Announcing a new book and a new blog
Yesterday I published my second e-book on Amazon.com. This one is my first work of fiction. It's a story for kids of age 10 or 11 to 75 or 80. It tells about the adventures of a young Golden eagle when he gets trapped in a fierce desert thunderstorm and meets a very surprising new friend.
I've started a new blog to write about it, because I want to share its story as a book, and talk about the characters more.
If you do take a look at the book (the first chapter is available for viewing on Amazon), thank you, and I hope you enjoy it. I really enjoyed writing it, and at this point, I feel like both Tlocan and Ha-Keen—the two main characters—are family. I'd love for you to meet them.
And yep—that's my cover art. The idea came to me as a visual image after several days of intense worrying and wondering about what I should do for the cover. I would have loved to have Matisse do something for it. Oh well. I'm hoping someday to turn it into a print copy, but that's going to take a lot more paintings. It's a very visual story.
