    Hmm. The question you asked, “Why does prison intrigue so many people?” It doesn’t intrigue me and I never want to be there. I see that you liked my AI Wei Wei post and so, looked at your work/blog. Dude! That’s a lot of years you’ll be spending behind bars. I don’t even know what to say, can’t even fathom it. Now I’ll be going to see the Ai Wei Wei piece with this new dimension to it, and that is, what you have written on this post. Wow.

    This looks very interesting, and I’m definetely adding this to my Kindle shopping cart. now “Why does prison intrigue so many people?” because it´s a taboo subject and most people are intrigued by anything that falls into that category, like me for example, it’s human nature. Looking forward to read this book!
    Thanks for following my blog!

      Awesome! Thanks for the support. Let me know what you think after you read it. Do you think with the right marketing and advertising, it has the potiential to sell 100,000+? My next book is called CHIRPY…THE AMAZING LITTLE JAILBIRD.
      Its about a bird I had for 15 months.

    Why does it intrigue so many people? Because the numbers are growing of so many families who are affected by knowing someone our being related to someone in prison. My blog is about the father of one of my grandsons who has been invade for 13 years and he is only 31. But what my blog doesn’t say is that I have another grandson who has a father in prison, too. One grandson is 17 and one is 8. The hardest part is helping them understand and help them with their friends. The oldest one carries a lot of anger

      You make a great point. It seems like almost everyone is affected by prison one way or another. Share my blog with those in your family. Perhaps a new perspective could have a positive impact in some small way. Let me know if I can do anything to help. Peace.

    I’m truly enjoying the design and layout of your website.
    It’s a very easy on the eyes which makes it much
    more enjoyable for me to come here and visit more often. Did you hire out a designer
    to create your theme? Excellent work!
