Daemons Discuss: Podcast - Take 7! | All Souls Trilogy Holiday Celebrations, Our Plans for 2017, Goodbye 2016

Take 7 - The One With the Happy Holidays

Description: The title says it all!  Happy Holidays to everyone in the All Souls family!  In this episode we discuss holiday celebrations within the trilogy, our resolutions, our tentative plans for 2017, and our wish to put 2016 to rest (no matter how much it wants to kick and scream!)  Happy New Year, everyone!  See you in 2017!

SPOILER ALERT! We (The Daemons) approach this podcast with an assumption that the listener has read The All Souls Trilogy, including A Discovery of Witches, Shadow of Night, and The Book of Life.  If you haven't, and you don't mind, we certainly don't mind!  :)  Let's do this.


1. Show notes:

Happy Holidays, indeed! 😜
For newcomers to the series:
- We'll start with the basics: The books in discussion are A Discovery of Witches, Shadow of Night and The Book of Life.  Together they make The All Souls Trilogy by Deborah Harkness. 
- Our Daemon Guides to the All Souls Trilogy are available for download: ADOW, SON, TBOL
- If you'd like a ready-reference from the author herself, be sure to download the All Souls Real-Time Reading companion (free e-book at online booksellers via Penguin and Headline books).
- Deborah Harkness usually conducts a real-time reading on her Facebook Page (starting in September), and shares her posts across social media.  Check out her website for all of her social media links, and of course all that she has to offer her readers!
- To see what's available on the web as far as the All Souls universe fandom, check our links page.

In this episode: 
 * Ugh, sorry . . . the audio sucked the big one in this episode, just like the previous one.  Like last time, we edited it to be bearable.  The next episode won't be like this because we found and fixed the problem (third party software was acting up! Grrr!).  😋  Thanks so much for your patience and choosing to listen anyway!

* Our episode titles are a loving tribute to the show "Friends" just 'cause we love Friends and - let's face it - it's easier! Here's how one of the show creators explains their reasoning:
Jeff Greenstein: "When Marta & David & Jeff & I did 'Dream On', we used to spend a lot of time thinking about titles, because they were on-screen at the top of each episode. On "Friends", we decided that was a waste of time. We figured, why not name each episode after the thing that people will ostensibly be talking about around the water-cooler the next day?"
