Time shambles forward, clumsy, cumbersome cogs crushing us beneath its graceless bulk. At least that’s what it feels some days. Other days it feels like “Time flies like an arrow. Fruit flies like a banana.” (Groucho Marx?). We just have to hope for the best as the big ball of wibbly wobbly, timey wimey stuff (thank you Doctor Who, you always have right wordsies for every situation) drags us along on its universal joyride.

Spending time reading M.J. Mallon’s first book in the series, “The Curse of Time: Bloodstone”, I must warn you, could fill you with magic and mystery, intrigue and imagination, romance and possible fear of ruination and the worst part, you may not be able to put it down. Start reading only when you have time (hint: make time).

Under the Sea: A Virtual Art Show and Blog Party

In June, Teagan Geneviene invited me to do a virtual art show on her blog.

This was after I told her I’d met an art dealer who advised me to organize
an online portfolio.

I’m clueless about such things.

Teagan and I figured a virtual art show would give me a way to practice building a portfolio.

When she mentioned having the art show on an imaginary submarine I staged a shot in VR to use as an invite and wound up making a storyboard of Cornelis Drebbel’s undersea search for the lost paintings of Rob Goldstein.

I turned the storyboard into a video based on silent era news shorts.

The Drebbel video is a bit OTT, you’ll see what I mean when you watch it.

I’m honored Teagan chose to highlight my work on Teagn’s Books and
delighted that she let me play with Cornelis Drebbel.

Well done, Cornelis Drebbel!

I hope I did him justice.

The party at Teagan’s Books and it’s ongoing.

A “Revealing” Straightlaced Saturday — & Cornelis Drebbel 6

Cornelis Drebbel 6 and a shout out to Mae Claire and the new cover of her next novel.

Teagan's Books

Saturday, September 15, 2018

Did the allure of the word “revealing” lure you to my clutches? I’m giving a shout-out to the fabulous Mae Clair who has just revealed the delicious cover of her next novel!

Book cover for End of Day, mystery/suspense novel by Mae Clair shows old dilapidated church with bell tower and a cemetery in the background overgrown with weeds

The big release of the book won’t be until January, but you can pre-order End of Day here.  I don’t know about you, but I can’t wait — sooo you can go ahead and read Cusp of Night to which the new book will be a follow-on.  (Hint-hint.)

Now, Felicity and Cornelis have their hands full so lets get on with the Straightlaced Saturday episode of Copper, the Alchemist, and the Woman in Trousers

Previously with Copper, the Alchemist, and the Woman in Trousers

Chapter 5.  Naughty chimpanzees ran amok, stealing the corpse of the still unknown man, and knocking Felicity out cold.  She found the “flat sounding pop” with…
