A Lot of Chirruping ~ A Newsletter is Born

But but but why this sudden Chirrup obsession? 

You may well ask. Well I do adore this blog, and I love you for reading it, but I also want something a little more intimate and slightly less, oh I don’t know.. exposed? Perhaps that’s not quite the right word, but you know what I mean. Also I like the idea that you don’t have to remember to come to me. I can just pop into your inbox once a month. (Ooo, kinky.)

Perhaps my obsession with newsletters reminds you of something else book related? Yes, self is speculating on new ventures. But as such ventures are about a year and half out, they really are only speculations. (And I hope we all know how Dickens felt about such things, ref. Nicholas Nickleby).

Speaking of the newsletter, I have added in an Editorial Feature (Gail’s Warble) wherein I offer up a few choice tidbits and may even include some sneak peeks of things before they go live on blog/website ~ like deleted scenes.

See? See? Chirrup! You know you want to.

“Artists, authors, and all other persons to whom “time is money,” and whose income stops whenever their hands and eyes are unemployed, are peculiarly annoyed by the frequency of introductory letters, brought by people with whom they can feel no congeniality, and whom they never would have sought for.”

Book News:
Cora Linn reviews Curious Case, “I loved this short about Alexia’s father and Floote. It was fun and paved the way for so much MORE in this already fantastic world. It revealed a little more about the history of the characters and how the world was developing.”

Quote of the Day:
“The woman just ahead of you at the supermarket checkout has all the delectable groceries you didn’t even know they carried.”
