My book is on sale now!

I am excited to announce that I have finally gotten my book copyrighted and put it up for sale on Amazon, as an ebook for the Kindle. I don’t know what will happen, but I am excited to find out. I’ve made one sale so far, which isn’t much, but it’s a beginning!

I have G.I.S.H.W.H.E.S. to thank, at least in part. I actually started the copyrighting process back in January, but it is a slow process. I received the notice of copyright just around the time I started participating in the scavenger hunt. One of the items on the list was “sell an ebook to Jeff Bezos”. I wasn’t going to try it because I wasn’t sure how to contact him, but in the end, I got my ebook set up and I sent and email to him. I did not get a reply, but it doesn’t matter. The hunt was an amazing experience and I managed to get my book posted for sale and that is what I am taking away here.

For those who don’t know (and didn’t click the link) GISHWHES is a crazy scavenger hunt started by actor and crazy person Misha Collins. Everyone is sectioned off into teams of 15 and after a few days of getting to know one another, the teams are given a list of over 100 items to obtain, create or accomplish, all of which must be filmed or photographed. Some of the items are relatively straightforward, like create a watercolor painting, but there is always a twist, like the people in the painting must be on rocking horses. There is a lot of interaction with one’s team and many of the items require interaction with the public, often with total strangers. This was outside my comfort zone and I did not do a lot of that kind, but I did push myself and make myself do some of the public things because having an experience was the main reason I signed up.

I am so glad I did! I made friends and memories that won’t soon be forgotten.

Some Stuff for Halloween

Halloween Decorations: Haunted House

You’ll need fake spider webbing, some washable (test it first!) glow-in-the-dark spray, some plastic spiders, a life-size plastic skeleton, black-light spray and black light fixtures, hanging bats, scary messages, etc. Start outside. Get men’s jeans and a long-sleeved shirt and stuff them with other clothes. Use gloves for hands, boots for feet, and a painted pumpkin for the head. Set it up to look like a person sitting on your porch. Use some of the spray, webbing, and spiders here, as well as some hanging creatures. Decorate the main room with low light, spiders, webbing and glow spray on the walls, creepy music playing. In the bathroom, use more spray and webbing generously in the bathtub with the plastic skeleton. The bathroom is a great place for a black light. By Eloah James |  Published 10/6/2009
