What’s Up?

What’s Up?

Not real sure, around here, we keep seeing some odd-looking Dragons.  It’s a picture/board book idea that Julie is working on.  She is drawing dragon faces now.

Did you know that Julie drew all the pictures in Snowball?  We are trying to get her to write a blog post about. She keeps telling us she isn’t an artist.

Monday Afternoon Water Cooler

Monday Afternoon Water Cooler

Well, we are still up, and running. There was some debate around here about keeping or ditching this blog. We have high hopes at some point of having a function, (you can buys stuff) website.  We just aren’t there, yet.  Ok, truth be told, one of us isn’t there yet.

Confused yet?

Well, then I am just not doing my job if you aren’t.

Remember that first book was a children’s story.  Well, not all my writing is suitable for children.  That is why, if you remember, a new blog for more mature stories was started.  J-Kolb.com  to be exact.  Over there I just posted my first thousand words of the original rough draft of Sinister.
