Manifestation, Monday’s, Malone, Meteors, Snow, Squash, and Symphony

Hello Lovelies!

It has been an absolutely crazy week. Monday alone was just a weird mix. There’s a lot of alliteration with M and S words here, so read on…

I’m going to throw in a few previews of blogs to come because so much happened…

It was Veteran’s Day in the US, so a lot of businesses and schools were closed already. But hey, throw in a freakishly early first snow storm of the season, and things got really interesting really fast. It started as freezing rain and the predicted dusting of snow became 2”. Couple pics from at the Botanical Gardens and Campbell House:

By nightfall, the clouds cleared for a spectacular meteor that was captured on cameras all over the city!

Adding to the celestial excitement, it was 11/11, an optimal day to manifest. I’ve been doing daily work on my goals and gratitude with a diary a friend gave me. So at 11:11pm, I meditated and manifested my dreams. We’ll see how things go, but I’m already incredibly optimistic!

On the way inside to my apartment, I picked up one of our spaghetti squash from all fall display in the Campbell House Garden and decided to cook it up before it went bad:

I’ll have more news on the Campbell’s in upcoming blogs.

Last week was also the anniversary of my mom’s passing. Her birthday would’ve been tomorrow, so she’s still on my mind, always in November. So on the 5th, this was the first thing I was grateful for:

As I continue to write and work, I’ve found some fun and unexpected sources of inspiration. I’m not the biggest Post Malone fan, but his latest song “Circles” is crazy good and the video is so creative. If your big into Ren stuff, check this out:

Another “M” inspiration comes from “Maestro”, this incredible video short was really well done and gave me more ideas for a children’s piece I’m working on. Watch it here:

Right now I am scrambling to get many things updated, moved to new platforms, and back online. I’m still not satisfied with some of the changes, but I’m making progress. If things go well as planned, 2020 is going to be an insanely awesome year!

As always, thank you for reading,

Victoria

October was jammed packed with seven events between all the cultural institutions I work for and my own events!

I have much to share, so I will break it down on future blogs. But today, I just want to wish everyone a Happy Halloween with a couple quick pics:

Five Years In and Turning 50

Hello Lovelies:

This is isn’t one of my regular posts, it’s more personal, so bear with me…I promised a blog on turning 50, so it’s finally here.

Saturday, October 5th, I’ll be 51. Where did the time go? Like super-fast, gone. My nieces and nephews are all driving, graduating high school, and a few of them are out of college with jobs. I remember them in diapers. Songs that came out in 1980 are going to be forty years old next year in 2020. WTF? How did that happen, lol?

Okay, so beyond that shock, how do I FEEL about being 50? Well, pretty good. And I’m glad I waited to write this until now, because this past year was a game changer in so many ways.

First of all, I’m just grateful to be alive. Six years ago I almost died due to a herniated umbilical that went south really quick. I was fortunate to be healthy in almost every other aspect (except weight, which I’ll get to in a bit). And oddly enough, after the initial panic of discovering I could’ve been dead in two weeks, I was good (that blog about that adventure which is NSFW, is here https://mysteampunkproject.wordpress.com/tag/herniated-umbilical/). My professional life was hell, and I just ended a relationship, but I was on my way to where I am now.

Plus, at that point, I’d been battle tested after my mom died in 2005 after a long struggle with MS. I was already in professional hell at that job then too. My biggest supporter was gone. Within a few weeks of her passing, I fell and sprained my arm in a freak bowling accident. A few months later, I had a car accident. And within a few days of the accident, my first bunny died. I missed my mom like hell. A couple months later, I fell down some stairs and sprained an ankle. It was probably the worst 6 months of my life. I figured, if I could make it through all of that, shit, I was golden. Again, part of the journey.

By June 2006, I finally had some elective surgery that took care of problems I’d had since my teens: a tonsillectomy, removal of my uvula, and fixing of my deviated septums. No more CPAP for obstructive sleep apnea and getting sick every couple months with upper respiratory problems. Still on my way.

And I remember to be grateful to have made it this far. Over two years ago, my old sister passed, just like my mom, from MS. And again, a few months later I lost another bunny. OK God, I see the pattern here. Time to break it.

The awareness is there. LIVE, LIVE, LIVE, in hyper reality. A steampunk friend wasn’t feeling well at a steampunk convention over Labor Day last year, 2018. She got super sick. Just after the holidays she had terminal cancer. And on that same day, I found out another artist/musician friend had terminal cancer too. Friend one died by summertime. Friend two is still in the fight, but has embraced hospice care. Both only in their very early 50’s. I only wish I could be that brave to face the end with the dignity they have demonstrated. My assistant (at one of the horrible jobs) was well on her way to acting/modeling success, preparing for a move to Atlanta, when she died suddenly in a car accident at 28. LIVE, LIVE, LIVE.

I have been uncoupled from a steady relationship for over five years. I was grateful for it but I’ve stumbled around like an awkward teen in the dating pool since then. Plus, no less than five of my friends have gone through divorces. One of my besties had cancer AND a divorce. The 40’s were not kind to us with romantic hearts. But I know who I am and what I want, and I absolutely will not settle. I don’t need a white knight; I need a true hero of my heart. One that supports my art, because art and writing are my children. They’re needy, demanding, sad, fun, and exhilarating. And I won’t give them up. I want to create until I die. I may be a romantic fool, but I’m too old to fall for bullshit.

I’m on a trajectory that I’ve busted my ass for over the last five years. When I said goodbye to corporate America, I meant it. Do I miss benefits and a good sized paycheck? Yes. Do I miss the trauma of competitive backstabbing assholes? Oh, hell no.

Letting go has, ironically, helped me get a grip. Not that I still don’t worry about money. I had PSTD-like anxiety after working in one of those places that went to hell in a handbasket and wasn’t paying me on time anyway. That’s almost gone. Again, I lived through that. Done. Move on. I promised myself that within five years of getting outside of that insidious bubble to get some measurement of success. I got on St. Louis Magazine’s A-List in the reader’s choice for author this year. That was enough of a sign and encouragement to spur me onto the next successes. I’ve done some awesome public art projects since 2010 too.

I have two part-time dream “day jobs” that aren’t just for money. I get fed culturally every day. And both are Victorian era institutions, so my imagination is in overdrive mode with new steampunk storylines entering my head continuously. Living on the grounds of one of these lovely spaces is pure bliss. The move from my former apartment was pretty much hell, and there’s been a few bumps on the learning curve, but I don’t miss 9 to 5 at all.

With all this inspiration, it’s time to broaden the horizons. My books will be on Kobo by late November and other platforms including Google Books and iBooks shortly after. The folks at Kobo have really thrown their support behind me, and I look forward to what this expansion will bring.

I’m leaner. Before I’d had that emergency hernia surgery, I was already down about thirty pounds after being morbidly obese. I’ve shown people pics of that time over ten years ago; they don’t believe it was me. And once I had that life-saving procedure, I’ve been on that good downward spiral of weight loss, nearing the hundred pound mark. That’s like, an older kid. Shit, there are still times I’m in shock. I’m back to regular workouts and mowing the lawn no longer kicks my ass. Recently I pulled clothes out of storage from almost twenty years ago. Normally, I’m in Frozen “Let It Go” mode, but I bought all kinds of dress clothes from those “slave to the day job” days. Now they fit and I’m still ecstatic. So I keep going. I look forward to when these pieces become too big for me to wear. Slow and steady wins the race.

I’m a survivor. Not a big fan of that show, but I like the idea of simply outlasting everyone. When we had to run in gym as kids, or when I played soccer in my teens, I never had speed, but I always had endurance. And so I endure. I exist. I create. I do it for me, but I’m happy that you’re here with me, along for the ride. So get in, we’ve got places to go, people to see. Fifty is just a mile marker.

As always, thank you for reading,

-Victoria

The Big News…

Hello Lovelies:

I’ve put most of the following information in a YouTube video, so if you’d rather watch, the link is here:

So straight to it:

1) By late November most of my catalog of books will be available on KOBO! I met a rep from Kobo at Penned Con and was impressed with all that they have to offer.

In addition, I will be across other major platforms, iBooks and Google books in the near future.

What does this mean to you, the reader?

I am grateful for Amazon and my books will still be there. HOWEVER if you read only one part of this post NOTE that if you have downloaded FREE books from me from Amazon, you will want to read them ASAP. Once I move from exclusivity with Amazon, I can not guarantee that the previous free offers will remain. PLEASE read them, review, etc. I MIGHT have one last free book drive through Amazon, but again, Amazon frequently changes rules and programs. So fire up those kindles.

AND now you will be able to find my books on other platforms! I am broadening my reach as I have readers in many other countries and truly appreciate all of you!

2) The move to other platforms will delay some releases and I sincerely apologize. I have a TON of new promos coming out including new book trailers. Lafayette to London and coloring books will most likely arrive in 2020, however…

3) The latest Vampire’s Little Black Book series story, “The Body Farm” will be out in time for Halloween!! Yes it will be on Amazon first, because it will be entered in Amazon’s Pen To Publish contest. I would appreciate your reads and reviews!

4) “A Dream of Emerald Skies” was in the semi finals of Amazon’s UK Storytellers Competition. It did not go into further rounds, however, it still is in competition for an Amazon Originals contest. So again I appreciate your support. There’s going to be some major push through March. Please watch for giveaways, etc. This is my first mature young adult steampunk novel.

5) The old craft friendly Etsy is gone. It’s no longer a viable selling channel for me. Again, I will shut it down soon. If you see something in my store, grab it NOW. I don’t have an exact closing date. Feel free to contact me if you see something you like. Updated shopping links will come in 2020 as well.

6) In the continuing to say goodbye mode, I am done with certain shows, collaborations, and most certainly flakes. I had one person flake on me twice this summer and it put me behind almost a whole MONTH. Not a rant, just a fact. I am blessed to work with a lot of talented people, and I’m going to focus on that moving forward.

7) October is going to be an event filled month. Watch this space for a lot of costuming and fun pics. I am looking forward to getting out for some fun activities.

Please enjoy a preview of what’s to come!

Models: Lauren Brandt, Mary L. Poll, Pete Hutchinson, Ashley Meyer, Jacqueline Brown, and Stephanie Zhong.

I always appreciate your support on this creative journey!

As always, thank you for reading,

Victoria

Hello Autumn and Catch Up!

Hello Lovelies!

I love fall. The cool air, brilliant colors as the seasons change and of course my birthday and Halloween in October make Autumn my favorite time of year.

I just finished 29 days of super hard work with only two days off during that time. I’m looking forward to truly enjoying this fall with a bunch of fun events with friends.

So sharing a few quick pics from a shoot I did with Kim Ackerman last year that ending up being one of my covers for my latest, “A Dream of Emerald Skies” with models Lauren and Ethan Brandt of Thousand Faces Cosplay. Enjoy this scenery from Lafayette Park:

Speaking of “Emerald”:

“A Dream of Emerald Skies” is entered into the Amazon UK Storytellers 2019 contest. So I’d appreciate your downloads and reviews! Remember, you don’t have to have a kindle to get the book. You can download the kindle app to your phone, tablet, or laptop. Thank you for your support!

And speaking of thanks….

Penned Con was an amazing experience! The support of the staff, other authors, and fans was amazing! There were a few hiccups with the hotel, but it was an incredible weekend.

Here’s my interviews with other Steampunk authors from the event on YouTube!

*My latest newsletter is up!

https://mailchi.mp/0558564f9b76/free-ebooks-and-penned-con

*And a quick hello from YouTube!

More new reads on the way, so back to writing….

As always, thank you for reading,

Victoria
