The Matching Journey of the Hero & Author

Cover Art by Jason Pedersen Cover Art by Jason Pedersen

Thank you to Ionia for letting me announce that the first book of my fantasy series, Legends of Windemere: Beginning of a Hero, will be marked down to free.  It’s been a long ride with this volume since I first published it in early 2013.  Prior to that, I started working on it in late 1998 and now I just feel old.  So, what do I want to talk about here?

Looking back, I can see how Luke Callindor and I have changed.  Neither of us had much of an idea of what we were doing.  He stumbled into the path of a demonic assassin and the Lich while I tripped into the world of self-publishing.  Our flaws were certainly different with him being the more confident of the two and me being a lot more cautious.  Odd how Luke and I don’t really…

I love my pink giraffe

J and I Publishing

Color books are a wonderful thing. Granted, in the beginning when I heard about adult color books, I really thought that was something XXX that I wanted no part of. But as the craze grew, I went from thinking that it was some porn form I should be afraid of, to thinking “Who on earth over the age of ten has time for coloring?” The answer, it turned out, was me.

It doesn’t matter how busy you are. If you can take ten minutes to drink a cup of tea or coffee or check your Facebook status, then you can take the time to color and create a meditation moment to relax yourself through coloring.

One of the beauties of colors books, is that you can have full control to make the pictures your own. Whereas we don’t have control over many other things in our life, when you pick…

Thank you Wendell for helping to promote Legends of Windemere: Beginning of a Hero, which will now be available for free. Looking back at the first book of my series, I’ve beginningofaheropicked up on how it’s become darker. Yet there’s still some humor in there to prevent things from going entirely over the edge.

When Luke Callindor’s adventures started, he would stumble into comical situations and there was a joking comradery with his friends. This was definitely a lighthearted YA romp full of action and amusement. Beginning of a Hero had some emotional and semi-dark events, which usually involved the Lich or the Hellfire Elf. Still, even the bad guys had the occasional moment of levity. The book was definitely a different beast than the later ones.

I’m not sure when things changed so much, but I’m pretty sure it can be blamed on a certain villain showing up in…

Where Do You like to Color?

J and I Publishing

So, here at J and I Publishing we have been pondering recently a question of extreme importance. One of the last truly deep, spiritual, mystical questions left in the universe. Where is it that people like to color the books that we release?

So we decided to ask you.

Do you like to color at home in the sun room, in bed, snuggled up on the sofa, up at the table, out back on the deck, at the beach?

Personally I rather enjoy taking a pack of pens and a book to the park on a nice sunny day and coloring outside.

But what about you? Where do you like to color?

Why not let us know in the comments.
