I agree with Adam! Get a quote from the studio so you know how much it will cost, set up a Kickstarter campaign with various combinations of your audiobooks as the reward for providing various levels of funding and the cash will be available to pay for the studio time with no risk to you and all of your fans showing you how much they love your work!

Having experienced the loss of a loved one, I offer these words of advice. Talk about the one you have lost. Share the great memories that you have, for our loved ones live on in our memories. Sharing these positive memories helps you move past your grief and begin the next phase of figuring out how to live without your loved one. Read the stories that you have written about Ferris. Share them with others. Cry, laugh, sob, sigh, and hug the ones that you still have. They share your loss and love.

To Josh Chowder, The church in which I was raised taught that God loved everyone and Jesus died for all of our sins. You reference words written by the leaders of your church as a reason to oppose same-sex marriage. You are confusing human interpretation of the scripture with the true gospel. There are fewer references to same-sex relationships in the Bible than there are to the support of slavery and many other practices that are now considered unacceptable. The LDS no longer permits polygamy. The United States has outlawed slavery. Most churches now recognize divorce. As society evolves and we discover new truths, our thinking evolves. Being LGBT is not a choice. I was born gay. This fact was not known when humans wrote our many books of worship. Religious philosophy related to same-sex unions is antiquated, just as it was relative to divorce until recently. Laws that discriminate against same-sex partners are antiquated, just like the laws that did not allow interracial marriages until just a few decades ago. IMHO the religious leaders should focus on a message of love, respect, and inclusiveness. There is no law that exists that requires a church to perform a religious ceremony for same-sex couples (or for any couple), nor will there ever be. The separation of church and state is central to the way that our forefathers structured or great country. Lets keep it that way. The deception that many churches perpetuate by saying that a law will require them to perform a ceremony is sad. The hatred that is spread by many religious leaders is unchristian. Jesus never once preached hatred towards anyone. Why do religious leaders of today preach hatred against the LGBT community and same-sex marriages? I pray that God will forgive your sins of hatred and discrimination. In Peace, Chad Morrison Clifton Park, NY

Thank you! I really appreciate all of you who are speaking out against Prop 8 and this attempt to write hatred into California's constitution. From a gay New Yorker who is looking forward to the day when it will be legal to marry my partner in our home state of New York. Vote "No" and tell all of your friends!

Wil - Thank you for the last couple posts. These little bits of joy are why I started reading WWdN. I hope that you continue to have the time to share a bit of yourself with me (and the other gazillion people who care). I hope you enjoyed the time with your family today. I know I certainly did!
