Today's Fable Tribe update will be posted live at three PM in its entirety! See the update preview at our Flickr, and stay tuned for magic! <3

Update days always have a hint of festival energy about them. Usually, Jenn's been taking the pictures since crazy o'clock in the morning, and when I get up, there's just excitement in the air. All of the pretties that we made, all of the magic that we spun, everything we've worked so hard for--we're about to show it to everyone. I make approximately eighteen thousand cups of tea, set up the laptop, then go over the pictures that Jenn's taken. You can ALWAYS tell the difference between my pictures and her pictures, BECAUSE SHE'S ACTUALLY A VERY GOOD PHOTOGRAPHER, and I'm always like YE GODS I AM GLAD YOU TOOK THEM. :P

I actually prefer the doing all of the update bits behind a curtain, then flinging back the flaps of the "tent" at a specific time, so that everyone can come in at once. There's a certain magic to that.

I've been doing these updates for quite a long time, now, and the day always has the same energy. Excitement. Happiness. Satisfaction. Magic.

Looooooooooooooooooots of tea.

Orca's perched on my shoulder right now. He reminds me that a DIFFERENT kind of magic happened EARLIER THIS MORNING:

I GIVE YOU: Link and Sporkin, love birds.


See you at three! And happy Friday!! <3

So, since finishing Moth, Jenn and I have been non-stop at work on the next Fable Tribe update...which is tonight at eight o'clock, EST! I'm uploading everything now (while munching on one of the cortland apples we picked in the orchard on Sunday, and drinking violet tea. BECAUSE THIS IS WHAT YOU MUST DO WHEN YOU UPDATE THE FABLE TRIBE. ;D <3), and will set the shop live at eight tonight!

See the update preview at our Flickr! Seeker Stone sets, Blessing Bowls, hair flowers and spoon pendants. <3

We finished everything up for the update today, so I haven't been outside yet. To those of you who know me, this comes as no surprise, but I'm kind of a wild hooligan MOST months, but fall is my worst. XD I MUST BE OUTSIDE EVERY DAY FOR MULTIPLE HOURS, OR I TURN INTO A PUMPKIN (actual results may vary XD). I'm going to push through adding everything into the shop, and then I really hope there's enough time to go cavort at Swallow Hollow. This is the most beautiful day. <3 (To combat this while I was finishing up Moth, even if I'd worked fifteen hours straight on it during the day, I had to go for a walk. Even at one o'clock in the morning. In the rain. <--might have done so multiple times. Autumn fills me, sustains me, makes me feel alive, and I need to be part of every second of it.)

*has been vibrating in place at the table all day staring at the out-of-doors*

*updates faster*

Last but not least! I posted this in a Tumbl last night, but I'm putting it here, too. <3

You asked, we answered! Many of you wonderful, sparkly people have asked us how you can purchase signed paperback editions of our books…and now you can! I’ve created the Sappho’s Boutique Etsy shop. It has signed editions of all of our paperback books currently out, and some eReader editions, for those people who asked for a way to purchase the eReader copies directly from us. ♥

Thank you so much, guys, you’re wonderful! Let us know what you think of the shop. ♥

Because we chose to focus solely every day on my most recent manuscript, The Fable Tribe suffered in September with NO UPDATE. This is a tragedy that we are rectifying!

Stay tuned tomorrow for magic! <3 <3 <3

Oh my goodness. So, at crazy o'clock this morning, my mum calls me in a panic. Her car has a flat tire (WORST TIMING EVER), Dad is already at work (he goes very early), and one of her dogs, A, has an infection that Mum thinks has turned into pyometra (my Mum has been breeding dogs since before I was born, still is). You don't want to know what pyo is, trust me. Can I come and take her and said pup to the vet? (Pyo can kill VERY quickly if it's not operated on.) So, today is the Fable Tribe update, but I drop everything to rush to their house, and then proceed to wait eleventy billion hours in the vet's office with a very worried Mum and very sick dog who was very sad. :( :( :( (I spent all morning hugging her. Oh my goodness, that poor baby. ;-; She's related to my Newfoundland soulmate, Beethoven, so it was devastating to see her like that.)

Jenn, being amazing beyond reason, EVEN THOUGH SHE HAS NOT UPDATED AN ETSY SHOP IN ELEVENTY BILLION YEARS, got up super early, took all of the pictures, and began the update. ;-; <3 <3 <3

So! I'm finally home! A is in surgery (she *did* have the infection, but it was detected, and can be operated on, so she's going to be okay hopefully--good thoughts appreciated!), Mum is feeling relieved and happy, and ALL of the Glamourkins are already added to the shop because I have the best wife in the ENTIRE COSMOS. ;-; <--weepy with gratitude.

So, all I have left to do is the hair flowers and Seeker Stone sets! Want to follow along with the rest? See the last bit of what's coming at our Flickr, and follow along with the last part of the update our Etsy shop!
