The Funny, Wise, Bighearted Story of a Bonding Road Trip—and the Healing Power of Human Connection When Claudia’s sixteen-year-old son, Ross, announces he’s quitting high school and leaving home a year early, she panics because they’re so disconnected she’s afraid she’ll lose him forever. Then a small miracle happens—they discover they have the same escape fantasy, to head west on I-10 to where she grew up, in Corpus Christi, Houston, and Kingsville, Texas. So, on a tight budget and with the expense clock ticking, they travel from Tallahassee to Texas and back, 2,400 miles in one week. But the distance they cover transcends the miles that they drive. Along the way Claudia recounts the sometimes hilarious, often harrowing, but ultimately courageous Texas family story that defined her childhood and is Ross's heritage—a story that centers on her own mother's path-breaking journey from a family history of dysfunction, alcoholism, and abuse to create a life for herself and a loving home for her children. As Claudia and Ross spend time together, sharing stories and laughter, she's able to see more clearly the young man her son has become, and he takes responsibility for his unhappiness and finds a solution. With prose that is nimble, vivid, and rich in humor, here is a spirited testament to the crucial bond between mothers and children.

Whenever I speak with aspiring Hollywood writers, the first question they ask is ¡§How do I break in? How do I get an agent and how do I get that first job.¡ ̈ But getting an agent and that first job isn¡¦t going to get you very far. What aspiring writers should be asking is ¡§How do I build a successful career in Hollywood?¡ ̈ The agent and the first job is just the beginning. Hollywood is full of writers who sold one or two scripts and were never heard from again. What it takes to succeed on your first job and then build on it to get the next job and the next is what separates the ¡§one script wonder¡ ̈ from the writer with a Hollywood career. Among the questions aspiring writers really need to ask are: „« How Do I Know When My Spec Script Is Ready For Submission? „« What Does An Agent Look For In A Writer Beyond Their Scripts? „« Once I Have An Agent What Else Should I Be Doing? „« When I Go To A ¡§Meet & Greet,¡ ̈ What Do I Say? „« How Do I Prepare For The Different Types Of Pitch Meetings? „« How Do I Handle Notes I Disagree With? „« Do I Need A Lawyer And A Manager? Most writers discover the answers to these questions through trial and error. But in Hollywood, errors can be costly to a writer¡¦s career. More than one writer has seen his career thwarted due to a simple lack of awareness. The goal of ¡§Writing For The Hollywood $¡ ̈ is to arm aspiring writers with as much information as possible so not only will the road to their first agent and sale be easier, but they¡¦ll also be able to avoid costly mistakes and have a much better chance of turning that first job into a another and another. ¡§Writing For The Hollywood $¡ ̈ begins by asking the writer to do some serious self-examination as it lists the basic ¡§ingredients¡ ̈ beyond a good script that a writer will need if they expect to build a career as a Hollywood writer. From here it goes on to cover topics such as dealing with executives, the different types of pitch meetings, the script notes process, the realities of working on a television writing staff and avoiding potential land mines that can damage a writer¡¦s forward progress. ¡§Writing for The Hollywood $¡ ̈ provides invaluable information for anyone who¡¦s ever aspired to write for the screen, by someone who¡¦s actually been there and done it.

Learn what questions to ask and how to interview people for the significant moments in their life stories, and then write, publish, and bind by hand exquisitely-crafted personal gift books, memoirs, or business success stories. Words in memoirs or life success story gift books have a life of their own. The purpose of a hand-made, finely bound memoirs or business success-story gift book is to show how two or more people bring out the best in one another. You'd be surprised how many people are satisfied to pay up to $10,000 (or more depending upon the publisher) to have only one copy of a hand-bound hardcover book published about their event or life story. What does it take to create and publish a memoirs gift book commemorating a Bar Mitzvah, confirmation, wedding, or true experience? What quality of personal book do you want to make from scratch-writing, printing, and binding? As far as printing and binding, you can make one finished book at a cost to you of only $1.50-$4.50. What you charge a client depends on what it costs you. If you create and publish a custom gift book, you'd publish only one copy of a hand bound, hard-cover book. The tome would contain anywhere from 60 to 100 photos. Text material based on phone or live interviews running at least two hours for one person (or more if needed and about two hours spent per each interview) would be about 80 to 120 published pages-slightly more, but only if necessary. Look at yourself as a designer, writer, interviewer, and book binder. Learn how to make your own pop-up books for all ages.
