My likely next book project is tentatively titled, Sir Alex Sleighs a Dragon (It will include a sleigh in the cover illustration so readers will know I’ve not accidentally misspelled “Slay.”)
This story features a young boy who faces his fears as he attempts to save everyone by making a mean and scary dragon go away.
I plan to dedicate Sir Alex Sleighs a Dragon to my grandson Alex who loves dragons, among other fierce creatures. It’s taken me over two years to come up with a story that I believe would do Alex justice, but I believe I’ve finally found it. Alex is the handsome young man on the right. One of my earlier books, Zach and the Toad Who Rode a Bull, was dedicated to Alex’s twin brother Zach (on the left in the photo.)
I bet that will make Alex feel really Special! ♡
Thank you, Diana. I hope it makes him feel as special as he is.
I love the concept of the book and that picture of you with the boys is simply adorable! ❤
Thank you times two, Mrs P!
Wonderful and s.w.e.e.t. ❤
Thank you, Tess.
You are welcome, Russ.
What a lovely pictures of you 3 “boys”. How attentive and focused they are. It must be such a pleasure sitting with granddad listening to his stories. It’s wonderful!
Thank you, Ute. I don’t know about them, but I certainly love reading to my grandsons!
how wonderful and i love the word play in the title. as soon as i saw the name in the title, i wondered if it was dedicated to your grandson.
I’m glad to hear it, Beth. Once I had the title the story quickly came to me.
I bet you will have this book published just in time for me to read it to my first great grandson who is due next May. I’ll share this post with my granddaughter. Maybe she’ll name the baby Alex – who knows?
LOL! You’re right; who knows? Wouldn’t that be something? ;-D!
Sounds like it will be a great story
Thank you, Joanne. I like the sound of that.
Lucky Alex 🙂
