Princess of the Earth

It is wonderful to acknowledge all I have learnt over the last four years or so as an author.  The biggy is Editing.  Though I am still no pro with editing I am a heck of a lot better and now use three programs plus reading my novel in Book View to pick up errors.…

King Campbell Sick – Prayers please for my client’s Seeing Eye Dog

Prayers from my friends Seeign Eye Dog – Campbell

Plaisted Publishing

***!!!HI IMPORTANTS!!! PLEASE SHARE THIS FAR AND WIDE!!!***

My vet just called. Campbell’s bladder infection did not respond to the medications we were given a week or so back. They’re sending new medications. I am so very upset. Just this morning I had him in harness and out for a walk. He was nonresponsive to commands, disobedient and this is not his way. He feels very bad, and I feel horrible because I did not know he was still so very sick. I’d have never put him in harness and under stress in that way had I known. Please Please? Send prayers and energy? My boy is ever important to me.

I have been in touch with The Seeing Eye and his vet is in direct contact with theirs. I’m scared!!!

I have very little support system here! Am in many ways quite alone! Please? Pray for my boy!!!

Patty & Campbell

Is Domestic Abuse Terrorism?

Domestic Abuse is hideous. This is a good read.

Where the buck stops

Domestic abuse is terrorism.

I can hear laughter or, perhaps gasps of incredulity. How can domestic violence be terrorism? Terrorism has a face in America. It is that face of foreigners with dark agendas. Or it is the face of mentally unbalanced young men who have a point to prove and a weapon?
How could it be someone’s boyfriend or girlfriend? How could it be someone’s husband or ex-husband? Or someone’s ex-wife?
What prompted this blog is news coverage of what is nothing less than a tragedy. This is the story of Carie Charlesworth. It is also the story of an untold number of battered and abused woman. It is likely you know one of them though you don’t realize it. For me it is the story of my wife in the early part of her adulthood and several friends and their daughters who have had their lives taken away from them to be replaced by an obsessive fear. The details…

Sensitivity Readers!! REALLY

FICTION IS MAKE BELIEVE

Plaisted Publishing

What is this world coming to.  I mean really?  Why can’t authors write fiction and say it like it is and do their own research.  Surely most adults can tell from a synopsis if a book would be to their liking or not.  I know I certainly put down books if they are not for me.

I agree with these trigger warnings in books, due to how the world is today.  I also agree with the erotic colour index, so you can make sure the book isn’t beyond what they wish to read. PTSD is an issue which many of us suffer and deal with differently. Please be careful about what you chose to read!

However complaining about the colour of a person’s skin in a fantasy novel is-in my opinion daft.  I’ll make mine green and purple, white or black be they human, alien or a bit of both…
