NSW South Coast fires

Electricity (went out Tues 8.30am) restored to Moruya late last night. Our electronics are charging. Limited internet & phone reception here. Other places none at all since 29/30 Dec. Three cars packed. Mick and I staying in Moruya – don’t want to be trapped in a ‘carpark’ of roads out, we’re at home until we feel it is advisable to leave with 93 yr old father-in-law Jeff, Ruski dog, neighbour from Tomakin. We will all go to the Bowling Club grassed area (others there including a man with his goats). No RFS update so relying on smell, ash/embers falling, and changes in colour of sky and sounds for our info. Pray to the water spirits for drenching rain everywhere, continue praying for safety and strength of everyone involved in fires throughout Australia, and that action rather than ideology becomes the new norm for the various Federal and State decision-makers. https://myfirewatch.landgate.wa.gov.au

Why Do Children See Entities That Are Invisible to the Rest of Us?

Reblogged from Melissa Leath – The Go Between: Psychics, Mediums and Integrity.

The Go Between: Psychics, Mediums and Integrity by Melissa Leath


Why do children see entities that are invisible to the rest of us?

As we become adults, we develop a different perception of reality. As adults, we are programmed to discard certain images, noises, and feelings as unreal, especially if they are not scientifically proven or socially accepted. Many of us have programmed our intellect to doubt our intuition. Most children have not had the chance to train their perception to correspond with these adult versions.

Many parents teach their children at a very young age to block psychic images. Humans feel better when we all experience things in similar ways. They may tell their children that imaginary friends are not real, and that visions are just bad dreams. This sends a message to the child that they should mistrust what they actually experience, and instead rely on adult reality. It robs children of a sense of self-trust that they…

Synopsis Do’s And Don’ts

Do you have a Synopsis or ‘mini-story’ – here are some great tips from KM Allan when writing your your next synopsis.

K.M. Allan

So you’ve done it! Created your characters, planned a world, plotted a story, and turned them into a whole book.

It was hard. It took years. It filled your soul, and it stretched your sanity. It was one of the best things you’ve ever done and one of the worst—or so you thought.

As many writers discover after completing their book, they need to write a synopsis; a process that feels harder than typing “The End” on a 100,000-word manuscript.

Why? Because condensing those characters, world, story, and years of carefully crafted sentences into a one-page summary is damn hard. Like writing a book, however, you can do it, all you need is a little help from these do’s and don’ts…

Do’s

Do Give Yourself Options

A one-page version is usually standard, but some publishers/agents do request a two-page option so it’s a good idea to write both. While…

REMINDER: Dear Book Bloggers (and others promoting authors) – Guest Post by, Yecheilyah Ysrayl…

Great blog about ensuring your reviews, promoting other peoples’ books, etc are not lost or removed. Read on for informative explanation from Yecheilyah Ysrayl

Chris The Story Reading Ape's Blog

Hey Gang,

Sooo, I am technically not around right now. I am on a vacation of sorts. I will however dip in to respond to your commentary whenever I can. Thank you for your patience.

Before I left, I wrote this post to share something that’s been on my heart. Instead of keeping it to myself, I thought we could all benefit. After all, authors gotta stick together, right?

Now, if you promote authors then this post is for you. (Authors, don’t go anywhere. I got something for you at the end of this.)

By promote authors I mean that you are essentially doing some form of:

  • Book Promotions
  • Book Reviews
  • New Releases
  • Interviews
  • Shout-Outs

OK so I threw shout-outs in there but you get the point.

This is a reminder because we’ve seen it before. You know her asDG Kayebut I like to call her Debby because…

interview-3Hello,

I’ve been running my weekly ‘Perfect 10’ interview series this year. Every Monday, I run an interview with an author and ask them a series of 10 thought-provoking questions. As I look toward the end of the year, I still have about 10 slots open.

If you’re releasing a book for the holidays or trying to get more exposure and meet other authors and bloggers, this is a great opportunity. Just email me at don@donmassenzio.com and I’ll send you the necessary instructions.

This is a great opportunity and there are only 10 slots left until the end of the year.
