I don't really want to talk much about the elections that we had recently other than you need to be aware of what goes into campaign promises. They are ALL saying what they think you want to hear. It may even be the truth but it probably isn't. It's kind of funny, I get away with less made up stuff in my fiction than most politician's does and I'm writing fiction of all things. If I put some of that same drivel in what I write it would be bashed.

What I will recommend you do for the next election cycle is get yourself informed. What have they really done previously? Are they guilty of what they say their opponent did? In many cases they are and you need to be aware. Remember, all of those ads are created to sell that candidate to you and in particular negativity sells. This especially holds true in the political arena. You don't like what's happening in YOUR government? Do something about it. Get informed. It IS your government after all. At least that's what I read in the Constitution.

Opening a book

Have a friend of mine in Switzerland and he wanted to check the formatting on one of his books that's listed on Barnes & Noble. He found out he couldn't download the Nook app or his book. I decided to help him out a little bit. Might run into a similar situation with one of mine at some point, who knows. I downloaded the app to my computer, installed it and proceeded to get a copy of his book from B&N. I then forwarded a copy of his book to him.

Well, the Nook copy of his book wouldn't open in Calibre since the Nook app wasn't a viable option. For those of you that don't know Calibre is an e-reader app that opens most e-books. Apparently in Switzerland that may not happen though with some books. He put the book on his iPad and it opened right up and he started looking through it. I just really thought that was quite convoluted and probably shouldn't have been necessary.

I'm wondering why it even matters where you are at on whether you get a book or not. It doesn't make any sense to me. You should be able to read one of my books anywhere in the world, it shouldn't matter where you are. That's my opinion any way.

A Spiritus Renascentis

This piece will be published in an anthology in the Spring produced by Perseid Press. It was quite an interesting project also. The Spiritus Sancti pieces have to do with I finally ended up writing. Now that it's complete I'll be going back to work on the Witchery Afoot rewrite. I love the three dimensional world's that I live in at times. It's a blast. It's cool to get inside of a characters head and see everything your character does. What's a little weird is when your character is the opposite sex. We'll leave it at that. Have a great night.
