The day was cold and misty in late June. Under a canopy, Lebensborn books and the Lazy Bee cookbooks were on sale at the Kettle Falls Art in the the Park.
Vendors and visitors bundled in winter jackets. Late in the afternnon a big storm threatened. Amid high winds, the canopy, newly purchased at Wal Mart as a requiste for being a vendor, came down along with the table, books, cowboy sign for Lebensborn, and it all was shoved into the car before the rains came. A few vendors didn’t move as fast and wished they had. From the car, we watched the helpless vendors frantically move from the site.
Cyrus Webb, known as the Black Operah, requested a copy of Lebensborn for review before my guest appearance on his blogtalk radio program. It will be streaming live at 5:30 p.m PST Tuesday, Sept. 20. Do listen in.
A real-life Fairy Tale was written and appeared in his
September issue of Conversations, a high-class internet
Conversations have begun with bob Dyan, a producer of audio books. “There will be no more cassette audio books made,” he told me. “There will only be CD’s and audio products for internet.”
To produce a ten to twelve hour CD in his recording studio in California would cost ten to fifteen thousand. He has the credentials and contacts to place the final produce with the two main distributors. That’s good. It might be an exciting adventure.
Copies of Liebesnborn are still out for possible review
at USA BOOk NEWS and Fresh Fiction.
FeaatheredQuill.com gave Lebensborn a five-star review and requested an interview. On Aug. 3. Lebensborn was announced as a finalist in action fiction. September 1, it received the Gold Medal. Award-winning authors were asked to name guests prior to Sept. 15 who will be their guests at an award ceremony in Vegas.

Strategic, publisher of Lebensborn, announced a few weeks ago that foreign rights had been sold for Lebensborn and the other ninety-nine authors in their 2011 catalog in Tawain. The company said,”Don’t quit your day job. It will take over a year to implement the program.” Strategic personnel are currently attending the Hong Kong and Beijeing China international book expos looking for more buyers.
Lebensborn is waiting to see if its submission to Barnes an Noble will allow the book in its stores. Mike Saxton and his science fiction and one other Strategic author recently were advised that theirs will now be in B&N stores.
Rusty Springs, current work in progress, flew over the mountains to the Great Falls, Montana, area for more Montana research. The Lewis & Clark Interpretive Center is well done museum.
(The reason I remember all these summer highlights is that as a public relations specialist, I’ve always kept a running log. This blog, too, is the perfect place to look back and see how much work there is to maintain the L.I.S.T. . . . local, international, social network, technology.)
