Battle of the Books winners at Rawls-Byrd Elementary School in Williamsburg, Virginia received a special guest for their end-of-the-year celebration! These students whom took on reading challenges throughout the school-year were rewarded with signed copies of Savannah of Williamsburg: Ben Franklin, Freedom & Freedom of the Press, Virginia 1735 and a chat with the author over peppermint-chocolate Carvel's!

Battle of the Books is a volunteer, reading-enrichment program open to fifth- and sixth-graders throughout various private and public schools. Media Specialist, Viky Pedigo, is the Rawls-Byrd Penguins' coach for each year's Battle. After reading dozens of titles, students compete in a Jeopardy-manner, answering question-après-question about said-books. These students vanquished a number of children from some very prestigious private schools in Virginia. Ms. Pedigo has also been a long-time supporter and friend of Ms. Devore and all the Savannah of Williamsburg titles. Each year, Ms. Pedigo invites many local authors to visit and chat with some of her more prolific readers.

Ms. Viky Pedigo is also a rockin' ball o' fun, shan't be seen about town with a chapeau or her lizards, is a rabid devotee of Irish Pub Rock and Classic Celtic tuneage and, most importantly, is Queen Mum to the world-famous Lance Pedigo, Manager of Music Programs for Colonial Williamsburg.

Meet The Darlings

The Darlings of Orange County

The sexy, cashmere beaches of southern California aren't always what they seem. The dirty little secret here is what it takes to survive. Everyone has a trick up their silk sleeve. Liz Lemon meets Parker Posey, Veronica Darling is smart enough to know what it takes and is willing to soil her soul to bring Hollywood to the California Riviera. The Darlings of Orange County is a salacious, hilarious, harrowing romp chock full of eco-terrorism, horse-racing scandals, weed deals and the obligatory lipstick-lesbian affair that inevitably leads to murder. It all climaxes in a white-knuckled, glitzy, celebrity-stacked Laguna Beach Film Premiere that spells success for Veronica Darling and trouble for her friends and family.

Hannah Hart, ghost dame of the Hotel del Coronado

So, here's the low down, all you Joes and Janes ... I'm Hannah Hart, dead girl. Don't fret, it's actually a sweet dish being dead. Having perished in 1934 in a terrifically vicious accessories incident with actress Ida Lupino, I reside where I died: San Diego's gorgeous Hotel del Coronado. It ain't a bad gig at all, really! Great weather, swanky guests (not to mention a few fellow ghosties), amazing amenities, my own private turret overlooking the sea and all the java juice and giggle water I can handle; plus, these bartenders know how to make a Planter's Punch like nobody's business! See, I've been waiting for this Internet thing forever ... now, instead of slamming doors and moving lamps, I get to wag my tongue all I like at

Abyssinia, kids!
