“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!!!

Hi all…

I have been totally out of it for this entire past week, as in health and heat demons finally got the best of me, and all I could do was lie here and take it!!! Those demons managed to drain me of all my intestinal fortitude, and then some!! Today is the first day I’m daring to venture out in a week, and even now, I’m not sure how my strength and stamina will hold out. Just have to wait and see, I guess… this is the first I’ve peeked out from under the covers for DAYS! Let’s see how it goes…

a couple tunes for your listening pleasure…

(hope there’s none of this in my route today)…

and…

and we’re off….

PICTURE WINDOW

NEURAL ZONE

ABYZZ

PULSAR

SPINFINITY

Well, that should do it for today…  Neural Zone and Picture Window were both created using a fractal generator called Fractal Science Kit. It is a little more difficult for me, because the interface works a lot better if you get the math (which I don’t), but I can still get a few things. Last week, Perhaps and Nirvana were also from Fractal Science Kit, which you can download for a free trial period (30 days, I think).. The creator, Ross Hilbert, also shows many of his images on his DA site. His images are a LOT nicer than mine!!!
So I hope you have enjoyed today’s offerings. I MUST say, I’m so glad the DNC and RNC are both over. What IS with that Clint Eastwood, anyway?!?!? I think he was still in character for his latest flick.

Now that summer’s officially over, time to pack away those white shoes (NOT) and put up the storm windows. Maybe we can hold off for a while, though. This is my perfect weather, 70-75 F during the day, 55-60 F overnight!! I could live with this FOREVER!!!

Almost forgot, Red over at M3 (with one of my favorite weekly features: Friday Follies) has finally got her new poetry book out. That’s her second book in as many months! “Taming the Terrible Two’s” is just what it sounds like and “Mantra for a Muse” is gobsmack full of Red’s and Mantra’s poetic works. They are truly amazing poetry. I just got the e-book and hope to review the whole thing for you, but I warn you, I do love to savor poetry, take my time, so I can absorb all its lovely facets, hidden and not. So don’t hold your breath for the review. Better yet, why don’t you run over and get yourself a copy of one or both!

One last thing, I hope you will all forgive me for not only not getting around to your blogs, this past week, but I haven’t even responded to ANY comments from last week or newer. I am taking it slow, so I don’t wear myself out before the book is done. Wouldn’t that be awful?!?!? I finally get a book deal and I kick the bucket before I can send it off to the publisher!!! That is NOT going to happen!!!

I may just spend another day or so hiding out under the covers, to make sure all those terrible health and heat demons are truly gone!!!

Happy weekend, all. And don’t forget to tell someone you love them, at least by giving them a good hard hug.

love and hugs and peace to y’all…

🙂
