After the con…I reflect with images

First, let me say that this past weekend, Mid South Con weekend, was the most fun I have had in just FOREVER. Before I left on Sunday, I took time to stop in at the organizer’s desk to tell them thank you. What a huge job that con must be for them! And they definitely deserve a big, big, kudoes. There were a LOT of con-goers this year. I do not know the numbers, maybe you do? I know it was more than 1000. I also have to say that Sched.com who kept my schedule updated and on the app

  Okay, so, you guys know that I am going to be at Mid South Con all this weekend, right? This is an annual event. I love it. It is a scifi-fantasy con and so there are always photo opps. I promise faithfully to send images to my Facebook regularly all weekend. IF you are not following me on FB here is the link. I also am planning on creating a wrap-up post for you on Sunday night if I can focus after so much fantastical input. If it doesn’t appear Sunday night, then Monday for sure. Mid South Con

As I have been busily outlining a new SCI FI novel for my readers and fans, I have taken a break to read up on some of the things people think might be a big deal in this new year. Believe me, 2015 will be a year of innovations. New creations, new methods of marketing, new nouveau. Isn’t that what is great about a New Year Day? But there was a video I came across that simply blew me away. It is not a new video either. Posted on YouTube way back in 2013. When you see it, you will

The Passing Woman

The Passing Woman

For an author, inspiration is pretty much everywhere. I am one of those authors who usually acts on impulse toward inspiration. For some reason, yesterday I was struck by a sight not often seen. An African American woman was striding down a busy street, scarf wrapped around her head in a very cultural way, pulling a wheeled bag such as one carries when going on a trip. All of these things sent a chill down my back, and the determined look on her face only cemented for me that there was a story to be told in this strange sight.
