I think I'm experiencing a bug! I just installed the app for the first time. When I go to my Widgets tab, I can find the Toggle Folder but not the Power Toggle widget with the buttons. I'm using Android 5.0.2 on a Moto X (2nd Generation).

I'm sorry that that happened to you. You didn't deserve to be treated that way. It was a funny video up until that point. Keep dreaming big and I hope you become a legend!

NEW RELEASE: Goodbye Miami eBook! Kass, an American climate refugee, flees Miami in the wake of a hurricane that leaves most of the city underwater. After moving in with her cousin in Southern Illinois, Kass struggles to deal with her displacement. She hopes to find a way to return to the city that she loves. But thanks to global warming, that city is now underwater. What starts as a search for survival quickly evolves into a struggle for the future of Miami -- and the world.

Facebook just suspended my account due to my "unusual" name. This is strange because I've verified my name for them in the past. I've submitted the proper documents to regain access to my account. I suspect that someone maliciously reported my account, but I won't name names unless I get some evidence. In the meantime, I can be reached here on Google Plus, on Twitter, and via email.

Goodbye Miami is a climate fiction blog set in the year 2030. It follows the story of Kass, an American climate refugee who leaves Miami due to flooding. Check it out and help spread the word!  #GoodbyeMiami   #Miami   #GlobalWarming   #ClimateChange   #CliFi  
Goodbye, Miami. My name's Kass and I'm a survivor of Hurricane Florence. Needless to say, I just had the craziest weekend in my whole entire life. On June 6, 2030, a Category 5 hurricane made landfall in southern Florida...

I've asked Google to change my name to Treesong rather than Treesong Treesong. After all, there's only one Treesong. :)

I posted my first two "creations" on Patreon! One is a short story and the other is a novel chapter. Not all of my creations on Patreon will be cli-fi (climate fiction), but both of these are cli-fi. Become a Patron today to read these creations and get access to the monthly Google Hangout!

I've been behind on this group lately because I've been busy finishing my new book! Goodbye Miami is the story of an American climate refugee who flees Miami in the wake of a hurricane that leaves most of the city underwater. I would appreciate any feedback, reviews, etc. you have to share. Thanks!

G+ General Help  - 
 
I'm having trouble getting Google+ to recognize my "single-part" name. My full legal name is Treesong. This name is a single word, no last name, just Treesong. I've tried several times in recent months to follow the directions laid out here:

https://support.google.com/plus/answer/1228271?hl=en

The directions seem very simple. It's great that Google+ has instructions for how to handle this. I enter my name in the first name field, enter a dot in the last name field, and file an appeal to have the name changed. 

But then it doesn't work. The appeal is just rejected with a form letter saying that this name does not comply with the Google+ Names Policy. But the opposite is true. The name "Treesong" would comply with the policy because it's my full legal name. "Treesong Treesong" does not comply with the policy because it is an erroneous doubling of my name.

I've tried submitting all sorts of documentation indicating that this is my real legal name: state ID, court order of name change, etc. I've included links to my other social profiles which do (surprisingly) list my name correctly. I also have the benefit of being an author and public figure, so there is copious documentation of the fact that I am publicly, privately, and legally known as Treesong.

How do I fix this? This is especially important to me because it's affecting my suggested Custom URL. But I realize that that may be a whole nother question, so first I'd like to just settle what my official name is with Google+. Any help would be appreciated. Thanks!

Ah, okay. That's good to hear. I guess I got that impression because the only people I've heard mention custom URLs were the people who were complaining. Maybe the people who got a better URL offer just quietly accepted it without much fanfare. That does give me hope too because I have an obvious and valid reason for my change. Thanks!

Hi everyone! My name is Treesong and I'm a cli-fi author from Southern Illinois. I just learned about this community by doing a search for "climate fiction" and finding the Cli-Fi Books website.

I've been writing climate fiction for a few years, including one novel and several smaller projects. This is the start of my first real effort to reach out to other cli-fi authors. My current circle of author friends all have varying degrees of interest in climate change as a social/environmental issue, but none of them really address it in their fiction. Since my current focus (and probably my long-term focus) is climate fiction, it's well past time for me to connect with other cli-fi authors.

Thank you for starting this community. I don't use Google+ as often as I use Facebook, but I'll keep an eye out for updates in this group. I look forward to staying in touch and learning more about your climate fiction projects. The world needs more climate fiction and more recognition of the climate fiction that's already out there!

Thank you for the comment! I agree that straightforward facts are often not enough to engage and motivate people. Sometimes even if they agree with the facts, they become discouraged rather than doing anything positive. But storytelling can leave them feeling intrigued, entertained, maybe even inspired.

Honestly, I'm surprised more people aren't writing about the climate. I suppose it takes time. I was working on climate issues for years before it occurred to me that climate would be a great theme for my writing. Combining my writing and my concern for the climate is working wonders both for my writing career and for my desire to raise awareness about the issue. Climate fiction continues the long tradition within science fiction and speculative fiction of talking about important social issues of the day in a way that is often more engaging than an abstract discussion or even "traditional" fiction.
