What purpose do book publishers serve? — Tech News and Analysis

What purpose do book publishers serve? — Tech News and Analysis

I will always think self publishing was the only way to go. Many publishers hold too many cards, and the last thing you want to do is play your hand in that kind of scenario.

Suicide victim's kin speak up on bullying

Suicide victim's kin speak up on bullying

Twice I tried to comitt suicide, twice I failed, and I am glad. Never do this it may not seem so big of a deal but try imagining what will happen to ur family. they will blame themselves and it will tear them apart.
Guess who stopped me from my attempts beside faith in the Lord? My family. they made me realize that I cannot do this to them so to whomever reads this and has thoughts get help because in the end life may be tough but u gotta keep trying not just for yourself but for ur loved ones.

I keep trying and my family makes it worth it.

One day my story will be added to this list as well. To the people who share my disability we are the Champions my friends!

Books being made into movies...

My best friend Kim pointed out to me that books being made into movies are not necessarily a good thing. Plenty of fantasy books have been adapted such as Eragon, Blood and Chocolate, and the Seeker: the Dark is Rising. They were not box office smashes to say the least. Yet Harry Potter (as inaccurate as the films were) was a huge box office check deposited into JK Rowling's bank. The Lord of the Rings movies were huge as well.

I wonder what makes a book adapted into a movie good? my initial belief was if my book gets turned into a movie i will stay out of the project. However, i think the authors stay out of them too much. Maybe if the authors got involved the movies wouldnt suck so much. One of my other friends even pointed out to me "its your book u have a right to make sure its represented right." I think thats the direction Harry and I will go with if Aradia ever gets turned into a film. We will get directly involved in it. We will talk to the casting people, make announcements to the public, and so much more. Its worth a shot after all.

Great news!

Not only have my editor and I have edited and perfected the first volume to the Tales of Aradia series. How do I know its perfect because the moment my father who is a die hard non fiction fan started reading it he burst out laughing! Very good sign!
But I got better news! My editor and his wife are expecting a baby girl! I have already commissioned my mother to start knitting a pink baby cap! i keep hoping that Harry and Amy will consider naming the baby Aradia because I think Aradia Bradlow has a pleasant ring to it. But hey even though Amy herself agrees its a pretty name there are dangers in sharing a name with a character from a book series just ask the guys who are named Harry, Edward, and Jacob.
I have two friends named Edward who still gripe "out of all the names to name the vampire why would it have to be Edward!"

thats my editor's website with the link to the book as well. Be sure to congratulate him on facebook!
