49 years gone...
I've never dreaded old age, but, never looked forward to it either. Then, my 49th birthday came, and on that day, I sat quietly and counted my blessings, and, this year has been an exceptional one. There had been tough times, but, there have also been great accomplishments.

My brother is a drug addict, and he stole our rent money for months, and this month, we were evicted because of it. Even when I did drugs, the rent was paid. The judge was sympathetic, but we refused to have my brother locked up, so, victim services wouldn't give us the money he stole. In the end, we're safe, and have a nice place in Torrington Connecticut, so, age has taught us how to deal with adversity well.


At the same time, my books have been selling well. A Life Gone Awry: My Story of the Elan School, is my biggest seller. One year ago yesterday, Elan announced that it was going to close, and news of this book spread to hundreds of thousands of people.

As much as I  want to write romance, my memoirs aren't done, and I'm OCD, so, I can't move on until it is. I'm almost ready to release, Out of the Darkness: A Story of Love and Hate and AIDS.

How many writers have written four memoirs? None I can find. I don't know whether to be grateful for my screwed up life, or if I would have been happier living a normal 49 years, writing romance. I think I could stand the boredom of a ho-hum life, and, I love writing sex scenes, so I think I would have been happy.

However, I was dealt the hand I was, and I've played it well enough to live to tell the story. Stay tuned for news of my next release. It's going to be a good one

Thank you all for the birthday wishes

Wayne is full of shit, his brother did not steal his rent money nor has negatively impacted his life. Wayne is the drug addict and alcoholic and Wayne blew through the rent money and then skipped out on the apartment leaving Elizabeth and his brother to clean up the mess.
Wayne is an expert on blaming everyone else for his problems he creates.

 Relocation, relocation, relocation
So, I'm in Lebanon, Missouri. It's a long story.

This is as good a place to finish my nervous breakdown as any :P

Seriously, I'm house sitting for a friend while he's away in rehab, and when he gets out, I'm going to rent a house here and buy a motorcycle because I can afford to do that here with the money I'm making from my books.  I like that idea :)

Liz will be following me in April. I miss her but time alone has kickstarted the next book, and this book needs to be done.
So, that's me for now :)

He never did a damn thing in Missouri aside from fuck over Larry Beck ex-Elan survivor. Wayne was thrown out of Larry's house and thrown off of the Elan F/B site because he did not live up to his responsibilities.
Elizabeth, never got to make it there because once again Wayne was a selfish prick.

  Work, work, work in progress
So, the boring country life is working out well for my writing. The Game: A Return to the Elan School, is up to 16,194 words, 44 pages and is done with the first edit. I have 5,921 unedited, but that's more of an outline than anything. It's too much, too fast

As they say, "You don't write a book, you rewrite a book"

I was attacked for saying that on my Facebook wall once, but the person obviously has never written a memoir

I look forward to the end of this book because I have two erotica shorts and two romance novels in varoius folders, ready to be written. Actually, rewritten :)

Hope everyone is doing well, and is happy. I know I am

Peace

This was not a good time for Larry because Wayne was screwing him over. Wayne was asked to leave for the first time this month and refused. Larry couldn't do a damn thing about it because he couldn't be there.

 Homeward bound
My time here is done. The wife misses me.

The people here are very nice, and the prices are the best, but I have a new plan, and may land in Virginia or Florida for a while. So, August 3rd I'm off to Connecticut.

I'm not getting any younger. I want to see places and meet people. :)

I'm going to be on Bipolar Nation Radio with Susan Schofield on July 29th to promote my new book, The Game. http://www.latalkradio.com/Bipolar.php
 :)
I may say something interesting. Tune in

Peace all. Hope your day is as good as mine.


Wayne was escorted out of Larry's house, evicted is what they call it. Check out the disconnect he is acting out on his blog. None of his friends have any idea that Wayne is screwing over Larry, being evicted from the house and his life is once again thrown upside down.

  Back online, but...
I have a first draft for Infidel: A Love Story and the query letter is hot

The only thing I haven't done is to sell a book to a big house. This is the one. I'm sure. Don't bet against me. :)

But this means I have to limit my social network time. I hate being away from my friends, but this needs to get done.

I have a good story and likable characters. I have tragedy and humor and beauty.

How can I lose?

Peace everyone. After this I plan to take a few months and get lost in the internet :)

Back in Connecticut

I just created an account and i've read all about anchor academy from  post from 2004 and 2005. That is were my concern is. I was a tudent and was physically beaten, emotionally abused, and sometimes denied food and bathroom priviliges. I remember on one ocassion i said "oh my god" and i was choked out and i woke up and asked what had happened i was told by sam white that i used the lords name in vain. I have horrible stories about what happened to me and other kids. I cannot relate to anybody about my experiences because nobody can understand the severity of my situation. If your interested please write me. Please.
