Launch Week for “The Sun’s Rival (Book Five of The Wilderhark Tales)” continues today with a special treat.
Some of you may know, while others may be surprised to learn, that I’ve long harbored the dream of becoming an animator. Blame it on a lifetime love of Disney classics. While, alas, there’s little chance of me going out to develop those skills anytime soon (writing and publishing being my full-time gig, for the foreseeable future), I have taken a stab at one small piece of the animation process: Storyboarding*.
*Storyboard. Noun. A panel or series of panels on which a set of sketches is arranged depicting consecutively the important changes of a scene and action in a series of shots (as for a film, television show, or commercial).**
**Sing hey for the insertion of dictionary definitions! Talk about an Ever On Word throwback!
So here now, for your visual pleasure, is my best attempt to capture a tiny snippet from my newest novella. Enjoy, and then stick around for further Launch Week announcements. ^_^
Thanks, Your Highnessness Laraspur and Ionquin, for posing for me. X3
In other business, let’s give a big hand to Emma Michaels, Elena “Eve” Jacob, Rewan Tremethick, Michelle Proulx, Kendra Conine, and Anna “Emaginette” Simpson for hosting me on the “Sun’s Rival” Launch Week Blog Tour! (More tour stops to come; stay tuned!) The tour-wide Rafflecopter giveaway is still running, with 5 lovely prizes awaiting 5 lucky winners.
And let’s not forget about Giveaway #2, the full details of which can be found here. …well, not the full details. As I’ve said before, there’s still the Secret Prize to announce. And that prize is… a print of the sketchbook page containing the artwork of the “Sun’s Rival” storyboard above!
So, what are you waiting for? Enter away! And if you haven’t yet, be sure to order your own copy of “The Sun’s Rival (Book Five of The Wilderhark Tales)!”
