I had plans to mention a couple of people on Saturday, but the nature of the SoCS prompt being what it is, my plans don’t always lead to accomplishments, and this was one of those weeks.
I wanted to share some news about two women who recently visited the bar. Teagan Geneviene and Roberta Cheadle.
Teagan launched her new interactive serial story – “The Armadillo Files” – on Saturday. We talked about this serial when Teagan was at the bar a few weeks ago. I know many of you are/were looking forward to it. Well, it’s on the pad, as it were, so get down there and blast off into space with Dilly.
If you remember when Robbie was at the bar, she mentioned “Behind Closed Doors” a new collection of unusual poems. There was much interest, as I recall. That book has been published, it’s available on Amazon, I got my copy, and it’s wonderful! You can read more about it, and hear Robbie read a wonderful poem, here, you can purchase a copy here, and you can follow Robbie on Amazon here.
Robbie mentioned that she used one of Teagan’s lovely book covers for her latest book. Teagan has a wonderful selection of ready-to-use book covers. You can view them here.
The last thing I forgot has to do with cats. I subscribe to The Noun Project which advertises itself as having “Icons and Photos for Everything.” I used this service for icons when I was writing apps for the iPhones we had on our network when I was working. I like it, and the rate is affordable, so I transferred it to a personal subscription. I received an email from them mentioning something about August being National Cat Month. They were featuring over 6,922 cat icons.
I checked into this, and I can’t find any reference to National Cat Month being in August. I did discover that yesterday, August 8th was International Cat Day, and tomorrow, August 10th is National Lazy Day – don’t ask MiMi, MuMu, Crystal or Gibbs why that’s on a list with cat holidays. The icons are black and white. We colored them to use for apps, but in B&W, they work fine for the first three cats in that list – sorry Gibbs…oh, wait, I found one that is kinda grayscale. Below is a collection of the moods-of-MiMi, MuMu, the only one I found that looks like Teagan’s lovely cat, Crystal and Mary’s boss. I also found one that Marian might appreciate, or not, and I can’t mention Chickie without mentioning Tipper, so…
Note: If you want to use Noun Project icons without a subscription, you only have to add an attribution to the image.
