Woop, woop! Brain 2 Books Cyber Convention Blog Hop – Yay #B2BCyCon2017!


Hi there, Toi here, and welcome to my ToiBox of Words. If you haven’t had a chance to stop by my booth yet, a.k.a my Author Showcase, be sure to do so.

I have some pretty cool stuff to share. I’m inviting everyone who signs up for my email list to receive a FREE short story, Clepher’s Heart (featured in the Of Past and Future anthology). It tells the story of how time travel and advanced technology might test the love of two brothers, but never break it.

Speaking of Anthologies, I’m one of the contributing authors to the B2BCyCon’s first anthology, Book Dreams Vol. 1. Please take a chance on this lovely collection… I heard that some of the authors are giving some freebies with it.

Also, if you haven’t had a chance to check out the Fantasy Scavenger Hunt, check it now. It’s loads of fun.

For this hop, I have quite a sampling to share with you, including insights into my creative thought process, book trailers, and fun games. Feel free to take it all in or simply peruse, picking and choosing what looks good to you. And, just for taking a chance on this hop… I give you my B2BCyCon GRAB BAG! Enjoy.

I hope you enjoyed yourself here. See all of my books (print and digital) in one place by visiting my Amazon Author pages. Please follow one of my pages to help increase my ranking and be notified of my new releases.

A Day in My Life: July ’13-Fashion Films and Contemporary Art

dayNlife

Do you have a MOCA near you?

MOCA- the Virginia Museum of Contemporary Art hosts many wonderful gallery shows throughout the year, but the one I went in July was very special. It was part of special Fashion Films series. For the price of 1 admission, you could view all the current galleries on display as well as participate in the fashion films fun, which meant watching an iconic fashion influencing film, having your movie snacks, a participating in the costume/fashion contest.

On July 18th, the featured film was Pretty In Pink and yes, I dressed up, but don’t have a picture to share.  While of course the costumes, snacks, and film were wonderful, the art show pretty cool too.

Brian Dettmer’s Elemental exhibit was magical. What he did with those books, yeah that’s right BOOKs :D, was amazing. I felt like that exhibit had been featured just for me.

Then there was Stacey Steers’s Night Hunter exhibit. I still don’t understand it all, but it was beautiful. I almost missed the movie wanting to stare at it longer. A combination of video animation, sculpture, poetry, painting, and more, I was taken aback.

It was a truly entertaining and enlightening evening.
