Vegas Captive: First Month Sales

I have been astonished at the reception my story is receiving, the joy at watching my characters come to life and explore the world is limitless. Currently I am working on the next installment, it will be finished hopefully in the next 30 days.

My understanding all the media and publishing world is still in its newborn stage. It was a little over whelming combined with my real life and job while still finding the time to edit and write, so it took a backseat, hopefully in the future I can keep up.

Looking at my first sales report I felt the need from days of long ago to frame my first dollar, however time has marched on and my first dollar is in the digital world. It is not as impressive as a dollar or a first check. The sales report is in Excel and lacks something to hang on a wall. Maybe a Scrape Booker could do something to pretty it up, only I am not one of those. I will think of something to make it a worthwhile Mile Stone for my wall. Till then I will try to keep you updated in a timely manner. Please feel free to check out my book.

My Launch of Vegas Captive

I do not know how to express my excitement, I checked when I got home today and over 50 people have downloaded my book. I refused to check before then because I wanted the weekend to nurse my hurt feeling. I was sure no-one would look at my book. Well, that’s not true I thought a few would look but not 50 during the first day. Now I feel a responsibility to add the next part which is what I wanted to make me accountable to some-one and force me to write, now however the stories are clamoring to get out of my head. I feel I am on the road to a new adventure, wish me luck.

Vin Alaric isn’t just a very successful billionaire with an over developed dominate side. He is more. Descendent of the original Norse creators, he has existed within his own domain for a very long time and that is how he likes it. When a betrayal ends with him married to his mate, who does not have the common curtsy to stick around, he learns the true definition of frustration. How she was able to hide from him for 3 years is still a mystery, now however she has stepped back into his world, he will have her and with her some answers. She will not get away again, or out of bed, if he has anything to say about it, and of course he does.

Well, this is a monumental day I have finished the first part of my serial novel and will be ready to publish ahead of schedule. After further reviews just to make sure I have caught all the typo’s, then I will upload and push the metaphorical red button.

Scheduled release May 1st

The Breakfast Club cast Reunited after 30 years!

The Breakfast Club Reunited After 30 Years

By Darby Lee Dominique

 

Well, I certainly have spent most of my adult life watching these juvenile delinquents grow up. It seems like I have been personally involved with the lives and loves of the Brat pack and yet of course I am just a fan of their work, which started with this one movie.

When this movie was release most 20 something or younger had spent time in some detention room with students that under normal circumstance you would never spend time with. Without anything better to do you eventually would talk and share things with these people. This could never happen with teenagers today because of technology, the students would just spend time on their phones. I believe some of the human condition may eventually be lost due to lack of personal face-to-face interaction.

I have a ton of memories from my high school days and I always relieve them when I watch The Breakfast Club. In the movie of my life I always prefer to experience things on more than one level whenever possible, The Breakfast Club is one of those multi-experiencers. Kudos go out to the ladies as well they look really great for their ages, the guys too, but men always age better.

Hope I am around for the next big reunion.

Black Hole Discovered

by Darby Lee Dominique

Black Hole Discovered

Wow in our own galaxy, it is like the beginning of a science fiction novel, or star trek episode. Every thing that I have watched and considered to be true through out my life has always included science and space in one fashion or another. I watch things with the concepts that even fictional stories hold elements of truth. Take for instance relating to this “Event Horizon”  and a recent movie “Interstellar” both having a black hole as a featured player where time moves differently as the gravitational pull gets stronger the closer you are to the black hole. Which of course lets us as a human race play with the forth dimension “Time” at least in the movies?

What I find fascinating is that in the video they allude to light traveling and a time difference as a journey back to the beginning of the universe, we of course have nothing that could survive the crushing gravity of a black hole. We then are left with only a dream of some distant future where we could send a probe instead we remotely probe it by take pictures from  a distance with high powered telescopes, but the possibilities of it certainly strikes my imagination.

 

Grammy-Tony Bennet/Lady Gaga

Grammys – Awesome Win

By Darby Lee Dominique

I must admit that I love to see this type of performance, a distinguished gentleman who happens to be able to sing, with a sexy, vampy, burlesque queen with a set of pipes. I have always loved Tony, I only wish some of the brat pack were still around to do some of these types of performances as well.

I included a video that also has Lady Gaga in a stunning Red dress, and I must say I am not normally a Lady Gaga Fashion lover, but for this album and all the performances with Bennet she has had exquisite taste. Back in the day when I could I would have loved to wear some of those outfits.

 

 

Nostalgia

by Darby Lee Dominique

I am not old enough to have experienced this little piece of nostalgia during its hay day in the 1950’s but I did eat there a lot  during my youth. I of course refer to Merles Drive-in  where you could get the best fries and a lot of them as well. I used to order some fries and a strawberry shake. The shakes were made with real strawberries and vanilla ice-cream in one of those steal cups when they poured your shake into a glass they left the steal cup with the rest in it to finish off. It was the best, lots of salt and ketchup on the fries and strawberry shake it was nirvana. Merles has been gone for a number of years now, in case you don,t know it was located in Visalia Calif. I passed through a number of years back and noticed it was no longer there but I will always have fond memories.

Comic-Made Me Laugh

I want you to know I have made no resolutions other than to make this blog for the year.

The thing is I don’t know what I am doing but some of you are paying attention. Now the question is with power does great responsibility  come, oh wait wrong comic, is the pen mightier than the sword, and does it count if I don’t really use a pen. Never mind Just enjoy the comic strip.
