I’ll be at the Durand Fantasy Expo this Saturday, for anyone in the area.
I missed a friend promo yesterday, ’cause my brain sucks. Yesterday was the release date for my friend Deborah Blake‘s new nonfiction book Witchcraft on a Shoestring [B&N | Mysterious Galaxy | Amazon].
Fixing one problem with a car should not require trips to four separate car repair places. I’m just saying…
Signal boost from cloudscudding from yesterday’s post:
I just launched “The Circus of Brass and Bone”, an apocalyptic steampunk serial story and podcast that follows a circus traveling through the collapse of civilization. I’m doing this to raise money for my mother’s cancer treatment–she was diagnosed with Stage3c ovarian and endometrial cancer while working at a school in India, so she doesn’t have health insurance. Coming back to the United States for treatment means both my parents had to give up their jobs,too. And because of their choice of careers–helping others–they don’t have much in the way of savings to fall back on. All donations go to pay for my mother’s cancer treatment and related costs.
Finally, I haven’t done a LEGO bit in a little while. My Facebook friend Karen Gould sent me a link to her husband’s recreations of medieval castles in LEGO. What makes this especially cool is that he’s done Harlech Castle, which was my starting point when I designed Whiteshore Palace where Danielle et al. from the princess books live.
Whiteshore Palace is, well, white, and I modified the scale and design a bit, but this is probably the closest I’m going to get to a LEGO set for one of my worlds. Click the pic for more.
