The Corona Pandemic. Are we entering Phase Two? More Info and Links.

As the author of a Corona Pandemic novel back in 2011, and as a biologist, I’m both shocked and fascinated by the current pandemic. We are all confronted with so much data, so much information, that it is very hard to keep track of the status and to get a clear picture on the reality of this pandemic. Like you, I try to stay informed about the latest trends and insights, and would like to share a few useful links that I came across.

Will there be a second wave of the pandemic? 

We all hope that this won’t occur, but the truth is that most experts seem to think this may well happen, as summarized in this Guardian article. The key argument lies in the parallels to other epidemics, for instance the 1917/1918 flu pandemic. See the second graph “Three pandemic waves: weekly combined influenza and pneumonia mortality” in this wikipedia article. What also raised my attention was a recent politico poll: “Nearly three-quarters of Americans say worst is still to come from coronavirus,” which sharply contradicts some of the statements made by some US leaders. In this case “swarm intelligence” senses more than some politicians.

For your consideration: on the one hand, a second or third wave isn’t a ‘global’ thing. a second wave will (or will not) occur localized, in certain regions or countries. Dependent on the measures taking in your region, a second wave may well be avoidable. A lot depends on YOUR behavior – see my blogpost “Corona. How all of us can help to stop this Pandemic in its tracks.” I keep on repeating this like a broken record: protect yourself and others by following the guidance to the letter. Guidelines may well differ from country to country, from state to state or province to province. Optimized and flexible responses are crucial, adapted to the local situation (which may include regional social behavior: an American living in the Rocky Mountains will behave differently than an Egyptian in Cairo).

However, a second wave isn’t just local, it also depends on other nations.  As I pen these words, without a doubt the situations in e.g. Brasil, Russia or Africa are very worrisome. Example: Brasil: today (according to Worldometers) it officially had 87,187 cases and 6006 deaths. A high number by itself, not surprising with a president that reacted to the health crisis with a disgusting “So what?“. Unofficially, Brazil likely has 12 times more coronavirus cases than official count. Certainly, any country can block all travel from such states, and that is probably a good thing to do. But NO border is water tight! If the pandemic rages through Latin America, Russia and Africa, we will be affected by it, both from a healthcare and economic perspective.

Here a selection of links that I found very compelling:

Also take a look at my Corona Pandemic fundraiser. I’m donating the proceeds from my books and art to the corona effort. Check out the tag “cps_d2c” by clicking instagram, twitter, facebook.

Exhibition Goes Virtual. Corona Fundraiser: my books and art to fight COVID19. Hashtag #cps_d2c

See the most recent May 1st update on YouTube. See the original video announcement on YouTube.

It was unrealistic to execute the on-site art-event originally planned for April 25. However, we won’t allow this crazy virus 🦠 to keep us down, and therefore I am pleased to announce: 

The live event  has been replaced by a VIRTUAL EXHIBIT and FUNDRAISER!

All sales profits from all my books & paintings up to May 31st will be donated to a good cause.

Buy any of my books and I will donate all global profits!

Buy any of my paintings, and I will ensure that the painting will arrive at your domicile, either by (international) mail or by personal delivery (my location: southern Germany). There is no risk for you: you will have two weeks time to return the artwork to me. Any hand-over will be social-distancing compliant. Again, all profits will be donated.

About the Charity. I have selected the WHO Corona Emergency FUND. These fundraisers work – see my past fundraising activities.

Where to get a copy of my books. Ironically, my very first novel TWO JOURNEYS (2011) and its sequel Fields of Fire are all about a corona pandemic. These books of HOPE and PERSEVERANCE are great reading in challenging times. This is a great moment for me as an author to give back.

Paperbacks: You can order my books at your local bookstore, or order them online, e.g. at Amazon. You can find them as eBook on any device. Simply search for “Clemens P. Suter”.  Find more details here. I can also deliver a signed book in person to you (only if you live close by; postage would eat away the donation).

About my art.

Available paintings with details and price are being published on Instagram https://www.instagram.com/clemenspsuter/ over the next days and weeks. Simply follow me on Instagram or search and follow the unique hashtag #cps_d2c on any social media (twitter, Insta, Youtube, FaceBook,..). Drop me a message here at my email address if you want to reserve or learn more about a painting.

Upcoming alternative live event. We will seek an alternative date for the event at the earliest opportunity. If you would like to receive an invite, drop me an email here at my email address.  

Please take the corona crisis seriously. Don’t leave your house if you do not have important business to attend to. I am blogging about the corona pandemic extensively: latest posts.

The Two Journeys novel – available in all internet stores (as paperback and eBook). Clemens P. Suter’s visionary 2011 (e)Book about a corona pandemic.

 

Authors are giving back. From today ’til end of May #Corona #Pandemic #Promotion #CELETERRA

The Covid-19 pandemic is affecting all of us (also see my previous blogposts on the topic). For many of us, that have had to self-isolate, reading has become a great escape from all the bad news.

Smashwords, one of my publishers, had a fantastic idea: why don’t we as authors give back to the community? Many Smashwords authors followed suit, and I am honored to be one of them. Get a copy of the eBook CELETERRA at a greatly reduced price, follow this link to download this exciting book.

CELETERRA: A book about perseverance and hope, about honesty and love.

60% reduced. This is a very special opportunity for readers. All eBook formats are supported, for any device: Apple, Kindle, ePub, Mobi, PDF etc. etc.

About CELETERRA

Celeterra: a magical kingdom, where the souls of the dead party until the early hours. Vance, antique dealer and sleuth. These are just a few of the ingredients of this mystery thriller that exposes the uncanny schemes of a religious organization. CELETERRA: A book about perseverance and hope, about honesty and love.

A compelling mystery that will grip readers of all ages. A great book for all lovers of intrigue and humor.

 

CELETERRA has received top ratings on many sites, e.g. on Goodreads

“A great book. What I particularly liked is that it is very rich in fantasy, and the story has very surprising twists that you do not expect as a reader. An explicit tribute to authors such as Dashiel Hammett and Raymond Chandler, the book shows the author’s verve as a writer of propulsive crime.”

CELETERRA - the extraordinary crime shocker

CELETERRA – the extraordinary crime shocker

I have donated to UNICEF Syria support on your behalf. Thank you for your engagement! #fundraiser

Readers of this blog will recall the fundraiser that I organized a few months back. Due to your engagement as a fan of my work, I was able to donate 150€ to the charity UNICEF – more information here about UNICEF’s Syria activities.

Like with all armed conflict, the crisis in Syria especially affects children: there is mention of a lost generation. As a father of two boys, I can only say: we shouldn’t allow innocent people, youngsters, to suffer from these conflicts. I am very happy that through the royalties generated through my artistic work, I am able, with your help, to support these victims.

Soar not too high, O bird of Hope!
Because the skies are fair;
The tempest may come on apace
And overcome thee there.

When far above the mountain tops
Thou soarest, over all –
If, then, the storm should press thee back,
How great would be thy fall!

And thou wouldst lie here at my feet,
A poor and lifeless thing, –
A torn and bleeding birdling,
With limp and broken wing.

Sing not too loud, O bird of Hope!
Because the day is bright;
The sunshine cannot always last –
The morn precedes the night.

And if thy song is of the day,
Then when the day grows dim,
Forlorn and voiceless thou wouldst sit
Among the shadows grim.

Oh! I would have thee soar and sing,
But not too high, or loud,
Remembering that day meets night –
The brilliant sun the cloud.

“Bird Of Hope”
Ella Wheeler Wilcox

I am donating money to a good cause (on your behalf)

#Announcing a new #Fundraiser: help #children suffering from the #ConflictInSyria. You donate, I pay! Read about the past fundraisers in my blog clemenssuter.com.

For the month of August, I will triple the royalties for any sale of my work, and will donate that entire sum to UNICEF. By buying my work, you will help children in need!

UNICEF defends the rights of every child. After years of conflict, Syrians are facing the largest humanitarian crisis in the world, with grave protection and human rights violations occurring daily. Children have paid the heaviest price in the conflict. Nearly 6 million children now depend on humanitarian assistance, with almost half forced to flee their homes. Many families have lost everything.

How does this Fundraiser work?

  • Simply buy any of my works during the month of August, through any of the channels available: see "How to buy my books" in the right sidebar. If you would like to buy one of my paintings, use the contact button on the top right of this page.
  • Within two months after close of the fundraiser, I will sum up the royalties across all channels,  triple this amount and donate it by direct bank order to UNICEF.

Did you know? Through these fundraisers, I have been able to donate hundreds of euros to charity.

Spread the word with help of the buttons below. This is your chance to get prime books and paintings – and to help those that are less fortunate.

A maximum of 1000€ will be donated.
