Yup, pixie #2 in my Cornish Pixies of Whitinsville series had an even shorter skirt where you could see her underwear. The underwear was skimpy and not (ahem) ‘full coverage’. Not quite appropriate for my young-teen audience.
I printed the image on watercolor paper and painted on a skirt. Then scanned it back into my computer. I then added some photoshop touches.
I’m finalizing the cover of my Cordelia book set in Whitinsville, MA. I began with a purchased image and am editing the skirt to make it longer.
Which do you think – left or right? Any other suggestions?
Further refinements on the upcoming cover for my new pixie in Whitinsville short story series. The dark skirt has gentler stars now and the white over-dress lays more visibly over the top of it. Thoughts?
This story should be going live soon, now that I am fixing the cover! 🙂 Her skirt was originally just a wee bit too short for my comfort levels.
What are you guys working on?
Our Summer Solstice issue celebrates all that is beautiful about this precious home we share. In poetry, words, and images we treasure the glittering reflection of moonlight on a lake. A rippling silent sea of grass. The elusive scent of roses. Rippled clouds in a blue sky. Delicate butterflies exploring blossoms. A brilliant rainbow.

Dark Star Rising is a stunning occult thriller of horror and diabolism and of darkness and light.
The innocent, blonde, and beautiful Diana leJeune is completely unaware of her unique destiny. For the past five-hundred years, the forces of evil have been engaged in a ruthless breeding program to create a woman who can breed with Satan and give birth to the Antichrist, thereby ushering in a new, Satanic world order. Diana is the result of this diabolical program. After her adoptive parents die in a freak motor vehicle accident, Diana’s life begins to change. Only slowly does she begin to realize the sinister and diabolical purpose for which she has been created, guided, and groomed.
Can Diana discover the mystery of her birth, and defeat and foil the diabolical plans for her and her offspring? Will she hold onto the God-ordained light within her heart, or succumb to the ineffable darkness all around her? Mankind’s fate will rest on her decision.

Evening meditation time. So much that we agonize over does not matter in the long run. Let it go. Focus on what truly brings you peace and contentment. We are made of stardust and will return back to it far too quickly. #namaste
