Parkway at the group’s regular monthly mee ng. She spoke on the topic of copyright law with ps for protec ng an author in the process of wri ng a book. Sedwick emphasized that copyrights are no longer required to be registered to be valid. However, Sedwick stated, “It’s a good idea to register…Gives you a nice cer ficate” and, more importantly, the ability to sue. Though a copyright no ce is not required to retain your rights, Sedwick suggested to add it. If someone wants to use your work (legally), by giving no ce and a contact, they can obtain the proper permission from the writer (you). On the topic of using real people in your wri ng, Sedwick said it is all right to men on a real person by name, but if it could damage their personal or professional reputa on, there is a risk. Sedwick admi ed copyright law is a complicated issue and has a lot to do with risk. She shared a number of ways to reduce risk including using parody and sa re, respec ng

privacy and always reaching for the truth when wri ng because it is the best defense. Sedwick’s book, The Self‐ Publisher’s Legal Handbook is a step‐ by‐step guide to legal issues authors o en face. Sedwick is a California a orney represen ng entrepreneurs and small businesses. This ar cle originally appeared on examiner.com Janice Hermrsen in a columnist, radio host and entrepreneur. She is one of the partners at LeRue Press, LLC, and the editor for What’s the Story?TM.

Brian T. Shirley About 20 years ago I was emceeing a show at The Comedy Zone in Charleston, S. C. It was my home club where I started and I was just ge ng more stage me and I had about 7‐10 minutes of decent material. The headliner that night was The Fat Doctor, whom I've since worked with several mes over the years. I went up and started the show with about 5 minutes of comedy then brought up the feature act, whose name escapes me. A er his 30 minute rou ne, I went back up, did a few more bits, made some annoucemnets,then went into the headliners intro. At this point everything was fine, that is, un l I said, " And put your hands together for 'The Fat Doctor' "! The problem was, the Fat Doctor was nowhere to be seen and he's not a small man. No big deal, I just said it again " Here he is, ' The Fat Doctor ! ' " No, here he wasn't! I looked towards the back of the room and saw the club owner Tony Kemp giving me the "Stretch" sign, meaning do more stage me un l The Fat Doctor finally showed up. I'm not sure what I did un l he got there several minutes later, but it worked. A er the show, Doc thanked me for covering his considerable ass and we had a laugh about it. I asked him what happened, why was he late , a er all he stayed in the hotel the club was in. He said he had laid down to take a nap a er his long drive to Charleston and had overslept. He was awakened by the phone ringing and the front desk clerk saying " Fat Doctor,

BOOK REVIEW by Janice Hermsen

Alive & Thankful: Life is a gift by Lon Cole I was given this book in advance of an interview with Lon Cole on one of my radio shows. Having known a few people who have been diagnosed with early‐onset Alzheimer’s, it was a surprise to me to hear the honesty with which this poetry was wri en. Alive and Thankful: Life is a Gi by Lon Cole is a portrayal, in poetry, of the struggle of a man faced with early‐onset Alzheimer’s. In his poem, “Rejec on”, Cole expresses how anyone might feel, but when you think about what he’s facing, it takes on an even deeper meaning: “I was sorry I asked for help. I’m more sorry you turned me away. I was hoping you could give me a hand. You could have easily made my day.” I enjoy rhymed poetry, so I was immediately drawn to it. Though it may not always be perfect in meter or rhyme, the message is clearly more important. A good read. Thanks, Lon Cole. (Available on Amazon.)

Ken Roberts Supposedly, the great Albert Einstein said that compound interest was the eighth wonder of the world. It’s debatable whether he really said that, but compound interest can really work wonders for your long term re rement savings. Young people should start their savings program as early in life as they can and make contribu ons on a consistent basis. If you do want to save for re rement, is helps a lot to start early and give your funds me to compound. According to an example on the Fidelity website, a person that starts saving at age 25 and contributes $5,500 per year for ten years and then stops, will have more money at age 65 than someone who starts at age 35 and contributes $5,500 per year for thirty years. They assumed an average growth rate of 7% for that example. The person who started at age 25 and put in a total of $55,000 over ten years would see their account grow to $618,951 at age 65. The person who started at 35 and contributed $165,000 would have $555,902 at the same age. That’s a difference of $63,049 at re rement age and the saver who started early and stopped contributed $110,000 less; they just started ten years sooner. If you have access to an employer sponsored re rement plan at work, take advantage of it, especially if your employer makes matching contribu ons. If you don’t have a re rement plan at work use an IRA, Individual Re rement Account. Two types of IRAs are the tradi onal and the Roth. You can s ll make an IRA contribu on up to April 15th or un l the me you file your taxes. Tradi onal IRAs and Roth IRAs differ in their tax treatment. The contribu on limits are the same for either account. The maximum amount you can contribute is $5,500 or $6,500 if

The time value of money you’re over the ripe old age of 50 for the tax year 2015. Tradi onal IRAS are subject to mandatory distribu ons which must begin at age 70 ½, while Roth IRAS are not subject to mandatory distribu on rules, so you can leave the funds in a tax deferred account as long as you want. Contribu ons to a tradi onal IRA are tax deduc ble and will lower your AGI, adjusted gross income. Roth contribu ons are not tax deduc ble. So, if you’ve es mated your taxes for this year and it looks like you may have a tax liability, contribu ons to a tradi onal IRA could lower your taxes. If you don’t have much tax due a Roth might make more sense. Withdrawals are treated differently, too. Withdrawals from the tradi onal IRA are subject to income tax and withdrawals from a Roth are not. Both types of accounts allow for tax deferred growth of your funds. Remember, save early and save o en.

“Walk the Turtle”

Mike Aloia

Children of God Wisdom is given to our soul and spirit, pain of heartbreak we all have inured, for it is part of the process of learning how to harness the prisms of spirituality and understanding the frailty of this gi of life, When the eyes of a newborn first open and the journey begins, we are blessed to realize the deeper meanings in life, to keep our heads held high, give thanks to the spirit in the sky and smile to the sunshine.

The dawning of a new age, a shi into a digital revolu on, the witnessing of constant change inside ourselves ushers in the evolu on of awakenings worldwide, our eyes see the visions of tomorrow.

We walk the turtle with in mate grace and touch, we follow our hearts, passions and dreams, we search for knowledge, love and acceptance, we forgive and are forgiven, we pray for we are children of God.

We must open our hearts and minds to unleash the power of energy in order to create the light of the universe into the lives of human species, we each carry the magic, we each share a common bond.

Richard G. Pugh April is a fi ng month in Nevada to refresh memory of the events leading up to the establishment of the Pony Express: a wild eyed entrepreneurial enterprize las ng li le more than 19 months was originally named the Central Overland California and Pikes Peak Express Company. It was set up to use 500 first class animals to carry mail and important documents 1,966 miles from St. Joseph Missouri to San Francisco with routes covering Missouri, Kansas, Nebraska, Colorado, Wyoming, Utah, Nevada, and California. Not all of these were states at this me…several were but territories. The plan was designed to hire 80 light weight riders who were to navigate the 10 to 15 mile distances between sta ons as fast as they could, change exhausted horses, and con nue to the next sta on. Sta on personnel at the 190 sta ons would groom, feed and rest these sturdy, mostly mustang horses, and in rota on hand them off to the next riders. Riders were expected to be in saddle no more than 90 to 120 miles per day. And the en re trip was designed to deliver the mail in 10 days. It all started on April 3, 1860 in St. Joseph, Missouri with a grand send off and high expecta ons. Le ers were placed in bulging saddle bags and costs $5.00 for each half once The first rider was a young man named Johnnie Frey, who cau oned the many well‐wishers not to pull hair from his horses tail and mane as souvenirs and mementos as he was leaving town. He was quoted as saying it was “…his job to prevent cruelty to animals!” Company policy at that me was not always so mindful of animal welfare, however. The stated policy was “if you kill a horse by riding fast, we will buy you a be er one.” Riders could not weigh more than one hundred and twenty‐five pounds and they were

The Pony Express Adventure in Nevada: A 156th Anniversary instructed to take excep onal care of their horses: not so much because they loved, respected, and admired these sturdy sure footed animals, but principally because if they were worked too hard‐‐ like died from exhaus on‐‐ they were expected to deliver the mail by foot to the next sta on. Some of these sta ons were no more than caves or mud shacks. Frequently they were set upon by Indians who wanted their horses. In Nevada 47 sta ons were set from Prairie Gate (Wendover) in the east to Genoa at the eastern foot of the Sierra. While hun ng north east of Eureka, Nevada, over the years our group was frequently reminded by brass markers that the Pony Express had passed through the area. A er crossing the mountains and arriving at Su er’s Fort (Sacramento) horse and riders would take boats to San Francisco on the final leg of the journey. The delivering of mail during those eighteen months was a dangerous job. Bad weather, rough terrain, accidents, and bandits took their tolls on both animals and riders. One rider was killed…froze to death, and scores of horses were stolen or killed by Indians. Records indicate some were as young as eleven years old, but one was listed as being and

D. M. Stoddard, MBA What is the biggest ques on for a self‐ published author – how do I connect with my reader? Your masterpiece is in the distribu on channels, including such partners as Ingram, Createspace, and Amazon, along with hundreds of thousands of other likeable covers. Over the last five years, the push has been to sell through social media, but that does not work for every book. I spend as much or more me on social media as I do wri ng my manuscripts and no one seems to have defini ve proof whether Twi er, Facebook, Pinterest, or some other applica on provides a be er avenue to readers, crea ng more book sales. To complicate ma ers, what works for one author probably won’t work for another, par cularly across genres. The old formula for marke ng – product, price, posi on, and promo on – may not be as reliable as it once was, but the goal remains the same. Find the cross sec on for readers, author/sellers, and marke ng. Bull’s‐eye! If you spend all your me pos ng in an applica on where your readers never browse, the image of “do it yourself”, self‐publishing author is quickly strained. And if you find that nook where your readers reside, spending too much me can be just as counterproduc ve. A good strategic (marke ng) plan will help. To ease your stress, build your partnerships with other authors and author groups. Like the three musketeers, “one for all and all for one”, the success of one author helps all the others in a group. Groups, like Writers’ Café which I belong to, offer a great and necessary service; I have learned a lot through their website, but it is really easy to get lost in the crowd. I suggest supplemen ng your professional memberships with small, successful groups that are focused in your genre. For example, I am a member of the Fantasy/Sci‐Fi Net. When an author’s fan finishes his/ her most recent book, they are going to look for another book. If your cover is in the mix, you gain exposure. As the connec ng conduit between readers and authors/sellers con nues to evolve, I believe independent publishers (i.e. non‐tradi onal) may offer addi onal op ons. A local independent publisher may offer print services that will allow authors to avoid shipping fees from larger distributors. Partnering with local publisher/printers

Connecting with your reader could also increase your visibility to poten al readers. Consignment agreements for local sales could give you access to their events and your book could add to their selec on. If your book does well, it might grow to a publishing opportunity. If that goes well, maybe a larger publisher will no ce. The bo om line is that you must do two things: be innova ve, and be willing to change. We are no longer in the stable world of brick and mortar. D.M. Stoddard has a Master’s degree and has studied Chinese, Spanish, and Tagalog, although English Is now his only func onal language. He is re red from the United States Navy and currently works for the State of Nevada. He and his son wrote and published Lost Kingdom of Terrace Xul, The Bard’s Song© for the song in chapter nine of The Legend of Jerrod. D.M. used watercolors to paint the sword on his first book and oils to paint the dagger on his second book. He did the maps in pen and ink for both. As an author, he was most influenced by J.R.R. Tolkien. He was also influenced by Terry Brooks, Anne McCaffrey, and David Eddings. The most influen al quote D.M. Stoddard heard was from his crea ve wri ng professor: “Just keep wri ng.” Contacts: kingdomtorrence@aol.com Twi er: @kingdomtorrence www.KingdomOfTorrence.com

BOOK REVIEW by Janice Hermsen

Saying Goodbye: Facing the Loss of a Loved One by Cecil Murphey and Gary Roe I had the pleasure of interviewing Gary Roe on The Book Hound Radio Show shortly before the release of his book Heartbroken: Healing from the loss of a spouse in. He was kind enough to send an addi onal book for my review, Saying Goodbye. The tle speaks volumes, especially if you have faced the impending death of a loved one. Gary Roe is a writer, speaker and hospice chaplain. Co‐ author, Cecil Murphey is a veteran author and former pastor. Together, they share words of comfort and guidance to aid the reader through the difficult me of losing someone we love. The book is not preachy. Both Murphey and Roe share stories from their experiences with others that have faced death and provide insight into the different ways to emo onally prepare. As Roe states in the beginning of the book, “When it comes to death,...ours [our culture] is death‐denying so we don’t prepare. The risk is not expressing thanks, forgiving and making amends. Saying Goodbye is available on Amazon.
