Happy New Year to my Lovely Readers and Friends!

Image
To commemorate the passing of 2015 and the arrival of 2016, here is a song an old Irish traditional that was typically sung at New Years Eve way back in the day (this version sung by the lovely Loreena McKennitt). It is also one of the songs I will be performing at Chuck Owston​'s Medieval Twelfth Night on January 6 (Twelfth Night). I will be doing my 2015 reflection here within the next day or two. Til then, Happy New Year all. :) ***** For first access to giveaways and other content not seen by the rest of the world,  sign up for the free Messages from the Labyrinth Newsletter!

#LookingBackat2015 Bloghop: Reading Angela B. Chrysler's Dolor and Shadow

Image
UPDATE (12/31/25): Angela B. Chrysler's website is down due to maintenance. She is hosting the Looking Back at 2015 Blog Hop at the following Facebook Page:   https://www.facebook.com/ events/941960112546622/ Greetings! For my share of the #Lookingbackat2015 Blog hop, I bring you the final episode of The Underworld TV. Yes, The Underworld TV is coming to an end, simply because it has run its course and it's time to move on and make changes. However, I will be announcing a new webseries and podcast after the new year, one that will allow me to encompass all my interests (or at least most of them). So stay tune for that announcement after the turn of 2016! Now without further ado, in this final episode, I am reading another excerpt from the lovely Angela B. Chrysler's epic dark fantasy novel, Dolor and Shadow . As I said before, it seems like an excellent read, so definitely check it out. :) Check out more of Angela B. Chrysler and her work at http://angela

Greetings! I hope everyone is close to being done with all their shopping for the holidays! And I bring you Day 7 of the #festivespiritbloghop. One of the authors on this blog hop is Angela B. Chrysler. Yesterday, I did a reading of an excerpt from her dark fantasy book, Dolor and Shadow. In return she also did a reading from Descent (The Birthrite Series, #1). I think she did a great job and it is always interesting to hear your words spoken by someone else. She and I will be doing another reading swap for a Looking Back at 2015 bloghop, but for now here is Angela's first reading of Descent:   And check out Angela's interview with me, my review of 2015: http://www.angelabchrysler.com/tiffany-apan/ http://francishpowellauthor. weebly.com/festive-spirit- blog-hop.html a Rafflecopter giveaway ***** For first access to giveaways and other content not seen by the rest of the world, sign up for the free Messages from the La

Hi everyone, Welcome to Day 5 of the #halloweenbloghop. Today I give you two more excerpts from Descent (The Birthrite Series, #1). At the bottom is not only the link to the other authors involved in this blog hop, but also a rafflecopter giveaway of a signed copy of Descent and a mystery gift. :) Enjoy! PART 2: Nicolae’s Escape Wallachia Summer of 1844 CHAPTER 1 O n their first night in the wilderness, Nicolae and Sebastian hiked without sleep and with little rest. A near twenty-four hours later, the younger one was beyond exhausted, and even Nicolae could no longer deny or suppress his own fatigue. Relief filled Sebastian as his brother suggested stopping at a discrete cluster of brush for the remainder of the night. The boy gratefully accepted the canteen of water and small piece of bread offered to him. It was then Sebastian decided to prod his brother for answers. He started by thanking Nicolae again for the drink, food and rest, to which

Festive Spirit Blog Hop, Day 4: Christmas Shopping in the 19th Century and at an Alpaca Farm

Greetings, Here is Day 4 of the #festivespiritbloghop. First, here is an interview that author Francis Powell (who is also part of this blog hop) conducted with me. Check it out at the following link: https://francishpowellwriter. wordpress.com/2015/12/19/ tiffany-apans-2015/ Now, I want to share with you all a couple places I did some of my Christmas shopping at this year. First, we went to Old Economy Village' s Christmas at the Village. Sort of like what we do for the 18th century at the Depreciation Lands Museum, Old Economy Village brings history of the 19th century to life. Their event, Christmas at the Village is an evening event that allows you to walk their cobblestone streets by candlelight while shopping for handmade gifts from some really cool vendors. Definitely looks like something straight out of a Charles Dickens novel. :) Among the very awesome vendors I bought from that night, I met the Burns family, owners of an alpaca farm. They also sell y
