The Fringe-Paranormal is Becoming Mainstream

Late night meows, my angelic and devilish KitKats... an overcast cooler day on the tame prairie... when the Kougaress went down to her rural mailbox, one of the eagles swooped ahead of her like in the past... although, the eagles haven’t been around for awhile... likely they moved to another hunting area, and could be returning... they do like the barn... and this Big Cat adores seeing them around.

The Fringe-Paranormal is Becoming Mainstream

More and more, my darlings, the ‘fringe-paranormal, out-there’ topics and happenings are going mainstream. No, not as in the so-called mainstream-lamestream media -- woefully behind the times. The fringe-paranormal is becoming ‘actually and truly’ mainstream. Obviously, the internet is one of the super drivers of this discussion, and a super source of the available info. Here’s one tiny overview-example of what is out there.


Planet X, Consciousness, & Comet Elenin

Date: 09-20-11
Host: George Noory
Guests: Doug Elwell, Deborah Pratt, Richard C. Hoagland

During the middle two hours, publisher of Mysterious World books, Doug Elwell, discussed his research on ancient references to Planet X which connects the work of Zecharia Sitchin to Biblical writings. He noted that astronomers have actually been looking for Planet X for "over 100 years" and clarified that the use of 'X' is merely to denote that the object remains, so far, unknown. "It's not some cheesy science fiction thing," he declared, "it's a legitimate scientific endeavor." Elwell described his interpretation of Planet X as a combination of mainstream science theories on the object along with the voluminous work of Zecharia Sitchen. According to Elwell's research, Planet X circles through our solar system about every 2,000 years and crosses through the asteroid belt.

Elwell observed that numerous ancient texts appear to allude to Planet X and asserted that the object is actually the "core concept behind the Bible." He noted that, in the Bible, Jesus said that, much like his birth, his return would be preceded by the arrival of a bright star, which Elwell interprets, in both cases, to be Planet X. Additionally, he said that if we "take mythology at face value," various ancient cultures wrote about their highest deities facing off in battle against a "dragon" of some kind. All of these references, Elwell theorized, suggest a "cosmic war" between God and the fallen angels, who come to Earth every time Planet X arrives in the hopes of raising an army to "attack heaven, itself."

Quantum Leap & Consciousness

In the first hour, writer/producer Deborah Pratt discussed her work on the TV series Quantum Leap as well as consciousness. She attributed the massive popularity of the program to the strong chemistry between the main characters as well as the concept that past mistakes could be fixed which "gave people hope." On consciousness, she opined that "we are in a shift" and stressed that mankind needs to harness the power of their "collective mass" to shape the future into a positive place. Pratt has set up a special website where Coast listeners can get a free e-download of the first book in her Vision Quest trilogy.

Comet Elenin

Final hour guest Richard C. Hoagland shared his thoughts on Comet Elenin, Friday's impending satellite re-entry, and 2012. He decried the hysteria surrounding Elenin, declaring that he'd "never seen any object so hyped and so lied about than this little nothing, wimpy thing." Hoagland also voiced suspicions over the origins of the comet's discovery, noting that Leonid Elenin, the man who discovered it, has seemingly rebuffed nearly all press surrounding the object. He encouraged listeners to avoid what he sees as "fear conditioning" by the media surrounding Elenin and surmised that something about the approaching comet threatens the world elite. As such, Hoagland mused that "someone in power is deathly afraid of it, so it must be a good thing."

Authoress news and mews ~

So, the Kougar actually went and tagged KANDY APPLE AND HER HELLHOUNDS on Amazon, and also added Kandy to her booklist at The Romance Reviews. However, mews, this Big Cat author is soooo behind the curve when it comes to promo stuff. Yeah, and it will ever be so since it just isn’t in her to do any better.

Yes, actually penning occurred on White Fang, Ace Reporter... and other WIPs were updated with ideas and scenes. The Kougar is still mulling over the whole Indie thing... what to do... what not to do... major argh!

Calling All Cougars!
by Rebecca Gillan

Sandra looked up at the body in the tree. It wasn’t a dead body—it looked too much like a sleeping woman to be a dead woman. She gulped apprehensively, trying to convince herself it was just a statue or something. You know how those marketing yahoos will come up with kooky ad campaigns from time to time. What better way to advertise the first annual Cougars and Cubs Jamboree, right?

Stormy Summer Had Everything from Deluges to Drought - Wed, 21 Sep 2011 07:20:13 PDT - Monster snowstorms were the big news of winter. The spring brought a deadly, record-setting tornado season and epic flooding. Not to be outdone, summer saw plenty of extreme weather of its own: hurricanes, heat waves, drought and wildfires.
Typhoon buffets Tokyo, dumps rain in tsunami zone
AP- 32 minutes ago

AP - A powerful typhoon slammed into Japan Wednesday, halting trains and leaving 13 people dead or missing in south-central regions before grazing a crippled nuclear plant and heaping rain on the tsunami-ravaged northeast.

The most powerful weapon is the human soul on fire. ALL POWER TO THE PEOPLE!

And, May you live the dreams of your heart, not in interesting times...

I'm not very good at promo, either. From everything I've heard, it's mostly a waste of time. Unless you do it religiously. And if you indie publish, I think you have to really go at it hard and heavy.

Serena Shay said...

The best promo is to write the next least that's what I've heard. :) I wish I was better at promo, but there's just so much I can actually do...guess I'll get back to the writing part. ~wink~

Bree, what I've seen you do, is really good. But, I know what you mean about promo! I'm beginning to think that Indie is getting easier as far as promo. One indicator is Amazon's page devoted to Indie authors and books. Also, these days many readers are going for the bargains like Indie books. Of course, there's much more to the total Indie story.

Savanna Kougar said...

Serena, so right!That is the best promo. I just like to give my books somewhat of a fighting chance.
