Award-winning western and mystery writer Larry D. Sweazy has been quoted as saying, "I like to stretch myself as a writer, to go to the vulnerable, uncomfortable places, even when people warn that you shouldn’t even try. I’ve always been a little rebellious.” Sweazy strongly believes that writers should take risks and challenge themselves throughout their careers. Switching gears from westerns to mysteries was a long stretch for him, especially since the main character in his Marjorie Trumaine series is female, but he knew that as an artist he had to accept the challenge. He could no longer ignore the voice that wanted to tell the stories. What started as a short story to test his skills turned into a life- and career-changing experience. Sweazy recommends to other writers that they go to those places where they are exposed and vulnerable. No matter the outcome, if you know you did your best possible work the risk is worth the effort.
I inherited an ancient chinese Historic Chronicle in 1954, 61 years ago. It proves with official documentation and original objects the Discovery of the American Continent, by an excursion of Chinese Buddhist Monks at year 459 of the Christian Era, 1033 years before Christopher Columbus. It was told in China to a dear member of my family, by a highly ranked Buddhist Priest, specialized in the study of that times in the chinese history. During all these years I had the commitment to investigate every single angle of information; both, in the forbidden Book of the Imperial China, for which I made three trips to observe everything related to my secret story. In Mexico, where the History happened, I had excellent opportunities to visit the places mentioned in the chronicle story
It became my responsibility an the engine of my life, to spread the update of this highly transcendent discovery; when the mortal remains of one of the members of that long ignored and ancient Oceanic expedition; died when a hurricane destroyed their ship, and was buried in "Fusang" the name they gave to the discovered land. His deteriorated mortal remains were found fifteen and a half centuries after, during 1954, when an aged indigenous member of an ancient local tribe, made a hole in the ground to start the construction of a humble home, for his recently married son. My manuscript has taken all my interest and it is finished. I am an architect by trade and it will be my first experience in writing-editing a book. Now, as we all learned when we were 6 or 7 years old, the wonderful experience of Christopher Columbus in 1492. It became my responsibility, to let the the Human race know, that our time of great discoveries has been enhanced with this relatively recent Wonderful discovery. Down an small town in the Mexican West coast, some individuals live their lives and die, with the classic brown tanned skin and the also classical Oriental features on their face, without surprise feelings on nobody, because that has been considered natural since more than 1000 years. Now; What these unique news bring to your mind? On my side I know what I am looking for and feel that my book, called "With China in the Blood" which shows the answers to many questions is trying to fall into the hands of people who love the History of Man, which respects jealously the historic data, and detailed information, is subtly animated with the relative flexibility of the Historic Novel, as the ideal vehicle to spread worldwide the upgrade of this still virgin Historical Chronics notes, with dates to instruct and enjoy lecture, with these good news. This book is written in Spanish, English version will follow public approval. Any formal or Professional Suggestions? Jokes may demonstrate lack of respect and are out of context, I beg you, Please.
