Hard work but good work. I’m currently on 19th day of turning Manifesting Something Better into an ebook and I think that I can see the light at the end of the tunnel. Been working all weekend on this and I’ve only got a few stubborn flaws that I’m trying to resolve (for previous details, check out It’s a New Adventure)

Watch this space- I’ll tell you when the final draft goes into the machinery and again when it’s out and available

Tally ho!

One of the things about being an indie author is that writing alone is not enough. There’s a whole bunch of other skills you have to learn to make it all come together, whether you have a natural aptitude for them or not.

You need to learn how to set up a website. About publicizing your work. About taxes and tech and ships and seas and sealing wax.

And so, I’m on my next learning experience. I’m learning how to turn my books into ebooks so I can publish them on Amazon.

As of today, I’ve been working at this for about two weeks now. My good friend Morgan Daimler walked me through the basic process, but I’ve come to find out that the Kindle machinery seems to have a very delicate digestion and there seem to be a multitude of tiny formatting issues in my manuscript that  scatter words all over the place (even though this is the same manuscript that came smoothly through the Lulu machinery. Who would’a guessed?)

Any way, the first book I’m adapting in Manifesting Something Better, and bit by bit, step by step, I’m finding ways to ease my book  into the Amazon system.

The journey of a million miles begins with a single step- or in this case, a series of baby steps. Watch this space for the announcement of when the ebook version of Manifesting Something Better is a go

Do you need a little epic adventure in your life?

Well, who doesn’t?

Well grab your top hat or don your bustle. The adventure is back in a little over two weeks, and Foresight is a part of it.

Find us for plenty of neo- Victorian fun at the Steampunk World’s Faire, May 15th to 17th at the Radisson Hotel Piscataway Somerset in Piscataway, NJ

There’ll be lots of wonders to be  marveled at and delightful things to experience. There’ll be classes and adventures and entertainment and tea.

And the psychics of Foresight, of course. We’ll  be doing readings and Reiki and selling my books

And, hopefully, there’ll be you.

I’ll be teaching my Introduction to Palmistry class and Starwolf is Teaching Dowsing with Pendulums and L Rods, as well as the Occult Renaissance of the Victorian era.

Are you curious? For more information on this year’s Steampunk World’s Faireplease click here

Hope to see you in two weeks at the Steampunk World’s Faire.

The weather may be a bit wet still and the temperature may go up and down a bit, but it’s still lovely weather for getting outdoors

And Foresight is on the move…

Catch us this Saturday in the great out of doors on April 25th at Connecticut Pagan Pride’s Beltaine event in Berlin, Ct. We’ll be doing readings and Reiki and selling my books there.

I’ll also be teaching a class on Dream Interpretation. One of the first places most of us get in touch with our natural psychic ability is through our dreams, and I’ll be teaching you an easy, fun and practical way to know what your dreams are telling you.

There will also be a lot of other fun classes and activities as well, along with a really nice group of people

As this event is a fund raiser for Ct Pagan Pride, they’ll looking for a $5 donation for the day, and they’ll be collecting donations for the local food pantry and animal shelters as well.

For more information on both the donations and the event itself, please click here

And we hope to see you at CTPP’s Beltaine

A few years ago, I did an online search on the topic of renaissance faires. I was surprised to find that a majority of what I could find online fell under three topics

Now those are all important topics, but there’s  a whole lot more to ren faires than just that.

And so, in the interest of spreading knowledge, I wrote a few articles and then moved on to another project.

I got to thinking about that lately and so I did another search, and you know what I found (other than my own articles, of course) ?

  • Information about specific faires (such as the Connecticut Renaissance Faire or the Midsummer Fantasy Renaissance Faire)
  • Information on what to wear at a renaissance faire
  • And articles about “My first visit to a renaissance faire”

Hmmm. Guess there’s still a need here.

So now I’m thinking of doing a small book about the other aspects of ren culture, like immersive entertainment, how to “speak foresoothly”  and what to expect at your first faire. I want to keep this a relatively short book, so I can keep it affordable, but I want to hit the points that people most need to know to have a great faire, no matter where they go.

And I’d like your input. What would you like to see in this kind of book? What information would be the most important to you?

Please comment on this post. Your input will help me to make this the most useful book possible

Thanks

When you’re creating a physical book, there are certain things that go at the front of the book before you get into the meat of the story or manuscript. When I’m setting up my template, I’ll finalize these when I’m closer to publication, but I start out by putting in place holders for the different pages, so I don’t miss anything when I go to finish the book.

I’ll change the color of the text, make it bold or italic, or do something else to indicate that these are unfinished pages that need to be completed. The pages I’ll put in are

  • Two blank end papers, labelled Blank (These can be omitted, but you’ll tend to see them in traditionally published books, and they give you a good place to autograph your work, so I’d include them.)
  • Pages for testimonials about this book, if you have them
  • Pages for testimonials about any other books you’ve written (I tend to have 2 for the present book and 2 for all of my other books at this point, but do what works for you)
  • Simple title page- just the title
  • “Also by” page with the names of any books you have out
  • Full title page- title, author, publisher
  • copyright page- date, statement about no reproduction without permission, ISBN number, publisher again
  • dedication page- (for the person you want to specifically honor with this book)
  • acknowledgements (other people who helped that you want to say thanks to)
  • Table of Contents

After that, I usually do a section break, so the book itself starts in a new section. Once I do that section break, I start numbering the first page of the book itself “1”

This is the basic list. If you have questions about what to put more specifically on these pages, looking at other books should give you some ideas

This is how you do this for a physical book, It’s a little different for an e- book, but we’ll talk about that in a future post
