Titiretada 2014 – Photo Blog

I have been so busy lately, that I haven’t been able to post anything in here. Let’s hope I can can change that, soon. These photos were taken in March, this year, in the Puppeteer Fest that takes place at several venues around here. I took awesome photos of the “Cantastoria” event, where actors sing and tell a story using hand-made moving scrolls and posters. Anyhow, I’ll shut up and let you enjoy the pics.

The World Within

And, just because I am a generous person, here is an excerpt:

“I had often heard that one great discovery only leads to another one, and what lay before me certainly proved this creed to be right. There were tall walls of earth that encircled the quartz pillars, forming a special kind of funnel around it. I could distinguish roots, long greenish-brown vines that hung down like a curtain and layers of rock formations that crept out, as if protecting the closely-knit quartz pillars on their way up. They did not touch the crystal, though. There was enough space between the cluster of quartz pillars and the surrounding earth for a person or two to climb upwards to the surface. The whole sight gave off the surreal impression that the quartz had been planted on the puddle, rather than it emerged from it. Close to the top I could see some brownish-green areas, but these did not belong to the forest. It was then that I realized I was inside an odd sinkhole, underneath Maboodia, in a world within another one. “

Book Awards for Indie Authors

I’ve been wanting to post about this for some time, but I haven’t had the time, until now. Just wanted to share a list of Book Awards where independent authors can submit their work. These are the ones I know of, there might be others, so feel free to add to the list in your comments. The not so good news about these awards is that you have to pay a fee to participate. So, I’ll just list them here, in no particular order.

1. Independent Publisher Book Awards

2. Next Generation Indie Book Awards

3. The National Indie Excellence Book Awards

4. Moonbeam Children’s Book Awards

5. Writer’s Digest Self-Published Book Awards

6. San Francisco Book Festival

7. The Green Book Festival

8. New York Book Festival

9. Hollywood Book Festival

I have submitted my book, but I won’t say to which ones, so I’ll just leave you with the mailing promo I made and…

Good Luck to all!


Animation to love

Yes, I’m a sucker for short animated films, clay animation, stop motion and computer animation as well. And so, I have chosen three of my favorites to share over here. There is a recurring theme in the three of them, but I won’t spoil it by giving it away. Hope you enjoy them as much as I did.

Honestly, I don’t know which one I like the most!
