Meet the druid, Daughter Gaidel

With just under a week until the Thought Bubble Festival in Leeds, my excitement about this event is palpable. The convention booth is coming together and I think the idea of cos-playing a group of Redwood villagers relaxing at the Lady’s Grace inn to help sell the book was an inspired idea. The poster, bookmarks, and first print run of the book is in hand. sigh of relief here>

Now, the part that really has me stoked is along with those of us at the booth, a friend has coordinated for a couple to walk around the festival’s three huge convention rooms dressed as the druid, Daughter Gaidel, and her shieldwarden, Two Elks. They will be handing out bookmarks and directing people to the booth. I just received photos of the costume and vision this talented young woman, her name is Inge, has for Gaidel and wanted to share them. The photos were taken by, Tracey, a friend of hers. Oh, and no, she did not shave her head for this event; that is well applied makeup.

I would love to know what everyone thinks?

I will be attending Thought Bubble Festival 2013 in Leeds this year to advertise/sell “The Cradle of the Gods” book. We are going to be cosplaying a scene from the Three Arrows Inn in Redwood village. The poster for the back of the stall has arrived. Check it out! Now that is a cover! We are still waiting on the bookmarks and the first print run of the book. Fingers crossed! All this during Nanowrimo. What was I thinking?

New hardcover for The Cradle of the Gods

Just finished the second day into National Novel Writer’s Month. I’m well into the second book of the Soulstone Prophecy series. Even though I’m focusing on the next book, I still have to keep the momentum of the first book going. So, here is a pdf of the upcoming Cradle Hardcover. The white space is where the ISBN barcode is going to go. As soon as I approve the proof copy it will be available on Amazon for purchase.
