Newest Release Coming Soon!

If you fell in love with the worst of the bad boys, what would you do?

Hello from the lair of TWScott

In case you don’t follow my tweets, I wanted to update you on my progress.

I rented this cabin in the woods in the Smoky Mountains.  I could say a lot about the roads in Tennessee, but that would take us away from the exciting news I want to share with you.

My latest novel is finished.  107K words give or take of everything you have come to expect in a TWScott Novel.

When a young girl from Iowa leaves the farm for college in Florida, her life is transformed. The need for cash drives her to look at the unthinkable as a way to survive. Her lifelong friend had already discovered ways to make money working at Gentleman’s Clubs.   

Predators looking for young girls to work as escorts, troll those clubs and colleges. Lacy was an easy target.  Barely five foot tall, Blond hair and blue eyes with a ‘Monroe’ type body and smile, she became the focus of a recruiter.

Hired as arm candy, or love toy; Lacy soon learns the horrors of the industry, while catching the attention of one of the world’s wealthiest of bad boys.  A strange romance ensues as Lacy and her friends become part of the fabric of a modern-day brothel. An island entertainment facility for the worlds rich and famous was in the works and she was to become part of it.

With the world’s leading bad boy in love with Lacy, several people try to infiltrate her group to claim the reward on her lovers head.

How is that for a tease?

With the Epstein Island fiasco, the story wrote itself.  Instead of one island, I have two, as Peter; her ‘friend’ has competition who relies on sex trafficking to get his girls.

I don’t want to spoil the book, but I just love it when the evil person gets theirs, don’t you?

Schadenfreude

Captives of Pleasure Island

Taking a week to travel on vacation was not time lost as the story played out in my mind while driving.  I hoped that an Agent would see the tweets about it, and I would not have to Query it as that takes four hours for each agent.

The process is broken and needs repair.  The likes of Bezos or Corker will be the beneficiaries of many independent novels.

As you can see, I have created the cover art.  So far, I like this much better than my first attempt.  The name Schadenfreude is the name of a yacht that the rich boyfriend gives Lacy.  The name is a word that means deriving pleasure from the pain of others.  This man is twisted.

I spent a fair amount of time with my laptop on the screened-in porch, with the gentle breezes, generated by Dorian whispering through the trees.  When you think Dorian, you don’t think gentle anything, do you?

It is my sincere belief that you need to leave your office or as I jokingly call it my lair, to experience life.  We writers are a rare breed of human who lives inside our heads.  I could get into the science of theta waves and how we could use that science to break writers blocks, but suffice it to say, live your life.

All experiences are fodder.  If you write solely from what you see on TV or read, you are most probably borrowing from someone else.  Go, get out of your office, and move.  Walk through, the park, smell the roses.  Pick up a rose and get pricked by a thorn.  Bump your knee into something and experience the pain.  Life is full of bumps and bruises, but it is also about love and happiness.  Without the wicked things, how would you recognize the good?

Last chance agents!

Currently, I am in the final editing stage of this novel.  As I Jokingly say ‘Stephen Hawking’ is reading my book back to me one chapter at a time.  As I make my final edits I will be creating a Kindle-friendly upload that I can send to advance readers, i.e. you, or I can self-publish and market it myself.

If you want to make some money and discover the next prominent author, here is your chance.

I have well over 30 published novels with many of them selling nicely.  Just think how I would do with a professional editor and some marketing dollars.

Not afraid to go it alone.  I enjoy writing more than I do just about anything else.

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

Drone on about Drones

“Is privacy an inalienable right?”

With recent incursions at the Gatwick airport, you would think someone would have come up with a way to stop this from happening.

Years ago when drones were a roll-your-own project, I became very interested not in building one, although I could see that as a fun afternoon in the park.  I also see them for practical uses, much as the government might use them now to inspect something from a low altitude, like, the border.

While I have written about this in previous blogs, on this site, I think the time for action is now.  Truth told it is long past time.

I have invented the technology to stop these Drones dead in their tracks.  This technology could and should be deployed around all government buildings, and airports.  It should indeed be implemented at 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue.

Why am I not up there with Jeff Bezos, or Elon Musk, basking in the glow of success from a gated community, watching the little people from the top of my ivory tower, you might ask.

Currently, the laws protect the owners of the drones.

If your daughter or wife is sunbathing in your private backyard, and some neighbor takes it upon his or herself to spy on them with their drone, you cannot legally take action.  Even with the water hose, it is you, which will go to court with them being the litigant.

You can call the police, but they will just laugh at you.”

At the very least, you will be on the hook for a new drone for the perpetrator, and you could be in trouble with the FAA.

Could taking down some kids drone over your backyard get you on a no-fly list?

While I have invented the technology to shut them down, I have not created it for this purpose.  Using off the shelf components, these devices could be ready for deployment in no time.

Fighting the government is probably a multimillion-dollar task, as the law changes would have to go through layers of Congress before anything might even be looked at; much less acted upon.  These drones would need to be used in much more nefarious activities before Congress would take it up on their agenda for 2025, as they are too busy investigating Russia, Trump, Collusion, and Russia again, and of course not keeping our country safe from terrorists, as they do not want borders.

Now, here is an option I had not thought of until now.  What would the process look like for the UK or other US allies that are not so stuffy? Would they like this technology?  It is a defensive technology not offensive.

The idea being, put it into service somewhere, harden it or “acid test” it and then all of the sudden our congress who is so far behind the eight ball might say, why don’t we have that? They still have to argue about keeping the country safe.  Common sense solutions are all about, how much money is in this for me!  Once in Congress “my opinion here” they only care about their bank accounts.

What about you Australia, do you have Drone issues down under?

BB, can you use this technology in Israel?

If you are not investigating Trump, and Russia, and take your government seriously, can you get something like this through your “process?”

Can we afford a lawyer to make sure my invention does not get me locked into a small cell, with a man identifying as a woman, named Bubba?

Can an individual provide technology to our allies?  Another government question that some old act like the Logan Act, might be called on, to stop someone like myself from helping the people.

Who could cut through the red tape the fastest, and would appreciate a solution to the problem?

A quick Google search on this topic is “Oh Hell Yes, you need a lawyer as our congress is involved in that aspect too.”  Yes feckless is the word of the day!  The rub is “technology that could be used as a weapon.”  Ummm, a fingernail file can be weaponized.”

Trust me; it is only a matter of time before a drone is used for more than smuggling contraband across the border, or into Jails.

If you need a solution and can cut through the government BS, here I am.  Contact me, and I will happily work with you to build these devices and put them up for sale, not only to the government, or private businesses such as Apple, Google, GE, HP and others who don’t want prying eyes looking down on them but citizens.  Those with children, and backyard sanctuaries, for their use, who want some privacy should be able to defend their property.

Yes, this is an excellent opportunity for the Shark Tank folks.  Mark Cuban, are you still involved in this.  I have no idea, I do not watch TV. Any venture capitalists out there with pull-on Ave K?

That is the quickest solution.  Do not bother Congress. Crawl in bed with Apple, or GE. And it will be done tomorrow!

Why those two, I know they have folks on Ave K.  Even old Bill Gates does, or how about Raytheon.  This might be right up their alley. What lawmaker can be bought?  Wait, all of them.

My other option is to put the plans here on my blog, and just let people build their own, and run them without government approval.  When the pimple-faced brat comes to get his or her drone, you hand him one that the Dog found and used as a chew toy. Of course, you lie to the kid, and tell him you have no idea why it fell into your pool, and oh by the way, why was it over my backyard Dennis the Menace?

I would, of course, use the common disclaimer that this kit is for educational purposes only and any infraction of the laws is on you.

I am not advocating for civil disobedience. Oh, wait, maybe I am. When the laws work against the innocent, it is time to dawn a yellow vest, or god forbid a pink pussy hat! Why let the paid activist have all the fun?

The problem is not the technology, which is easy.  The problem is the government!

It is sad when the laws work against the victim, but currently, they do.  The victim is you, the one spied on by the snot nosed kid down the street.

While you liberal types are droning on about gun control, you should seriously be taking up this topic.  Why?  Your jobs are to defend the American People against all threats, domestic and foreign.  You currently are doing a terrible job, in case nobody has informed you.  Go ahead; take a poll. I will wait.

Type your response slowly so I can understand it….

Technology, as it evolves, needs to be monitored closely. Laws that protect the people need to be as dynamic as those technological changes.  We have seen the drone in just the last couple of years become much more pervasive and dangerous.

Our technology in our homes opens us up to cyber-attack.  Where is the consumer protection agency? 

Why do we learn about this stuff after bad things happen?  We need a department of technology, that works with the Consumer protection agency.  These folks need some metric to quantify that they are not just warming some chair for some six-figure salary.

While technology can be a good thing, it can also be a very bad thing in the wrong hands.  This is why we need to think seriously about weapons of mass destruction, in the hands of any dictator. We need to understand all that is about technology, which goes into our homes.  Internet-connected technology is a must, in this area.  The consumer protection agency like UL used to do, should be checking these devices before they are sold into the US.

See my story on Fairy lights.

Merry Christmas and Have a Happy and prosperous New Year.  We will know if you do, as we are watching and listening.  “Alexa, turn off the lights.”

Best

Scott
