    What amuses me is that you're still trying to insult me.
    First you said I was lying about being married.
    Then you said I was lying about publishing.
    Now I'm lying about being in Kansas?

    Seriously, what is your malfunction?

    Hmmmm..Not liking either


    You need something that will make people look and force them to open the book up..

    I say keep the hat but bring in a bear skin rug and lay on the rug buck naked..or if you plan on writing a book on the erotic christian mind then use that cover..

    damn. I just read the back of the book. I must say, that's a brilliant way to spin "this author knows little to nothing about the subject matter of this book and likely never will." Another person who does that is John McWhorter, who's a linguist but feels an overwhelming desire to keep writing books on sociology. [dunno]

    Where can I get an e-notice of when this book is released. I'm always looking for new reading material when I'm in the Cruiser driving all over the country and reading books by new and unknown authors is one way I pass the time

    What did I say about slangin?


    Thanks, I'll take that as a backhanded compliment.


    Kinda like how you have a degree in Law but want to be a rapper?
    The difference I suppose is that you know him and he doesn't know you.

    Speaking of people who have degrees in one field and do something unrelated . . .
    Aldous Huxley who is best known NOT for his literature but for his Essays in "Vanity Fair" (which have been turned into a 6 Volume Set discussing everything from Philosophy to Science, Sociology to Native Americans out of New Mexico, Physiology to The various religions) and how he absolutely shattered his Grandfather's (Thomas Huxley) reputation after being known around the world as "Darwin's Bulldog" by publishing "Perennial Philosophy." In fact, he even argued against the concept of education being considered a requirement for the sole reason that the majority of the world's (histories) most influential thinkers were not "learned" men.


    Just a thought. You may want to abandon your rediculous mind frame of judging people by a standard which was designed to uphold the elite. Especially since you can't seem to succeed at doing what the "uneducated" do and ultimately will have to use that degree to bullshit your way through life dying a failure at leaving any lasting memory in the world. On your tombstone it will read: "Kashta K. ••••• Born: 19-- Died: 19--" just like the rest of us, you arrogant prick.

    The majority of people don't read books written by scholars for two main reasons:
    1. Scholars talk over people's heads with big ass words to disguise the fact that their writing abilities lack.
    2. Scholars are assholes who think that because they have a piece of paper (degree) that automatically makes them right when 99% of the time they are proven by the "uneducated" to be wrong.

    Baby steps.
    Wack cover today, big budget cover tomorrow.


    Just a little advice, haters never succeed.
    That's why they're haters.
    But hey, who knows right . . .
    Aren't you supposed to be a legend by now?

    BTW - I rejected the little house on the prarie cover and went with the ocean one. That's the cover that will be in stores.

    Here's some wack covers by other writers who no longer live with their mother:

    Can't say that my cover is lookin too shabby in contrast:
    [​IMG]




    It's usually the books with the fancy covers that aren't worth reading.
    People who read books aren't generally concerned with how the cover looks.
    In fact, back in the day they didn't even use covers. The books were just hard bound. I actually prefer that but times change. I'd be happy with just the title on a white mask.

    Somebody else. Nobody in my family has any semblance of hair-loss.

    Interesting, though, that he has all those books about wars because my grandpa has written many short-stories like those and of course served in a couple wars.
