Raine's Secret Garden

Locked & Loaded

ripley

Somewhere between health issues, one more surgery (hopefully the last), & daily living, I’ve been trying to get “Incubus” out as my first indie publication.
I can already see it’s not going to be my favorite process, lol. At the risk of repeating myself for the umpteenth time–all I ever really wanted to do was write. It almost seems like that’s the LEAST important part of the process now. :roll:
But I have managed to wrangle my way through getting it uploaded to Kindle. Now I need to go for B&N, & take a look at the other options. And while I had aimed for February 29th as a release date (I thought Leap Day would be good for taking the leap, lol), I’ve already pushed it back a week, & will see if I can make that.
I’m going to force myself not to worry about numbers initially. I don’t have a big name, & there are thousands of people posting on KDP right now. Just trying to take it as it goes.
And I still haven’t given up completely on traditional publishing. I’d still dearly love to get my vamp trilogy there. It’s sort of special to me.
But again–we’ll see. :wink:

I THINK MY HEAD IS GOING TO EXPLODE…

Gawd.
There are days, I swear, when I think I may never want to read another blog as long as I live.
Because there are days when I simply can’t believe people would say/do/think of the things I discover.

Good Lord—is it POSSIBLE we’ve sunk so low that we’re browbeating readers who don’t give us a thumbs-up, and actually stalking their children and grandparents?! :shock:

Dear Author (part I)
Dear Author (creepy part II)

Me?
I’m making a run for it.
I’ll be hiding out at the CHICAS site today.

JUST FOR LAUGHS

I didn’t plan to blog today, but felt the need for a laugh or two this week. So I thought I’d share.
Who couldn’t use a laugh? :mrgreen:

A gem at The Good, The Bad, and The Unread, about upcoming releases…in some twisted Bizarro world… :grin:

A vintage post that Vanessa Jaye reminded us of in her Chicas blog yesterday…see what happens when a group of fellow writers rally to help a friend choose a title… :grin:
CRACKED

NOT A WORD…

I am not going to say a word.

Not a word.

Instead, I’m going to send you to Jordan’s blog. Once there, please follow the yellow brick—er, the link to another rather informative blog post.

If true—circle the wagons, folks.

THE PHOENIX LIGHTS

phoenix.jpg

I meant to post this last week on the anniversary, of sorts, but real life got in the way
.
On March 13, 1997, thousands of people witnessed a procession of mysterious lights above the states of Arizona and Nevada.
THE PHOENIX LIGHTS were really two occurrences. One was a distinctly triangular formation, followed later by a series of stationary lights. Photos were taken, film was shot. Policemen confirmed the sightings, and people came out of their homes and stood staring at the sky in awe. Even the Republican governor of Arizona at the time admitted he’d seen it.

I distinctly remember when this was reported and shown on the news channels, and all the reactions nationwide ranging from ridicule to sheer childlike excitement.
And of course, the debunkers soon made their voices heard. There were even witnesses who swore they’d seen military aircraft cross the skies soon afterward, and attempt to drop flares in similar formations.

So the question is…have you ever seen something unusual in your skies?
No need to label it or go into detail, and feel free to post anonymously if you wish.
I’d have no problem with that—or with admitting that I have.
