“5 Stars

I have been waiting for Fractal Dreams to be published so I could have my very own book with Janet’s artwork. I never heard of fractals until I visited her blog and I was absolutely in awe of the art she creates. I look forward to seeing all her new pieces, like a kid at Christmas, and at first I am taken in by the colors and try to follow where the design goes, similar to getting lost in another world. I was so excited to see Janet put her art in a book and very pleased with how it turned out. She does an excellent job explaining what a fractal is in terms that I was able to understand even though I am not much of a math person, and going through a wonderful selection of designs and discussing different effects and areas of each. I have seen many fractals since she first introduced me to them, and Janet’s still are some of the most striking and beautiful to me. In addition, she gives them titles that fit the design so well that you instantly see it. Her excitement about her art is infectious and I did try it once but nothing came close to what amazed me about Janet’s art, so I am happy to be a huge fan and visit her sites where her art is featured and now to have a book of my own. The colors, shapes, design and Janet’s enthusiasm make Fractal Dreams one of the books on my books I treasure most shelf.”

FREE E-COPY IF YOU’LL REVIEW IT
NOW, I can offer you, in exchange for you writing a review and posting it on the Redmund Pro website Review Page http://redmundpro.com/book-store/review-form/ a FREE e-copy of FRACTAL DREAMS. Just email me at kppput@yahoo.com and I’ll send you a promo code to redeem for a free e-edition. I only have a few, so first come first served, as they say!!!

Of course, I certainly recommend the print version, when it becomes available. That way you can show all your friends (wink, wink, nudge, nudge)! The price will only be $10 for more than 80 images, stuff about me, comments from some wonderful fans, and a wonderful image on which I’ve written a (hopefully) good definition of a fractal.

So, the waiting is finally over… and well worth the wait!!!

And, not to worry, if it is an e-version you want, you can get one for only $3.00 if you choose not to trade for a review, or miss the opportunity for some reason. Again, if I were you, I might hold out for the print edition (FULL COLOR 9″x6″). On second thought, I’d probably get a few of each, for gifts!!! (Lots of folks check out the e-version, first to see if the print version is worth the measly $10 – check it out!! I assure you, the print version will be WELL worth it!!!)

So I MUST thank you all for your continued support and kind words, without which, I don’t think I’d have had the courage to publish the book in the first place!!!
And a big THANK YOU to all who contributed in any way to bringing this book to reality!!!

WHAT? Am I EXCITED?
Yeah, maybe just a LITTLE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

:)

PS: There are several other books on the site for your pleasure, as well. There are two memoirs, “Killing Us Softly” by Red Dwyer and “Girl in the Iron Lung” by Gail Thornton, both of which I have read. I HIGHLY recommend BOTH!!!
There is Lizzie C’s “A Month of Mental Moments”, just like in her blog Running Naked with Scissors!
There are a few books of poetry that will definitely get you thinking. And a few fiction books, as well. One of these fiction books, “Jaberweill Hunt” has one of my fractals (Magic Carpet Parking Lot) on the cover with some extra artwork by Lizzie!
I tell you what – I plan to buy/read all of these books I haven’t yet read. And maybe even get some for gifts too!

WE WILL SHORTLY RETURN YOU TO YOUR REGULAR PROGRAMMING (FRIDAY FRACTAL FEATURE). Thank you for watching/listening to/reading this SPECIAL REPORT from Buddhakat Designs!!!

“The Regret of a Flower”
Isn’t that just the most haunting title? That is the title of a soon to be released book of poetry by Gail Thornton.

I have grown to know and like Gail, personally.  I read her other book, “Girl in the Iron Lung” (also soon to be released) and I was enthralled from the start.
It is told from the perspective of a 5 year old child. To children of that age, everything is absolute. There is no relativity with which to temper emotions and perceptions. And that is what kept me reading, eyes glued, until the very end.
Even though at first it seems that this can only end badly, by the end of the book, my heart swelled with the pride she must have felt by overcoming challenge after disappointing challenge.

Both trailers are also the creative brainchildren of this artistic and strong woman of today.

As well, Gail has an Etsy shop, Eclectic Designs and (of course) a blog of her own.

I can’t wait to read “The Regret of a Flower”. As near to tears as “Girl in the Iron Lung” brought me, I’m almost certain, I will go far beyond tearing up to full blown soulful crying of emotional depth.
