New Video: The Rook

See what happens when I have a little extra time? I get colorful. Here’s ‘The Rook’ from Unquiet Dreams. I wrote it the morning of the first day of Alt.Fiction to read at the open mic that day. I recorded this for a future BroadPod (like the December one I’m in, too), but then had the…

Keeping Abreast of the Fabulous

All right, even I am having difficulty at times keeping up with all the news, so if I repeat something here, it just means you’re paying attention, well done, here’s a cookie! Soon I have to leave the glories of Alba for the um, gories? of Albany. Alas. Which means I have to figure out…

Life at No. 10

Still trying to sort out the practical matters: you know how much patience I have for that (>__<) but I have to splice it together which I should have been doing with all that free time but I only remembered it now. More anon!

The Little Video of Calm

In the midst of the mad swirl of our lives, we all need a little moment of calm. Lacking The Little Book of Calm, I try to conjure up soothing images of relaxing situations. Because I love mudlarking along the Thames, I took this video to remind me of those moments of calm. Of course…

There’s still plenty of room for lovely photos of your crafty projects: knitting, crocheting, needlepoint, sculpture, food — the possibilities are…

Unikirja Book Trailer

Here’s my new video, featuring the beautiful music of Ulla Suokko, whom I’ll be celebrating this week over at The Women’s League of Ale Drinkers, part of the month long festival of creative women. I’m trying to focus the rhetoric of these trailers on opening up the sometimes obscure titles of my books to give…

Necon is: Mini-Golf

I got my best ever score: 43! It was only one point off the winning score, although there were I think four people who all got 42, so I probably won’t win a medal. But we sure had some fun! Phil and Anya were entertaining, as always. Tonight, the traditional game show and the traditional…
