It’s that time of year, folks…Christmas is almost upon us. Naturally everyone is offering sales and discounts, and my Etsy shop, Icy Handmade is no different. I’m currently offering 10% off everything until 12 December – simply add the code XMAS10 during checkout to receive your discount. Don’t forget I have a couple of pieces related to The Necromancer’s Apprentice in the ‘merchandise’ section.
However this is very much a fundraising endeavour for me. As most of you know, I’m working on a PhD thesis in Film Studies, with heavy emphasis on the Gothic. The Gothic has enjoyed a slight revival of interest of late, possibly due to the Terror and Wonder exhibition at the British Library, and my supervisor wants to me present a paper at the International Gothic Association conference in July 2015. I’d love to go, but it’s in Vancouver! It’ll cost me a pretty penny, but I would love to go, and I don’t doubt that such a stimulating environment will also help with my fiction, as well as my academic work. So all proceeds from Icy Handmade will go towards my intended Vancouver trip!
