. So I went back and rewrote the first half of the original book to extend it to a complete book. The second half of the original book will now be the second book. Each book will be about one hundred years of time in the life of my vampire. I hesitate to reveal much more about characters, story, etc... but I will say that it is fictional, yet there are historical characters as well as historical storyline to compliment a very fictional vampire! Counting the first two books, I have a total of four stories that will make up about three hundred years of his life. If things go well, I plan on bringing my vampire to present day...

I'm excited to read it. I recently remembered that I have a copy of one of the first drafts you lent me. If you get rich and famous off your books how much do you think that copy I have will go for on Ebay? Lol! J/K!

I also wanted to tell you that from what you've let me read, you have a way with storytelling. I read a lot of books. All different kinds, and honestly Frank, your way with words and your ability to make someone visualize the characters and what's going on around them is amazing. I almost felt like I was in the story. Not everyone can achieve that kind of thing when writing and I truly appreciate anyone who can. It makes the story so much better that way.

Thanks Elise! I appreciate your comments. If you were to read the updated book, you would not believe how much it has changed. The flow of the book is so much better. I'm hopeful that this rewrite/edit will not take too much longer.

I know it can be hard to get through the writing process. Remember how I told you I got my laptop to make it easier to write that story I was working on? Yeah that was like forever ago and I still haven't finshed the first chapter! You are far more dedicated than I am! Anyhow, I'm sure your book will be amazing. It will all be worth it in the long run when all the hard work pays off, and you'll look back and think what an incredible journey it was. No matter what the outcome, your friends and family will all be very proud of you. :)
