Trust

All I have seen teaches me to trust the Creator for all I have not seen.    Ralph Waldo Emerson

Ralph Waldo Emerson (May 25, 1803 – April 27, 1882) was an American essayist, lecturer, and poet, who led the Transcendentalist movement of the mid-19th century. He was seen as a champion of individualism and a prescient critic of the countervailing pressures of society, and he disseminated his thoughts through dozens of published essays and more than 1,500 public lectures across the United States.

Self-Help

AFI FEST 2007 Presented By Audi: Portrait Sessions - Day 2

 

Any book is a self-help guide if you can take something from it.   Kevin Smith

Kevin Patrick Smith (born August 2, 1970) is an American screenwriter, actor, film producer, speaker and director, as well as a popular comic book writer, author, comedian/raconteur, and podcaster.  He came to prominence with the low-budget comedy Clerks (1994), which he wrote, directed, co-produced, and acted in as the character Silent Bob. Smith’s first several films were mostly set in his home state of New Jersey, and while not strictly sequential, they frequently feature crossover plot elements, character references, and a shared canon described by fans as the “View Askewniverse“, named after his production company View Askew Productions, which he co-founded with Scott Mosier.

Disconnect

It is completed, and at Smashwords.com.

Now maybe I can get back to a little bit of occasional original content on Saturdays.

A little background, this book started out a little while after my book Scouts Out.   Scouts Out was getting a little boring so I tried a little short story of this renegade who did not want to be a  part of the Fleet, and the story grew from there into Disconnect.  So this book took almost as long as Scouts Out to finish (about twenty years).  Was there years I did not do anything with it?  Of course, but it is finished, and out there for the world to either criticize, love or most likely just ignore.

Scouts Out will be getting a new cover soon and I will be turning it into a podcast for your listening pleasure, I will keep you posted on that.     If you like the cover send a nice note to my artist, Graham Kennedy at GKillus@aol.com or Graham Kennedy Illustration @ Facebook.com

(Sorry for no Movie Speech today, just wanted to get the announcement out there.)
