The Ragworts are Coming!

It looks like my little friends from Brokenfell Village will be in Twistedoak quicker than I thought! The teams at AuthorHouse have been outstanding–and I mean OUTSTANDING! Jeremy Haesley, my Author Coordinator, was wonderful as was everyone in succession. They, AuthorHouse, have had such a bad rep, that I felt inclined to tell of my experience.  Don’t believe everything you read.

Anyways, am super psyched!  Illustrations are done as is their placement in the book.  Now, it’s up to the production team.  What I like about these guys is that they let you know, every step of the way, what is going on.  If there is something not quite right, they let you know and work with you to fix it. It’s been a great experience and considering my cost on the first book, not even close.

So, it looks like my new family of gnomes, the Ragworts of Brokenfell, will be out there sooner than later.  As long as it continues to go on schedule, it could be out as soon as June! Am so pleased!

The Ragworts of Brokenfell will be available in book and ebook format on Amazon.com and through AuthorHouse!

 

 

 

The Ragwort Chronicles

A very special kind of gnome, those Ragworts are. Everything about them is a bit peculiar.  Not natural farmers, like most of the gnomes of Twistedoak, the Ragworts of Brokenfell march to a different beat. It is rumored that Poppa Ragwort fought in the Blue Azuric Wars  Can you believe, a gnome soldier? They even live is a peculiar type of house.

If the doorway was the mouth, then the windows were the eyes. Nonna Ragwort, Poppa’s wife, made curtains that made the windows look like they had eyelids. At night, candles were lit and put in the windows of the house. As the town gnomes passed by the house, they would tell stories about how the “eyes” of the house followed them. At Halloween, the little ones would dare each other to make faces at the house. Besides the carved out “eyes,” this old stone dwarf wore a helmet. The shape of the helmet made a perfectly good roof. As odd looking as the house was, it was made it warm and comfortable by Nonna Ragwort.
