I’ve been asked if I am willing to create some posters out of the original drawings of the books? I would definitely be up for it since the art is so beautiful. I do want to consult with my illustrator to make sure that it is okay first. If Grace says it is okay then I have three of four in mind to create posters! Stay tuned! ❤️
Made it to top two best sellers! Wow! Thanks everyone for the support!
I have my books ordered and ready to go! I will be doing a segment called kohkom trails. Seeing where Grandma Grace is off too. Taking photos of the book in different places and see where we end up. We are now on an adventure! #kohkomtrails
I ordered my books! Reminder I am giving away 5 books to schools as well as 5 books away to people who are on my Facebook author page!
I will also be doing a Facebook live unboxing and doing the give away! I will be doing an update on how to enter the five book giveaway. ❤️ thanks for all the support!
I have been getting requests for two spirit characters to be in my second book. I am all for it! I am now decided to bring in two spirit people to critique my drafts and see the development of the character(s). I always open to what people want to see and two spirit people in my next book is going to be a good thing. We need to show our love and support for the two spirit peoples in our communities. We need to show them that they are loved and supported.
Friesen press has released my author page! It gives a bio on me and my book! It will be available very soon! I have the link and linked it below! I hope people like this book it is near to my heart. It has to do with life and death and after what happens. As indigenous people I feel a lot of us deal with death more then other people. I once heard that I got to more funerals then weddings and I believe that. I hope you like the book if you have any questions feel free to contact me.
I’ve been asked a few times if I would like to go on a book tour.
I am definitely not against it. If schools or libraries are interested in having me. That is definitely something I can further think upon. Since I am a self published author I would mostly have to fund everything myself. I am in my last semester of University. So I don’t think it would happen right away. But I am interested and if that’s what people would like to see I am not opposed to it.
The very lovely talented Grace Avery-Parkman has given me the water colour drawings for my book. What I’ve been looking at on the screen and what I’ve looked at in person all the small details you miss looking on a screen. Thank you Grace for giving these to me.
