It has been some time since my last post, so here’s a quick update.
Dragons of the Past, Book Four in the Dragons of Nibiru series, will be at the typesetter later this month and is targeted for release in April. I had a blast writing this latest in the series, and I hope you have as much fun reading it!
Dragon-Themed Gift Boxes
Lately, in addition to writing Book Five, Dragons of the Future, I’ve been busy expanding out the Dragons of Nibiru franchise with the release of the first of my dragon-themed gift boxes.
Here you can see the contents of a few that are already on store shelves! (Photos of the actual boxes coming shortly...)
At this writing there are six boxes available:
* Dragons and Crystals
* Bath Time with a Dragon
* Date Night with a Dragon
* Dragons and More Dragons
* Snack Time with a Dragon
* Dragon Treasures
Each box includes a signed copy of Book One in the series, The Dragons of Nibiru, or any other book in the series—your choice! Each also contains a delightful assortment of interesting, tasty, useful or just plain magical items from artisans and small business owners, all related to the theme of the box.
Again, these boxes are available now. Just write me using the form on the “Contact” page, or email me direct: email@example.com. I’ll send you a list of the contents of the box or boxes you’re interested in. Once you’ve made your choice, we’ll make quick and easy arrangements for payment and shipping—and your box will be on its way!
Soon this will all be even easier: Every box will be shown and described on a special page on this website, and you’ll be able to order directly from the site.
And by the way, I'm working on setting up super-fast shipping via DragonFlight Express, so no one will be kept waiting for their boxes to arrive.
One reason I started this box project was due to the impact covid has had on artisans and small businesses. I reached out to local craftspeople for the first of the boxes, but now I'm expanding my reach in creating future ones, all to assist others in making their creations and products known, and getting them into people's hands.
A few of the future boxes being considered include:
* Dragons and Puppy Lovers
* Dragons and Kitten Lovers
* Every Senior Deserves a Dragon
* Every Kid Deserves a Dragon
If you have an idea for a box theme, send it my way!
And if there’s an item you’d like to see in one of my boxes, please write and tell me about it.
Auctions and Prizes and Baskets, Oh My!
Over the past few months, I have donated books to several silent auctions and door prize baskets. Below you can see an image from the grand opening of the Localeh Artisan Market in nearby Kelowna, where my books and boxes are now available.
Call for Artwork!
On a separate and important note, there’s still time to submit a drawing or painting for Dragons of the Past, before it goes to print. So please send your good work to firstname.lastname@example.org. Team Nibiru will announce the chosen artists and their artwork here on my blog, shortly before Dragons of the Past is released. Each winner will receive three signed copies of Dragons of the Past, along with $50 as purchase payment for their drawing or painting. Good luck!
That's all for now, but check back here now and then, because there's more exciting news coming soon...
