Have you all been wondering where Thor is and what he’s been up to? I know I get anxious at the in-between times. Maybe you do to. For those of you just stopping in for the first time, this question might seem a little off the wall. But we have been tracking our favorite Norse god as he has embarked on a trip around the globe, checking in from various stops along the way.
What? The real Thor? Or Chris Hemsworth, you say? Don’t we all wish! No, no. Not in the slightest.
Remember when you were young and you had your favorite doll or action figure? Mine was the 12” Han Solo. That’s right, I admit it. I was a huge geek even then, and I had a big crush on the Star Wars hunk. I still have my Han. We were in luv. All my Barbies ditched Ken and G.I. Joe for him. Today, my little girl, Monkey, has a huge crush on Thor. You see, her mommy is raising her right. 😉 If you ask her about Thor you’ll get a smile much like this one.
Because of her, Thor was chosen as our representative, and our nifty action figure with pump hammer action has taken to the road. He’s made two stops that can easily be viewed on his tour page. Find the link at the top of this page.
Today he’s checking in from his third stop in Alberta, Canada, where he has been enjoying his time with the wonderful author, Sheila Seabrook. Maybe he’s inspired by her talent. Maybe it’s something else, but I hear Thor has also taken up writing. Should I be concerned? Maybe it boils down to having too much fun. I understand a Dear John letter has been drafted. All plans to eventually return home, abandoned. See for yourself:
My dearest Debra,
Oh how I miss you … let me count the ways. I miss your wonderful smile and the bubbling joy of your laughter. To keep reading, click here.
Who knows, maybe Thor will join the ranks as an author. Although, I don’t see him ditching his love for ale and a good brawl for a sit in the chair at the computer, or with pen and paper for very long. He’s more of the physical type, if you get my meaning.
In need of a little pick me up and finding Thor didn’t quite do it for you today? Check out this amazing compilation of 90 inspiring author videos for aspiring authors.

Reminders: It’s never too late to jump on the Thor tour. All you need to do is drop me a line. Thor has his own page now, by which you can track his progress, catch up on older updates, or just check out fun trivia, videos, and pictures that will be added to on a regular basis. Check it out! Find the link at the top of the page. Next update: Deliberately Delicious, coming soon. What will our guy be up to with the vivacious Sally?
Also, this blog will be relocating to a self-hosted site at some point during the month of November. I hope you’ll follow us to the new digs. My fabulous designer, Laird Sapir, and I have some pretty amazing ideas (I think) and I hope you’ll enjoy what we create there.
