Famlaer the Real Faeryland Re-Released

I know it’s been a while, but I have been passionately working on a second edition of Famlaer the Real Faeryland and a second book in the series called Famlaer a New Home in an Old Land. I have just released the second edition, which has larger illustrations and a few extra descriptions. This first book is mainly a description of the faeries and the land they live in.

The next book, which will be out before the end of the year, is a story with lots of adventure as they travel to find their new home.

You can find Famlaer on Amazon in paperback and digital forms.

Here is an excerpt from Famlaer – The Real Faeryland. I hope you enjoy this and will buy the book to see more of the faery life.

Famlaer - The Real Faeryland

Traefotolp – The Garden Faery















Famlaer – The real faeryland, another sneak-peak.

Famlaer is a book about faeries. It’s mainly introducing the community and how they are created. It is more description than story at this point. My next book will be more story-like but still lots of introduction and descriptions of faeries not mentioned in the first book.   

In the meantime, I’d like you to meet Naldoow, the forest keeper. He is one of my favourite drawings. I thought it would be fun to make a faery look like an old hippy rocker. He is just one of many fun and unusual characters in Famlaer – The real faeryland.

This little fellow is the oldest looking of all the faeries. They are always male, they live to be 98 years old, and there are at least five around at all times. They live in the trees, making them the highest flyers of the whole of Faeryland. They fly to the tops of the tallest trees, acting a little like a scout watching for problems. The forest keeper has an overly humungous head but sports a small body, hands and feet. Quite out of proportion. Although he looks old, he’s actually one of the most energetic faeries. They always have a scowl on their face but have a wonderful sense of humour and for the most part, are quite happy. He resembles what we call a hippy from the sixties.


Famlaer paperback is available on Amazon.com for $9.95 US, $13.20 CA as well as UK, DE, FR, ES, IT AND JP. If you would rather read a digital copy it’s available for $4.98 US on all the same as above plus NL, CA, MX, AU AND IN. (the digital version is not available in mobi or epub, but can be read on your phone, tablet or computer using free readers that can be downloaded through Amazon or your mobile market)

Happy reading everyone.

To friends, family and followers, please share this link or search my book on Amazon and of course buying and giving it a favourable review would help tremendously. I would like to thank you all in advance for your support. It is most appreciated.

Nineteen Sixty Three–A Good Read

For this post I’m going to promote something a little different. Rather than featuring an artist of the graphic kind, I am promoting a writer. I will be right up front with you, this writer happens to by my husband.

Author of Nineteen Sixty Three

His name is A. James Hindle and this is his first novel. Jim as he is known to his friends was born in Edmonton, Alberta, Canada, September 10, 1945. His mother was a school teacher and his father a realtor. Jim is now retired and lives in Nova Scotia with me (his wife) and our dog WiFi. I know what you’re thinking. He’s getting a very late start in writing, and you would be right. It has taken this long to convince him to get started. For the longest time while he was still working 10 hours a day, he always talked about writing a book but there just wasn’t enough time in a day to get going on it.

He often told me of a time in his youth when he and a friend took a road trip down to the states and I always found it to be an interesting story. So much so that I was always having him repeat the story to every new friend we came across.

When Jim finally retired I convinced him to start writing his story and with a lot of embellishment and a few new adventures he wrote a novel called Nineteen Sixty Three. It’s about two young men who take a Volkswagen beetle, a borrowed credit card and a small amount of cash and have a trip they’ll never forget.

After reading the book I found it was even better than when Jim told the stories of what happened on his trip. They come across new friends, possible murder and funny lights in the night, a little jail time and much more. It’s a good book with a good bit of adventure in it. I hope you check it out online at Amazon.ca, Amazon.com(where you can also get it in paperback) and Amazon.uk(I don’t have the link for this one but if you type in Nineteen Sixty Three or A J Hindle you should have no trouble finding the book).

I would also like to urge you to give a review on Amazon good or bad because Jim is starting a new book and it would be helpful in correcting what maybe didn’t work in the first book or keeping what was good.

Happy reading! Enjoy!

Artist of the Month

I discovered a new artist when a Facebook friend posted a piece of her work. I fell in love and just had to feature Jessilyn Park on my blog this month.

Jessilyn currently resides in Orlando, Florida and until two years ago she had never done any painting, artistically speaking anyway. When Jessilyn picked up a paint brush for the first time she discovered a great creative talent. She paints with bright, beautiful colours using broad brush strokes and her works are in great demand. You be the judge. Here are just a few samples of her work. If you’d like to read more about Jessilyn or see more paintings visit Jessilyn Park Art Studio Facebook page or the official web site Jessilyn Park Art Studio.
