Fellowship & Fairydust 2021

I am happy to report that Avellina Balestri and Wesley Hutchins picked one of my older poems for their Spring 2021 edition of Fellowship & Fairydust. This edition is titled "Life, Death, and Rebirth."

My poem, "Forest Essence" is on page 83 here:

Fellowship & Fairydust is "...a literary magazine inspiring faith and creativity and exploring the arts through a spiritual lens. We follow in the footsteps of J.R.R. Tolkien, C.S. Lewis, G.K. Chesterton, George MacDonald and others who combined their Christian sacramental imagination with a love of storytelling. We also branch out into other storytelling traditions from around the world to cultivate intercultural and interreligious understanding. We accept submissions of fiction, non-fiction, poetry and prose, as well as artwork and photography."

Anytime I can be included in a list that mentions J.R.R. Tolkien and C.S. Lewis, you know it has been a good day.

Wishes Cost Too Much


So this looks like it will happen soon. My publicist (me) suggested I wait, but the marketing team (me) thought it was best to create some interest before the official press release. Waiting on final edits from the publisher.

Stay tuned for more shameless self-promotion.

It Has Started

"It's the job that's never started as takes longest to finish." ~J. R. R. Tolkien

So, I've been thinking about this for a while.  Now I have started it.

I will be publishing, as the mood strikes me, art and vignettes about the Land of Salvania.  I hope you like them.

Eventually, I hope other fantasy artists and writers will come play in my sandbox and start their own Salvania works.

My first two vignettes are here:

In Use, Baby!

Gwinnett County Public Library added two more of my children's books to their collection, so I checked them today...

Space Art Video

I am working on a space art book for the Rocket Team series.  It is suitable for all ages, even adults.  In fact, at least one member of the Russian space agency (Roscosmos) asked for a print of one image.

The art, like the Rocket Team, celebrates international cooperation.  It includes fanciful imagery of many nations exploring the solar system.  The video below is a small taste of the art coming in the book.  It's already over 32 pages.
