As the title mentions I am sorry for saying I am sorry so many times. But, you are all good sports and understand my situations. Thank you for following me and leading my way to you in hopes of a good communication through blogging my memoir and other blogs that I have. Big sigh, maybe I bite off more than I can chew. Oh pooh. This is part of my struggle letting it go giving it to God. Which I do and I know we just did a retreat on that. Why? probably as I said I struggle with this. smiles and prayers here… But maybe just maybe and I feel this He wanted me to do the blogging for various reasons we have spoke about.
Okay getting to my apology and why… I am not going to be able to meet the book deadline I promised. I hate doing that. I believe in keeping promises. Maybe I need not give dates and say I will do this…. I believe I did write this in another post earlier. But needed to follow up with my social media friends and the like. Fyi it will be smaller than I first intended I feel this is best for all concerned. It will be what is called a “chapbook”.
“A chapbook is an early type of popular literature printed in early modern Europe. Produced cheaply, chapbooks were commonly small, paper-covered booklets, usually printed on a single sheet folded into books of 8, 12, 16 and 24 pages. They were often illustrated with crude woodcuts, which sometimes bore no relation to the text. When illustrations were included in chapbooks, they were considered popular prints.
The tradition of chapbooks arose in the 16th century, as soon as printed books became affordable, and rose to its height during the 17th and 18th centuries. Many different kinds of ephemera and popular or folk literature were published as chapbooks, such as almanacs, children’s literature, folk tales, nursery rhymes, pamphlets,poetry, and political and religious tracts ”
I will have a simple chapbook. It will be an e-book chapbook. I just love the concept of the chapbook and believe this will make a comeback sometime I hope soon. It was charming craft. But the e-book is going to be great simple and inspirational. How do you feel and think about that?
My book I am intending to give away deadline has to be changed and at this point cannot give a definite deadline. But as you all know I am going to do it. And more to come after that.
Good news I accepted a bloggers recognition award. I need to prepare for that. I do not know what that all entails? Wow, someone thought my blog was that good to try out for this. Now to do the work involved to prepare. Wish me luck all you wonderful people. This is wonderful for me and you to go forward and try to do what is right to get this award. Prayers and blessings your way always.
