Join Me for the Winter Wonderland Scavenger Hunt

Soooo, what are you doing November 20 to December 17? Join me for the Winter Wonderland Scavenger Hunt put on by Night Owl Reviews. As one of the sponsors, during this event I’m going to help you find some great new books and authors. Make sure you check out Fairly Certain along the way.

The Grand Prize is a Gift Card from Amazon for $100!

Save the Dates!

This is the first contest in which I have participated. I’m absurdly excited. It’s a Scavenger Hunt for blurbs from different books, including Fairly Certain. It is not necessary to read the entire book; just the blurb. It’s a great way to be introduced to new works and authors.Fill in the missing word from the blurb.

Win Amazon Gift Cards from a $1300 Prize Pool!

The CT Renaissance Faire

Where can you swing a sword in Connecticut and not get into trouble? The CT Renaissance Faire, of course. Step away from reality and stroll into fantasy.

What to wear? You don’t have to dress up, but you’ll have more fun if you do. We’re close to Halloween so all the costume shops are stocked. Or, you can pick up a handmade gown, cape, tunic, pants, or even boots at the faire. It’s worth the investment because, unlike bridesmaids dresses, you can wear this again.

Visit the Living History Encampment and learn about the German women who accompanied the troops.

Imbibe some mead.          Chomp on a turkey leg.          Watch entertainers on a variety of stages.

Get your fortune told.          Join a parade.          Be a spectator at a joust.          Learn about old-time crafts:

Listen or sing along to music.          Relive history.          Attend Knight School.

Be enchanted by fairies.          Gobble Dragon Ice Cream.

   The CT Renaissance Faire will have you wiggling with delight.

My first CT Renaissance Faire in Guilford gave rise to my first book, Fairly Certain, was born. Let’s see how inspired you get when you visit the faire. I’ll return to the Faire October 24. You can find me at the Booksellers Booth from 1-3:00. I’d love to see your costume.
