Times are bad. Children no longer obey their parents, and everyone is writing a book.

Myself included.

Keep a weather eye on the Kindle Store.

This is just the tip of the iceberg......

I stopped checking your blog space for so long because you had stopped writing for so long.... It is now Jan of 2012....so where's the Kindle book?

It's on Chapter 3. Sadly, I still have to work for basic necessities, and don't have the luxury of a publisher's advance.

Patience, patience. :)

"Kepp a weather eye on the Kindle Store".

And how will we know, Mr. Valannin? We don't even know your real name.

Can't wait to read it, though.

Read your AudioQuest and Lost Symbol review... very funny. Ever think of going to the movies or doing book reviews on your blog? I think you'll garner a lot of attention. If you get enough hits, then you can start advertising. Maybe with that dough, you can use it to help write and market your book! If you want some help with the biz side, holla!

Well, I loved your review of the Dan Brown symbol book and was going to link to it elsewhere on Amazon. I suppose it will still work if I do but there will be some question among readers in the forum if Pantheon Outcast, which currently appears in your screen name on Amazon, is the title of the book you are writing. By attempting to call attention to your great review and post the link to it, I would inadvertently be calling attention to the fact that you are possibly almost nearly kinda but not really (yet) in violation of Amazon's rules (they don't allow book names in screen names). The only reason I am mentioning it because there isn't a book by that name yet so no harm no foul but I wanted to point it out for future reference in case that sort of thing is of interest to you.

Still waiting for news of your book. Rumor has it your fans are even more restless than George Martin's. I myself am thinking about creating my own blog: "Write the book, Valannin!"

Reason # 1147 To Enroll Your Kids In Private School

Here's a brief story I'd like to relate while it's still fresh in my mind; typically, my articles are 3-4 pages, and quite frankly, it's far too hot to create such a magnum opus tonight. So, I offer you an ultra-condensed version of a disturbing event which took place this past Friday.
Actually, to set the stage, we have to go back to the previous Friday, when the Superintendent of our District happened to be visiting our school. To explain why he was there, I'd have to go over the one-page cap I've set for myself for this article, so suffice it to say that he was trying to do in late May what he should have been doing all year long – namely, his job.
While he is visiting, a student decides it would be a real hoot to throw a glass bottle out of a third-floor classroom window. And since the universe is not without a sense of humor, the bottle travels along a trajectory which terminates at the windshield of a brand-new car parked on the street outside. A car t…

All empty souls tend toward extreme opinions (W. B. Yeats)

Something occurred to me as I was having a conversation with a friend today, (she’s definitely one of the Outcast by the way), when she mentioned that I wasn’t very “open-minded.” The phrase “open-minded” is perhaps the most aggravating and deceptive American axioms ever invented. Why? Because it’s a trap. The only reason people see others as not “open-minded” is because they are not in agreement about a particular subject. If someone says, “I don’t think the U.S. ever put a man on the moon,” I’d disagree, because there’s tons of evidence to the contrary. But then I’d be met with the dreaded “you need to be more open-minded!” Well, shouldn’t they have the same level of open-mindedness? Of course not. Because in their lexicon, “open-minded” means “believing any old bit of nonsense as long as it goes against tradition.” Cold, hard facts scare these people, so they hide behind the gilded shield of “opinions.”

To be honest, I don’t believe there are any such things as opinions. There are f…
