It had been a little while since Deborah made it to the San Francisco Bay Area for a book tour—last time it was in 2014. This time, we got lucky since Book Passage in Corte Madera, just North of San Francisco, invited her for a book signing. To make the day even more exciting, friends from the All Souls Podcast, Chamomile & Clove, the All Souls Discussion Group, and All Souls Con joined the celebration of Time’s Convert. And a celebration it was! The event marked the 2nd week in the New York Times Best Seller List. At about 7pm, Deborah arrived and immediately started to tell us how Time’s Convert came about, the extensive historical research that went into the development of Time’s Convert, her writing process, and even about the books she read about “vampire development.”
We were very fortunate to be invited to a press roundtable at San Diego Comic Con and got to chat with the effervescent cast and producers of A Discovery Of Witches. But before we meet the witches (and producers), here’s a summary of what was announced at San Diego Comic Con on Thursday, July 19th:
• A Discovery Of Witches will premier on September 14 on Sky One in the UK.
• In the US, it will be available on streaming platforms, Sundance Now and Shudder. Later on Instagram, Sundance Now wrote that the series would air in early 2019.
The producers and cast were the same that had previously spoken during the panel in Hall 20: Deborah Harkness, Lachlan MacKinnon, Teresa Palmer, Alex Kingston, Valarie Pettiford, and Owen Teale.
At first, we wanted to write a review about The World Of All Souls, but had to change plans, because how do write a review about a book you want to hug? Well, it would be awkward, so we decided to list our Top 10 favorite finds.
But first thing first. Who’s this book for? This question is easy to answer. If you fit one of these profiles, The World Of All Souls is for you.
Our insatiable wanderlust combined with our love for the All Souls Trilogy has taken us to a truly enchanted city where Gothic, Renaissance, Baroque, and Rococo live side by side in perfect harmony. Welcome to Prague, the city of a hundred spires!
By exploring Diana & Matthew’s Prague, you’ll discover beauty at every turn, especially when you’re committed to walking everywhere looking for doorway signs, sgraffito-decorated buildings, and secret passageways not marked on Google. Those passageways have become an obsession because, let’s face it, “beating Google” can be a lot of fun! Net-net: bring your most comfortable shoes to walk on uneven cobblestones, and a camera (or phone) with extra large storage because you’ll want to take hundreds of pictures.
In part 1, we explore Malá Strana, the neighborhood under Prague Castle.
It’s hard to believe another year has gone by!
“Whenever something like that happens, you can bet there’s a timewalker nearby,” explained Sarah.
There’s definitely a timewalker in our neighborhood since it’s time for the All Souls Holiday Shopping Guide − Third Edition.
Unless you want to go “Phoebe style,” with gifts that are handmade or hand-me-down, we’ve compiled The Tenth Knot’s picks under $28. In our top picks, you’ll find a few options from talented “All Souls artists.”
The All Souls universe has gifted us with the most generous friends, and one of them happens to be our wonderful contributing editor, Wendy MacNeil. Wendy, who attended All Souls Con 2017, has been recruited by the All Souls Con organizers as the “accidental volunteer” to help with a fundraiser, logistics, and even planning the next convention. If you meet Wendy in person, you’d know why you’d want to enlist her help.
In this post, Wendy shares the seven reasons why she enjoyed New Orleans.
I kept this for you.
It was our first indication that you were going to be a great witch. Maybe you’ll need it one day.
Lots of love, Mom
We love Rebecca’s letter to Diana!!
To celebrate, we have a mega-giveaway jointly with All Souls Con, Daemons Domain, and Daemons Discuss.
