The Masonic Obligation

Posted by Viktoria Michaelis on September 21, 2014 in Publishing |

I’m not sure whether it is with a sigh of relief or a feeling of great satisfaction after a lot of hard work, but the feeling is definitely there as we hold the latest title – The Masonic Obligation by Lemniscate – in our hands. We’ve had a few quiet months on the publishing side […]

iPhone 6: You’re Kidding Me, Right?

Posted by Viktoria Michaelis on September 21, 2014 in Immoral Conversations |

Over the last few days I’ve been reading the constant, unremitting complaints of all those people who, only a few days earlier, were eagerly awaiting the chance to download iOS8 for the smartphones. Complaints about applications which no longer work, about photographs which disappear, about the sheer size of the update, which would have smashed […]

Using Words With Double Meanings

Posted by Viktoria Michaelis on September 19, 2014 in Immoral Conversations |

Language, that wonderful means of communicating which everyone understands, but which can so easily be misinterpreted or taken out of context. You just need to look at the number of politicians who, having had their ill-thought words quoted in the press come straight back and claim they have been taken out of context, that their […]

The Justification For Learning Words

Posted by Viktoria Michaelis on September 18, 2014 in Immoral Conversations |

We cannot get around using them in one way or another: words. They make up our language, our thoughts, the manner in which we express ourselves. They might not launch a thousand ships, but we need words to describe the face which did and what those ships went on to do in their travels, in […]

Twitter: Stretching The Acceptable Limits

Posted by Viktoria Michaelis on September 17, 2014 in Internet |

I am one of those people who has Twitter on almost every single computer, tablet or smart phone that can be owned, and who mainly reads what others have to say. I browse through the Tweets at random, read my news headlines through Twitter, find links and interesting stories there. And, which is probably more […]

Tim Parks’ References, Please: A Reply

Posted by Viktoria Michaelis on September 16, 2014 in Publishing |

The Internet is good for many things, but it should never be considered an adequate substitute for research, for reading and for learning from – where possible – original sources. It is a mass, if not a mess, of thoughts, learning, quotation and misquotation, false paths and short-cuts used by students all over the world […]

Advantages Of Using Social Media

Posted by Viktoria Michaelis on September 15, 2014 in Immoral Conversations |

Coming to the end of one experiment, as I mentioned recently, does not mean coming to the end or not taking advantage of other social media networks. We all know how important the Internet has become for many, especially the younger generation, and that most seem to have an Internet ready smart phone in their […]

A New Masonic Title Due

Posted by Viktoria Michaelis on September 14, 2014 in Publishing |

It’s a wonderful feeling, as a publisher, when a new manuscript comes in and is ready for publication, almost – I imagine – as good as the feeling when your own book hits the stands and you can hold it in your hands and show it off to all your friends. Today we completed the […]

Another Experiment Draws To A Close

Posted by Viktoria Michaelis on September 13, 2014 in Publishing |

For anyone who honestly believes that the Internet is going to bring them fame and riches, sorry, but it’s time to come back down to earth and face reality. There are very few people who can claim to have made their fortune through the Internet, although these people are often highlighted way beyond their worth […]
