Site Updates

I am currently working on changing and updating this website to better suit my needs as a graduate student. There are a few changes you may wish to be aware of as I do so.

As of today, the blog/website for my project The TECH Project will no longer be online. I will transition information about the book and the project here to this site over time, but it won’t be immediately available.

Meanwhile, the blog for Rathalla Review will launch next week. The blog, written primarily by the managing editor and associate managing editor of the magazine, will feature our weekly featured podcast along with the monthly podcast produced by the Review. I will occasionally write updates; however, my role will primarily be that of a moderator.

Finally – and most exciting, at least for me – you can now reach my blog at FelizaCasano.com. Wow –  a fast and easy way to get to my website!

If you have any further questions or remarks, feel free to leave a comment below. I love to hear your thoughts.

Toledo area: Local Authors Fair

If you’re in the Toledo area – and will be over the weekend of April 14 – consider checking out the local author fair at the Wood County Public Library on April 14. Wood County Public Library is located at 251 N. Main Street in Bowling Green, Ohio.

The event, officially called the Local Writers Fair, will include a panel discussion about book publishing, and after the discussion, local authors will be featured in a small book fair from 2 p.m. to 4 p.m.

…and I’ll be one of them!  I’ll be at one of the tables, selling hardcover copies of my novel The TECH Project (2010), published through Glass Tower Press.  If you don’t have a copy, do consider stopping by to check out copies or talk to me about the book.  I haven’t done a “real” event yet, so I’m really excited about it!

I originally learned about the event through Jean Geist in the Northwest Ohio Writers Forum.  Jean will also be at the fair, so you should stop by to visit her as well!

You can learn more about the Wood County Public Library on its website, where you can also find information about the upcoming Local Writers Fair.

End of July: Current Projects & Progress

I’ve got quite a few projects going on as we head into August, and some that you may want to keep an eye on.

  • Please Be Mine: A new 4-episode miniseries for UTTV that will be filmed this fall at the University of  Toledo.  Remember West Bancroft Side Story?  PBM is a new romantic comedy (also called a rom-com) that serves as something of a sequel to WBSS.  They’re a bit different in style – no singing and dancing in PBM – but you may be interested in the show, which is loosely based on Pygmalion/My Fair Lady.
  • The Rules: The Rules is still a bit mysterious for all of you – but there are a few things I can say.  The Rules, a stage musical, is a multi-person collaboration and will theoretically be performed for the first time next year.  We are currently working on Act 2.
  • The Final Experiment: The sequel to young adult action/adventure novel The TECH Project is currently undergoing editing.  Hopefully, it will be released next fall.  Meanwhile, those interested can contact thetechproject [at] gmail [dot] com to find out how to order a copy.
