My First Scary Story,The Dolls…

I wrote this story last year as a guest post, part of a challenge to write something out of my comfort zone.

 

The Dolls

Jillian, my youngest daughter was supposed to be napping. She was 4-years old and not much of a talker, so I was relieved to hear her having a, “real conversation.”

At first I thought she was talking to her dolls or her stuffed animals, but when I asked her who she was talking to, she replied, “My friend Mary.” I asked her what Mary had to say and her response was, “She said she used to sleep in my room and she left all of her toys in my closet. She said I could have them.”

I waited until Jillian was out of the room and ran to look inside the closet. I didn’t see any toys in there.

Later on, during the process of redoing my daughter’s room, the painter called me upstairs to tell me he found a false wall in the closet and wanted to know if I wanted him to remove the wall. What we found was a toy box full of toys from the late 1800’s. We did research and found that Mary was born in and then died in that house in 1980, the year Jillian was born. The house remained empty until we moved there in 1983.

A few years later, I had great tickets to see Kenny Rogers in Philadelphia. I completely lost my mind and spent ninety-dollars on a pair of jeans. That was a lot of money in 1985. Those jeans did wonders for my post “three babies” body. When I woke from a nap, I took the jeans, my blouse and a cashmere sweater and hung them on the back of my closet door and I went to take a shower.

Afterwards, I dried off and reached for my clothes, but the jeans were gone. I frantically searched every inch of the house but couldn’t find them. No one could have moved them. I was alone and my sister took the kids to stay with her earlier that day.

Three years later, I was going to another concert. I was running late from work and had no idea what I would wear. I opened my closet and hanging on the back of the door was my missing jeans, tags still attached.

Many years later, I injured my knee and had to have surgery. I was on bed rest and so bored, so my daughter hooked her Nintendo game up to my TV and taught me how to play. I woke up so early the next morning that it was still dark outside. At the end of my bed, in front of the TV, I saw smoke. I thought maybe I was dreaming so I sat up in bed. I was frantically rubbing my eyes and the smoke turned into an elderly woman. Still thinking I was foggy from sleeping, I just grabbed the remote from my end table, and switched from the Nintendo game back to TV and found an old movie to put on. I buried my face in the pillow and went back to sleep.

When my kids were older, I became a foster mom. One night, the three month old baby we were caring for was sound asleep in Jillian’s old crib in her old room, when her biological mother came for a visit. She was late, but I told her she could go up and have a peak. The next thing we knew the woman flew down the steps. I swear her feet did not hit one step on the way down. “Who is that old woman in the room with the baby,” she screamed. My kids and I looked at each other and then looked at her.

After my kids grew up, got married, and left home, I remarried and moved in with my new husband. Our granddaughter, Adriana was visiting, so I set her up on the floor of my office with crayons, colored paper, coloring books and a bowl of M&M’s, so I could write.

She asked, “Can we close this closet door?”

“Why do you want the door shut,” I asked her.

“I’m tired of listening to the people talking in there.”

Right before I shut the closet door I looked in and to the right. Yep, there they were, standing tall and proud on the shelf at the back of the closet, eight porcelain dolls, two of them, Mary’s.

This is a true story. I am working on part 2…

On Wednesdays I like to share information I picked up on my journey to being published, marketing my first book, editing and preparing to be published again. Information that I wish someone would have shared with me, back then…

If you like the information I hope you will share it!

 

 

List of Book Types or Genres

To complete your book proposal, synopsis, query letter or to put together your marketing plan you will need to what genre or (category type) your book fits in to. Every book is either fiction or non-fiction. After that there are sub genres. It is possible for your book to fall into a main category and more than one sub-category. You do not want to give your book more than two or three sub-genres. It will make it unattractive for agents, publishers and book stores. They won’t know who to market it too.

It is also a good idea as a writer to keep an eye on genre trends.

This is the most impressive, complete genre list I have ever come across. I found it at http://www.bubblecow

What genre do you read? Do you write what you read?

Fiction, the most commonly read genre is stories that have been made up.

Non-fiction works are true stories.

Satire is work that makes fun of someone, something or an institution. More often than not the humor is dark.

Anthologies this genre is a work that is a compilation of different works by one author or many authors.

Young Adult this genre is for main characters that fit into the age category, not necessarily only intended for teens to read.

New Adult is the newest genre and like young adult it simply means the main character is a new adult.

Writing Wednesday

Typewriter Pink

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

On Wednesdays I like to share information I picked up along my journey to being published, marketing my first book, editing and preparing to be published again. Information that I wish someone would have shared with me, back then…

If you like the information I hope you will share it!

 

Establishing Writer Credibility

Not unlike other professions, building credibility as a writer/blogger/author can be a long and confusing process. Everyone wants to know what you have published and where. Before I actually got paid to write I did a lot of writing for free. Some of that free ‘stuff,’ I look back on now and want to cover my face in embarrassment because some of it is just plain awful.

If you want to build a successful career in the writing/publishing industry and get paid for your work, the first thing you need to do is assure your customers, editors or publisher that you are an established and respected professional.

To improve your work and gain credibility you need to write everything you write like a professional. That includes facebook posts, e-mails, tweets, blog posts, text messages, etc…

Publishers, editors and agents want the writers/authors they work with to be credible and to have a national platform. Your blog can be an effective part of your national platform if you have attracted engaged national readers.

How do you attract those readers so you can engage them so you can gain credibility?

It really isn’t about the numbers.

There are some companies out there that will promise you thousands of followers, page impressions, unique visitors and so on and so on but the fact is once YOU write outstanding content and YOU build a relationship with your readers the numbers will follow.

Quotes Goals change the plan not the goal

A few ideas:

  • Write witty opinion pieces or letters to the editor of your local newspapers. Once they print it or post it on their website, you are published.

 

  • Read and leave meaningful comments on blogs.

 

  • Engage in virtual conversations on large websites such as the Huffington Post, New York Times, Philadelphia Inquirer, Washington Post and your areas largest newspapers and magazines.

 

  •  A bit of advice would be to think about and edit your comments to be more intellectual than emotional. Try to keep your responses positive.

It is important to talk to people you disagree with

 

  • Maintain consistency. Post good content on a consistent schedule. (I need to follow my own advice.)

 

 

  • There are a lot of bloggers out there looking for guest posts. Write for them.

 

  • When you write know your facts and back them up with sources if needed.

 

  • We all have our political opinions. Most of us are passionate about those opinions. It is a good idea if you are trying to build credibility to fact check anything political before you share.

 

  • Read more than the catchy headline before you share anything. It is crucial that your readers trust you.

 

  • Get out and meet people in real life. Join or start a writing group. Look for networking opportunities. Hand out business cards with your blog/website address.

 

  • Edit every single thing you write. Read it out loud. (I am still working on this one.)

This Months Press Club Workshop/via Hellenic News of America

Marketing a business today can be confusing with so many choices, in advertising, blogging, social media and websites. The Press Club Serving The Delaware County Suburbs is hosting a series of Professional Development Workshops, “How to get the Media to Notice Your Business, Product, Nonprofit, Book or Event.” The workshops, open to the public, are held 9 am to 12 noon on the fourth Saturday of every month (except December) on the spacious Open Connections Campus, 1616 Delchester Rd., Newtown Square. October’s class is on “Styling or Re-styling You and Your Business and How to Network Effectively.” Having the best look for a person and a business can boost confidence and self esteem. Kara Speckhals, a professional stylist with degrees from both the University of Pennsylvania and Moore College of Art and Design will be one of the presenters. Speckhals works with photographers, models, corporate clients and personal clients. She is known for infusing confidence in her customers’ wardrobes and bringing precision to every set. Kevin Bruton of the “Purple Picnic People” will also be one of the presenters. He will draw upon a rich tradition of quality catering spanning more than 28 years to discuss planning and networking at corporate, business and non-profit events. Rounding out the presenters Oct. 25 will be Bo Sanders who previously led the United Way’s annual campaign and guided the organization’s fundraising efforts. He was the assistant executive director for the Blue White Scholarship Foundation and held a leadership position in government and community affairs at Comcast Cable. Sanders is currently writing a memoir and will share his experience and tips with attendees. For thirty-five-years the Press Club of Delaware County has hosted hundreds of informative and entertaining luncheon events as well as dozens of professional development seminars for members and the community. Future workshops will be facilitated by top professionals in their fields, including Susan Tabor-Kleinman (Your Professional Writer,) Charlie Tomlinson (Custom Communications), Jim De Lorenzo (JHD Enterprises), Grant Gegwich (Crozer Keystone Health System, Director of Communications), Susan Barnett (five-years as anchor at KYW-News,) Jim Donovan (CBS3 Consumer Reporter), Peg DeGrassa (Delco News Network editor), Annmarie Kelly (Happy Hour Radio Show Host) and many more.

Friday Fragments are bits and pieces of your week that are usually brief; too short for a stand-alone post, but too good to discard. Collect humorous observations, “Heard” items, other small gems and put them together in a Friday Fragments post. Then leave a link to your Friday Fragments post and link back to our host Mrs. 4444 at Half-Past Kissin’ Time.

It’s not too late to join in on the fun and we would love to have you!

I am SO behind in my blogging and in my life! The editing of The Stranger in My Recliner however, is nearly done. I missed posting Friday Fragments last week and this week I missed posting Writing Wednesday. I am going to work harder to stay caught up.

* Last Sunday after several days of marathon editing, I thought I better do a back-up, save to drop box and send myself an e-mail. As I clicked on my document to save it, I noticed the size changed. To make a very long story short- a Verizon and a Microsoft update were done at the same moment I hit save. My file, my book was corrupted. It disappeared and I could not find it anywhere. All ended well several hours, only $30 and a visit with the geek squad later, my book was back. My hair is grayer!

* Our Eagles really beat up on the New York Giants on Sunday night. I felt a teeny-tiny bit bad for my son-in-law and my grandson. They are big time Giants fans. Just a teeny bit!

* This Saturday night I will be speaking at the kick-off of a new foundation called No More Helpless Daughters. The foundation was started by friend, Ujwala Dixit to give more attention to preventing domestic violence and abuse.

* I was invited to appear as a guest on a TV show that is created and produced by the high school students at Wissahickon High School. The kids were all no-nonsense, so professional and I had so much fun. The show airs on local cable channels. I am going to post the link when it’s available.

* After the TV show we went to see the movie, The Judge at our favorite movie theatre with large, comfy leather recliners. The movie starring Robert Downey, Jr. and Robert Duvall was very, very good. I predict Oscars.

Friday Fragments The Judge

* The VA messed up my husband’s meds for the 3rd time. I called the pharmacist when the pills arrived because I thought the color was darker. He swore to me they were the correct pills. That night he got sick. I took him to a different VA hospital emergency room. I just couldn’t go to the one in Philadelphia. His blood pressure was extremely high. They quickly got us the right medication and sent us home. I don’t know what to do. I wrote to our state reps and they never answered. Attorneys won’t get involved because there is no value, which means he didn’t die. So frustrating and scary!

* One of my favorite Facebook groups is having a conference in NASHVILLE!! I am excited. I will share more about that later.

* A woman that I work closely with took leave a few months ago because her brother was critically ill and she needed to go to Africa to care for him. She is back and all we know is they are not letting her come back to work…. yet. I am guessing 21 days. I hope they make it 30 days, to make sure. I really like this woman a lot and I am praying for her. This #Ebola virus is so scary and excuse me if I sound dumb but why are we allowing the people who are infected to travel all over the states. Shouldn’t the infected be quarantined in ONE place, like near the CDC?

* My doctor has been out of the flu vaccine for 2 weeks.

* Does it seem to you that Halloween is getting scarier and scarier every year? It seems to me the trend is to make it all about an adult party holiday and less of a fun night for children. I am so not okay with people decorating with severed heads and hazmat suits. It seems like such poor taste. And then there are the dolls, yikes!

Writer’s Conferences

For someone who spends most of their life surrounded by four walls either in front of a computer screen or with their head buried in one book after another, venturing outside of those cozy, boxy walls can be frightening. The thought of leaving our comfort zones to attend a writer’s conference in person with other actual human beings can be as uncomfortable as fingernails on a chalkboard.

Just registering to attend a writer’s conference can be expensive. When you add on classes or workshops, dinner events, travel expenses, hotels and meals the costs can quickly make attending a financial struggle.

Are these conferences worth attending?

My opinion is yes, absolutely.

If you have chosen or you are considering choosing writing as a career, writing is your business. For any type of business to be successful there must be investments made in that business.

Reasons to attend:

  • You will get first hand information from publishers, editors and agents that you will be able to use immediately to further your writing career.
  • To learn the latest publishing trends and other information about the business side of writing and publishing.
  • The opportunity to meet with and pitch literary agents in person, they attend conferences looking for talent.
  • A chance to network with other writers some will be ahead of you in their careers and some will be behind you.
  • Learn about freelance opportunities.
  • Be inspired by your peers, the presenters and the speakers.
  • Social media is a good tool for writers but face to face communication with other writers, people who ‘get’ you is priceless.
  • Because we writers spend so much time alone the face to face communication with like minded souls at a conference is priceless.
  • The thought of attending can be intimidating especially if you are shy but if you can push yourself out of your comfort zone for just a few days you will make valuable contacts, gain experience, acquire knowledge and make lifelong friends.

*If you are not going to make the effort to speak to and get to know people, to put yourself out there and network then I wouldn’t spend the money to attend.*

To prepare for a conference you should have plenty of business cards made. Postcards are also good handouts and great for promoting your blog. If you have a finished manuscript, make several copies of the manuscript, several copies of your query and several of your proposal. You never know who you may run in to, in the hall. You should also practice your elevator speech, three sentences on what your book is about, a beginning middle and an end because you never know who may be riding the elevator with you. Dress comfortably but professionally.

Writing Wednesday conference photo2

Before you attend look up and learn as much as you can about the facilitators of any workshops or break-out sessions you are planning to attend. Write down any questions you have for them. Look up any agents, who will be attending, learn what genres they represent, a bit about their agency and who they represent. Check to see if any of your social media or blog friends are attending and make plans to meet-up with them.

Find out if the conference is holding any contests. These are usually planned well in advance, so check early and enter!

If you feel like you are too shy to get anything out of the conference take a friend with you.

If the cost is just too prohibitive for you to attend a big conference look into writing workshops being held in your area. Check your local universities or community colleges they often offer community learning opportunities that are affordable.

If you happen to live in the Philadelphia, South Jersey or Delaware area the Press Club of Pa. is offering a series of workshops for writers. The cost is only $25.00. There is more information on these workshops at the end of this post.

The Insecure Writers Support Group and Writing Wednesday

Email, RSS FollowShare on Tumblr

 

The first Wednesday of every month I participate in The Insecure Writer’s Support Group. #IWSG. This is one AMAZING group of talented writers. Some of them are beginners and some are professional authors. One of the many things we all have in common is our moments of extreme insecurity about our craft. Another is our gratitude and strong -pay it forward attitudes when our confidence is soaring.

 Congratulations and Happy 3rd Anniversary to:

 

Founder of the Insecure Writer’s Support Group: Alex J. Cavanaugh

Every Wednesday I also share some of the things I have found that worked and some that didn’t work so well along my journey to publication, marketing and publishing again. Being insecure at times is one thing I had to and still deal with in my writing. Learning to listen to other writers, taking their advice and learning to write through those insecurities is a must.

When Your Family and/or Friends Don’t Support Your Writing

 

It is hard enough for us writers to believe in ourselves so when someone close to us questions our choice and doesn’t support our decision to write, it stings.

We need to first consider the possibility that they may be genuinely concerned for us or they may lack understanding of what all is ‘involved’ in writing when we choose it as a career.

Once we have done our best to explain to them what we do and what they can do to support us and it doesn’t work out that way we have to realize that no matter how hard we try, everyone will not love our choice or our work.

When I asked a friend to come to one of my book signings and she asked me when I was going to come see her at work that got me thinking. I didn’t know exactly what she did at work. It had also been ages since I stopped by the dealership where my husband works, just to say hi. I never stopped by to see my daughter at the nursing home where she works to bring her chocolate or wine nor have I ever gone to the lumber yard where my other daughter works to buy lumber and have her sign it for me.

Well that revelation hit like lightening. Writing is my job.  It is emotional and I am passionate but at the end of the day I cannot expect a daughter that lives for romance novels to gush over my nonfiction.

I needed to pay more attention to the careers of my loved ones and my friends and be more supportive of their passions if I expected the same of them.

I realized that when I need support for my writing, feedback or have exciting news to share the best place for me is a group of my peers.  Writers groups, critique groups, Facebook writer’s groups and especially The Insecure Writers Support Group are full of other writers that get what I do and feel what I feel.  There is always someone there with a hug, creative advice or a hand- up.

I am blessed because my family does support me and my choice to write. My girls are happy to help me choose an outfit for a book event but they do not want to go to work with me. For that I need my tribe and my tribe needs me.

My granddaughter Allyson turned 19 on Monday. We celebrated with her on Saturday. She has not stopped amazing me since the day she was born. I am so proud of her for so many reasons but especially because she is such a good big sister.

Allysons Birthday 19

John and I took a motorcycle ride down the shore last Sunday. As soon as we got there it started to rain. We ordered cheese steaks and watched the Eagles game. As soon as the Eagles won, the sun came out. We took a long walk on the beach, visited the spot where we ended up on our first date and then married. For the last day of the summer it was surprisingly deserted.

Beach Goodbye Summer 3

After our walk we went to the boardwalk for the famous Manco’s Pizza. In the parking lot, I was going through my purse looking for quarters to put into the parking meter. A couple walked up to our meter and inserted seven quarters and refused to take our dollar bills. It is amazing how a small act of kindness like that really does make you want to pay it forward.

Manco and Manco

It was a perfect daycation.

Two weeks ago a guy ambushed two Pennsylvania State Troopers. One died and one was critically wounded. The guy has been hiding in the woods in the Pocono Mountains for fifteen-days now. There are over one-thousand cops looking for him. Yesterday they spotted him but he disappeared into the rough terrain again. It’s been interesting following the tweets of the reporters who no doubt are bored out of their minds waiting by the side of the road in the middle of nowhere. These tweets happened yesterday:

State Police will not speculate why Frein is wearing diapers except that they are sometimes used by snipers to stay in place

Thanks to Twitter, I just learned survivalists depend on #diapers and #Serbiancigarettes. Bizarre. #Frein

There were many more diaper and cigarette tweets but you get the idea.

I hope they find him soon and no one else is hurt. Life is really disrupted for everyone that lives in that mountain community. I cannot imagine the fear they must have especially the police officers families.

Today I am going to an alumni lunch at Temple University. Brian Williams is the keynote speaker. Tonight I have an event at our local mall and Saturday morning we have our first in a series of Press Club Workshops. It seems like we have been planning them forever, I’m excited and very nervous. Saturday night is date night and Sunday a Fairy Tale in the Hamptons Party celebrating the return of Once Upon a Time and Revenge. I have never seen either show. I want to watch them both, I need to see at least one episode so I can figure out what to wear so I can try to win a prize.

Have a blessed last week of September, oh my!

Writing Wednesday/ Book Trailers

Writing Wednesday

On Wednesdays I like to share information I picked up on my journey to being published, marketing my first book, editing and preparing to be published again. Information that I wish someone would have shared with me, back then…

If you like the information I hope you will share it!

Book Trailers

A book trailer is a video advertisement for a book which employs techniques similar to those of movie trailers to promote books and encourage readers to buy.

As I was going over the marketing plan for my first book, Bristol boyz Stomp so I could fine tune my plan for my second book, The Stranger in My Recliner I came across my notes on book trailers.

I knew back then that I wanted a book trailer. I wanted it to be a tribute to my brother. It took some time to find somebody who not only understood what I wanted but was also willing to create it within my budget.

Selling a book requires evoking some sort of emotion from potential readers, something that gives them some idea of what is in the book. What better marketing tool than a ninety-second video to create interest, evoke emotion and end with a call to action.

Megaphone

A book trailer is a commercial but it doesn’t feel like one.

There are many companies and individuals that can create a trailer for you or you can make your own using a program like Microsoft Movie Maker.

Spend some time watching them on YouTube to get an idea of what appeals to you.

What I wanted was more like a movie trailer than a book trailer. I wanted to use family photos, family video and an Allen Parson’s song. It took some time to get permission to not only use the song but to change some of the words. There are independent musicians that would be more than happy to write music for your book trailer for the credits and exposure.

I was blessed to cross paths with J.C. from New Pace Productions. The company never created a book trailer and they agreed to give it a try.

We went into a music studio and our niece, Caroline recorded the song. J.C. took the music and added the photos, video and some new footage.

J.C. felt the trailer was a beautiful tribute but it was not going to sell books. I reluctantly agreed.

The first trailer:

We came up with a script, a plan and got some help from one of the most talented voice over guys in the business, Scott Perry.

The second trailer:

http://youtu.be/_6ApR_tV63Y?list=UU0xYCcNFkyYQIINBkrcJA7Q

I am planning to create a book trailer for The Stranger in My Recliner. The last time we just put the trailer up on YouTube and expected people to find it. That didn’t happen. This time around I want the trailer to be more like a short movie. I will embed the video into my website, add it to my Amazon author page and other retail sites, add it to my e-mail signature and use it in all of my marketing and advertising.

If you like the information I hope you will share it!

 

Professional Editing

 

You have created an outline, a proposal, plotted your story, developed your characters, and written your first draft, edited, revised and ended up with a second draft. You had that draft read and critiqued and wrote your third draft. You are sure that in this draft:

 

You have used few if any adverbs

 

Removed the word ‘very’ from the entire MS

 

Taken out every word, sentence or phrase that is not relevant to the story and your critique partner says the story flows nicely, the points are clear and concise and the story is interesting. You have polished and feel confident (even if just a teeny bit because writers are not known to be the most confident type.) Congratulations you are ready to hire a professional editor!

 

Do I need a professional editor? Yes you do.

 

I can’t afford a professional editor? If you want to make writing your career then you must treat it like a business. When starting any new business financial investment is necessary for success. It is the same in the book business.

 

Where do you find a professional book editor? Ask your Facebook or other social media friends, do a Google search or ask other writers. Once you receive a couple of referrals they will probably ask you for a few chapters of your MS to do a sample edit for you. They will return it with suggestions and offer you a contract or they will pass. Before signing a contract make sure it includes time frame (both ways,) charges and how they are calculated and the editor’s method.

How much will it cost? If you are a starving, new writer you may be able to find a starving new editor who will be more than willing to negotiate a great price for you and do a great job for you in exchange for a reference. The average rate is $30-$65 an hour (10 pages per hour, a page being 250 words.) Well established editors with a client list of best sellers will charge much more. This is why you want your MS in the best shape you can get it before it goes to the editor. The fewer changes needed equal less time and that means less money out of your pocket.

 

What exactly does an editor do? Besides suggesting corrections for grammar, punctuation, technical elements and spelling your editor will organize your MS for the greatest impact and clarity. They will make sure all of your conclusions are supported and that you did not overuse certain words. A good editor knows what publishers are looking for, what readers expect and is able to balance that with what the author wants to say. A good editor will enhance your work and challenge you as a writer.

 

Your path from writer to successful author will be much shorter with a good editor in your tribe.

It’s not too late to join in on the fun and we would love to have you!

 

I walked into CVS yesterday and they were setting up the Halloween aisle. Right there on the end of that aisle was candy corn! Besides being sentimental for me the darn things are so addicting! It was the only thing that helped me with nine-months of morning sickness with my oldest daughter (a really long time ago) and also got me through wicked cigarette withdrawals. So of course I grabbed a bag. Driving home I thought to myself, fall isn’t going to be so bad after all.

Candy Corn

Did you know that 24 pieces of candy corn is considered a serving? That serving is 160 calories, 85 mg of sodium (Holy Salt) and 32 grams of sugar (Yikes!) None of that mattered as I ripped open the bag and poured it into a bowl and put it on my desk with every intention of eating it all. I grabbed a handful and nearly re-broke the broken jaw I just had surgery on a few weeks ago. It was hard and nasty. I am SO mad!! Big fail CVS. Now I want summer back!

CVS

One of my bosses from my out of the house job also a very dear friend, Susan passed away last weekend. She was 51. We said goodbye to her on Wednesday. This is the 4th close friend or relative I have lost to cancer since January. What is going on? #ihatecancer

My husband’s boss planned last weekend’s company picnic months ago. He had no idea the date he chose would be the first game and the home opener for the EAGLES. Everybody sucked it up and showed up at the pavilion and there was a huge T.V. set up. The first half ended with the EAGLES losing 17-0. It was a beautiful day and the food was so good the game had to turn around and it did. They ended up winning 34-17! Suddenly the company picnic turned into a real party!

Just when we thought we rid our city and our football team of all bad karma (you know that Vick guy) another one of our favorite players brings national shame attention to our city and our team.

Our star running back LeSean McCoy, nicknamed Shady is a fan favorite. Last week he and a few friends went to a popular Philly restaurant PHT. The server admittedly a bit nervous because he was a HUGE fan forgot the appetizer. McCoy and his party left a twenty-cent tip. The owner of the restaurant posted the receipt on Facebook and we have a scandal. Charlie Sheen jumped on Twitter and offered the server $1000 to which McCoy said, I’m glad you are finally doing something good with your life. Somebody today said, at least he didn’t knock his girlfriend out in an elevator. No he didn’t but I remember what he did doand believe me it wasn’t nice. You see this is not the first time this fan fave’s shady character has been questioned. Meet the real LeSean McCoy

“A 20-cent tip is kind of a statement. You can’t disrespect somebody and expect them to tip you. I don’t care who the person is. That’s why I left my card so they could see my name.” LeSean McCoy

We have been waiting SO long for the new and final season of Sons of Anarchy. The first episode was two and a half hours long and so much happened I was getting dizzy. It was also very gory. I had to turn away at one point. I am hooked though and really want to see where the writer takes this and it all ends. I hope there is some redemption there.
