Dream Catcher Failure Was Never An Option- Audio Book to be Released in 2012

Dream Catcher Failure Was Never an Option

 

For those of you who have read my books and follow my blog know that I currently have one of my books in audio, A Voice From the Grave was released last year in audio. This year I have chosen Dream Catcher, Failure Was Never an Option to be released in audio. This is a true story about one man’s journey into the abyss of mental retardation during the years of darkness for those who are different.

Stan was born in 1952 at a time when the handicapped were put away or ignored and left to basically fiend for themselves. Many of them were abused either in the back room of their homes or in asylums. This didn’t happen to Stan. He was loved, accepted and became a productive person in our twisted and cruel society.

He became a pioneer in the Fulton County Ga school system during the middle 1950’s and graduated from high school in 1973. He has worked in the public sector all his life and continues to do so at 60 years old. His story is one of love, acceptance, success and pain.

His story will be released on audio by Brook Forest Voices which is located in Colorado. It is currently being touted to Publisher’s Weekly by Brook Forest Voices. This book is not one that you will want to miss. It is not one that you will want someone you know who is challenged to miss. The beauty of this audio book is it will be created in mp3 format. That means the entire book is on one disc. The listener will be able to download it to their computer, mp3 player or most any other electronic device to listen to at their leisure. Even the elderly, blind or those who have limited hand mobility will be able to listen to this book without any trouble. You will also be able to listen to it on your Amazon Kindle through their audible program and you will be able to download it through itunes.  You will be able to play it in the new model cars which have the mp3 player.

If you love audio books but hate having to change the disks you are going to love my books. A Voice from the Grave is available now at Amazon, itunes, Brook Forest Voices and my online store at http://thebookattic.ecrater.com

Watch for the release of Dream Catcher Failure Was Never an Option later this year.

If You Missed the Show Last Night…….

<a“” width=”199″ height=”300″ />

Best Selling Florida Author Yvonne Mason

Well kiddies, if you missed the show last night you missed an hour of side splitting, belly laughing, tear running fun. I was a guest on http://www.blogtalkradio.com/ashleyfontainne/2012/03/11/yvonne-mason. We talked and laughed about many things including the fact that her co-host Bennet Pomerantz was stuck between to true southern girls who gave him no slack. In between laughing and talking with him, I did manage to discuss my books and why I write.

Yes, we also talked about my hats and the flying monkeys that are always appearing on my facebook page and why they are so important to me.

Go listen to the show, learn a bit about me and why I do what I do. I am not your average author. I don’t stick to just one genre. The voices in my head won’t let me. I learned a long time ago to just let them do their thing. Sometimes it gets extremely crowded in there. But such as it is with authors. I love what I do and no I don’t expect to get rich- but in the big picture I am already richer beyond my wildest dreams.

When Fates Collide

We talked about the conception of this little jewel and her sister.

When Fates Collide Mardi Gras Bound

Both of these books should be illegal because they are so funny. This book comes with a disclaimer that we are not responsible for soiled clothing as you are reading it.

Dream Catcher Failure Was Never an Option

This is the reason I am successful. This book is the heart and soul of our family. He has never quit even though he could. So we never quit.

Blood Alley

This little short story is only available right now on kindle and nook. It is well worth the read. It will make you think twice about traveling late at night alone on a two lane black top.

A Voice From the Grave

My historical fiction is available in book form, kindle, kindle audible, nook and in an mp3 CD format. If you enjoy reading about history of the civil war you will love this book.

Tangled Minds

Every teen should read this book. There are life’s lessons as well as entertainment between the pages. Actions always create and equal or opposite reaction which will without fail create a consequence!

The Last Rites

My second true crime. She was raped and executed and left in a remote area. To add insult to injury no one cared enough to claim her body. She was buried by the county in a pauper’s grave. Read her story and remember her death and honor her life.

Silent Scream A True Crime

Florida’s first serial killer Gerard Schaefer tortured and executed between 9-34 young and young women. This is their story.

Brilliant Insanity

Brilliant Insanity the title says it all. A serial killer has five days to live and he is allowed to tell his story. The story is told in first person and will keep you up nights. No it is not a true crime. But it could have happened.

Check out the show and my books. They are all on Amazon, Lulu, Kindle, Nook, itunes, ebooks, and my online bookstore if you would like a signed copy at http://thebookattic.ecrater.com

Go listen to the show laugh till you cry – then go order my books – it will make your day.

Intangible Gifts!

Dream Catcher Failure Was Never an Option

Years ago my family was given a gift that keeps on giving. No matter how bad it gets no matter what happens this gift keeps on giving back. This gift was given to us at a time when gifts like this was no the norm. Nor was it accepted in a closed minded and bigoted society. This gift was shunned, ignored and hidden from the world. This gift was considered a shame upon the family especially the mother. This gift was picked on, teased and often times killed because of the “difference.” There was no education for this gift no tolerance no love.

But in our home, this gift was loved, accepted, and wanted. I am talking about an amazing child who was born at a time when the handicapped were not accepted. In 1952 Stan came into our lives. He was diagnosed as Retarded after a bout of the flu leading to an inflammation of the brain which caused damage to his motor skills and speech skills among other things. The normal was “no hope” – but not in our house.

Stan not only had parents, siblings and a support group who truly loved and accepted him, he had a strength from within that can’t be taught. He believed in himself even when he was small. My life with my brother has taught me many things, but most of all it has taught me that we all have challenges, we all are retarded in some form. None of us are perfect and when we say we are we are lying to ourselves. Stan has taught me that dreams are more than just dreams, they are real and that we should never ever let them die. We should strive toward them daily. He has taught me that “everything will be alright” no matter what happens. That no matter how dark the storm clouds are there will always be a rainbow later.

Stan knows the true meaning of unconditional love even when he has been hurt. He knows the depth of loyalty. He believes that one must and should work for their paycheck for many reasons. The most important is self respect and a feeling of independence. He understands that one must work in order to live not just exist. He believes in a days work for a day’s pay. He refuses handouts from anyone and he pays his own way.

Stan is a gift to so many in many ways and for many reasons. You see he leaves a part of himself behind with whoever he meets and he stays with that person for ever. Stan is not a bigot, nor does he allow that in his life. He is not filled with self pity because he is handicapped. He doesn’t ask for anyone else to feel pity for him either. In fact it makes him angry when they do. He doesn’t ask for special attention or favors. He only asks for respect as a human who has the same feelings and emotions we all do.

He could draw a check from the government but he says, “I want to make my own money. I don’t want to live off the government.” He understands that a certain pride comes from working and making one’s own way in the world. He understands that a certain sense of well being and well roundness comes from working and getting paid for it. He understands that a sense of accomplishment comes from earning that paycheck. He understands he is not a drain on society because he contributes to society. He is worthwhile and he is somebody.

His story should be in every home, on every bookshelf in every school and in the hand of every professional from Doctors to Nurses to those who delve into the mind to teachers and aids and parents and siblings. If Stan can see all these things and he is “Retarded” then what is stopping the rest of the world from being productive?

I can only think of one thing- Selfishness. Read his story, learn how he made his dreams real when the world said he couldn’t – learn how he accepted the cards he was dealt and used them to make himself successful. Read his story and take the lessons and apply them to your life. You see we all have challenges- we all have a handicap in some shape or form. But most times we hide it from ourselves as well as the world and it becomes our crutch or excuse or so called reason for not fulfilling our dreams. Then at the end of our life we play the “shoulda, coulda, woulda” game. We die with regrets.

Stand on Graduation Day it was never supposed to happen

This was just one of his many dreams that has come true!

Imperfect Children in a “Perfect” World

Dream Catcher Failure Was Never an Option

I have watched and listened with a couple of emotions and thoughts as the pundits and those who have no clue discuss the birth control/abortion argument yet again. The fact of whether or not “imperfect” children belong in a “perfect” world. It has begun to transcend the fact that unemployment is at an all time high, the fact that we don’t need to be in Afghanistan anymore and other important issues in our country. Be that as it may let me just tell you a story.

In my family there is an “imperfect” child. In fact there were five of us. However, the one who stands out is Stan who was born in 1952. He was born at a time when that “imperfect” child was shunned by society, much like most of them are still shunned today. Stan contracted the flu when he was six months old and to add insult to injury he got an inflammation on the lining of his brain, which left him brain damaged. The part of his brain which controls his speech and motor skills were damaged and the doctors said he would never amount to anything but a vegetable.

The doctors recommendation was an institution or asylum. You see he was to “imperfect” to be useful to society. He has no place in the “Perfect” world. He had nothing to offer, to contribute to leave as a legacy.

Fortunately my mother didn’t listen to the naysayers. She understood that he did have a place, that there is always a reason for everything in life. He has taught all of us more than we can ever teach him. He taught us unconditional love, forgiveness, tenacity, belief that dreams do come true, loyalty, faith and so many other life’s lessons that we might not have learned had it not been for the blessing in our lives.

Is there a master plan? Indeed. Do we always know what that master plan is? No we do not! Do we really live in a “Perfect” world. No we do not. None of us are perfect. We all have “imperfections”. We all have something that is wrong with us. I live in a right handed world- I am left handed. I am less than five feet tall. And no I am past the age of 30 which most people believe is the magic age of wisdom. It isn’t.

Those children whose lives are snuffed out before they even breathe a breath outside the womb are a part of our future that will never be known. Stan has helped form my future. Had it not been for me I would probably never written the first book after my creative ability was squelched as a child. I would have probably gone through my life frustrated because I felt I wasn’t good enough. I would have never known the love, the kindness and the humbleness I have learned by having him as my “imperfect” brother in this “perfect” world.

Read his story then you too will understand the depth of my feeling about the joy, need and ability these “imperfect” children offer our “perfect” world

My Next Event!!!!

 

Yes, I am a Best Selling Author

 

 

For those of you who follow me and love seeing me at my events well write this down on your calender. On March 31st I will be in Cocoa, Florida at the Central Brevard Library and Reference Center from 10:00 am until 4:00pm. The address is 308 Forest Ave Cocoa Florida. I do this event every year and love it. I see old friends and meet new ones.

I will have all of my books and yes even my new audio one. This is a perfect opprotunity to start your Christmas shopping early, get that special someone their Birthday, Mother’s Day Father’s Day , even Easter present. Books are the window to the world and I have so many choices, Inspiration – True Crime- Crime Fiction- Comedy- Historical Fiction and even audio. You see boys and girls, I refuse to be labeled. When one is labeled it forces one to only walk one path. I walk many. My life is so diverse and so interesting that walking one path is like being put in a cage.

I write different from any author you have ever read, I march to my own drummer and some days even my own band. I see the world in a different persepective and I write the same way. My true crime novels are not milk toast and cookies, they are raw, they show the pain, the ugly and the evil of the monstors who murdered their victims. They do not white wash anything. My crime fiction reads like true crime, you are drawn into the book like one of the characters. My inspiration will make you work toward being a better person. It will explode every emotion in your body to the point that when you are turning the last page you wonder why there isn’t more. My comedy comes with a disclaimer in the front of the book that I and my co- author are not responsible for any wet clothes you might have due to reading our books.

Dream Catcher Failure Was Never an Option

Dream Catcher Failure Was Never an Option This book is being used in Floresta Elementary as required reading. When you read it you will know why. The true story of one Man’s Success when Failure was his only option. This review was written by someone who has just finished reading this book. It is one that you will want to keep in your library and refer to again and again and again as well as give as gifts.

Jeri Fendler

  • This is actually my first book review.

  • I just finished a book written in love, “DREAM CATCHER: failure was never an option”.  This was the first book written by Yvonne Mason, Russell graduate.  Yvonne writes with compassion and admiration of her amazing brother and his life long quest to prove the experts do not always get it right.  You smile as you cry, reading how Stan never gave up, and always found his own solutions, as he worked out his own unique methods of achieving the life he wanted to live.  Setbacks never stopped him.   While his entire family, his loving siblings and wonderful father, always were supportive and helped him reach his goals, it is their mother who is extraordinary in her refusal to accept a restricted life for Stan.  She confronts doctors and schools to help her son. Stan himself, his personality, his sweetness, his quiet courage,  will make you laugh with him, and cheer for him.  Yvonne’s love and admiration for her brother is on every page.  Just keep the tissues handy.   First, you will cry, then you will laugh at Stan’s  exploits until you are crying again … as his indomitable spirit struggles , and triumphs.  I promise, you will love this man before you finish the book.

The Last Rites

 

The Last Rites one of my two true crimes. It is part of the history on the Treasure Coast. Pauline Metler was brutaly raped and executed and dumped on Ulrich Rd after she was picked up hitchhiking from Melbourne to Key West. Her story takes the reader from Cocoa to Key West – to Melbourne to her death. She is one of the forgotten ones. Her body was never claimed and she was buried in a paupers grave in Fort Pierce. This book is to remember her life. She is just one of many victims who have been forgotten through the years.

 

Silent Scream A True Crime

 

Silent Scream my first true crime and also part of Florida’s history. Gerard Schaefer a Martin County Deputy for 30 days began killing young women in 1966, he was finally stopped in 1973. He brutally tortured and killed between 9-34 young women. This is their story- unsanitzed and raw. This is so they will never be forgotten again, some of the bodies have never been found.

 

When Fates Collide and When Fates Collide Mardi Gras Bound

 

When Fates Collide and When Fates Collide Mardi Gras Bound- my comedies co written by my friend and fellow author Andrea Dean Van Scoyoc. These two books can be sold together and separate. They do come with a disclaimer that we are not responsible for wet clothing as you read them. You don’t want to miss these little babies and you will want to share.

 

Brilliant Insanity

 

Have you ever wondered what a Serial Killer might have on his mind as he approaches his death? Well Brilliant Insanity is yet another one of my crime fiction novels. It is told in first person as the killer who is sitting on death row. This book has been known to keep readers up at night.  Not one you will want to miss. And definatly one you will want to share. So buy one to keep and one to give away.

Blood Alley

I am a Full Grown Man!

“I am a Full Grown Man.” That statement has been uttered by my brother on more than one occasion. It would not be such an outstanding statement if he were not challenged. Stan was not supposed to be a full grown man or anything else for that matter. He was just supposed to be a vegetable stuck away in an asylum in the dark – while continually pumped with drugs to keep him compliant.

You see Stan is challenged both physically and mentally. He was also born in 1952 when the challenged were hidden away because they brought shame and disgrace on the family. There were hundreds of thousands of challenged individuals locked away from the prying eyes of the public for many years. They were called “idiots, slow, evil, stupid”, those were the nice names. They were laughed at, abused mentally, physically, emotionally and sexually. They were left to rot in a strange place with strange people who not only didn’t love them, they didn’t like them. These care givers believed that these unique individuals were there simply for their own enjoyment and twisted fun.

They were not taught any life skills, not survival skills and when they did try to speak out they were abused even more. They lived most of their life in solitary – both emotionally and verbally. Locked in a world they could never escape from. Hitler used them as lab rats to perform his sadistic rituals of testing. They have been used a court jesters, a source of cheap amusement for those who should know better.

“I am a Full Grown Man.” Those words are such a source of pride to Stan who was born into a family who was able to see past his handicap. Who were able to see the human with a heart, a soul and love in his face. A family who circled the wagons when the threat of abuse tried to enter his life.

Stan was never supposed to be able to reason, much less grown into a “full grown man.” He was never supposed to go to school much less feed himself, dress himself, wipe his butt after using the bathroom. As a matter of fact he was never even supposed to know when he had to go to the bathroom. But he learned.

He learned because he was loved at a time when the handicap was hated. He learned because he had a mother and father who would walk through through the fires of hell to help him succeed. He learned because inside of him was the tenacity to learn.

Was it easy? No! Absolutely not! Was there heartache, pain and detours? You bet! Did that stop Stan from reaching toward his goal of success? Hardly.

You see inside most of us there is that desire, an obsession almost to be somebody. To be better than the world thinks we should be. Stan had more than a healthy dose of it. He was over flowing with it. He believed therefore he achieved. He refused to allow anyone or anything undermine his dreams.

You might say well, he was never told he was “Retarded”. That couldn’t be farther from the truth. He has known since he was a child that he had brain damage and it retarded part of his brain. He understands this and will tell anyone who asks that he has a challenge. But he doesn’t care. He knows who he is inside and he is okay with “Stan”.

But you might ask “Doesn’t he get discouraged?” The answer is sure he does. But on the other hand we all do at one time or the other. You might ask isn’t he dependent on someone else to take care of him? My answer is “Are you kidding me?” This full grown man has been taught by his siblings and his mother that he can be independent.

He can work a full time job and make his own money. He can travel and enjoy his vacations. “Well,” you might ask, “Can he manage his own finances?” My answer is he has someone who does that for him. Many of us “normal” people do. So that is not big deal. You might ask “Can he draw a check from the government?” My answer to that question is “If anyone ever entertains that thought out loud to him, he will tell you right quick, “I want to make my own money. I don’t want to live off the Government.”

“I am a full Grown Man.” – When anyone attempts to baby him – that is the statement he gives. He makes mistakes, he has been hurt, and he has been used. But so have we all at one time or the other. He also has a great capacity to love, loyalty and generosity.

In 60 years he has taught me his oldest sister more than I could ever teach him. He has been my yardstick to success. He doesn’t give up and he is happy by not how much he makes but because he can make that money, no matter how many times they shuffle him around. He has worked at jobs that most of us would turn our nose up at because we felt we were to good to do them. He has worked long hard hours for little money simply because he can. He has been treated with disrespect, and dishonor because he is “different”. But he forgives and goes on. He harbors no grudges and he believes – “it will be alright”.

He knows when he is being teased in such away that is becomes abuse and he knows it makes him angry. He also taught himself how to control that anger. He didn’t go to therapy, he didn’t have a professional help him understand the source of his anger. He didn’t have to buy a gun and kill someone. He didn’t have to beat someone up because he was “angry.” He walks away. He takes deep breathes and he forgives. Simple as that.

All this he learned and he is “Retarded.” Yes, that is the name for his affliction. It is what it is. But then all of us are retarded in some way or another. If we say we aren’t we are lying to ourselves.

Stan is a teaching tool. He is a success story at a time when failure was his only option. His story is one that each person on this planet should read, should give to children – teachers and businesses. His story is one that can change the way we think about life, work, relationships, money, loyalty, and even our future.

No one not even the government owes us anything. We owe ourselves to be the best we can be. We owe society the best we are. Stan is a prime example of playing the cards he has been dealt. Of taking them and making a Royal Flush – of being successful simply because he has a moral compass and he uses it daily.

Read his story, Dream Catcher, Failure Was Never An Option. It is available on Amazon, Amazon Kindle, Nook Book, Lulu .com and my online store at http://thebookattic.ecrater.com

You will be a better person for having done so. How many of us can really say “I am a full grown man or woman?” Really say it and mean it. Age does not make us grown. Only Wisdom and the use of it to better ourselves and others. Stan has it!

The Christmas Present Quandry

Every year there is someone on your Christmas list that you have no clue what to buy them. Every year you wonder through the stores, the mail order catalogs and the online stores scratching your head and mumbling to yourself wondering what you are going to get the person who has everything. Well, this year, fear not, your problem is solved. This is the year books are vogue. This is the year that books can be read on some many devices. This is year you can be a hero.
There are so many indie authors out there who have books just begging to be read, wonderful authors who write everything from inspiration to romance, to murder mystery to vampires to you name it – it is out there.
With so many of our favorite traditional authors dying off isn’t it time to try something new? Isn’t it time to try and indie author.
For those of you who have no clue what an Indie author is – indulge me a moment of your time. We are those authors who have chosen to publish and market our own work. We are those authors who are tired of being rejected by traditional agents and publishers who think our voice is not good enough. We are those authors who believe that what we have to offer is just as good if not better. We are not hampered by conditions set by traditional publishers. We don’t have to sell our soul in order to be published. WE have control of our book, our cover and our marketing. We can do what we want to – go to any event we want to and sign what we want to. We don’t have our books slashed to pieces by some unknown entity just because they want a certain word count. We write what we want to when we want to. We don’t have to mass produce dribble just because of a contract. We can take our time and produce quality work and a great story.
So that being said, back to Christmas. You don’t have to leave the comfort of your home. You can order our books from places like, Lulu.com, amazon.com, Barnes and noble and yes even nookbook and amazon kindle. Some of us even have our own online bookstores, such as http://thebookattic.ecrater.com
