Babble Cafe and Books Opening At The Lanes In Inworldz

Image
Babble Cafe and Books has opened a new location at The Lanes, a very smart shopping district operated by Cherry Charlesworth and Veronika Garzo in Inworldz.  The shop is still "under construction" and probably always will be.  But it's starting to take shape.  Feel free to pop in whenever you like. 
At The Lanes, Hex and I will be hosting events at the cafe and in the luscious Lily Lanes Ballroom. The first of those ballroom events will be held Friday, May 26 at 5PM Grid Time.  It will be a night of tango! We hope you'll stick a rose between your teeth, don your formal dancing shoes and join us!

Tuesday, the 23rd, Freda will host Fine Arts Talk at 11:30 AM Grid Time in the Cafe.  This is a time for artists of all kinds (as well as their patrons and fans) to discuss the arts that are their passions.  There is no agenda for this session.  The discussion takes us where it takes us.  

Thursday, May 25, Freda will host a quiet write-in, starting at 4 AM Grid Time.  This …

Ballroom Dancing With a Twist
This Week:  Music From The Rat PackJoin Freda and Hex in The Lily Lanes Ballroom in InWorldz for some great music and lively conversation.  Each week, Freda puts together a stream of music from a specific historical period or a specific artist or on a specific theme.  One week it might be all Strauss-- the next all Rod Stewart or songs about moonlight.  You are not required to dress for the theme.  We will be thrilled to have you come in anything you want to wear, but costumes are encouraged.

This Week's Highlighted Event (And an Honorable Mention)

Image
Ballroom Dancing,  The Juliet Letters performed by Elvis Costello and The Brodsky Quartet 5:00 PM Tuesday The Hall at Freda's Place, InWorldz http://places.inworldz.com/Mille/59/46/40
The Juliet Letters is the 14th studio album by the British rock singer and songwriter Elvis Costello, released on compact disc as Warner Brothers 45180. The entire instrumental backing is provided by The Brodsky String Quartet. Costello described the album as "a song sequence for string quartet and voice and it has a title. It's a little bit different. It's not a rock opera. It's a new thing."

Join Freda and Hex in The Ballroom for some great music and lively conversation.

I'm Baaa-aaack!

After a season of rest, I'm back to work and writing in virtual worlds!  This new tale is a prequel, which will focus on Ermengarde's friendship with Fira, a blue dragon, and her quest for the one thing her father says he most wants, a star of his own.  In this story, the princess is just 14 years old but already a formidable young woman obviously destined for greatness. 

I've begun creating settings and character portraits.  Here are a couple of those portraits, just to whet readers' appetites for fantasy.
