It doesn’t matter how you spell it, apart from the local collection of sightings by Lady Plummage, Dr Simon Young is presently organising a census of fairy sightings. He has been doing so for the last few years and the census is residing on the Faery Investigation Society website.
So, if you have encountered a faery and would like it to be part of the wider faery sighting community, you can do the surveyhere. All entries are anonymous.
With the success of the Brisbane exhibition, we are looking to have another in our home state of Tasmania. It’ll most likely be in conjunction with the release of book 2 later next year and be bigger. We are looking at special book packages, prints, original artwork by Terry, and much more.
It’ll be a matter of finding the correct venue, which fits the world of Lady Plummage.
It was exciting to hear Rayne Allinson & Mel Bush on ABC Radio, talking about the ‘Faeries of Tasmania’ book. It’s so nice to hear people enjoying the local book and also what is ahead with future publications.
While it’s available, you can listen to the review from ABC Hobart radio here. Move to 2:33:10 in the timeline to hear:
Things have slowed here at Faeries of Tasmania. Lady Plummage has decided to rest for a while. She has been travelling a lot, gathering faery accounts from around Tasmania, which has taken its toll. She will take time out as we collate and organise book 2.
In the meantime here are some snippets from book 2. We know you’d like to see more, but things could change to the structure of the book as new information for both the faeries and Edith S Brown come to light.
With the amazing reception that the first book is receiving, we are well and truly into book 2. New faeries from different locations around Tasmania, plus we are getting much more information about Edith S Brown. We won’t be able to fit everything we know about her, but we’ll certainly be having some exciting evidence.
We are also working with the Port Arthur Historic Site, with a couple of faery sightings that may be in book 2. We’ll have to see how we go for space. It could push out to a book 3 🙂
Terry is also busy translating some of the descriptions to illustrations.
As we welcome in 2023, we also welcome a year for discovery into more faery interviews. Book 1, which was released last year, throughout Tasmania, introduced Lady Plummage and her endevours to the world.
Book 2 has begun. We delve deeper into Edith’s world and what she was really doing here in Tasmania. Although we don’t have all the answers just yet, we are seeing glimmers of a story that stretches half way across the world.
