“Premium Status” Achieved!

First venture formatting and uploading my first book into the ebook world resulted in no errors, plus the achievement of “Premius Status!”

Intense Four Days and The Result … First Ebook Publication on “Smashwords”

Well, hello!

I have been away from blog writing since I have been immersed in studying the founder of “Smashwords” Mark Coker’s ebooks on how to publish my ebooks on his ebook platform, estore and through the ebook distribution channels.

And my head is finally up because I successfully formatted and posted my first ebook on Smashwords just hours ago! I am awaiting confirmation that my book will also be going into the Premium Catalogue making it also available through the ebook retailers of Barnes & Noble, Kobo, Kindle, etc. and when the sales hit high enough, to Amazon also.

Post posting there is still much to do, including reading Mark’s “The Secrets to Ebook Publishing Success,” but I will leave you with this before I submerge again. Uploading your ebooks are free and you only pay a commission when your book(s) sells … and it’s a much heftier percentage than one receives from traditional print publishing.

Enjoy reading my interview, the sample portion of my first ebook, “Little Jack … The Return of a Warrior?”, and peruse other ebook choices, as well as discover how you can publish too by clicking on the link below.

Been a Long Time … But Now It is Time to Present to You …

I just assigned 11 ISBN numbers through the Canada and Library Archives system for the books I have written over the years and am now publishing through “smashwords.com” in the next month.

Oh my … I’m just so excited and thrilled that the funny cast of “Little Jack” will finally tickle so many child-in-us-all readers, that the powerful drama and tragedies of “Dark Horses” will take readers on an unusual ride, that the poetry books, “Respect … The Way Back into Love” and “Dark Horses … The Poems” will reach into hearts and minds in a different way, that “Connecting the Dots … with The RESPECT PRINCIPLE” will be accessible to the many as will the complementary school and community play, “Charles’ Choice” that introduces the “Connecting the Dots … with The RESPECT PRINCIPLE” concept to schools in communities of all sizes around the world.

Thank you Mark Coker for your brilliance in creating “smashwords.com” and to everyone!

Twenty years later and now both the older and the newer writings will finally come out of the storage bins and closets into the hearts and minds of readers all around the world!

Wow.

Don’t give up on who you really are and your dreams … it’s worth the wait … as are you!

BEING POSITIVE DOESN’T MEAN …

The decision to have a positive attitude does not mean everything is perfect in one’s life … that things or us, don’t need to grow and change.

On the contrary, being positive simply means that regardless of what is going on in one’s life, we have at our disposal a wealth of knowledge, resources, and opportunities to grow … to become stronger and more resilient in the leaner, harder times … that will also enable us to be more grateful and generous in the abundant, gentler times.

And if you happen to be a believer in The Bible, Jesus Christ, and the New Testament, than you know, as I am learning too, a big part of faith is staying positive because of your faith … because staying positive about whatever is happening demonstrates our level of faith … our trust in God to take bad or difficult times and in the end to use them for good … His and ours. It’s quite cool … and peaceful.

I know both are working for me by the resulting changes in me, my responses to things and people, and for the great things and people turning up in my life.

“All is well,” is not only a great phrase, but also a great feeling.

Wishing you the same.

“Thank you for the copy of your book. I will be donating it to the Parent Lending Library at …”

… Huron Heights Public School when it re-opens in the fall. Please find enclosed a cheque in payment for the book.” Dr. L. Kasianik

Dr. Kasianik’s decision and action is one of the best reviews to-date, that is, in terms of helping more people to “Connect the Dots … with The RESPECT PRINCIPLE,” and as a result, to transform respect from a value, something many of us are taught we have to earn by meeting some qualifier … race, beliefs, sex, wealth, etc. to a principle, something everyone is entitled to without any prejudicial conditions. Awesome! Thank you!

But What I Believe … is Right! … Right?

See, that is one of the major problems with our world.

We all want to be right, especially when we may not be feeling so sure about our beliefs, but want to project the confident, assured image to the world whose beliefs are “right” while everyone else’s beliefs are wrong.

But the thing is, even the “Connecting the Dots … with The RESPECT PRINCIPLE” concept, which some people think is my idea, really is only a label I applied to historical and present results generated by people’s actions or non-actions; the belief whose results demonstrate in our world that no one is entitled to being valued … respected … without meeting someone’s “right belief” or what I call a “qualifier,” such as beliefs, status, class, looks, race, religion, politics, etc.

The concept of recognizing every child … every person as valuable is simply a meeting ground for all of our different beliefs to come together while we work out how to build on what can also serve as a foundation.

It does not matter what my spiritual beliefs or yours are or any other belief we each have for that matter … provided it is not a belief that you or anyone has the right to violate another person for any reason.

What does matter is since the human brain’s capacity far outweighs its current estimated use, coming together with a non-political, non-religious, non-etc. agenda, we can start to work out together how best to tackle the numerous different problems our “right” thinking has caused.

The success of a global initiative, such as the “Connecting the Dots … with The RESPECT PRINCIPLE” one means first raising awareness and then motivating the large diverse population … from the think tank folks to middle school students and everyone in between around the world.

Being “right” is not a problem when it comes to knowing what is “right” for us, such as in the relationships, friends, careers, beliefs, etc. we choose; however, being “right” for the sake of being right, for the sake of not growing, not changing is never “right” … because like it or not, not one human being, no matter how high their IQ, has everything figured out and even if they did, it would not matter … because they share the world with us … and the smartest thing he or she could do is to raise our “Respect Level” high enough so everyone develops to the best of their potential … which in turn has everyone being and doing their best in co-creating our world.

Now don’t you think … believe … that is a “Win Win” to infinity and beyond!

ONE is NOT ENOUGH …

You have likely heard or said, “If I help or save one person … I would be satisfied.”

Not me. Maybe it is because I do not have children, plus experienced debilitating experiences from early childhood into my adult years because of my resulting brokenness and differences that I have now healed from, that my life is now dedicated to helping children and the teens and adults they will one day become … and to helping parents and in general, everyone, to move past what we may know or experienced into creating a new, healthier, happier, and rewarding way of living in our world.

Raising awareness of the pervasive, often sub or unconscious belief, what I call the Disrespect Philosophy in the just released core book, Connecting the Dots … with The RESPECT PRINCIPLE is designed to do exactly that … to help the many realize they are valued … respected … just for being a life. And that as soon as they embrace the idea, that regardless of what others may had told them, how they may have been labeled, treated or mistreated, and regardless of how they have reacted to what they have been told or experienced … they are still valuable … entitled to being treated respectfully on their journey back to a life-affirming existence.

No, one is not enough. Nor is 1000 or 10, 10,000, or even 1 million.

The reason is for every person who does not realize their own value … will not realize their own potential … he or she will not be able to contribute positively to their own life and to the world-at-large. They will not be able to deliver the best they have to offer … which means they will not be able to help others realize their potential … which in turn means they will not be able to help themselves and their loved ones live in a better world.

So, here’s your chance to change the outcome. Connect the Dots … with The Respect Principle and help me help others do the same … and reap the benefits … including the money to be saved from less health, social support, and correctional costs … that will in turn reduce the government’s need to tax its people as heavily.

And if you cannot yet help because you do not believe everyone is valuable … worthy of respect, then just consider the economics and the impact on your financial wealth. It’s a start. Perhaps now you may even be thinking, “Well, one dollar is not enough.” Sweet … because then you may be willing to help me help more people … because you know one is never enough because you honestly can’t think of just one person who deserves the life-long experience of feeling valued … respected … while everyone else does not.

Thanks!

“INTERESTING … and TRUE!”

Another reader of “Connecting the Dots … with The RESPECT PRINCIPLE” blurted excitedly “Interesting … and true!” when I saw her recently. Her tone evidenced her surprise because, as with many people who do not know people who write or create for a living, she was not expecting the book’s contents to be “interesting and true” but also, she was surprised by the whole package and that I put it together … from authoring, photography, book cover design, and publishing … because the fiction books she reads are complete packages written, prepared, and published by people she will never meet.

She was also surprised that she was enjoying the book because the type of book and subject matter is not something she normally reads either.

Which is great! Because people who do not normally read such books or the subject matter are a large part of the target audience. This reason is also why this is the third version of the book, written specifically for that target audience, yet also has enough layers and depth for those who are more familiar with such work, will have something to engage, challenge their minds, and discuss or even argue about.

Thanks S. McKinnon for your confidence to express your opinion!
