So many of you know that I have been working on an APP for the Adventures of One Sock book. I have a wonderful and talented Artist who is willing to do the App for us. Now what I don't have is a voice for the narration of the book. Someone told me I should read and do the voice since my voice sounds good. But to me, I don't think my voice is all that everyone says it is. I'm looking for that soothing voice, the one that every child loves to hear when being read to before bedtime.

So I ask from the readers and fans out there, if you have that voice or know someone who does, please refer them to my direction. I will send them a PDF copy and await a sample with their voice. I know my person who is doing the App will be available in January to make this happen. Any Feedback is welcome.

Confusion over my book

So I had a very interesting conversation with a friend of mine. She told me she was buying a copy of my latest Adventures of One Sock book for her friend who's child had Autism. I asked what about picking up a copy for her own kids. She paused for a minute then ask that I not get offended that she didn't want her kids to read it cause they weren't special needs.

Now I have been getting this a lot since both my children's books have come out. Now I know my Adventures of One Sock series is based off my son who is special needs, but the book is written for every child and adult to read. I didn't write the book just for one gender, I wrote the book so everyone can enjoy. Now let me tell you, by doing what I did; I was bashed by many in the special needs community. I was told my book wasn't Autism enough, or that I failed as a father and didn't capture what Autism is really about. I was even told how dare I write a book about my son who has Autism and not talk about Autism in my book. Now if your a parent who has a child with special needs you will see some of the signs of Autism in the book, and I'm sure the child who has Autism might see it as well. But if your not used to being around a child who has special needs, you would of never known. My own brother told me he thought my book was going to be different, He mentioned to me that he thought the book was going to be a learning book about Autism. He actually loves both my books and both his daughters love reading them.

I feel there are too many books on the subject and mine would only be lost to others that have already talked and showed people what Autism is. I wanted my son to read and enjoy the book and not be reminded of how different he is. When you go to the movies or even read a book, would you like to be reminded how your life is. No you don't, we all go to lose ourselves in our imaginations for a few hours in our day. I wrote the Adventures of One Sock books so every child that loves to read can enjoy. I believe that every child has an Adventure to share. I made sure the my book was a fun and easy read with many colors. I notice kids love reading books with lots of colors. I had the opportunity to work with Natalie the Artist who did a very outstanding job with the Illustrations. Also need to give credit to the Editor AJ, who also did an awesome job in helping me with my writing. I know I made her frustrated with many of my words. I do tend to mispell at times.

I had to write this blog to sort out the confusion people have about the Adventures of One Sock book. I think every child will love the Adventures and even yourself as a parent will find the child within themselves reading my books.

Now someone asked what's my next book, the next book that I am doing is called "Daddy Tales". Daddy Tales is pretty much my family and how we are with 5 kids and 3 cats. I think everyone would be able to relate to the humor in this book. This book will be more of a picture book, think Gary Larson's Far side book with Family Guy humor.

Once again I want to thank everyone who has been reading and picking up their copy of Adventures of One Sock book. Thank you for your support! Your guys totally Rock!!

Book Review!

"Adventures of One Sock: The Lion" is a very cute picture book that kids will definitely relate to and love! Many times in life, things are not as they seem. On the morning of his first day of school, a little boy named Racer sees a "lion" behind Mr. Anderson's gate. He becomes very scared and is worried about walking past the house again on his way home from school. Fortunately, Dad is there to comfort him and to show him what the lion really is.

All the characters are loveable and the illustrations paint a great picture of the story. A wonderful first children's book by Mr. Ruiz. I look forward to more books about Racer and his adventures.

so just posting this little blurp. People have been asking if my twitter handles @securityfiles and @yuckmouthdaddy are two different people or are they me. To answer that question, both handles are me. I use the @securityfiles for my security book and more adult theme. I use my @yuckmouthdaddy name to promote my children's book about my son's life and on this site. On this site I use my full name and my security page I use the nickname everyone gave me on set "Rj". So hopefully this answers everyone question. To give an update on the next "One Sock" book right now trying to set up with the artist to get some drawings done for the next book. Thank you everyone for your awesome support! Feel free to send me mail to either twitter handles:)
