Ascent

We are turning a new corner here at CardCastles and would like you to join us.

Plans are in the works for quite a few changes in the upcoming months. We will no longer be doing our regular #SleepySundays posts for the remainder or the year.

We are also unsure if we will be resurrecting #31Nightmares for this upcoming October. This will depend largely on community demand.

These pauses are for good reason. We are working on something much bigger as a team here at home for the future of our business, Snapping Turtle, that has been playing a larger role here these past few years.

I am also individually working on three book-related projects the rest of this summer, and likely into the fall.

We will certainly miss the old traditions for a while, but times, they are a-changin’ —and with it, so are we.

Updates will come as these changes go into effect. We thank you for your continued support. Keep an eye on our social media accounts for news about upcoming diaries and anything else as we near the end of this summer.

Franki Love

Franki Love is an extremely talented singer/songwriter that I’ve been following for some time now. I certainly have to mention that she is one of the most positive, warm, and loving people I’ve come to know on Twitter. She has a unique charm about her that you’ll notice right away.

~This has been another~

The Information Broker

Well darlings,

I’m excited to reveal to you another collaboration with my two favorite authors!

The Information Broker, the sequel to The Erratic Sun

is my third cover artwork for a book or novel that is available for purchase on Amazon.

[Click to purchase on Amazon for Kindle or paperback!]
My dear friends Matt “Matticus” Blashill & Micheal “Revis” Hansen have worked very hard to give you another beautiful installment to this story. For those that enjoyed The Erratic Sun, I highly recommend this sequel.

If you aren’t familiar with either, I suggest giving The Erratic Sun a spin.

& If you’re into the fantasy genre, check out The Seven Sceptres as well. (Also available right here at CardCastles by clicking on the book in the sidebar.)

Happy reading!

Come back & let me know what you think!!

Sleepy Sundays: Recap

Hello, my darlings,

–This Sunday we’re going to do something a little different.

As much as I would’ve liked to share some new artwork with you this weekend, my ongoing health issues have been acting up the last few days & it’s left me with a series of nasty migraines that have been hindering my ability to concentrate.

I don’t want any of you to worry. I’m getting the best possible care I can get and have been showing some signs of improvement lately.

So with all that said & out of the way,

I’d simply like to recap/re-share my last 2 posts on here within our little Sleepy Sundays timeframe.

Have a pleasant Sunday night

Sleepy Sundays: A Glow in Your Eyes

A Glow in Your Eyes ©️ 2019 Snapping Turtle Arts | cardcastlesinthesky.com

This weekend we are both happy and grateful since our son is finished with his school year. He has made so much progress and completed so many of his goals this year. He is an inspiration to us sometimes just as much as our family is to him.

Despite our hardships, I am grateful we can continue this business & I can keep designing. I love this little family we created and the larger ones outside of this one, and of course the one I came from.

This design is a background for future projects, but for now I’m still adding it to the gallery as wall art.

Have a serene Sunday ❤️
