On Saturday, May 11, 2013, at 11am Pacific time, we at SpotON3D are pleased to be hosting the very first event for the Metaverse Cultural Series 2013!   Avacon Inc., who put together the series, is a non-profit organization dedicated to promoting the growth, enhancement, and development of the metaverse and 3D Web spaces, by holding gatherings to promote educational and scientific inquiry into these spaces.

This event, entitled "The Armchair Author Show", will be held at the SpotON3D Theater.  Once you're logged into SpotON3D, you can click the above link to be transported directly to the show.  Or better yet, click the 3DWeb Widget at the top of this blog to log in AND go directly to the theater location!

The "Armchair Author Show" will be hosted by Adele Ward of Ward Wood Publishing ( Adele will be interviewing author Patricia Averbach, whose debut novel Painting Bridges was released recently.

Author Liz Rozenburg says this about Patricia's novel: "Pat Averbach's Painting Bridges is a graceful debut novel of grief and redemption. Part memorial, part love story, part coming-into-one's-own, it is a classic narrative that reaches out to every kind of reader. "

Patricia workshopped her novel in Second Life®, so the 3D Web has played an important part in her success as an author. In November, her debut poetry collection will be published as a prize for winning the International Lumen/ Camden Poetry Competition judged by acclaimed American poet Anne Stevenson.

 Patricia's novel is published by Bottom Dog Press, Inc., as part of their Harmony Series (  You can purchase it directly from here with your PayPal account.  It is also available for sales on®.
