A Special City Walk

A while ago I told you I took pictures for a secret project.

Today I can tell you what that was all about!
I have a special guest over at my review blog today: Sparky Salamander.
Sparky is the sidekick of Anya in the books Embers & Sparks by Laura Bickle, but in his daily life he helps out Laura with her writing among other things.

Sparky is telling all about one of his adventures and there's also a giveaway. In honor of his visit I decided to do a special post on this blog today. I took my well read copy of Embers into town and took pictures of me and the book at some of the places I would love to show Sparky and Laura if they ever visit Groningen.

First of all I'd show them the Martini Tower of course!

And the Martini Church.

And I'd show Sparky the dragon next to the Martini Tower.

Next I'd take Sparky and Laura to the local book store where they have Dark Oracle, a book that Laura also wrote, but under her pen name Alayna Williams.
(I didn't take out my copy of Embers in the store, in case they would try to put it on the shelves to sell it.)

I know Laura loves to play card & board games. so I would also take them to see the local games store.

The A-Church is a must see building as well.

And finally on our way home for some hot chocolate and home made cake: the New Church.

Don't forget to go run over to the review blog to see Sparky's adventures and to enter the giveaway!

It's a really cool dragon. I had this feeling you and Sparky would like him ;-)

Hammie Hamster said...

Oooh! you showed us something new too! We never knew there was a dragon next to the Martinitoren!!! I'm going to ask G. if we can see that next time we are in Groningen! Thanks :-) !

Sparky loves the dragon and wants to come visit! :-)

I love the dragon, too - super cool!

Laura Bickle said...

Isn't it neat? It's like he was a dragon turned to stone...story wheels churning...

Sullivan McPig said...

@Laura: Sparky is welcome to come visit me anytime! And you as well of course ;-)
