We will not be releasing a new chapter discussion this weekend. Things have been a bit hectic at C&C headquarters (both East and West), and so we are taking a mini-break to catch up. There will be a brand new Book of Life chapter discussion in your podcast feed in two weeks.
Until that time, we have a couple of announcements for this month.
To celebrate the kick of the 2019 A Discovery of Witches Real Time Reading, we will be doing a live tweet and watch party of episode 1 season 1 of A Discovery of Witches on Wednesday, September 18th, at 5:00 PDT /8:00 EDT.
Keep an eye out in September for some giveaways to celebrate our 2-year Anniversary podcasting about the All Souls Universe.
It’s been a while, but we’re back to our chapter-by-chapter discussion of the All Souls Trilogy — and we’re (suddenly, miraculously, unbelievably) ready to discuss Chapters 1-2 of Book of Life! If you’d like to join in the fun, please check out our Reading and Release Schedule and grab your copy of Book of Life — we’ll be here for a while. In the meantime…
If you like what we do, consider following us on Twitter as @chamomilenclove, joining our Facebook group (The Chamomile & Clove Clovers), or supporting us on Patreon! We’re so excited to have you along for the ride!
I am going to give you a peek into how things sometimes happen at C&C headquarters.
Imagine that you’re Jen, minding your own business on the West Coast (C&C West). It’s getting late on the East Coast (C&C East), so you’re settling down for the night. Then, your phone makes its chirpy text message noise.
You pick up your phone, even though you know it’s not a good sign.
CAIT: I HAVE HAD *AN IDEA*
CAIT: It’s FABULOUS and LOADS OF EFFORT and HORRIBLY SPONTANEOUS.
CAIT: What do you think?
CAIT: I’M GOING IN.
JEN: *THUMBS UP*
As you may have guessed, my lovelies, this is one of those occasions. I’ve been scheming for ways to celebrate the premiere of ADOWTV on network television… and then I remembered that the sports ball tournament starts tomorrow. And that one can make A BRACKET. Well, IT IS DONE.
I present to you the inaugural ADOWTV March Madness. Here’s how it will work:
(1) Every day between now and Monday, 8 April 2019, I’ll post a poll on our Facebook page and our Twitter account.
(2) Vote for your favorite of the two scenes listed for that day. The scene with the least votes will be eliminated from the bracket.
(3) You can join in at any time and you don’t have to be a listener to play. Come join the fun and let’s see what shakes out!
(4) We’ll have the final vote and ranking on 8 April 2019, the day after the network TV premiere.
I know you want to see the bracket, so here it is in all of its glory:
You can download your own copy below, but I’ll post updated copies as we go. The first poll will be up in a matter of hours!
Some quick caveats: (1) I know some characters are underrepresented in this bracket, but anything over 24 scenes became LUDICROUS; (2) if your favorite scene isn’t represented, let me know! I’ll make a separate poll for the scenes I overlooked; (3) I’ll count both Twitter and Facebook votes; and (4) this is supposed to be FUN. Invite your friends! Talk to other fans! Enjoy it — I know I will.
In the meantime, join me in thanking Jen for loving me despite my bright ideas.
This week, your community break from #Witchdrawal will take place on SUNDAY, February 24, starting at 8pm EST/5pm PST/1am GMT. Together, we’ll press play on Episode 1×06 of A Discovery of Witches on Sundance Now and Shudder and rescue Diana from Satu and Gerbert. Use the hashtag #ccalchemy to be featured!
If you like what we do, consider finding our podcast via iTunes or Stitcher or maybe shoot us an e-mail at firstname.lastname@example.org. Between now and Season 2, there’s plenty of time to check out our back catalogue and Shadow of Night Real-Time Reading Posts. We can’t wait to play with you!
