CD Cover for NCGR Talk 1-2014Social Network Marketing for the Astrologer  Audio Sample with Parental Warning.

This is the talk I gave at the San Francisco Chapter of the National Council of Geocosmic Research (NCGRSF) on January 7, 2014. It is now available as a CD.

Social Network sharing of information is as old as St. Paul Epistles, Cicero and his Roman pals running slaves back and forth with news from the Senate, Martin Luther and the spread of Reformation, and the American Revolution pamphleteers. Control of information by a monolithic corporation (think Rupert Murdoch) is a modern invention to control the minds of the people.

Astrologers need Social Network Marketing to build their brand & connect with the people.
MyMother-Myself4/28/2015: My copy of "My Mother - Myself" came in today. My first published short story "Saying Solly" is on page 80. In the back there are write-ups  about all the writers and they left out one of my grandsons. I have four grandsons and one granddaughter.

This collection of short stories will be available at Amazon in a couple of months but if you want to order a copy before Mother's Day you can purchase a copy at...

All the contributors in this collection of short stories have donated their work.

For me it is in memory of Edy Henderson, who passed away before she was able to see this book come to fruition. We all know she's whispering "It's about time..." since it took 8 years.
2/7/2015 "Saying Solly" is getting published! I don't know the title of the collection but it is supposed to be due out by Mother's Day 2015.

Because the agreement with the publisher is that the story is not already published I have to remove it from my website until after the publication date. Once it is published it will be returned to my website.

"Saying 'solly' " is a short story written in 2006, for a collection that was to be called "If it's not one thing, it's your mother".  The collection never found a publisher so I put the story up here on my website.

This will be my first officially published written work. My family is thrilled. I'm gobsmacked amazed and relieved at the same time.
January 1, 2015: I became the Vice President of the San Francisco Astrological Society. I am also the Director of Publicity and Outreach. That's what I've been doing these last three years since I've not been making new polymer clay tutorials.

Sun GifApril 2015: Thank you all for donating to my GoFundMe campaign! I am fully funded and my student Dentist, Chandni Patel, and her faculty at The University of The Pacific Dental College  are stunned beyond belief. This is the first time they can remember anyone getting crowd funding for dental work and having all the funds come in before the last three appointments.

I am selling my artwork to fund my dental costs. I don't sell my art unless it's necessary, as most of you know, but now it's time to let go of my artwork rather than let go of more teeth. I'll be adding art to this new website each day so come by and visit to see what's going out the door. Also you can keep track on FaceBook, Twitter, and Tumblr.
  9/5/14: I'm asking for help to raise $4K to help me with my dental costs.

That's why I've started a GoFundMe page.

After 15 years of providing free polymer clay tutorials to the public and not turning this website into a subscription "pay per view" site I'm asking my web visitors for help.

I thank you in advance for any donation you can afford. If you would rather donate through PayPal click on the PayPal verified badge below.
