Adventure and discovery was the enticement that drew Lee Elders to this wild lawless land; the supernatural world of the Shuara that live in a mystical realm of ayahuasca-induced visions where the ethereal world is encased within our third dimensional reality. Along the way he discovered his true self - his Kakarma. However incredible some of the incidents may seem this is a true story.

Default :) Sold A New Story

Hi Folks,
Just learned a few weeks ago that a new story of mine has been bought for an upcoming anthology being released in the Fall 2014 by Exile Editions, a Canadian publishing company with a 40+ year literary history. This anthology is called "Fractured: Tales of the Canadian Post-Apocolypse". My story is called "Last Man Standing". Oddly and happily I wrote this story "on the fly" for submission to this while finishing another story called: "My Last Story: Hemingway's Cigar or It Must Have Been in the Water" . This writing happened while in Las Vegas last August on a holiday seeing Celine Dion's and Rod Stewart's stellar shows. Didn't gamble, didn't drink (well one glass of wine) or carouse… but got a couple good stories , lots of sunshine and some good walking and exploring… plus a tad of thinkin' . Am so pleased with this evolution… and so so grateful for the Angel, the Muse, My Muse, continuing to land on my shoulder once-in-awhile… albeit in the strangest of places, moments and juxtapositions with life. The creative "way" I suppose... Best wishes to all here… and thank you for reading, and most of all... be good to you…
Luv,
Frank

Default For Frank

Sending along a hearty congratulations to you Frank!

I just found this thread. Let us know where we can find your story when the book is published!

And...what? No "carousing"...in Vegas?

Best to you,
Wolfdog

Default Tnx WolfDog

Ah,,, thanks Wolfdog.
Very kind. Yes I will let everyone know where/how it can be bought when book comes out. Sometime in fall 2014. I know the publisher has a U.S.A/International distribution programme. Kind of exciting to have a story selected for this anthology.
Yes I know… no carousing in Vegas of all places ! I just seem to slip into a nice creative zone while there… get invigorated… inspired… and re-charged… odd eh… But I do love seeing the shows by the musicians/singers/performers on stage there… I love that… Be good to you and thank you again for your note. Means a lot to me.
Best,
Frank
