Encantada (Poems Reflecting Awakening)

Since 1995-96, I’ve been holding onto a manuscript that contains spiritual poems which I channeled during my 30s. I tried several times to publish those poems and even thought of self-publishing them at one point. Then it dawned on me that I could just record the poems and add nature photography thus creating a poetry video series.

The problem is I don’t know how to fund this project since I do believe that poets and channels deserve to be paid for their service. I already have one Patreon campaign for Whole Astrology so I don’t want to start another. Perhaps, I can record two of the poems and use those as a sample for would-be art patrons and spiritualists who would like these poems to reach the masses.

What do you suggest?

An Author’s Itchy Feet (Writing Hiatus)

Orpheus

In September I put my 5th novel away, with the idea that I would return to it by the beginning of October. However, I’m still living in a temporary housing situation and I don’t have the space to work on the edits and rewrites of that novel, Enter 5-D. It would help if my Patreon campaign attracted patrons as that would allow me to at least spend more for housing while I write.

I have also looked into renting a room from a professor by circulating notices around the university campus. I try not to think about my novel because when I do I’m hit with writer’s remorse and other gremlins.

If you are an arts patron type and looking for someone to support, either contact me via this website or go to my Patreon campaign page and make a pledge. And tell your friends and colleagues too. Enter 5-D has commercial potential, unlike my other novels. And who knows, maybe some day you’ll say that you got in on the ground floor. Shooting for the moon.

Progress for Enter 5-D

elephant (2)

I’m still plugging away at my 5th novel Enter 5-D which is basically an ascension story featuring ancient Greek gods and characters set in contemporary Seattle. I’m calling it magic realism, but really it falls into urban fantasy light. I also think of the novel as a Harry Potter for adults due to the romantic elements.

I would like to say this is my first time at writing spec fiction, but in 2005, I began writing another novel in this vein, Super-Nature Heroes that featured ancient saints and holy people with the story set in modern Manhattan. You can find the synopsis in the tabs above.

Since the planet is shifting and since I am a metaphysical practitioner it seems fitting that I write metaphysical novels on the lighter side. I even poke fun at Pluto and Hades. While I find the novel entertaining thus far and I promise a snappy ending no one will forget any time soon, I embed sacred geometry and spiritual messages to awaken readers.

The due date for the rough draft is October 4 or thereabouts. At that time, I will look for beta readers and take a month break from the novel. Then I will go back and do rewrites and edits. In the meantime, I still accepting patrons for funding on Patreon. I encourage you to support this future best-selling novel. Your name will appear in the acknowledgements. And depending on how many people support the novel on Patreon, I’ll send you a signed copy of the book upon publication. I can do up to 10 of those.
