What, No Music?
I am still forgoing the background music because of ethical problems with YouTube.
Just this morning, I read that YouTube (a Google company) got fined for lying about collecting information from child viewers so they could make a fortune with targeted ads.
A few weeks ago, I learned that the way their algorithm works is to suggest whatsoever is most likely to keep folks watching, which of course means the most sensational, which is commonly the most extreme or inflammatory.
I need to find a better way to search good music.
And let's all vote for candidates who will bring down monopolies and prevent new ones from rising.
The Happy News Is:
Yesterday I celebrated my birthday and the ebook release of Supermen, the first of a five-book series that will come to define the era we boomers barely survived.
All about childhood, baseball, and crazy people, the story includes a road trip to the Little League World Series, an eight-year-old girl lost in New Orleans, the Hully Gully, and lots of suspense and mystery.
Please get it right now so you won't forget. It's only 99 cents, but if that's too expensive, email me and I will send a code.
The Best Birthday Ever
My daughter Darcy called from Arizona and gave me news that would be hard to beat. She reported that she had recently started with The Biggest Liar in Los Angeles, Book One of my Hickey family crime series, and couldn't stop reading except for absolute necessities until she had finished Book Ten, The Answer to Everything, and every single book in between.
And this is the person who in high school used to resist great books like Lord of the Flies and Fahrenheit 451. I sure do love that girl.
Should you decide to follow Darcy's example and are an ebook reader, don't despair if you can't locate the Hickey ebooks. They are caught in a limbo between publishers but will be out in new editions before long. Paper copies are widely available. If you need help finding the best deals on new or used copies, let me know.
