St. Emma of Austria - Hemma, also called Emma of Gurk, was born Countess of Zeltschach to a noble family called Peilenstein in present-day Pilštanj, Slovenia. They were related to the Liutpoldings of Bavaria and thus to Emperor Henry II. She was brought up at the Imperial court in Bamberg by the Empress Saint Cunigunde. She married Count Wilhelm of Friesach and of the Sanngau, by whom she had two sons, Hartwig and Wilhelm. Both of her sons and her husband were murdered, the latest of them probably in 1036. Hemma became wealthy through inheritance upon the death of her husband and sons.
Countess Hemma used her great wealth for the benefit of the poor and was already venerated as a saint during her lifetime. In addition, she founded ten churches throughout present-day Carinthia, Austria. In 1043 she founded the Benedictine double monastery of Gurk Abbey, where she withdrew during the last years of her life.
After her death, Gurk Abbey was dissolved by the Archbishop of Salzburg, Gebhard, who instead used the funds to set up the Diocese of Gurk-Klagenfurt in 1072. Admont Abbey, another Benedictine foundation in Austria, was founded in 1074 by the same Gebhard, and also owes its existence to Hemma's wealth.
Since 1174 Hemma has been buried in the crypt of Gurk Cathedral, of which she is accounted the founder. She was beatified on 21 November 1287 and canonised on 5 January 1938 by Pope Pius XI. Her feast day is 27 June.
Hemma is the patron saint of the Diocese of Gurk-Klagenfurt as well as of the Austrian state of Carinthia, and her intercession is sought for childbirth and diseases of the eye.

Emma Meston is the owner of Icone Paris. From a very young age, Emma, whose father sold antics, was fascinated by ancient extremely refined objects. She immersed herself in different cultures and traditions through countless trips in the world. Fascinated by women’s ornaments and beauty, she decided to make a living out of her lifelong passion. She launched her first brand Almaya Marceau, revealing to the public what she has imagined for years: baroque and sensual jewelry made with metal lace. She is the creator of this very special know-how which became quickly renowned in the luxury industry.
In 2003, she developed jewels for Christian Lacroix's haute couture fashion shows. She also created limited edition lines of jewelry for Caron. Nike placed a special order and jewelry shoes were exposed in the VO gallery for the Parisian retro-basket event. In 2006 Chivas asked her to customize their vintage bottle. Her work was exhibited for several years in the best Palaces of Paris such as the Ritz, the Crillon and the George V four Seasons hotels. Her favorite piece, her icone, is a tiara-crown representing French craftsmanship. It was exposed in the fashion week in Milan and appeared twice at the Cannes Film Festival.
Two years after its creation, she was present in more than fourty prestigious places around the world. She chose however to return to a more personal way to meet clients and be in tune with their wishes especially for women preparing their wedding. Through Ikone Paris Emma's ambition today is to reveal the best of and sublimate women. She also works closely with personnal shoppers, and is still referenced and suggested in the nicest palaces for the quality of her service.

What’s Blogging Got To Do With It? I'm Jennifer Perry, entertainment publicist and owner of Lone Wolf Communications, LLC. Every week I share all sorts of ways in which authors can promote their books and themselves.
The author’s platform helps them bond with their audience and build a relationship. Blogging is a strong way to do this for many reasons. Your readers enjoy feeling a connection with you and leaving comments for you. They also like knowing any updates on your publishing dates, television or radio appearances and live events where they can see you.
If you are identified strongly with a particular genre of literature the opportunity to connect on a grand scale with fans and other writers is out of this world.
It is a pleasure to have two special guests on this show. A woman who is a writer, editor, publisher, reader, and – yes, there’s more – blogger of The Horrifically Horrifying Horror Blog. Emma Audsley is also a reviewer for The British Fantasy Society.
Emma's colleague Justin Steele, writer and editor of The Arkham Digest, has frighteningly useful tips on blogging for authors. Justin also had this to share with listeners. "Thank you very much for listening! If you have a penchant for the dark, the unexplained, and the numinous, I invite you to join me over on my blog, The Arkham Digest, and help me explore the best that weird fiction has to offer."
This will be a great show, though I’m wondering if I should have some spooky sounds, screams, groans, or a bit of Bach’s toccata and fugue in Dm to help Emma feel at home.
Special Guest: Emma Bridger
