Please do consider 'clicking' like on Rachel's blog as she set it on automatic so we can feel her voice in haiku for long after she sadly passed away:  https://projectwords11.wordpress.com

Hi Lorraine,

If you have a wordpress account just click onto a title which brings you to one of Rache's post...

e.g.

https://projectwords11.wordpress.com/2019/04/21/hiding/

if you don't have a wordpress account to be able to click you can register here:

Get Started top right:
https://wordpress.com

Get Started:
https://wordpress.com/start/user?ref=homepage

You don't have to go the full way and worry about creating a blog, but it's very useful to have a wordpress account so you can show appreciation for other people's work on various accounts, blogs, sites etc...

No matter how strong a writer, we all need likes, legitimate ones of course, to keep us encouraged, especially at times when we doubt ourselves, which can be far too regular to be comfortable, to be honest.

kind regards,
Alan

Well, I’ll have to create an account. And while we’re talking, does putting my work on such an account count as being published? Just asking

Hi Lorraine,

When I first created an account with Wordpress it was only so I could acknowledge other people's work with a like and occasionally with a comment.

There is absolutely no need or requirement to post your own work on someone's blog, or even on any blog you create. I didn't use my wordpress blog for years, but at a later stage started using it for published work or events, or thoughts.

Just think of it as a holding place. But no worries if you are unsure. No need to worry about creating a blog for now. The post was for people who can already click like, or tempted to create a wordpress blog so they can both like someone's post.

If you are unsure, I wouldn't worry about it. Other people will read the post, who have wordpress.

warmest regards,
Alan

I see Rachel's blog is no longer posting her work. Sad, but inevitable. I really miss her regular posts and comments here on The Foundation and our online chats.

It's incredibly sad, and I know so many people with chronic illnesses and got to know more via Karen's involvement. I can't talk about one as it's so horribly heartbreaking on so many levels, including great injustice on a monstrous scale.

I figure that the lovely Rachel planned to end the posts after a certain time. It's very rare to publish a posthumous collection, as I know with the case of the lovely Linda Lamas, but it's actually incredibly rewarding.

It would be wonderful if a publisher was approached by her surviving family one day.

I was asked to contact the family shortly after her passing on behalf of a group of writers Rachel was involved, Alan. They want to put together an anthology of her work, with the proceeds going to Lupus. I hope that it comes to fruition.

Alan, I have just received a request for permission from Rachel’s parents to use a photo for this collection of her work, so it looks as though it is going ahead! The proceeds will go to research into autoimmune disease at Leeds Cares - the Leeds Clinical Immunology Research Fund, where donations in lieu of flowers for Rachel’s funeral also went, and for which her mother tirelessly fund-raised during her life. Will pass on news as I get it...

Hi Marion,

Thank you so much for helping this anthology in honor of Rachel!


This came in earlier from Jacob Salzer:

Hello Everyone!

1) The proof copy of Half A Rainbow is in the mail as we speak! : )

2) The Half A Rainbow Anthology website is also near complete! 

Here is the link:  https://jsalzer.wixsite.com/halfarainbowhaiku   

For our anthology website, let me know what you think! I'm open to constructive comments and/or suggestions.

3) Our anthology flyer is almost done!

I'll let everyone know when our anthology can be bought on Amazon and Barnes & Noble websites. It should be available to buy sometime in February, or early March at the latest.

Half A Rainbow will be available to buy on Lulu (technically you can buy it now, but I think it's wise to wait until I approve the proof copy for us to make sure there are no printing/format issues).

In short, at this point, we are fueling for the flight of Half A Rainbow. Without a doubt, Rachel is onboard with her seatbelt on, as well as everyone else in the Haiku Nook G+ community. We do not know our destination, but we are performing maintenance checks and checking the landing gear should we need to touch ground and refuel on this very long flight together. : )

Sincerely,

Jacob / Jack


Alan, I have just received a request for permission from Rachel’s parents to use a photo for this collection of her work, so it looks as though it is going ahead!
