Fan wear

One of my old friends sent me these pictures of her representing Zare at her aerial class. Totally made my day–one, to see her wearing my t-shirt, and two, to see her rocking such an awesome hobby!

To Change a Mind

“Sometimes if you want to change a man’s mind, you have to change the mind of the man next to him first.”

This is one of my favorite quotes from The King of Attolia.

Are you excited for the new Attolia book, Thick as Thieves, which comes out later this month?

You can pick up your own quote art on Redbubble or Society 6.

Welcome to the new year! Last year I taped the adage “If you want something to change do something different” to my laptop and started doing things differently. Now things are really picking up steam: I have three businesses I am working on this year. I know, right? I think I’m crazy, too. (If you’re curious, radio drama, real estate,  art and of course Zare’s story (the dearest to my heart).

So, I apologize now for any gaps between Zare’s episodes. I’m excited about all this new stuff, but I’m also an introvert and there are energy realities that are hard to get around!

I’ve found myself writing Han Solo’s quip “Never tell me the odds” on just about any paper that can’t run away from me.

Sport Horse Fan stuff

Last July I got attend the Great Meadow International–a three star 2 day event. The riders from the US Equestrian Olympic Team, plus a couple other country team members, were using it as a prep for the Olympics. It was so much fun to watch riders and horses that good compete.

I dragged Zorro’s DSLR around all weekend and have a few hundred pictures, as you can imagine. I’m rather proud of myself for picking just a few favorites. They are impressions, hoping to capture the speed, guts, and precision of the most impressive team sport there is (no, really, how many other teams contain a 1000 lb beast of prey who doesn’t speak the same language?).

Anyway, I hope you enjoy them. They are available for purchase as prints, framed prints, and a variety of other things at www.redbubble.com and www.society6.com/

It’s December! Zare is taking a break for the month of December, time to soak in the light and joy of Christmas celebrations.

To tide you over, I’ll be sharing some of the results of writing prompt games I’ve played with some of my writer friends. These appeared on my other blog, http://www.theravenslanding.com over a year ago.

I hope your holidays are lovely, we’ll see you in the new year.

Art n fanwear

I started selling art on Redbubble because I wanted fanwear for the Attolia series by Megan Whalen Turner. I think I’ve expanded a bit since then:

It will be a year in November, and I have had a lot of fun with Redbubble. I plan to keep expanding and keep getting better at art.

I’m also thinking I need to tackle Attolia again and start working up some more fanwear designs.

Are there other books that are unrepresented in the fanwear realm that you think I should do?

We were pretty close to having a Zare episode today. I wrote for hours yesterday–and still didn’t get one finished. But I got a lot of things worked out. So. That’s good. Bodes well for next week!

In the mean time, I have this:

Yup, I made myself a tee shirt! I kind of love it.

You can have one, too, if you want. I have it for sale at Redbubble.

Also, there is more than t-shirts; pillowcases, mugs, bags, notebooks…

You should go check it out.
