It Has Been Some Time

My regret of having not posted here since late October. Currently, there are steep hurdles to overcome economically for the basic sustaining living, it has not been easy for me rather the direct opposite. A lot of time is spending in the attempt to jump-start an effective recovery.
That leaves much less time for another writing project. But it is also difficult to engage a new work in awareness the possibility of success in the independent book market, in the publishing industry overall is very dim, hard to see and not clearly evident in forecasting. If I make progress on a book project it will be communicated here.

My Wish to Let Go of It

My expression of gratitude for the support and commendation people have sincerely granted me since I started engaging in book publishing. Also, it has been an honor to finally authored a novel, which basically been a boyhood aspiration, it is not a regret. I wish to officially state my desire and affirmation to withdraw from pursuing a dedicated career as an author. Not speaking and representing any other individuals, writers or publishers, the experience for me, overall in publishing has been unfavorable and costly. In fact, it is at times long-winding embarrassing, stressful, and hurtful in the cold unjust world we are residing. 
As an African-American author, I am often sensing the doors are closed, locked, and sealed long before my arrival. It is tough for me to imagine something lastingly benefitual would come of it. My acknowledgment; supporting oneself and family as an author is realistically difficult requiring more sacrifice than anticipating. If authorship is a noble endeavor, it is unnecessary-unwise anyone should suffer for it. When it gets to that point, it is the course of wisdom to release oneself from it.
I truthfully want to let go of this unhappiness and unrealistic anticipation for success in an unfair, very competitive industry. It is not nearly as un-idealistic, impractical as seeking an acting or professional sporting career but it is as unpromising in my viewpoint. Yes, it's true, I want to give up on it, forsake it respectfully. Such a resolved feeling I honestly feel it isn't due to a lack of courage or willingness to work diligently and efficiently. Such a decision would not dismiss the pleasures of participating in the art of writing. From time to time, I might publish a book whenever time in the future. Nonetheless, it will not be a primary career endeavor and significant pursuit to sustain myself economically by writing and publishing.

How Do You Spell Empathy With Understanding?

Considering the new apparel designed by me with one of my lesser known cartoons from 1990's, the question on the back of garment may hold attention. In answering, some people might switch the word understanding with neighborly love. Empathy is one of the topics swimming under the plot line and characters' interactions in my novel Waiting for Regina. It is another expression not stated but apparently demonstrated by willing and caring individuals. Those actions narrating in the written language may have lasting value in a world growing ever so cold in its genuine regard for the residents dwelling in it.

Would Cory Wear It?

There is the scene in Central Park, Manhattan of Regina, Mispha, and Professor Douglas having a conversation about evolution and creationism in the novel Waiting for Regina. Truthfully, I do not wish to get involve in the on-going messy debate between the science-minding evolution supporters and the religious endorsers of creationism. It appears that matter won't be resolved anytime soon. 
Rather than going in circles with an aimless debate, it is important to seek the truth. Don't you want to know the absolute knowledge of how we came into existance without religious dogma and questionable or unproven science theories? I believe those facts of life are not far from us.
It may be a matter of having humility and honesty to recognize the evidence before our eyes and inside of us. 
A simple and profound example is the human cell, a microscopic bit so advance it is staggering to comprehend. It is a living wonder containing its own control center (nucleus), factory (ribosome), energy facility (mitochondia), storage (cytoplasm), distribution (golgi), courier service (endoplasmic reticulum), and security system (cell membrane). Is there a part of our body that isn't made from cells including hair and nails, all with specified functions?

If we marvel at man's use of technology how can the cell be dismissed without an superme designer behind it? If you consider; the teachings of evolution have not explained how the cell developed and function as it is now in trillions of varieties.
Also, creationists may expect us to believe that something as advanced as a cell simply 'pop' in existance within 24 hours within a week's period with the snap of God's fingers. Here, it is not doubting God's powers are limitless and instantious. When the beauty of the earth are observing in nature, would creation be a considered a rush job?

Professional designers pre-visualize, generate concepts, get the right materials, and estimate a reasonable time frame producing their products. Design involves more than a snap of the fingers to make it happen. 
It is a thought process that might involve potent emotions, for example, hate when weapons of war are concieved and used. 
Or of love, when a mother is sewing a colorful, picture-filled quilt to cover and warm her offspring. 
Isn't it noteworthy the largest organ of our bodies does more than blanket the muscels, tissue, and bones. Our skin also aids to regulate body tempatures and transmits sensory signals to the brain. Skin can also be appealing in an array of colors and shades of the human race.
Please note another example. Many people might attest their ancestors were deformed hairy cave men, women, and children, or horsemen, neanderthals...whatever you have seen in museum glass encased exhibitions, documentary films, and publications. How many individuals embrace the pride that is how their families began, evolving from apes, monkeys, and chimps? The thought of it is offensive to me. 
Although, people today are physically imperfect, yes, how true with all our illnesses, disablities, and limitations in error-plently lives. Still, the human body is a marvel of awesome design! Professor Douglas noted (in chapter 3, Waiting for Regina) the human eye operates supremely above updated optical inventions. One of scores of reasons reflecting how precious life is to us, to be valuing greater than the finest material processions.
Could we have a masterful artisan designer who exercised his time wisely with care and precision to formulate our species? It is impossible to avoid such questioning. That is the inquiry worth investigating.
In the novel, Mispha and Regina's high school science instructor Samantha was sounding unsupportive of the teachings of evolution calling it a "secular religion" where as influencial persons use it to discrimate against their fellow human residents. A little later in the park scene in New York City, Professor Cory questioned the authencity of both creationsim and evolution. Who could doubt Cory and Samantha would become close associates beyond their university days. Would they, however, wear apparel inspired by the discussions in Waiting for Regina? In answer, you may check out the garments at web link below. Two of examples (front and back of attire) are on this page, happy exploration for you in the truth about us.

A Penny Is A Penny…Are You Sure?

A new interview is about my novel Waiting for Regina and personal thoughts about it. In the story, Mispha steadies her nerves to speak the truth even if it reveals her short-comings. Regarding the subject of colorism, I found it necessary to offer an admittance uneasy to express in the interview. You may read about it at this site: Interview with Curtis W. Jackson, the website address is below if the link does not work. I am aware coin collecting could be an enjoyable hobby filled with fascinating history. Could you imagine a penny disliking another penny because it looks dull, untarnished, too dark, too old or young, or too shiny? 

People may conclude, why should a copper colored coin disapprove of another? They are both worth one cent in value. Human beings, each individual, estimate a value higher than a billion copper plated coins. How sad today a man, woman or child disregarding another somebody because he or she is lighter or darker in skin complexion. Both persons are the same homo species in spite of their physical appearances. As we might account, a penny makes more sense than the faulty attitudes of colorism. If an individual finds himself clinging to a worthless-yet popular opinion, what should he do about it before there is resulting damage?

An Adjustment Proven Unnecessary by Time

A chapter in my cartoonist’s memoir The Deserting Caricature Artist drew attention to a possible caricature portrait of Angelina Jolie. I was not sure that the famed actress was the subject of the ink brush drawing. But the portrait conveyed something of her likeness to strengthen my assumption.
It was one of those pictures I drew many years ago in practicing the art and building a portfolio. When the book was published the chapter acknowledged Ms. Jolie's marriage to the actor Brad Pitt. In fact, the chapter is named She Could Be The Wife of Brad. The book was published in early-2016 by CreateSpace.
Then news arrived that the famous couple is ending their marriage later that same year in September 2016. Then the thought rushed through my mind. Should I revise the book for that update? Eventually, I felt it is important to leave it 'as is.' Because the focus of the memoir wasn't about the latest gossip or star-tracking celebrities' current lives.
It is this month billions were taken by surprise hearing reports that Pitt and Jolie were discontinuing their divorce proceedings and reuniting their relationship. It is favorable news from a couple resolving their marital woes. What if Angelina and Brad decide to resume their divorce? Well, that's their personal business with their children. What is vital is the book The Deserting  Caricature Artist communicate respect for wedded unions and not celebrate break ups often highlighting in media.

Fiddling Around

Greetings, uncertain of what to post here for the first day of August, it is my wish to share a new video. There is a portrait of a folk country musician in my  book The Deserting  Caricature Artist. Otherwise the video is not relative of my books, it is is called The J Afternoon Violinst.

The above is a You Tube video, many are aware there are video grapes who are raking in tremendous income and viewership with association with the Web site. Almost a decade ago, I was taking part in that arrangement allowing commercial advertising in the videos and on my video channel. Much of income resulted from how many persons watch the videos and click on the ads. 
Although I have a YouTube channel. I am not involved in the arrangements of earning revenue from the videos. Also, I am not endeavoring to get a high count of viewership, my interest is unexisting in these competitive endeavors. It does not matter to how much or how little other YT video producers are earning. The singular reason of posting the video above is to share it with you.

Update on Dust Cover for Lulu HC

I realized the text on the new dust cover of my novel at was not large enough. I should have noticed earlier because of wearing progressive bifocal lenses. The book cover was adjusted to improve the type. One of the objectives is to have the lettering so noticeable people can see it from a distance if the book is positioning on display at a book shop.

Another Hard Cover Edition of Waiting for Regina

At the Barnes and Noble online store there is a hard-cover edition of Waiting for Regina in addition to the digital e pub and paperback versions of the novel. That attractive, white trimed B&N hard-cover have the cover design printed on it with no dust cover as you may be viewing in the photo on the left with the little black cellphone. It is on sale for $17.69, the price may increase to $19 due to the increased content from the third revision.
Another hard-cover edition was recently produced at Lulu, this is the one that is having the dust cover. It can be purchasing online for $20.79, if you are a member of Lulu you might get a discount. You may be aware Barnes and Noble offer incentives for their annual members. The Lulu dust jacket with inside flips appears as image below. The front cover inside flip is left partially blank for pending store retailers.

App To The Times

Comfortable reading: a section
of a quilt inside Sayville Public
Library by an unknown artistian.
Having both the reading apps of Kindle and Nook Press, I learned recently of another difference between the two. People who purchased either the first or second edition of my novel Waiting for Regina can ask Amazon to update their digital copy to the third edition of the publication without cost. What about the Nook version of my book on the same tablet?
It was surprising for me to discover the Nook app automatically updated the novel to the third edition. I did not have to contact a Barnes and Noble's customer representative by phone or online. Although Amazon's current publishing profits and successes are painfully crushing to the B & N's Nook division, nevertheless, the Nook app have that updating advantage over the Kindle reading app. Is this a feature you favor? You may comment below if you wish, thank you.

Updated Book Covers

A day for savoring the color of sand.

Below are images of the updated book covers of the 5.5 x 8.5-inch Nook Press US trade paperback ($8.89), 5.5" by 8.5" CreateSpace paperback (8.89), and the five and a half by eight and a half inches Nook Press hardcover (19.00 retail).  The contents of the publications are the same as so the black spine 9" x 6" paperback edition ($9.00)at Lulu's online bookstore. 
To note, the book product page on CreateSpace states the "2nd" edition, however, it is actually the 3rd edition of the novel. The correction would issue forth in near time. 
There is new book preview at CreateSpace, which include engrossing conversations between the characters without a book description. I am anticipating you'll be pleased overall of what they say.

The ‘Waiting' Team Returns to iTunes

Mr. and Mrs. Labeau, Kenny, the Andersons, William, Mrs. Hussang, April, and other characters of Waiting for Regina are making an encore at the iTunes store. They are returning after a revision was performed on the 1980's coming of age novel. 

A distant sighting of the 2017 graduating class of Bay Shore High School on Friday, June 23rd. A 1987 graduation ceremony in Waiting for Regina was a major scene of the novel.

As of many other publications listed at the Apple online retailer, there are no reviews of Waiting for Regina. Seems like they don't get them as much as Amazon and Goodreads. You could be the first individual to express your literary evaluation of my book if you wish. 


iTunes offers a free downloadable preview depending if you have the approved Apple device and software. The electronic copies of Waiting for Regina are available at other online stores including Kobo, however, there will be some waiting for the updated printed editions of the novel. There are no reviews yet of my novel at Kobo, the door is opened there also. Please stay tuned.

The Third Edition of Waiting for Regina Released As ePub

The editing and re-editing the novel Waiting for Regina has been completed. However, it is no longer the second edition because there were changes made to avoid any plagiarism, (although it was all unintentional). Also, in honoring the previous reviews of the book, this recent revision excludes every possible grammar and spelling error existing. These were searched out word by word, sentence by sentence, paragraph by paragraph, chapter by chapter. Waiting for Regina is an essential story which should not be tripped up by these faults. 
Some present tense verbs and adverbs were changed to past tense to respect the high standards of American English language. Also, the overall publication was made more concise including the removal of any dangling modifications, incomplete statements, and unnecessary expressions. To add to this, I checked for and subtracted out any politically incorrect statements. For example, the word 'mankind' was exchanged for words as humankind, people, and humanity.  

A bus stop in East Islip, New York
As an enhancement, the vocabulary was increased throughout the publication. Mispha is the narrator; she is known to be a proficient reader who loves books. Of course, she would use some statements uncommon to literary laypersons but are learnable by the public. In the first and second editions, for example, there are scenes when the main character Mispha is looking directly, eye to eye to the person she is addressing. However, since her feelings and relationship toward each vary, she does not look at them the same way while conversing. Whatever it is conscious or sub-conscious, the new edition of the novel reveals such personal distinction with a variation of wording. 
     The updated ePub (ebook) is available now on Barnes and Noble's online store. By Sunday, June 18 the revised Kindle version will be on sale on Amazon. Please feel at ease to read the free book previews online at B&N and Amazon and share the news with others. To help recognize the third edition from the previous one, there is a new chapter in it entitled 'Other Books by the Author.' If you have any questions, please post them here, I will do my best to respond. Currently, there is a limited distribution of the electronic copies of the book with fewer website retailers. The edited print versions are not ready yet; these will by announced shortly.

Free On-Air Classes - Week of 6/11

When she was reviewing my book, 57 Pages: A Short Collection of Thought-Motivating Cartoon, a thoughtless Amazon book critic employed an unfair comparison using the example of her beloved toddler grandson as a better writer and artist than me. Her readers probably figured out that the unnamed youngster has not yet published any articles or books to prove her statements true. She should be forgiven. 57 Pages, the e-book was eventually unpublished on (removed from) Amazon. 

     New independent writers should be prepared for this kind of critical response to their works because, in this case, unethical unprofessionalism might run unchecked and undisciplined in a world that does not guarantee absolute professional fairness toward each individual. One of the important reasons why the book critic could have humbled and corrected herself is that positive activities such as drawing and writing can be upbuilding rather than degrading others. The visual and literary abilities can serve to bond individuals rather than divide them. 
     It is somber when people decide to utilize comparison and prideful tactics against one another or to advance undue favoritism in their societies. In my novel Waiting for Regina, two honor students, Regina and Mispha willingly assisted their lower achieving classmates educationally, despite those girls being minorities in an affluent community.

     Please consider a primary example among the populations who believe God exists and is alive. The fact is all humans benefit from his creations of a life-giving and sustaining earth providing us air to breathe, food and water for nourishment. To add to it, the Bible is the most widely distributed book ever! Very few if any can sensibly debate this literature was prepared and inspired to promote antisocial behaviors among its readers. 

     Not to overlook the marvels of creation (glorious sunsets, phenomenal arranged celestial night skies, awesome waterfalls and peak mountain summits) can be appreciated and enjoyed by any human. A blind, deaf and vocally mute person can feel the cool summer breeze, finger feel the shape of an odd sea shell, and smell his Aunt Bessie's home-baked cinnamon crust apple pie. We can say God is the greatest artist and author in the universe. 
     Yet amazingly, his works serve to benefit not diminish intelligent creatures (people of all sorts). Getting back to the privileges of drawing and writing, my advice is never feeling ashamed or discouraged to practice and share these endeavors with others. Some persons may feel they are beyond hope and can never improve, yet more truthfully any individual (if they wish) can in time grow progressively in their writings and drawings with actual application and diligence. 
     Bear in mind, many might have sensed the need to enhance their communication skills, especially to better provide for themselves economically. Please do not give up hope, particularly if you were targeted by unkind and insincere statements. Also, a person may choose to take advantage of opportunities such as free classes offered by CreativeLive. Besides thinking how challenging it may be to excel in these categories, please ponder what you could gain future wisely as you examine the listing below, I wish you favorable success.

Where Faith Awaits You

In the local cafe, the statement on the unstained wood framed blackboard with pink and blue chalk words reads;

"Don't run from the unknown:
This uncertainty is where faith stems from. Where you are now now may not be your final destination...The journey is a marthon not a sprint though to settle is the opposite.> A new chapter awaits once you try."

The new audiobooks of my publication are among those pleasant unknowns you need not fear to listen to the samples on Audibles. Please click on the links below to hear Judy Rounda's performances.

The Poetic and Dramatic Love Episodes of Ksana-Kai

My brother, Lewis N. Jackson composed three poetic style publications in a series about a couple beginning from their courtship and into their marriage and family life. The writing is beautifully expressed with the environmental and emotional textures of a relationship experiencing the joys and sorrows of modern life. It is recommending you get your taste of this collection. Mr. Jackson introduces you to each volume and invites you to read into chapters in the books' previews. 
In the free reading samples featuring on Amazon, you may begin to get acquainted with the couple known as Ksana-Kai, Kaji and the love of his life, Ksana. I could say more but do not wish to spoil your discovery of this series and Lewis' talent of poetry. Each of the books is in dual languages, English and French. These are the names of the publications also available at the CreateSpace online store, Ksana: A Love Story Told Through Poems, also Psyllie (Ksana-Kai, Volume II), and Finding Isadora (Ksana-Kai, Volume III).

Judy Reads Regina Again! Spanish

It may be proud moment reaching out to an emerging language population in the United States. The Spanish recording of my short story, Regina, ¿Cuál es el Color de Esto? has been released globally on Amazon, iTunes, and Audibles. If you are unfamiliar with the Latin language. Can you still interpret what it means, the title of the 46 minute album, Regina, ¿Cuál es el Color de Esto? In English language, it is known as Regina, What Is The Color of It? Many persons may know it is the short story that inspired the novel Waiting for Regina.

Please visit Audibles, Amazon or elsewhere and listen to a free sample. Please note the recording is in dual language, Spanish and English of the same story. The artist behind the album is an experienced performer having more than a dozen recordings. I feel assured you will be pleased of Judy Rounda's narration in both major tongues. Like the publication the recording is based from, the album is offering an opportunity for individuals to enhance their abilities in communicating in either of both languages. Please share the favorable news. Since the price is not exorbitant, it is reasonable, ¿Cuál es el Color de Esto? may be a worthy purchase or gift, thank you for visiting.

Chapter Two: Another Preview

There is a new preview of the youth drama publication Waiting for Regina for CreateSpace members and visitors. It features the entire chapter two with book cover of the novel.
For the record, it appears most individuals are reluctant to offer their viewpoints on a preview, which is their right and choice without obligation.

Nevertheless, there's is nothing to fear, you can provide your opinions nameless without anyone knowing who you are. And what you share could stick having value, your insight may be meaningful and benefit other writers, readers or visitors. Again, it is not required. Please, however, give it consideration if you feel inclined to express your thoughts.

If my book fare favorably on the market, I might treat myself to one of these desserts. (May it not be a long wait.)

Changing to Before from After

It is highly recommending that if you are publishing a book through varied platforms such as Amazon, Barnes & Noble, CreateSpace, Lulu, Smashwords, and others. The content of the book should be the same on each of those venues, inside and out. 
It makes sense if the publication is priced smiliarly and being offered in different formats, print and digital. Recently, my first novel Waiting for Regina was differenting on that recommendation. The book cover was not exactly the same design among the online retailers. 
It is this week I made sure that the book cover is the same on each of the venues as much possible. The scene strip of the beach at the bottom of the front cover was removed leaving entirely the original cover of the first edition. It is my wish the adjustment will serve in the best interests of the public subtracting any confusion among the retailers.

It Can BE Heard Now

Voice Actress Judy Rounda produced the first audiobook recording of one of my publishing, Regina: What Is The Color of It. Please feel at ease to visit Audibles, Amazon or iTunes and listen to the sample. You may express your thoughts on what you heard if you wish, thank you.

Covering Regina

There is some distinction among the print editions of Waiting for Regina in their book covers. In aiding your understanding, the Barnes and Noble versions have a white border around the cover designs. Please note the printing examples below.

The orange dotted lines are printing measurements, you won't see them on your copy. The other edition, the CreateSpace version do not have white borderlines. The cover design varies a bit, I had to make changes on it because the back cover borderlines were not aligned properly. Eventually, all the covers will be the same designs on both the hardcover and printed editions.

Top and bottom (or second and third) images here are the front and back cover of the CreateSpace editions. Did you note the differences apart from the Barnes and Noble? The hint is the position of the iris of the eye in the watch for the back cover? Please feel free to express your viewpoints of the book covers. Not my wish to confuse you; the interior contents of the 2nd edition of Waiting for Regina are the same in the Barnes and Noble and CreateSpace print versions. From my understanding, all the print copies of the remaining first edition of the novel have sold out. If you wish to purchase the 1st edition it is only in electronic formats on sale at iBooks, Smashwords, and other online retailers.

Waiting for Regina Is Now in Hardcover

There is a pick of three editions of Waiting for Regina. If you look below in the screen shot on the right side of the image of the Barnes and Noble's page of the electronic version of the novel.  You see a distinction of prices. The Nook book is an epub, and it is also the first published 157 paged edition of Waiting for Regina before the recent revision.
There are paperback and hardcover editions of Waiting for Regina, these are the revised versions of 186 pages which include added content to the novel, a table of contents, and short author biography. I left out the additional materials last year to reduce the cost of producing the book.
You can read the entire book for free if you visit a Barnes and Noble bookstore repeatedly. That would be after a customer is downloading the free ebook on a tablet or smartphone. You have to read it in the store. The publication will disappear off your tablet if you return to your car in the parking lot. There are also digital formats of the first edition book on sale at Smashwords including Apple iBook.

Please Stay Tuned


It has been while since I posted anything here. I have been busy with projects and college amid other obligations.

Currently, the print version of Waiting for Regina is not available. My hope it will be back on sale as soon as possible or by April 7th. The manuscript of Regina must undergo corrections and adjustments.

The processing for printing requires time. The digital edition of the novel is available at iBooks, Smashwords, Kobo, and elsewhere. Please stay tuned.
