Jumping for Joy SmileyIt is great to have the all new A chance encounter and another little story I am titling Yagan jae and the dreaming girl back from my editor and proofreader. They both informed me they really liked both of them and Kiyoshi informed me the new version of A chance encounter is far better than the last one. This makes me very happy.

The next thing to do is get the covers painted and hopefully next week I will be able to launch them both.

I am still completing a side story which involves Gaylin’s mother, Aponi, helping Junjie’s fifth son Yè fēng to find out why a forest is cursed. It has been a fun story to do as I had to remember both gods are partly sighted, the Dragon is partly blind in his left eye and has to wear an eyepatch because daylight hurts it and the Dreamer has a pupil missing in his right eye which helps to focuses the other two pupils on anything from the other realm, but with it missing all he sees are shadows.

Kyioshi liked this concept, even though they are gods they both have a disability and cannot wait to go through it.
This is my rough drawing of them together and Aponi gettning frustrated over what a god has to do in order to calm a Forest Guardian ^_^

 I am so pleased towards the end of last week I completed the all new A chance encounter, which has since gone to my proofreader and editor to see what they make of it before I publish it. I have also had ago at drawing a cover for it, Junjie and Bǎihé meeting for the first time and to show the difference in hight as you can see Junjie is a lot taller then Bǎihé. 


I have to admit the one thing I am still not abele to get right is the Dragons wings. I can picture them so clearly within my mind, how they fold and unfold, but when it comes to actually to drawing them it is not easy, but I know with a bit of practice and guidance from Kiyoshi I will get them looking great.


Once the drawings are done, the next project that I am going to sort out is Bǎihé and the mystery gifts. I have given it a read through and because it needs a lot doing to it, to make it a better story, I am thinking about rewriting it into chapters. But I will crossthat bridge when I completed the first task getting all the pictures for the prequel to Lǐwú and the teardrop stone, I am pleased to announced I have finally settled on a title, Dampa and the cursed village.I hope it will make people want to read it.
