Russians, Democrats, and Fools

Fox or Sheep?
Hunter or hunted?
My thoughts are here.

The elite class must have a divided country to control the masses.  Even in the animal kingdom predators break the herd apart, separating the more vulnerable to face the razor-sharp teeth of their oppressors.

We the herd, are often fooled by the fox, as it sometimes wears the cloak of the sheep. Infiltrating the herd looking for the easy targets, the fox will mark them for the pack.

Who might be the easy targets used to divide us as a country?

How about 300-year-old practices by people who have been dead for centuries?

Who else?

Yes, women.  Easy targets as the elite will use or invent any emotional issue and make it salient to their cause.

Who else, or what else?

Yes, ‘immigration’ as we are now told that people from third world countries who openly violate our laws are better than US citizens.  Somehow we aggrieved them, and now we must pay up… PFFFT!

What else?

Ah yes the polar bears who are actually thriving and doing very well, but according to faux reports are all but extinct.  The poor coke drinking white fuzzy bears are all dying off.  Maybe we should name them all Toto, so when the wicked witch of climate change comes for them, we will all act emotionally.

And you thought that commercial was just about Coke I bet.  No, we must make an emotional connection and then we do something like anthropomorphizing those cute little Coca-Cola drinking creatures so you will care for them.

Are there any thinking voters left out there?

For years I have wondered and openly asked, why someone would spend 16 million dollars of their own money for a job that pays $174K a year.

Have you ever asked yourself that?

I wouldn’t blame you if you didn’t, there are many reasons.  Few pay attention to the elite class, as they are too wrapped up raising their family, working and let’s face it, “living.”

The elite class is much like the wizard. They do their dirty work under the cloak of darkness, and behind curtains riddled with other predators seeking the best way to control the masses while acquiring power and wealth.

I have no doubt that our president had such affiliations, and now many of them are behind bars in an attempt to ‘save the country.’

The problems are that they are not trying to save the country.  They ‘the swamp creatures’ are protecting their system of corruption and greed at our expense.

Those associates of Trump are but pawns in the grand scheme of things, and Mueller knows it.

Once elected to some position of power, either locally at the state level, or certainly, on the national level, they are a ‘commodity’ for big business.

Our way of life is ruled by the giant corporations through the politicians and lastly through the IRS.

There is no upper, middle, or lower class; there are just slaves.  Now your job as a slave might be more or less desirable than others, but make no mistake, the tax code was written to keep the population as indentured servants, of the ‘elite.’

Donald Trump is more or less a slave to the “Elite.”

Who are they?  Who are the real elites?

Who spends billions of dollars to change the fabric of the world, for their own personal aggrandizement?

I could write an entire book, maybe two books on this subject, but I like fiction, not harsh reality.  How do we fix this?  How do we keep from becoming Venezuela or some other third world country?

For years I thought term limits was the answer, but I was wrong. The answer is to enact laws which would prevent politicians from serving on boards of companies or working as a lobbyist when they leave the office.

Our political class the “Fox” go out of their way to keep us divided and focused on issues which are not issues.  Any sane person would see them as the ‘shiny’ object in some magician’s act, but few of us are watching them, knowing them as the creepy people that they are.

The destroy Trump class are there because Trump is not playing the role of Fox or Lion or what have you.   I get that he is polarizing and I get that he is caustic to some people.  He is also very dangerous to the ‘elite’ who also control the media.

  • Change the laws on how politicians can make money after they retire.
  • Change the laws on lobbyists.
  • Invoke term limits for all politicians.
  • Pay them well enough so when they leave office, they can retire…

When becoming a politician or pawn for the ‘uber elite’ is no longer a pathway or a stepping stone to the ‘elite class,’ you will find that politicians will be more genuine, and less divisive where the American people are concerned.

We must take back our country from the elite. We must stand up for ourselves, or we will follow in the footsteps of Venezuela with our own sons and daughter via the military controlling us through force.

Sitting back and believing the lies perpetuated by the media is no longer an option.

I for one am totally disgusted with the media and the Democrats and yes some Republicans.  It is clear beyond the shadow of a doubt that the Mika’s of the world accept as ‘fact,’ that they tell us, the slaves what to believe.  That is a sad commentary on journalism today.

Stand up now, or be prepared to ‘caravan’ and illegally invade some other country… but who?

Read my novel Presidential Assassins.  Very entertaining written much like a Dan Brown novel.

Are you a Victim?

Are we looking for something to claim victim hood status over?

What the hell is going on with our world today? Me2 Me2, someone once said I was pretty! Dammit, if you are ugly and someone calls you pretty, just face him or her face to face and tell him or her not to offend you. FFS! Really, is this what we have come to today?
I find it shocking that we are turning into a world full of pussies, and I don’t mean that in a good way.
“This man forced me into sex. He put his thing in my mouth and made me have oral sex with him.” This is from another me2 person going after a politician in Virginia.

I get that there might be overarching forms of bullying going on, but few men, smart men, would put themselves forcibly into a mouth full of sharp teeth! I guess a stupid man might, But he would only do it once.

Black Face

Until a few days ago, I did not know what that term was. I am not a spring chicken. Yes, I grew up in a time of minstrel shows and such. The last actor I saw portraying a black person was Neil Diamond in Jazz Singer. His friend Franklin Ajay (Bubba) gets him to perform in a black club. Everything is fine until one of the patrons spots his white palms and then all hell breaks loose!

Why, we are left to guess but the fight that ensues lands the band “The Four Brothers” in jail where Laurence Oliver playing Yussel’s father, ask him a question, which is probably the best line in the whole movie… “Isn’t it tough enough being a Jew?”

If you were to ask a black activist (Al Sharpton) about this, they (he) would most certainly spin this as more white hatred of the black people.

I do not deny racism, I am calling into question who the racist is.

In the 1980 movie, when one of the patrons sees his white palms, and calls him out, the writer gives him the line. “That ain’t no brother, that’s a white boy!” Over this observation, the place erupts into violence, even though the performance up to that time was a success.

• Was the writer a racist?
• Were the patrons in that time racist to the point of destroying the club to harm the entertainer?
• Was this scene indicative of the time?
• What period was this supposed to happen in, wait the 80’s…

I have been in Black Clubs in the ’80s as a white person. My company transferred me to Houston to take over as a manager of a department. My black employees invited me for drinks after work one day. They did not tell me it was a black club. I was new to Houston and certainly had no idea that the Palomino was a black club. Folks, I saw none of this. We had a great time, I had many dancing partners that evening, and I cemented many long-term friendships that have lasted through the ages.

Another of my employees at a different company brought me to a gay bar, after work. Same response. At the end of the day, I went home without a date, as I was not looking for one. There was already someone in my life.

Was I a victim?

Some could proffer the argument that they set me up. They knew things that I did not and put me into an uncomfortable situation for their amusement. Much to their chagrin, I was not nervous. I can handle myself, even if things had gotten out of hand. They did not, however; get out of hand as in both clubs people were nice and accepting of me.

They knew I wasn’t black but they did not know if I were straight or gay. Can you not go into a club like this as a “person,” and just enjoy the company of other people, without identifying as straight, white, or black?

In many of my novels, I talk about labels, and how my characters abhor them. I won’t go into details here. We are all the same when it comes to race. We are the “human race.” Our sexual identity is also not that distinct from one another, as we all start our life as a girl. Men have nipples, look it up!
You would be shocked if I told you how offended some men can be when I point out that little fact. Own who you are. Celebrate diversity, and don’t you use it as a way to divide us.
In Tipping Point, I make the argument that we should all strive to look at each other as human beings and not look for that which divides us. This is a common theme in a few of my novels.
Last evening at a writers meeting we got into a conversation about art. I mentioned that one of my instructors was incredibly opinionated. She was very good as an artist. Excellence at what we do tends to breed a certain hubris that I take umbrage with. I don’t care who you are or what you have done, you are no better than I am and I am no better than you are.

This instructor had a certain mindset including which paints you do not use. There are brushes, and so on that, you had best not bring to her class.
Early on, we were asked what got us into painting in the first place.
Without hesitation, I spoke the truth. Bob Ross.
OMG, you would have thought I had just pissed in their Wheaties.
Some of her requirements for the class are that you mix your own colors and, this is right.

Never use paint straight from the tube…blah blah…

This person was rather high strung and had little tolerance for not doing things “her way.”

Why Bob? Why do I still to this day, hold him in high esteem?
In thirty minutes using basic colors and skills, he manages to create beautiful paintings that set the stage for most of us to escape into. We imagine our bare feet on the lush grass, or perhaps swimming in the lake, as we feel the fresh water on our bodies. Just maybe we think of ourselves laying in that field among the happy trees, looking at the “happy clouds” or other things, which could be happy accidents.
Why Bob? Why not Bob. What a gentle soul and kind spirited man. What a great role model for us to all aspire to. The barbs were too much for me, so I searched high and low for “flesh colored” paint. I also found a two-inch brush, to top it off, ordered a shirt with Bob Ross on the front. The bully of the art world had met her match!
When you are painting portraits as she was teaching us to do, there is indeed, only one way to get it right and flesh colored paint is not it. That is why I had to search to find it. I wanted to make a point, graciously.

As I sat there with my two-inch brush and a dab of flesh colored paint on my pallet, we were instantly in a standoff. She knew that I was taking her to task. “Your opinion is just that, an opinion!”

“Don’t mock those that you don’t agree with.”

Had Bob not made it appear so easy, I might never have purchased the stuff to give it a go. My portraits sell all over the world, and I have her to thank for that, but in truth,…Bob is who inspired me.
• Why did I tell this story of my art career?
• Does it fit into being a victim?
• How does it fit?

Last night when I was telling this story, one of my comrades took me to task. It would seem that referencing flesh colored paint was racist. “WTF? Are you kidding me? It says flesh on the tube, is Windsor Newton now a racist?” What is going on for this person to make such a ludicrous assertion?

Are you looking for ways to be a victim?

I don’t have a racist bone in my body. I dislike ignorance and those that act on it. My comrade had no clue what I was talking about. Had I been less sure of myself, I might have taken offense to that assertion, or worse, questioned my own stance on racism.
They assumed that flesh was “white flesh,” but in truth, it is a “base” with which you can add yellow ochre, burnt umber or pick your color, and make it any kind of “flesh” you choose.

Titanium white, yellow ochre, and alizarin crimson are also the beginnings of the base for flesh.

Do you believe everyone should be pure of heart and thought? Just possibly nobody should talk, or speak, write, text or communicate in any way so we don’t offend someone. Wait, if I don’t say hello when seeing you; is that communicating with you nonverbally. Is that not a way of telling you that you are so insignificant to me that I am not going to waste my breath to say hello? No, it says that I am so afraid of offending you, that by my acknowledging you that, you might find something offensive. FFS is that where we are.

I walked past a man leaving the bank the other day who gave me an eye roll, as we passed. What did that mean? Should I be offended? Was I not worth the time to at least say hello to? Did he not like white people? He was black, that must be it, he is racist, and that is why he rolled his eyes and did not say hello to me. I should write a column for the New York Times about how all black men hate white people because this one person rolled his eyes at me, instead of saying hello. I am a victim! His eye roll was offensive to me! How dare he not acknowledge me as his equal!

“Is this where we are?”

He was holding his phone and had an earbud in his ear. Is it possible he was talking with someone on his phone or listening to voicemail, and he eye rolled at what he was hearing?

I leave you with this thought….

Look for things we have in common instead of things that divide us. Start with the fact that we are the entire human race. The color of our skin, or sexual preference, is not something to divide us. Start out with respect for your fellow human traveler on this road of life, and the rest will be much easier.

“I just about hate to say this, and yes I am stealing the line from Pollyanna. Look for the good, and you will find it, look for the bad, and you will surely find that too.”
I could choose to ignore the phone, and the earbud, and think that person was anti-white, and use it to build a precept that all black men hate white people or….I could give him the benefit of the doubt.

Great minds discuss ideas. Those focused on petty things; discuss people and ways to be offended.

Rise above the fray, and lead by example.

BTW, my art instructor and I are the best of friends and have been so since I stood my ground and forced her to examine her own life. Bob, Kincaid, and others serve a purpose and they are no less relevant than Renoir, Picasso, or De Vince. While they would argue the fact that I put their names in the same sentence, neigh the same paper as Renoir; I would argue that Renoir never inspired me to go and purchase paints.
Much Love -TW

Who are you?

Unless you know that person in the mirror the winds of life are carrying you.

I should be editing Tipping Point but, I am taking a break for a bit.  There are reasons, which I will share. As writers, we need to step away from it.  There are those who will toss a completed work into a drawer for a month or a year…. No, I am not one of those.

When I am not active on my blog, I am either working the day job, writing, editing or marketing.  I have told you repeatedly if you follow me here and you are a writer I will make it worth your time.

Here is the message for tonight that if you take to heart, you will be much better off not only in your writing or other creative endeavors but as a person.

“Wow TW, that seems kind of heavy.  Are you smoking something?  You in Colorado? Got extra?”

Tonight I want to talk about you.

Sitting through a critique session, I am so tickled with some folks who are giving a writer their best shot at an opinion.

“I did not like this.  That was cool. I like that.”

If you were a writer, and that is the feedback you received, would it be helpful?

No, not so much.  Why?

That is not a rhetorical question, it is a real question. Why?

As creatives, we are our own class of people in the first place.  I like creative people as most of them are intellectuals.  That means they think.  They have more going on under the hood. They are not usually the “Hold my beer and watch this.” Kind of person.

“I would challenge you to take this a step further.  Take your wife or husband or BFF and go spend a day at the art museum.  Most of them have benches where you can sit and admire the artwork.  Many art students will go sit and sketch the artwork as an exercise.”

“I don’t want you to sketch it; I want you to analyze it.”

“You don’t have to be an art major to appreciate art.”

Walk the floor and find something that speaks to you negatively or positively. When you see that something, stop, sit and study it.  “(SSS) stop, sit, and study.”

This is what you are looking for.  “Why!”

You are worthless to a writer if you cannot articulate your feelings to them.  If you are not in touch with you who are, then your opinion is meaningless to not only the writer or author, but it is not much value to you either.  “Joe six-pack, this applies to you too.  Why do I like this beer and not that one?”

I write about enlightenment, even in my naughty books, to set the stage for my readers to begin to know themselves. When you get into the habit of asking yourself, why you liked something or did not like it soon that will be a habit, which will serve you well.  That person who is looking at you from the mirror will be better able to deal with life if he or she knows themselves.

“I preached this to a young man over thirty years ago.  This person is now worth more than a million dollars and is happy.  He is happy because he knows who he is, and what he wants out of life and he knows why.”

“He was already wealthy blah blah…” No, he was in prison doing five to ten for armed robbery.

I worked in advertising for years.  When I first started, I was one that would FF through the commercials.  I soon found myself watching them with more fervor than the program.  Why did this one work, or that one didn’t?

There is this annoying commercial on currently that is for GMC trucks.  They have this tailgate, which unfolds and has a step for geriatric cowboys I guess.  The thing starts out with the truck on the hill and from miles around people are carrying tailgates from their competitors. That part of the commercial is forgettable.  The genius of the ad is the earworm.  “Na na na na.. hay hay goodbye..”

A commercial must be memorable.  Not only should you know the polar bears are drinking a soda, but you must remember that it is Coke.

When you can analyze a commercial and tell me why it works, you might have value as someone who can read a book, and offer constructive criticism worth listening to.

“I liked it, is worthless.”  Tell me why and be specific!

We know that adverbs are the path to hell.  I read them in books regularly.  Your average reader does not have any idea that eliminating them makes the text more readable.

When agents look at your books as you query them, they can tell if they can sell you to an editor.

Once you understand why you like or dislike something, you not only gain value as a writer but also as a person. You now have a little more depth than the veneer on your desk.  Blunt, you say?  Yes, it is.  Following me, you know that I am unfiltered and honest.

Tipping Point in its current iteration will not be up there much longer.  The novella will soon be replaced with an 86K word book that you will most certainly love.  It is free on Kindle Unlimited.  Read it before and then the after.  I think you will be shocked.

Much Love–TW

 

A couple of updates here.  The previous version of Tipping point is gone.  If you really want to see it let me know and I might find a way to get it to you.

The second update is about marketing.  I was watching a Trump rally the other night to see what the kerfluffle is about.  When a heckler did something to stop the president from speaking the crowd broke out in “na na na na na na hey hey goodbye.”

Think about that GM!  While you are laying off thousands of your employees your marketing firm is working for you.

The Joy of Writing

Major revision of Tipping Point coming soon.

Hello and welcome to the lair of TW.  Yes, it is a lair…Why do you ask?

From this point on the planet, I can love whom I love.  I don’t hate but I kill with exemption from the laws of the land.  From my little den, I can blow up worlds, or create them.  Reprimanding bad boys or girls is a pastime with which I take great delight in doing.

The target of chastisement is as naughty or as nice as I choose to be at that moment.

Writers live in our own little world and that is a good thing.  When you walk into my dungeon, you can see the clean shiny plasticized beds with chains and cuffs ready to restrain you.  When you see the whips crops and other things on the walls your bottom has a tinge of pain that travels through your body to that sexual organ that sits atop your shoulders.  The brain is the most powerful sexual organ of them all, and most are clueless.  They must be taught.

As writers, we can take you there.  On your kindle or nook, you escape the doldrums of your nine-to-five world.  You and others, join me.  The journeys are as real as you want them to be. While it is just you and me lying in your bed, you search the crevasses of my mind looking for some love that you are missing.  Maybe it is an adventure you seek.  There on those pages, we take flight to lands unknown to humanity.

Have you been naughty?  We can take care of that too.  Through Tiffany in that reform school, we can modify your behavior, in the safety of your own world. Password protecting your E-reader is a great idea if you don’t want intruders in our world.

Maybe, just maybe you are tired of the politics of this realm and are ready to leave it. Don leaves this world while on the ISS orbiting it.  Can you imagine what he must have been thinking as the Starduster sucked the ISS into one of its smaller cargo bays?

If that were you would anal probing cross your mind?  Would you be like “oh hell no, where is the gun?”

Maybe you would be, I can handle this…

Don learns much about himself and humanity in Saga of the Starduster, which is still my best seller.

I have over 32 novels selling around the globe.  Some more than others.  If you are following me on this blog, you know Tipping Point is going through a re-write.

Here is the skinny on that novel.

One Friday afternoon I am flying back from the west coast.  The sun is at our tail, and there on the ground are many wind turbines churning away.

The idea of “free” energy hit me. That evening with a glass of merlot, Tipping Point was born and published complete with cover art.

I gave it away on Kindle Unlimited to entertain you who follow me.

Joining yet another writers group, they bludgeoned me over those ten thousand words.  One even chastised me telling me “publish nothing without having it…” you get the picture.

With my novels selling around the globe I took what she said about half seriously.  This work was never meant to be literary genius.  I wrote it in three hours for Pete Sakes.  I wanted to start the conversation about climate change, and what man is doing to the earth with these changes.  That is why I gave it away.

One thing that sprang forth that got my attention is that many fell in love with Sam.

“I love Sam too.”

Sam deserves better than ten thousand words.

“I took that to heart.”

On my computer is a novel sitting at 86K words that is the new version of Tipping Point.

Instead of three hours of Merlot writing, I have about three hundred hours in it to date.  The good news is that if you already bought or read for free the 10 K word version, this will be free to you.  I will leave it on Kindle unlimited too.  This is a boon for Jeff Bezos and not me but here is the deal I did not realize until speaking with an agent.

If you publish on Amazon, you keep the rights to your work.  Agents are trolling Amazon looking for new authors.

The plan is to give this away for next to nothing, allowing Jeff to come up with more money for his divorce.

You the readers can either purchase it for $3 or read for free on Kindle Unlimited.  If an agent finds this, it won’t last long.  My beta readers love it…

Now you can climb aboard Air Force One, with Sam and the President.   Take a world tour on the taxpayer’s dime while keeping up with their awkward love story. You too can meet the Queen and experience pomp and circumstance.  As you also fall in love with the characters, see if you can follow with her scientific logic on her diagnosis.

Since this is a “give away price,” I would love feedback.

Here is the deal… What is published is before I went cray-cray on it.  It is a fast read with errors and fun things that are no longer in this version.  The new version has a dusting of fifty shades in it.

Wait, how can I worry about the world slowing down, and now I am spanking someone???

Yes my pets, yes indeed, my trusty hand is once again looking for a bottom to warm up, through the literary process.  Will it be yours?  Have you been naughty?

Follow along so you will know when your carriage to my lair is here.

Much Love -TW

Open letter to Amazon

Who is your target audience?

 

Hello Amazon,

If you indeed have found this, thanks so much for taking the time to read my blog.

Yes, this is feedback.

As a writer the more information you can provide us, the better we are equipped to target our audience. I love the new reporting tool.

It would be interesting if not paramount to me to know which countries are purchasing which books.

I see that many novels sold are in the UK, but I have no idea, which titles.

As a novelist of many different genres, I need to know who my audience is, so I know whom to target with what ads.

For the rest of you writers out there, marketing is the largest part of the battle of making money from your books.  I know you thought it was just telling a good story with as few grammatical errors as possible, but that is not the case.

From the cover art to the marketing, it is all-important.  There are many steps or hoops as I call them, which you must hop through if you intend to be a novelist that only writes and does not have to work a day job.

In future blogs, I intend to assist other writers in this area as we are all in the same boat.  While a few authors think that this is some sort of grand competition, I assure you it is not.  I spend much of my time assisting other authors and do my very best to get them published if that is their goal.

Hints tips and kinks would be most helpful and I will publish them here if you care to share.

Amazon, thanks for the new reporting feature.

-Best TW

 

 

Judge Me Not

 

As a writer, I do not think that I could write a plot, which is as licentious as we see playing out before our eyes.  One would need to be willfully blind or complicit, to agree with the amount of malevolence we are witnessing in DC.

Since Trump’s election, we have seen the Deep State come to life, to obstruct in any way that they can, his ability to do the job of President.  We have seen his own DOJ fight against him from the day he became a candidate, to current day.

The left is losing their grip on your pocketbooks, so they have deployed a hard-core bunch of propagandist, to smear everything that this administration is trying to do.

The latest attack on Kavanagh is sadistic, barbaric and just flat out insane.

When you watch the news, you cannot overlook the most hideous bunch of yapping heads, spewing out garbage to those that hate trump.  They feed on the hate and anger, and those in the mainstream media know just how to give them what they need.

Playing to the emotions of the half that voted Democratic, their job is to paint the Republicans as bad, evil people who will eat your children and screw your daughters if you give them half the chance.

The facts do not bear out this BS but, damn the facts, they just need to continue to sow the seeds of doubt and stir up the liberal base to put their evil hides back in power.

  • Is that what you want?
  • Do you want to pay more taxes?
  • Do you want the jobs to go back overseas?
  • Do you want to go back to building foreign countries up, while sucking the lifeblood out of this one?
  • Do you not see what you are voting for, is another Venezuela?
  • How blind must you be, to not see through the lies of the media?
  • Even the most jaded person out there must see this Hail Mary attempt to slow down the judge’s confirmation, by any means possible as crap.
  • Folks, if they can destroy a man by a mere allegation, they can do it to anyone, including you.

 

Tomorrow we might see some more emotional nonsense, including some crying but in the end, I would watch her checkbook.  Soros is spending Millions to defeat Kavanagh.  Why is Soros interfering with the confirmation of a supreme court Justice?

The world is upside down right now, and the left is pushing that, as the new normal.  It is not!

Firstly, a person is innocent until proven guilty.  When you besmirch a man who has already been through six (6) FBI investigations which gave him the ultimate clearance up to and including the nuclear launch codes, it is now insanity or desperation.  I suspect that any of these recent allegations, released days before his confirmation hearing are bogus, and a trick to delay his hearing until the Democrats retake the house after the mid-terms.

In my mind, they are weasels and should be ashamed of themselves. We the American people are the victims, as we have to foot the bill for this tomfoolery.  We have suffered through two years of a Russian Collusion probe, which has proven nothing, as there is nothing to prove.

The goal is to cheat the American people from the desired outcome of having a conservative in the Supreme Court.  They cannot do it through legal, moral channels so they are cheating.

Here is the real question that I would like for you all to consider.

 

If we believe that Judges are to use the US Constitution as the basis for their opinions on legal matters, what difference does their party affiliation make? This is my rub with the current system.  Frequently, the Supreme Court is divided on party lines.  How is that? Does each side use a different version of the constitution on which to base his or her opinions?

If they are all using the same Constitution, they should all come up with the same conclusion. It would be like ten people going out of the same building, looking up at a clear blue sky, and then reporting on what they saw. Our current bench of Judiciaries could not even all agree that it was a clear blue sky.

How many of them would enter into their opinion that “due to global warming the sky was not as blue as it could have been.  Perhaps they might write the sky was more cerulean blue than phalo blue.

One might even write that the sky was devoid of clouds, rather than saying it was blue.

What we see on the news before us makes me fear what tomorrow will bring.  If the Democrats retake the house, it will be by sheer prevarications. I am sure that if a politician tells you something that you do not want to hear, that they might be more honest than those that tell you everything that you do want to hear.

The left’s tactic is to buy votes by taking money from the middle class. They then use the different judges to get their ways, as they cannot win in a true public court.  The rest of the world is screwed up by greedy people like this, and now they want to tear apart the greatest country on earth, for their own personal gains or….they have someone else pulling their strings.

My novel Presidential Assassins is selling well.  I might have to write a sequel to it.  The news today is rife with fodder for a sequel.  I could include rape chains, witnessed by adults that never spoke of it for 35 years.  Now we have a presidential want to be, a young Perry Mason finds some desperate woman to create a work of fiction, which would stir the emotions of many real victims, of the Me 2 movement.

We cannot win on the facts, so we win in the court of public opinion or emotions.

The Judge is certainly innocent of the claims, but the Democrats need to buy time.  They need to buy time and make the Republicans appear as bad as they possibly can.

For the left to turn the laws of this country around by calling an innocent man a profligate, to further their agenda is absurd.  For the mainstream media to aid and abed the deep state, erodes our constitution, and shows the world just how stupid or greedy that some Americans are.

I have noticed that several of the liberal media, allow their guest to espouse the necessary propaganda while they sit back and just ask the right questions, to make the point. They do this because polls show that they are losing credibility.  “You think?”

I feel for the judge’s family having to go through this.

There are many things that you can fix with Duct Tape; stupidity is not one of them.

Check out my novels.  Let me know what you think of Presidential Assassins.

Presidential Assassins

As a writer what are your goals?

 

During the last few months, I wrote Presidential Assassins.  The editing of it and so forth took time, but it is quite good.

The quite good is a quote from some of my beta readers and some initial feedback.

One of my readers told me that my book reads a lot like some movie that is being advertised currently.  I have not seen the leads for it, but it is about a shadow government and assassins.

My novels are selling well, and people are giving me good feedback thus far. Someone was telling me that if you write a book where the hero is a kick-ass woman nobody will buy it. FFS!  Did they happen to see the movie Wonder Woman?

I don’t like misogynist at all.  Women can indeed be badass assassins, just as good as Tom Cruise.

This novel is aching for another volume.  Waiting to see if enough readers demand it. I hope that they do.  I already have some ideas of where I would take it.

If you take the time to read it, let me know what you think.

Before I get an agent, you can acquire my novels very inexpensively. Why? An agent has a team of people who they assign your book to.  Some editors fix the participles and antecedents and split infinitives.   They look for grammar punctuation and of course inconsistencies in the story.

Now they do other things as well, they look for parts of your story that need punching up or deleting.

I liken this part of the process to what my art instructor did to me on several occasions.

I would paint this exquisite painting that I loved and then she would come by and tear it apart.  One time she took a rag full of turpenoid, (odorless turpentine) and wiped the canvass clean.  Well, it was a gray mess. I was gobsmacked!  I was happy with mediocrity, and she knew I could do better. Painfully she was right, I could, and did.

Agent’s, if they take you on as a client can push you to the next level.  Now I know that my books even though they are selling around the world with the right agent, they could be a lot better.

Query letters and begging for representation is not my thing.  Query letters take a minimum of four hours to produce.  In four hours I can write at least one chapter, and maybe two.

My time is worth something to me.  I need an ROI and “if you never hear from us consider it a pass.” Does not get it!

These books will make some agent a ton of money and right now that money is going to Amazon and Smashwords who push them out to the big e-tailers like Barns and Nobles.

Of course, Smashwords and Amazon don’t do anything for their 30 odd percent. By anything they don’t advertise them, they don’t edit them or create the cover art.  They don’t even read them and tell you what might need to be fixed.  They host them on a site, and the rest is up to you.

I recently plugged myself into to a writers guild with hopes of making connections and getting others to critic my work. Stay tuned in here, as I will be blogging about it.

If you follow me, you know that I am about paying it forward.  If I can assist any of you in your endeavors through what I am learning, you can count on me doing so.

Thanks again for the follows, retweets and indeed if you are one of my customers, you rock!

People are buying these books all over the globe, and it is heartwarming!  I appreciate it, I genuinely do.
