It's going to be another rough week for Donny Granger.  First, a run-in with his uncles, which threatens to turn ugly.  Thank goodness, one uncle is kinder than the others!  Then, Donny's worst fear is realized-- his secret is out.  How will Daddy Granger respond?  What will Donny do?

Freda's Newsletter July 31 to August 7, 2015: Happy Days and Good Events

Image
Happy days in Freda Land!  The mystery of how to stream both live singing and backing tracks into virtual worlds simultaneously using Windows 8, Shoutcast, and Reaper has been solved, thanks to my friend Wald Schridde (who performs historical music inworld)!  This means I will soon be able to sing live in virtual worlds!  I am over-the-moon about this and will soon be setting a date for a first inworld gig.  Woo-freaking-Hoo!  I can't even begin to tell y'all how much I have missed doing recitals.  In the meantime, there are some events coming in the next week I hope you will consider attending.

I am slipping gingerly back into virtual worlds activities after several weeks when The SL Decades Festival ate my time and a week of hospitalization (Unrelated. I think.).  Tomorrow will bring my first reading from Escape From Pig Hill in three weeks, so we have some catching up to do.  Monday, I'll be hosting Marita Decosta, as she begins a four-week stint on Book Island.  Marita will be reading  Anne Morrow Lindberg's A Gift From The Sea.  And Saturday, I'll be back at Circe's in SL for the first time in a year or more.  I'll be sharing some new poems and one of the first stories I published, Ermengarde The Expansive.  If you are unfamiliar with Ermengarde, now is the time to make her acquaintance.  She is the princess Disney should have created decades ago and still hasn't.  Friday, July 10, 10 AM PST Freda In Progress, Book Island, SL Escape From Pig Hill It's Christmas on Pig Hill.  Margaret is dealing with what her father did to her and taking refuge …

Expect a Few Changes In Freda's Place Upcoming Schedule

I took a week or so off from virtual worlds to regroup after the very successful Decades Festival.  I needed a break (though I gotta admit the break was sorta forced on me by a brief hospital stay -- NO worries, all better now).  Now I'm back, having taken a little time to tweek plans for upcoming events.  Watch this site for a schedule, which will be posted tomorrow or Thursday.  It's good to be back at work, real word and virtual. 

In the meantime, here are my redefined rules for doing events in virtual worlds.  Maybe the same should apply elsewhere as well.  Hmmm...
