Rae's 2007 Movie Wish List

It's been a long long time since I done this and I have to admit, it's been a long long while since I've had the urgency and excitement to see so many movies in a year!

So here it is, my 2007 movie wish list for movies I'm DYING or curious to see! :-D


Now Out

The Astronaut Farmer
From the time he was a child, Charles Farmer had only one goal: to be an astronaut. Earning his degree in aerospace engineering and joining the Air Force as a pilot, Farmer was a natural for NASA's astronaut training program and was well on his way when a family situation forced him to drop out. But Farmer was not a man to let anything stand in the way of a dream.

*Sunshine
Fifty years from now, the sun is dying, and mankind is dying with it. Our last hope: a spaceship and a crew of eight men and women. They carry a device which will breathe new life into the star. But deep into their voyage, out of radio contact with Earth, their mission is starting to unravel. There is an accident…

I found him!

Yes!!! THE ONE. He's funny, he's helpful and a bit weird like myself and he likes science fiction. Now the big question is what can he do for me and will he really like me?

Yeah, no...so not talking about romance, but am I the only one who sees the parallel to finding a romantic mate with finding that great literary agent (and sometimes publisher)?

You start the beginning of the seduction dance. You see each other across the floor (the page, search engine, etc). And you are scared, of course, to approach the person because you know you have the chance of being flat out rejected. But you like that person, even a little and hope that they like you to. You hope they find you smart and funny and...profitable(?) in the long run. You hope this person isn't out to swindle you and take you for all your worth leaving you penniless, cheated, alone and having to start all over again.

So you take that step with the hope that maybe, just maybe, the person wants to see more of you. And the…

Coming Up Roses

Hey guys! Just thought I'd do a quick blog about my work and tell ya to keep an eye out for because it's making its way all around the net!
My book cover designs can be seen at Lavender Isis Press in their upcoming books, I also designed the logo which is currently being used by Amira Press (they also used Melissa Wathington's awesome imprint names, kudos Lissa!) and I have a Renderosity gallery that is being updated more frequently, thank goodness lol. I need to get my butt in gear for writing because I haven't been doing that as much as I need to be, but after opening things should be little more lowkey. So keep an eye out for my artwork! Also make sure you check my blog for current and upcoming updates!
I'm also testing out a new logo I may be using for my site. Not sure whether I want to go fancy or more sci-fi tech. Here's the fancy one with my second signature font, Edwardian Script for the main layout.



I'm spamming myself here but ah well! lol

I posted this at the Cimmerian City blog and 2 myspace bulletins and I would have posted it at my Myspace page, but unfortunately the site is down (we're not very shocked about that are we?)These are the very first reviews that I've received and I am over the hill ecstatic!! They aren't for Cimmerian City (yet!) but they are for another speculative piece I've written entitled 'The Eye of Alloria' an Illustrated novella.
Warning: The second review contains major spoilers for the story so click at your discretion. Very awesome words by these two wonderful ladies! yippee!
Here's a few snippets and their links!


Praise for "The Eye of Alloria'
"This book has a beautiful dedication. I was moved by that alone. Next, I must say that Rae Lindley has a wonderful imagination. This is an incredible tale. I have been reading genre fiction since the 1970s and this is something new. Also, the artwork here, by Rachel Lindley belongs in a gallery.The story is boun…

An Interview with Rae Lindley

My first interview! Ahhhhhh! I think I'm finally passing the threshold where I'm not just a writer, but an actual author!

Wow.

A snippet:

- What truly motivates you in general? In your writing?

Definitely my characters. I love the stories that have to tell and the way they interact with each other. Much of it offsets and illustrates their environment they live within so I get to explore different times and worlds at the same time, while carrying my message throughout the story.

- Where do your ideas come from?
From all over. Strangely enough, I have a ton of what if situations that pop up in my head. It could be started by a character doing something in a movie and I wonder what if something completely different happened, pop there’s an idea. Or I hear about a news event that happened and I see a solution that I can later try out in one of my stories.

- Do you have a favorite author? Favorite book?
Definitely. My favorite author would have to be Seressia Glass, because I love love lov…
