What people say about Making History: how to remember, record, interpret and share the events of your life

 
"I bought my mom a copy of your book Making History and she loved it. She’s been writing a journal on and off for years, as a distraction after my dad died. Your book helped her to focus and to realize she really had a story to tell. My niece typed the manuscript and I edited and added family photos, and I put it into Microsoft Publisher and created a real book for her for her 90th birthday. She was thrilled at the idea of being a real author, and we’ve sent copies to my siblings, nieces and nephews and the resulting feedback has been such a boost to her self-confidence. She’s already planning what to put in the next book. Thanks for getting us started.."

"Kim Pearson's experience as a writer and ghostwriter has led her to write an invaluable book to really explain ghostwriting as a viable, legitimate and respectable option for those who want help in transforming their ideas into the printed world."
_Jan B. King, Founder, eWomenPublishingNetwork

Eating Mythos Soup Eating Mythos Soup: poemstories for Laura
by Kim Pearson
Published by Fithian Press, 2000
$11.95 plus S&H

There is a being named Laura, to whom people tell their stories. Laura is a shape-shifter and a guide from another dimension; her role is to eat the stories people give her. The stories are wild and exotic, still and brilliant, daydreams and nightmares alike. Laura devours them all. She revels in the flesh and dirt and blood of the stories, and in all the juicy paradoxical conditions of humanity, and when she has digested the stories she reveals the ugly beauty within them. Here are fifty-two poemstories for Laura, stories sizzling with imagery and metaphor and alive with the joy of language. They come from all sorts of people – a gardener, an accountant, a purple witch, an angry parrot, a clown in a bear suit. They are full of hope, fear, love, sex, dung, joy, and guilt. And reading them is about as close as we'll ever come to understanding who or what Laura is.
