Free short story "Musings of a Garden" by me, for FREE!

Hello Lovely Community!

I'm attempting to make one of my ebooks free on Amazon, so I made it free on Lulu.com for the iBookstore, Kobo, and the Nook.  If you click the link, it'll take you to lulu.com where you can download the epub for free.  I already have one book that's free on Amazon (Squirrels & Puppies), but I wanted another one to give my readers a little more to love about me. 

What's the story about?  It's a short story focusing on the relationship between plants and insects.  I was thinking one day about how humans and lower mammals like dogs and cats actually communicate quite well with each other given our lack of a common spoken language.  However, I realized that this is due to the fact that mammals communicate primarily through auditory and visual cues.  Insects use chemical signals and pheromones to communicate with each other, which is also how plants communicate with each other.  Thus the idea of insects and plants communicating with each other, much like humans interacting with other mammals.  I felt it would be interesting to theorize what would be said between these two groups of organisms.  It's only 15 pages long, so you'll get through it quickly.  Yes, it will be dark and weird.  Why?  Because this is me. 

Enjoy!

I'm trying to make "Musings of a Garden" free on Kindle, but Amazon won't do it unless they find out other sites are giving it away for free.  So tell your friends to download it too.  Thanks again for reading it.  If you really like it, a review won't hurt.  Tell me what you think of it.

Ah, I just downloaded the Nook app and it works!! Looking forward to reading both books. Thanks for making them available.

I have a Kindle app but no other e-reader. Is the nook a free app, too?

Epubs work on most readers. The exceptions being the kindle and iPad. Technically the iPad takes epubs too but you have to download it from their site so it will go into that Mac language that apple software is based on. The nook and kobo will definitely take epubs

Interesting.

Found it, but I don't know what program will read an ePub format. Can you help out? Is it available in any other form? I'm interested in the other book, too.

Sounds interesting, but I can't find it either.  Must be a tech issue.  I'll try again later.

Sorry, but I can't find the link. Could you post it again please? I'd like to read the story.

Question on Grad School Program of Neuroscience

Posted by AL Bey on November 19, 2017 at 2:33pm 0 Comments

Hello Peeps,

Currently I'm in the final stages of applying for a grad program at Michigan State called Literary Neuroscience. This program has had "general" internet info circulating for maybe only 7 years, with arguably a location of no more than 5 schools in the whole USA. After taking the GRE today and sending out my scores to these scores, I was curious in wondering, "Are there any predominantly/historically black schools that house programs with similar combined studies of literature and cognition?" Even though the term "literary neuroscience" is relatively new, I'm sure the concept isn't. As an old saying goes, "There is nothing new under the Sun." Plus, one of thee world's foremost conventional experts on Brain Surgery & Neuroscience is renown doctor/author, Ben Carson, also from Detroit, MI. If anyone has answers and/or feedback to this vital question, let me know. And even if I do end up in Michigan, East Lansing is likely to be somewhat of a post-gentrified Nu…

CHALLENGE!!!!!!!!!!

Posted by KENNETH E JAMES on November 18, 2017 at 12:53pm 0 Comments

That's right i said it Challenge for the week if you are an Artist,Writer, whatever the case. If you are a writer do 10 Pages a day for the next week and prove it by Saturday the 25th. That is 70 pages by one week. Now here is the caveat you have to do it in the time frame of your normal day if you cant than try using an hour by hour schedule to see what you are doing that is wasting some time. Nuff said we are all adults here we go!

SKYCITY TALKRADIO

THE UNDERGROUND BY ROXANNE BLAND

Life as alpha of a werewolf pack is anything but predictable. But even Parker Berenson is surprised by the latest twist: he’s fallen in love with a space alien. Problem is, he suspects Melera, his sexy new flame, might be the serial killer terrorizing Seattle. Or maybe she isn’t. After all, just because she’s an interstellar assassin doesn’t mean she’s guilty.
