What Was That Book I Saw On The Portland Bike Ride on June 8, 2013?

Did you see that great book cover riding by on the recent Portland Bike Ride on June 8th, 2013?

It was Just A Couple Of Chickens, by Corinne Tippett!

The book cover was worn by Andrew Hunt, who is a main character in the book, and who is my husband, and who was riding the "E" bike of the Love Bikes on the stunning night bike ride through the streets of downtown Portland.

Andrew was wearing the book cover, and - at the request of Portland Police - a helmet and shoes... and not much else.

Because it was the World Naked Bike Ride, Portland 2013!

The Love Bikes are an art project originally prepared by an inspired group of bike lovers for Burning Man 2012, but also riding Portland's Last Thursdays on Alberta as often as possible.

Andrew reports that the 2013 Portland ride could have been called Knock Your Socks Off amazing except that nobody was wearing socks.
Or shirts.
Or much at all.




There's A New Aviation Biography In Town!



I'm delighted to announce that my long-in-the-making aviation pioneering biography of Colonel C. J. Tippett is now available on Amazon.com!

"When No One Else Would Fly" is a riveting story of a man's life during the Great Depression, WWII, and throughout a time of aviation history that continues to fascinate us.

The biography is in Tip's own words, wrapped in vivid historical research.

It's a great read - complete with black marlin fishing stories!

Just A Couple Of Chickens is available in E-Book format!


Now available in both Kindle and EPUB formats, Just A Couple Of Chickens is now an ebook!

The Kindle version is available at the Kindle Store on Amazon.com, and the ePUB version is listed at Smashwords - and will soon be available on Barnes and Noble and the Apple iBookstore.

While it has always been my vision to have my book in my hands, and in the hands of my cherished readers, as a real book... I plunged in and swam my way upstream in the tech flood that is e-books.

I'm starting to dig e-books, but last night my battery died and I really was bent out of shape. I love real books. I love the paper and the covers and their presence. I love librarys and bookstores and stacks and stacks of books.

I do love the e-reader devices. They are so swish and cool. I am amazed that I can change the font, size, margins, background color, and screen brightness. But I need to remember to plug in my darn book. It's a new world and it doesn't work well when I misplace my charger.

Kindle!
ePub!

Just A Couple Of Chickens in just a couple of formats.

A New Project For A New Year

I started blogging at The Free Rooster on February 16th, 2009 and now it is time to bring these roosters some different freedoms for 2013.

I'm in the process of pulling these roosterliscious posts into a blook (a blog that becomes a book) to preserve all the handy information inside - as well as the stunning and compelling photos.

I'm looking forward to presenting new projects at www.TheFreeRooster.com and taking my writing, website-ing, egg and feather business, and marketing projects to new heights.

Come follow me at www.TheWestchesterPress.com, where I am blogging about How To Self Publish A Book
and
Just A Couple Of Chickens
and
When No-One Else Would Fly (the biography of Col. C. J. Tippett)

and to www.TheFeatheredEgg.com, where I am blogging about egg art and what to do with blown eggshells for crafts

and to www.NaturalFeathers.com, where I am blogging about feathers and feather art, the feathers of www.TheFeatheredEgg.com.

Keep blogging, my fellow-bloggers!  I love reading your posts... and together we are creating an incredible resource of information, art, and culture.

Blogs rule.
