A Fly-by Update

30 Apr

I’ve been quiet online for a couple weeks now.  Just too much to do to devote any time to blogs; I’m afraid this will be a short one as well, but I think it’s important that I take a moment to thank all of you who purchased my latest novel, “The Magician’s Shadow.”

In truth I have no idea how many have sold.  I doubt I will ever know because I don’t follow up on stuff like that.  It’s enough for me to know I have written a novel and that people have enjoyed it.  So thank you!

Someone suggested recently that I write my memoirs (thanks a lot, Zulma!).  Actually my wife Bev has suggested it for quite some time as well.  I fought it for awhile; discounted it as silly for another while; now I’m going to do it. Who knows, I might find some healing in the exercise.

The working title of that memoir:  “And the Blind Shall See.”

Anyway, just a quick howdy and thank you!  Have a brilliant week!

        Hubby had been very busy Bill. I’ve been resting a bit more. And yes that’s why the garden blog has been quite. No photos. 😊 But my main blog I’ve done a couple of posts. You too Bill. EnJOY🤗

    Bill, the title goes way back to your very beginning. Excellent choice!

    Glad to hear your writing your memoirs. It will be a cherished, historical item to leave the generations who come after you.

    I’m a little late in getting here, Big Bro, but I’m so glad to be here. 🙂 It always lights me up to come over and see what you’re up to.
    Write those memoirs! It’s cathartic, and incredibly fun to spin your own tale into a tale. Plus, the rest of us will get to read it.
    I love what you said about your novel + sales. That’s resonating with me, particularly today. I was in a meeting for other women in business and they kept telling me, you don’t “sell” enough. “You need to be selling meditation more.” My coach said that, too. And I get it: if you’re in business, you need to do sales.
    But dang it, I just can’t. I value so much what I’m doing. Selling doesn’t matter. Changing the world and being a “light” does. I’m in this for the long haul and I believe in putting things out there for the people and if they support your work, in turn, then you know you’ve done your job.
    So I’m sending you a virtual pat on the back, Big Bro. I’m your biggest fan in emulating your example. 🙂

      Hi Lil Sis! I just had this conversation at the market yesterday about selling my books. I’m not sure the guy fully understood my meaning. The joy is in the writing for me….selling is something someone else does. 🙂 I’m told there are people out there who like that sort of thing….it’s just not me.

      Hugs coming your way, my kindred spirit!

    Wow! writing a memoir requires a lot of introspection. I wish you success, Bill.

    • Billybuc May 2, 2019 at 4:19 pm #

      Thank you Ruchira! I’ll do my best and hopefully be satisfied with it.

  11. suziehq May 2, 2019 at 10:03 pm #

    Bravo on the decision to write what will be an epic story of your life Bill. Hope the markets are going well and life on the farm being productive as ever. The versatility you pack into your life is inspiring so keep it coming my friend! have a great weekend xxxx

    • Billybuc May 3, 2019 at 1:38 pm #

      Thank you Irish! I don’t know about epic, but it might be fun and rewarding. Be that as it may, I appreciate you stopping by and giving me support. Hugs from across the Pond, my friend.

  12. Sally Gulbrandsen May 3, 2019 at 8:15 am #

    That is a brave but excellent idea. I look forward to reading it. I have sometimes thought about doing the same but I am not sure that I can face going back in time yet. I look forward to reading your memoir.

    • Billybuc May 3, 2019 at 1:31 pm #

      Thank you Sally! i appreciate your support and will make sure to keep you all updated on my progress.

  13. Lawrence Hebb May 4, 2019 at 4:20 am #

    Just like you, this is a quick visit. Writing the Memoir would be pretty neat.

    • Billybuc May 4, 2019 at 2:02 pm #

      Thank you Lawrence. I appreciate the encouragement.

  14. Dalo 2013 May 6, 2019 at 10:06 am #

    Good to see you back, and wish you great success with your current endeavor. I think it must be a very rewarding experience.

    • Billybuc May 6, 2019 at 1:37 pm #

      Thank you Dalo! I hope you are correct.

  15. Andrea Stephenson May 6, 2019 at 10:47 am #

    Based on your blog, I think your memoirs would be a really interesting read Bill, another project for you!

    • Billybuc May 6, 2019 at 1:36 pm #

      Thank you Andrea! I have the feeling this one will be a difficult write.
