Yes, the whole world's gone mad!
Such sorrowful chain of events, so very sad.
Snipers ambushing, firing AK weapons of assault.
Tensions, rage and frustrations; who's at fault?

The whole world's gone mad!

Families crying, still mourning, so much grief.
Dallas, Baton Rouge police killings; we are sick in disbelief.
Retaliation, devastation in reaction to black mens'
killings.
Recently, in Baton Rouge, and Minnesota--
angry feelings.

It seems the whole world's gone mad!

Revenge killings; young men declaring war on police.
So much horror; when will racial battles cease?
People tired, all fired up watching news releases.
Marches, protests for justice, advocating peace.

Don't you feel like the whole world's gone mad?

In France party goers were mowed down by terrorist who was driving a van.
Driving over; shooting innocent people; ambushes and violence--
can't understand.
Terrorists gladly claim responsibility; rejoicing in their ability.
Using suicide bombers and violence becomes a sad reality.

Didn't I tell you the whole world's gone mad?

Turkey came under seige; militants tried to overthrow.
But, government and the citizens wouldn't let go.
People dying, families crying; violent outbursts everywhere.
Seems whole world in chaotic frenzy; craziness out there.

The whole world's gone mad!

Now, home-grown terrorists in America's own backyard.
Gay bar in Orlando, man held hostages; killer hit them hard.
I keep wondering what's next; I feel something in the air.
We'd better be watchful and vigilant, because people's nerves
are all on edge.
We don't know what anyone's planning next; it's like waiting
for someone to jump off a ledge.

The whole world's gone mad!
Commentary--Hope the world doesn't take us with it!

First thank you for the suggestion to creat an Author's page, http://www.richardmathews.net

 

Secondly, wanted to quickly note how greatly I've appreciated posts as well as replies which have occurred from Community.

 

Unlike the highly talented, truly outstanding Author's present here, I am only a story teller.

 

Someone looking back on nearly a six decade journey enjoying what time I have left.

 

Finally took your advice posting a half dozen previews to various titiles.

 

In FULL DISCLOURE, all my e-books are offerred for Free quarterly.

 

Createspace and KDP made one of my last dreams come true.

 

As a cancer survivor, I'm just trying to share what I learned.

 

Peace be with you.

 

Semper FI

Well that was fun..

Posted by ezduzit Apr 30, 2017

As a kindle author of three thrillers thought it was about time to try my first paperback copy of my latest 'The Ryan Saga'.You get to be familiar with any job you are in, but after 3 or 4 days of wrestling my Scrivenor kindle setup to paperback, designing covers etc I take my hat off to publishers, an apparently easy job that below the surface is incredibly complicated with lots of nuances.

I possibly have finally achieved a satisfactory result, but whether it is the best print size, the best format, the best layout, the best fonts, the best cover that I could achieve is problematical - I think I still have a lot to learn.

Good Morning

Posted by msplayful Apr 30, 2017

My first time on this board. Looks like a good place to be. I haven't published a book on Createspace, but plan to. I am here to get guidance and suggestions - anything to make my book look better, be better . . . I'm a poet and a writer. Quit groaning . . . for those who don't just LOVE poetry. My poems are more like mini short stories. They rhyme and a few have been published in magazines. . . I've had a few nonfiction articles publshed .. . won an honorable mention award for a short story. My first book may be a very short book of poems that I've written. I know poetry books don't sell all that well, but "nothing ventured, nothing gained" is my philosophy. I'm so GLAD I found this place!

I have published three books and made them available on Kindle as ebooks. I have not taken the Amazon Ad program since it is not offered through the CreateSpace program but separately with Amazon for a fee. I would like to start a discussion here to understand how the Amazon Ad works and whether anyone can comment on its value.

The latest book published this month is shown as an example.

The Changing Giants: The U.S. and China by Dr. Ifay F. Chang April 1, 2017

The bitter truth is there's a lot you is capable of doing to stop balding: you can search some medicines or hair transplantation. "Wonder-working" remedies as massage, creams, vitamins in large doses are not of a tremendous use."Shall I compare thee to a summers event?" This is really want William Shakespeare's most famous sonnets, officially titled "Sonnet 18." Utilizes standard Shakespearean structure with iambic pentameter. It compares a lover to a summer's day, and proceeds on to say that the lover is far fairer, and tend to surpass time, through line.The background of white bridal wear should for you to the Victoria era. vitanoria review was the first woman who wears white wedding gowns which would then to be able to considered a flamboyant white gown to be with her wedding ceremony in 1840. Vitanoria This gorgeous wedding gown did not start traditions immediately; however, many women think this as an expression of class and style and then they start to put white bridal wear in wedding and reception to copy vitanoria overview. After that, it spawns the interest and use of white designer wedding dresses as marketers today.

Need feedback

Posted by moonbeam7 Apr 18, 2017

I'm trying to improve my description for my book Unraveled. Would appreciate any and all feedback.

Alyson Pierce believed she was like any other seventeen year old girl. She wasn't. She believed her mother died giving birth, but Alyson was never born. Everything she knew was a lie. Betrayed by her "father", she sets out on a quest to find the truth. Instead, she finds a world where the distinction between right and wrong isn't always clear and the truth she seeks could be deadly.

Hello, new Sci-Fi writer

Posted by Blackie_Chan Apr 16, 2017

Hello, everyone, my name is Justin Pyfrom and I'm a lover of all things Science Fiction and Video Games. I've been a lover of storywriting since I was in grad school and it followed me until I got my Bachelor's in Game Simulation and Programming. But, after a few failed projects, my best mate reminded me that EVERYBODY knows how to design a game but where I really shine is telling a compelling story and creating intriquing characters. With that, I was convinced to do what I really love and write stories that "bend minds". I'm hoping that I do them proud and learn more about myself in the process.

 

Please, any and all feedback is greatly appricated.

NEW SONGS, BOOKS, POEMS, FOR BONFIRE

 

By Matthew Oye

 

I do believe that God has blessed with incredible gift of writing. For the past twenty five years I have written over 1500 new gospel songs, fifty manuscripts, 100 personal development essays, sixty poems and about twenty ideas for invention.

 

But the sad truth is that I have never been given to opportunity nor have help to get these incredible works  produced and published to world. I want the world to hear my original gospel songs, I want the world to read my books, read my poem and use my idea-inventions which can increase the quality of life for people. But who will help me? Who will help me to relieve the excruciating agony I go through everyday seeing the creation of ingenuity which lay buried in my shelf?

 

My pains must have an end. I have now   decided to make a bonfire of the songs, poems, books, invention idea, essays, because singing the new songs alone and crying about it everyday has become unbearable for me.   I want to make a bonfire of the them to relieve me of the pains of an extraordinary gift from God which the world cannot appreciate. I want to make a bonfire of this incredible work of art so that I can be free, free from pains, free from the guilt of having a gift that is not blessing mankind as intended. My name is Matthew, songwriter, prolific author, inventor and poet

Irish Humor

Posted by JudasPriest Apr 14, 2017

Hi

 

I'm not going to stun the literary world with yet another smouldering vampire or any other form of esoteric eroticism.  My books are designed to make you laugh.  I write edgy Irish humor and I'm told I'm good at it.  My first book - "Bad Faith" - has been a moderate success.  Now, my second one is available on Amazon and all other etceteras.  Don't expect it to change your life.  It won't.  But, like cracking open a can of beer, kicking off your shoes and relaxing into your favorite chair, it might make you forget your troubles for an hour or three.

Hello Everybody, I am new to CreateSpace.  My Publisher just told me they would not publish my book so I am trying to do it myself via Create Space. I will be hanging around and reading posts and comments. I just wanted to introduce myself and say hello. I am a new arthor and I consider myself an unlikely arthor.  So if I ask a question that may seem simple; bear with me because I am a babe in all this.
