New Videos

It’s been a busy week leading up the Florida move (I say, from a balcony window seat currently overlooking Niagara Falls) — I’ve posted lots of things all over the intarwebs, but I’ve been remiss about linking them on the blog.

So here you go!

Last Monday’s Fairy Tale Rant (remember, if you’d like to pitch in and donate $1 or more for every Fairy Tale Rant that gets posted, head over to my Patreon site and become a Patron of the Arts!)

I’ve also updated the Official ENCHANTED Book Trailer, so that it’s not just for last year’s SYNC program anymore. Please enjoy and share with new friends and fans!

MoA&A Interview #31: Zoraida Córdova

So here we are…the very last day of July’s Month of Artist & Author interviews! It’s been another super-fun ride. I’ve been honored to host such amazing creators. As always, I encourage you to check them out.  If you missed any, don’t worry, you can still find them all on the Interviews Tab.

I was *this* close to letting Elaine Isaak close out this month yesterday with just an overview today…but I can’t skimp on you guys. YOU DESERVE THE WHOLE MONTH!

So when my YouTube digest came in with the newest Vlog from my gorgeous new author friend from NYC Zoraida Córdova, I knew I had to drop her a line. Zoraida was one of the women who performed with me at the May Lady Jane’s Salon reading, and I later joined her at her own launch party for her novel The Vicious Deep. If you’re a fan of mermaids (like I am), you need to be into this book. The sequel, The Savage Blue, releases in January of 2013.

Zoraida, darling, much love to you and your incredibly supportive family. Thank you so much for being my finale!

On the Importance of Turkeys

Thanksgiving weekend’s not over yet! And before it is, I have a quick message I would like to say to my beloved little sister, in front of the whole world.

My next video should be about the story behind this, or why we called Soteria “Sami” all those years…but for now, I’m just sort of hoping this prompts a response. *evil grin*
