Are you Native American or do you have Native American heritage?

I hope this doesn’t come off as offensive, but I am writing a novel (romance) that involves a Native American Tribe. I really want to be accurate here. I do have some heritage to the Black Foot and Cherokee Indian and my great-grandmother was the last one who could have helped me out personally. She passed when I was 14.

I am hoping someone can give me a little help as far as a few words and traditions. If you would like to help, please email me at tonyawrites@hotmail.com

I would very much appreciate it.

Iron Man gives boy with Down syndrome a very Reddit Christmas

The moderators of r/RandomActsofChristmas probably anticipated having their hearts warmed several times over by all the redditors who go out of their way to donate their time, energy, and pocketbooks to making Christmas a little brighter for children and other members of the community.  

But they probably never expected that one of those redditors would be Iron Man, or that the superhero—or at least one cosplayer—would warm everyone’s hearts this holiday season.

In November, mod Pookie85 posted a request to the r/cosplay subreddit looking for someone to play Iron Man for a special kid:

I am hoping to find an Iron Man Cosplayer near Southeastern Kentucky who could visit a little boy named Cameron. He has down syndrome. He’s a sweetheart and loves Iron Man.

If we can’t find one who can come to KY, then I would like to find one (with an awesome costume) who could make a video and say hi to him, as well as wishing him a Merry Christmas.

We do our best to make the Christmas Magic happen for kids all around the world. This is our second year running. This little guy did not ask for toys, just a visit from his hero. So if you know of someone who cosplays as Iron Man, please let me know! Thank you!

After being flooded with offers from Iron Men across the forum, Pookie85 made a decision and contacted Redditor MartyJMcFly, who, in true Iron Man form, promised he’d “make it happen.” Pookie85 sent MartyJMcFly a customized Iron Man a script personalized for Cameron and his family, and make it happen they did, in a video where Iron Man congratulates Cameron on being such a great kid and promises to put in a good word for him to “the big guy” at Christmas:

Read the rest, and see the heartwarming response video Cameron made, at the Daily Dot!

One of the most mind blowing stories from last year was when a young autistic man (who was a HUGE Packers fan) received tickets to the Christmas game from a generous redditor. I hope everyone can see why Random Acts of Christmas means so much to me. It is the heart warming stories, the smiling faces of children, and the truly amazing generosity of complete strangers showing kindness towards other human beings.

It deserves a reblog.

According to Yahoo, we’re numb to the deaths of our troops.
I am not numb.
I will never be numb.

I’ve been working A LOT on my latest novel.

I’m really happy with how it’s going and I can already tell it will have a sequel and it may possibly turn into a trilogy.

Blood Betrayal:Jude’s Rebirth.

It’s happening, and it’s awesome. I’m so excited.

They only scheduled me for 16 hours this week….

What the heck?

Well, that was a ridiculous spike in blood pressure.

The girl who originally agreed to let me use her photo as my cover art for my book…sent me a message (to an address I don’t use that often, mind you) when she had my most frequented email and didn’t bother to try to talk to me.

After four months, she decided she no longer wanted to let me use her photo and threatened to sue me. : /

I changed it. It’s all down now and I’m going to work with very ordinary book covers…but it’s okay.

I just wish people would communicate with me before deciding to threaten me. Blah.

Max and Kim have such great fan bases because they are such genuinely nice people in real life. It’s as simple as that.
