Shorah, fellow refugees.   I am still working out the technical details for inworld publication, but my first three offerings are available now at #28 Eder Gira.

MY FIRST URU ALPHABET BOOK
MY FIRST BOOK OF D’NI NUMBERS
MY  RELTO BOOKSHELF

The  books run on  repeated loops, so a static plain cover version is aviailable for display. I have added a book of the URU calendar sparks.  So that makes four books to add to your colllection of URU memorabilia. Book covers are separate and free.  The animated content is a separate prim and is L$75 per book.  Future titles will include age guidebooks, artistic landscapes and views of D’ni “Before the Fall.”

There are a lot of hunts around the Easter holidays geared towards kids or kid friendly which exclude a lot of our stores from participating. This hunt will NOT be for kids.

The Irontail Egg Hunt will run from April 1st-30th, reigning in the holiday season in a slightly different way. This hunt is for the warped & the sexy. Adult shops are encouraged to apply! We could all use a little targeted traffic. This is not going to be a kid friendly hunt, but a hunt for Adults and Adult items, Nekos,Goth,Vampires, Weapons etc.. and just those that enjoy some spice in their lives! Deadline for applications is Feb. 23rd and I am capping the hunt at 150 stores.
