When I was 4 years old and went to Kindergarten, I met my BFF in that class (though we didn’t call it ‘BFF’ back then) and her and I were like twin sisters. For years. Over 20 years. We lived two streets away from each-other and spent all our time together.

We grew up together in the same small village, the same schools (classes even) and when our ways parted in education- I went to college and she found a job – we were still BFF’s. She got married and so did I  and then …well, things and life happened.

A great offer if you are a fan of Huckleberry Hax’ books! And if you have not read them yet…I can highly recommend his ‘AFK‘ series –  murder, suspense, love and lust;  all in Second Life! Nope..I will not spoil anything about the latest release in this series, you should read it yourself! Enjoy!

 

What the Huck?

I’m drawing the AFK series to a close with a fifth and final novel, AFK, Awaiting. The book has been finished for a few months, now, and I’m grateful to the feedback I’ve had since from a small number of advance readers, in particular Caitlin Tobias and Zoe Parness (Zoe very helpfully pointed out that I’d managed to spell the name of one of my key characters wrong throughout the book – this is why a writer needs fans).  I now want to reward my most loyal readers also with a free copy.

Some of you might recall my attempt at soliciting reviews last year by promising not to release this title until I’d acquired no less than 100 reviews for the fourth AFK novel, AFK, in Pursuit of Avengement.  I’m not quite done with that plan yet.  It did occur to me, however, that I might…

Over the past years I started some groups on Flickr – with themes. Just for fun, so people could add their photo’s that fitted in the same theme and so create some wonderful collections for all to enjoy.

While it was fun at first, it became a burden  – specially the past 2 years. Oh, there were lovely contributions and wonderful photos added to the groups but for each picture that suited and followed the ‘rules/guidelines’ there were dozens of pics that had NOTHING to do with the groups theme. The dozens soon turned into hundreds and I had to set my groups to ‘moderated’, meaning I had to manually approve each photo.
A drag and a burden. Thousands….of pics that were blindly added to the groups: ads, porn, vendor-images and blog-pics with no connection to the theme whatsoever. Nothing.

the old man could not remember
and didn’t recognize
any of his children, nor his wife

except the little pup
his daughter brought on visits
he knew her name
and her favourite treats

maybe that’s why
when the old man went on his last journey
the pup, just like that,  traveled with him
so he would be with a friend
the only one he could remember?

Maybe that is why - A blogpost

Though my Flickr stream may give the impression I am always clubbing or shopping, this is not quite true. Most of my inworld time I spend either helping members of the SL Blogger Support Group and exploring and enjoying new locations and art installations.

The past weeks I’v been taking things easy, due to the heatwave and also because I’ve learned – after so many years in SL and blogging – I do not need to blog on a daily basis and most certainly not when I do not feel like it!

I have a confession to make: I haven’t been particularly good at using blogs to promote my Second Life business. In fact, I have sucked at it. Mostly, this is because I have been lazy or inept, but to a certain extent it’s also due to the nature of the beast. Let me explain. I design, build, and sell houses for a living. For historical and business reasons, I maintain two brands: Maven Homes and Quantum Luxury Homes. Most of the Maven Homes models are small to mid-sized, whereas the latter range from medium to Insanely Big. Now, it doesn’t…
