Hello Cassie Black Fans of Bloglandia! Okay, I lied. There's no bananas in this email. I just couldn't resist the alliteration. But there is a bribe and it really is another release day. And I promise this will be the last one for a little while because this release brings the exciting conclusion of the … Continue reading Bribes, Bananas, and a Book Release Party (with Video)
Hello Bloglandia! I told you I'd be back! And this time I bring videos...you have been warned. Now, if you happened to miss the excitement yesterday, you can either pop back over there, or I can just sum it up by telling you I'm celebrating the launch of my latest book, The Uncanny Raven Winston...which … Continue reading The Uncanny Raven Winston Book Release Party, Part Two (with Video!)
Hello Book Lovers of Bloglandia! That's right, The Uncanny Raven Winston has flown the coop and is now landing on the shelves of book retailers around the globe. Talk about your long-haul flights! Even though it seems like we just did this, let's crack open another bottle of champagne, raise our glasses, and offer up … Continue reading The Uncanny Raven Winston Takes Flight (New Book Release Party)
Hello Bloglandia! No book is an island. Hmmm...I don't think I have that quite right. Although if the book was large enough, I suppose it could serve as a raft. Sorry, the point I was originally trying to make is that most writers take inspiration from other books or stories or legends. You certainly saw … Continue reading What Happens When Cassie Black Meets Peter Grant?
Happy Friday Bloglandia! In case you missed it in your WordPress Reader, Episode 7 of The Book Owl Podcast hit the air waves...or rather the pod waves yesterday. Although Episode 6, in which I took listeners to the moon with some Fake News, is my favorite episode so far, this one is a close second. … Continue reading The British Library Birthday Bash — The Book Owl Podcast

No!!!!!!

Okay, it's just Little Venice - a neighborhood in the northern bit of London - and may not be as famous as its Italian namesake, but it was still worth a little excursion while Mr. husband and … Continue reading Day Tripping to Italy from London
My original plan of covering the London Trip in only three blog posts seems to have failed. Ah well, it's next to impossible to not go on and on about such a terrific city. Today we head to the south side of London for some strolling, some shopping, and some Shakespeare-ing. The Making of This … Continue reading Making My Shakespearian Debut in London
Okay, okay, that title should be "Crossing the Line in Greenwich," but "Crossing the Line in London" appeals more to my alliteration-loving sensibilities. During our recent trip to London, Mr. Husband and I seemed to be making up for all the things we wanted to do last time (way back in 2013), but couldn't manage to squeeze … Continue reading Crossing the Line in London
