November!

NOVEMBER

(Photo Cred) Tia Brady

Had a festive Halloween month one of the highlights was the

Haunt at Kings Dominion. Always a spooky fun time. The pic above is of the Eiffel Tower at the theme park lit up for the Haunt : ) Also went to a holiday open house . . .

And my updated books for

“A Dead Ringer for Katie Rock Star”

(BOOK ONE & TWO) are available.

The Links to the paperback and eBook are under my Book tab

below a pic of the updated eBook:

And the hardcopies arrived on my front porch last week . . .

They Look Great:

The models look like they are on a cloud —

which I love.

And appropriate since an

Angel and Knight themed series . . . 

AND ALTHOUGH AN UPDATED BOOK ONE & TWO ARE AVAILABLE

 the Amazon KDP & CreateSpace merged so I’m still having some technical problems with the new paperbacks on Amazon but they are available at Barnes & Noble.

The technical issues should be fixed soon but may have a different inside format.

 I will share when available . . .

And Book Two Real Time is available in hardback at Barnes & Noble (part two of my three book mystery). The front flap below will be part of the design for my bookmarks:hardback two 23

 

 

AND HALLOWEEN FESTIVITIES INCLUDED 

Movie Night, Comic-con, Theme Park Haunt, and Beauty and the Beast live.

And while at the haunt – Lorde’s cover of “Everybody Wants to Rule the World” was played which is also in the Assassin’s Creed Unity Trailer. It is an epic cover and perfect for Halloween. Below is choreography I came across which uses that song. I also added it to my faves on my author YouTube.

And although I’ve been dancing since the age of two – I only first came across modern dance while in college . . .

Check out the song and modern choreography below:

And November 4 is daylight savings – not a fan

but been hiking as usual. Below are a couple of my favorite pics from my camera roll from September:

and what’s to come for

November and December:

A HOLIDAY GIVEAWAY & BLITZ for my two books in December

(I will announce the date) and what will be included in the giveaway – 

(but hardcopies of both book one and two) will be a part of it, with the final book in this mystery available in March of next year . . .

And the film “Bohemian Rhapsody” hits theatres this weekend (which is one of my most anticipated films) picked up the soundtrack, and  just saw “First Man” which was about Astronaut Neil Armstrong (the first man to walk on the moon) July 1969. It was a good film, well made, no fluff, and sad. It also asks how important space travel really is.

I will be attending Winterfest, seeing the show “Merrily We Roll Along” which opens tonight, participating in Neko-Con, and the Rave Ons (one of my interviewee’s) will be in town with his band to perform their holiday show A Rockabilly Christmas (check his interview, video’s, and links) on the ‘Rock and Roll Interview One’ tab if you haven’t gotten a chance, plus, Miss Saigon hits the Kennedy Center, and Dave Matthews will be in concert.   Freddie and Jason (left) I picked up from the holiday open house last month (love the itty’s) clever:  IMG_1362

My new author web site (which is in the midst of being created) should be live by December with new Author Photo’s.  And I will share some book location inspiration and more.

I’ve also been listening to a few books on audible while tackling

the daily grind:

I also
recently found out Miss Saigon is coming to the Kennedy Center in December and I will definitely be adding that to my list of live performances to see. Never have seen it and am super excited . . .

As usual this week has been busy, but Some LOCATION INSPIRATION FOR WINGS UNIVERSITY

the local University in the town of Angel Bay (the setting for my series) also where my heroine went to college . . .

#organizing

NIGHT STUDYING

October is alumni weekend and homecoming

for a couple of colleges I attended (I will be participating in those) – author fun fact I attended two Universities for my college studies . . .

And as

HALLOWEEN

 approaches (which I love) — I’ve narrowed my costume choices to three

The one I’m leaning towards is Julie (for me) — and R for (significant other) – from the Zombie flick “Warm Bodies”.  He wanted me to choose:

warmbodies

The flowers are a must for R’s costume below . . .

plus I have the wardrobe (so it’s easy and quick). The makeup will be the most challenging part – but fun.

And it’s such a good Halloween flick

cstm

My favorite fright night movie is Joss Whedon’s “Cabin in the Woods” or the film “Fright Night”  (for fright night) the original and the 2011 version . . .

And I revisited the movie of a favorite childhood Book

last week . . .

THE OUTSIDERS

Timeless!

Have a great Monday!

Happy Reading, Tia

Schedule, Excerpt & More!

TEA TIME

I’m overwhelmed with my schedule, so I may update one more time before my book’s release on June 2, 2018…

I really need some days off, a spa week would be nice because (I want to feel pretty)!

This sums it up…

veronica1

Editing, editing, and more editing (and tonight I will be editing) again

So it’s a date with my computer and coffee…

sun cover

I’d much rather be outdoors (above)…

AND ALL WORK & NO PLAY MAKES JACK A DULL BOY right?…

So, I did take time to watch Edgar Wright’s Baby Driver an (incredible movie)

vinyl baby2

 Edgar Wright is a favorite director of mine, who also directed the Scott Pilgrim movie, another great film & favorite with a similar vibe

I loved the movie so much I added a clip from it to my favorites playlist (on my Author YouTube) check it if you get a chance…

The SONG

And some upcoming author and music related events:

EVENTS TO LOOK FORWARD TO & WORK

(I make lists) keeps me on track (My frugal find) list maker’s for One Dollar at Target

(in their bargain bin)

Live Concerts & Shows, a Book Party, Travel & Trips (new & old), Photo Shoots, collaborating with new colleagues . . .

    And Below are some personal pics (of my house) the backyard where I saw a bobcat (sorry no pic of the bobcat) and a beautiful owl landed on my deck a couple of times recently (I will try to get pics). He just sat there looking beautiful. So many creatures in my neck of the woods (just like my book) would love to do a Big Year…

My house reminds me of one of my favorite scary movies written by Director & Writer extraordinaire Joss Whedon…

CABIN IN THE WOODS

What do you think? Definitely a cabin in the woods vibe (although my house is in a neighborhood)…

Cabin is in my top 100 films…

FINALLY an Excerpt (the final one) for my upcoming book two (June 2, 2018)!

excerptrealtimetwo

I may create one more but most likely won’t have the time until after my book is out…

And advice…

slack2

Not so sure if that’s true (development) has been interesting,

but it is good advice cause ignorance is bliss

Thanks for reading & following!

Hope everyone has a good week,

 Tia
