07/09/2021: Still Hurting, Getting Better

Hello everyone,

Finishing my fourth week of shingles, I still ingest ibuprofen for the pain. The internal pain creates sleepless nights but slumber fills most of the dark hours. The rash looking like a red scare and will dissipate with time. The exterior skin often feels pin pricks and itchiness. Overall, a numbness starts on my stomach and progresses to the back around the left side. Lifting anything over ten pounds causes the pain level to spike.

This week brought the first time since acquiring shingles, I worked on new books. I finished editing my collection of short stories and looking for a beta reader. If interested, email me at This book still requires professional editing, but the stories are ready to read.

Two months ago, the fourth book in the Flying People Series passed initial writing. Now comes the countless edits by me to refine the story and fix the language. This process takes twice as long as writing the first version. Bear with me for the newest of my fantasies.

Finally, I want to thank my wife for picking up the slack for the past month while shingles all but stopped me participation in household chores. She is the help mate God promised me.

The Genuine Daughter is $.99 until July 15, 2021.
