First Story: The Carp Pond is up and here's the plan

SO, the first paragraph could be better i feel but the first short story The Carp Pond by TWG Fraser is up, at least on  Amazon so far, others will follow:

So, i would be lovely if you  could buy it and review it.

It seems that short stories are quite popular. So to get some reviews could help push it up  the ratings in  its given genre and then maybe i could get a sale from an unknown person!

Which would of course be incredible.

Good bad reviews: 'i hated it but if you  like Enid Blyton then this is for you' is great compared to bad good reviews: 'This is my brother, its great.' So please, if you  can't write a good review (which i completely understand could be difficult), do please write a good bad one. 20 reviews, good or bad, does imply sales of many more - thus popularity!

The Plan
The plan is this: try to put up  12 stories over the next 12 months, perhaps finishing and coinciding  with my 50th birthday in February 2014.

I am not sure if i have 12 stories. Here's what i think i have:

  1. Jan 2013: The Carp Pond
  2. Feb: Bored
  3. Mar: Imperial Ends
  4. April: The Birth of Barley Boy
  5. May: The Prussian Story
  6. June: Market Forces
  7. July: hmmm  not sure
  8. August: Unwritten - L. O. S. T.
  9. September: Unwritten - How I stopped the English invasion of Scotland
  10. October: The Tears of Winter (not sure this is such a good title tough it is a fairy tale)
  11. November: The Felix Tale I
  12. December: The Felix Tale II
And in  fact this all comes together as the Felix Tales.

The DayDream
As a professional day dreamer here's the plan. Kickstarter the printed version - softback, hardback, woodcuts, readings etc... next year.

Well, obviously, reviews would be great. If anyway would like to help editing  these  things that would be great.

Anyway, thanks and good luck.
