For book/ebook authors, publishers, & self-publishers
The only challenge for me is writing a book that I like. I am very selfish in that respect. I am not in it for the sale, but for the historical advantage I will derive from it. Let me explain. I am working toward immortality and this is my way. I have extended my existence by having the good fortune to pass on a set of fantastic genes to four other people who enjoy life as much as I do, I have built a house that will stand for over one-hundred years, but nothing I have done will for sure, carry me far, far into the future. That is why I write. I taught, among other things, history and the writings of the caveman has always intrigued me. What were they thinking when they learned how to mix, match and mesh dyes and paints on hides and cave walls to pass on a story to followers that they would never know. (or would they) Is it possible that when someone in the future reads our books, they will be talking with us or at the very least, listening to us? Some of our cave dwellers, actually drew objects that look like spacemen and space ships. Was that intended to tell us something? Isn't life grand, lots of questions and no answers. At least answers that never change from one generation to the next. When my grandmother told me that man would never be able to make it to the moon, that was a long time before I worked on the Mercury and Gemini projects. What changed? The knowledge that some one altered as it was being passed along. I love it.
