This Week So Far…

… has been difficult thus far, as anyone who has read our previous blog post can attest, but life must go on. In that spirit, I (Christopher) would like to announce the winners of two recent free giveaways. As I mentioned before, we are still going to award books to winners from the Comicpalooza giveaway… it just took us several weeks to announce the winners. Now, with Space City Con, our delay has been a few days, but that is due to our recent tragedy. In addition, I would like to advise our readers of our remaining 2013 appearances, as well as our budding 2014 calendar.

Interviews and More Interviews

Authors Heather and Christopher

Heather and I (Christopher) have been interviewed again, and I thought I should provide links so all of our wonderful fans don’t have to go hunting for them. We have also been working on our 2013 calendar of appearances.

Salado Scottish Festival and Highland Games

Just a few weekends ago we attended the Salado Scottish Festival and Highland Games in Salado, Texas. What a time we had… As we were unpacking our truck to set up our tent at the fair grounds, Heather and I noticed that our tent frame had broken in transit, and without parts it was irreparable. With no tent frame, we rushed to the Walmart in Belton and then the Academy in Temple, before we found a tent we thought would work. After driving all the way back to Salado, we soon realized that this tent would never hold up to any sort of rain or wind (the roof came in layers, you see, with big openings where one layer overlayed another). This would not do… so we rushed back to Temple’s Academy and exchanged the tent. This one also, we found out, was not rated for wind or rain (you don’t learn these things unless you open the box and look at the directions inside… neither the website nor the box mentioned these important facts.) So, we used the roof and sides from the other tent (the broken one).

Where to Start? 2012 Appearances

I (Christopher) have been running ragged trying to book events for next year, of course as some of you in the biz know, some places won’t start accepting applications (or send you invitations) until 3 to 3 months out. However, one venue is way on the ball… Comicpalooza, and they are in late May… yet at this moment, vendor applications are available on-line. Wow… So, to finish off this year’s appearances, we have the Magick Cauldron this weekend, followed by Sherwood Forest Celtic Music Festival and HPPD in September and the Salado Scottish Festival in November. Heather and I are both working to add some smaller venues somewhere in that time-frame, so keep checking your calendar. Some of you recall that we had previously listed the Austin Celtic Festival, but because of their small size and that most of their prior years’ vendors came back, they had no room for us; maybe next year. For dates and links, visit our events page on our website.

Free Giveaway Winners, Events, and other News

Author Christopher Dunbar in a kilt

Author Christopher Dunbar in a kiltAh… time to breathe. We have had so much going on in the last few months that I (Christopher) have fallen behind on actual work… writing, and whatnot. Well, it looks like we are between events, so I should be able to catch a bit of a break. Today, I will belatedly be releasing the winners of the free giveaway we held for Comicpalooza (at the end of May), and I will be reminding everyone of our other free giveaway through Goodreads.  Also, here is a picture of me in a kilt.  This is the ancient hunting MacIntyre tartan worn as a great kilt [also called Breacan an Fhéilidh (belted plaid) or Féileadh Mòr (great plaid)].  The doublet is a Pendragon, the feather is a pheasant tail feather, the I made the sporran.  You can often find me kilt clad at these events, though the last few indoor events I was bereft of a kilt.  I shall have to make up for it in the future.

We have some exciting prospects coming up towards the second half of this year, though as in previous years, there seems to be fewer events we attend in Q3 and Q4 than we attend in Q1 and Q2. Still, plenty of events for you to come out and see us or listen to us read aloud. Let’s see… there is Space City Con, the Salado Scottish Festival and Highland Games, and even the Sherwood Forest Celtic Music Festival, among others. That’s another observation of our events… most of the events in Q3 and Q4 are outdoor venues, whereas most events we attended in Q1 and Q2 were indoor events. Strange.

In addition, we are always looking for more events to attend, so we hope to be adding to this list.
