A Slight Momentary Affliction

UPDATE: Thanks to an energetic friend, the link in my "links" sections now leads to a .pdf on GoogleDocs, rather than the blog, since there have been several requests for such. However, if you really like reading it on a computer screen, here's a link to the blog. Another energetic friend is in the process of finding several typos. These will be fixed in due course.

If you were following this blog about 15 months ago, you may recall my announcement that I had finished writing a novel, the working title of which is A Slight Momentary Affliction. Even when I started it, I knew the chances of it being published in the conventional manner were quite slim, and I reconciled myself to the probability that hard copy would gather dust in a closet somewhere, and my heirs would dispose of it upon my demise.

The advent of free hosted blog sites has provided a more attractive alternative. If you're interested, click on the link (eyes right, and a little down) called My Novel.

Started reading this immediately and loved the first chapter...BUT, I agree with your son's comment...put it in PDF form! Then I can download it to my Kindle and read it so much easier!

Thanks for sharing this...but I will buy the book if you do end up publishing it!!

Your update would be great but when I clicked on the link and signed in it said that the document was not available! Perhaps a "glitch" in the system?

I believe I have now fixed the problem. Please let me know if I haven't! (I have no way to test.)
