Book-signings, Artwork, and Berries–Oh my!!

Wow. So a few hours ago, I finished participating in a book-signing associated with Trinity Service’s Strawberry Festival. I have been posting about this event for some time, but at last, the big day arrived, and let me just say what a fun and awesome experience!! I met some great people, sold and signed more…

“Giants” Gets Its First Home

Here I am with Holly Midget, proud owner of the first copy of In the Land of Giants. I chose to give her the first copy because she has been such a huge supporter of the project and also is such a wonderful person to work with!! I once worked alongside her as an independent living…

And the Books Keep Coming…

Just like the dwarves in The Hobbit, the books for my signing on May 30th just keep coming. Forget Midas and his gold; I’m swimming in a sea of books. Twenty-five percent of all profits from the signing will go to ALFA, a charity that helps fund Trinity Service’s many great programs like culinary and…

Cover Update: “Larimar: Gem of the Sea”

Wow. Once again I am blown away. I chose artist Tiffany Tutti to do a new cover for me for my short story, Larimar: Gem of the Sea, one of several I am coming out with new editions for, for my upcoming book-signing. I honestly think it will be the most gorgeous cover I’ve ever…

New D.N.A. Character Design: “Hestia”

Oh. My. Goodness. I just received this completed character design from one of my brilliant artists, the lovely Aerelis. The character design is for Hestia, a very emotional fairy who can be filled with fiery passion one moment, ice cold the next–as reflected in her magical powers of fire and ice.
