As reported on by many sources such as Inc. , TubeFilter and many others, the internet is at war with the Fine Bros. and their new MCN ‘React World’. The main issue is the Fine Bros. have trademarked the word ‘React’ and announced that YouTubers who joined their network would be able to license their show format. One of my best friends, Eric Perez (known as 8-Bit Eric on YouTube ) has been at the center of the controversy. For
My new book ‘Stunt Lightsaber Combat for Beginners’ has hit the #6 best-seller spot for the martial arts category on Amazon. The book has been out for about three weeks and selling pretty well. I’m better known for my writings about business development and marketing, so it’s great to see that books about my other interests are also well received.

In the last post I read before the banning (and which I tried to reply to) Admin MacAllister accused me of trying to promote a book even though I never posted a link to anything! Laughable. All I did was point out how her chum was dispensing horribly incorrect advice to self-published authors
