I commissioned elasmosaurus at BASC to do this artwork of Mary for the latest chapter of Disregard the Danger.  So awesome! :D




The San Diego Sherlockians invite you to their 2nd Annual Sherlock Beach Party to celebrate the end of summer!

WHERE: Coronado, on the beach behind the Hotel Del. Because the exact site on the beach depends on availability, we can’t give you an exact location at this time. Instead, you’ll have to text me when you get there so I can let you know. If you don’t have my number, send a message and I’ll message you back!

WHEN: Saturday, August 23rd at 11 AM (we’re starting a little early this year, as we know it’s the premiere of Doctor Who Series 8 later in the night, and many of us want to be home early to catch it)

Beach attire recommended, but feel free to wear anything! Heck, come in cosplay if you want! But definitely bring a towel and/or a beach chair.

This year, we’re making it an official potluck! Message or reblog with what you’re bringing… Chips, pizza, dessert, etc.

Feel free to invite your fellow Sherlockians who aren’t part of the group.

And most importantly, please RSVP! We want to know who will be joining us! Either do so by messaging the San Diego Sherlockians Tumblr, or RSVPing to our Facebook event here:

See you there. :)

Just a reminder that the beach party is the day after tomorrow! And we were just challenged to the ALS Ice Bucket Challenge, so it should be a super cool time. ;D

Please RSVP by sending us a message if you plan on attending!

We’ve just been notified that the link to our Facebook event works only if you are a member of the San Diego Sherlockians group, so here’s a link to our group page!

And if you’d rather not join the Facebook group but would still like to RSVP, please send us a message here on Tumblr!


It was great seeing everyone at SDCC and BASC! If you have any photos, feel free to tag #OCFandomeet so we can find each other.

Hope to see everyone soon!

Finally reporting back from the actualbookevent!


 At the Bay Area Sherlock Con we had the chance to “Bring Our Own Discussion” and you know I couldn’t resist the opportunity for book talk with live Sherlockians. Fans have the best taste, am I right? Thanks eternally to @coloredink, destinationtoast, bandersnatchmycummerbund, gaybabysherlock, and breadandpeppermintmochaswithsex (am i missing anyone?) for making my first con a fantastically bookish one!
