Thinking of Suicide
saved the pills collected them like pocket change never certain how many he had or needed never sure how much more he could take after he took them he waited and he waited stretched out on the sofa finally to rest destined for this it added up to this one final nap the drift of years bumps of hope certain grief war and work friends and time choice and chance quiet this way he'd go this way finally in charge much later, when I called, it rang a bit, and then he answered.

Critical Factors Regarding Self Publishing

So you've written an epic manuscript, and you are shopping it around to agents. Or maybe you're skipping the agents and trying to go directly to the publishers. Only you've been at it for six months, and no luck. Should you consider self publishing as an option? If you are, then this article is for you. I'll go over the basics of self publishing and how it works, so you can make a better decision.

Many differences exist between self publishers and traditional publishing companies. In general, traditional publishing companies take care of the design, the editing, and all of the other behind the scenes work. Aside from actually printing your book, everything else is your responsibility with a self publishing company.

One thing you should think about is marketing. Without solid marketing, nobody will even know about your book. With a traditional publisher, they take care of all of that. With a self publishing company, you've got to do all of it on your own. Which means selling it online, or calling every bookstore yourself and seeing if they'll stock your book.

One specific way to market your book is to take it to various book shows. This is where the book distributors look around for new books to stock in the main bookstores. If they see your book there and like it, there's a good chance it will on thousands of shelves across the country. Some self publishing companies offer this as an extra service, which can be pretty expensive.

One thing to keep in mind is that if you go through a self publisher, your book will be print on demand. This means that your book will only be printed if somebody places an order for it, either a bookstore, or customer ordering it online. This will make the cost a few dollars higher. When traditional publishing companies print books, they print thousands at a time, making it much cheaper. So your customers will have to pay a couple extra dollars for your book.

Some of the benefits of self publishing your book is that you get a higher percentage of each sale, and you get much more control of the manuscript itself, as well as the cover design. As the author, you will generally have to approve every change that is made to either one of these. And of course, for many authors, self publishing is the first step in a lucrative career as a novelist, as many others have found.

Poetry endangers the established order  of the soul - Plato

We've become irrelevant, in fact trivial. We sit at the back doors of our souls in straight lines, silent, in one breath. Here and there, philosophers expound truth, inside their sight, never knowing the sky has fallen, and with it the night. Here and there, poets sell words on street corners. What little is left unsaid, buys daily bread. Here and there, teachers embrace linear thought; shape perfect lies to hear them talk. Together we step back from our souls. One foot in shadows; the other in twilight. Soon, the sun sets and night wakes alone.
Yann Arthus Bertrand

You Take Advantage of My Good Mood TOP  Thinking of Suicide   J. K. DURICK we've read it a hundred times before, the suicide, the one who can't take it any longer, abashed and abused. Yes. But here the suicide fails. Been there, you say. Then let me ask who is the omniscient "I" who knows all about HOW the act has been prepared? and what happened before the call? At closure, is the speaker dead?
