'Wonderdark ARV's are served <3,' says a HighMinder in a recent interview.

Dazjae Zoem’s Wonderdark: The Awakening of Zuza releases in ARV-edition for advance reviewers the last week of December. We’re telling you first, dear readers, which means you get initial dibs on either a digital or print review copy. By requesting to sign on as a beta-reader, you pledge to provide an honest review of your experience reading Wonderdark.  The story: Zuza isn’t exactly an adventurous kind of girl. Her idea of a wild night involves a sketch pad, or loaner book from Loomcity’s library. She rarely peeks her head out from under the comfort of her rock, even at the pleading of her closest friend Jaivyn, but there’s more to life than sketches and books, and dangerous though the near future may be for her, it will introduce her to a light she didn’t know she possessed, and teach her how to trust others gifted in similarly extra-sensory ways… An excellent YA-read celebrating underrepresented indie culture, plant-eater ethos, and the brilliance of intentional dreaming. Genre: Fantasy with Faery/Steampunk elements  How to request your review copy: Drop us a note: http://otherbox.tumblr.com/submit including either the email address you wish to have the digital review copy sent to, or the physical mailing address/po box the print copy should be mailed to. If you’re selected as a reviewer, your copy will be sent out the last week of December, and should arrive before the New Year if you’re located in the US.

Dec 24, 2006— Loomcity, Zambarau

‘In a city where underrepresented subcultures like veganism, indie art, steam ethos, and afropunk reign supreme, an even more unlikely underground—or more appropriately, overground— exists that Zuza Ilanga doesn’t trust, but eventually has no choice but to if she’s to find out what she really is and protect her family from the stuff of ‘Make-believe’—including fairytale characters’ spying on their readers—and the ‘makers’ harboring independent designs.

Can a bookish introvert with an aversion to ‘nonsense’ take the blinders off long enough to accept aspects of herself she’d rather deny, and make the necessary connection with her inner heru (hero) that the dangers surrounding her call out for?’

So reads the small bit of information being released from the Loomcity archive. As it’s crawling with bookeaters presently, there are bits we could not extend that are still lost to their digestive tracts. Experts are waiting to recover them.

We’re advised you can contact the Highmind council to extend requests for your file-copy of the Wonderdark account of Zuza’s awakening, as it has been guarded thoroughly, and remains well intact. The council’s exact wherabouts cannot be disclosed openly, but you can submit your request, and/or comments to: http://Otherbox.tumblr.com/submit and we’re told they will be forwarded to our secure location.

If you are a Minder in need of assistance, do your best to submit a message from whatever part of the Aether you’ve found yourself stuck in, and remember to stay positive. Reimagine.Reframe.Remake.

Pastry Pockets for those long drifty nights in the Aether

Not much in the mood to spend hours in the ship-kitchen this evening? Do not despair.Delightfully scrumptious meals can be created easefully during those evenings of sullen mood, when preparing several sides and one main dish proves too cumbersome for spent energies. I bring to your attention, Pastry pockets. These half-moon pastries are filling, scintillating, and quite respectful of time. You can fill them will just about any veggie, garlic-sauteed bean, cheez, or etc, and even create sauces on the side for dipping when the mood strikes. Ingredients are highlit below in the instructions:

Begin by mixing 2 parts flour to 1/4 part water and 1/4 part oil until the mixture forms a nice dough consistency. When the the dough is formed to your liking, lay it out until it’s reasonably thin with a rolling pin. In a situation of lacking resources, a bottle will do. At this point you can use a large mug or goblet to cut circles into the dough. Set the circles aside and roll them thin. Fill them with your sauteed onions, mushrooms, blackbeans, cheez, bits of spinach, or other desired fillings (lightly seasoned and boiled tomato sauce can make a lovely red sauce, as can melted cheez, or other for dipping) . When they are filled ( take care to avoid over-filling them) fold the circles into half-moons with a fork pressed at the edges of the pastry, creating binding hashmarks to close them. When you’re sure the half moons are securely closed (you may have to fold over the edges and then press the fork to the edges for extra measure), you are ready to cook them.
If you wish to bake your pastries set your oven to 350. If you wish to fry you can do so in low oil, or deep fry in 4-5 cups of oil (for about 2-3 minutes each on medium heat).
The results are stupendous! These lovely stuffed half-moons have been known to lift the heavy moods of shipmates when adventures have taken a dismal turn.

Bonus Treat:
Pastry pockets are well complemented by iced drinks!
To make your own blend 6-12 ice cubes, 2-3 cups of your desired fruit, soy or rice milk, w/ organic sugar (to desired sweetness) for drinks that will make happy all around ;D

Dreamdust for Hazy Watercolor Paths

Black Faery image: Dazjae Zoem (Zambarau.com)
frustrated note: Why is the image wonky?
I wish Tumblr allowed easier html blogging like blogger.


Finally deciding to accept what you want involves the necessary 2-step process of admitting what you want, and loving yourself enough to ( let it get past your walls so you can) receive it.

How hard is that? Hard. But I’ve finally done it. I’m finally ready to receive what I want (which means there won’t be any unconscious tensing of the muscles in a fear-response to success, but instead allowance of the good things so they may have access to my aura, unobstructed —- Try it. Saying yes to heart-glow induction is the move).

Let the dreamdust alight the hazy, watercolor path I walk, sketch by sketch. I’ve seen enough of the wastelands to know I don’t belong there.

-PurpleZoe.
