An Alien Who Is More Like Us Than We Have Yet Learned To Be…


Yep, this is the Friday post with more Behind The Scenes of the short novel Notes from An Alien

But, first, I need to insert a short advertisement for this blog’s latest survey—do take that link and spend two minutes to share your choices for this blog’s content :-)

So far, the survey has 76 votes and the top desire is to see posts about my writing life

That top choice is bound to change with more votes but I do reveal my writing life by publishing five posts a week here, as well as revealing not-before-published scenes from the novel’s World, Angi, in these Friday posts.

The rest of this post has Major Spoilers so I urge you to grab a Free Copy of Notes from An Alien and take the few days necessary to finish it before reading further—except, of course, those of you who have already experienced the book :-)

In the past post, I Get Interviewed On BlogTalkRadio :-), one of the commenters said, “I wanted to hold you towards writing about the third planet in your book on your Friday posts—the one which could model earth.”

Actually, what I said in the interview indicated that the Worlds of Anga and Anla are “like” Earth, then I mentioned that the third World, Angla, is like what Earth “could be”

Totally Major Spoiler Alert!

The being who inhabits Angla is the Alien Among Aliens—she is the planet’s consciousness

The following scenes oscillate between a narrative that begins in the novel’s time-frame, extending beyond its ending, and the italicized thoughts of the being, Anglana

~~~~~~~~~

The Mother’s purple glow reflected in the waves near the shore, blending with the internal colors of Anglana’s thoughts.

Mind of the planet—Planet of mind—she meditated

I am incorporated into the one called Delva.

Her thoughts are crystalline—clear as the emanations from the Plasma Source.

She will be enfolded into Your Will, Lord of Time

Though she will never acknowledge Your Sovereignty, she will act for You.

The people from the Worlds of Anga and Anla arrived in their numbers. Anglana meditated with them

They feel I have no access to their thoughts without their incorporation.

They are far too young to understand

I am now One with twenty of their number—we are progressing

The Worlds’ Council had no access to administration on the planet without Anglana’s consent. She was not proactive yet set boundaries on their intentions.

The Created Worlds are being built—I bask in Akla’s Pleasure

The Plasma flows are reaching equilibrium and my soul is rejoicing!

Our thoughts will live in the Plasma—become the New History of the Angi System—so many cycles past So many cycles to come

The Created Worlds were in full operation. The Worlds’ government had attained its first stability, though trials remained.

Lord Akla, I weary with their woes—pour Your Grace into my being—create me anew—bless their struggles to understand

They contemplate sending their ships to other planets.

The one called Sena is leading the Way for them—becoming the means for my future intimate connection with this Galaxy—fulfilling Your Intentions

The Worlds’ Council ordered the Other Worlds Project to cease operation—interplanetary ships transformed into research bases. Means were adopted to permit Anglana to act as Angi’s Supreme Mediator. Five additional Created Worlds were constructed—dedicated to interaction with the nineteen planetary systems in contact with Advanced Plasma Communicators.

I am One with the planet called Earth, as well as the planets Zongru, Butali, Wessur, and Fptln. The others will soon join our Host

We are rejoicing!

The Light is Splendorous.

Thy Will be done

Earth and the planets of Angi now share administrative protocols—the Conscious-Settlement of the Milky Way is proceeding

I Get Interviewed On BlogTalkRadio :-)


I’ve talked quite a bit here about the virtual world, Second Life60 posts so far

And, one of the people I became friends with in that world, Angela Yuriko Smith, asked me to be on her show on BlogTalkRadio.

We talked about my short novel, Notes from An Alien, for sale in print and ebook formats but, also, still Free.

FinalCoverNfAAsmall
We really got into it—why I wrote the book, how it relates to current world conditions, how I promoted it in Second Life, the two books I’m working on to follow the novel, how Second Life is more than a virtual “game”—how it can be used as therapy for disabled folk, used to do research for writing, used to relax from the stresses of the “real” world

We also got into some of my thoughts about what’s wrong in our world and what’s needed to heal it.

That’s something I’ll never stop talking about

There are lots of people who rant about what’s wrong and jump on various bandwagons of activism, too often proposing “fixes” that are only band-aids to cover a few wounds and not the strong medicine that’s necessary to enable humanity to reach the healthy state of peace and tranquility

In spite of the serious nature of those topics, Angela and I also had lots of fun in our conversation :-)

Here’s the link to that conversation on BlogTalkRadio

A Virtual World That Makes Author Promotion Easy


Many writers get very nervous or anxious when the topic of Promotion enters their radar…

As regular readers of this blog know, I’m a maverick in promoting and I feel all writers should “do their own thing”.

Sure, check out what successful authors have to say but, then, pull back and craft all that advice into your own unique program.

Here’s a link for you if you want to read more about my take on book promotion.

Also, I do most of my “social networking” in the virtual world Second Life on Book Island.

Not so long ago, I was on the Island to meet a psychologist who has an Internet radio show.

She was checking out what it was like to be in a Space where writers and readers from all over the world hung out and socialized, as well as having readings and informative chats.

She asked me if I’d like to be on her radio show

I had a great time being interviewed by Dr. Barbara; and, my friends who’ve heard the show say it can do two things:

~ Give you a feeling for what a virtual world is like

~ Show you the potential for Promotion in a virtual world

Here’s where you can listen to Dr. Barbara and I talk about Authors and Technology ~ Looking at Second Life Opportunities :-)
