#amwriting #paranormal #publishing #wendyfallon #malicedomestic Cali May’s next adventure! Cali researches her family tree and finds a long lost cousin, Lola Penrose, living on the Gulf Coast of Florida. Lola invites her to come for a visit, and stay in the Penrose Retreat House. Cali arrives the morning after the murder of Lola’s Aunt Gracie, and not only stumbles over the dead body, but also a group of brooding spirits who arrive to help Gracie into the afterlife. Did the murder have anything to do with the large, sealed, clay pot, dating from the 1500’s, Gracie found buried in the crawlspace under her cottage? And are there really man-eating alligators in Florida?

The first goal of this Workbook is to teach you to draw. It includes the following basic concepts that should be a part of any beginning drawing class.
Straight Lines and Curves
Drawing Complex Objects Using Simple Shapes
Encouraging Creativity & Self-Confidence
Learning the basics of hand drawing, however, is not the most important goal of this Workbook. The foremost function of this class is to provide you with step-by-step exercises that encourage you to exercise your right brain. In doing so, you should be able to loosen up and relax about your own perceived lack of skill or training, and encourage self-confidence in what is possible for you to accomplish in your own life.
Drawing the American Southwest
How to draw the Animals & Cacti of the Arizona-Sonora Desert.
I’ll keep you posted about my progress with each of these Workbooks. I’m also writing an American Southwest Paranormal Murder Mystery! Stay tuned, and thank you for reading.

(…and this is a perfect example of why you should join my mailing list! These announcement may not always be included on my web site.)
OK, so nobody said it would be an easy or short learning curve.
I’ve just clicked the button to place my new book, My Six-Year-Old Inner Artist, Everybody has one!into production in print and as an e-book on Createspace.com. To be honest, I’m thrilled to have navigated the entire process from the glimmer of a book idea all the way through to actually holding it in my hands!
Tip: when publishing anything, DO NOT anticipate or announce an exact publishing date. At least not until AFTER your editor is done with it, or you may end up like me, sounding like the boy who cried wolf. Those who’ve initially expressed an interest in reading or purchasing your baby may have evaporated by the time it’s a physical product and available for sale.
And about that one last little click of a button that makes your baby available to the world? This is what you get in return: ‘Your book will be available immediately on Createspace.com, and in 3-5 days on Amazon.’ It makes sense, since they have to set up the digital process for producing your book, but for those of us awestruck by the magic of instant digital gratification, it’s an eternity!
However, I’m still dancing my happy dance, and hope you’ll keep me in mind in 3-5 days, when you, too, can order your own copy of my book, My Six-Year-Old Inner Artist, Everybody has one!and learn how to identify and strengthen your own inner artist, and put it to work creating a life to fall in love with!
You are all getting a sneak peak at my latest project, My Six-Year-Old Inner Artist
The book is based on my belief that all of us have a creative component (our right-brain functions, or inner artist), that acts as our survival gene.
I credit my inner artist with my emotional, financial and creative recovery after
losing everything in the latest, greatest recession. Having co-founded an art gallery with exhibit space, classrooms, and artists’ studios, with a former business partner, the loses were particularly devastating. Not only did we lose the Gallery, I lost my income, financial security, benefits, friendships, and my family
lost our home.
Find out how my family and I rebuilt our lives, and how my inner artist contributed to finding not only new employment, but a new direction.
Scheduled Publishing Date: Dec. 1, 2014
