Crystal McKee is a magnificent writer. Perhaps you already know this? She is listed on my sidebar, and her blog is called Boobs, Injuries & Dr. Pepper.
The reason I mention her here is because her latest series, The Crazy Chronicles, is a goldmine. All it needs is someone willing to work it. And I figure that maybe one of you might have the tools to do so.
The story she tells is both comic and tragic. It is comic because of her tremendous sardonic wit. It is tragic because, well, it's tragic. But Crystal is able to tell her amazing tale without sinking into overt whining. Above all, it is a story that should inspire. How anyone could live through such hideous things, and come out on the other end without spending the rest of her life boring hell out of people via self-pity, is astounding. That she can tell the tale with panache, and a huge dose of black humor, is miraculous.
This story should be making her mad bucks, rather than being published with no recompense. It is easily the most gripping thing I've ever read on-line, and I will snap up at least four or five copies of the resulting book, myself, if it ever hits the shelves.
I wish I were a publisher. If I was, I'd make her an offer NOW. Or, if I were a literary agent - or knew what it takes to become one - I would sign her up quick, fast, and in a hurry. We would both make a million dollars.
Nope. That's a lie. I'd make a million. She'd make ten million. Her story is that good. I'm deadly serious.
If this stuff isn't a best-seller waiting to happen - one that will be snapped up in a heartbeat for movie rights - you can call me One-Ball Jim because I'll eat my left nut. Fame is ready for Crystal McKee. Oprah will have a seat with her name on it, as soon as Oprah reads this thing. I have never been surer of anything in my life.
There is a big old pot of gold waiting at the end of Crystal McKee's rainbow. There is also a pot of gold waiting at the end of someone else's rainbow. I wish it was my rainbow, but I don't have the knowledge or skills to make it happen. How about you? How about someone you know?
You'll find the first chapter HERE. Here's CHAPTER TWO. You'll find the rest of the chapters yourself. I guarantee it.
Soon, with more better stuff - but not as good as what I just told you about.
