sheila and i literally just got settled into a temporary extended stay at Sun & Ski Inn in stowe while we wait for the first flight available for us for our side trip to paris, enroute from vermont to texas

that we have such a relatively easy complication from hurricane sandy’s visit to the northeast, is something we are extremely grateful for

having gone through hurricanes since hurricane carla in houston in the early 60s, i can say from personal experience that size of storm is irrelevant when it comes to if a storm adversely affects a person

some smaller storms, like sandy, pack the most water, which is, i believe, the biggest threat still from tropical storms

either way, if one loses power, even in a thunderstorm, then a family or individual becomes vulnerable

so all our prayers and best wishes, for all of us

my third fiction novel in the current series, “A Love Story” is a great fun read of a large family gathering together – everyone from grandchildren to grown children to grandparents is involved ;-)

thanks so much everyone, stay safe!

The Indie Spotlight : “The Old American Artist, a Love Story”

16 Jul
The Old American Artist, a Love Story

Click for Listings

***

Pictured, “The Old American Artist, a Love Story”

A romance and an artist’s story, how could it not be a love story? ;-)

We all love a story that shows how a loving pair, meeting obstacles in life, overcome that challenge, and resolve to love each other.  But what happens during the “lived happily ever after” part?  What are the details, what might the process be, achieving and living that post-crisis life?

This arc, from boy meets girl, boy loses girl, boy regains girl, morphs, in this first of three books, in the trilogy, Triptych, into that fuller story of life, and love.

The Old American Artist, a Love Story

Original Art Work for Cover, “San Antonio Riverwalk” by Felipe Adan Lerma

“the old american artist, a love story” on The Indie Spotlight

though i’ve recently completed a series of posts detailing differing aspect of creating “The Old American Artist, a Love Story,” the detailed questions requested by The Indie Spotlight, presents another look at the creative process and story

i am pleased and honored to be able to delve into the questions of “how” and “why” in the open-ended, yet guided manner, provided by greg at this site for indie writers

if you have the chance, please hop over and take a look, then let me know if you chose to read this new work

the second book in the trilogy, “Triptych,” is already underway and progressing interestingly, as it mirrors the point-of-view of the title, “Rosetta” ;-)

2 Shorts, a Poem, & a Sampler (fiction)samples of my earlier fiction and poetry work, in the 1981, is available free at participating outlets; hopefully more online sellers will soon feature it free soon

thank you so much for considering my work, i hope you not only enjoy it, but feel encouraged to explore your own creative potentials, in all the fields you feel most attracted to

it’s a process, and “usually” fun ;-)

my intro photo ebook for beginners, which is what i still consider myself, is “Photography Plus, a Beginners View” being featured by “The Indie Spotlight” whose motto is :

The Indie Spotlight – Where the Independent Author Shines

The Indie Spotlight

what the indie spotlight offers, is a chance to have one’s independent self-published work more widely presented, especially to the growing number of people with ereaders, such as the kindle and nook, plus tablets from apple, kobo, and with android systems (among others)

Photography Plus, a Beginners Viewa variety of in-depth questions are presented to help the reader know the writer and the work presented a bit better

the questions actually have helped me formulate for myself reasons for, among many things, why i chose this project for an ebook and what i hope people will take away from my work

the indie spotlight on my ebook also features links to my site for more in-depth material on my imagery, plus one of my photography poems from the book

indie spotlight’s submission page provides a downloadable questionnaire, and that can be submitted to one of the founders, gregory bernard banks, a published writer and graphic artist

if you are an “indie” writer, i’d highly recommend this opportunity; it is free, easy, makes one think about one’s work a little more broadly, and is of course potentially good pr

the questions are fairly comprehensive, but easy to follow, and my previous submissions were presented in a way that showed my work to very nice light

also ample opportunity is afforded the author / artist for listing related links of interest

*

Update Submission Process Changes

recently, the indie spotlight suffered a server crash, and was stalled in presenting their spotlights, but evidently only for a short bit, as they seem to be in full running again ;-)

greg, one of the co-founders of the indie spotlight, appears to be accepting submissions easily again

quite a variety of indie work is featured by The Indie Spotlight, and i’ve come across work i wouldn’t normally have heard of or known about, i hope you’ll check it out

New Work In Progress

PhotoPoems Book One, Seven Volumesmy newest image work, “PhotoPoems Book One, Seven Volumes,” a large compilation of published and unpublished image and verse work, should be available this month, and hopefully i will be able to present this work also

thanks so much,

sincerely,

a variety of in-depth questions were presented to help the reader know the writer and the work presented a bit better

medical needs, and cures, are a huge growing business, and enterprise, especially with the graying of america (including me ;-) ) -

a wide variety of nursing fields, and related health occupations, are included, in the ebook itself

the indie spotlight on my ebook also features several poetry examples from the book, “Home Health Nurse” – “Nursing” – and “Medical Unit Coordinator”

indie spotlight’s submission page provides a downloadable questionnaire, and that can be submitted to one of the founders, gregory bernard banks, a published writer and graphic artist

if you are an “indie” writer, i’d highly recommend this opportunity; it is free, easy, makes one think about one’s work a little more broadly, and is of course potentially good pr

the questions are fairly comprehensive, but easy to follow, and my previous submissions, one for “poems for lovers loving & being loved“, another for “101 sports poems“, and one for “10 sports lessons i can smile at now” were presented in a way that showed my work to very nice light

as with my other featured books, i think it’s fair to say, the questions helped me clarify, to myself, and my readers, some whys and whats about my creative process, particularly in regard to the style and type of poetry book featured

Update Submission Process Changes

recently, the indie spotlight suffered a server crash, and was stalled in presenting their spotlights, but evidently only for a short bit, as they seem to be in full running again ;-)

greg, one of the co-founders of the indie spotlight, appears to be accepting submissions easily again

i’ve come across work that, because of the in-depth presentation, i probably would not only not known about, but not known to care about

***

it’s a fitting time, that the indie spotlight on my nursing poetry book is on memorial day, as the care we receive in the service is vital to the whole success of the mission of protecting our country and constitution

dVersePoets, as part of their series of poetry prompts each week, is hosting a memorial day poem prompt, included in the prompt is a moving poem from walt whitman -

this is a supportive talented group, i hope you’ll consider giving them a visit, either to post a poem, or read some of many varied offerings

thanks so much, i hope you also get to stop by at indie spotlight

sincerely,

a variety of in-depth questions were presented to help the reader know the writer and the work presented a bit better

sports is year round -

and so this lightly humorous look back at my layman’s fun and trials at playing at sports, “10 Sports Lessons I Can Smile at Now” takes a look at baseball, dance, skateboarding, yoga, running, and bicycling

indie spotlight’s submission page provides a downloadable questionnaire, and that can be submitted to one of the founders, gregory bernard banks, a published writer and graphic artist

if you are an “indie” writer, i’d highly recommend this opportunity; it is free, easy, makes one think about one’s work a little more broadly, and is of course potentially good pr

the questions are fairly comprehensive, but easy to follow, and my two previous submissions, one for “poems for lovers loving & being loved” and the other for “101 sports poems” were presented in a way that showed my work to very nice light

i think it’s also fair to say, the questions helped me clarify, to myself, and my readers, some whys and whats about my creative process, particularly in regard to the book featured, more deeply than i’d realized i would

in the optional samples inclusion ending, i included chapter one, “Turkey Bike Trot” ;-)

Heads Up on Submission Process Changes

also, and very importantly, the entire submission process and resultant “spotlight” on one’s work, is free – that always helps us new (to the world) writers and artists ;-)

however, due to a recent server crash, greg, one of the co-founders of the indie spotlight, gave a “state of indie spotlight address” saying (my own bolding) :

Ed and I have been truly grateful for all of the tremendous support you have given us, and are very happy to continue providing The Indie Spotlight as a medium to help let the world know about you and your work. But our popularity far exceeded our expectations, and prior to the server crash, we had a very large queue that was continuing to grow by the week. So now that we have this unfortunate opportunity to start over, we will be taking steps to keep the stockpile of submissions under control so that we can best serve you. So submissions are open now until the end of the month of April, and then we will try to have a more definitive submission period schedule set up, which we’ll post on the website.

so, from my view, a total recommendation of the indie spotlight’s services, but with a heads up regarding keeping an eye out for upcoming submission changes after april

i’ve come across work that, because of the in-depth presentation, i probably would not only not known about, but not known to care about

thanks so much, i hope you get to stop by at indie spotlight

sincerely,

adan

Yoga

i think my ending “yoga” segment in my writings is replacing my previous “final thoughts” section

change is about adapting and enhancing, at least for us, people ;-)

even if the universe is random, which i lean toward doubting it is, maybe it’s our job, as people, to invest it with some purpose!

and if love is the driving force of our universe, as many believe, maybe our awareness of it, and infusion of that love, into our daily lives, is that purpose -

if nothing else, it sounds and feels good ;-)
