I am currently a 18 year old homeschooled senior from Williamsburg, VA. Over four years ago, I began working on the first book from my "How to Save the World" trilogy entitled "Twins." During December of 2007, I submitted my finished manuscript to Tate Publishings, and a few months later, received a letter of acceptance written by the Director of Acquisitions, Trinity Tate. Along with the letter was included a formal contract to be published by Tate, which I gratefully filled out and returned.
Since February, "Twins" has been undergoing editing, both with the book to come out on paper, and also the audio book. Both were relased on March 3rd, 2009. Make sure to pick up Twins on Amazon.com or from TowerBooks ( http://www.tower.com/twins-t-nick-fensterman-paperback/wapi/113265059 ).
If you would like any information about Tate Publishings, "Twins," or how to get a copy of my first book signed, make sure to email me at: firstname.lastname@example.org and include your question. I will be adding news about "Twins" as it comes to me, and I'm really excited to finally get one of my works out there into the national media.
~So recently I went down to NC to see RJA at a show on the 31st. This concert made my life, I'm completely honest. I got to meet Paula(P2 Apparatus) which was really nice, she was such a sweetie. Then I got to hang out with Staci a LOT! I <3 Staci, she's one of the biggest reasons I'm so in to RJA. ONE, being the key word ;].
Concert was amazing, the bands were really good. I gave Staci a signed copy of my book, she was so excited! That would have made my night, but I also gave Ronnie and the band a signed copy, and he was SO cool about it, THAT would have made my night... But Staci gave me a free signed limited edition record! A a shirt, two CD's, a poster and about 10 stickers.
That would have made my night, but after the show, I got to talk to Ronnie about my book! He hopped out of an autograph line that stretched all the way acrossed the building, just to talk to me. THAT made my night. Made my week. My month, my year! What he had to say made my life. First, he told me how excited he was to read Twins, he said he's a fast reader and he'll be through it in a few days, then he asked me if he could sell my book on the RJA website... ASKED ME! I was amazed, to say the least, I gave him my publisher's number and who to contact about it; it won't be too hard because I own the rights to my book. AND THEN he told me about Grim Goodbye Publishings, which is RJA's personal publisher; he told me that he wanted to publish my 2nd book! THAT'S AMAZING! I have SO many references to RJA in my first book, and I'm sure the 2nd is going to be just the same. Not only that, but as I said, I own the rights to my first book as well, so Grim Goodbye Publishing could also make a re-release of Twins. It would be such a blessing and honor to be able to do this, I look forward to my future in a way I never thought I would.
~RJA <3 Forever~
Long live the Alliance!

Twins is now available for bookstores to buy! And, even more importantly, it's also now available for YOU to buy! Make sure you check it out on Amazon.com, Borders, or even request it from your local bookstore! Twins will only be as big as you make it, and the first ninety days are critical to the popularity of the book.
Thanks for all the support and God bless,
