Canadian Romance Facebook Party

There’s another Facebook party coming up, on March 8. This one will showcase the authors who participate in the Romance, Canadian Eh blog (where I blog on the 23rd of each month). I’m looking forward to getting to know more about my fellow authors there, especially as a number of us are attending the Romancing the Capital readers’ conference in April. As well as chat, there will also be prizes, of course.

I’ll be on at 8PM eastern. (Remember that the time changes early Sunday morning – it’s time to spring forward!) The Facebook event is right here. I hope to see you Sunday night!

New Swag – Jewelry

This new swag was also inspired by Coastal Magic Reader Conference. They had a number of vendors there, Including Leslie’s shop Aunt Matilda’s Jewelry Box with wonderful steampunk-medieval-pirate jewelry. I bought a pair of dragon earrings, and on the way home had an idea. Leslie was excited about it and so we have Dragonfire Earrings.

Dragonfire Earrings

Leslie created these earrings to match the colors of the Pyr. The earrings have Czech glass crystals that catch the light. From the top left, we have Quinn, Donovan and Erik. In the second row from left we have Delaney, Niall and Rafferty. In the third and last row, we have Lorenzo, Brandon and Thorolf. Leslie has written the name of the appropriate Pyr on the back of the earring card in silver ink.

And not to forget our special girl, the star of the Dragon Diaries and the Wyvern-to-be, here’s earrings for Zöe:

Zöe the Wyvern heroine of The Dragon Diaries by Deborah Cooke

Leslie also created some medieval jewelry for me for Kinfairlie. Look at this necklace, which I’m calling the Kinfairlie Cross and will be using for promotion for the True Love Brides Series. It’s quite large, more than four inches long, and the faceted stones are a beautiful shade of aquamarine. (They look a bit paler in the picture). Any of the sisters of Kinfairlie could have a necklace like this – I might need to write it into Elizabeth and Malcolm’s books!

Finally, Leslie created a Prometheus Project watch for me. It’s a bit steampunk, but has angel wings too – I can easily imagine Lilia wearing this:

Prometheus Project timepiece

I’ll be using these as prizes in contests and also in raffle baskets, but you’ll also be able to buy them directly from Leslie’s Etsy store. She’s created a page for the Dragonfire earrings, right here, where you can easily order a pair of earrings in the colors of your favorite Pyr. There’s also a listing for the Kinfairlie cross, and another one for the Prometheus Project steampunk crystal ball watch.

What do you think? I love them all!

Psst – there will be a contest for newsletter subscribers in May, with shiny prizes. Hmm. I wonder what those prizes could be…
