Friday Fantasy - also remember next Monday!

My sister, Dragon, lured me into shopping last Friday since she was going to Michaels, had a great coupon, and going shopping for arty stuff with her is always fun.

I looked at the pre-made wreaths, especially one in all purple, but they were too expensive. So, I thought, I bet I can get a few things to make a wreath I'd really like. I spent more than I would have for a pre-made wreath, but I'm also finding more joy in this one, so I had to share:



I also took a couple of close-ups, since this is clearly more reflective of my role as fantasy-writer than my role as paralegal, even though it's hanging on my office door at work.





As to Monday, that's when Subversion: Science Fiction & Fantasy tales of challenging the norm will be out, which includes a story written by R J Astruc and me called Scrapheap Angel.  If you're interested in buying the book, please consider ordering it on Monday.  If enough people order it that day, it will create additional visibility for the book.

In the meantime, if you go to crossedgenres, you can see some subversive trailers for the anthology.  Have fun!

Thank you for posting pictures of the wreath! It's absolutely lovely, and it looks to me like it could cover a lot of seasons.

Best of luck with the book sales on Monday!

I'm glad you enjoyed it. I do think it's more a Pagan Yule wreath than a Christmas wreath, but that's also appropriate.

My brother-in-law, on the other hand, said it looked like a wedding wreath to him.

Thanks for the good wishes!

the wreath is lovely.

Is the book on Amazon? I can't find it.

Thank you!

I don't think the book is available anywhere before Monday. I'll be sure to post Sunday night or Monday with at least one link! However, you can see the cover here: http://crossedgenres.com/announcements/subversion-science-fiction-fantasy-tales-of-challenging-the-norm/

Great wreath. Remember: A thing of beauty need not be limited to special seasons or occasions.

That's true, however, things that you use in season have a kind of power too. And I do have this on the door at work, so fitting into expectations to some degree is important--though I am very pleased to have snuck the dragons in!!!

Perhaps I'll come up with a new decoration for my door for other different seasons, though. I really am enjoying having this special thing there now.

Excellent point on the seasonal items having a type of power. I hadn't considered that.

The purple dragons mixed with white doves is wonderful.

Thank you.

One advantage of seasonal things is that I get bored easily. Having an office with no window exacerbates that problem in a visual/experiential sense. This wreath is helping alleviate that!
