New T.K. Wrathbone Notebooks and How I Made Them.

 

I do love a good notebook, I should, I use them to write my stories in. But recently, I just couldn’t find any appropriate for what I need. 

 

So, I did the next best thing.

 

I made them!

 

Yep, that’s right, I made them.

 

In the above picture you’ll see the notebooks I recently bought from my local Kmart. I thought they were appropriate since I write about such things as you see on the covers. I bought about 40 of the silver star ones, ans 20 of the campus subject ones.

 

And what did it cost me?

 

$1 each.

 

Yep, $1 per notebook.

 

The three little ones came in a pack of three for $3.

 

So below, here’s what I did.

 

Since I didn’t want the subject inserts, and I needed a certain number of pages in each book, I unfurled the rings slightly, pulled off the cover, pulled out the paper and inserts, and then put back in the right number of pages I required. I then curled up the coil and voila! New, appropriate notebooks.

 

You can see the inserts below, they’ll be great for others things.

 

What I did next, was with the star notebooks. Using the same technique of unfurling the coils, I removed both the cover and back and threw out the really bad back covers. All scratched and worn, etc. I then used a front cover on the back, filled it with paper, and added a second cover on the front. That way, it’s stars on both sides.

 

The books were $1 as the store was trying to sell them off, and many were badly scratched on the back, but by unfurling multiples at a time, I could use two good covers at once.

 

And now, below, I have two sets of awesome notebooks that should get me through until Bones 12 is written. No more notebooks for T.K.!

They’re pretty much the same as every year, so here goes…

 

– 1.1 – The paperback version of last year’s stories is done and will be released in March 2019

 

– 2.1 – Get three stories written up, typed up, edited, and out along with an anthology, and do the e-covers.

– 2.2 – Release all four in October for Halloween.

– 2.3 – Get the paperback version done ready for release next year.

 

– 3 – Overhaul the website and give it a front page.

 

Well, that’s it, what are your plans for 2019?
