My name is Casey Blair, and I write speculative fiction novels. I’m prone to embarking on adventures, and TEA PRINCESS CHRONICLES is my latest! I fled the excessive sunlight in California years ago to graduate from Vassar in New York; since then I’ve lived for a couple years in the rice fields of Japan, attended the SFF residential workshop Viable Paradise, and relocated to the Pacific Northwest.
Although TEA PRINCESS CHRONICLES features a Great Deal of tea, it must be said I’m not a tea expert, only an ardent enthusiast. I’m even more enthusiastic about fantasy stories, especially when they’re fun and full of hope. But when not writing and drinking inordinate amounts of tea, I’m most likely to be found dancing, baking, hiking, or trapped by a cat.
You can find out more about me and my work on my author website. If you have questions or comments about the serial, I’d love to hear from you: you can reach me at tea.princess.chronicles [at] gmail [dot] com. The Tea Princess Twitter account, @teamagicserial, will mainly be for blog updates, but you can also follow my personal Twitter account @CaseyLBlair.
If you’re interested in supporting my work, you have my utmost thanks! At the end of each post, you will see a link to my Ko-Fi: this is like a tip jar where you can “buy me coffee” (except it will, of course, be tea). If you like my work, I would be delighted if you’d consider supporting me there!
I also have a Patreon, and I’ll post that link on each post as well. For those unfamiliar, Patreon is in the model of old-school patronage with newfangled technology, where if you like my work and want to support it you can choose to give me a certain dollar amount each month. While I’m committed to making sure the serial itself will always be free, any support here helps enable me to keep writing seriously long-term, and I would be grateful for any contributions you’re able to make. The Patreon also includes goals for writing pieces you can vote on, like choosing monstrous ingredients I then have to write into tea shop interludes or voting on bonus segments, and you can check out the details here.
