My apologies for the lack of posts of late. I've been busy, busy, busy. In addition to the exciting world of freelance writing, I've also been constructing a number of large papier-mache pieces for a number of window displays at Shaman Drum Bookshop for the upcoming months. Because these things are easier to make outdoors, and dry faster when the weather is warm, I've been trying to get a bunch of these done all at once over the summer, which can cause some weird seasonal confusion when making a 4-foot tall snowman in 84 degree heat in September. I've also been trying to get as many other projects completed, and out of the way as possible, so that I can fully embrace celebrating Halloween for the entire month of October with work intruding as little as possible.
Speaking of Halloween, while the posts have been few and far between over the summer, beginning October 1st, there will be several posts a day here as I begin my second annual month long Halloween countdown. If you missed last year's check the archives. On October 1st, I'll tell you more of what you can expect this year.
In the meantime, here are a batch of small, quick, themed displays I put together for one of the alcoves in Shaman Drum's children's book section.
