1 Clockwork Owl large This is the thirteenth blog in a series of owl-focused posts to promote Owl Light, my new YA-friendly collection of stories featuring owls. Each post features a mix of owl art, facts, folklore, quotes, and links to owlish sites. If you’re a fan of owls, or know someone whooo is, follow my blog, buy my book, and be kind to these beautiful birds.
Owl art: One of my owl pen and ink sketches from Owl Light. I had great fun creating this “Clockwork Owl” to go with the book’s opening story of the same name.
Owl fact: Unable to move their eyes very much within their sockets, owls instead must move their heads to see. And wow do they! They can turn their head up to 270° (but not all the way around 360°).
Owl saying: I live too near a wood to be scared by an owl.
Owl link: For fans of Snowy Owls, Paul Asimow’s Snowy Owl Page is a must see, and a fact-filled Snowy Owl video.
And, of course, here’s a buy link for Owl Light.
Or buy it from The Owl Pages and help out owls.
