Well, I haven't gotten any further in writing the next book because I've been so busy. But it's all there, already written in my head. I just have to sit down and do it. I've gotten sick a couple of times now this year which has been incredibly annoying. And I am currently trying to fight a cold off that wont go away. I actually think my cat has a kitty cold now-geesh. He's all mopy with a drippy nose.Enough of that!
This next book will be fun and chaotic, and I can't wait to get it out of my head. If you read the first one, I touched on several areas that will come into play in this next book. Like the Fathis Olympics and the Lower Dimension. I have parts of it written already. Maybe next month I can start putting down more.
And my book will soon be available on Google ebooks.
I also have to tackle some pretty complicated taxes this year. I do not look forward to that. oy!
That's all for now. Time to take some cough medicine *gack*
_Here's a fun topic. And no I'm not talking about the ones from across the border.
No I’ve never met an extraterrestrial, at least as far as I know. It is possible that they look exactly like us. God is creative, but if the mold works, don’t break it.
And it would be entirely egotistical as a human being to believe we are the only intelligent thing out there.
So, do I think they’re real?
Of course. Earth Humanity has always been small-minded when it comes thinking outside of their scientific/religious box. It fits into the same theory that the world is flat, and that the Sun revolves around the earth. Humanity has a way of letting its ego get in the way of the natural law of the universe. If it can happen, it will. So, of course there are other intelligent species in the universe. But, I do think we are unique because we are so violent yet we’re still spiritual, an odd combination to be sure. I don’t think that is a common attribute for sentient beings.
Have they visited us?
Sure, why not. I’m sure we’re an interesting petri dish of organisms. But we’re a little unpredictable and quite vicious, so I’m sure they stay back. I would.
Do you think the government is hiding it from the public?
I think the government has their fingers in all sorts of things we know nothing about. And I do think one day it may all come out, perhaps in my life time.
Does the president know?
I think the president stopped being "told" was around Kennedy’s reign.
Many to this day wonder at the warning he was implying. What was the underlying meaning to it?
This is in the same time frame as the Majestic 12 documents and Roswell.
_Do you subscribe to the theory that an alien race created us?
That is what the Sumerian culture describes, which in and unto itself, is interesting because they are the first known civilized culture of current man. Before this was Neanderthal, and for us to spring into the Sumerian civilization is astonishing. If you want to be amazed, read about the Sumerians. They were nearly as advanced as we are today. Many of the items we use today is from them. For example the way we measure time. 24 hours, 60 minutes, 60 seconds. They created that, and they had a judicial system with laws, courts, and judges. And they kept records. People owned land. Remember this is right out of the Neanderthal time period.
But, according to the Sumerians, an alien race (the Annunaki) came to our planet and genetically altered the Neanderthals into Homosapiens so they could have slaves.
And to add to that, the Sumerians also claimed the Annunaki were enormous-giants. Did alien manipulate our DNA, I don’t know. The jury is still out for me at least. But the Sumerian History would explain the “missing link”.
Now biblically, it is claimed “the fallen” were large and evil incarnate, known as the Nephilim. It is said they fell from the sky. Could the Nephilim be the Annunaki?
Plus, look at the Greek mythology. Again, could the Greek Gods actually be based on the Annunaki?
And then there is the Dogon Tribe in the Homburi Mountains near Timbuktu. At the center of their religious teachings is knowledge about a star that is invisible to the eye and so difficult to observe, even through a telescope, that no photographs were taken of it until 1970. The Dogon say they received their knowledge by visitors to the earth from another star system.
This is recorded on a wall called a Circumsion.
The star they describe is Sirius B and its existence was first theorized by Western astronomers in 1844.

In Fathis: Birth of a Falcon there are two dimensions which I call the Lower and Upper Dimensions. I took creative license in these polar opposite worlds, but here is one of the inspirations I found in creating them.
A strangle anomaly that few have knowledge of; there are these occurrences of what is called a polar vortex which is a persistent, large-scale cyclone located near one or both of a planet's geographical poles. In essence polar tornadoes, but I refrain from calling them weather anomalies because of the scientific studies done on them. But, the polar vortices are located in the middle and upper troposphere and the stratosphere. The Antarctic polar vortex is stronger than the Northern and they are described as a stationary, spinning, gray fog in appearance.
Now here is the weird part; scientists in April of 2001, sent a weather balloon into the Antarctic one, and attached a meteorological instrument to it that calibrated temperature, barometric pressure, humidity, wind speed and a scientific chronometer to record the times of the readings.
They attached a cable to the balloon, and released it. The balloon and instrument were immediately sucked into the swirling vortex and disappeared.
After a several minutes, they decided to retrieve the balloon. Despite some difficulty they succeeded in bringing the balloon back to earth and checked the instruments and were stunned by the readout on the chronometer. It displayed a date, January 27, 1965.
The scientists repeated the experiment several times with the same result.
Read more about it here: http://www.eutimes.net/2011/04/deadly-time-vortex-appears-over-antarctica/ The next link is scientific research from Brown University on technical data about the vortex. http://www.cfm.brown.edu/people/sean/Vortex/
Time travel tornado? Weird. Whether there have been any more studies on it, I don't know. But I'm sure whatever government is in charge of that portion of Antarctica, is all over it. Who wouldn't want a time machine?
And as I stated before in an earlier blog, I know I am one of the few people that remembers Nelson Mandela dying in prison. I, at least, am certain I was either originally apart of another dimension or there was some sort of bleed through, letting me be temporarily a part of another dimension, which has been called the Mandela effect.
Who would have thought censorship would be an issue in this day and age?
That would be the day I riot.
Have you heard? Large credit card companies have come down on Paypal, so now PayPal is cutting off their services to books "they" find objectionable. This means books that once were on sale at Amazon and other sites supported by PayPal, are now banned.
Their target Erotica Fiction. Due to the graphic nature of some of these books, they can no longer be sold on certain sites. But their policies deeming what is considered unacceptable, is beyond ridiculous. They actually have told merchants that mild, consensual BDSM will be considered rape and therefore subject to being in violation of their ToS. Plus, sex that involves a woman age 18 or 19 with an older man will be regarded as pedophilia. Are they telling you what you can consider acceptable sex?
Does this mean they are banning Twilight because Bella is 17 and Edward is 100 something?
Seriously, what time period are we living in?
Who's next on the list to be banned? Religion? Political beliefs? Really it's only a small leap.
And it's fiction people! They are banning fiction! Things that are made up. Why PayPal thinks it can dictate what you spend YOUR money on, I have no idea.
It's outrages! As an indie author I take personal insult to this. This targets a majority of indie authors.
All writers and their readers should stand up and voice their opposition to financial services companies censoring books. Authors should have the freedom to publish legal fiction, and readers should have the freedom to read what they want.
If you have connections to mainstream media, encourage them to pick up on the story. Encourage them to call the credit card companies and pose this simple question, "PayPal says they're trying to enforce the policies of credit card companies. Why are you censoring legal fiction?"
These corporations are now trying to tell you what you can, and cannot read!
So please pick up a pen and paper and write to the following corporations and tell them how you feel about this. I certainly will.

Tell the credit card companies you want them to give PayPal permission to sell ebooks without censorship or discrimination. Let them know that PayPal's policies are out of step with the major online ebook retailers who already accept these books as they are. These corporations need to hear from you. Pick up the phone and call them. Email them. Start petitions. Sign petitions. Blog your opposition to censorship. Post open letters to the executives on your blog, then tweet and Facebook hyperlinks to your letters. Force the credit card companies to join the discussion about censorship. And yes, express your feelings and opinions to PayPal as well. Ask them to work on your behalf to protect you and your readers from censorship. Tell them how their proposed censorship will harm you.
These executives need to be held accountable for censoring writers.
Here are some emails,
I also ask you to check out this link in which the National Coalition Against Censorship and American Booksellers Foundation for Free Expression have banded together to protest PayPal's actions: http://ncac.org/NCAC-ABFFE-Send-Letter-To-PayPal-eBay#.T1UddFUT23k.facebook
