"If you view change as a problem rather than an opportunity you'll always be too late. Visionaries and crackpots are always too soon and pay a high price for their insight.
We can accept that." ~ Allan R. Wallace

Smashwords Interview

What is the greatest joy of writing for you?
Everyone likes using an appropriate phrase to delineate a thought, occasionally I have a good one. I love it when exactly the right word appears or a perfect phrase comes together. It is like art found in an unlikely place. Sometimes others appreciate that joy of a well framed thought and quote what I've said. Heck, sometimes they even give me credit. That is also a pleasure.

"Our massively interconnected yet fiercely independent future will favor prepared (your responsibility) and adaptive (your opportunity) minds." - Allan R. Wallace

That one makes me think first of this emerging indie book marketplace, whence unto the freedoms to be acquired through robust, proof-of-work, decentralisation technologies like Bitcoin and litecoin -- and then cautiously have inexpensive or free apps like the Lightning Network layered up upon them.

There is so much more developing. Prepare for the shocks of constant iteration. Keep moving. From this point on you may want to emphasise growing your know-how over studying the contents of hesitantly evolving. special interest driven, proclaimed-what. Prepare yourself for futures where self realised wisdom and demonstrated action are more greatly rewarded than mere credentials.

"We are surrounded by easily perceived barriers that limit our achievement. Most such walls were erected using substantial appearing mists of ignorance. We need to discover and acknowledge these boundaries, and then run through them." - Allan Wallace

Have you at a distance seen a friend but as the person gets closer you realize there is small resemblance?
True deep knowedge in almost all fields contradicts the simplistic lies fed to the easily led
Try to discover where reality hides and move towards its enlivening challenges. Why not be your best?

"Public education is designed to breed layers, fryers, and broilers. You and yours are song birds capable of flight, while a deranged curriculum traps like a small cage. No singing is allowed except when required."
Allan Wallace

'Citizen' has become the punchline of officialdom’s inside jokes. Behind closed doors they are laughing at you, then they come out and pretend to care. A country's malevolent control of it's citizen-slaves reveals a core insecurity of authority losing power, individuals awakening. Unless the bureaucrat servicing industries of maths and science are your calling, you're screwed.
Therefore: Vote with your wings.
Ascend and flee to where your humanity is more respected. Do not let what you were taught or what you worry others may think determine your altitude. Celebrate your heart's desires with spontaneous song.
fly too high
for too long

"Did Adam have a belly button?"
Allan R. Wallace in Freedom And Responsibility

As a creative what happens before you craft your awakening book, script that emotion rousing movie, or code an immersive simulation?
Could the crafting of universes and dimensions have been like preparing to write? A back story is both the history and the mind of a story to be told. It can be discovered in what will be written. Did an author ("Mathematics is the language with which God has written the universe." Galileo Galilei) have implicit as well as explicit back-story woven into our layered worlds prior to creation's first chapter? Show don't tell motivations.

"First: free your own self."
me to me

Live ahead not behind,
crafting not replicating,
choose adventure rather than to be sure,
for much of life's joy is found in surprises
overtake us as we dare.
What motivated you to become an indie author?
I sought longevity and reach for written words.

Our renewing world has already changed us. It is not different this time, it is merely another painful, monumental climb up improvements. Once again governance will be reworked. More so than spouses, governments can be abusive: It's not your fault. You are valuable. Don't stay.

We live in a world with almost seven billion disregarded cultures, each unique and important. You are important.

History is relevant. Our world is changing; combining the power, sweep, destruction, and renewal from discoveries of the metal age, through the invention of the printing press, and within the still spreading industrial revolution. We have a messy history. We are stumbling along in a criminally darkened present.

Centralized too-big institutions are melting ice creams
their rate of decay is relative
all dripping slowly at first
then finally dispersing into a fine mess

Bitcoiners are this emerging era's base layer.
Bitcoin properly protected is the apex tool for family financial protection.

We are the individualist renaissance
Together you, I, and God can influence everything
We create beauty
We thrive within personal choices
Find your best and live/share it
Faith is an act.
Stay brave
Keep hope

Now faith is the substance of things hoped for, the evidence of things not seen. Hebrews 11.1

Decades ago I was asked by a publisher to write a non-fiction book on subjects I covered in my public speaking. Once the outline and some content was done I began the process for submission, then immediately stopped. The contracts and loss of expressive freedom were too oppressive.

Years later I volunteered as a beta tester for a new web-based writing platform. I found people enjoyed what I had written, and many asked for more. A few of the over one hundred entries I wrote did very well. They reached hundreds of thousands of readers, and received thousands of comments and likes. Out of millions of such pages on that site, mine about coercion-based education being inappropriate for our futures was a top ten lens for years. Many of my views have since become conventional.

I slowed crafting new articles there when interruptive advertising became pervasive and stopped when they removed some of my best work without telling me why. That site sold to another where I am allowing my few, remaining, modified pages to languish then disappear. In contrast, thanks to Smashwords and other international publishers, my books listed below will remain available unless I modify or remove them. How long will the Internet last? (read Hacker School Trilogy for a chilling prospect) Expect my short stories, novels, and non-fiction to be available even longer.

Before I stopped writing articles I began writing fiction to salve an itching desire to entertain and satisfy story lovers. I created an online book proposal for a novel about pursued hacker warriors. That book is called Complicit Simplicity based on the following observation, "Human Rights bless all through their complicit simplicity, by placing people above unjust law." - Allan R. Wallace

Complicit Simplicity = Humans > unjust rule of law

First came an exploratory chapter. Then I wanted to write another chapter, and another. We (those creative characters and myself) knew a surprise awaited us at novel's end. Those hackster heroes needed to tell their full story.

When that draft was finished I wrote a prequel (Hacktivist) and then a sequel (Abacus Brief). These stories are not a direct sequence but like Isaac Asimov's Robot stories drifted into the spread of his Foundation novels they are speculative points of one possible future. Those online manuscripts morphed into the trilogy < > once rewritten and formatted for distribution. That adventurous trilogy is a progression from the attacks on single hackers and whistle-blowers we have witnessed; to protean, proactive teams like Anonymous could become; to leaderless movements that will sustain gains while facing violent opposition. readers did raise questions. Some answers can be found in three soft-apocalypse short stories, The Hacker School Trilogy, which can be downloaded here on Smashwords at no charge.

Other works followed, but like most of my life I started climbing a ladder before I knew against which wall it leaned. On Smashwords' ladder I discovered the wall was around previously hidden gardens just blossoming into independent writing. Exploring, I found open portals beckoning. Life, she is good!

    Just what the description said, short and sweet. Use this as an early guide and learn more as you make things happen. *enjoy*
  • Veegal's Wall on March 09, 2011
    (no rating)
    I'm about a third of the way through and enjoying the read. Logical progression and a believable story arc help. Some pleasant surprises await.
  • Veegal's Wall on March 13, 2011

    This is a rousing good tale. Now, if we just were around a campfire as this storyteller enthralls . . .
  • Be the Monkey - Ebooks and Self-Publishing: A Dialog Between Authors Barry Eisler and Joe Konrath on March 19, 2011

    Dynamite! As if erosion had not done enough damage to that Dam old publishing model, these renegades blow it up and release a flood. I've a new title for this e-book, "Tears of New York."
  • How I Sold 1 Million eBooks in 5 Months on July 12, 2011

    For self-published authors or published writers without significant sales this book is a great bargain.
  • Meet a Jerk, Get to Work, How to Write Villains and the Occasional Hero on Oct. 21, 2011

    Nicely done. I like the admission on lack of time spent building a plot arc and instead planning a murder. A good murder just makes you smile. In fiction of course.
  • Initial Profit on Sep. 12, 2013

    Very short. Very entertaining. A good intro to whatever comes next.
  • Last Cigarette on Sep. 14, 2013

    Entertaining. Nicely done.
  • Thieves Emporium on Sep. 29, 2013

    A cross between "The Stainless Steel Rat" and late 1990's internet sites of Dodge and LF City. Plausable. Tech first favors those that can afford it in size (gov and corp), and later favors individuals who embrace it. The time is coming. I'm just a few chapters in, but so far the story is well done.
  • Aeternum on Oct. 19, 2013

    An excellent introduction. I've just entered a new world beside new heroes. Awesome.
