Home – OGSB Authors with W.D. Edmiston

This site and the idea of OGSB is something I came upon during the process of creating a simple blog for my next book. Instead, of a single blog site, I decided to create a site with Associate Authors, Guest Authors and a blog for the OSGB project. This means all of us get to capitalize on the bones or structure of book marketing without doing it all ourselves. It also gives us the opportunity to support each other with research, co-writing, and generation of ideas You should benefit from not only the writing of different genres but from those connections we make with guest writers and photographers we offer here. Thanks for the add – we will not bother you daily with things to say. We will tell you about great writers, art, and good books. On my blog I will try to tell you what I know about having lived in a precarious occupation, a couple of risky businesses, and managing sales and marketing in a publicly traded company. WDE

These are the first two published works of W.D. Edmiston, MSCJ

The first book, released in 2007 was written after the date of his son who got lost in the alternate reality of online sites and took a final action based on what was going on in his online world to end his life in his real world. That book predicted all of the problems and more that had been recognized about online activity like addiction to the internet, shaming, bullying and others. Those were finally being “discovered” by American media by 2016 and decried as national problems. J North

The second book Looking Backward, Forward is a book written after further contemplation and research by the Master’s Degree toting police executive. He has advanced training in behavioral analysis, aberrant behavior, social work and two undergraduate degrees in Marketing and Social Work (Sociology) forming the basis of his interpretation of the dangers of online use by America’s youth. An idea about the Pervasively Vegetative Adolescent he talked about in the first book he developed into the Adult Arrested Adolescent or TriA concept. Like when we worked together, he built his case like an complex investigation. Any way you write it up, the TriA looks like adolescence or juvenile delinquency – even if they did make us quit using that term. Our adult progressive society behave in their thinking, actions and angry depression like adolescents. He makes the case that TriA is a behavioral disorder much like OCD. You see it all the time on Facebook in memes like “I am not adulting today” and college aged children needing safe places and therapy because they are just throwing a tantrum. I think he is on to something. Spence Allen
