There are many things happening in the world which ticks me the hell off. I, as a citizen in the ‘real’ world can’t change society with a flick of my hand, but my laptop keys can kick butt and change fallacies. I can write people to fulfill my dreams. I can have them do what needs to be done and get away with it.
In The Fishing Trip a man named Durham takes revenge on all of the child molesters in the small town where he lived as a child. This town where perverts are prevalent. In the novel some of the most violent and horrendous acts on children are performed and the abusers faced no consequences or retribution.
In my opinion anyone who has the sick mind to rape and/or commit other acts of violence on children, should just accept the fact they will die without a trial.
Come over and get to meet them.
The Perfect Solution which is about a woman who decides she wants a certain child, and she goes and takes him. Or should I say, he is given to her by the teacher entrusted with his care. The book goes all into the negligence that can be found in the childcare center profession Bertha Wall, the owner of the center was the first characters to sit In the Chair.
- YeamieWaffles: I already love Ey Wade's style of writing and I haven't even checked out her blog yet. I'm so glad that you feel like you've finally found your platform and wish you the best of luck in your book and future Ey.
shelly: This is totally cool stuff. Sharing this one on FB and Twitter. Hugs,Shelly http://www.
- Ciara: Being a mother who has witnessed two men, who worked around my children and church and the YMCA, be arrested for this, I'd like to see a better system. Thank goodness my kids were safe. I guess being paranoid with my kids has paid off.
- L. Diane Wolfe: We do need a better system. I was lucky I established my platform early, as everything revolves around my speaking now.
- Karen Lange: Thank you, Lee, for sharing Ey with us! I find her approach refreshing and thought provoking.
- cleemckenzie: I love "poetic justice," and I when I write anything I think about it. It's something that doesn't often happen in real life, but it's something that can happen if we want it to in our stories. The thing to avoid when poetic justice is uppermost in your mind and you're typing away is the cliche. That's the hard part.Great to meet you here on Tossing It Out!
- Alex J. Cavanaugh: Tough subjects to tackle but somebody has to!
- Lena Winfrey Seder: Ey, glad you have found your platform. And it really helps to be passionate for a cause and to write about it. Writing should be used as a positive tool to make change in the world. And sometimes there needs to be some controversy to force things to get done. Good luck on your book and in everything you do!
- Theresa Milstein: Arlee, thanks for introducing me to Ey Wade. Life demands action is a wonderful philosophy. I do shy away from topics on my blog, but I don't think anything would be off limits in a book, if the idea/character came to me.
- Carol Kilgore: I agree with Theresa.
- P V Ariel: Hi Arlee,Good to be here again.Good Post Indeed, but can't fully agree with the punishment she wants to give the guilty. Its practically not possible, but at the same time they must not escape the law of the land. They must be rewarded with severe punishments, but not to the utmost of killing, that is to be left out to the creator of the universe. Thanks Arlee for introducing her thru these pages. Best,Philip
- J.L. Campbell: Ey sounds like quite a radical. As a writer, I tell my stories even if the subjects are controversial. I wouldn't be true to myself if I avoid telling a tale that I have strong feelings about.
- DM T Mathieson: The Fishing Trip is a great book and it's impossible not to love Durham.One of Ey's greatest strengths as a writer is her ability to 'tell it like it is'. She's not afraid to speak up for the little people and so that's what she does. Don't ever stop Ey, they need you.
- nutschell: I actually agree with Ey in terms of this sexual predators. I think it's the worst possible crime--maybe worse than taking a person's life, is taking his dignity. I'm definitely going to read this book! Nutschell www.thewritingnut.com
- Christine Rains: I'd definitely like to see a better system. As a mother, I'm petrified of anything like that happening to my child. As for my writing, it's more for fun than controversy. My heroines are usually very morale, though, only because that's how I am.
