We're almost there! This time next week, (Re)Generation Who 4 will be underway! We'll both be working hard at the event, but if you want to say hi to us, you'll be able to catch us somewhere!

Kara will be doing panels and interviews throughout the weekend, including leading the "We Are (Re)Generation Who" opening panel and the "Companions" roundtable interview. You can also catch her interviewing Jason Haigh-Ellery from Big Finish and, in the big room, Peter Capaldi on Saturday!

Ginger will be working the merch table, and she'll have a few of her sweet Twelfth Doctor pins on hand. You can order online now for pick-up at the event if you're going, or for mail-order if you're not.

And we'll both be doing our self-publishing panel Saturday night at 10 pm (unless we can get it moved). So if you'd like to meet us both and are interested in publishing your own works, be sure to meet us there!

CREATORS UPDATE: Shirt Sales Closing and New Anthology!

(Re)Generation Who draws ever closer, friendos! Not long now 'til Ginger and Kara will be descending on (or ascending to?) Baltimore for the con's fourth year! In the meantime, we are not staying idle.

If you are attending this year's con, you have until 11:59 pm Eastern tonight to reserve your con shirts and VIP tiers 2 and up! Both of this year's shirts were designed by Ginger, and all VIP tiers come with some amazing art (also by Ginger!) of the Doctors rockin' out.

Check out our merch and register now!

And if you are a fan of the extended worlds of Doctor Who, you'll be happy to know there's a new City of the Saved anthology out! Stranger Tales of the City explores the "different" and "alien" among the City's inhabitants -- the people who don't quite fit in, and where their stories go.

Kara is among the writers included in this anthology, with her story "The Wandering Child."

Order your copy now!

Thanks as ever for your support, and we'll see you next week!

We're assuming you're about as shocked as we are.

So what have Ginger and Kara been up to behind the scenes?... A lot.

Provided all goes well and she hasn't evaporated in the night (we tend to write these blog posts in advance), Kara is currently turning in her part of the first draft of Seasons of War: Gallifrey (with cover by Ginger!) and her second draft of Black Archive #21: Heaven Sent. Which means some more reading of a very Whovian sort coming your way later this year.

Ginger, meanwhile, is working away on (Re)Gen's program book, along with some cool surprises for attendees! Between us, we're learning how to make frames for Facebook icons and stories. Which means attendees will get to liven up their pics when they're on site! We're super excited about announcing this to everyone.

Also, the clearing out of those two book projects (for now) means a big deal: Kara can get back on Owl's Flower 3! The first draft is nearing the end, and once (Re)Gen is over for the years we can pitch in together and start bringing you sneak peeks of the romantic third book.

For now, thanks as always for your support!

(Re)Gen Prep Continues: Cute Pins and Self-Publishing Panel!

Yikes, it's a month to the con!

That's okay. We're fine. Totally. Not panicking at all.

In fact, Ginger has launched this absolutely adorable 12th Doctor enamel pin. It's already being picked up by fans coming to the event, but you don't have to go to (Re)Gen to get yours!

If you want it shipped to you, head to her Etsy.
If you want to pick it up at con, head to her Storenvy.

Meanwhile, it's been confirmed that we will be running our self-publishing panel from PotterVerse again at (Re)Gen! We don't have a day or time yet, but when the schedule goes live we'll let everyone know.

Haven't registered for (Re)Generation Who yet? Ya might want to get on that! A full weekend pass is $90 (yes, that's it -- no upcharge to get into panels, just pay for your photos and autographs!), and Peter Capaldi will be there! As will Peter Davison, Colin Baker, Michelle Gomez, Rachel Talalay, Robert Shearman, Paul Magrs, and waaaaay too many more to name.

Ginger also designed the con's shirts, and Kara will be running interviews. So you'll be able to see us both there!

A Post-Valentine Update. Because We Love You.

All is not as silent on the Owl's Flower front as it seems. Ginger is working away at her day job while branding the entirety of a con, while Kara runs social media for said con and attempts to finish a couple of books whose deadlines are... flexible at this point.

We have been meeting and chatting about book 3, which is still in progress with a first written draft nearly done. It is, appropriately enough, a Valentine's Day book. It's also the first time you'll see other cultures begin to seep into our work, as we integrate mythologies from around the world into our weird little pantheon.

Who will you see? Well, we don't want to give away too much, but we dip a bit into Kara's own home culture of the Mediterranean, as well as some very interesting Asian spirits. Once the book comes out, we'll see if you can guess early on who they are and why they're there!

In the meantime, (Re)Generation Who is right around the corner, and we're both working away. Ginger's designing amazing merch for the VIP tiers as well as knocking out ads to attempt to stay in line with Facebook's ever-changing standards. And Kara is prepping for interviews while keeping the social media rolling. And it looks like we'll be doing our self-publishing panel again -- so if you missed us at PotterVerse, you'll have another chance!

Stay tuned for more updates!

Owl's Flower Invades ODU Minicon!

If you're in the Hampton Roads area this weekend and have some time to spare, come down to ODU Minicon! This time, Kara won't get the flu and have to bow out the morning of the event!

ODU Minicon is three days of geeky panels and events with an educational bent. It includes karaoke, a cosplay contest, a game tournament, and an anime video room.

Kara will be on hand to do three panels: one on understanding Doctor Who as a non-sci-fi series, one on the history of magical girl anime (which went over well at Anime Mid-Atlantic), and another on how to break into the anime industry.

She'll also be sitting in with Friday Night Fanfiction on (surprise) Friday night.

Kara will not be at the event on Sunday, as she is taking off to Richmond to go see Mazinger Z/Infinity like a total weeb.

It all kicks off tonight at 6 pm. Check out their Facebook page for more info and to RSVP!

How to Throw THE BEST Superb Owl Party!

Want to celebrate on the big night but don't know a damn thing about football? That's okay! We're here to help you throw the perfect Superb Owl party -- Owl's Flower style!

After all, who better to give party tips than a cafe owner?

Here's everything you'll need to celebrate the superbest of owls. (Just... don't tell Dumb Baby the party isn't actually for him.)

1. Snackies

The rule of any party at Owl's Flower or in the Faulkner household is that the only food "theme" is "good." If the food is good, it can be served. If you can make it cute? Even better.

Herne's personal favorite is the shop's specialty honey cookies. And if you want to try them, fortunately there's a recipe in the back of the first book -- which you can download free, by the way!

Don't forget some chips and dip (or salsa/queso if Frank is nosing in -- medium spicy, please), soda, and a coffee and tea bar!

2. Entertainment

Since there's no sports on, you'll need something in the background. Iris has run some commercials on Managlitch City Underground, if you're looking for some sci-fi style listening. If you want an authentic night in like Herne and Iris, though, get on your streaming site of choice and queue up some cooking shows!

3. Guests

If you run with a nature god, you are almost certain to get some interesting visitors. Expect shapeshifters, ghosts, demons, and maybe even an historical figure or two.

Want to keep a tighter rein on the guest list? Consider looking up the Dipsy Toads and Fleet Birds of Transfiguring Adoption's Magical Creatures list! Many are lovely friends who'll help you and your kids have sweet dreams or light up the party. But some are more mischievous, so be careful!

(Additionally, these sweet creatures are a wonderful way for parents of adopted children to bond with their kids over the Harry Potter books -- so party or no party, you might want to invite some over.)

4. Dealing with Uninvited Guests

If you're throwing an awesome party, you're almost certainly going to get gate-crashers... especially considering the company that demigods keep. For a fast lesson in how to keep ghosts off your lawn, look no further than Iris in Book 2, Ghost Fall. She'll help you clear the intruders out before the food gets cold!

We hope you have fun next weekend, whether your night is Super, Superb, or Chill.
