Fall Happenings


Summer is almost over and Fall is just around the corner. And Autumn is my favorite time of the year. :)

There has also been a lot going on over here. First, I am happy to announce that my novel Descent (The Birthrite Series, #1) is part of a special edition subscription book box this coming October. This year, Author Ashley Nestler started up the Go Indie Now! Subscription Book Box as a way of helping to promote independent authors (authors that are either self-published or on a smaller indie press) to new readers. My book Descent will be part of their special edition Celtic Lore - Myths & Legends Box. I am also honored to be helping curate this box (along with the Shadows that Linger October themed box) with items from my forthcoming scent line, Antiquity & Illusion, which will be released later this month.

Antiquity & Illusion will feature potpourri, candles, aroma beads, wax tarts, and more made with very high quality essential oils, beeswax and soy wax. I have had wonderful experiences with "previewing" my product line by donating some of the items to be raffled off at a couple charity events. Now, I am thrilled to be officially releasing them this October through my online store and the book box. There should be still time to subscribe to both the Celtic Lore and Shadows Linger boxes. Both will be going out in October and are featuring either my literature or/and items from my Antiquity & Illusion product line:

Speaking of books (mine, as well as the books of others), this passed April, I participated as an author in the Brain 2 Books Cyber Con. Because I was relatively new to something like this, my participation was minimal, meaning I had my own virtual booth and entered my novel Descent in a raffle. In next year's con, I will be participating on a greater level, including hosting blog tours at my blog. This won't be taking place until April of 2017, so I will be posting news as further developments for the event are made. But in the meantime, check out the website:

On the music front, I am now officially involved with two historical music acts (in addition to my own musical projects). I recently performed with the Pittsburgh Historical Music Society at the Depreciation Lands Museum's Ice Cream Social back in July. Here are a couple videos from that performance:



I will be making more appearances with the orchestra in their future concert dates (which will also be posted on the Shows & Events page of my website). I have also been invited to join the Wayward Companions (a sort of 'off-shoot' from the orchestra). My first performance with them will be at the Depreciation Lands Museum's Tavern Night, taking place in Allison Park, PA this Saturday evening (September 10). In addition to my Wayward Companion performance at Tavern Night, I will also be entertaining patrons with stories and other songs of the 18th century taverns (or 'ordinaries').
