Sad news: Jefferson Market's last day was yesterday.

If the urban fairies are true to form, I expect that they will abandon that location, if they have nor already... considering the fire.
Boo Hoo!

Happy news:
I just saw the rough of a 3 page spread for the Autumn 2007 edition of Faerie Magazine, which features the Fairy Doors of Ann Arbor and "Who's Behind the Fairy Doors?". Whoo Hooo!

I've just started a Cool Links page, because there is not enough stuff on my web-site!! Actually, I am making it, because there realkly are a lot of cool web-sites out and about and I'd like to give some a nod.


Some time ago, I was contacted, by e-mail, about the possibility of a fairy door at the Google offices. Today when I went to investigate... indeed there is a fairy door!
I noticed that the fairy door has vanished from Jefferson Market... for the second, and no doubt, the final time. I did not take a picture of the vacant space... it looks just like it did before the urban fairies arrived. I'll update the tour map soon.
The Meet the Author (and his accomplice) event is getting squared away for Monday, November 12 at Nicola's Books.
Back from the world of Faeries.
Whew! We made it back from the FaerieCon in Philadelphia.
Pretty crazy. We met some of the Big shots of the Faery World... writers and illustrators.
Brian & Wendy Froud, Ari Berk, Michael Hague, Charles Vess, Holly Black...

It'll take me a bit to regroup and put down the details.

The Autumn edition of Faerie Magazine came out.It includes a 3 page article about the urban fairies and fairy doors in Ann Arbor.

Also the November issue of a British magazine, The Doll's House Magazine, is out with a 2 page spread on the urban fairies and fairy doors.

Yes, I know... I know.
I have been working on freelance design so I can pay the bills.

I received another kind e-mail the other day about another fairy door appearance! I have some older once which I need to post too. AND a few sightings that I made of Fairy Finders.

I have to post photos and commentary on the FaerieCon and the article. AND the new books need attending to.

I also just heard that the cover of one of the books, which houses the fairy reading room, at the public library was torn off! I have to take a look at that! Makes me sad... so many children with no parents or guardians.

TWO discoveries! Photos later... once I get them uploaded.
Ok... got One of the two up. The Porch Pumpkin Fairies have returned!
