Where I am hiding out, for a while... just in case, you know!
(Sorry, there's no room at the inn, but I might share my space with any/everyone who asks, just for the heckle of it!!)
So, I wanted to update you all on the status of my still to be (as yet un-) released book FRACTAL DREAMS.
Due to MANY things, not the least of which is a publisher whose software needs are way above anything currently available, commercially or otherwise. So, having had all her needs finally met with custom made software, she's been continuously (unsuccessfully) trying to break it.
Then we find that wherever she goes, that software is old and brittle. Sometimes broken, sometimes fixed, but still working out the bugs and playing catchup.
The ever popular Library of Congress is currently holding up the works (sort of like being stuck in customs must be) and trying the patience of every artist, author, publisher and fan who have been eagerly awaiting the launch of RedmundPro. So we sit in anxiety, tapping our feet, grinding our teeth and all other manner of anxiety fun. OK, we know it's not if, but when... so...
In eager anticipation of the monumental release of FRACTAL DREAMS and some other books... here are a few trailers to whet your appetites and blow your minds...
First up is a trailer for a wonderful book that I read through, compelled to read on until The End. The book is called GIRL IN THE IRON LUNG by Gail Thornton:
Next, is a very thought provoking book from a dear friend, Liz Campbell. Her book is called A MONTH OF MENTAL MOMENTS. I can't wait to read this one!
Another book in the "waiting to launch" pool is by Laurie Childree, a book of contemporary and relevant poetry called MOMENTS, MONEY AND MEMORIES:
And, finally today, we have an interesting book of inspirational fractal-based art by the emerging artist, yours truly, **little curtsy** called FRACTAL DREAMS:
There are other books by authors as equally can't-sit-still as am I, so as those trailers become available I will share them with you as well.
I don't want to jinx anything, but I have hope for release before the end of 2012. However, I will wait as long as it takes.
I hope you enjoy the trailers. If you have any extra patience just shoot it out into the universosphere to energize any who might need it!
Thanks for stopping by and the very best of seasonal wonder and warmth I wish to each of you!!!
PS: There is a special dedication to Mark/kram in the book. I hope he can read it now and doesn't have to wait for the actual release...
PPS: oh yes, I forgot to add... I have a special permanent page on my blog called MORE STARVING ARTISTS buddhakat.wordpress.com/more-s… on which I want to post a link to any URL of any artist of any medium. All you have to do is follow the easy directions on the post and I'd be delighted to add you to the page!!

(sorry 'bout the title - my code 001(not 101) does not help me here...) Hi.... for those of you who may not yet know, our DA friend TJ FracFx (https://www.deviantart.com/fracfx) is smack dab in the middle of some real bullshit. IDK, if there is a god, does it think this is fun? or funny? I sure as hell hope not! here's a copy of his recent update in his journal: http://fav.me/d5hzjk9 The End or New Beginning? My apologies for not posting in a long time, for those who didn't know, first my Dad died then my sister, then my uncle, then my brother, one after the other and I lost my muse. Last night my house burned down, completely destroyed. Fortunately (or unfortunately
