While I continued to wear a spiffy blue cast on my lower arm, I imagine it actually looks like this. I’m charmed by this photo.
Plus, I am writing about Lady Zepherine in the fourth installment of The Fairies of Carlow. Her namesake rose isn’t such a light pink but is equally beautiful. It’s a more cerise pink, maybe a medium dusty pink, so she makes a statement when she enters a room! There’s no blending in for someone wearing a cerise pink gown.
While I’m unable to write without sending pain throughout my hand and wrist, I am busy plotting in my head. My notebook is filled with ideas (my right hand, my handwriting hand, is fully capable!) and I’m starting to form another novel under a different author’s name.
The next Guinness the Therapy Dog book is also close to being sent to the illustrator.
Exciting stuff, huh?!?!?
I hope your week is filled with success, too. Sonja
Recently, I posted about an upcoming book in the Guinness the Therapy Dog series. Now that I’m in final edits for that one, I have decided to write a fourth book in my popular Fairies of Carlow series!
A reader (and Ig friend) asked questions about Lady Zepherine, the mentor Gilded Fairy from The Fairies of Carlow: The Gilding.
That got me thinking, and the good lady demanded that her story be told. I am discovering her history and will tell the story of her younger years.
How did she become a Gilded Fairy? Who is she related to (since all Gildeds are royal)? What is her relationship to Fern the Gilded? Why is she Fern the Gilded’s mentor? Did she ask for that role, or was she assigned?
All those questions (and more!) will be answered in the new book. The title is pending!
Yes, that’s Book 2 of the Guinness the Therapy Dog series. Entitled ‘Guinness Goes to the Library’, this book tells about Guinness’s adventures when he takes part in the Read-to-a-Dog program at the public library.
He likes to listen to the younger kids read books to him, especially when they show him the pictures. In this book, Guinness reveals one of his special powers: he can see colors! Most dogs only see black and white, but he can see all the colors of the rainbow.
I hope you enjoy reading about Guinness’s adventures. Sonja
I’m proud to announce the release of my latest book, “The Voyage”. This illustrated book chronicles the travels of the Reverend John Wing and his family as he ministered through England, Germany, and The Netherlands. After his death, his family traveled across the Atlantic Ocean on the William and Francis.
It took them 88 days to travel from England to Boston. They settled in Plymouth Colony before resettling in Sandwich, Massachusetts as founders of that town.
This is written as an easy-to-read book and has multiple vibrant illustrations by Emma Crick. Miss Crick lives in England and was born near Sandwich, Kent–the namesake city of the settlement on Cape Cod.
This book is so close to my heart. It’s based on my own family history and I’m excited to share it with you. The illustrations are beautiful and you can fall into them as you look at all the details.
This book will be available exclusively on Amazon.com and should be published before Christmas. I will have a link in the left margin of this website when the book is available. It will be a first reader and I plan to embed hyperlinks into the text of the ebook. If the reader is interested, they can click on the link to read more about a particular subject or person.
