Thursday Thirteen: Where Ya Been, Susan?

Thirteen things for the return to Thursday Thirteen

Hey, there, Thirteeners. Missed me?

I know my regulars haven’t; they’ve been here with me. But the rest of you?

Man, are you in for a treat.

You see, by popular demand, I’ve been busy doing a few things. Let me tell you about them, Thirteen style.

1. I have collected a bunch of the fiction I like to post here. I took it over to and put it into a book.

2. Lookie!

3. The advantage — other than you don’t have to be online to hang with Trevor — is that I’ve put the outtakes in this volume into chronological order. Many of you asked for this, to have a sense of what happens when.

4. Did I mention this makes Trevor portable? He’s MUCH easier to share, and we all know how much Trevor Wolff likes to share and be shared.

5. But there’s more than just a book.

6. Who here remembers the Musical Hanukkah Celebrations I’ve created over the past two years? (the link will take you to the first one)

7. Well, I’m blurring the line between fiction and reality once again.

8. You can now own a piece of fictional history.

9. Yup, if you click on this link, you’ll be magically transported to my new Merchandise Table over at CafePress.

10. There will be more to choose from soon.

11. But for now, there’s a book. And one shirt. In two colors.

12. And darn it, but I forgot the second-best news: at least some of the profits from the book and shirts will go to the Mr. Holland’s Opus Foundation, which is the charity named in this year’s fictional Musical Hanukkah Celebration.

13. You’ve asked for more Trevor for years. I’m glad to be able to oblige. And best of all, we’ll be able to help some kids start realizing the dream of making music.

Wha? Huh? You mean you haven’t been hanging out here regularly and don’t know who ShapeShifter is?Click on the link and fix that; you’ll be taken to a bio page of the band. From there, you can click on the names of other characters who populate my fiction and/or this blog and explore my world. Come on. You know you can’t resist.

Get the Thursday Thirteen code here!

The purpose of the meme is to get to know everyone who participates a little bit better every Thursday. Visiting fellow Thirteeners is encouraged!
