Book 17 Marinating Malice

Kathy needs to move on but her thoughts seem to be keeping her in the past.  It is time though.  Her wife has been dead over eighteen months.  She has a girlfriend who would like to become her lover.  Is she ready to put the past behind her and move on?

Trust seems to be the issue, not on her part but on the part of Special Agent Linda Miller, is she ready to take the next step, clues to Kathy and her wife’s past seem to intrigue her a little too much, maybe it’s the cop in her.

Things seem to be conspiring to make Kathy crazy, is she really seeing the clues that point to what she thinks she is seeing?  Her friends keep telling her that she isn’t seeing what she thinks is there. Is it all in her mind?   Is it possible that her wife is still alive or is she only brimming with hope?  Her thoughts keep her prisoner…

Homophobia

Today a friend of mine experienced homophobia up close and personal.  She was minding her own business and someone called her a ‘name’ which was clearly derogatory to her.  He then proceeded to get in a car and try to run her down.  She got out of the way just in time, but not quite, as her foot got run over.  Another friend socked the guy and gave him a black eye.  Now I do NOT condone violence but I can see how I would have reacted in a similar manner.  My friend did NOTHING to warrant the attack.  Apparently this guy had seen her several times at this social gathering and always glared at her and left.  He apparently took offense at her looks, he didn’t know her, he had never spoken to her, he had no way to actually know that she was and is gay.  Today for some reason he chose to act on his obvious hate.  I’m sad about this because no one deserves to be treated in this manner.  Now my friend was lucky that no bones were broken and she’s just bruised up, but what COULD have happened when he deliberately swerved towards her was much more, so much more.  All he had to do is lose control for an instant, beyond the obvious brain loss that occurred.  Had he hit the group of people AND my friend there could have been broken bones or worse.  I shudder to think of losing this particular friend as she has become one of my closest over the time I have known her.

The truly sad thing is it was all on his part, not on my friends.  She did NOTHING to provoke him or his hatred.  He did right by leaving if her presence offended him.  My mother always said if you can’t say anything nice say nothing at all.  He should have said nothing, he should have done nothing, now he will be up on charges from vehicular ones to homophobic ones, both illegal in this part of the world.  He has created a situation that he cannot come back from and I can’t say as I think it couldn’t happen to a more deserving soul.

I won’t go into my thoughts on all this but my heart is hurting that my friend is hurt.  I am grateful that she is here to share what happened and that she is alive to tell her tale.  I’m sad though that there are individuals out there who would commit such a crime and so dire a one that could have had unforseen circumstances.  Some would say, but she is alive, it didn’t happen, the point is, it COULD have.  All because someone couldn’t handle their homophobia.

Poetry

I’m not a big fan of poetry…maybe because Mr. Crawford, my high school English teacher made us read it and as a high schooler, it seemed boring and inconsequential.  I like to think as an author and an adult, my tastes have changed over the years to include a level of sophistication that might actually appreciate the fine writing that I have been privileged to see and read.  I have even delved into a small bit of it myself POEM & PROSE.  It can be so moving, so deep, and take your mind to places that it leads, you are merely following.  It can be so profound that it leaves you drained from the journey, or crying as it relates to you and your life.  I no longer find it boring or even inconsequential, I find myself looking for meaning in words that convey a depth of emotion or a meaning within the meanings, or even a story that enlightens me.  I would like for you to take a moment to check out my fellow authors over at Shadoe Publishing who I have had the privilege and sincere pleasure of enjoying.  Thank you Chris Parsons and Maria Ayala for showing me that Mr. Crawford, while boring himself, was right, Poetry and Prose has a whole lot MORE to offer…K’Anne Meinel

How Much Money Does a Novelist Make?

HOW MUCH MONEY DOES A NOVELIST MAKE?

By Layce Gardner & Saxon Bennett

As Indie authors who have had three best-selling novels in the past twelve months AND who have also had four novels published with a small lesbian publisher, we are often asked this question. We don’t normally talk about finances and how much money we make but in this case we want to make an exception.

MYTH: Authors make more money if you buy their book directly from the publisher’s website.

TRUTH: Authors do not make more money. The PUBLISHER makes more money if you buy directly from their website.

That is why publishers hold on to a book at their website for a month or more before putting it on Amazon or Barnes & Noble or other platforms. They make more money at their website. But they still pay the author the same amount regardless.
