Edward and The Sun

Loud beauty is your nature.

You don’t try to impress.

Yet you made this man a chaser.

By being yourself and nothing less.

I am not afraid to say out loud,

How beautiful you really are to me.

You shine like the brightest sun above a cloud.

You illuminate my darkness and set me free.

You and me are the dream team.

Being with you makes me feel unstoppable.

You shine this beautiful beam.

Thank you for your loveliness.

It feels me with such liveliness.

Reflection by T. Edward Redd

I know a man who’s losing,

The light in his eyes.

His heart is bruising.

Pain eats away at his soul like flies.

Those dying eyes.

How they remind me of mine.

So long ago I tried, freeing my soul from dark cries.

But was saved by the great divine.

I was rejected by death.

I discarded my own life.

Yet was given one last breath.

Now I live with great strive.

How can I save his soul?

It’s like I’ve been sent back in time.

Placed here to console.

Stop him from listening, to familiar dark chimes.

I’m lost for action.

Though I avoided my self-inflicted demise.

It was only by a fraction.

Not my doing. But a gift from the skies.

Please don’t let go.

Though times are dark.

You must search for your inner glow.

Look in your heart and let light spark.

Poetry Time. Lust, Lust.

T.Edward Redd

Lust, Lust”

I never meant for it to be this much.

No feelings were supposed to be. No emotion.

It was just our touch.

My body was tense and so was yours.

We both agreed it was just lust.

So we pleased each other behind closed doors.

You blew my rocks off. I made your body numb.

Satisfaction. Pleasure. Lust. No emotion.

You kept quiet. While in your heart, feelings begun.

I heard it in your voice. I could see it in your eyes.

Even when you lied and said, “Just lust.”

I knew I had become your heart’s demise.

I never meant for it to mean this much.

I never mean to hurt you.

I thought it was just our touch.

You said just lust.

Nothing Beyond a Man by T. Edward Redd

When I first saw her,

It was love at first sight.

She wanted not my royalty.

She wanted not a dime.

Just a dance with a man she saw across the room.

We moved with such bliss.

I was no Prince Charming. There were no expectations to meet.

Just a man and a woman. She took me from my world.

For the first time in my burdensome life of royalty,

I found a woman who wanted nothing but I.

With her I was naked and free. Free to be just me.

Like the shooting star she was,

She came and went.

Leaving nothing but beautiful stardust, to confirm her existence.

My love was blind. I followed her glow and found the star and my life…dimmed.

I married a woman I barely knew.

A fantasy my desperate mind placed on a stranger. An escape.

Irony would have it that I too was her escape.

She was a poor girl looking to escape her troublesome world.

She found a prince and made him her ticket to freedom.

She was just like the others.

Full of unrealistic needs and expectations.

Can a man not just be a man? Or is man doomed to always play hero and savior?

I never tried to repaint her beautiful canvas.

So why does she try to paint over an already finished work of art?

Cinderella, you made me feel so normal that night.

But why is it now you expect me to be anything more than a man?

Awake!! Bright and early

Rise and shine bloggers! The sun is shining in the winter. Isn’t it supposed to snow? Whatever, take the win. It looks like a pretty good day.

I woke up pretty early and it’s because I plan to get a lot done today. I don’t have work and I’m on winter break so I have a lot of free time. I will be dedicating most if not all of this time to book work. I’m still pumped about yesterday. I’m under 500 pages! My book has a fighting chance now yes, yes, yes!!I feel like that guy on the Mighty Ducks after they won at the end. Remember that movie?

 

And it’s not that I didn’t think the book would get readers in the first place. It’s just that if a book looks to be the size of a dictionary, I doubt anyone would bother to look at it unless the cover was AMAZING. I honestly believe readers will love Hero’s Tale. It’s one of those books that touch you at the core. It may even inspire you.

Before I send the book to CreateSpace and start on cover designs I need to format the interior just right. I went through it last night and did it. Right now I’m going to check out standards to make sure it’s finished properly.

Aside from that you all should know that I have an account on pretty much every popular social network. Facebook, Twitter, Tumblr and Instagram are websites I can be found on. I’ve been getting adds on both tumblr and facebook. It’s virtually impossible to find me anywhere besides Facebook and that’s because they’re all either extremely private or…well that’s the only reason.

Now before any eyes start to rise in suspicion let me explain. The accounts are set on private to prevent stalkers or people who I would otherwise prefer didn’t have access to, well, my life. I posts so much and there’s alot of info about me, especially on my Facebook.

But since I will be a public figure soon with the publish and all, I think you all should be able to see “me” as in learn who the author is through those personal things. So I just have to do some cleanup work on the sites before I make them all public. No adds will be necessary, you’ll just be able to look me up. This is all part of a plan I made for my book publishing. I knew that I was going to use Facebook, Twitter and Tumblr. Hadn’t thought about Instagram, but why not. So it’s in my schedule to have those sites public before the 1st of February. I’m aiming for early January.

Alright, it’s time for me to get to work. Have a great day you all and thanks for following 🙂

I’m back in this!! Update 12-26-2013

Sorry I’m late bloggers/followers. I work at this cool little frozen yogurt shop and when I close shop it’s usually at 9. Takes me about 45 minutes then the drive home is like 30…if I don’t speed 🙂

So I texted my trusty editor during work to inform her of the page dilemma. Her reaction, priceless. I’m expecting her to freak out like I did, but she VERY CALM. I’d go as far to say nonchalant.

Her response went something like this.

Me: We have a problem. After formatting it and adjusting the trim size it came out to be over 700. Text me asap.

Her: So how is that a problem. The font should be smaller then.

I mean…DUH! Why hadn’t I thought of that?? Last night I almost had a heart attack or something. 700 pages, way too long. But I never thought about changing the font size AND THE STYLE! On top of her advice I got alot of advice on here. You all were helpful, thank you.

So here’s the update. After changing the font and style which was “Time New Roman-14” to Garamond-(Between 10-11). The pages knocked down to 456 with a word count of 115,176. So now I can breathe again. I’ll have format the paragraphs and footers again. But this looks great.

Now I’m excited. Hero’s Tale is an amazing Romance novel that I want to share with readers. I don’t want it turned away because readers see how thick the book is.

So now I need to format this doc, then do a book cover design. The sooner I get the cover then sooner I’ll be ready to start the whole process. My fingers are tingling from the excitement xD.

Well all, I have to get to work. I’ll be on here making comments and checking out blogs for a while too. Some of you have a tumblr and a facebook. As soon as I set the pages up, ADD ME. I can’t tell how great it is to finally know more writers, poets, musicians. You know, creative people. I’ll have links on my page soon 🙂
