Post-Faire Litfest Tour Recap! (Personal Edition)
From The Author: It’s been my honour and pleasure to be involved in the Fantasy Faire Literary Festival for the last 8 years. Over that time, I’ve assisted with guests, hosted and participated in events, led and assisted many Litfest Tours, and generally seen myself as Saffia Widdershins’ Girl Friday. One of the things the… Continue readingAii&Ego, Analog Dog, Astoria, Banshee Heartsong, Belle Epoque, BMe, CKit Falconry, Clover, Cole's Corner, D.U.S.T., Doe, EarthStones, Eldowyn Inshan, Empire, Empyrean Forge, EnLight, Ersch, Fantasy World, Find the Fish, Friday, HarshLands, Idoru, Jinx, Julala Demina, Kadaj Yoshikawa, Legacy, Lelutka, Lil Cinnamon, lrriven, Maitreya, Marcus Inkpen, Mondi Beaumont, Moth & Moon, Naminoke, ND/MD, Nefakalum, Petrichor, Petrichor & Ersch, Poet's Heart, PolyPlace, R3D, rainnn, Rise Design, Rivendale, rnR, Robin Bell, Safe Haven, Saiyge Lotus, Secrets of Gaia, Sharni Azalee, SK, Soul, Sweet Kajira, Sweet Revolutions, Sweetgwendoline Bailey, Tam, TamLorn Carterhaugh Wood, Telperion Design, Tentacio, The Looking Glass, Tville, United Inishcon, Yokai
It’s never an ordinary walk, is it…
From Friðrós: Well, Her Majesty will want to know about this. So I should document it, I guess. I have a little camera, and Viska’s along with me, so she can help me take some photographs: Huldufólk, much as I wish it weren’t so, aren’t great with technology unless we’re in a Realm that’s bound… Continue reading
Adjusting Expectations in J’doube
I won’t lie to you: J’doube is madness. After eight years of working Faire Security (because, let’s face it, the so-called “Pawlice” are really for punters to have a laugh about, and someone has to do the heavy lifting), I have never seen a Realm like J’doube. So when they sent a few of us… Continue reading
Get involved with a mortal, they said. It’ll be fun, they said. You’ll get to see all sorts of amazing things, they said. Is this amazing, or what? I’m gonna go with, or what. I swear, you have a beautiful whirlwind courtship following your debut at Queen Charlotte’s, a classy wedding in Tuscany (cost a quarter of… Continue reading
Look! A Squirrel!
I thought it was time to give a more complete overview of Awenia Faerie and how it’s changing this summer, and of course as your Queen it made sense (to me, anyway) to start in the Royal Book Garden. The Royal Book Garden itself is linked to the Book Forest, of course; these places grow organically out… Continue reading
The Known Alone
Dear Gwyneth, I’ve begun this letter many times. Sometimes I even finish it. The first time, maybe even the first ten times, I wrote it, it started, continued, and ended with apologies. I think I’m past that now, which is one reason I hope that once I finish this letter, I may hit “send” and… Continue reading
Sometimes, you’ve gotta indulge. That’s exactly what I was thinking when one of my dearest friends in this Realm or any other, Danya, otherwise known as the irrepressible DJ Fae, pinged me to see how I was doing and if maybe I was free for lunch sometime this week. So I said, “I think I have a… Continue reading
Setting Up for Writing Retreat!
OK, so I just got here and have taken a couple of hours to put things together, and you guys are not going to believe this place! We’re going to have the best week ever. I met the Air B&B owners at their place in Awenia, and they showed me to the portal. I don’t know… Continue reading!go!, Aisling, An Lar, Atelier Visconti, Awenia, Birdie, Circa, Contraption, DaD, Dark Passions, EarthStones, Gos, Half Deer, Jackelope, Juna, Koffin Nails, Lelutka, Lumae, MadPea, Maitreya, MishMish, Oubliette, Raindale, Rivendale, Spell, Spyralle, Stormwood, The Annex, Tia, Trick Or Treat Lane, Trompe Loeil, Truth, Vespertine, Violetility
The Beautiful Age
I decorated the Parlour in the tree house. I found some beautiful salon furnishings from The Looking Glass at another one of those faraway shopping faires. This one is called The Secret Affair, and I regularly do a multi-Realm hop to get there whenever I hear that it’s on. And of course I found a beautiful new gown… Continue reading
Blink, and you could miss it….
There is always so much going on! If you’re not careful, you could miss stuff. For example, this month’s GENRE theme is Victorian! Genre is one of those events that has been going on for a few years and has had a few spikes and dips, but the last couple of months have been amazing. Last month was Viking,… Continue reading
