RG the Smutty Professor:
So some of you may or may not know this, but I studied ancient religions, mythology and anthro and archaeology in college. A long long time ago when I was younger and my brain worked properly :)
I was all set to be Lara Croft or Indiana Jones. To find the hidden clues or the connections that all of us share. And I did learn some amazing things. How some myths across the globe are so incredibly similar that they can be spooky. How some people, like the Mayans, Dogons and other ancient civilizations, knew about stars and planets we only found out about once we got some seriously advanced tech and sent probes into space. These people knew their shit…then of course, like we all do until we find a concrete, factual explanation or proof to the contrary, they used stories to explain what they were seeing. Those stories became myths and the myths became religions. Planets and dwarf stars were homes to the gods. The milky way was the womb of a mother goddess.
Its enough to set a writer’s imagination on fire.
So what profoundly important event might the Mayans actually have been pointing to? No clue. You might have an idea if you watch a lot of History or Discovery channel…or you might be really intrigued and moderately paranoid if you watch Ancient Aliens lol. Some believe it is a unique alignment of planets that only happens every twenty five thousand or so years (I’m bad at math lol). And sure, some believe that the Mayan’s just ran out of stone to write on. :) Many are sure that they did not mean the world was ending, but perhaps it would be changing. A new era.
Most are just plain fascinated by the fact that a civilization of people who lived so long ago created a calendar that lasted centuries after they were gone, that continued until now in 2012.
Some people just think the carving is pretty-which-come on now-it is.
Personally, I think nothing is written in stone…even if it is written in stone lol I think anything is possible, which is, I suppose, why I gravitate toward creating my own worlds and imagining what ifs. What if it were like our Wasteland series? What if it were like that Twilight Zone episode that Cookie favors- where awesome aliens come down, heal all diseases and offer you a ride in their ship which you accept…only to find out that their book To Serve Mankind is really a cookbook!! AAAAAAAHHHHH!!
Okay that’s probably not it. :)
We could look back at this year in 2020 and say, “Wow, that was a really important year.” Or we could just roll our eyes at yet another conspiracy theory in a long line of zany, end of the world prophecies.
You never can tell….
And now…if you didn’t fall asleep during the Professory lecture :)
Onto the books. Let’s Talk Series.
Eden Bradley has a couple you definitely want to check out.
Smutketeer Robin L Rotham has a few series too. There is a reason I call her my Dirty Alien Farm Wife *wink*
And now it is my turn. You know I’m a sucker for series. Everything from my Unborn vampire saga The COTG series with Regina in the Sun, Lux in Shadow, Twilight Guardian and Midnight Falls…to my Magian witches in Wicked Sexy, Wicked Bad and Wicked Release (with Wicked Dangerous coming around Feb of 2013), and Veiled Temptation series Lifting the Veil and Piercing the Veil (Behind the Veil should also be out around March 2013, with Veiled Temptation quickly following) There is also my Shifting Reality series with My Shifter Showmance, My Demon Saint and My Vampire Idol (January 2013)
See? I’m a series whore lmao
This time two people have a chance to win a $10 Gift certificate for Amazon or B&N-all you have to do is once again pimp our Christmas series.
