Clue #1 for the Super Sekrit series

Lately I have been hinting of a big announcement coming up.  What is this announcement, you ask? It is the reveal of the next book in my Super Sekrit series!  The series that I haven't been able to talk about.  The series that was optioned with Universal Pictures before it was even written.

So, do I finally get to reveal the SUPER SEKRIT SERIES today?

Sadly, no.

BUT I do get to tell you when the announcement is!  The Big Reveal of the Super Sekrit series will be October 2nd.  And, to keep it fun and interesting, we want YOU to try to guess what the series will be about.  Basically almost nothing has been revealed about the sekrit series--plot, characters, conflict, anything--but every Tuesday, I will be giving out clues, hints, as to what the new series is about.  There will also be a giveaway at the beginning of the month.  All leading up to October 2nd and the Grand Reveal.

So check back every Teaser Tuesday for the next clue to the Super Sekrit series.  Big things are happening down the road.  Also, since today is Tuesday, you get your very first

Clue #1 for the Super Sekrit series is:



That's all you get today.  Let the comments, guessing, and speculation begin.  If you have any theories, wild or not, I'd love to hear them.  Return next Tuesday for Clue #2, and be sure to save the date for October 2nd.  In the words of Barney Stinson, it will be Legen...

Wait for it....

And then there were two (chickens).

So, as some as you know from twitter, last week a pair of raccoons broke into my chicken pen and killed four of my flock of five.  I was devastated.  These were the girls I raised since they were chicks, and I remember them happily running around my office when they were growing up.

We managed to catch the horrid raccoons, but by that time, the damage had already been done.  I had one chicken left.  And she looked very lonely in the pen all by herself.

But the story has a somewhat happy ending.  This morning, we went to Tractor Supply's animal swap to find my chicken a friend.  And it so happened that someone was selling a whole flock of laying hens.  So after purchasing a chicken, I went home and introduced the girls to each other.  I know chickens are territorial and they have to get used to strangers, so I was prepared for a scuffle or two.  Happily, it didn't take long.  There was one bout where they had to decide who was the dominant chicken, and after that, well, see for yourself.

The new girl on the left is an Orpington hen.  She's not quite as friendly as my red (the red jumps up and takes food from my hand, and also sits on me sometimes) but we'll work on her.  Really, I'm just glad my girl has a friend now.  And that the stupid raccoons are gone.  Maybe in the spring, I'll have a new flock of chicks running around my office.  I'm thinking Bantums this time.
