Lady Drusilla O’Teague, 3rd daughter in a powerful line of psychically gifted women, and trained from birth as warrior and Dragon Talker. Unable to shield herself from the seesaw emotions of others as child, she learned to distrust her own feelings.

Lucas Lewellyn is an off-world survivor of the Karamine Wars. He is the hereditary bard of his people. He has the inherent ability to compel with his voice, but he is untrained in the use of his powers. He knows when he meets Drusilla the first time that their destinies are linked, but will she admit it?

Their world of Vensoog is in danger. The Thieves Guild wants the deposits of Azorite—the mighty crystals used to power spaceships found in large numbers on Vensoog. To save their world, Drusilla and Lucas are going to need the help of the genetically crafted children created by that same Thieves Guild. They must work together to defeat their enemies.

Juliette Jones—crafted in the Guild’s genetic Labs to be super smart, ruthless, wily and conniving--the perfect spy. But the Guild never realized they had also given her a loving heart.

Lucinda Karns—the daughter of a Thieves Guild Lieutenant, she was given enhanced creativity genes to make her the perfect icy thinker and planner; but those genes sparked a need for balance giving her a moral compass.

Violet Ishimara— She was designed with a high degree of empathy to be a tool for the Guild, but her alliance with the Vensoog Sand Dragon Jelli gave her the courage to stand up to her masters.

 Rupert, the intuitive chemist and Roderick, the electronic genius — Orphaned twins who were seen by the Guild as tools to turn into weapons, turned out to be a lot tougher than the Guild expected. 

 

The Modern Artist's Handbook

$ 12.95 USD

If you ever wanted to become a professional artist or writer or already a pro but never used the internet this is the best starter for you. The information here was first introduced in the Blog “The Practical Artist”. It has been revised and edited into a coherent whole.

 The Modern Artist Handbook was first introduced as a series of pamphlets covering many topics about how to function as an artist in today's ever-changing world. Most of the things covered here were already published on The Practical Artist’s Blog. It is a non-fiction book, based primarily on my experiences as a struggling artist and my business background. I hope you find it helpful and that reading it prevents you from making my mistakes.

Section 1 An Introduction To The Internet Age, introduces the terms and issues found on the internet for artistsjust starting out or just beginning to take their first steps into the digital world.

Section 2 The Hard Stuff, introduces  taxes, copyright issues licenses, insurance and record keeping in the Internet Age.

Section 3 Art Show Basics, shows how to put on a small regional art show or a personal show. It covers things such as budgeting, selecting a judge and renting a space, advertising, insurance, etc. Sample documents and forms are included.

Section 4 Framing On A Budget, covers some of the ways to make your art look good without fracturing your bank account, framing in general, and the difference between framing for the home décor market and art shows or galleries.

Section 5 Selling At Art An Event, gives an overview of what types of sales events are usually available and how to prepare to sell your work there. It covers some of the pitfalls of selling originals at such an event, how to report your sales to the proper state agency and how to obtain a state sellers permit.

 Section 6 – Artist / Writer Resources, has actual samples of the contracts and worksheets mentioned in the other five sections. There are also photos to help the reader visualize what is actually being described in some of the other sections.
