I want it now!

We live in an instant gratification society.

I'm certainly no exception to the rule. I get impatient waiting for things to happen. I want it now. I can't wait.
Never is this more clear than when waiting for a webpage to load.
But I've been having a problem with my internet service. Every month, the price goes up by a dollar. And the speed is getting slower...and slower...and slower.
The discouraging part was trying to find another internet option. Because apparently, there's just not a lot of available options out there. We did make the switch to the one other cable company in the area, and my head is spinning at how quickly my websites load!
It made me curious, though. I saw a few companies offering DSL or dial-up. Even a few satellite internet companies and one offering something called Hyperlink. I haven't used dial-up since my AOL days in high school (yay! Fun times!). Does anyone have any experience with these services? Are they worth considering?
Speaking of instant gratification, if you want a copy of REACHING KYLEE: BOOK 1 the moment it is released, the preorder price is only $1.99 right now. In October the price goes up to $2.99!
It was Price Hudson's mother who died, but Price feels like it was him. Everything that he used to enjoy--baseball, comics, even girls--seems petty and pointless now. He wants nothing more than to forget his old life and start over somewhere new, where no one knows him and no one expects anything from him.

So when his dad decides to move them an hour away, he welcomes the change. What he doesn't expect is to move in next to crazy, scary, noisy neighbors. And he certainly doesn't expect to become so wrapped up in the mystery behind their daughter's disappearance that finding out what happened to her consumes his life.

What he discovers will change his life--if it doesn't kill him.

The girl next door is definitely not what he thought she'd be.

What advanced readers are saying about Reaching Kylee

"Well you bought tears to my eyes, that was such an emotional farewell. Wonderful plot and sub plots going on and it is now 1.00am and I must stop get some rest and finish the book in the morning...
It is 6.30am, I have to finish the book."
-Dave Holden

You ask about DSL. First, what it is: just like an old landline telephone, it is a DEDICATED line to your premises. Cable is shared with everyone else in the area who subscribes to TV or internet - so I dare you to get a page to load fast during the Super Bowl! Is DSL worth trying? In general, yes, but it depends who your local carrier is (some are more committed to the service than others). Also, with DSL you get to choose your speed, usually anywhere from 1 mmbps to a gbps with several stops in between, depending on how the fiber feeds your area. I use 7 mbps and it works fine, even for what little streaming I do; if you do a lot of streaming you'll want 30 or 40 mbps. Or the gb package, if available in your area - though that's enough bandwith to run a server and really more than any mortal needs. Beware, also, that anything over 40 mbps converts any landline you may have to fiber, so if your power goes out you lose landline service. That won't happen if you take the lower speeds.
