Oh my Japan personal


Recieving such a big boost to people wanting to share just how wrong it is to discriminate I wanted to share some personal thoughts. While the story of Ariana Miyamoto :

(宮本 エリアナ 磨美子, Miyamoto Eriana Mamiko, born 12 May 1994 in Sasebo, Nagasaki) is a Japanese beauty pageant titleholder who was crowned Miss Japan 2015. 

And Hakuho Sho the sumo wrestler that will never be considered champion got me thinking seriously. So why am I repeating myself, well there is a simple and solid reason for it. What I want to say is hard to talk about just as any  trauma is. I am not a stranger to racism in Japan or in the USA.

In the USA I had a math teacher who used to say that I was born in the gutter and that is as far as I will ever go. A sadistic man who clearly thought that Mexicans did not deserve a spot in the USA. To the point that he would not teach us completely in class.

And just two years ago I had attended a Japanese drinking party and if you have worked in Japan ever you will know that Japanese companies have drinking parties. I was talking with some co-workers, let me stress co-workers as they were no where near friends. Well we got into talking about my tattoos. And if anyone knows there is an old taboo in Japan about tattoos though if you search the history enough you will see that ancient Japan used to have tattoos. And the negative conotation was brought over from China and how they used tattooing.
Well we were talking about tattoos when the subject of what the perception of them were in Japan over what they actually stood for. With a heated conversation the truth came out. And if you know human psycology in the slightest you will know that acohol and anger will bring about someone’s true nature. For me it was being told that I should not become a Japanese citizen because Japanese people will never accept someone such as myself.

The shocking thing is that while I was in tears at the attempted shattering of my dream the other co-workers told me to calm down and that it was ok. Not a single one told him that the bigoted words he had used against me were wrong. So I am ashamed that in Japan people are not told that this kind of thinking is wrong. Yes in school they teach children about Martin Luther King Jr. But they do not truly see the lesson as pertinent to Japan because Japanese are not seen and do not see themselves as racist when in fact the words that are not seen as wrong are clear as racist in the USA.

I stand by my words, wrong is wrong and discrimination, bigotry, and hatred is wrong.

Book Marketing


I have read a couple of times and have heard people that classic line from Heath Ledger’s Joker and it is older than that but just to make the point. “If you are good at something, don’t do it for free.” And while this is all well and good and we all want to make money for what we do. I as an author would love for you all to buy my book. But I am not linking it here for a specific reason. And why I will not link it to when I give advice as well.

This is a new thought for me and well my older advice posts may have the links to my books but that was before I came to this decision. Marketing advice for authors should not be a pay for advice thing. You ever wonder why there are so many. and I mean many book marketers who offer free advice and advice blogs only to try and sell you on their book.

Sell 1000, a MILLION, ebooks and or books, just buy my book and I will teach you how. I see these people as good as the late night shopping people who want you to buy the easy to make money turn your trash into treasures tools. They are for lack of a better word snake oil salesmen, no don’t get me wrong, not all of them. But enough of them, a recent search that I did while thinking about this post was book marketing and there are over 600k books on the subject.

There are enough that you would think that the best course of action would be to write a marketing book and sell it. And there are books on writing a marketing ebook and selling it. That is just sick and in my opinion wrong. So I will put everything that I learn about marketing and stuff as I go for free here or on my newsletter.

Now that being said, I do not have anything against someone who actually wants to work with you and help to promote your work. That is actual money for services. This is a post aimed at those that claim to help you only to turn around and say sure I will help you, here buy my how to book. That is not help. Stop trying to sell it as help.

Robert…


Please help me get a buzz about my book. Reviews welcome.BookCoverImage

Robert a man by unlike any other but still the same. There is much that his brain could comprehend. But his love. She had a way of working him, of breaking into his bubble and forcing him to interact with the real world. He both loved her for it and hated her for it. Still he would not have it any other way. How did he ever manage to end up in such a position.

To follow or …


There is many reasons why I would follow someone, just as there are many reasons why I would not. But the key point in blogging comes down to sharing posts, sharing ideas, sharing communication and in a way we are all selling something. We all want that little bit of each others time. Well I will take up your time and let you take up mine, and along the way if I am a dick and asshole a pain in the but to you then so be it. But most of the time I try to carry myself in a civil manner.

But that does not mean you can not express your mind and that does not mean that I can not express mine. So let’s talk, give me your two cents and let me give you mine.

Here is a question, What is raw unbridled love?
