What to do?

Even though it has good reviews I am batteling between removing The Sylph's Tale, the first book of On Wings Of Immortals - series, or just adding the revised-complete version.

Why? The Sylph's Tale was published incomplete. The publicist says they submitted the complete manuscript, but Amazon and D2D say they released the file received but are willing to give those who bought it a free revised-complete version upon publication.

I am extremely grateful to those who like it. Missing chapters are:

My Cross - Chapter III
HAYA - Chapter IV
My Brethren - Chapter VIII
Grant Me Death - Chapter IIX
Dragons of Eternity - X

What say you?

Poem: Buckle


Let us not buckle 
Under greed, vulgarity and pomposity
Oh God help us not believe 
You are on the side of rioters
Abusers, greed and self-servers
Help us stand strong 
And return our country
To the respect and glory 
That led our forefathers 
To leave homeland and ancestry
Cross the oceans
To build a nation 
Not for pomp and powdered classes
But for freedom and equality
Jesus, Moses, Mohamed and Buddha
Rise amongst our people
Give us strength and purpose
For the time has come
To end immorality, greed and vanity
Ruling and toppling our nation
From the top of Lady Liberty’s flame
Into mire and stench.

New poem: Greener


If your heart quivers
For someone other
Than whom your with
Tell it that the other side
Is only greener
Until the fence is climbed
Or the gate is broken
And then
The true colors
Of disappointed longing
Or new flavors embraced
Turn into longings
One being greener than the other
In its commitment
For life is more than colors
And the heart beats
Not just in red
But in the passing of time
When what you want now
Becomes what you
Want no more
The self loses it’s soul
Hunger becomes a vice
And in looking
You lose who you are
And become the prey
Or predator
Of whims and dreams
Of what could have been 
Unfulfilled with longings 
That become the new
Lost and not found.

We are back!

On Monday, we returned from our 15 days Panama Canal cruise and ten days of travel from Florida to Cincinnati, visiting my husband's siblings and their families. It was a grand vacation, but I long to return to Europe in particular to Lalin, Spain; that has a story I will tell soon.

During the cruise, while at sea, John edited and made significant contributions and suggestions on VIRGINS, book three of the series. He is not into holding back critiques to make me feel good and why I trust him. Also, an avid and very picky reader, so when he said, "you need to write a series about the men,"  I was surprised and more when he added, "I enjoyed reading it" and "look forward to book four."  That's ROLO, which I will give him in two weeks after he has knee surgery, and work gets done in our home that was scheduled for after we got back from our travels.

Also, reviews from other authors, the information I am reading, and online classes, have ushered in ideas on plot and story that I am excited to implement and write. Soooo, busy, busy busy!
