Robert Run

Robert has been putting synonyms on his oatmeal since he was a little kid.

This is Robert's first attempt at being seriously published. While he has folders full of material, both physical and digital, thinking of himself as someone other people might be interested in reading is new for him.

He has piles of song lyrics from his time as a young man in rock bands, wads of short stories, a pretty good number of vignettes, a couple of fairy tales and short screenplays. Not many people have seen any of it.

The youngest of six kids by five years, there was no shortage of reading material for Rob in the home. He was so impressed with all these older siblings engrossed in their reading. He thought at a very young age that he wanted to be someone who writes a book that gets left lying on a table in people's homes.

Quote from Rob: "When I was a kid, I thought everyone was a writer, otherwise what are all those letters and words for?"

Update #5 - Prepping for a push Dec. 9, 2015

If you want to see all the updates you can go here I think https://publishizer.com/war-and-vegetables/updates

I've added a couple of sample chapters and I am going to add one more. You can see from my chapters that I need editing help. There are a couple of almost run-on sentences, also some overused conjunctions. I am aware of this but that does not mean another set of eyes is not important. Every time I look at it I find more to fix. Enough is enough, I need an Editor.

In other words, I'm shopping for an editor, in fact, that's what this campaign is eyeing to pay for, your books, an editor, and hopefully formatting.

Know any editors? How about translation ideas?

In the next couple of days I am going to do a major marketing push across a range of subjects from economics, energy, hemp, marijuana, food, farming, and small towns, to baseball, humor, writing, music, astronomy and literature.

War and Vegetables references Darwin, Stephen Crane, R.D. Laing, Realism, Naturalism and Impressionism (Symbolism), which is the realm I think my book fits into most. There are a lot of weird references in the book.. you gotta figure.. it's me.

Honestly, I don't think my book does more than say a lot of things we already know, in some fun an interesting ways. It could be a good introduction to new ideas for stubborn people (you know who I mean.. grrr.). And, perhaps, says a couple of things that I have not heard anywhere else. It will challenge some people on both the right and the left that is for sure.

So.. if you have a giant email list or social media account, please share.

Also, be aware. With Publishizer, even if I don't meet my goal, the payments go through.. and that means a book for you no matter what. Believe me, it is a motivating factor. That is a very good thing.

"Great can mean a lot of things. You can be a great disappointment, a great disaster, a great big failure. But good means something, good is the opposite of bad, and good can always get better. ~ Antler Pestle

Have a very good day.
