Thanks for hosting me, Catriona!

Can't wait to read this, Lori!

When we bought our Kentucky farm, ten years ago, we could easily see the Milky Way on clear nights. Now, not so much, despite the location in a very rural county. Light pollution is a scourge.

We were in the Blue Mountains in New South Wales in Australia, on a super clear night, and the number of stars visible blew us away. It makes me very sad for today's children that they may never see the constellations the way we did as kids.

I would LOVE to see that. LOVE! And what a brilliant idea.

We always try to watch the Perseids in August, but even though we live in the suburbs-ish, the sky is often still too light.

But I will be delighted, in the meantime, to read your book. Hurray!

Lori, the book sounds like something I need to read.

A couple I know bought a house at the top of rolling hills in northern CT. The first time I visited was during the daytime and I found the view to be awesome. I said "the night time view must be spectacular." They laughed and said that the first night they were there, they couldn't wait until dark to check out the sky. And they found out that they have a great view of the lights at Bradley International Airport!

Great article, Lori! I love your ideas for your books, and this one is another winner. I'm scheduled (on my reading schedule) to read your book next in my Aug. 7th new books, should be starting it tomorrow. I know I'm going to love it. Dark sky parks and communities are definitely new to me, and I can't wait to read more about them!


Lovely to have you, Lori! I'm lucky enough to be able to see the Milky Way here, but it's not as dark as the first country place I ever lived. We went out the first (cloudy) night and couldn't see the car. So we decided to go back for a torch. Turned round and couldn't see the house.

A perfect place to set a dark story. Can't wait to read this one. I love the idea of a dark sky park, which I've never heard of, but now want to visit.

Thanks, everyone! I live in Chicago and you can barely see anything here. I think... Venus? And maybe one star. I used to live out in the country in Indiana, though. I miss the sky.
