I want to say, Thank you! to all those people who took advantage of last weekend's promotion to download free copies of Take The Wind Up With You for their kindles and kindle readers. I'm happy to report that Tlocan is now in the air over Japan, the UK, Germany, and Canada, as well as many copies to the US! I hope you all enjoy the flights!
I wanted to share a copy of the first sketch of Ha-Keen that I made, trying to capture his intensity and wisdom. I have to admit, he still looks pretty young in this sketch. While it's true that rodents do age very gracefully, I am still working on how to show his advanced age, something that Tlocan realized very quickly when he was sizing him up.
Until next time, enjoy an exciting story and have a good time with your kin!

|The high canyons|
I found what might have been the mouse caves where Regia's clan lives, a long line of shallow caves above a line of undercuts and large caves that might shelter other animals.

But almost ten years went by before the story was ready to unfold in this world. As I edited the original manuscript, I realized how much affection I have for these characters, and I hope the richness of their lives as I see them comes through in the story.

Tlocan begins one adventure, and it becomes a much greater one. Before it's over, both he and Ha-Keen learn things about themselves that they never expected.
Take The Wind Up With You will be available for Kindle and Kindle reader apps on amazon.com VERY SOON!
