An Island of Books

I recently set up a book shop on Book Island, a region in Second Life that celebrates books, readers, storytellers, authors – if it’s literary, it’s here. Come visit! I have a free book waiting for you, and a cozy chair to read it in. Book Island hosts many events, too – there’s author talks and readings, writing events to keep writers motivated, and lots of book shops like mine. My shop is located at http://maps.secondlife.com/secondlife/Book%20Island/196/248/496

Every shop needs a sign, and this is mine
The view in from the sidewalk. That little book on the tentacle table? It’s free! You can have one. I’ve also added a free gift box with fun things and informative notecards to that table now, too.
Cozy Kitty chairs are for you to curl up in, relax, and read.
I don’t have radiators, but I do have a steamy cookbook to cozy up the place.
The book shop that also fulfills all your circus cannon needs. The “No Boom Today” is for sale for a mere ten Lindens. Just click it and buy one. It’s made of high quality old-school mesh and prims. Antiques are cool, right?
And I had a blank spot on a wall, so I thought, why not sell a few of my classic boats? The Clean Getaway is a seaworthy bubble blowing bathtub, and the Over Easy is both driveable and delicious. It can be consumed if you become shipwrecked on a desert island.
On a cool Autumn night, step inside to warm up and rest.
The street outside my shop is a gathering place for literary events. Isn’t this a nice neighborhood?

Frankenstein on Fantasy Faire Radio

“I have love in me the likes of which you can scarcely imagine and rage the likes of which you would not believe. If I cannot satisfy the one, I will indulge the other.”
~ from Frankenstein, by Mary Wollenscroft Shelley

Frankenstein is back! Last year FFR partnered with Seanchai Library for a live broadcast of a radio drama adaptation of the Mary Shelley classic. Did we record it and produce it? You BET we did! We will be airing this 2-hour presentation twice, and you won’t want to miss it. The cast features Zander Greene, Elrik Merlin, David Abbot, Corwyn Allen, Caledonia Skytower, with Shandon Loring as Frankenstein’s Creation.

Saturday, October 19th beginning at 2pm slt
Sunday, October 20th beginning at 11am

The CocoaJava Cafe in New Babbage will be one of the venues hosting listening parties during both presentations. http://maps.secondlife.com/secondlife/Babbage%20Canals/38/75/106

The CocoaJava Cafe (A Writer’s Haven~A Reader’s Retreat~A Bohemian’s Rhapsody) is a casual Steampunk/Victorian literary coffeehouse. Authors and bookworms are often found lounging on floor pillows by the fireplace or sipping a drink at the cafe tables. The CocoaJava features a state of the art absinthe fountain, and red wine served from… well, it’s a pipe dream. Oh and mind the shop cat, he’s odd.

More information on listening parties will be posted closer to the broadcast date. Check the Fantasy Faire website for details as they emerge: https://fantasyfairesl.wordpress.com/
