Earth Allies small

I had the pleasure to make the front and back cover for this book, also a little treat inside. It has been a journey to make all these drawings and under the guidance by my good friend Vanessa, I made these drawings with guided colors. I hope you enjoy the story as much as I did. I think it is a story for the whole family.

I would like to ask you to sponsor this incredible gifted writer, so that her dream can come true. Publishing this story in hardcover. You can buy this e-book on: Amazon.com

What are your ambitions for your writing career?

Vanessa:   I see myself writing more books. I can’t say how many or how often but, I plan to write when I’m compelled to spread a message. I have a few ideas and a message for future writings.  In fact, I have already started on another book.  It’s a slow process because I want it to evolve into the story that needs to be told.

Which writers inspire you?

Vanessa: I can’t say that any one writer inspires me. I enjoy reading a variety of works by various authors with their own unique writing styles.

In response to your question – my esoteric beliefs and my need to spread a message of love inspired me to write Earth Allies.

So, what have you written?

Vanessa:  I haven’t written much. I’m a novice. Through the years I’ve written a few poems. One of my poems, Lonely Heart, is published in the Silent Journey, a compilation by the International Library of Poetry.  I wrote a short story for my youngest daughter, Lacee’s Back Yard Adventure.  I may reinvent it and publish it as an e-book.

Presently I’m preparing my e-book, Earth Allies for publication. It’s a short story for kids ages 9 to 13.  Earth Allies is about a young boy who joins with fairies to prevent a worldwide disaster.  If all goes according to plan Earth Allies will be published this year.  I am going to independently publish and the process from beginning to end could take up to three months, which is great.  If I were to traditionally publish my book it could take as long as eighteen months before it is actually published.
Where can we buy or see them?

Vanessa:  

Earth Allies is available as an e-book on Amazon.com/US; Amazon.com/UK; Amazon.com/CA; and Amazon.com/AU.

My poem, Lonely Heart, is published in the The Silent Journey, a compilation by the International Library of Poetry. It’s also on Amazon.

 

Give us insight into your main character.

Vanessa:  Eleven year old Ethan is the main character.  He is somewhat of a loner. Ethan is very loving and compassionate.   He helps is mother with his litter sister and chores around the house.  He is also a good friend.  Because of his loving nature and pure heart he possesses the ability to facilitate a remarkable event.

What genre is your book and what draws you to it?

Vanessa:  My book is fiction. I’m drawn to fiction because I can really let my imagination rule the pen.  I find when I’m in that zone, my imagination takes over and writing comes easy.

Tell us about the book cover and who designed it?

Vanessa:  Well, I actually have two different book covers.  Initially, I asked you Lisa to create my book cover.  Lisa’s art is beautiful and I knew she could capture what I wanted to convey on the cover.  When I asked Lisa to do the cover, she accepted and offered her service as a gift.  I was very touched by her loving, generous nature.  It’s not often that I am the recipient of such a kind gesture and I am very grateful.

I had set a deadline for myself to publish my story as an e-book.  As I got closer to the deadline the cover wasn’t ready.  Lisa was ill and couldn’t work on the book cover.   I told her to take care of herself and that I would get someone else to do the cover.  I didn’t want Lisa to feel pressured to get the book cover done when she was dealing with a health issue.  So, I found Digital Donna.  Her work was good but it was not exactly what I wanted.

I launched the e-book last year on Amazon and soon realized I needed to change the book cover. After seeing some of the other books and the book cover design, I knew I had to replace the book cover on Earth Allies.

I don’t remember the sequence of events but Lisa and I talked after she was on the road to recovery. It was then that I realized I had hurt my sweet friend’s feelings when I decided to get another illustrator for my book.  I felt really bad.  My intention was to release Lisa from feeling obligated to do the book cover since she was ill. I was only concerned for her well-being. We cleared up the misunderstanding and Lisa still wanted to do the illustration.  She asked questions about the story to get a feel for what I wanted. Lisa created the book cover, interior boarder and the back cover.  I am so happy with her illustrations.  Lisa’s drawings depict what my imagination gave me for the illustrations. This venture is a first for both of us.  Lisa’s beautiful work is getting more exposure and I believe the book cover will catch the eye of kids 9 – 13 years old, drawing them to read my book.

I’m very fortunate to have Lisa as my friend.  She is a talented artist.

Do you think the cover plays an important part in the buying process?

Vanessa:  Yes, absolutely.  The cover has to be eye catching.  Especially when writing children’s books. The cover has to grasp their attention to get them to read the book.  It has to stimulate their imagination.

How are you publishing your book and why?

Vanessa:  I wanted to take the traditional route but after researching and comparing the pros and cons of traditional publishing and independent publishing, I decided to independently publish my book.  It’s not easy to get a book traditionally published.  It involves quite a process.

When did you decide to become a writer?

Vanessa:  I didn’t set out in life wanting to become a writer.  I’ve written stories and poems as a hobby, and as a way to release emotions.  But, three years ago I felt a need to write and spread a message of love, unity and compassion. That’s why I wrote Earth Allies.

Where do your ideas come from?

 Vanessa:  My ideas come from my spiritual beliefs and my personal esoteric experiences.

For your own reading, do you prefer e-books or traditional paper/hard back books?

Vanessa:  There’s nothing like holding a hard-back book in your hands. I also like the smell of it as it begins to age.  Mostly, I own paper-backs and a few hard-back books. I do however, own a Kindle and I love it.  It is very portable and I can take it with me anywhere and read my favorite book(s).

What would you say are the main advantages and disadvantages of self-publishing against being published or the other way around?

Vanessa:  If I understand your question, you’re asking what are the advantages and disadvantages of traditional publishing and independent publishing.

Well, when I researched traditional publishing, I learned the benefits of traditional publishing is wide distribution, an advance, they do the editing, formatting, and cover design. There are no out of pocket expenses.  The disadvantages are, in some instances it can take eighteen months before publication.  They have power over the title and cover of the book.  The royalty payments aren’t that great and you need an agent to break into traditional publishing.

When an author self-publish (Independent Publishing) all rights to the book is retained. Full control of the cover design, layout, and title is under the control of the author.  The author chooses the editors, proofreaders, layout, and cover design.  Publication takes about three months from the time the book is submitted for publication.  The disadvantages are out of pocket expense for editing, proofreaders, cover design, copyright number.  Marketing resources are limited, and the book may not sell well.

If I could retain all rights to my book and be involved in the marketing process and creative alterations of my book I would prefer to go traditional.  As an independent publisher I have to do all the work.  But, it is a good learning experience and I embrace it.

 

Where do you see publishing going in the future?

Vanessa:  I see more and more indie authors getting their work out there.  I’m not saying traditional publishing is a dying art but it is very difficult to go that route.  Independent publishing will continue to grow.  It affords anyone the opportunity to publish a book.

How can readers discover more about you and your work?

Vanessa:  Readers may visit my website: http://www.vafarriawritings.com where I write about spiritual things, and post poems by various poets.  You will find information about my book there. I’m also planning to advertise on the social networks.  It’s a lot of work but I’m enjoying the process.

Repost: Adrial – Bring On The Light Show!

As I was reading through one of my 2012 spiritual diaries I found this article gem that I think still applies to these days. Thanks to Leslee and Adrial to directing me again to these beautiful post.

This article is written by Leslee Hare:

One step we can make, closer to DISCLOSURE…

Adrial has shared with me that there is a tremendous Galactic Light Show that is preparing to unfold. Please be aware that this will happen gradually, over time, as the power of the Light Show meditation increases (please see meditation guidance below)…

We believe that our Friends’ ships are cloaked… What I learned last night is that we are actually cloaking Gaia, also, and we can now meditate to release this cloak and be able to see our brothers and sisters in the skies!

I’d like to share what I was shown, in preparation for meditations that we can all do between August 16 and August 18, to help our Star Families reveal themselves…

I’m still on  my trip to Pagosa Springs, so I will just share a brief chat below… please ask questions through comments if you like. This original post is here: http://wp.me/p2saNx-8J

Here is the mediation that Adrial says can help us to release this cloaking grid from Gaia:

1. Please sit under the sky if possible, or near an open window.

2. Please envision Gaia with a 3-dimensional lattice woven through Her many layers and dimensions: Please visualize the light grid as brilliantly shining and pulsing, its energy flowing steadily from point to point and filling Gaia with love, compassion, and connectivity between all life force beings, both inside and outside of Her physical realm.

3. Next please look at Gaia’s 3-dimensional Cloaking Grid, which also penetrates her many layers and dimensions. Please see this Grid as being held by Beings of Light, who are located on Gaia’s surface, on Her Inner Surface, and inside Her Interior Regions (such as Telos and Agartha). Between these Beings of Light, and flowing outwards into the atmosphere, please envision an electromagnetic cloak, appearing like a soft billowing fog, rolling like clouds and covering the view of the multitude of lightships which lovingly surround Gaia and us.

4. Please look into your heart region, and feel the love that Gaia, our Star Families, and WE feel for our beloved companions here on Gaia.

5. Please see yourself as drawing back the curtain of the Cloaking Grid, gradually revealing to all who wish to see, the glorious display of lights and colors that come to us from the countless Light Ships that surround us, high above our atmosphere. Please understand that this revealing will be like a magnificent fireworks display, all around the globe… Like a dance of aurora borealis, flickering and rainbow-colored, and able to be seen from any point on Gaia’s surface.

6. Please feel the joy and excitement that so many will feel when we realize that we may now access at any time, this beautiful Light Show in our heavens. We will soon be able to see our Friends and Loved Ones!

Please share this meditation with as many as you feel may be inclined to help release the Cloaking Grid, and unveil our Friends in the skies!

With deep love and brilliant Light,

Leslee

(Here is some description of what I was shown last night…)

(I was driving across Oklahoma, towards Amarillo, Texas…)

…And I was asking to be shown/understand what are the reasons we cannot see them more
[8:54:07 AM] Leslee Hare: They told me that there were actually 100 ships right in front of me, just over the horizon, so I was looking at that part of the sky
[8:54:33 AM] Leslee Hare: I noticed that it looked different… we cannot see the stars near the earth…
[8:55:01 AM] Leslee Hare: What they showed me is that many of us understand “cloaking” in a limited way.
[8:55:18 AM] Leslee Hare: Ships CAN and DO cloak themselves, but GAIA also cloaks herself!
[8:55:27 AM] Leslee Hare: So others can see in, but we cannot see out!

[8:55:48 AM] Leslee Hare: There are two types of “light-grids” on Gaia
[8:56:36 AM] Leslee Hare: One holds the light, and this one we are familiar with… the other holds the cloaking of Gaia… And we can meditate as a group to release this cloak… there are enough of us now who wish to see and understand

[8:56:42 AM] PREDRAG BRACANOVICH: LIKE A SEE THROUGH MIRROR…
[8:56:56 AM] Leslee Hare: exactly, exactly!!! 😀
[8:57:38 AM] Leslee Hare: there are also three layers to both of these grids, and they are made up of beings on the outer surface, the inner surface, and in the interstital regions like Agartha
[8:58:11 AM] Leslee Hare: so the beings involved triangulate the grid… it is really a lattice, penetrating the entire planet…
[8:58:37 AM] Leslee Hare: and as I was driving, I could see this in the darkness, much like how I can see electromagnetic auras
[8:58:49 AM] PREDRAG BRACANOVICH: WOW…
[8:58:51 AM] Leslee Hare: it looked like billowing fog laid over the low horizon
[8:59:10 AM] Leslee Hare: yes, I wanted to drive all night so I could watch the stars…

[9:00:06 AM] Leslee Hare: So I want to put this into a post for people to share… There is something we can do to meditate for the 17th
[9:00:46 AM] Leslee Hare: (chuckle) that’s sort of right… I still am erasing doubt, as you know, of course… but this understanding helps so much… of course its perfect!
[9:01:05 AM] PREDRAG BRACANOVICH: SAME DATE CAME TO ME…. 17/18 WILL BE DATE WHEN MILIONS OF SOULS WILL SEE SHIPS AND THE JUPITER/SECOND SUN THROUGH DAY…

De-stress by Keeping Our Auras Clear and Strong – New Moon Meditation Gift from Sirius Star Council

ACAST.Me

If you find yourself having more fear-based thoughts during this period – worries, doubts, desperation, anger, resentment, depression, and so on – over the pandemic situation or are surrounded with others’ highly-charged emotions which are impacting you negatively, our guides highly recommend putting in place a regular meditation routine to avoid the accumulation of energy toxins in the body and to deflect the external negativity.

You’re Not Part of This, Unless You Want to Be

Welcome to Brenda's Blog

Summary of Brenda’s March 20, 2020, channeled “Creation Energies” show at BlogTalkRadio.com/brenda-hoffman:Your transition happened while enmeshed in 3D activities. Those now awakening requested a more rapid transition. So it is the world has seemingly come to a standstill. This new normal is frightening, as is any significant change. In the next few days, you’ll begin to accept what is; and discover new joys or explore those you couldn’t in a 3D world. This is a stop, evaluate, and shift time. Not based on 3D shoulds, but personal joy.

We’re in Kansas, Really!” is the title of last week’s “Brenda’s Blog” – her weekly channeled blog for LifeTapestryCreations.com.

Brenda’s “Creation Energies” show and “Brenda’s Blog” contain different channeled information.

Dear Ones,

Perhaps you are concerned about becoming ill, perhaps not. It does not matter for this issue is not part of your drama or Universal transition.

Which Energies are We feeding?

Dreamwalker's Sanctuary

I couldn’t resist reposting this post I wrote in 2018. So use your common sense, investigate the truth, don’t take all at face value, and look at the BIGGER  Picture.

And remember, WE, create what we think!. 

Sometimes we have to switch off, Step away, and reground ourselves as our energetic bodies need to unplug and re-wire themselves from the lower frequencies of this Matrix, which so many are now beginning to awaken to. Also, they sense a big shift is coming. I do, I feel it deeply, do you feel the changes that are ramping up the vibrations?

Which kind of energies are you feeding?.. 

We who volunteered to be here at this time, and all of us now on this planet are meant to be here at this time, we need to wake up more of those who are ready to listen, and let them see that they…

The Arcturian Group: Allow the Clearing ~ January 13, 2020

Rose Rambles...

Editor’s Note: Clearing…well, what is clearing? This is the process of eliminating thoughts and emotions (which may lead to actions as well) from your mind/heart. As these attributes which are negative for YOU are released and no longer exist, mental/heart space is “freed up” allowing other thoughts/feelings to take their place – to occur – which brings an innate feeling of peace and happiness.

Please read this article, understand your true value exists when you are NOT in pain, or fear, or regret, or complacency, but rather to fully BE…

InJoy!

Dear ones you intellectually understand, but must actually accept that you are so much more than you have been led to believe.

Energy, Frequency, and Vibration

Patriots for Truth

If you are new to our sites, you will hear and read about resonance, vibration, gratitude, love, spirituality, free energy, ascension, pineal glands, chakras, and Imagination-Inspiration-Intuition. Perhaps you are highly knowledgeable about these topics. Or maybe these concepts are new or vague to you.

You might ask:

“Why does a truth news site include ‘new age’ videos, articles, and links?”

We believe that it is equally, if not more, important to show the path forward in human evolution instead of dwelling on the all the negativity. There is plenty of that on the internet! We hope to provide you with truth balance — the top of Cat Reports are dedicated to truth news, and the lower bottom for demonstrating how amazing your life is once you align your chakra energy, cleanse and activate your pineal gland, and unfold your full potential as a human being.

This is what our “planetary…

Imaginal Realms with Adam Sommer

Becca Tarnas

Adam Sommer and I seem to have a penchant for holding podcast conversations close to eclipses, and entering into imaginal worlds of word and whimsy together. Some of our themes for my third visit to his podcast Holes to Heavens were plants, planets, and dreams, with discussions of the current Saturn-Pluto conjunction, the mysteries of Eleusis, pipeweed in Middle-earth, and the risk of reductionism in astrology, psychology, and literature.

The podcast is available for download, or can be listened to here: Imaginal Realms with Becca Tarnas.

Our Current Galactic Timeline is Fast & Relentless ~ December 17, 2019

Rose Rambles...

Editor’s Note: “Hang on”…words for the current space you hold NOW in a tine of tremendous change that is happening FAST! This is the moment when the birth of spiritual from the physical IS occurring…and the reason why so many emotional issues abound.

EMOTION = ENERGY in motion, a concept worth thinking about! Find easiness and JOY as you weather the pains and pangs of “birthing” your spiritual self. Turn inward and “let go” of that which not serve you or provide the BEST in any situation for you. Relax into finding, learning, and BEing you spiritual self, and then find yourself Being…

InJoy!

Urgent Message to Ground Crew – Dec 14 – 20th – Alcyone Pleiades

Sacred Ascension - Key of Life - Secrets of the Universe

Greetings My Beloved Masters of the Universe. I have received a very important message from The Council of Manifestation, in which we are being advised that in the next few days Starting from today December 14 – the 20th, we have an influx of energies that are going to assist us in many ways.

During this time you may experience bizarre encounters with beings that you have never seen before, however as we are advised in the channeling these beings aren’t actually present on earth, but are projecting themselves into our realities to help prepare us for monumental changes coming our way.

You may experience sensations of levitation. Time fluctuations where time will either speed up, stand still or slow down significantly for you. You may find yourselves feeling really tired one moment and supercharged the next. Lots of activity in your crown and third eye. Many downloads…
