This is my man room/study/shed/nerd cave-it's crammed with books, which I have a slight addiction too. I've been in here a lot lately, since a literary agent sought me out a few months ago & convinced me to write a book of my own. I didn't really want to write this book, a memoir of my last year, so soon- it's been pretty intense- but the agent convinced me by speaking the truth- my memories will fade. After all the incredibly dubious "information" I read on the Internet about my arrest, incarceration, trial, & exoneration, it'll be nice to to speak in detail & lay out the absolute truth about what happened over there, just as I have been doing this whole time. The hive mind is a vast & global moronic game of "he said/she said", where rumors presented as truth fly at the speed on wifi on wings of speculation. The hive mind is far too big & way too stupid for veracity to exist on a global scale within its constantly shifting sphere. Those that wish to know the truth, not rumors, of this sad story will be able to. I hope my story will do some good, because there were lessons for me to learn about myself by living it (& not all of them were pretty), lessons I can learn in the telling, & maybe even some tiny ones to be had in the reading if I write it well enough. Yes, I will get paid, but no, I'm not trying to get rich- anyone with delusions of how the publishing world works should educate themselves- Stephen King I obviously am not. But I am a writer, so I will write- it's just what we do. Book is still untitled, due out Spring 2014, Perseus/Da Capo is N. American publisher, Random House in UK/OZ/NZ/S Africa. It's a very crazy, very sad story, but it's my story, so I will tell it with all the respect I have tried to maintain for all parties involved. More info soon. A photo-essay book concerning the nature of fear in our society will follow in a year or so. Don't live in fear, & don't live in lies. In your life, you must TELL THE TRUTH. Any other sort of life is unacceptable, at least for the honest & the compassionate. Peace.

  • my3hirdeyeNice meditation spot! When I saw this picture, it reminded me of my foxhole in Iraq. I carved out holes on the inside of my foxhole to place my books and photos. Anyways, I wanted to ask you if you've ever read Robert Greene's The 48 Laws of Power? Also, do you think you'll do any book signings when you're book comes out?
