How to make your dream a reality

240px-circle-question_svg

Dreams. We all have them. Some are big, some are realistic while others require years to bring to fruition. During these uncertain times in the grip of the coronavirus pandemic maybe some of us have put our dreams on hold. Others, despite obstacles, persevere by taking small steps towards their eventual goal.

And that’s the key word. Small. To make your dream(s) come true you need to look at the big picture piecemeal. Nothing momentous happens overnight, and anyone who thinks it does is only setting themselves up for a major letdown.

Right now I’ve been putting my fiction on hold. Why? Because I’ve invested my resources into gaining new skills which can help me find a better job and to a lesser extent, improve my fiction.

And by relegating my fiction I’m not postponing it, I’m only investing in a prerequisite step that will eventually get me to where I want to go. Until fiction pays the bills for any writer, they must find sustenance in the dreaded “day job.”

So what small steps are you taking to make your dream(s) a reality. Please feel free to post your comments.

Until next time.

Beta-readers needed!

LAcover_3D

As many of you know, I’ve been working on my latest creation, the Third Book in my Leopard King Saga to be titled, THE LEOPARD VANGUARD.

Well I’m winding down the first wave of edits before the beta-reading stage begins. This is where I let the readers help out. So I’m looking for folks who love history or fantasy to lend me a hand.

If you’d like to beta-read for me, please contact me at tuvan.uner@yahoo.com. Once the book is formatted into ebook form, we can discuss your part and how your volunteering can help enrich the story before I take all beta-reading imput and incorporate it into the novel. Then my editor will wrap everything up with an edit and it’s on to be published.

I expect the beta-reading stage to commence in early 2019. But as is everything in life, this is subject to change.

I look forward to hearing from you!

Negotiations underway

cropped-blog-header-ver3-tuvan-uner.jpg

I know. I know. It’s been nearly a month since I last posted. Since then I’ve been slowly working on The Leopard Apocalypse. Still, the silence will be worth the wait.

I wanted to let everyone know that I’ve been speaking to a small publishing house in the UK about the possibility of a publishing deal.

Nothing has transpired yet, other then extensive e-mail communications which have been sporadic since last October, but, as most folks who have experience in the book business, I can tell you that great things seldom happen overnite.

I am happy to say that the gentleman who owns this press has shown interest in reading another one of my books. He read Guns And Dogs over the holidays and had positive comments for it.

Well, that’s all for now. I should have another update when there is something exciting to announce.

The Leopard Apocalypse update

LA-BANNER

With 2017 here, I thought I’d update everyone on my forthcoming novel, The Leopard Apocalypse.  I’ve been on a roll so far in 2017 writing the third novel in my flagship Leopard King Saga, and I’m hoping to complete the first draft by spring. In the meantime, I hope everyone is keeping their new year’s resolutions, and doing well.

More updates on The Leopard Apocalypse as they become available.
