As much as I wanted to put things in that context, I always had to tell myself, don't do it. Don't sound ignorant to your audience.

I can't stop laughing because that's so real.

I tried to at least keep it on some type of articulate level to not make me seem uneducated and ignorant. I'm sure we've all seen our fair share on the forum over the years - probably social media as well.

Lmao right?

I feel like if I wrote a book, it’d be like when Peter wrote erotic novels..

The wonderful world of creative minds.

You know, writing the book and staying focused to see it through to the end wasn't necessarily the hard part. The hard part was and still is conveying the story in an articulate way to where people can understand and follow along while being creative to keep their attention. As a career problem solver, this is a whole new world of problems to solve. Problems of which I have only very basic and simple tools to get the job done. My thinking is more geared towards math, science and details.

That's my problem. I'm an engineer, not a people person and I feel that needs to change, immediately. My wife says I'm very sociable, maybe perception isn't reality here...

I used to think I was one of those engineers who was still cool with everyone, but...

...it's a balance for us.

A clear out of the blue surprise popped up in the mail yesterday.

It was my copyright. Didn't even expect it.

I'm not sure who's all interested, but the edits are progressing phenomenally. I'm setting a tentative deadline of this summer for publication. It's getting to be a more of a smooth read, and it's coming along. I got very little negative feedback, some neutral feedback, and some good/great feedback. I'm telling you, if you ride or just love to enjoy life, this book is for you.

Very small piece from my book:

The waiter gave a warm smile and walked away. The conversation at the table was centered around becoming more acquainted with the two new women joining the group. Continuing to drink and laugh while waiting for their food, Lines leaned over to his new woman.

He whispered to her, "do you want to dance?"

After the shot and a glass of champagne, she was feeling light and free like a silk scarf blowing on a windy Spring day. She leaned over in an attempt to make it look like she was whispering in his ear.

She said to him, “I’d love to” while licking on the edge of his ear.

The couple got up, and they walked over to a small area next to an unmanned piano. Their arms reached for one another, and they began to hold each other in dance position. As the music played in the background, Lines had a firm grip on her torso. It gave her the feeling of protection and comfort. The two of them began to move in unison to the music together. The smell of her perfume made Lines want to pick her up, put her on the piano, and push himself deep inside of her. However, he knew they were in a public place, and he had to maintain his composure. Simultaneously, the emotions she experienced made her feel light on her feet from his presence and his scent. She began to become more and more aroused, and she could feel her vagina getting wet. As the song came to an end, they began to separate. Those two received many smiles and soft applauds from onlookers in the restaurant.

Lines whispered in her ear, “tell the table I’m going to the bathroom.”

Getting ready to head to final proofing. Pre-orders are already on deck. Finishing up on the last of the content editing.

With 80,000 words, there's bound to be a mistake. It'll get taken care of with final proofing.

"...he was on his way through the bedroom door..."

Great catch, and that's why it's going off for proofing. 80,000 is a lot to look at.

I got it. I actually have some pre-orders rolling in, and when I saw the name, I didn't recognize it.

Thanks for the support, and after you read it, please let me know what you think - good or bad. Everyone who has read the entire MS thinks it's a great story/read. I'm not exaggerating.

I'll gladly autograph your copy. My tentative publish date is July 1st, so you should have it around the first week in July.

Any question, feel free to PM or Email me.

Still working hard at it up until publication. The final touches are going into effect.

Six Gears is now being optimized on Google.
