Bookbinding

I cased in one book and didn’t succeed in making another pop-up book. Oddly enough, I don’t have a photo of my failed pop-up book, but I might be able to describe it. It has sliding doors that open into a panorama of faces of people. I demolished and used paper from a previous pop-up and it was worn out, tired, incapable of helping me. It didn’t hold a fold well and it didn’t slide well. Perhaps I should use fresh card stock instead of older stock. I will try again! I suspect.

FearCover.jpgI cased in the text block for Fear Zero. I worked fast and rough and the book came out fast and rough. However, it was a good solid B-, if you were to grade me on it. Maybe a C+. It’s soft cover, paperback size, with the title on the cover. This last part is a bit of a challenge as I have to align things on the computer, print it out, and hope for the best. Actually, I make three or four test prints before printing it out on book cloth.

Fiction

The same as last week, I am working on Book One of The Fear Trilogy titled Fear Itself. I believe I have made it stronger; not longer and not more ‘literary’ but stronger. The three plot lines are clearer. The plot lines are 1. Who is the Spy? 2. Who ordered the killings? and 3. Will the protagonist (McKenzie) find his wounded buddy (Ferrell)? 

I am also working on another trilogy tentatively called The Revenge Trilogy. I’m outlining it, doing some research, and plotting plots. The main plot is A woman (Monty) seeks revenge for the rape and murder of her wife (Julie). It takes Monty into the depths of society where murderers, rapists, and molesters abide.
