ANOTHER ONE DONE

Yesterday I finished HER CHIEF DOCTOR. This finishes the saga that started with HER WRITING WARDEN. Work at my publishing company is halted until Jan 4th when they go back to work. I still have 3 stories I am working on. I will probably try to finish MUSIC TO HIS EARS or ESCAPING EARTH next. Having company over for dinner to finish out this year. We are making seafood alfredo with a large tossed salad and my rainbow punch. Looking forward to 2021 being a better year than 2020. But, we survived 2020 so far so everyone stay safe tonight. Got to go start our dinner.

BUSY TIME OF YEAR

WOW!!! I sent my manuscript to my contact at my Publishing Company to get the cover done and the manuscript printed. I am also wrapping up my 100 Day Book class through Write Practice. I have a final seminar to attend at 2 today and then I get to see what’s next. I have found a Beta Reader, I guess I can call her that. She’s a fellow writer from my class who has given me encouragement and fantastic feedback. So, Stephanie, thank you so much. She is currently reading (as I finish them,) Chapters from the Warden Saga, Part II entitled HER CHIEF DOCTOR. I have 23 completed books she can read if she feels up to it. Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year in 2021 to all.

FINISHED BOOK

Well, I finished my novel, THE MAN ON THE BUS and it is now available for purchase on Amazon or directly from me. My webmistress is working on getting it onto my site so you will see it there. I am currently taking another course through THE WRITE PRACTICE to bone up my skills in putting my stories down on paper. They say you are never too old to learn just a little slower. Enjoy the fall(ing) leaves and keep reading. Marcia

Thank you all

Well, somehow I lost last weeks blog. Wish I knew how I managed to do it. Anyhow I was Thanking all my fellow classmates and cartel members for their help during the past ten weeks and with my launch. I am working on the next Chapter of THE MAN ON THE BUS and giving out free copies of it. Still keeping touch with my cartel. I have a fan and sold copies of six of my books last week. Total excitement. I hope she posts her feelings on my site. She read HER SNOWMAN and loved it.

WEEK 8 – I HAVE LAUNCHED!

Well, my novella/story THE MAN ON THE BUS is available on Amazon. Here is the link to Amazon and the story. https://www.amazon.com/dp/B08993YB3R/ref=sr_1_18?dchild=1&keywords=marcia+a+oster&qid=1590674232&s=books&sr=1-18

I am excited to have this available. If there is anyone out there who needs help with their launch, let me know. I want to thank everyone who gave me feedback and helped me with my launch.

I am curious as to what my readers prefered genre to read is. Drop me a note or leave a comment. I have over twenty novels available on Amazon or directly from me. On my website you will find a brief outline of each story as well as the opportunity to Meet the Characters in each story. In these times of staying at home, you might want to curl up with a good book or sit outside under your favorite shade tree with a glass of ice cold lemonade or iced tea and step into one of my stories.

Week 7: Catch-up Time

Although as a writer, I feel I never get ahead…barely break even and easily fall behind. My internet is up but slow, I would guess due to the amount of people home. Never has my phone rang so much from people wanting to sell me something…which if I needed it, I would call them. Hey, that’s their job…mine is getting caught up with my classwork and finishing my story. If I could get Part 6 done, I could get it edited, critiqued and ready to add to my book. Getting good and great helpful feedback. Thank you all.

WEEK 6 – NO INTERNET

Well, this has been an interesting week. Starting on Monday my internet decided to go in and out all day. Tuesday it got more frequent with the crashes. This got worse as each day started. By Saturday, it became impossible to work on line at my class work at all. Finally, switched to Hughes Net at Dishnet’s recommendation, but they couldn’t come out until Tuesday. So, now I have internet. Sunday, we added another kitten to our family. Lot’s of entertainment and Bobby is 7 weeks old today.

BOBBY 6 weeks

WEEK 5 LESSON 5

Well, I have the cover designed for THE MAN ON THE BUS and I’m getting the Parts/Chapters formatted for Kindle on Amazon with the rest of my books. So far, I am up to Part 6 and on the down side of this story, I hope. I want to keep working and writing with the previous critiques formost in my mind. Getting a lot of great feedback. Thanks to all MARCIA

THE MAN ON THE BUS

New York Bound or not

Well, let me tell you a little about my newest story entitled: THE MAN ON THE BUS.

Melina is taking a bus home from visiting her grandmother in Toronto, Canada.  She’s sitting in a window seat, partially asleep.  Someone sits beside her, and she opens her eyes to see an Indigenous male sitting there.  She closes her eyes wondering why with all the empty seats on the bus, he had to sit beside her.  He settles in and leans back and closes his eyes. 

Fleeing Into the Woods

After he is bothered by another passenger on the bus, they exchange names and talk briefly.  Henri is a Shaman and she soon gathers slightly psychic.  His humorous reply to one of the police officers who have boarded the bus looking for a murdering couple, gets them removed for further questioning and left behind at the station.

When there is a problem with another stopped bus, Henri abruptly says they should leave the station where they are awaiting questioning.  He brings her out the back door.  She follows him into the woods where they hear gunfire and then an explosion. Then they see smoke.  They end up running for their lives.  Getting a rental car, she brings him to her home.  When he goes to return the rental vehicle, Henri disappears; Melina is left at her home feeling abandoned.  Henri did leave a little part of himself with her.
