Signings and Signs!

Book signing and signs in general

I was having a terrible day. People don't want to buy a book about troubled teens, because it insinuates that their kids are bad. From the reaction my book comes in a brown paper wrapper. My book is to open dialogues with teens. If you are saying, “YEEEEW! Talk to my kids?” then shame on you!!

As you know the schools thought it was a pointless book and the churches and parents that I approached around here said that their kids didn't even cuss (superkids from the planet denial... able to leap into bad life choices in a single-bound!) and promoting this kind of book seemed so over-complicated and pointless.

People love the raffles I throw and will compete for the book, but won't buy. The winnings take double offset the price of the book I raffled off. The little boy who won the last raffle was almost in tears of joy and jumped around excitedly. But he's much too small for it to be helpful right now.

Sarah's hair, that took hours to put up and the costume she had on... basically exploded as well. Boy, I was fit to be tied. How do you change a world that doesn't want to be changed. I was so angry. Until a sign...

My Medicine Man, God rest him, helped me edit that book. It was our pet project for years. I was kinda wishing he was there. I looked up from placing my give-aways on the table and... there stand's Bear's doppleganger! This man had the same face, beard, glasses, hat, shirt, cane. My mouth dropped open.

He said, “Whataya raisin money for?” I explained that since my literacy drive was sort of a bust we were just selling books.

Today while sitting at a red light we were approached by a person asking for a donation for a halfway house to help kids addicted to drugs etc get their degrees. It all came from nowhere and the sign... had it been a traffic sign... would have been very simple. It'd have said, “Go!”

That's my side of it,

Intro to Snapshots

Welcome to life under the street light....
Let me introduce myself. My name is Micah. My name is Micheal if you prefer. You pass me on the street every day but you don't notice me, unless you're doing something you shouldn't be. I am the teen hooker, the drug-dealer in the schoolyard of the elementary school. I am the Anorexic and the unfulfilled suicide attempt. I am the sinner and the saint... collective sides of the same coin.
Yeah that's me. I am the one smoking crack in the alley or committing hate crimes.
You don't see me... not really. Your problem isn't your vision. Your problem is that you see me as someone else's kid. Maybe I am nobody's kid. The real problem here is that maybe I am everybody's kid. Maybe I am your kid. You still can't see me....You can't see me because you can't hear me.
As I said I am everybody's kid. I am the honor student graduating at the head of the class. I am the all-star football, best bet for college. I am that kid. I am the kid who is trying to get an Olympic gold medal! Mostly I am the kid who is trying to get you to listen. Are you deaf?
I am the future of this country. I am every kid, not just some faceless statistic from a bad neighborhood or a broken home. I am your future. I am the tomorrows of the whole wide world. If you listen, you'll hear me. But then again if you don't.... well then you won't see me. Even if you try I'll be invisible to you.

I am every problem you can think of, but I am every solution too. I'll be the one who cures cancer. I'll be the one who drives your kid's bus to school every day. I'll be the one living in such excess from my last movie, from my last book, from my last neurology lecture, from my last whatever. You get the picture yet? I'll be the next door neighbor in your perfect suburban world. I'll be there. Will you see me then I wonder? As I said you can't see me because you won't listen. But that doesn't really worry me. Because like they say in the books.... everyone has a halo under the street light.

Hatter Link



Hi guys! Been gone for a bit... sorry. My wonderful, handsome husband bought me a new PC, They gave us all sorts of software for a free year. Problem came when we found out there was already software installed that wasn't compatible with what's in the box. LOL, So I've wasted a lot of time trying one then the other to see which one I am most compatible with. I only today mastered where to type a real doc. Like this one. Lol

It's very confusing to me when they change formats and symbols and such. BUT this is new it should at least last the fifteen years it will take me to learn how to use it before it becomes obselete.

In big news, of course a book signing Sunday. In even bigger news, I signed a book contract on a drama. In the very biggest news I just finished manuscript 2 of the series and am preparing to start on 4 in a couple of weeks!!!!

Nothing in this world can keep your mind off a disability then the ability to accomplish and stay busy!!!

Also I've started a facebook page for my new pen name Hatter to post on. Check it out!


That's my side of it!

Absence excuses and Easter baskets!!!

Dear readers of my child's blog,

Please excuse Angel Dunworth from blogging this week as her husband got her the most beautiful Easter basket gift... a gorgeous, brand new PC! Most of her week will be spent installing the latest softwares and trying to transfer her novels and artwork from one to the next. She will also be preparing for next weekend's book signing at Half-price on Bandera, so boogie on over and see her.

Try not to miss her too much. Remember if she were here she'd just be asking you mindless questions like:

If Jesus was a Jew then why on Easter do we serve absolutely the least kosher meat we can find?

That's my side of it,
Angel posing as her mom

Happy Easter

Hey guys Easter is upon us. And of course Passover. So let me wish everyone a holiday filled with miracles and love.

My husband took me pretty far today to a nice very out of the way restaurant and we had a lovely day and an amazing dinner. Tomorrow we're going to go looking for a new PC as mine is now obsolete so more than likely I won't feel up to blogging. I'll meet you all here after Easter keep safe and don't take to many of the bunny's eggs away. You know how sensitive they are!

That's my side of it,

Let's meet

my new schedule, click below


I'd be honored to meet you! Always have lots of great give-aways too! kisses

Diary excerpt

Hey dudes, I have no idea what's wrong with me. I've slept almost continuously for 48 hours... and still feel tired, achy. Grrr! A special thanks to Rival for taking over yesterday or I'd have had no blog at all. At any rate his book sounds exciting and I'm going to let him talk a little more about it here and there as we go along.

But for today I was thinking you might like a short excerpt from the next book I just signed a contract for. It is unedited and also for women, not teens and so the language is much more.... offensive. However we'll give it a go:

Diaries of the Cheshire Girls

By Hatter

If you're looking for a happy, light-hearted story then get out while you can. If romantic comedy's your thing or say flowery, poetic garbage like that, just go back to that epic misconception of how the real world works and leave me alone. If you like trite inspirational and meaningless stuff like that don't read any further. If angry is your thing then you've come to the right place. The thing you need to know right now is that this story... my story... the story of Chelsea O'Hara starts in death.

If all you envision in your tiny, little life is entrance to the Gates of Heaven, then I'd suggest you run like hell. My life, my inner ME, my gentle disposition was spawned in a gutter and I will not be moved. So if you're one of those do-gooder's that's lookin' to save a soul then let me save you a little time. In my world Wonderland comes in the form of a drug-induced coma. I'll never reach the light.... but then I'm not looking to. Just a nicer gutter and a better fix. If that's not available... a crappier gutter and a mediocre fix'll do. Whatever it takes right?

Because just like all of you mamby-pamby wanna-bes out there, I'd do anything for my God. The difference is my God is real. You can touch my God... you can snort him, smoke him, swallow him, inhale him, inject him or drink him.... whatever you're into really. It takes all kinds right? In my church we never turn anyone away... but like any temple the problems start with the money-changers. Isn't it always the way?

And suddenly I see...

All of these people are swarming around me. I don't know them. I'm not certain what's going on but I can't feel my legs which tickles in a way. My arm hurts real bad. They are trying to put an oxygen mask on me but I am fighting them tooth and nail. They wanna take away my high. They wanna take away my low. They wanna take away my numb... my perfect numb so screw them. I feel this unbearable buzz in the back of my skull and I start to flail and writhe... some kind of seizure maybe. Please give me more. Please give me heaven.... the heaven of numb.

Flat line.

That's my side of it,

Interview With Rival Gates (guest blogger)

Rival Gates Author Interview

1. Greetings, can you tell us a little bit about your history and how your work has evolved up to this point?

I was raised as the son of a teacher and an editor. Being a writer was something I aspired to since childhood. At the age of 13 I started work on “The Sapphire Chronicles” as a way to do something positive during a difficult time in my life. The first draft of “Quest for the Red Sapphire”, Book 1 was hand written on binder paper. As I advanced through school and life I read many great authors and learned a good deal about writing. It took over thirty years of working on and off but I finally published my work.

2. What genre, or genres, do you write?

I write Fantasy. More specifically, I write Epic Fantasy.

3.  What is your latest book called and what is it about?

My new book is called “The Sapphire Crucible”. It is the second installment of “The Sapphire Chronicles”. It is the continuing tale of former general Linvin Grithinshield leading his uncle and cousins on a quest to find the mythical Red Sapphire before their evil enemies find the stone. He must overcome unprecedented odds and fight for his life in a world of death and destruction. Linvin has to find the gem first and escape with his family alive.

4. What was the inspiration for your book?

I drew inspiration from the work of Tolkien and C.S. Lewis. I was also an avid Dungeons and Dragons player as a teen. It helped me expand my thoughts and think in medieval terms. Creating dungeons of my own helped hone my skills as a writer.

5. Where can we buy your books?

You can find them at Amazon.com

6. What can we expect from you in the future?

With “The Sapphire Crucible” just coming out I will be busy for some time with the promotion of the book. The third installment in the series will be called, “Mandrean Revenge.”

7. Among your own books, have you a favorite book?  Favorite hero or heroine?

The Sapphire Crucible” is my favorite of my books. It is intense and yet thought provoking. As much as I love the main character, Linvin Grithinshield, I have a soft spot for Bander Greenlith. He is a simple elf who cares more about food than wealth. Bander will never blow you away with his intelligence but he is able to see through all the complications people create in order to see the simple truth in a situation. He is fearless and loyal to a fault. My favorite heroine is easily Miri. Here is a beautiful princess who acts nothing like one. She is strong willed, smart and a good fighter when called upon. She is really going to surprise some people who think they have the book figured out early.

8. Do you plot ahead of time, or do you let the plot emerge as you write?

I definitely plot ahead of time. I want my story to flow together in a logical sequence. That takes planning. When I just sit down and write without much of a plan I find there are important elements left out of the story. Then I have to go back and find a way to squeeze it into the story. In the end I am never satisfied. Preparation is the key to a good story for me.

9. Who are some of your favorite authors to read? Favorite books?

Aside from the authors mentioned previously, I have enjoyed the work of David Eddings, Arthur C. Clarke and Isaac Asimov

10. What would be your ultimate goal as a writer?

As a writer I want to touch as many lives as possible. Just as I was inspired to use my own voice, I hope to influence others to tell their own stories. That would be a great accomplishment.

Sick all day. Massive shopping tomorrow! JOY! Will tell you what I bought maybe! Kisses all,

Sunday, April 13, 2014

My books are in the mall. Check the website for the address. I can't get it to post here.

Saturday, April 12, 2014


I've been working on a third book for a few days. I can't seem to get it the way I want it though... sigh.
I have some awesome news tonight though. My book signing on Bandera at Half-Price? I went today to drop off the fliers (as they post fliers, posters or whatever you want for ads.) And then later the manager called.

 I just have to give a huge shout out to Half-Price. They don't even take fees from your sales. Most places do. In addition, they are putting out my table, chair and placing me in the very front of the store at their busiest time of day. WAIT, there's more. They are going to raffle off an autographed copy as a promo! Jumping up and down!!!! I feel so very honored!

My book should be available in the store Cool and Eclectic tomorrow at Rolling Oaks Mall as well. So all in all what an awesome day!

Plus the hubby took me to a romantic dinner which never hurts the mood!

 Listen guys Rival Gates will be guest blogging for me in the near future! His new book Sapphire Crucible is out... today or tomorrow I believe. I'm sure it's on Smashwords... because... well honestly everything is there and Amazon. I'll find out where else you can get it and post it before his blog visit. Thanks Rival! YOU ROCK!

That's my side of it,

NEW contract?

Hey dudes! Huge news! I just signed a second book contract. I'll be writing under a pen name... Hatter and it's women's drama … completely NOT for teens! That's why I chose a pen name and signed with my publishing house rather than go with Erin Go Bragh with this one. The thought of a bookstore placing my book for teens next to something written about graphic drug use... and I do mean graphic... I think that's the worst idea ever!

So yes the topics are for women and not something I see really appealing to teens. Now before you get all excited and say, “Self, I loved her last book. Next week I'm gonna buy the next one.” Let me just say good luck with that. A book can take anywhere from a couple of months to a year before it's released. So let's don't get excited yet.

Also Crimson Cloak is going to have a contest for writers and illustrators wherein you can win the chance at a contract. I'll post that here when it's all ready.

Now Erin go Bragh has got me some book signing gigs, but I have to say I am hitting walls with places I thought would be great ideas for signings. I'll have to work on that. But the one's that are scheduled are posted on my website www.streetlighthalo.com so keep up to date by checking in here and there.

In other Erin Go Bragh news, I believe pretty soon there are going to be a new line of childrens books coming out. The Hamilton Troll series is awesome. I think you'll like the next ones too. I will keep you posted on that!

That's my side of it,

PS. I will be busy putting stuff together for a large consignment so no blog tomorrow. Kisses

Thursday, April 10, 2014


Possible other super big surprise for you later so stay tuned. Right now I'm sick. Maybe check tomorrow. Today is trying to find a doctor that will help me get the rest of my meds. Kisses dudes!

Writer Blog.... Silly!!!

The writer's guide to being published.
Attention: Follow all instructions to the letter.

1. Come up with half an idea that might make a nice book.
2. Type up your story.
3. Answer the phone when Mom calls and even though she's interrupting, … be nice.
4. Go through all the grammar books you just bought. Open one and realize you flunked this crap for a reason.
5. Take a migraine pill. It'll save time.

1. Reread the crap that your auto-correct made up as you went along.
2. Slap yourself repeatedly as you realize that the auto-correct's novel was far more interesting a story than yours was.
3. Go back and try to fix everything the auto-correct changed.
4. Reread and see that everything you changed the auto-correct changed back.
5. When Mom calls ignore the phone. It's preferable to cussing out Mom.
6. Reread with corrections and realize the auto-correct has entirely changed the meaning into something so avaunt-guard and prolific that you could never write that well.
7. Cuss under your breathe safe in the knowledge that your PC is in fact mocking you.
8. Bang your head against the wall repeatedly and with deliberate movements.

1. Spend hours researching the correct publishing houses.
2 Spend long weeks polishing your query letter to perfection and mailing them lovingly off with a SASE.
3. When Mom calls answer the phone and thank her for the beautiful, scenic calender she sent to you so that you can lovingly mark each week that you await a response from publishers.
4. Mark the weeks that you are wasting waiting for the mailman every day like a prisoner on crack... Notice how the smug bastard always has that smirk.
5. Receive and excitedly open your first response. Laugh lightly to yourself as you view your first rejection slip.
6. Promise yourself that you will not take it personally, and promise Mom that you will frame it so that she can hang it in the Smithsonian when you collect your first Pulitzer.
7. Return to waiting by the mailbox. Become aggravated when the mailman is late and notice that Mom calls at the same time every day.
8. Collect all your rejection slips and realize that Mom and the mailman are plotting and obviously have been for some time.
. 9. Collect all bundles of rejection sheets and tie them together with a string.
10. Place them in the region of your hair and set them on fire.
11. Run around in circles screaming obscenities. Obviously the publishing houses are in on it too!

Signing and royalties
1. Read and sign your contract.
2. Proudly call Mom and beg forgiveness.
3. Over-spend on something nice for Mom safe in the knowledge that the royalties check will offset the expense.
4. Buy a tweed jacket with leather patches on the elbows. Purchase a turtle-neck and pipe.
5. Sit down and breath in all the glory.
6. When you get your royalties check realize that $2 will not cover the expensive gourmet coffee-maker you bought Mom.
7. Call and humbly ask for the coffee-maker back.
8. As you hang up the phone convince yourself that Mom didn't need the coffee-maker.
9. Tell yourself every day that Mom never drank coffee in the first place.

Book promoting:
1. If you're still here you might want to look into a medically necessary lobotomy.

That's my side of it,

Brothers and Mindsets

Brothers and Mindsets

A very long time ago I had posted something of great importance to me at the time and one of my brothers cracked a joke that was in poor taste. He meant no harm but as usual I took it personally. I called my sponsor to complain about the entire lack of compassion, the hatred, the self-centeredness of my brother. I was shocked to hear that my problem was me.

In AA we say, “The quickest road to a resentment is an expectation.” What does that mean really? It is as Einstein said, “Everyone is a genius, but if you judge a fish on it's ability to climb a tree, it will live its whole life believing it is stupid.”

The self-centered one in the argument was me. I set an expectation of a certain behavior I felt was acceptable and when my brother didn't live up to the invisible ruler (that he, by the way, was unaware of) I got angry and rude. I decided that he was obligated to live up to my code of honor... not his.

So tell me, who am I that I am so important that I should police the thoughts and senses of others?

It would be no different than if I said, “Well if you just do everything MY way I can fix your whole life, NEVER MIND that mine is in shambles.” So basically once I stirred the shit-pot I got angry because I had to lick the spoon. Very unfair and childish actually.

As an alcoholic the only mind-set I can really exercise that will be beneficial to all is acceptance. I am here to tell you that being an alcoholic dictates that this is absolutely the least likely thing I will practice. That is because it is the hardest and it takes work... not work on my brother's flaws... work on mine.

For example, I can get very angry at my disease. I can scream, yell, bite, kick and yes, even drink over it. Will any of that make my spine whole? No. Neither will my getting upset over a joke of my brother's make him behave using any other personality than his own. And in truth, why should he?

So now, many years later, I am here to say that I must accept that fish will act like fish, birds will act like birds and cats will act like cats. This all seems very simple to the rest of the world, but it has taken me years to try to learn and I haven't tackled it yet. The thing I did finally come to understand is that trying to fix everyone else is just a distraction from all the work I have to do on myself. So I guess I'll live my life now and do my very best to accept that other people are perfectly capable of living their own lives without my judgment and interference.

That's my side of it,

BIG news

Ok hey guys. I have some awesome news for you....kind of a bucket list thing, but also to leave something for my daughter if I do indeed find that lovely state of catatonia.

I am launching (insert drum roll here) a new publishing house of my own. (Partly my own because basically I know nothing about how to do this. Lol) I did pick the name and design the logo. Our name will be Crimson Cloak Publishing (It's the name of a painting I did, if you're curious.) Our website isn't launched yet and our FB page is basically blank for now, but any author can submit anything... because we have an e-zine that my lovely daughter will be apprenticing on.

A HEADS UP.... if you are indeed a friend and or relative you can still submit but you have to go through the same process as everyone else.... just like me. That means... submission director.... if he likes it.... editor.... if she likes it.... editor in chief.... if she likes it.... you'll get a contract. There will be no playing favorites. I personally don't care for the after-taste.

I have submitted something new.... that's right! I wrote something else. We'll see. In the meantime, I am still promoting my book for teens, Snapshots From Home and I will be doing signings as I can. Check www.streetlighthalo.com for dates and locations! I have no interest in leaving Erin Go Bragh, they have been kind and fair so my present book is still with them.
Nothing but love for ya!

That's my side of it,

Another Silly ad

It's time for another installment of
The Most Interesting Author in the World:

Camera pans over a shot of Author Angel Dunworth using a table lamp to create morse code
Voice over: Her instant messaging travels at the speed of light... sort of.

Author's voice: I don't always proof read...
but when I do it's weeks after I hit “send.”

Camera closes in on a shot of Angel Dunworth, smacking a sleeping werewolf on the nose with a rolled-up newspaper and screaming as she flees.

Voice over: She has great amounts of animal attraction... kinda.

Author's voice: I don't always go cow-tipping...
but when I do it's with rabid sharks

Camera pans in on a shot of Angel Dunworth dressed as a clown, walking into a snare and being mistaken for a pinyata.

Voice over: Children love her.. in a way? Um.... ??? Really? Um...

Author's voice: I don't always wear camouflage...
But when I do I wear color coordinated antlers!

Camera pans in on a shot of author Angel Dunworth with a fruit-basket on her head, a carrot woven into her fake dreds, wearing a save the whales t-shirt over a tutu and singing, “I feel pretty.”

Voice over: She? Um? No man... I got nothing! Get my agent on the phone please!

Author's voice: I don't always take my meds.....
but when I do my commercial writing is AWESOME! Stay questionable my friends!

Excerpt from a letter from schools

I shared your resource with our STAN Counselors at our March meeting. They do not think they would use this resource. The reason they gave surprised me. They said that the students would not want to read about someone else because they have their own “stories” to tell and deal with.  FYI, students at our most inner city high school had a similar reaction to a speaker – a triple amputee – who spoke to them. They are dealing with issues that are much more important and immediate to them. It seems empathy is an area we need to look into.
