Dropping The Miss

You may have noticed a few changes over the last couple of days. New headers, new themes, and a new tagline (sorta). That is because, in a couple of days, I will no longer be Miss Alexandrina. Not legally, anyway. I'll still be Miss in the sense of follow-me-round-a-Victorian-street, feed-the-birds, takea-your-picture-miss? I haven’t changed. I’m … Continue reading Dropping The Miss

10 Days and Counting…

10 days to go. I repeat, 10 days to go. This is not a drill!   What I have enjoyed the most about wedding planning: - Organising everything from scratch. I got so much praise from my arguably-disorganised venue coordinator when I sent over my tables of menu choices, and it had been something that … Continue reading 10 Days and Counting…

June 2017 Wrap Up

Like, did I actually a) blog and b) do a wrap up post?? Blame Cait @ PaperFury for inspiring me. (Photo by Katherine Hinzman) Reading I finished ADAMANT by Emma L Adams. Thoughts/Mini Review? 3 1/2 out of 5 stars. I liked it, and the characters were quirky, but it was a pretty chunky read, … Continue reading June 2017 Wrap Up

8 Things I’ll Miss About Reading Town

Now that I’ve started winding down from university, and namely living around universities, I’ve been thinking about what I’ll most miss about that atmosphere. Potentially the first in a series. A photo from the main Wantage building across the second quad to the second set of room where we stayed as first years. Walking to … Continue reading 8 Things I’ll Miss About Reading Town

Happy Book Birthday, RULES FOR THIEVES

My critique partner, Alexandra Ott's, debut novel is out today, MG Fantasy RULES FOR THIEVES! Eee, exciting. Look at that glossy cover! (And did I mention I had a hand in choosing the title? 😉 ) Twelve-year-old Alli Rosco is smart, resourceful, and totally incapable of keeping her mouth shut. Some of these traits have … Continue reading Happy Book Birthday, RULES FOR THIEVES

Help Fund Thistle & Thorn’s Production of Dolls at the 2017 Edinborough Fringe Festival!

A Steampunk Opera (The Dolls Of New Albion)

Thistle & Thorn Production

Meanwhile, over in Edinborough, a plucky group of thespians, hunted and running from their lives from the post riot purges, have started a Kickstarter in order to put their version of Dolls Of New Albion up at the 2017 Fringe Festival.

Word is the Soldiers are closing in on them, several cast members narrowly survived a bloody shoot out although not all with their limbs intact, and they’re surviving by eating old tins of beans they found in some old pantry somewhere. Cold baked beans. Ugh. The horror.

But you, YOU can help them tell their tale. They need a mere 2,000 pounds and they’re already a quarter of the way there. A quarter of them may survive, limbs intact and everything. But what, you’re just going to let the others die? Executed by the dreaded military police? You bastard! No, i i know you’ll do the right thing. Every…

Alice’s Night Circus

It may not be a Thursday, but I'm rather working from day to day and so cannot post to a schedule at this time. Yesterday, I had the pleasure of listening to Alice's Night Circus again (I first saw her live in Lincoln two years ago, and then last year as supporting for Steam Powered … Continue reading Alice’s Night Circus
