A LIFE LESSON
I’ve learned something while traveling these past few months: there are crazy people no matter where you go. There also people who are mean, and wonderful, and strange, and awkward, and deranged, and beautiful. The only kind of people I haven’t met, the kind I’ve come to believe do not exist, are normal ones.

D*H SUMMER PLAYING CARDS!
Look at these!
Disney*Hyperion made these awesome playing cards, and THE NEAR WITCH got all the 7s! These packs were apparently snatched up REALLY fast at BEA, but I plan to give a couple sets away during my SEVEN WEEKS TO THE NEAR WITCH giveaways.
SEVEN WEEKS OF GIVEAWAYS
Wait, what? You say. What is this SEVEN WEEKS TO THE NEAR WITCH giveaway stuff? You better explain.
My two-month marker, just days away, will not involve anything special over HERE (but there will still be SIGNED, FINISHED, FIRST-EDITION copies of TNW on the NW rappers’ blogs!! I’ll post links), but that’s because I’ll be gearing up for the SEVEN WEEKS marker. Starting Monday, June 13th, something special will happen.
Every Monday, at 9AM, I will announce a giveaway.
The giveaways will only last 24 HOURS, with the winner being announced 9AM Tuesday.
The giveaways will get bigger each week. They will each have a theme. And they will ALL be chock full o’ awesome.
LONDON BLOGGER PEOPLE
I am going to be in London for a day and a half! If you want to try and meet up at some point, email me at vschwab at comcast dot net! We’ll see if we can make it happen.
A GLIMPSE OF FRANCE
Heading back to the UK tomorrow for my last three days before HOME. Here is just a handful of pics from the France trip. Will do a full Europe photo post when I’m back in Nashville…
The Forest of Huelgoat…
The Witch’s House, or I Want to Live Here (Manoir de Ker-Huella, Morlaix)…
This town is a Van Gogh painting (Belle Isle en Terre)…
Among the Devil’s Rocks (Huelgoat)…
The guard dog at the Witch’s House (Manoir de Ker-Huella, Morlaix)…
And now to wander the Paris streets for my last night, maybe get a crepe, do a touch of writing…the possibilities are endless and the time is short.
