Script | Rose | Good morning, Everyone, and welcome to BTR, we are joined by the one and only Craig Silvey | Brittney | Hello, thank you, for having me. | Rose | We are also joined by Harper Lee | Tyanna | Hello, and thank you | Rose | So Craig, let us know more about you, other than you being an author. Such as where you were born? And Raised? | Brittney | I grew up on an orchard in South- West of the black Swan State. I absolutely hated doing our house chores, and would try effortlessly to get out of them. I took books out with me while I picked and packed apples at work, so I’m not surprised I became an author. I went to a very strange but lovely school which was integrated inside a Victorian era, tourist attraction called Pioneer World. | Rose | So, when did you start writing? | Brittney | I started writing when I was 18, when I wrote my first book, Rhubarb. | Rose | So Craig, we are here today, to talk about your best seller Jasper Jones. | Brittney | Yep… | Rose | Tell us, what inspired you to write Jasper Jones. | Brittney | Umm... Well... the name of Jasper Jones began as a name that wouldn’t let me go, so I decided that he would be the main character in my next novel, I also had a decision to make; impulsively follow Jasper Jones down to his glade in the dead of night, or see this book that I was currently working on, that wasn’t going anywhere. | Rose | So you decided to follow the path of Jasper Jones? | Brittney | Yeah... | Rose | So tell us about Jasper Jones? | Brittney | Certainly, um well Jasper Jones is a coming of age, southern gothic mystery novel set in the 1960’s.The narrater is a young boy called Charlie Bucktin, who um who has this geeky presence in the town of Corrigan. | Rose | How did you get interested in writing this particular genre of Jasper Jones? | Brittney | I became interested in writing a coming of age, southern gothic mystery novel, after I wrote my first book Rhubarb, and read To Kill A Mockingbird | Rose | What was the hardest part of writing Jasper Jones? | Brittney | The hardest part of writing Jasper Jones was, keeping up with the characters and addressing the issues that I wanted to, without coming across to negative. | Tyanna | Can I just ask, do you get attached with your characters, when your writing a book like Jasper Jones? | Brittney | Yea I really do, its strange, um that’s they way I kind of know if the book is good or not, if your not attached with your with chat=racters, then there is no real connection with your book and you. | Rose | What was the target audience for Jasper Jones? | Tyanna | The target audience for Jasper Jones in particular was teens, or young adults. | Rose | Oh nice, So Craig, you address many different issues in your book. | Brittney | Yes... | Rose | Did you mean to? | Brittney | Yes, I actually wanted to address at least one social, ethical and moral issue, throughout the novel. | Rose | So obviously the social issue that you addressed is, suicide? | Brittney | Yes, I wanted to address suicide, as a social issue because, more and more people, teens in society are committing it. Suicide isn’t the answer to everything. | Tyanna | That’s right, suicide isn’t the answer for your problems. After reading your book of Jasper Jones I found that bullying is raised in terms of an ethical issue. | Brittney | Yes, bullying is never going to fade or go away, it is always going to be evident in society. So I wanted to address it in my novel. Bullies love to pick on the kids that look or talk different, so I thought that the Lu family should get thrown in there, this being the perfect opportunity to use bullying. | Rose | Yes, I agree, harper lee as a writer yourself do you find it difficult to mention social, moral and ethical issues in your books. | Tyanna | Yes as a writer myself, I know it is very difficult to address these issues in a…

The blame for Gatsby’s death ultimately varies. Many people including Gatsby, created the tragedy at the end of the novel .Not one person is to blame. Everyone that was a conflict to Gatsby’s brought forth his death. To me, the only way to relieve the tension in the book was for him to die. Now at rest, Gatsby can allow Daisy to move on in her life.

Re: Jones Blair Company
Recommendation: Jones Blair Company should seek more accounts in non-Dallas-Fort Worth (DWF) by hiring one additional sales representative.
Problem Statement: Should Jones Blair Company, a manufacturer of architectural paints, expand corporate marketing efforts, mainly in the DWF area, or should it expand into non-DWF areas, which are Oklahoma, New Mexico, Louisiana, and other areas in Texas.
