Marvellous Music

1. Press play. 2. Press repeat. Follow instruction # 2.

I haven't done a post about music for a while. Most of you know I adore epic music scores. I always have. Yesterday I came across this piece (a shout out to KACSKA16 - the uploader who continually uploads amazing pieces). I haven't pressed the repeat button so many times in my life, I think.

I might have annoyed my neighbours yesterday.

In any case, this piece of music took me away and literally left me breathless. I do hope it's for sale on iTunes, because there is no way in hell I'm letting this one slide through my fingers. I loved it so much, I had to share.

Music is awesome.

It, for example, helped me immensely with the stress of trying to update my eBook files online. So far, the only successful update was on So if you're looking to buy an eBook version of The Dying God & Other Stories, head there. That is the Unillustrated Edition, but it's also less expensive. A fair trade, I think.

If you're looking for the Illustrated version of the eBook, I only have a Kindle Edition of that (so far), and there's an issue with Kindle Direct at the moment. I'm unable to access my book. It should hopefully be solved today sometime. Follow me on Twitter (@SMCarriere) or Facebook for at-the-minute news of when it's available.

The same has to be said for my (it's the same as the Kindle Edition, in case you were wondering) edition. It's just not loading. Or at least, it didn't yesterday. I'm trying again today. Hopefully everything will be sorted out.

As I struggled so much with the updating of my eBooks yesterday, I didn't even get any editing done. I am quickly falling behind. Grrr....

Well, I should get on with it! Much to do, as always. Here's today's Forgotten English:

(Just as an aside, a Neil Gaiman doppelganger just arrived ... he's a courier, but I could swear that he looks like a younger version of Neil Gaiman. Right down to the crazy hair. Anyway...)

I dread the day I have to figure out all the formatting stuff. You are doing great! I love the music, too - exciting stuff! Thanks for sharing.

I'm glad you liked the music. I adore this kind of music. It really lets my imagination fly!

The formatting is daunting to look at, at first, but if you take it one step at a time, it's actually very easy to do.

It's the techy stuff I have serious issues with!
