Wishing all of our friends and fans a truly blessed and beautiful day to celebrate the gifts we are so fortunate to have in our lives; family, friends, health, love and peace!
Dino met with our sculpture winner and delivered her beautiful, one-of-a-kind Sylverna. Sylviette Young, our winner who purchased her ticket at the Comic Con weekend in August, was thrilled with her prize and we are thrilled for her. This was such a fun raffle we will probably do it again, so keep checking our facebook and website, for updates.
When things in my own life feel like they are going just as bad as possible, I try to remind myself that there are others out there who have things much worse than me. And then my thoughts turn to gratitude for what I do have and how fortunate I am for the simple things. So for now I will be grateful and allow the gifts to flow into my universe. I am grateful for my family, my friends, my ability to work, to write and to dream. May we all find gratitude in our daily living.
Long Awaited; Traegonia the Ember Rune is published and available on line from our website and our publisher. We are still awaiting our copies, hopefully for this weekend and for Chicago Comic Con Aug.11-14. Join us in celebrating the Release of the second book in the Traegonia Series.
Traegons are mystical creatures of the forest, and although they look a bit scary they are actually kind and gentle with so much to share. In book one, Traegonia the Sunbow Prophecy, Traegons make their first appearance in a forest in a rural town in the midwest state of Illinois. They share with the reader not only their adventure but they introduce the reader to other creatures who play important roles in the natural world around us. Some are creatures we see every day and others are ones we may never see or may never see again. These are real creatures that are protected or endangered in the areas where the story is set. Book two, Traegonia the Ember Rune, takes the main characters, Dino, Karia and Juna to the mountains of Northern California. Here they meet a couple of young girls and a whole new community of Traegons. Once again they also meet other creatures, real animals, that have their own story to tell. A story more real than you might imagine. Traveling with the Traegons on their journey is more than just an adventure series, but an intertwining of friendships, knowledge, and understanding. Each place that they explore in each book in the series will also give the reader bits of knowledge about these very real places.
Book three, still untitled, will take Dino, Karia and Juna into an urban setting, where they will discover a rogue group of Traegons who have over time been separated from their culture and their ways. They have become scavengers and found very creative ways to survive in one of the largest cities in the United States. The adventure awaits….. We are really excited about book three and will keep you posted. New geographic location, new Traegons, new real life lessons, we look forward to continuing to bring their world to you and you decide, are they real? Do you believe?
Traegons live anywhere there is earth, trees, land and anywhere they can hide and remain undiscovered, so that is potentially all over the world. Where will they turn up next? Give us your answer in the comments section on our poll.

Blood, Sweat and Tears; Today was one of the tears days. We have been working so hard to get book two in our hands by 8/5. We have run into snags and frustrations, and now as we are down to the wire, fear and stress has crept in and pushed me over the edge…. I am physically and emotionally drained but I am not going to give up, because I believe we can make this happen. Sometimes the prize is that much sweeter when you have struggled to make it happen. This book has been a labor of love and energizes us when we work on it, think about and create… Send us your good thoughts, help us to see the book at completion. The more energy put into something the the more powerful it becomes. Thank you for your thoughts and support.
