The Corom Lama -- Edits & Publishing

C**** meaning: P***...as opposed to Dalai, meaning: Ocean. Life was never kind to the man who was to become the Corom Lama, but then, he was not nice to it. Doing an edit, re-edit-- this was originally intended to be a full novel, but plans fell thru on that front, so... here were some stray notes and considerations (I hope to have it completed this fall or by the end of this year):

~He is a sequel character, late of CoI, but O.M. never knew him, or of him==
In this, it is too many voices speaking thru the 2nd Person narrators, and the over-use of different cues & symbols denoting who is speaking. >>
{The recounting of Lama's assassin past was foreshadowing for Lama being alone w/ BoD again--> and BoM is left bereft and frightened ==>
  Make narrative in Present Tense unless a past event is being recalled, otherwise the story is all in the here & now>>>
>Keep BoD dialect the same << -_-_-_>
the 1st GA counters with passages from the Bible used as spells so he can kind of force his way back in--->>
He was one of the disciple's close followers, but had not completely gone thru with the transformation~~>
These are all accusatory:::Every section, every part the narrator is speaking to the Lama (You, You, You) and accusing—>
{{He's done the whole Drugs-thing, and has moved on to going thru peoples garbage,>,
[[The Corom Lama is one of the fmr. Begging Cultists]>
>>>This guy feels that his life has been hijacked, and sidetracked, by another somehow...


 If I can make any sense of that... I will.




[O.K., well, I've managed to navigate the legal hurdles to get this published and it is up and at 'em on KOBO, which is Rakuten's (the Japanese Amazon), Kindle-type platform. I felt it better to go international, Kobo is/was Canadian, on advice of my counsel]
