The Literary Drover No. 1575

Reference to the Golden Eagle has brought additional interest to The Jhon Collector Mysteries. Mention of personal experience has resulted in, conservatively, a deluge of communications from people wanting to know more.

You ask, I do:

The Golden Eagle will live in areas with elevations of up to 12,000 feet above sea level.

Reference to the Golden Eagle has brought additional interest to The Jhon Collector Mysteries. Mention of personal experience has resulted in, conservatively, a deluge of communications from people wanting to know more.

You ask, I do:

Usually found alone or in pairs, Golden Eagles typically soar or glide with wings lifted into a slight “V” and the wingtip feathers spread like fingers. They capture prey on or near the ground, locating it by soaring, flying low over the ground, or hunting from a perch.

Some consider the recent outrageous act by the alleged comedian Kathy Griffin involving a mock severed head representing the President of the United States of America to be the preface to the apocalypse. I prefer a more pragmatic interpretation: If you condone her antics know that I do not need or want your support of my writing. If you condemn her for what amounts to an act of domestic terrorism, an act that may be considered sedition and treason, I would like to know you, perhaps making you a part of my life on a regular basis.

Some have considered my declaration to be drastic. Others have embraced it without hesitation or exception. More than a few have publically and privately cheered it, and declared that they will follow my example when it comes to purging unneeded things from their lives, using block functions on Social Media platforms.

As a Writer I work hard to produce quality. As a Writer I work hard to earn and maintain respect for my writing, and because I do I have to wonder why anyone would spend their life attempting to achieve success and then engage in an act that can only be described as self-destructive.

It is a cliché to say so, but Life is short, so why waste it engaging in action that defies simple logic and reason?

I prefer to focus on productive undertakings. I prefer efforts that yield worthwhile results. And I prefer to associate with like-minded individuals in pursuit of these goals.

Writing, publishing, achieving financial success from quality writing is a good thing. Being able to take such a success and help others – that’s a great thing, and as interest in SCENE OF A CRIME/FOR UNTO US continues to grow and grow that goal becomes a reality for more and more people in need.

The Literary Drover No. 1570

Interest in SCENE OF A CRIME/FOR UNTO US continues to grow. Bookstores and booksellers alike increasingly contact me, wanting to know how they can carry my book. Efforts are underway to fulfill these requests, and I owe the interest to those who have supported the Jhon Collector Mysteries through word of mouth.
