Hello Spring!

The temperatures are rising and the snowbirds are taking their leave for cooler realms. I look around at the lovely flowers here. Yes, there are gorgeous flowers here in the desert and I wanted to share a few of them with you.

As I continue with my walks around our neighborhood, I notice the vibrant colors that seem to challenge me to rush home and draw some of my own flowers and plants for my fictional world.  I may have to do that very soon, certainly before spring ends.  This reminds me of KABAM.

I will be there to promote my two books and talk about the third I am working on. If you are anywhere in the area of Kingman, AZ. Stop by and visit. The weather is usually nice and there is a lot to see. If you aren't an author, but are curious about becoming one, there publishers and artists there who can help learn what to do. There will be an Authors' Tent as well as vendors and entertainment, but you must register first. I am also making a lot of beaded bookmarkers to sell. They have been selling well and a good way to promote my books.  

My current book is about half way done. I do my own illustrations and book layout so that takes a lot of time from writing. I will try to share some graphics in the future to share with you.  Until then, keep writing!

Happy St. Patricks Day!

I went this afternoon to our local Irish pub so I could get some Corned Beef and Cabbage in honor of this fun holiday. When I got home I listened to some Celtic tunes and decided to post something today.  Since Tiaera is not Earth, the closest thing I could find in my notes for a shamrock was this little plant. I call it Naelosian Clover. It is found mostly in Naelos where it is very green and lush. Much of it has been transplanted in many other parts of the world since the fays there like to bring a bit of their homeland with them. Like our own clover, it serves well as ground cover where the weather is damp and cool. The typical plant has eight leaves and is spotted, not very typical of our own clover.

I hope you all have a nice and blessed day wearing green and RPing as Irish folk. Have fun and I promise to post again very soon. Cheers!!
