Announcing Gofundme

Announcing Gofundme

“A journey of a thousand miles begins with a reasonable cash infusion.”

I’d like to announce a fundraiser for the book (fantasy genre) I have in crinkled rough draft form.

My elevator pitch: In Terrafoma (the book) our protagonist works to transform the world as we know it into one that might support alien life, namely his own. The quest is benign but he must operate under a continuous series of seemingly harmless lies while artfully ducking sticky complications. To hear him tell his story you’d think he had experience as a fiction writer.

“And madness is no comfortable feeling…”

One of my favorite stories by Edgar A. Poe. It is finely articulate, a shade humorous, and a very even bit of story telling. All this with a horrific ending. Jane has done a wonderful job, keeping the tenor of the text. Do give a listen.

Isidro

This is a Western romance set in the mission days of Alto California.

I originally found this hardback book at a Goodwill store in Santa Fe, famous for having the best collection of junk in town. I’d never read Mary Hunter Austin’s work before and gave this 25 cent hardback a try, (at the time there were no copies online, had I searched). That night, I imediately enjoyed the rare tone to this Western theme and could already imagine it as an audiobook.

Tom O'Bedlam

Tom O'Bedlam

“For to see mad Tom O’Bedlam 10,000 miles I traveled.”

“Tom o’ Bedlam” is the name of an anonymous poem in the “mad song” genre, written in the voice of a homeless “Bedlamite.” The poem was probably composed at the beginning of the 17th century; in How to Read and Why, Harold Bloom calls it “the greatest anonymous lyric in the [English] language.”
