Have a great trip Susan. I love the Arizona climate. I used to live in the Ariva desert in Israel's extreme south and Arizonans there told me the climate is like Arizona. I used to jog in the summer (towards evening) and not sweat . . . at least not feel the sweat, it evaorpating even while surfacing! In NYC the summer is hot and humid. I like dry heat much much more.
Stay in touch.
As soon as I tried to open the YouTube the WARNING flashed that my computer was in danger, so I got out as quickly as I could.
I just heard a news story about a cyber thief who did a huge rip-off of credit and debit card numbers. He was sentenced to 20 years, or two consecutive 20 year sentences. I don't remember which.
As far as the Group goes, here is something I wrote which explains it:
"NOVAE SENTENTIAE is a Group where unknown or relatively unknown writers can display their work on the Group Bookshelf. All Shelfari people can become members of the Group, but only the books of unknown or little known writers are allowed on the Bookshelf. If you know of a book by an unknown writer, you can place that book on the Shelf yourself once you become a Group member. Or, if you know people who write or who have published, you can tell them of the Group and encourage them to join. Unknown writers need all the help they can get to become known. NOVAE SENTENTIAE is one small means. Unknown writers aren’t unknown because their writing is bad. They are unknown because the publishing companies don’t give them a chance, but have closed and locked their doors to new writers. Unless a person is extremely lucky, knows someone, or has tons of money, they remain unknown no matter how good the book is which they have written. So feel free to visit the Group, join the Group, look through the books on the Shelf and see if something interests you that you might want to read. "
Anyway, whenever you have time, hop aboard! We'll be glad to have you. Good luck with your new idea. (Yes, I'm curious as to what it is, but let me know whenever you're ready.)
I tried to go in and then I saw the virus warning. I learned from experience that when you see a warning like that, go no further and get out!
This new technique of using names of people you know is insidious.
There is another Facebook virus or scam I heard of. You get a message supposedly from Facebook, which directs you to re-enter pertinent personal information in order to re-install your Facebook account. Whoever is behind it uses the info for identity theft.
There's a lot of bad stuff out there.
Thanks for your response Susan! I’m re-sending some information about HYPERSPACE because from past experience I know that the full message might not have made it completely through in my Friendship Request. I want to be sure you received the URLS for the blogsite:
or, if you have trouble gaining access,
www.hyperspacethenovel.com (Click “Hyperspace Blog” on the right of the screen.)
If you scroll down past The Truth Concerning HYPERSPACE, there are many excerpts from the story for you to read.
Despite the title, HYPERSPACE is not sci-fi. It’s based firmly on the psychological while being heavily laced with philosophy. Jason, the protagonist, blames some of the philosophers he reads (the existentialists) for his harrowing problems. And he soliloquizes about it, and about a lot of other things throughout the book: sex, the origin of the universe, the paranormal, music . . . and Paradise! But what the reader is reading is the depiction of an individual with a seriously malfunctioning (psychotic) brain!
As far as your own writing endeavors go, I'm looking forward to seeing your published book on the NOVAE SENTENTIAE Shelf! All Shelfari members can join, but it is a place where new writers can display their newly created art!
Anyway, stay in touch and let me know what you think of HYPERSPACE pro or con if you decide to get it! And let me know how your doing with your own book! I love interchange of ideas! I welcome contact and discussion about ANYTHING!
Join my new Group, NOVAE SENTENTIAE, geared specifically for new or unrecognized writers who want to promote their work, not shamelessly, but WITH PRIDE! Feel free to place your own book on the Group's Shelf if or when you are published! All Shelfari people are welcome, but the NOVAE shelf is for up and coming author's books only! When I have enough new writers in the Group I will invite all of my non-writing Friends to join, and you can do the same. Eventually there will be many Shelfari readers in that Group who will have the opportunity to view our work!
Nice to meet you Susan! Yes, I do like vampire books. I haven't heard of Drew Silver to be honest! I will have to look into that! I read mostly YA books or Christian genres... but I'd like to venture out to others sometime soon. But I'm not a big fan of sex scenes in books, so I try to avoid them.. but if they're clean in that area, I'm willing to give anything a try!! So thanx for the sugguestion!! And thanks for the friend invite!! Hope we talk again soon!! ;)
Well I was reading other books and then I was like ok i need to start on Janet's stuff cuz a lot of pple recommended her work. So I finally got to it. I love Stephanie Plums character and Grandma Mazur is hilarious especially in her spandex shorts lol. And I'd have to admit I starte to fall for Morelli lol. Well happy reading. It was a pleasure meeting you. KIT!
