Happy Belated 2022, Everyone! 😆
I know, I know, it's already Mid-May, but somehow this blog post ended up in my "drafts" folder, and I didn't notice until recently (oops!).
I have a bit of belated news for you, in case you don't follow my social media posts. As you may know, my first self-published book, The Elephant and the Dragon, was released in the fall of 2018. Early last year, I got the notion to expand this fable and create a longer tale, but decided on adding two separate fables instead, with plans to eventually create a Fable Triad.
I asked my amazing critique group to look over the first fable, then the second, and their input was invaluable—as usual. Then I talked with my father, and he was happy to sketch the images for this one too (yay!). I know authors—just like parents—should not have favorites, but I think I like this story a little better than the first one (shhh, don't tell The Elephant and the Dragon).
And so, after a year of writing and revisions . . . The Dolphin and the Octopus is now available for you to enjoy as both an ebook and a paperback! 🥳🥳🥳 It is meant to encompass the same pre-historical timeframe of the first tale, yet takes place above and around an immense oceanic reef. The creatures of the warm equatorial waters are tested when they come face-to-face with a fearsome cold water sea serpent.

As always, I appreciate your interest in my work! If you've had the opportunity to read any of my published stories, please take the time to drop by Amazon, Goodreads, or any other book-friendly online store and write an honest review. Thanks! 📚💙
