All Hail the Queen!

Sir Alex Dragon 1_1024x768

I’m pleased to introduce Queen Isadora from my latest children’s picture book project titled Sir Alex Sleighs a Dragon illustrated by Jack Wiens.

An Invitation

My other dragon book, Flora Belle and Dreami Dragon, is within weeks of being released. I’d love to send a sneak preview copy of this story and some of its illustrations to anyone who be willing to read it and provide some comments I can consider using for the back cover and elsewhere for marketing purposes. Please note that the story is not yet in book form, and due to space limitations not all comments are likely to be used.

Please let me know as soon as possible if you’d like to accept my invitation.

Thank you!

With Love,

  1. Hello Russ,
    Due to a sleepless night, I was able to go through my blog email notices. Your illustration caught my eyes immediately. I love the colors. Of course, the story too. And, to have you use my name is an honor. I’m glad to have been with you from the beginning of your time of your editing. I hope to continue to be a part of your journey to publication. Although I’ve read your preview of Flora Belle and Dreami Dragon, I haven’t seen the illustrations. If you would like me to I would be happy to add my review thoughts. I’m smiling as I add my CONGRATULATIONS and GOOD WISHES.
    All the best,
    Isadora 😎

    blockquote, div.yahoo_quoted { margin-left: 0 !important; border-left:1px #715FFA solid !important; padding-left:1ex !important; background-color:white !important; } I’d love to accept your invitation. It would be fun to get a preview of your latest. 🤗 Also, I need to find the message that offered – was it 3 of 5 titles for $20?
