Novels and Novelties in Hendersonville, NC

I visited The Fountainhead Bookstore (soon to be renamed Novels and Novelties) in Hendersonville, NC on Monday. (Okay the picture below is from an earlier visit on a sunnier day.) Monday it rained and rained. Despite the weather, the visit was great. I always feel welcome in Hendersonville and the bookstore is full of books and charm.  I did a store event, a podcast with local author Ken Butcher, and later met for a delicious dinner with the tween book club.

Along with sword fighting and book talk, the store had a contest for ‘Best Dragon Art” and the winner, Ruth, drew an outstanding dragon!

If you’re in Hendersonville, make sure to stop by The Fountainhead Bookstore (soon to be Novels and Novelties) for cool books, great people, and neat gifts.

First Review for Book Two…

Yay! It was great to see this from Kirkus for book two QUEST MAKER in my The Last Dragon Charmer series. I’m really excited about the second book so I hope others will be too. Beware, though, spoilers abound in the middle paragraph of the review!

The Contents and Acknowledments Dragon is Getting Angry

Content Dragon 2Above is the new art for the Contents and Acknowledgements pages in QUEST MAKER: The Last Dragon Charmer #2 and the dragon is getting a bit riled up!  It looks like it’s ready to eat someone. ROAR!  It’s standing up, wings spread, and reading to attack!Dragon Picture

This is the dragon as it is hanging out in VILLAIN KEEPER: The Last Dragon Charmer #1.  It’s still a bit ornery, but hasn’t spread its wings or turned to hiss at the reader yet. Those contents and acknowledgments pages must make it hungry. And in book two, it must be ravenous.

The cover for the second book in my series will be revealed Wednesday, June 24th, at the HarperCollins Children’s Tumblr. The book two cover has great colors in my opinion and is very striking.  I can’t wait to link it and show everyone.

Yay!
