Do you love quirky Frankenfiction filled with gut-busting comedy that collides with gory and fantastical tales? Do you find the current market lacking in gloriously ludicrous horror/sci-fi/fantasy books, movies and plays? Know someone who fits this bill? Willing to introduce me to them ASAP? 👻
I'm seeking individuals for guest blogs and Facebook or Instagram lives and videos in the days leading up to Halloween - everyone from film industry performers and crew, theatre company artists, publishers and literary/magazine editors and other arts & entertainment personalities and curators, to psychologists and therapists, to academics in the arts and humanities, and other potential "experts"! 👽
We'll talk B-movies and cult-comedy-horror, bringing a little more awareness to some of the most entertaining art! 💀
Contact me at firstname.lastname@example.org or through Facebook Messenger and help me connect with these aficionados and experts! 😈
I had such a wonderful time at the Royal Medieval Faire this past Saturday! 🐲
The draw winners have been notified and I await their responses! 📚
All sold out of first run hardcover copies of Sloth the Lazy Dragon and only a few other softcovers left. Thank you to everyone who purchased a copy...may your whole family enjoy this Dragon's tale. 🐉
From the Mirror World Publishing website:
The much anticipated sequel to Unreachable Skies is finally here! In the first installment of this scifi/fantasy adventure we met Fate Seer Zarda and through her we learned of her people, the Drax, and the plague they had suffered which resulted in the next generation being born without wings.
Now, the wingless and their dams have been banished and against their ruler’s wishes, Zarda has decided to join them and use her visions and the knowledge she received from her mentor to see them through. This, is Exile.
Check out Mirror World for more on this anticipated sequel!
Join me as I read Sloth the Lazy Dragon (and other stories) under the Story Tent at the 2019 Royal Medieval Faire in Waterloo, Ontario!

We had a great time this weekend at the Cabbagetown Festival!
Puss in Boots was a big success, there were chicken calls at Riverdale Farm, BBQ at Parks and Snacks, tons of yard sales and the street festival was hopping!
Winners of the draw for a free book will be notified later today...
...and next up, Sloth the Lazy Dragon, as read by the Dragon Princess at Waterloo's Royal Medieval Faire, Saturday, September 21st! 🐉🐉🐉
Once again I will join the Cabbagetown Theatre Company at the Necropolis Chapel (200 Winchester Street, Toronto) during the Cabbagetown Festival Saturday September 7th and Sunday September 8th!
This year, the theatre company presents Puss n' Boots.
And this year, I am bringing all five of my picture books and my family friendly novella, Space Zombies!, as well as the DVD on which the novella is based!
From the Cabbagetown Festival site:
"Cabbagetown is one of the most diverse neighbourhoods in the city. Home to residents from over 190 countries, Cabbagetown represents everything that makes Toronto great. Hardworking, joyful, and diverse, Cabbagetowners are united by a love of their neighbourhood.
The Cabbagetown Festival is a celebration of this spirit. Bringing together hundreds of local businesses, guest vendors, and entertainers, the Festival is a thank you to the community."
