dear tumblr friends, anons, followers all -
I’m going to endeavor to crowdfund and re-self publish my first novel starting January 2015, but for the next two and a half months all I need from people is a show of support in the form of clicking one button:
no money involved, just sign in using facebook and click the pretty blue button. Pubslush is for books, only - like kickstarter without the potato salad - and I’m out to prove that not only do I have an audience, I have people who want to read more WWII historical fiction written by a 23 year old girl currently sitting in bed, in her underwear, crashing hard from a sugar high/seeing “birdman” while her cat ignores her.
I would really, really appreciate it if you went to the page and clicked the button. It may not seem like much, but it means the world to me. It means I’ll stop feeling like I’m shouting my name into a tunnel and not even getting an echo back.
So please, click the button? I can’t do this without you. Also feel free to reblog this post ad infinitum.
Please, help out! Rachel is a great person and a great writer who needs more visibility!
'Become a fan? But I don't even know her stuff!' I hear you say.
Well click here! Read this extract of her new book (I think she posted other extracts, I just can’t find them right now)
Or you could also read this “review” I wrote of GRAVEL! Get to know her stuff, understand why it’s important to me that people out there see her work: because it’s amazing.
‘Cause people seem to only post the 20-something Audrey Hepburn.
Audrey Hepburn was the granddaughter of a baron, the daughter of a nazi sympathizer, spent her teens doing ballet to secretly raise money for the dutch resistance against the nazis, and spent her post-film career as a goodwill ambassador of UNICEF, winning the presidential medal of freedom for her efforts.
…and history remembers her as pretty.
AND HISTORY REMEMBERS HER AS PRETTY
this is the first time I have ever seen a picture of her older than 20 and I think that’s scary
I wanna sleep so bad but the morphine is keeping me awake. I know I’m suppose to be patient but fuck I hate being sick like this.
Also I’m craving baked potatoes and French beans since yesterday (for some reason). First things I’m gonna eat when I’m allowed to have solid food is this and sushi! And cheese too.
God I wanna eat so bad.
This was a beautiful and inspiring love story of our time. I’m not kidding. (She did martial arts and was on a man-saving mission! He ran a secret revolution from his tea shop!)
guys i have to tell u about how great this movie/show is
basically this girl isn’t alice, her name is alice and everyone thinks she’s the first one who comes to wonderland. she isn’t though, but she ends up in wonderland through a series of spoilers and wonderland is FUCKED UP
wonderland is set up that they steal humans from the real world (called oysters) and harvest their ‘pearl’. basically they take these humans and put them in a giant casino where people feel various emotions (ecstasy, dissapointment, terror, etc), and these emotions are harvested.
these emotions are then sold as tea to the civillians of wonderland - to mollify them since everyone hates the government this is how they keep them complacent in the system.
of course the hero (alice) comes in, and basically fucks shit up, saves wonderland, sees her father again, the ‘girl who stole her man’ is humanized, the acting is great, and there is an adorable old knight who is the best comedic relief ever.
this show is the only thing that has come close to the brilliance of the original, and brings in its own individuality
this movie/show is like someone came in and filmed your favourite dreams.
i highly recommend watching this
That. And I also like that they did the “Omg, get this, Alice in Wonderland, but dystopia” without going “Omg, let’s make it all dark and twisted looking”. Which is fine but, it get’s done a lot.
Case in point, the Queen’s super secret police ride hot pink flying flamingo bikes, seen here being hijacked by Hatter and Alice.
Everything in the movie is bright and vibrant, oh, and their Jabberwock actually looks like the jabberwocky:
I love many, many versions of Alice in Wonderland, but Syfy’s is my favourite re-interpretation.
