New Things Coming...Magic is in the Air!

Ahhhh…this is the season, the time of year when summer break is coming to a close and the smell of freshly sharpened pencils fills the air as students begin to prepare to return to school. Things are no different for the Destineers as they prepare to return to Greenbrier Academy. The professors are planning their lessons which they will, of course, be posting in the Cybrarie, and on the Destineers blog. Things have been pretty quiet over on that blog – the gang has been busy having adventures, following quests and keeping the Netherscape safe from the tyranny of Deimos and the Clan of Ares sen Feear, but a new school year is coming.

I hope you will join us as we learn more about the fantasy realms with classes like Dragon Training and Mythical Beings. The schedule planned now is for classes to post Tuesdays and Thursdays to both the blog and the Cybrarie . Right now, the professors are busy supplying their classrooms and giving the blog a facelift to have a more magical feel, the link is live now if you want a sneak peek. Hope we’ll be seeing you there!

In the meantime, how about a little game to spice things up? Christy Condoleo is launching her new book tomorrow (Friday, August 7) with a scavenger hunt! Really - how cool is that? You visit her site which will lead you to another author's site to hunt for an answer to answer a question. I believe there are seven sites involved. You get to visit some great author sites, learn a little about them (and I hear the Destineers will be on one of the stops!), and have some fun. Submit your answers to Christie for a chance to win her new book! Sounds like a lot of fun - I know I'll be making the tour!

Wow, a blog scavenger hunt, what a great idea. You can bet I’m gonna steal that one. So, I better click on over there now to just recon, and then Friday for sure, to see how it’s done. Thanks, Nancy.

Best Regards, Galen

Hw cool is that ..... an interactive launch party. I can see how this would be a lot of fun for those attending. Kind of like a whodunit murder using the audience.

Scavenger hunts are fun and a great advertising idea as well. Nice post!
