Love Matters, Second Life, SL Enquirer

Second Time Around

It’s finally done…  This manuscript took a long time to come to fruition but I’ve enjoyed the journey immensely, and I have Lanai Jarrico, she of the SL Enquirer, to thank for its existence.

Second Time Around is a twenty-first-century romance, where virtual lives and real lives intertwine.

Sheridan King had it all and then she didn’t.  Her trust in men irrevocably shattered, or so she thought.

Luke Ashton, successful Ad man and artist, surfer and ladies’ man.  His pain and distrust of women run deep.

Having a Second Life© complicates matters even further.  What is real and what is imagined?

Second Time Around by Lacy Muircastle is available on Kindle via Amazon

Second Life Love Stories – Bre and David Steele

SLE Bre Steele - My Life

I undertook to do another of the SL Enquirer’s Avie polls and the question that was to be answered was as follows:  Is it possible to find true love in Second Life and make it in Real Life?

This question struck a chord with me and I decided it has more legs to it than just a straight forward poll, and I obtained permission from Lanai Jarrico, the owner and publisher of the SL Enquirer to turn it into a series of SL love stories.

SLE Ascension 1

It is described as “an ancient/futuristic landscape with surreal plants and hybrid insects, Ascension takes the visitor on a trip of sound, color and light.”

SLE Nonprofit commons - 19-04 logo_001

Second Life is not all sex, music and fashion, there are those among us who are in SL to educate others and to do their bit for charity and to raise awareness for issues that plague us out in the big bad real world.

One such place is the Non Profit Commons, where a collection of really lovely people meet in SL to promote RL charitable programmes. The Nonprofit Commons in Second Life is sponsored by TechSoup Global and is a programme of Caravan Studios and the TechSoup Global Community & Social Media team.

In memory of Courtesan DeCuir

As the various events for The Relay for Life for 2012 get ready to kick off I would like to share this story with you.

In 2007 one Courtesan DeCuir arrived in Second Life.  Courtesan DeCuir had been a cancer survivor.  With that said she took Relay for Life very seriously.  She even graced OD Designs once in tribute as her music Idol “Martina McBride” during Relay for Life to help those who were in need.  And another time we heard Courtesan speak once more through Martina McBride in the words of her release “I’m Gonna Love You Through It”.
