Indie FanFiction Writers Publish and Earn Royalties: Kindle Worlds

Indie FanFiction Writers Publish and Earn Royalties: Kindle Worlds

      Buzz on the net is that indie fanfiction writers can now not only publish, but earn royalties as well with the new Kindle Worlds.  This collaboration between Amazon and Kindle is taking on a new approach to digital publishing.  In the past fanfiction writers wrote for just that, the fans.  Lev Grossman […]

The Pit and the Pendulum: Depressive Episode Recovery

The Pit and the Pendulum: Depressive Episode Recovery

Recovering from a bad depressive episode, I was reminded of the Edgar Allan Poe classic ‘The Pit and the Pendulum’ and in particular the opening words, which summed up where I was at:  “I was sick—sick unto death with that long agony” That is as about as close to how I felt as anything I’ve […]

Getting Naked....among other things.

Getting Naked….among other things.

Getting naked, a scary concept for someone like me who lost 169 pounds and my flesh falls on me like a wrinkled elephant with miles of flapping loose skin. It’s a frightening thought.  What’s even more horrific for me–is getting naked in my writing.  I’ve been told (from my now good friends in the 406 […]

Seeking Asian Female, Documentary: Tonight on PBS

Seeking Asian Female, Documentary: Tonight on PBS

One of my favorite documentary films from this year’s Big Sky Festival: Seeking Asian Female airs tonight on PBS.  Funny, insightful, it explores the world of one 60- something Bay Area male who has a Yen for Asian Women, specifically Chinese women. Debbie Lum, a Chinese American independent filmmaker explores the phenom.The take away is […]

Yakima River guide

Love on the River, Fishing

Love on the River I have a confession: I love to fish. I learned to cast to rising trout with a fly rod and a dry fly from a moving boat on the Yakima River, with Chuck Cooper, guide. I swear, fishing saved me from drowning under the weight of children, husband and home in my […]

Reaching for the Moon and Well Laid out Plans...

Reaching for the Moon and Well Laid out Plans…

Reaching for the Moon and Well Laid out Plans… As a family we all are each so different.  Our hopes and dreams are different.  Our goals, different: I want to be a published writer; Dustin wants to open up a men’s dressy casual clothing store and be a published author as well; Michael wants to […]

Poker Face to the Guy on the Right

Poker Face to the Guy on the Right

Grandma the trickster has a good set of hearts to play out.  Got to clear that board of chips.  The hunt.  The game is double-decked, so someone could lay down before her.  Stalking, she looks to her right.  Distraction needed.  The ferret excuses herself to go to the bathroom, claiming she is nauseated.  While in […]

Health Scare Fatigue!

Health Scare Fatigue!

By: Guest writer: Kit Johnson Did you know that farting can cause cancer of the bowel? Or that using lipstick might send your dog Bipolar? If for a second you believed these stories you need help! We are bombarded daily by some new scientific research saying too much or too little of this or that […]

Listen spring, I want to wear my sandals again....

Listen spring, I want to wear my sandals again….

Yes, the sun is out and the birds are awake and making themselves heard this morning, but last night we had a winter storm making it feel like early February not late April, snow blowing in every direction.  I could see my breath this morning and my circa 1984 Schwinn is locked up at the […]

Kickstarter Quid Pro Quo, aka get moving Leisa!

Kickstarter Quid Pro Quo, aka get moving Leisa!

I’ve been working on my novel since Spring of 2011.  Yikes! Here we are two years later and I finally get the nerve to ask a friend what they thought of my excerpts thus far. He looked hesitant, and afraid of me.  “Give it to me, I want to know.” I said.  His reply, “I […]

Confessions of a Left Leaning Snowbird

Confessions of a Left Leaning Snowbird

  by  Guest Contributor, Syl Lassman I’m a snowbird, sort of. Like most of my species I have the time and resources to flee winter. However, there are different sub-species. Most here share a common thread. They tend to be elderly, conservative, religious Christians, and religiously patriotic. I am none of those–with the possible exception […]

Art of Terre Britton

Art of Terre Britton

  The art of Terre Britton is compelling, confusing, beautiful, and spell-binding.  Terre is a very humble soul who does not like to discuss “herself” and when asked, seems to be befuddled as to what to say.  No need for words: Terre’s exquisite art speaks for her. “Spiegel im Spiegel,” which was just accepted into the “Family” show […]

Cupla’s Song “My Stand” a Strong Anti-bullying Message

Cupla’s song My Stand gives a strong anti-bullying message to many listeners.  The indie band is generating buzz with My Stand’s video. Exciting things are happening, many comments are being posted on their official YouTube site, and people are listening.  Word has it, there may be a  possibility of a recording contract out of L.A. […]

About Meds, And How Did That Make You Feel?

About Meds, And How Did That Make You Feel?

by:  Guest Writer ~ Kit Johnson   If you are expecting what I might call the usual article about mental health and ‘how I discovered this or that’ and changed my life – forget it. But that’s not say my story should not lift you – quite the contrary! A few years ago I went […]

Skagit Valley Tulip Festival 2013

Tulips and Daffodils and Iris in the Skagit Valley: Festival Alert 2013 Spring is coming to the Skagit Valley in NW Washington State. If crocus are the harbingers of Spring, and daffodils the precursors to tulips, it’s going to happen again this year. Even though frost made an appearance last night, my crocus are blooming and […]
