I am currently working on my graduating thesis for Arizona State University. For my thesis I must find a better way for new authors to break into the fictional book market.  I hope to discover this by contributing to the book community.

Ukraine Revolution Continues

This is no longer a protest or isolated riot.  This is a rebellion. 


Over 350,000 protestors have walled in the military base at the country's capital Kiev.

Now both sides are walling themselves up.  But the tension is rising, talks between the leaders of the rebellion and the government have ended, due to "No constructive dialogue."  Apparently the President never met with the leader of the protest because he had a meeting.


Perhaps that's not the way you should treat the person who has large swaths of your capital/military surrounded and under occupation.

Due to timezones, it is now night there.  And so far that is when all hell breaks loose.  There are rumors that the police will be staging an attack on the barricades that now surround them.


Tonight could quite literally determine the outcome of the rebellion and Ukraine's fate.
