At last, the finale!

Hi folks!

The 4th book in “The Tales of Christian Tompta” series is out! Christian finally treks the last leg of his journey, with Papa. It’s easier as a young gnome to let Papa keep making all the decisions, but what can a gnomeling do when circumstances dictate he must take control? Join Christian on more exciting adventures and see if he finally gets his just reward! Available now on Amazon: https://tinyurl.com/y7xpwgsf

Also, check under “News & Schedule” if you’d like to come see me to get your books signed. I have several events planned in November. Hope to see you!

Gnomeling Treks the Midnight Forest(1)

Upcoming Event!

Hello! Saturday, September 29th, I’ll be sponsoring a conical-making craft project at Bill Yeck park in Centerville from 1-3pm. I won’t have books, this is just for fun at the Gnome & Fairy Festival. Here are my first attempts: IMG_5829

I’ve also designed some stickers for the hats. If you follow me on Facebook or Instagram, the designs have been posted on both platforms. I hope you can join me (if we don’t get rained out again)!

Tomorrow’s the big day! I’ll be reading “Meet Christian Tompta” at 11am, and bringing coloring pages and bookmarks to design for the kiddos. Nothing better than reading and shopping for books on a rainy weekend, so come on out. Check out Murphy’s if you haven’t been there yet, and if you haven’t seen the interview I did with Greg Murphy, I’m sharing the Facebook link here again: https://www.facebook.com/murphysusedbooks/videos/238507343421427/

 

Releasing a Book

 

youtube-banner-art.jpg

Each book is like a baby,

created, born, and attended

through rewrites, edits, and proofs.

Baby grows into childhood;

every new version improving,

then adding input from outsiders.

Childhood turns into adulthood…

I putz with the manuscript

until it’s time to let it fly,

even if I’m not ready.
