Finally my work had paid off, I would become published for the first time officially on October the 1st 2014. In just over a year I had been doped up on psych medication, spent eight days in twenty- two hour lock down, forced back to square one, found myself in a courtroom eleven times, divorced, run out of the places I had to go and made homeless, Alienated by the people I knew, fought back when fucked with, and documented the ride as I went along even against legal advice to not do so, even though FOX NEWS had no problems only telling part of the story to the entire nation. The most important thing above all of it, is that none of it was enough to keep me from doing exactly what I was setting myself to do. Nothing since could pull that off either. Now it was time to let those who remained know.
Coming up on ten hours to go. 😀 and I am out and about shamelessly promoting myself as I type.
My bad it is apparently now in a part of the process called live-updates publishing which means it can be viewed and bought now while they finish up processing.
Yes, you get to play too. Natasha is choosing your GRANDE FINALE for the evening, it’s from The Crow. (Go figure)…….Oh you cheating ass bitch I keep forgetting you can read my thoughts….Yeah I’m a tiger, you’re a bird, don’t fuck with me. 😉 ……Yeah, you know I’m joking. LOL I know I’m crazy, I mean right? You want proof that some magical bird woman came to me and turned shit around…..I have none to give you, that’s the breaks. However if you want proof of what the belief in the SYMBOL of UNCONDITIONAL LOVE that is that magical bird woman coming to me and turning shit around has done FOR ME. Well the proof is in the results, isn’t it? When was the last time you knew of someone getting booted in the snow with jack shit to thier name, walking over 20 miles on a whim just to end up in an ER where they find an illness that could have taken them out before it does, wind up on a damn riverbank for over a month while wondering how the fuck I’m going to deal with that circumstance on top of facing a felony charge, sink to the lowest depths a person can and not only bounce back but accomplish somthing they have meant to accomplish most of their lives in the process? Many say that social media is not the place for personal issues, but because I have been open about my situation from the start, you can say you have seen a MIRACLE and it wasn’t some bullshit you saw on a TV show or read in a book. It was real. It was someone you knew. If I don’t wake up in the morning I can still be proud that I showed people at least one thing they can believe in for real. I hope you take that to heart, not because I’m special, but because I’m really not, I’m JUST like you. Now lets sign this shit off in style, shall we. 😀 < Because I stand by my belief that Natasha will become one of my best known and most loved characters in “The Spirit Realm” series and because every good writer worth their ass keeps the suspension of disbelief going And look at the facts it happened and it would not be the last time that it did. I have since published two more stories with a third on the way, started this blog that has a readership extending to 71 countries around the world in all. I would still have my ups and downs but have not and will not lose sight of what matters most. I will close this narrative it’s final entry being short and sweet, with a post that my Aunt Peepsi had tagged me in directly after I had posted the above statement. I think it speaks volumes about coming full circle with something no matter how long it may take you to do so, it can be done, no matter how far down this world may put you, broken and empty is just that, broken and empty, a follower just seeking to impress is not the same as a leader who will forge the way regardless of how unpopular it may make them. I began this tale accused of being like that fucking freak who shot up a movie theater in Colarado, it even said so in the police report, I would end it showing you that even when faced with a hopeless situation that seems no man could get out of, That if you make yourself more than a man, if you devote yourself to an ideal and if they can’t stop you, then you become something else entirely, IRONIC huh?…….. 😀 I told you the story would take a turn for the better – Love BIG CAT
My nephew Shane Workman just got his first book published and this is what I found under his dedication. Shayne I am so proud of you, you really brightened my day. How many people keep a childhood promise ? You are the only one I know. You have full filled my life long dream , to publish a book. This is not just “a thank you” it is from the heart, thank you for remembering a promise from so many years ago. I hope it becomes a Best Seller and I hope there are many more to come. Maybe someday you can write a novel from my journal, it would make interesting reading lol. Good Luck I love you — and once again thank you for remembering me. Aunt Peeps
This is for Dreama “Aunt Peepsi” Lake. Do you remember that promise I made, oh about 27 years ago I was in my single digits in years, that I would dedicate the very first thing I ever published to you? Well it took me awhile but you can now officially consider that promise fulfilled.
I have often turned to the wisdom of Bruce Lee in my life when I was not sure where to go in it, but I think all things considering the last line should belong to another of the blood line. One who was just as wise and immortal in his own right……. And, well, his rise did come more during my generation. 😀
