Ghost Signal from Colorado Springs

My latest release! Ink is still wet!

Number 26 is published on both Amazon and Smashwords!!!!

After three months of toiling away over a hot keyboard, I put the finishing touches on it last night about 2 am!

Folks this is amazing!  I love how this book unfolded and how it turned out! “So will you.”

I believe that there is a niche market where science fiction and romance conjoin to make a good story.

I love romance stories, and l love Science Fiction.  It seems only natural to write a story that has both elements in it.

Unlike Saga of the Starduster, this one is YA.  Yes, there is implied sex but, nothing explicit. I think a young adult can handle that.

So let me tell you a little about this novel.

In a galaxy far far away …” too much?” There is a planet that is orbiting a binary star.  This binary sun is getting closer and closer to the other sun which they fear will Nova taking out the solar system.

What they do not realize is that Nova is not what they need to fear, if the two become one it turns into a magnatar which is deadly for the entire area. Not just that one solar system.

Anyway, they send out ships to find a new place to live.

There is a catch… A race of advanced beings with the weaponry to back it up have dubbed themselves the universal police.  They have laws which forbid contact with worlds that are pre-space.  Yea, I know that trope has been used before, but it is a good one.

The first race, the Bindane find the Earth.  Landing they find cave dwellers.  These creatures look little like what we do today.  Smaller brains, much hair, no verbal communication and oh yes, they will eat one another if they are hungry.

The Bindane are in a quandary, do we stay here and work with them, or keep looking…

They had been in space for many years.  Some of the Bindane leave without permission and have at it with the locals.  Flying around in their smaller ships, they explore much of the world and conquer it.  Having sex with who they choose soon human Bindane hybrids are running around.

Humans with an IQ of 60 and Bindane with an IQ of 250, you can quickly see what is going to happen.  The hybrids all of the sudden can solve puzzles, invent tools and find more efficient ways to kill.  This is why the Xylars, (other race) forbid this kind of activity.

Intelligence without wisdom and empathy make for smart evil people. Unless love is the foundation for who or what you are, the rest is meaningless.

Without giving away the story, it is an inexpensive read! $2.99 from either Smashwords or Amazon!

This book is well worth your time and I encourage you to check it out and please give me feedback.

I was going to write about Grammarly but I think writing about my newest release is a better use of my time.  I have some new tricks with Grammarly I am going to share with you in the days to come.  Is that a tease or what?

Yes, I want you to come back and I want you to tell your friends or family or even your mother In law!

You might like your mother in law… LOL

I will love your mother in law for some feedback… 🙂

We writers cannot rest on our laurels, however.  I already have an idea for #27 and I have an idea for a screenplay.  Which should I do first?

We Will Not Go Silently Into the Night

The history of humanity is punctuated with evil events perpetrated by despots from all walks of life.  The appeasers or pacifist are usually the first to succumb to the intent of barbarians.

History is replete with examples of genocide.

Torture, rape, murder in the most insidious of ways lie deep within the heart of man.  To take delight in the torture or killing of another is just evil.  We are all affected by this.  If you watch movies depicting such things and take some pleasure in it, the works of evil resonated with that part of you that is evil.

If you are human, you are not immune to its sway.

That is one reason that violent video games are so prevalent today. People can feed that part of them that is evil without actually killing people.  Much like the plant in the little shop of horrors.  Seymour had to feed it to keep it alive.  The evil that lives in your soul must be fed to keep it alive.  Don’t put that garbage into your head! Defeat it with love!

From the earliest of days of recorded history, the meek, weak, or ignorant, are silenced by death or forced into slavery by megalomaniacs.  That is one reason why we should never tear down statues, as history is a blueprint for the future.  You cannot know where to go if you don’t know where you have been. With history obliterated by the autocrats, you now must trust them, which is foolish.

The difference between animal and man is a man should be able to keep his proclivities for evil in check.

Sutherland

Six days ago we saw an animal unleash hell on earth inside a house of worship, virtually exterminating a church.  The tiny town in south Texas will probably never be the same, as this agent of the devil himself did more damage to not only family and friends, the town, and even the state, but to Christianity as a whole.

If we were to take a census of the believers that attend tomorrow the 12th, one has to wonder what we would find.  I hope that I am wrong, but I suspect many will elect to stay home.

We are in a war, and the enemy is winning.

The minions of evil are out to destroy our history, thus making our future malleable to their twisted idea of what it now must be.

No one race holds the ownership of the word or title of slave.  All races have suffered under the brutality of those in power.  Even Joseph suffered and was sold into slavery by his own blood, so many thousands of years ago.  Slavery existed on every continent with all peoples either being the gods or the insects.

On this Veteran’s day, we salute the men and women who have ever worn the uniform, or who currently are wearing it.  Those brave people keep the megalomaniacs of modern day, at bay.

No more will we see a Hitler or Genghis Khan murder millions for their own twisted sense of glory.  While some tyrants still breath air on this planet, good will overcome evil, and they will be defeated. We can only pray that good will keep that darkness from having its way over the multitudes of slaves in those faraway lands.

What can you do?

Stand up for what is right.  Do not let your voice be drowned by the masses chanting for the dumbing down of the people.  History whether pleasant or not is what it is.  History must be sacrosanct, and not blotted out by the will of those that seek to change it, for some ideological ends.

Understand that you are not immune from evil or those that practice it. Arm yourself and demand that you can do so if you so choose.

Evil is determined and will find a way.  The police respond on average 11 minutes after the call is placed.  A lot can happen in 11 minutes.  First, someone has to make the call, who is it?  Is it a neighbor that hears the gunshots or screaming, or is it some survivor gasping for their last breath of air?

Do not be a conformist! Guns are not evil, they are a tool much like a hammer or saw.

You can belong to God without letting evil win. Heaven is a great destination, but life is about the journey, not about how fast you can get there.

A word about Hugh.

 

I myself have or had little use for or knowledge of Hugh Hefner.

I have read through his magazines over the years as some of the articles were, well written.

As an artist, I found his models posed for the most part in a respectful/artistic way.  Unlike the porn we have today which is hard not to stumble over on the internet, Playboy was rather bland in comparison.

As a mature person, I remember some of the early magazines with clover leafs over nipples, and what have you.

If a (person) makes a conscious decision to model for a magazine like his, who are we to say anything? Our first lady was a model of impeccable taste.

As many of you know, I worked in the Advertising industry for years.  Sex Sells!

We, humans, are geared for sex. Men are more visual creatures and I can tell you that the advertising industry knows that all too well.

მაგარი ქალი და მაგარი მანქანა

Hugh knew it too and made his fortune selling the sizzle and not the steak.  Hugh sold the fantasy and portrayed that fantasy in his silk robe and pipe.  That fantasy sold millions of magazines and to be absolutely fair, started many young ladies careers.

hugh

The Religious folks are now trashing him on social media and folks, his sin was no worse than theirs or mine or yours. Sin is sin is sin!  Unless you are Jesus Christ himself, you are a sinner! If you feel differently, you clearly don’t understand sin.

To judge this man is not their job, that job is reserved for God.

To judge me, or other writers who might write some tawdry novel is not your job, or theirs.  It is gods Job, and I am ok with it.

I talk about marketing and what sells.  Sex sells not only in a visual medium like the centerfold, but it sells in my novels where I paint a picture with words that are what?  They are a fantasy for you to enjoy.

Some folks are so hypocritical.  One of my friends was upset with her husband because she caught him looking at pornography on the internet.  Sticking out of her purse was a copy of 50 shades.

50 shades

To me, that is like having a diet coke with a slice of German chocolate cake thinking that will help with your diet.

I can paint some pretty graphic pornography with words as can many of you.  Porn is porn and your sin is no less sinful than his.  Men are visual and women well, like their porn too, they just like it disguised in romance novels.  The idea of being held down while the burly stranger that you have been teasing with rips your silky panties off you is…porn.

I am reminded about casting the first stone and me for one live in a glass house, as do you.

Hugh lived a life that most men only dream of, I would guess.  He had 7 girlfriends at one time and I would bet it was not all peaches and cream.  I can say that because I have read the bible several times and King Solomon had several hundred wives and several hundred Concubines.  Can you imagine what his household was like?

Judge not should be all of our mantras, it is certainly mine.

Whether you are a “religious” person or not, judging others is not our job.   For the religious right to call him the names that I am reading is just wrong.  My theory is that they are jealous of what he had and what he did in his 90 odd years so they are using the bible to beat their chest while being a bully to those who don’t know all of the facts.  They are wrong on many levels, and it is sad.  It is actually a sad day for Christianity as it is a terrible role model of what Christ was about.

I understood Hugh did many good things with his wealth while he was alive, so again, judge not.

God has this….

I for one believe that one day we might meet one another. I will shake his hand if he/we indeed have hands in heaven.

If you just muttered under your breath that we will meet in hell, man, examine your soul!

RIP Hugh.

“Real Christians” follow the rules of Jesus”

 

Driving the rural countryside the other day I saw this billboard.  Not some tiny little sign off the side of the road but an honest to goodness billboard.

“Real Christians” follow the rules of Jesus”

“Rules, Jesus?”

What does that mean exactly?

Maybe this is just me but, I see this sign right up there with those who parade around holding signs saying that God hates Fags.

First off I have no idea what a “real Christian is.”  I don’t, do you?

To those of us who have an intellect that is at least twelfth grade and have read the Bible, there are really few rules to it to be a Christian.

The first and most controversial of them is, that you are called.

Does that mean that your cell phone will come up with this number 1-800 H-E-A-V-E-N?  ( Yea I know it is missing a digit, but it is God after all so he can so have a unique number.)  “By the way, if he ever sends you a card, save the stamp!”

How can you tell if you are called?

Do you have a desire to learn more?

Have you been putting off picking up the book or going to church with a friend?

There are many ways to be called and not one of them is cast in stone.

“You must profess that Jesus is your salvation.  He paid the price for any sin you ever did, or will do.”

Read that last part again, “or will do.”   He knew you before you were born and created you anyway.

How do we know that; the Bible tells us so.”

You are either a Christian, or you are not.  I don’t understand how someone can try and decipher levels of Christianity! It is not biblical. Therefore they do not exist.

I deal with this topic in many of my books.  Bigots who hide behind the bible do a disservice to others.  They give Christianity a bad name with their warped understanding of it.  If you are sitting there thinking it is my understanding that is warped, think again….  People are famous for taking things out of context and making the Bible say things that it does not.

The early church made it illegal for you to own a Bible.

Now keep in mind that the early church was not only your spiritual guidance, they were also the educators, and most importantly the government!  Yea, if you disagreed with them, it was bad news for you!

Juxtaposing LGBT and Christianity has been a fine tight wire to walk.  I deal with this in many of my novels, Diamond Joe being the latest.  It is not the overarching theme of any of my novels, but I deal with it as many are on the fence and honestly need to hear something other than “God Hates Fags!”

It is simply not the case!  Anyone who does something to cause someone to turn away from him is actually in more hot water than your average sinner.   Christians are called to love the sinner and not the sin.  That is it, end of story!  Your sexual preference does not make a difference, you are no different than any of the other sinners in any of those buildings we call churches.  That in itself is another misnomer as the “church” are the saints or the body of believers, not the damned building!

I just released Diamond Joe, and people are buying it all over the world, go check it out and tell me what you think.  Some of the first e-mails in are super positive!

Tell me your thoughts on this blog.  No hate please, the world is full enough of that.  I will not tolerate it here or in my life.

Constructive criticism or honest disagreement I can handle.  Spewing vile rhetoric under some pseudonym, save your breath.
