Son Of CNN Editor Missing In Washington, D.C.

Son Of CNN Editor Missing In Washington, D.C.

When my mother and I first went to Frostburg I talked to this man about editing my manuscript. It didn't really pan out, but we parted on good terms. However, I still kept in touch with him. When I head about this it really struck home.
What's worse is they found the poor kid. He's dead. He was only 22 only two years younger than me. He was their parents only kid. My dad urges me not to make a big deal, but the thing this stuff happens to my mother and father alot as well. They work in the government after all, many times their former bosses or friends are killed overseas and god knows what else. I think it's finally starting to hit me how hard this can be. It's scary, but most of all I am sorry for poor Stephen and his family. I wish there was more I could say but I don't think there is. Most of all, I don't understand what the parents are going through. I never could.

Women and the way they dress

I just recently talked to this author named Luky Sherman (pronounced Lucky) who goes on to describe a harrowing exprience in how she was forced into marriage at age 15. The first thing I noticed was how beautiful she was and the photos that were taken of her. She seems more like a playboy model than an author. Most people would criticize that and I will admit that at first I was apprehensive. But now I applaud her decision because like Erin Brokovich she dresses in a way she sees fit. I often say how I wish we didn't judge people so much by their looks and I still hold on to that statement. Luky is very fortante to be so beautiful and have such a wondeful personality. I think it's cool of her to dress in her own way. She seems very sincere in her beauty and brains which makes her even more enviable. Perhaps that is why so many women critize others. Envy. I will admit that I am envious about how beautiful she is. But I also admit how amazing she is in how she was able to take charge of her own life and destiny, keep her faith, and able to move on with her life. Not only that she is hoping to help others as well.
So if she reads this I just want her to know Luky Sherman like Elizabeth I, Susan B. Anthoy, and so many others you are an inspiration to women everywhere.

I have finished!

I have finished my fourth book in my tales of Aradia series! I have sent it to my editor and to my friends to be looked at. After getting the suggestions and edits I will publish it pronto. Now all 6 more books to go in my ten volume series of Tales of Aradia the Last Witch.

After signing publisher deal, Locke's books may be stocked in paperback

And he started out as an indie author like us all.

Well I guess everyone can't like my book. I won't deny Stephanie Meyer did inspire me but so do other books like Annne Rice and Dracula. Lucky, I have gotten an editor. Fingers crossed that he and I can both make this book reach it's potential.

By the way Larissa thanks for being so honest. You rock!

One of the things my editor first complimented me on was the decision to make my first eBook free. My sister and her boyfriend helped me to decide this, but I like to think that going through with it was what truly helped me. There are advantages to being courteous to ur customers.

My editor just sent me the few pages of my edited book

And I have to say that it is AMAZING! I can't wait until he is done and I can upload it on to Smashwords and my other platforms to sell it. I simply can't wait. My fans will love it! I am just at loss what to do with the people who have already reviewed my book...should i re-send it to them or what? I will have to discuss it with my editor, Harry. but seriously the man is an artist. I will have to remind myself when he is done to post an announcement that it is done.

I never know if I will ever get to be as great as her, but I can honestly she is doing what she thinks is right. I only wish I knew where my writing will take me. I do hope however that self-publishing will be able to rid itself of the stigma that it has. I think I will not sign a deal because after school I will have nothing better to do. I will need expertise though. But I will cross that bridge when I get to it. Some people hate pen names but I just don't want that kind of scrutiny. I wish I could ask JK Rowling or Amanda Hocking if she gets harassment because she is famous? I would like to be famous but I do want the harassment that goes with it but I don't think it's possible to have one without the other.

More on me finding an editor!

He's an amazing guy! From Vegas. With a lovely wife who sees the potential in my book series. He has featured a info bit on me on his website. Wish me luck in this turning into an amazing partnership.

End of the road for professional publishing?

End of the road for professional publishing?

Hopefully self publishing will help build a better relationship between writer and publisher.
Or at least I hope.

If there is one thing I want to do most

Is be an advocate for anti-bullying. We don't accept racism or pedophiles in our society why should accept bullies? I know it's part of life, but so is murder and yet we punish people who commit that don't we?

Its amazing...

Especially when they never ask for your advice or know what the hell it is that makes you happy. My entire life I have always been told I am wrong about everything but then again maybe that's the hazard of living in D.C. Everyone here thinks they know best and whats worse is they have attitudes about it especially bad ones. My dad says that's maybe one of things i got used to in TX everyone not having bad attitudes that is. Here, well like I said its D.C. I love it here though. I mean Bethesda, MD (which is very close to Washington d.c. hence why I refer to it as so) is my home the only place i have ever called home.

but i guess what really bugs me is that people like my dad, my teachers, my family, and my friends acting like i am worthless or weird or God knows what else? I mean they think i am weird when they discuss Paris Hilton's sex tape and how hot she looked in the middle of the TA (theater arts) building where we hang out at the loudest tone possible. Others discuss how easily it is easy to sleep with one guy and then three others. and they think I am weird just because I talk fast, and slur and sometimes jumble my words. Worst of all, they always presume that I want and need friends or people in general. I like being alone because when you are alone no one can criticize you or put you down or make you feel guilty. You don't have to bend over backwards to do things for them or force a smile to your face all the while they are dissing you and making you feel worthless.

My dad is always telling me that I need friends and that I need to hang out with people. He worries when i spend too much time in my room on the Internet never mind that that is what makes me happy instead hanging out with a bunch of dominating freaks. I like being alone I hate being around people whom are always demanding, criticizing, and yelling when I know I am ten times the person they will never be.

I am just so tired of people thinking they know better than me. Whats worse is my Dad asking me constantly to act like an adult and than thinking I am too child like in my mind or thoughts to ever act like one. In other words he thinks I am too stupid.

of course every psychiatrist believes isolating oneself from society is a sure-sign of sociopath tendencies which sounds funny coming from people who are almost always never seen in public. The fact is I could never hurt someone i just wish it was possible for people to back off and back out of my life.

My parents wonder if i will ever get married or have kids or anything but let me tell you something after having a family like mine and the friends that I have now well needless to say the day I am truly on my own financially with my own career and my own place I will never and me never ever try to have a family or friends again. Because I think one of them in a lifetime is enough.
