Reposted from the Omni Ocademy (our sponsor's) site:

We've moved the base of our operations to Patreon. What does that mean? It means you can have access to all sorts of freebies, discounts, early bird opportunities and oh so much more.

If you're already a patron, take a gander at some of the new additions to the benefits available ...
There are some goodun's!

Tearoom Treasure Hunt info to be posted on the Tea Travellers website and Facebook page tout de suite!

The Omni Tales series of coming-of-age fantasy novellas launched on March 21, 2020, but no one knew. Why? The world was busy going into lockdown. Additional installments of the series continue to go up on Amazon, but again no one knows. We mean to change that, and we mean to do it the best way we know how ... with afternoon tea!

Join Ocademy chronicler JSD Johnston for a series of mini book celebrations over tea, each one with its own theme, visiting tearooms hither and yon ... eventually out of state as part of weekend events. Each event will include a drawing for a free spot!

By November, the program will get into the groove with a tea each month. Until then, we'll offer events bi-weekly. This will give us the opportunity to support tearooms while they scramble to keep afloat. It will also give readers and guests a chance to get up to speed on the books. We'll pick a different spot for each get-together, so guests will get to try new places.

While books are the basis of these events, they won't consume our outings. We'll have plenty of time for chit chat about other topics. Seating will be limited to 12, and until further notice, we ask that you wear a mask as well as follow all state and venue guidelines.

As always, we encourage themed attire!

That's about it for now, friends. Our focus is on saving tearooms from closure at present. To that end, expect tea to be attached to nearly all we do & offer in the coming months. For now, HUGS! ~Joy
