25 Thoughts on “Changes

    I love that you write long stories and I love that you keep perfecting your craft. The best stories are those that are crafted layer by layer- rewriting and rewriting and rewriting again.

      Thank you Mel, still waiting to hear what you think of Grapes of Rome when you finish the first read πŸ˜›

        I love the characters in the story. And I read a part last night that just devastated me. If you can make me feel what the character feels and utterly destroy me, that’s a good thing.

          It never occurred to me that a part of the book would devastate someone. For some reason I know exactly what part you are talking about. It was a horrible time, a horrible tragedy that continues even to this day.

  2. I caught that and interpreted it the same way. Definitely hope that we are wrong.

    • Remmy2013 on August 28, 2015 at 9:50 am said:

      Right or wrong doesn’t really matter. What does matter is what devastated Mel, an experienced Beta reader/editor, do you have any idea what could have done that?

  3. O geez, does that mean I have more work to do?
    Only joking, I loved it the first time so now it sounds even better.

    Remmy, when will there be additional chapters to your YA Novels? I check every day to see if you have updated them. They are really great stories but then so are the rest of your stories. What is the situation on the “Baryon Saga”? You posted two chapters back in 2013 but nothing since.
    An avid fan, James Morey

      As Paul says I witter away. I write the same way. So the first thing we do when I decide to publish (based on how many views and comments a story gets) If they say the book is great, like they did Grapes of Rome, then I have to do is get rid of the wittering, and believe me, that is an easy 60-80 thousand words on each book. Now we have a publishable book… but not quite. The book needs to be edited, multiple times, formatted properly and divided into chapters. Sometimes like with Grapes of Rome the chapters remain intact, and other times like with Changes, they are stripped and redone.

      TTT originally had over 33 chapters. It was condensed into thirteen. But it was so confusing people told me they got lost in it. So after this last edit I did, there are 19 chapters and an Epilogue. Good things are that Giovanni appears in the beginning of the book instead of the end – so yes the story changes. We learn more about him this way. He was always a main character, but never got the limelight until the end. Now by the time we get to the ceiling crime scene, we know much more about him. The book is easier to follow now, and the timeline jumps are more apparent so people don’t get lost… I hope

      On this, Pauly is the A2Z Editor, Steven Fritchie was the beta editor, Mel Leach was the final editor. Will it resemble TTT? No it won’t, it really is an entirely new book, but their will be similarities, but remember I own the copyrights to both works.

      Now the problem is, I write from my dreams. I had an awesome dream this afternoon that I can’t publish, but when I dream about characters in the book(s) I wake up and write it immediately. Once I am finished with the mess I have now, then I will go back to other books I have started.

  5. Does alpha mean I am supposed to be good at it?
    Better change me to Zeta editor….:P

  6. Maybe you should consider Pauly10 the A2Z editor.

    I am really glad that you are redoing the Travis Theory. It was a really good story and then I got so lost in it that I just quit reading. I am looking forward to both of your books being published so that I can buy them.

    Glad to hear that you are going to finish Aaron’s Motorcycle, because it is an excellent story.

    PS. Don’t get famous, most authors get famous after they are deceased. I had rather you be rich than famous.

    Read it now, but they’ll want to read it again… later, too.

  8. I say “Support the Arts”; buy the books!

  9. I liked your first cover with the roads. I also like this cover and think that it is better as it certainly grabs your attention.

    I like the cover a lot, and personally I think it was good that the lack of response from the artist made you change as it looks much better πŸ™‚
    I still think the text needs a bit of work though, so hopefully people will give their opinions.

  11. Steven Fritchie on January 29, 2016 at 4:23 pm said:

    After looking at the color change from the grey to the orange, I’ve decided that this cover does look better in that it makes it seem that it would stand out more when potential buyers see it.

  12. The Book’s cover is usually what first grab my attention to check the story / blurb – I really loved yours… I agree that the orange stands out and grabs attention – Loved it, Remmy πŸ™‚

  13. I like the dramatic nature of the new cover. It has a fresh feel with an over bearing disaster about to happen.

  14. I just received my autographed copy a couple of days ago and will post my review when I get it read. I read part of it under the original title and thoroughly enjoyed that. I do most of my reading on the internet and through eReaders. When I received my copy of “Changes” the first thing that I thought is “Wow this is impressive”. When reading electronically you don’t realize the volume of the book, but when you hold it in your hand you realize just how much work has gone into the project.

    I hope Remmy is proud of his results because I was surely impressed. I know his writing is good as I just finished “Grapes of Rome” about a week ago and it was an excellent read. I hope that Remmy makes enough from these to live a little more comfortably so that he can continue to provide us this enjoyment.
