Another Author Interview

Hello all. Today I'm featuring another first-time author. His name is Doug
Jackson and his book is "The State of America, a Journal by Doug Jackson".
It's published through Publish America.
www.publishamerica.com

Jackson's hobbies include Tennis and painting, and when asked, says when he
isn't writing, he is reading and vise versa. Hunter Thompson, Charles
Bukowski and Ralph Emerson are his favorite authors.

Jackson began as a lyricist and believes that what he calls the "downfall of
humanity" and the problems in today's society are what give him inspiration.
In his own words, he states, "I am the voice of one crying in the
wilderness. Hopefully the reader will get a feeling of hope in mankind from
reading my book."

When I asked Jackson if he had any advice for someone who wishes to become a
published author, he said, "Keep writing, the material and our growth is
what's important."

I asked Doug if there was anything else he would like to share with us, and
he answered, and I quote, "The human consciousness has been drowned out by
distraction.
We, as a people are consumed daily by irrelevance and computers.
Watch someone when they are alone, they cannot be without the cell phone for
a second.
Insecurity has taken over because we do not think for ourselves anymore, I'm
not
sure if we ever did.
Compassion for the fellow human being has taken a back seat in today's
society.
How many days will pass until the actual apocalypse is upon us?
I for one believe it is wavering above our heads today.
Without a complete restructuring of mentality we are doomed.
Faith can only go so far, as the man on a row boat in the middle of the
ocean, praying
to make it to shore without paddling."
