    Adventure author Clive Cussler told me that when he wrote 'Night Probe!' in 1981, he wanted to use a character - whom he called "Brian Shaw" - who was clearly supposed to be James Bond, and the Ian Fleming estate offered to let him use the Bond name - for $50,000. Cussler passed. Didn't hurt the story a bit.

    I hope we will see a big impact from this release of books, articles, photos, and art.
    Call your state legislators and insist they approve the Article V convention of States to propose amendments.


    I pledge allegiance to the Constitution as written and understood by this nation's founders, and to the Republic it created, an indivisible union of sovereign States, with liberty and justice for all.

    Hundreds of thousands of books, articles, photographs, and other works will all become public domain in less than two weeks. I am always looking for new images to use in my blogs. I use quotes in my books. This will give me more options where I do not have to seek a copyright holder's permission.

    I have committed to publishing two books in 2019. This new material may inspire me to write more.
    I had to change the cover of one of my books. I was lucky that the illustrator was a nice woman. She didn't try try sue me. Lesson learned.

    Wow, you know Clive Cussler? Cool, I've read a lot of his stuff.

    Night Probe was the first Clive Cussler book I read...I've read many more, since.

    I had no idea I was on a board among (old school) published authors beyond the clue that the writing on this board is generally very good.

    How about some links?

    Copyright it folks -- $35.00
    Has electronic communications like the internet changed the veracity of the copyright office?
