Sorry it did not work out, Neil. 
Wow!! I wrote earlier this week there was one final chance to adopt Xavier.  That hope fell through. Here is the story well told by Miser Mom.

Is there a top-100 list of sorts out there that shows who the most influential writers are by country of origina? I was wondering who's influencing the individual nations and on what subject?

Questions, questions, questions: Is it possible to make a slow ascent into outer space? And, if so, would that slowly ascending ship encounter the problems with friction that rapid ascension creates or suffer some other issues? I mean, how hard is it to transition from one part of the earth's atmosphere and the space that surrounds it? These are the questions that challenge me tonight. Anyone have responses? Science behind this?

Thank you all so much for sharing your knowledge on these topics, and for the links for further reading. Each new piece of information helps me refine this concept a bit further. 

The ship I have in mind would be quite strong, perhaps virtually indestructible, but not entirely so. Flawed vehicles offer a weath of opportunities for dramatic scenes.

So, the launch window won't be much of a concern, but weather might play a part. Interesting.  I'll definitely give some reading time to the topic of space elevators. I've heard the term but don't know much about them.

I am rereading William Bernhardt's book, Creating Character and it's really interesting, even the second time. At the end of the chapter are Red Sneaker exercises that really get you thinking. Has anyone written a story where the person you began writing as the bad guy actually threatened to turn out to be the hero?

That's very insightful and helpful, Malcolm. It's easy to forget that the natural senses we are given should play a part in our writing, else our characters are all one-dimensional, and while one or two less-than-critical characters are okay in that state, not so for the protagonist or antagonist.

Autumn sounds like a great time to go. Cooler temps and the changing leaves. Good video.

Rainy days have always seemed the best time to stay indoors with a good book. I can think back to many days when I curled up in my favorite chair, the rain pattering atop the roof and dripping down the window panes, reading a...

A while back I came across this section in the Kansas City Star's site and thought I would share it. It is for submitting press releases. You will want to read the guidelines for submissions after signing up. I didn't find it in time to put out the release for my latest book, but I will be using it for the next one. I hope it helps. http://pressreleases.kcstar.com/register/

Introduction

I am an avid writer, and reader of books both fiction and non.  I enjoy reading historical biographies, particularly, and I am fortunate to work in a field that allows me to help, in some small part, in preserving history for future generations. 

I enjoy traveling, both day trips and distant jaunts, and I enjoy talking with people.  My life can be very hectic at times, so opportunities for pursuing hobbies is limited. 

I am a Christian, trying every day to live life more abundantly in and obedient to Christ.

This is a wonderful place for visitors and researchers. There are many fascinating exhibits and the staff are wonderfully helpful. I utilized the archived information there and tapped the staff knowledge to help me in researching pictures and books for my nonfiction book. They were very helpful in locating materials, and also made recommendations about additional resources outside of the museum's collections.
