Childhood Imagination Sows Seeds of Future Brilliance
Marta Pelrine Bacon’s novel: The Blue Jar is a quirky tale that is absolutely compelling to read. Marta is a new author and a gifted artist. Again, I am proud to publish her. I don’t have the cover to show you yet, as the book is still in the editing stage. But here is a picture of one of the beautiful Greetings Cards illustrated by Marta for Plum Tree Books. P.s. Launch soon!
These cards come with attachable poems and are unique! I have found some wonderful artists, including Marta Pelrine Bacon, Maria Antonietta Terrana, and Susie Bertie whose images I have captured and now share with you. All of these ladies donated works to auction for the Song Of Sahel earlier in the year.
I will also be launching a range of niche children’s books that I have written with illustrations from Marta and Maria.
George and the Frog is the first in the series focusing on helping children with their emotions. In this first story, we find George coming face to face with the death of his frog. His grandfa’ is there to help, of course!
In the second story of this series, we will meet Anabel Wagstaff who throws a tantrum! A story for children and parents about how to cope with temper! It is completely written in rhyme!
With gorgeous illustrations by award-winning artist, Maria Antonietta Terrana, we feel this series of books will have broad appeal.
The second Plum tree series is all about how everything in the garden serves a purpose. Really, it is basic science for small children. The garden, after all, is a magical place and the natural eco-system is a thing of wonder. In the first story, Rosie learns the purpose of wearing wellington boots!
In the second story, Wolly The Worm, Rosie learns how worms bring food to the table.
Marta Pelrine-Bacon adds her magical, quirky touch to the illustrations.
And I must not forget to mention my own impending publication: the follow-up to Orange Petals In A Storm in the Skyla McFee series: Exaltation Of A Rose.
As both of these stories are novella sized, I have incorporated them into one book. This is so that those of you who have not read Orange Petals In a Storm may do so as the precursor to Exaltation Of A Rose. More on this later.
It will be a busy year! P.s. Hope you like the new cover!
