People, in general, like to remember the way things used to be. Sometimes we may focus on how an injustice was perpetrated at one point in history. It wasn't too long ago that women did not have the right to vote. And we all know how African Americans were considered three fifths a person. World War 2 allowed for Japanese internment camps and the near genocide of the Jewish people. History records great battles such as the mighty three hundred Spartans who fought against the Persian army. Christians around the world listen avidly to the narrative of David and Goliath. The annuals of time are great fodder for stories. They take us back to either simpler or more violent time in human history. Wars, famine, oppression, social justice, equality, and many other events in history are woven into the fabric of our lives and we're all affected by it. The events of yesterday often affect the events of today and the future. As writers, we have a fantastic opportunity to use history to weave yarns of intrigue, passion, mystery, and so much more.

Whether you are a traditionally represented author or an indie, if you've written your first book or tenth, you need to know that your writing career is a business, not a hobby. The current publishing industry is in a state of flux as traditional publishing houses compete with small presses and independent authors. Everyone who has written a book wants to get it in front of potential readers faces. They also want sales. However, a lot of authors, are introverted people. They prefer to publish their book by whatever means and then let the book float into readers' hands. Yet, there is more to the writer's career than wishful thinking. When does a writer's career begin? What some steps to set up a business? What about privacy? Marketing? These and many other questions we plan to address. Join me as I chat with Linda F Beed, author and teacher, as we discuss the business side of the writing. You can join me at 646-595-2083, press 1 to be live on air.

Maria Montenez-Colon, of Punta Gorda, Fla., was arrested Friday night for misuse of 911 after she allegedly asked a responding officer for sex because she had not been 'penetrated in years.'
A Florida woman who described herself as "horny" allegedly summoned a cop to her home and tried to have sex with him - pleading "I haven't been penetrated in years!"
Maria Montenez-Colon, 58, was arrested Friday night in the misuse of 911.
The officer drove to her home in Punta Gorda after she reportedly told a dispatcher that she wanted her late husband's Corvette back after giving it to her son, authorities said.
But it appears she really wanted to satisfy her lust for lawmen.
The cop says Montenez-Colon was drunk when he arrived and immediately started making sexually suggestive comments such as "You are so sexy" and "Are you married?"
But she saved the most lascivious for when he asked how he could help her.
"You can f--k me," she said, according to an arrest report obtained by "The Smoking Gun".
"He was a perfect gentleman, but when I asked him to f--k me, he turned me down so that made me angry."
The first officer asked if Montenez-Colon remembered their conversation about not using 911 in non-emergency circumstances.
"I do," she allegedly said, "but how else am I going to get you to f--k me?"
Montenez-Colon was arrested, handcuffed and booked into Charlotte County Jail.

The Phoenix woman accused of shoving a vibrator into her 2-year-old son's anus has pleaded not guilty to charges in the case. The vibrator had to be surgically removed.
Rickesha Burns, 21, called police almost two weeks ago, reporting that her son was bleeding from his anus but said she didn't know exactly what happened.
She said she was at a park with her son that day, March 24, and while she was "looking at a text message for about 10 seconds," a boy she didn't know at the park did "something" to her son, according to court documents obtained by New Times.
"She said she does not know what he did but is sure he did something," a probable-cause statement says.
The boy was brought to Phoenix Children's Hospital, and doctors discovered that he had numerous bruises around his anus, a "hanger-type" bruise on his hip, and yet another bruise on his neck.
Doctors also found an object lodged in his rectum, which appears to be "a vibrator or some other sex toy."
Police interviewed Burns, who still claimed that a teenage boy at a park did it, even though she "believes it is her vibrator," and police found the boy's blood on her shirt, according to court documents.
A Phoenix police spokesman said there was zero evidence that the boy was assaulted at the park.
Burns told police that she "worked hard to get her son back and would not do anything like this to hurt her son."
Indeed, court records show that Burns was investigated for child abuse in 2011, but it doesn't appear that criminal charges were ever filed. State records don't show any criminal history for Burns, other than a couple of misdemeanor cases related to driving without the proper documentation.
Burns' son needed to have surgery to get the vibrator removed, according to court documents. Police said the injuries around the boy's anus appear to be caused by a hanger, or similar object, being used in an attempt to get the vibrator out.
At her arraignment today, Burns pleaded not guilty to the charges against her, including sexual conduct with a minor and child abuse. A judge had previously ordered that Burns be held without bond.
Her next court date is scheduled for May 23.

Sunday will be the most joyous occasion in all of Christianity. We're not talking just a little bit a joy but a whole planet full of rejoicers who celebrate that our God is not dead. HE IS ALIVE! Skeptics however tend to want to downplay this by trying to show discrepancies in the gospels. Of course, if there are discrepancies then we would have a problem. Numerous Christian scholars, pastors, teachers, and others have done well to address this problem and today it won't be any different. Join me as I sit down and chat with Biblical scholar and teacher Josh Peck, as we discuss his harmonization of the Gospel story as told in Matthew, Mark, Luke, and John.
