And I have had decent success with simply views of the various pages on the OmegaBooks site in general as well as this OmegaBooks blog which I have not updated in a while. But I have been busy.
I am working on a “spin-off” novel featuring a minor character in my trilogy books, a fan of the ‘prodigal band’, called Bobby, born in Texas, living in California near the Bay Area in the fictitious city of Richmont. I have also been ‘beta-reading,’ so to speak, a work by a Christian author who has published books in the past as well. And keeping up with the latest news, political, spiritual, cultural, psychological, etc. And NFL season is almost upon us…I may get back to watching football again what with the anthem protest stuff pretty much secondary–if players want to protest it is their right, but just don’t insult your fans like a few players did last year (for instance: insulting your Cuban-American fans by supporting a man who wore a Castro t-shirt before his team played Miami in 2016 is kinda dumb, I’d say. Freedom of speech is cool–insulting your fans isn’t!)
It also pains me to report that WordPress banned a news site I really liked, Fellowship of the Minds, yesterday, for “violating terms of service.” I have no idea what terms of service this site violated because this site did not promote hate or violence, which would violate the terms of service. Nor did WordPress tell the holders of the site which term of service they violated. It is known that they did report on the Facebook etc. banning of InfoWars Alex Jones. Is that what got them banned? Because my non-book-oriented blog here also reported on this in three posts on three consecutive days. Will this blog also be banned? Folks, in the USA we have what’s called the Bill of Rights, the first article of which relates to Freedom of Speech and Freedom of the Press, among others. Maybe this site did in fact violate the terms of service; I do not know how. But either they did, or WordPress is just following the lead of the other tech giants. A company called Automatic owns WordPress, and I have no idea who owns Automatic. I do know one thing: Fellowship of the Minds was run by a true Christian who called himself Dr. Eowyn. I do hope religious persecution was not the cause in this case. And they weren’t even Trump supporters!
In the next post I hope to explain more about my books characters and the why of them.
