March 7, 2011

I was thrilled to find that a few of you floating around in cyberspace came in contact with my blog. I began to look for someone who would support my effort of reinventing myself as a writer. I thought I would make the subject of my first book about aliens. After all, I lived in the Alien Mecca of the world.

A very talented woman did accept the challenge of working with me. She soon became my Editor. She thought, “what better place” to kick off my writing career, but at the 2011 Alien Festival in Roswell, New Mexico. She began to work at creating a media blitz with a book signing appearance. In essence, my career started in Roswell, New Mexico, at the Alien Festival.

It is now six years later. The year is 2017. I have published dozens of books since my debut. Please feel free to visit my website http://klorraine.com and browse through the site. There is a wealth of information for your reading pleasure.

I hope the little tickler that I’ve included will excite you enough to find the book Next Generation: Love in Silence and read it. The book is a quick and light read that is available in the Amazon ebook store and in paperback too. Coupons are on my website at http://klorraine.com. The content of the story is rated PG, so I do caution that the material isn’t suitable for the very young audience.

Happy Reading,

K. Lorraine

I thought I’d change up this week’s blog a bit.

The new movie Beauty and the Beast debuted in the theaters this weekend. “Despite her fears, Belle befriends the castle’s enchanted staff. And she learns to look beyond the Beast’s hideous exterior. She realizes the kind heart and soul of the true Prince within.”

This prompted me to delve into my archives. I remembered a short story that I had written. I found it.  I thought you might enjoy my version of a take on Beauty of the Beast from 2015, Alien style.

Have a happy first day of Spring.

Happy reading,

Being real is the name of the game. I am looking for authentic people to write a blog entry. I want to see humanity and vulnerability in your writing. This is what connects you to your audience. I am this kind of writer and this is the type of person who would write the kind of piece that would fit into my column.

When you go to my website, http://klorraine.com it would probably be helpful to read some of the blogs that I have written. They will give you an overview of the variety of topics I’ve written about.

The rules are simple.

  • You must be 18 years or older to submit an entry.
  • Your written entry should be at least 500 words and no more than 1,200 words.
  • The subject idea is open-ended. Write about anything—fiction or non-fiction.
  • Keep it clean, and please, (no religion, politics or current affairs.)
  • Remember, you do not need to be a professional writer. In fact, I encourage the amateur to write a blog and submit it. I want to know what you believe and how you really feel about things.
  • One entry per person.

Enthusiasm is the key word, and the idea is to entertain, make your piece enjoyable to read and to inform your audience about something you have found that is fun.

The FIRT PRIZE award is—a choice to select one of the following books

  • The adult coloring book, Fun in the Florida Sun. The coloring book blends in well the latest trend of adult coloring books.

  • Spog Tames a Bully  On his native planet of Apple, Spog was taught that the best way to reform an unsavory character is to make them your friend. The steps for this change is revealed in a plan written by Apple’s leading peacekeeper, Professor, Al Right. Spog and his friend gather the students together to prepare a plan based on the Professor’s theory, so the children of Roswell Elementary School could welcome the new kid named Spike, into their playground clan

The second place prize—is the choice to select one of the following books.

  • The Misadventures of Walter and Katy Shuster–Book One

(The Adventure of the Traveling Green Ants.) The genre is Satire/humor and is written primarily for the retired age audience. The story is a comedy of errors that the senior reader would appreciate associated with travel and irrational thinking which often accompanies an aging adventure. Something on the dashboard caught her attention. She amused herself as she chased them about as they quickly scattered. “What,” she spouted off, “Damn, they are multiplying faster than I can squash them!”  Katy was on a mission of her own as she began to sing off-tune. “And Another ant bites the dust; another ant bites the dust.”

  • The Christmas Dream–a children’s story, is about a young boy and a dream filled with wonderment. Ricky finds himself walking in the newly trodden footsteps of a mother deer and her fawn. Up ahead among the snow covered trees, there is a small cottage with a billowing white cloud of smoke dancing around the chimney. Could this be Santa’s house?

The author will personally autograph the book and mail it directly to the winner.
