Wes Boyd




As I have always believed. Storytellers, Musicians and other entertainers are only on loan to the world. We have to be grateful for their gifts to us dummies who can only appreciate their gifts. Although most of that appreciation only occurs after they are gone for the majority of the public.

That God his family is committed enough to his memory to continue posting (and presumably editing and cleaning) those not yet published. How many of us have families who even know, or who would have the slightest idea of how to post stories?

Partly that, and partly that they recognize that it will be a revenue source to help provide funds for his wife.

I don't know how many others have been purchasing his books, but I've purchased all of them, and at $19.99 a pop for new releases, and slightly less for the older ones, 52 books so far is a tidy bit of change. So if his daughter and son-in-law are willing to contribute the time to make it happen, this could be a helpful supplemental income.

Things may be a bit sporadic on updates for a bit, his son-in-law is having to learn the system for updates, etc., while his daughter get's up to speed running the newspaper.

Kinda reminds one of the section in Picking up the Pieces where Emily takes over the Bradley newspaper with no warning.


Laz is going to add a note to Wes' profile

I can't think of any news that could hit me harder, even news of losing one of my remaining (but dwindling) family members ...

And yet, even though we keep losing tremendous talent, SOL keeps generating new authors to take their place. Some may not be great yet, but the better authors will percolate to the top in time. For the moment, unlike a certain 'kiddie-porn site', SOL is not only working and making money, but they continue generating the talent needed to keep it going.

By the way, Lazeez, please don't get run over by a bus anytime soon!

I'll do my best not to.

I'm not sure removing the email link was necessary, I believe his family have access to it and they are going to carry the torch for a while.

I didn't remove the mail link. Must be one of the family. All I did was put the last line in the profile.
