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…

MESSAGE TO GRID LINE, LAY LINE WORKERS, KEY HOLDERS, GRID KEEPERS.

I don’t know if Gatekeeper is the same as Grid keeper? I am a Gatekeeper, even though I also trying to find out what it means. I has an intense experience with Mother Earth, years ago, where I felt connected to every tree, every water drop , animals and even humans. It was a profound experience that set me on a spiritual path.

Sacred Ascension - Key of Life - Secrets of the Universe

Greetings My Beloved Masters of the Universe last night I received this message and was asked to share it with all of you.

Geometrical extrapolatory membranes are activating as we speak, extrapolatory membranes of GAIA’s therapeutic vibrations, are being manipulated to be able to bring through a new light wavelength, a new wavelength of light which has not yet been present in the light spectrum of said planet. For Gaia has requested to be upgraded to a new system on which she can continue to experience the interdimensionality. And so and hence, many of the key holders, earth grid keepers and lay line workers, have indeed been informed of said manipulations for the greater good of all involved.

A call has been sent to awaken said light workers to take their positions on GAIA in order that new interplanetary wavelength of light be instituted into and interweaved into the configuration…

The Twelfth Hour

Heart Star

Dear All,

Star family missions have been running thick and fast across various dimensional layers, ever increasing this year, so firstly, to those who have sent emails or messages that haven’t yet received a reply, heartfelt thanks for reaching out and sharing the love! ❤ To everyone dedicated to anchoring Universal Love on Earth through this year, assisting the ‘golden light over 2020’ to stabilize the highest trajectory for this planetary shift through increasing vibrational accelerations, always know that ongoing love, strength and supportive background actions are constantly flowing from the higher dimensions. Pause and breathe in that high vibrational refreshment, the embrace of love all around the Earth, whenever you feel over-busy or depleted, re-centre in your inner divinity and unity with the realms of pure love.

We’d like to talk here about what star family refer to as the ‘Twelfth Hour of Gaia’s arc of ascension’, which her…

Precognitive Blues, Part One: Dreams, Warnings and Blessings

Laura Bruno's Blog

The title and topic of this blog post have been rolling around in my dreams and waking life for several weeks. Whenever I’ve tried to change the title, I get a “No,” and so far, whenever I’ve considered sitting down to write this piece, I hear, “Not yet.” Until today. Apparently, today’s the day. It strikes me that the process I just described illustrates much of what this post will cover.

Idea/insight. No, don’t change the title, but you can add a subtitle. No, not yet. Not YET. NOT YET. …. No, no, Now!

Because I write about precognitive dreams and work with so many people who’ve had brain injuries and/or Lyme disease, I have a fair number of psychic clients, too. Precognitive dreams and related topics arise in sessions, and people feel grateful they’re not the only one. Some of my clients work as professional intuitives, others could but…
