For a long time now, I’ve been wanting to set up an area on the site where we can link to all of YOUR projects. I know a lot of you who read The Dreamer have your own things happening on the web, and I thought it would be super-sweet to find a way to give you room on the site to share it with each other! Unfortunately, unless any of you have seen an existing template for something like that, doing it here would involve a lot of coding and updating for Mike and he just doesn’t have that time.
So I figured the least I could do was a blog post. I’m going to list a few things I know of, but please share your endeavors in the comments section! You Dreamers are really talented, you send things to me all the time, and it’s time you knew about each other!
I’ve read Shadowchild by Caera Thornton, our resident Nathan Hale fanatic. She sent me a copy for my birthday a few years back and I couldn’t put it down. She wrote it when she was only 15 (I think) and has won awards for it!
Joanne Renaud has a beautiful historically-inspired portfolio site, that includes a picture of Bea, Alan and a sneering Betsy Loring at a ball!
Dreamer Issue #4 cover artist Chris Oatley recently started a new podcast to discuss the last season of LOST, called LOST Revelations. It’s a lot of fun!
Sarah Searle was the VERY FIRST person to ever send me Dreamer Fan Art! <3 Now she has her own webcomic, Under the Apple Tree. The comic has a beautiful vintage style I can’t get enough of.
Sarah Vaughn has some amazing regency-era art, crazy fun dress-up doll games, and a couple pieces of hilarious Dreamer fan art on her site.
I can’t forget Michelle Timian, who is currently looking for a publisher for her urban, sci-fi, fantasy novel, The Elevator. Check out her amazing gallery of Elevator Fan Art!
Katie does a lot of historical reenacting, both WWII and as a Hessian from the Revolutionary War. She has a super adorable blog for all things lady-like called Hunny Side Hill.
And did you know that there is a section on FanFiction.net just for The Dreamer?! Check it out here! One of them, “Possibilities” by DaggerQuill is perhaps my favorite Dreamer Fan Fic ever. With the exception of details about Ben’s family, I think of the story as canon. She perfectly captured Ben’s character and motivations. Read it!
I know there are a lot more, and I’m sorry if I missed yours. But please post your websites and projects in the comments section! I’m excited to learn more about you.
