Welcome! Tonight we are going to indulge in A LOT of reminiscing ~ we want to personally thank each person who attended last week’s Stana Fan Fest 2014 event in Los Angeles on August 9th and invite each person to share with everyone their unique personal story/experience/perspective.
We’ll take a few moments for the latest Stana News and then “set the stage” for how this FUN summer afternoon fan meet-up event unfolded. We also want to congratulate each person who planned ahead and successfully spent their valuable time in the greater Los Angeles area attempting [especially] using their extensive ATP modes of alternative travel available to them. "#GOcarFREE try #ATP" could be heard!
A very special thank YOU to each person who played a role in the success of this first-ever Stana fan meet-up. We couldn’t have done it without YOU, Great Job!!

In February 2001, IMRR Bookclub (originally Interracial Multicultural Romance Readers) was formed as a gathering place for readers of interracial and multicultural romance in response to the increasing number of romance books featuring Black, Latin and Asian heroines in relationships that crossed racial and cultural boundaries, much like the readers purchasing those books.
A short time later, RICH Writers, IMRR’s sister group for aspiring authors of interracial and multicultural romance was created to foster and support those interested in pursuing a career in romance. IMRR Bookclub and RICH Writers celebrates the authors of Interracial and Multicultural romance whether their genre is contemporary romance, Christian fiction, erotica, paranormal romance or everything in between and the readers who love and support them.
We couldn't get their full list of members in this box so we encourage you to check them out at http://www.imrrbookclub.com/aboutus.html!

We had a wonderful time with those who rewatched “Flowers For Your Grave” last night to commemorate #5YearsOfCastle. We reminisced while quoting FFYG verbatim while looking back to where/when it all began for "everything Castle". Truly, “Time flies when you’re having fun” and we all can't wait to see what happens next from the creative minds/skills/performances from the Castle Team.
Tonight, after the latest Stana News from Miah and Lewis, we’re having our second STR Book Club discussion facilitated by Elena. How tonight's selection was determined this time was by a photo Stana tweeted of the title and cover art to a book by Shane Jones entitled “Light Boxes” [published by Genius Press 2009 and Penguin Books Ltd 2010]. So, we thought this would be a very interesting challenge for us and perhaps even spark some creative imagery of the mind while reading [if you read the entire book, you will completely understand the challenge]. We hope you purchased your copy and will join us tonight sharing your thoughts on this fictional story by Shane Jones.

Det er ingen lett eller enkel oppgae for den enkelte å gøre seg selvstendig i forhold til systemet vi kaller "Matrixen". Overspesialisering i samfunnet gjør at mange ikke har de mest grunnleggende ferdigheter å overleve eller berge seg gjennom en periode der butikken er rett og slett stenkt eller tom for varer. Hva gjør du med strøm, varme og mat - det er de umiddelbare behoene sett at du har tak over hodet. Vi snakker om de tingene vi vet fungerer ut fra egen erfaring og inkluderer avanserte former for dyrking av mat, nemlig hydroponi eller aquaponi anlegg.
