Edgar E. Willis World War II Memoir Interview Part 2, Plus... Thursday's Essay Preview

And Then Some Publishing News

Announcing the release of Part 2... Anthony Weaver's interview with Edgar E. Willis about his memoir of World War II, "Civilian in an Ill-fitting Uniform." Part 2 of Anthony's interview picks up from a previous question in Part 1. Events had happened to Edgar that were either pure luck or just because of the circumstance of the moment. Part 2 starts with Edgar's second story... his pure luck Navy physical. As we progressed, I asked about the captains Edgar served under and his best explanation? He reads from his memoir. We finish off part 2 with, "That's the way the navy does it!"

Did you see Part 1 of Anthony Weaver's interview with Edgar E. Willis? In Part 1 of the interview I ask Edgar about his inspiration for the book, the reason for the title, and why he decided to include his life before and after his service.

Also released last week was the new video, "How to make a Viral Video-Based on the KISS theory." Illustrator Anthony Weaver and author Lynne Hall have put together a coaching video on How to Make a Viral Video, based on the K.I.S.S. Theory (Keep it simple... stupid). Instead of a technical approach explaining camera types, lenses, programs used to produce videos, this is a fun look at being in front of the camera and getting used to the bright lights shining on you.  Anthony and Lynne show you how they shot their video, including the end result!

Thursday's And Then Some Essay preview:

Thursday’s essay is called, “Having a remote to get us through life?"  Imagine along with me in this essay what it would be like in your life if you had a remote control that gave you the possibility for mute, fast forward, reverse, do over, channel selection, slow motion, delete, and cut and paste?  How would your life be different?  I'm certain it would be far different than it is now . . . and then some!

Having a remote to get us through life?
by Richard L. Weaver II


In this age of technology, scientists need not stop with remote-controlled garage-door openers and TVs, invent a remote to help me get through life.  And while you’re at it, put on the remote a number of buttons for future use—so that I can program them whatever way I choose and whenever I need them.  Maybe I’ll program one to make me a very wealthy man, another to bring me many new friends, and a third.....hmmmmmm.....maybe with the third I’ll program it to keep me forever young!
