Friday – AKA TGIF


Maybe it’s me but this week seemed to crawl by. I can’t put my finger on the reason, it just felt like a long week. Well, be that as it may, it is almost over for the work part. I was glad to get My GRL launched and am so grateful for all the support this week.

Now have to turn my attention to whipping Circumstances of Childhood into shape. I heard from my beta readers, and there are a few refinements that are needed. I can’t imagine publishing a book without giving it to folks to read. They always spot some anomaliesΒ that never occur to the writer. I am gratified no one said it sucked, so I have the courage to continue forward.

I hope your week was well spent and that you have a glorious weekend. This week’s JohnKu talks a little about how we need each other. I hope you enjoy it.

You by John W. HowellΒ Β© 2017

You are always there,

Supporting and cheering on. . .

I appreciate.


  1. Nice JohnKu! I love the meme…so sweet. Happy Friday!

    1. We need sweet now and then. Happy Friday and thanks for the support today. πŸ™‚

  2. Good post, John. I love the little panda. πŸ™‚ — Suzanne

    1. thanks, Suzanne. πŸ™‚

  3. I wish time would slow down for me once in a while!

    1. Don’t forget there will be a point when you will have an eternity to rest. πŸ˜€ Thanks, GP

      1. But I don’t want that time to get here too quickly! haha

      2. We all need to take our time. πŸ˜€

  4. Sounds like you earned a restful weekend. How did the big re-release go?

    1. Thriller is a tough category. For a re-release breaking into the top four figures is a big deal so I would say it is going better than I expected.

      1. Awesome! Congrats!

      2. πŸ™‚ Thanks, Teagan

      3. Awesome. Strange that thriller is so tough. With all the cop and military bases shows that have a thriller/suspense style, you’d think it’d be more open.

      4. There are so many books in that Genre that it takes a ton of sales to rise in the ranks.

      5. So it’s a saturation issue. Fantasy seems to have that too. Wonder if there are any genres that aren’t saturated.

  5. Indeed, have a much-deserved rest this weekend, John!

    1. Thanks, John. You as well.

  6. Wow – cutest panda ever! πŸ˜€ eMail coming your away about a Desert Island retreat this weekend without fail – been stupid busy for past couple of weeks… 😦

    1. Thanks, Jan. I’ll look for it. πŸ™‚ Happy weekend to you.

  7. Nice JohnKu. It says a lot about the spirit of the author community.
    Enjoy your weekend, John!

    1. It does, Mae Clair. Thank you. πŸ™‚

  8. That is a lovely Johnku! TGIF for sure. Have a fabulous Friday, John. Mega hugs.

    1. Fun Friday to you, Teagan. Hugs. πŸ™‚

  9. My hands up over here too John! Hope you have a lovely, relaxing weekend.

    1. Thank you, Lynn. Sounds like it will be. πŸ˜€
