SciFi Blog tour – Tabitha

Experience experiment

Bio

Tabitha Chirrick is an author of all things speculative, geeky, and/or badass. Her most recent release is a YA Space Opera called Overshadowed, which she feels includes an about-right number of explosions. She makes her base in a little-known town so close to San Diego that it’s just much easier to say “San Diego.” She lives in San Diego.

Tell us about your novel, Overshadowed.

Sure thing! Overshadowed is a YA Sci-fi about an orphaned refugee who teams up with a raider princess and a dangerous test subject to take down a group of invading alien shapeshifters called Rokkir. I like to pitch is as Star Wars meets Avatar: The Last Airbender (the kickass TV show, not the movie)

It’s got space pirates, war-time intrigue, explosions, and just a dash of romance. I had a lot of fun writing this one, and I’m currently working on its sequel.

A Different View From The Florentine Bridge

Views and angles

Marie McLean

As I post this, my husband and I are preparing to pack our overnight bags, ready to celebrate our 17th wedding anniversary this weekend. What does that have to do with a book review? Quite a lot as it turns out.

At the core of The Florentine Bridge is the intense relationship between Mia and Luca. An Australian girl and an Italian guy, who fall hopelessly in love with each other in one of the most romantic cities in the world. The novel explores the age-old adage that to love someone is to set them free, and questions whether love really can conquer all. But its themes go deeper than that. How do you learn to focus on the positive when the negative overshadows every aspect of your life? How can you find or regain your creative outlet in order to heal?

Initially I thought that this was going to be a cosy, romantic read…

Write Me A Poem

Posting platform pole

HeartBeatsBlue

Love poems worn out by my cynicism,

Four biographies and an Oscar Wilde.

Éluard and a few dead gods —

All my books

Beaten, thrown to the ground.

For a while, I am done

Revisiting pages I know way too well

After sleepless nights and paper cuts.

My fingerprint-memories are on every page

.

I’d ask you for verses, but you’re out

Under the lights of an unknown realm

Enjoying all the things I’ve taught myself

How to hate

.

After a dream or two, in the morning,

Write me a poem about anything you like

Before I lie and say

I didn’t even miss you tonight

.

Descripción:

Rubrum es un proyecto experimental de reciclaje y reutilización de diferentes tipos de maderas en desuso principalmente skateboards.

Luego que su autor realizara un viaje por latinoamerica y distintas zonas Chile como aprendizaje personal, se encontró en Castro, Chiloé, con su primer acercamiento al trabajo en madera. De regreso en Santiago por encargo de un amigo, fabricó unos lentes de madera con materiales recuperados de skates, dándole otra utilidad al pasatiempo que conoció en su infancia.

Así comienza Rubrum Reciclaje, donde diseña y fabrica aros, juguetes, y maceteros. Su materia prima, la madera de los skates, la obtiene revisando basureros y recolectando viejas patinetas de conocidos.

El proceso de trabajo no es sencillo. Primero se recupera la tabla, luego se limpia, se define en…
