This is a link to an ORIGINAL STORY I am working on. I need your help! I need feedback and reviews to help me craft this story, as I will be shopping it for publication! PLEASE check it out and let me know your thoughts!!
I PROMISE that I am NOT giving up on my stories. I just wanna work on this original piece (to try and get published so I don't have to work a normal job! LOL) and once I need a little break from that, I WILL be back to FINISH ALL of my StarFox stories (starting with the Reflections Series, books 2, 5 and 7 have priority!)
I hope that clears things up!
I AM NOT QUITTING MY FANFICTION WRITING.
Btw, I'm back in Maryland if you didn't already know. xD
GUESS WHAT! I now have an official FaceBook page. Look me up on FaceBook as, "Kit Karamak". Become a "FAN" if you like! I hope to hear from you, there!

So, I changed my email address for my Fan Fiction Net account. It's now "KitKaramakATgmailDOTcom" obviously, remove the AT and DOT and transpose them accordingly, lol. What can I say? We all know FFnet likes removing links to email addresses and websites. Also, I'm working on the new COOPER CHRISTMAS story chapter. It's got a deeper meaning this year. Nothing like the prior years' chapters. I feel that I wanted to write something with a little substance. I typically have a cute little romantic subplot thing going on in the background but not this year. Don't worry, Sly Cupid will be right around the corner for Valentine's Day. Okay, so, anyhow, I'm re-reading through the ENTIRE Reflections of a New Gen / Marcus stories. Besides a MOUNTAIN of loopholes that no one ever pointed out to me before, I'm re-enjoying it for the first time in ages. Expect updates for it soon.

Well! I was rereading Reflections of a New Generation and I started writing things down on the side. It's time to tie in parts of that story to its sequel. I mean, the Oracle said he was going to fight some unspeakable evil that would resurface later on and be finished off by one of his kids. It's time to figure out what that evil is and have him fight the darn thing, huh? Also, I do believe that the readers have spoken about who they want Marcus dating. I wasn't going to say anything because I didn't want to sway anyone's decision... but Fara Phoenix has become my favorite choice, as well. I had one or two people say they wanted him to be with Vivian (Lucy Hare's daughter). I had three people say they wanted him to get back with the baby's momma, Violet Lombardi. I had nearly two dozen people express interest in him staying with Fara Phoenix. IT SHALL BE DONE! :D
Okay, I'm going to get started on Reflections of Marcus after a quick re-read of New Gen and what I've got thusfar for Marcus... after a few updates, I'll finish Dawn of Progeny and Spy Cooper. Expect a new Cooper Christmas BY Christmas Eve. Take care and have yourself some HAPPY HOLIDAYS!

Wow. Reflections of the Future has now just hit 30 thousand views. ARE YOU SERIOUS? THIRTY THOUSAND HIT / VIEWS? Yet it only has a couple of reviews. Well, not a couple, but certainly not nearly as much as Lament of Carmelita or Reflections of a New Generation, but you know what that tells me? It tells me that the people who like Reflections of the Future are reading it over and over, every so often. Thank you. I appreciate it.
I'm working a new job as a computer tech for a PC education campus. Some of you might have heard the name, "Johns Hopkins Medical University." Funny how that sort of irony happens... I've never gone to college, but now I work for one. xD
Now, don't get me wrong... I have certifications and I have experience, so I have the job. But yeah, I never WENT to college, so it's funny to me that I should work for one. :D

Okay, Sly Cooper fans, I have good news for you. Stay tuned for a nice holiday surprise.
October 22nd 2008:
The whole iBook thing is coming along well. Musicians sometimes tell you that there are certain songs locked away in certain guitars. They pick up a new, fresh guitar and... bam! They come up with a riff that turns into a new song later on. Maybe it's the keyboard on this thing; I don't know.
Anyhow, I've rented Flawless, The Heat, The Heist, The Italian Job, Entrapment, The Thomas Crown Affair, Ocean's Eleven (the original with the Rat Pack, including Frank Sinatra) and now... I'm going to watch some thief movies. Why? Because I need good inspiration for finishing Spy Cooper! See, I have to re-read it and such... I'm without a PS2 (I gave it to my eldest son's mother) and my PS3, which I bought used, is dead right now. It needs a new disc motor as they don't spin right now. So, I usually play through the game series before returning to write about Sly Cooper but I can't right now :(
I've just updated The Curse with two new chapters and Claws of Fate with two new chapters. I'll probably write one for Reflections of Marcus McCloud then I'll return to Spy Cooper and offer a few updates. After that, I'll try and write the very LAST chapter for The Curse, so it's complete. I've not given up on ANY of my stories. If you're a fan of one that doesn't get much attention, please let me know so I can figure something out. I also need to re-read Similar Paths Taken. I'll probably update the Crossover Bandwagon Story of Doom before Christmas and, of course, add chapter THREE for A Cooper Christmas around the last week of December.
I might get around to posting the entire-completed story of Act2 for The Greatest of Three Evils: Parallel Universe. I wrote it many years ago and wound up using the concept behind it to write both Similar Paths Taken and Reflections of a New Generation. But the original concept was Parallel Universe and that story has been complete since 2003. All of two people expressed interest in reading the sequel to A Family Affair, so I might as well post it at some point, lol. Just for haha's.
All I have to do is separate the paragraphs into double spacing, break the story down into chapters and post'em. I never wrote the third act, which was supposed to lead into the new SF:Assault game. Years later, I wrote a much better series that was very well received by friends and readers. It was called "REFLECTIONS" and I stuck with that universe instead. xD
I'm still looking for a job! If anyone has I.T. ties around the Baltimore-Washington (D.C.) area, let me know!
Also, "A Break In Chaos" (found on MySpace) finally has two shows. My side project rock band might actually play some live music! xD ...For those who don't read my author's notes in the chapter updates of my stories... I'm a drummer. Okay that's all for now! By the way, for the Nineteen THOUSAND views to my profile page, I thank you guys! I know, I know... there are plenty of people out there who have way more views to THEIR profile page. Just the same, I appreciate the attention, gang! Just like I appreciate having THIRTY THOUSAND views to my story, Reflections of The Future.
October 13th 2008:
Okay, so I got a great deal on an iBook. It's got all the power I need at only 1.33ghz and 1gb of ram. With 40GB of hard drive space, it's more than enough to use as a word processor. The keyboard feels great and it was mega-cheap. I took some unused PC parts (motherboard, etc) up to my locally-owned computer store and traded them in towards this notebook. Yes, it's beyond outdated: it's a G4 PPC (as opposed to the MacBook with the Intel core2duo), but I don't care. I don't need it for anything fancy. So! Let's give it a try, huh? Couldn't hurt, right?
I still have a lot to learn about the TIGER OS but... whatever! The shell is like a DS (or, I should say, the DS shell is like this thing, since it's older but anywho) and it's light. Word up and stuff. Speaking of Word, I think I'm going to get word2008:Mac because Neo Office is lacking on feel. I like the Thesaurus but that's about it. :( At least I don't have to worry about this older style notebook when it comes to heat, right?
Talking about not overheating, I can lay this thing on the bed and write for hours without ANY heat problems. It's silent, it works great and the battery is pretty standard to what I'm used to (about an hour and a half). With DVD, bluetooth, built in wireless and a small form factor, I've been really pleased since I got it the other day. As we go back into the season change, I'll be returning to Sly Cooper and look forward to getting plenty of that typed up on this machine! :D
Also, I updated Claws of Fate twice. Expect an update for The Curse very soon now. I've been sick and re-reading that whole story or it would have been updated by now. I might do ONE MORE update for Marcus McCloud before returning to Spy Cooper - I'm not sure yet. Gotta feel it out, y'know? And stuff.
Sup, gang. Okay, so my Acer notebook was overheating. I'd start on a chapter, get a few pages into it, then the thing would simply SHUT OFF at random. Needless to say, I was pretty fried out. I've had no real problems with Windows Vista for simple use - remember when I was thinking about a Mac book? So far, I've not lost any work due to an OS crash. If it happens, I'll switch to Mac... but so far, so good.
It's not Acer's fault - I'm the one who bought a refurbished machine. MY FAULT.
However, luck came across my path... Office Depot had a very small Toshiba travel notebook (13.3 inches) on clearance. The hard drive was shot, so they let me have it for super cheap. I sold the Acer to the local computer store, took the cash and bought this Toshiba. It's so tiny! However, this model was built with copper heat-syncs instead of the typical aluminum ones... Copper, baby! This thing NEVER overheats.
I upgraded a few key elements on it, networked it to my desktop and transfered mah stuff. Done deal!
It's the same processing speed as the Acer, same amount of ram. The screen is smaller, the L2 Cache is twice the size and the hard drive is larger now. This thing only weighs in at 4.45 pounds. Not too shabby! Also, the battery life lasts about twice as long as the old Acer. Don't get me wrong, I really liked the Acer... Plus the new Extensa's have a slightly ergonomic keyboard... that's hawt. I'll also miss the four-way scroll key between the mouse buttons. It's hard to live without that thing - I loved that button. But yeah, stuff. I've always been a Toshiba whore - I always will be.
The keyboard on this notebook flexes when I type on it, but I think it's designed to do that on purpose. At first, I figured flimsy meant chintzy but now I realize it's designed to flex to better absorb impact. And now I know.
Since I became a member here, I've gone through a lot of laptops. I was using a Toshiba P25 S5 series ten pound monster back in the day. Since then, I've gone to a Compaq, a sony vaio, a Toshiba A-10 satellite, a gateway, an old Dell Latitude C800, an Acer Aspire and, now, this Toshiba U305 Satellite. That doesn't count the 4 prior Toshiba Satellites I owned BEFORE the P25... The THIRD one was one of the best. My wife Christy bought it for me back in May of 2000. It lasted five and a half years (and I took it EVERYWHERE so it had a TON of travel milage) before I upgraded to the impressive and powerful P25 S4 series (which was massive by comparison) and later, the P25 S5 series I used when I made my account.
I've finished Reflections of a New Generation AND began updating the sequel, Reflections of Marcus McCloud.
Also, I have really big news! I'm talking to my ex-wife again! Woot! Keep your fingers, toes, arms, legs, hair and eyes crossed! Ladies, keep your tubes crossed. At least until you're married. Believe me, it's for the best - I know from personal experience. xD
CHAPTER 30 OF REFLECTIONS OF A NEW GENERATION IS FINISHED AND POSTED!
I need a WII so freakin' bad.
A lot of folks can't understand how we came to have a a oil shortage here in our country. Well there's a very simple answer!
Meanwhile all of our dipsticks are located in Washington, DC.
REST ASSURED, READERS, that NONE of my un-finished stories are "Dead". I mean to finish ALL of them. The Curse, Similar Paths Taken, Nothing Passed Tomorrow, the Crossover Bandwagon Story of Doom that Has No Real Title, and yes, even my Reflections stories. This includes all my Sly Cooper stuff, my Castlevania story - Claws of Fate, you name it! I WILL FINISH THEM ALL. :D
And Valentine's Day is coming... you know what THAT means, Sly Cooper fans... another one-sy short story, LOL. I'll probably just make a chapter TWO for Sly Cupid like I did for A Cooper Christmas. That seemed to work out very well!
Yaw'll romantics love that stuff, don'tcha? ;)
Peace, Love and Chocolate, everybody!
I'VE DELETED EVERYTHING BEYOND THIS POINT... I'LL BE DELETING MORE OF THIS PROFILE SOON ENOUGH! To make room for all new crap, of course. lol. As of 1-10-2010, I have nearly thirty thousand views on my profile. Thanks! I think I had about 4 or 5 thousand views as of November 2005, when all the counters were reset... so... I guess that means I'm nearly to 35k views... wow. _ Thanks! I appreciate it! Wee!
