It's finally done! #FantasyDressedAnimals will be available to purchase on Amazon March 14th! This one (and all the books before it) was a labor of love, and I'm excited to share it with you. On the release day, I'll be live posting with the book and original drawings. I'll talk about my process, inspirations, and what's next for Believe In Wonder Publishing. Tune in and ask questions - I love questions! Thank you for supporting us! #diversityinpublishing #diversecharacters #Blackowned #WNDB #fantasy #swordandsorcery #dnd #anthropomorphic #drawings #art

By hook or by crook, I made it here!!!! Yay WILLAMETTE WRITERS!! Both classes, Visual Storytelling and Creating Diverse Worlds, went really well. Diverse World-Building was pretty popular, and was filled to capacity. They had to turn people away! I'm really proud that I had an opportunity to share my joy and knowledge about creative writing with so many. I want to send out a huge thank you and lots of love to the Willamette Writers Conference organizers (in particular John Doverand Kate Ristau) for a wonderful weekend! My classes were filled with energetic, creative, and open-minded authors, and I couldn't have been more pleased. Thank you all for your questions and your enthusiasm (and for overfilling the room on my last class - huge confidence booster for me!) I'm really looking forward to next year, and hope to be back. #BelieveInWonder
I had an awesome time with the kiddos, and I hope they treasure their copies of Darren Strider: Bumblebee Rider. :)
Believe In Wonder had the wonderful honor of being selected reader at the Writers of Color Spring Showcase, hosted by Reema Zaman and hosted by Literary Arts along with Ooligan Press! This is the second installment of this series, which is intended to evolve beyond an annual event and promote a larger, more holistic conversation and tangible results for diversity in book publishing. The work we presented was Josie Parker's picture book masterpiece, OBI THE CHANGELING, and the book was well received. The enthusiasm and talent of the writers present was inspiring, and it was great to get a chance to mix and mingle with our literary peers.

Another great day with another great group of young people. I feel really blessed to have the opportunity to talk about creativity and storytelling with students.
Thanks everybody that came by Cosmic Monkey Comics for Free Comic Book Day! I was there in the afternoon, representing Believe In Wonder Publishing, and had a chance to hang out with some awesome folks. As special thanks to Sean Fishback, editor and educator extraordinaire, for tabling with me. :) Fun times!
