New face

Today I’ve put a new face on my blog by adding a new header and using a new theme. I’ve also added images of my ebooks on the right side of the page, which will link to free samples of my ebooks, including my children’s coloring ebooks which contain both color and black and white pictures,  when a visitor clicks on an image of an ebook.

The blog is flexible and ‘should’ display better on mobile devices.

“Joint Effort” ebook in the works.

I’ve been working on a new ebook, “Joint Effort”, for a while now and thought I’d post a picture and a blurb about it.

Joint Effort is about a group of high-school kids who go on to become one of the largest producers of pot in British Columbia. From the group forming at high school to how some of the money was laundered and the pot bunkers built, it is one story of the BC Bud industry. All fiction of course.

Dead Dog Divorce

The death of all those dogs at Whistler brought back so many painful memories of when Liz Summerfield, my now ex-wife, lied to the South Burnaby Veterinary Clinic and had them kill my dog Punzhu.

Killing an animal to speed up a divorce, or for any reason, is never justified.

I suppose reliving all my anguish over the cruel death of my young dog brought forth the thought of changing the cover of my ebook Final Decree.

Friends of mine who have read my fictional ebook, “Final Decree”, had previously suggested I should have included something about the death of my dog in the title.

I had discussed with my editor a title of “Dead Dog Divorce”, but she felt that was not an attractive title to her and so Final Decree was chosen and the ebook published.

Final Decree, a dead dog divorce, is a fictional account about the divorce between my former wife, Liz Summerfield, and myself. It is based in parts upon real events of our divorce, including her lying to the South Burnaby Veterinary Clinic and having them kill my dog Punzhu.

I’ve decided to change the cover and include the words “A Dead Dog Divorce”, which you may view here. Link opens in a new window or tab.

Trying simple animation for Bubble Trouble cover

I’ve managed to get the cover of Bubble Trouble to reproduce a simple animation, but have had no success in adding animation to MSWord for ebooks published on Smashwords.

Mark Coker of Smashwords advises me that animation would be messed up by their meatgrinder even if I were able to get MSWord to accept animation.

This is the animated cover I’ve uploaded to Smashwords, which at Smashwords you have to click on to animate. You may have to click on this image for animation sometimes.

Katjie supports Liz Summerfield killing animals

Earlier this year I established a memorial on PETA for Punzhu, my adopted pet who was killed by my wife during our divorce. I visited the PETA site today and found the following message had been posted.
***
Katjie
Thu, Aug 26, 2010
After reading the story about “Punzhu”, whom had bitten a mailperson “fifteen” years ago, I was shocked to hear you have “just” decided to donate $25.
It’s not very difficult as to why the post office/person never had to filed a complaint of the incident. “Liz Summerfield” had taken “full” responsibility for her pet actions, this is called a responsible pet owner!
Can you image how Liz, felt when she had taken her wonderful special pet/friend to be put down? Will let me tell you that it’s not an easy thing to do for any reasons! I’ve put down a few pets, (old age) and to let them go walk over the rainbow bridge is the friggin hardest thing in life is to let my best friends go.
BTW, thanks for telling me her first and surnames. My hats off to you “Liz Summerfield” for stepping up and being a responsible pet owner! I hope others will do the same!!!!
Sincerely
Barkfish katjie

Barkfish katjie seems to share the same mental health issues as “Francis“; they both support killing innocent animals. Katjie also has some misunderstandings:

One, Punzhu was my dog, not Liz’s. I adopted him from the pound, looked after him, took him for walks and to the vet, paid all the bills, etc. etc.

Liz took him from the house the day she filed for divorce, wouldn’t let me see him or tell me where he was. Punzhu was not her “wonderful special pet/friend” as you put it.

I believe Liz viewed my dog as simply a pawn in our divorce. If anyone wants to read about some of the things that happened during my divorce you can read my fiction novel, based in parts upon my divorce, “Final Decree” here.

Two, I haven’t “just” decided to support animal groups fifteen years after my ex-wife killed my dog, for I have donated to the BCSPCA for many years before and after my ex killed Punzhu. I noticed you, katjie, didn’t contribute any money to my memorial to support PETA.

Three, Liz lied to the vets at South Burnaby Veterinary Hospital when she said the post office had ordered her to have my dog put down because Punzhu had bitten a postman.

Liz lied, katjie, and I don’t know how you or anyone can possibly support killing an animal based upon a lie. The post office never ordered Liz or anyone to have my dog Punzhu put down. Liz simply lied.

Four, katjie speaks of how Liz may have felt taking my dog to the vet and having Punzhu killed. Can you imagine how hard it would be for a son to tell his father that his father’s dog had been killed by his wife?

Can you imagine how hard is was for me to hear my son tell me that horror story? I’ve taken pets to vets to be put down because of old age and I know how that feels, believe me I know, and it doesn’t compare to the feelings I had as I heard my son tell me his mom killed my dog.

Taking a pet to be put down doesn’t come close to the pain of losing a pet through a purposeful act of your wife lying to vet in order to kill an innocent animal, possibly because the divorce was not going well in her favor at the time Punzhu was killed.

The pain of hearing my son struggle to tell me that my wife killed my dog exceeded any pain I have ever felt when I had to put one of my pets down because of old age.

If you want to read more about my divorce and the death of my dog Punzhu, read my fictional novel “Final Decree” which is based in part upon my divorce, and you may agree with the reviewer who wrote “A truly enlightening story of what “can” happen when the thief is your spouse…”

A truly enlightening story. Review.

The first review of my fiction novel “Final Decree” was posted on Smashwords today and the reviewer had this to say; “A truly enlightening story”. Thanks for the review, and I’m glad you enjoyed my first ebook. You can read the whole review here.

My new novel “Final Decree”, and “4-letter words” sample

It took some time, a couple hours really, to upload my new ebook “Final Decree” to Smashwords when it was only #14 in the queue. I checked the output after going through their meatgrinder process and found a couple of errors, one of which was my own stupidity in that the pictures for “I came…” card in the Appendix didn’t copy properly when I moved the MSWord file to the OpenOffice document format for uploading to Smashwords.

I had uploaded my new novel, my first novel on Smashwords, originally in the MSWord format, but had horrendous problems with the linking within the PDF document after the conversion process by Smashwords. I’d had this problem before using MSWord (When will I learn not to use MSWord???) on my 4-letter words puzzle ebook on Smashwords, which you may read about on my blog post here.

I made the image corrections to my novel and uploaded it again to Smashwords. Now I am waiting for the book to be processed by their meatgrinder into various ebook formats.

My book the “Final Decree” is about a divorce and the problems a woman, Elspith Winters, has during her Examination for Discovery. Elspith is driven by inner forces to divorce her husband, who is baffled by her determination. Her passion leads from love to an odyssey of despair, ruin, and alienation as she emotionally crumbles during her Examination for Discovery.

If you enjoy stories with a touch of realism to them, a bit of humour, stories that are a cautionary tale, then you may enjoy reading my new novel. It is a work of fiction and and any resemblance to real persons, living or dead, is purely coincidental even though Final Decree is based upon actual events.

Free samples of both Final Decree and 4-letter words are available at all major online retailers including Barnes & Noble, Apple, Amazon, Smashwords, Kobo/Chapters Indigo, Sony, select libraries, Flipkart in India, and other fine retailers.
