I've refrained from talking about what I have been writing for a while now. In July, I posted about my beginning the last book in the Miscorrection trilogy. At the time, I planned to allow the public to watch as I wrote portions of the story. After the first week, I stopped.
Part of this was because my writing became sporadic. And the other because I had a few idiots view the Google Doc as I wrote it. They spammed the chat session with vulgar stuff while I typed. So, rather than do that, I left what I wrote in the beginning up for others to read. It's not final, but it should give you a taste of what to expect.
It's about time I reveal the name of the final book. Following the same format as Miscorrection: Preludes and Miscorrection: Dimensions, this one is entitled Miscorrection: Times.
The title was the easy part. But the cover is another issue. That's why I'm looking for some help from the inhabitants of planet earth. Below are thumbnails for each cover. The images used in them are at a low-resolution, but you should get the idea. Take a look at each, and vote for which one you like the best. If you want, you can comment on why you like the one you chose.
To help with your decision, here are the covers for the other two books:
And now, here are the current drafts of the covers. Which one do you prefer? Vote in the poll below!

This is just a quick note regarding self-publishing eBooks on Google Play. Today, I was paid for my books sales during August.
You read that correctly!
In most cases, it takes 2-4 months to get paid. Along with that, you have to meet a minimum threshold of $10 in royalties to receive the payment. This was my first full month on Google Play and I made under $10, but they still paid me the first business day after the end of the month.
This to me, is a huge positive of publishing with Google Play!
