It feels great to finally be able to give you all an update on my progress with the illustrations I’ve been working on for the first book in a planned series of Corgi fantasy books (middle grade, ages 7-10) by author, K. Kibbee. I spoke more about this project when I made the announcement that I am illustrating a book series.
I was invited to beta read by author, Dan Alatorre, for his upcoming book, The Navigators. This book is about a group of archeologists who stumble upon a time machine buried deep beneath the ground at a mine in central Florida. Relationships are tested. People get hurt. Questions are answered about what happens when something of such value is discovered by the masses. In this fast-paced read, Dan doesn’t let his reader’s minds wander. He keeps us running from one scene to the next, trying to help the character’s figure out the best way to turn.
The moment I started listening to the audiobook, Blackbringr, the first in Laini Taylor‘s Middle Grade Fantasy series, Faeries of Dreamdark, I was introduced to the many voices of Davina Porter. The voices she used for each of the characters were meticulously crafted and delivered with artful precision. They truly brought the story to life.
Bibliophile (noun): anyone who loves books or is a collector of books
I am a true bibliophile, loving books in all their many forms. Words are powerful. They can make a person feel all facets of emotion just by reading them on the page.
