I have launched a Kickstarter campaign in order to help me illustrate, format and print my latest book, "Return of the Mirms."  It is the sequel to "The Adventures of the Salamander," a series of stories I wrote and self published back in 2012.  The stories are unique because younger kids can enjoy them thanks to the easy to read captions which appear under every illustration, which tell the story in a simplified manner.  Older children and adults can read the main text, and get all the details that are not present in the captions, and there are even detailed maps, footnotes and several appendices for those inclined to research. 

Return of the Mirms will be formatted the same way, so I'm excited about having the opportunity to work on it.  I hope you'll check out the project and share it with anyone you think will be interested.

Hello...

A new group has started its journey in DeviantArt ... The group is called :icontraditional-masters: Traditional-Masters and is a group for traditional artists who want to publicize their works and know the works of other traditional artists .. 
At the moment we are very few because it has just opened the group, but without a doubt we will grow and we will form a great community ... It would be an honor to have your presence in the group ... If you are interested, please sign up and you will be welcome...

Regards ... Hi! :icontraditional-masters:
