I’m pleased to announce our first official interview here at Fictional Fox! If you’ll look up at the menu bar, hopefully you’ll notice the new section entitled Bookpreneur. This section will not only have updates on my own entrepreneur adventures and DIY tips, but it is where I will be posting interviews with authors, bloggers, designers, and all the amazing people in the book world.
And an interview with Alexis Lampley is a fantastic way to kick this off!
Alexis is the author of The Onyx Vial, book one of the Shadow of the Nine series. She is also the creator of the recently launched bookish typography and art subscription service, Nerdy Post. I first discovered Alexis and her work via her Instagram account (@dropandgivemenerdy), and I’ve basically been a fan ever since. I’m so grateful she took the time to answer a few questions, despite being not only a bookpreneur but a mom as well. Needless to say, she is a busy woman!

I know vendoring isn’t the correct word, but for the sake of this title it is.
You may or may not have noticed that I have been missing this week. If you have, I’m flattered! If you haven’t, well I didn’t expect you to any way. The reason for my absence though was that I was a vendor on Friday for a local Star Wars event. You may have seen my Etsy shop. If you’re not sure what I’m talking about, click here or on the Store in the menu on the right side. When the opportunity to become vendors came, we decided to give it a go and see what happened. Since it was our first time, we were exceptionally busy this week getting everything ready. Continue reading “Our Heroine’s First Attempt at Vendoring: A Guide for First Time Vendors”
I won’t be posting today. Why? Because I’m at a con meeting the great Jason Isaacs, aka Captain Hook, aka Lucius Malfoy.
Stay tuned! I’ll tell you all about it on Monday!
An update on the shop: I’ve reached a slight hitch, which is normal for all start-ups right?! It’s no big deal. I’m just waiting for some paperwork to be approved. In the meantime, I will keep designing so that more fandoms and geekishness will be represented when everything is sorted out! If the paperwork just happens to not get approved, we have several other options. Fear not! There will be a store! And it will be awesome! I’ve already received some samples of my designs and they look amazing! Continue reading “Psst…Guess Where I Am?”
It’s an exciting time and I have an announcement to make! I will be launching a store for Geeking Goddess where you can purchase cool bookish and pop culture designs. This is a huge deal for me and I’m stoked! I’ve been hard at work designing, finding vendors, and setting up shop. There will be mugs, posters, throw pillows, and shirts to start off.
Here are some sneak peaks for your enjoyment! Continue reading “Launching: Sneak Peeks”
I didn’t write yesterday, but that’s okay because instead I get the opportunity to write on International Women’s Day! And I thought, why not celebrate? So without further ado, here are some of the most awesome, bad-a, butt-kicking, powerful females in renowned literature, film, tv, and music! In my humble opinion and in no particular order: Continue reading “Top 20 Pop Culture Females”
We had the privilege of seeing Disney on Ice’s Frozen Wednesday night. I must say it was pretty spectacular. I expected no less given the popularity of Frozen. I doubt Disney spared any expense. And wow, it was definitely the best of their ice shows. The snow falling effect was amazing in conjunction with the use of white fireworks to represent Elsa’s powers. Kind of ironic to use fire as ice, but we can overlook that. Kristoff had a wonderful solo performance, which is more than they gave poor Jonathan Groff in the film. “Let It Go” was obviously fantastically done. The costumes were gorgeous. But honestly, the best part may have been the hundreds of little girls dressed up, singing at the top of their lungs, and screaming with delight: “ELSA!!!!!” It made me excited to have a daughter of my own someday with any luck.

Who watched the Oscars?! I did, I did! Of all the nerdy things I did this weekend, watching the Oscars is the most noteworthy among the general public. It was an interesting night, full of ups and downs, and some big wins, and some disappointments. Continue reading “Oscars & Artichokes”
After our experience with the terrible butterbeer at the Yule Ball, we’ve been craving some of it’s deliciousness every since! After being badgered day after day to make some, I finally gave in this weekend and whipped up a batch from my super awesome recipe, which I’m about to share with you.

Valentine’s Day gets a lot of flack. True, I hate the commercialization of it. And the ignorant, romantic teenage version of myself thought it was stupid. Why do we need a day to celebrate love? Shouldn’t we celebrate love all the time? Yes, teenage Bailey, we should. But now that I’m an adult with a child who takes a fair bit of our time and money, I’ve realized that Valentine’s Day is just a wonderful excuse to spend some money for gifts and have some quality time alone as a couple.
