Well Hello There!





So I'm back in Brooklyn after a week in Georgia. I had a fabulous time at the Decatur Book Festival. The highlight? Meeting blog regular EQ! Thanks so much for coming, EQ. You're every bit as dangerous as I expected you to be!

(By the way, I'll post a full list of my trips soon. And yes, I will be in Chicago in the near future!)

Now back to business. I've been meaning to post about the ring shown above. It was made from a copy of Sherlock Holmes! (Not sure which book, though.) Artist Jeremy May has been fashioning rings from a wide range of classic novels. (See them here.) Now if only I could get my hands on a Kiki Strike ring. (Which should come with a secret compartment for hiding poisons, small documents, or Liquid Roadkill.)

Looks a bit bulky, but you gotta love secret compartments. Who do we request it from? The publishers? I bet we could get them to do something like that (or something else cool) if they thought it would help the publicity of bk 3 when it comes out.

...Of course, we could always resort to blackmail. I'm sure publishers have juicy secrets just like anyone else.

Speaking of Sherlock Holmes, today my friends and I had an idea for a a kiddy TV show version of the stories, and the catch phrase of this juvenile equivalent would be "it's elementary school, my dear Watson" :)

MushroomCloud: YES. I HATE how Sherlock is an addict, he's supposed to be so awesome--he's so smart and yet dumb enough to get hooked on opium... :'-(

Anonymus: by who? (/what) How do you know? And who needs Ghostbusters when you've got Irregulars?

They should make ones from shows. Except with necklaces. Like that glowing-magic-heart-necklace from Wizards of Waverly Place. Check out my blog all about the show at luvwowp.blogspot.com!
