Books, Illustrations, and Vampires…

Flamedancercover2sm8I am completing the first books in my fantasy fiction series,” FLAMEDANCER.” Now wondering, should I include illustrations…even just a few …? Being an artist, many people are requesting them…..and I too, am so wanting to create magical visions- books  full of fantasy images,but the writing has me fully immersed… I am torn… I feel they add so much… but it is so much more challenging to lay out books with images… and costly as well… should I remain digital, or plan to design them for print…?

Blue Velvet …

tashablue3Body and soul , together they walked by the sea …with their  imaginary Winged Horses ….who never left their side ….and their world glowed golden, and copper with the gleam of blue velvet …


Serenade in Blue …

TashaDSeranadeGGs bluHe started to serenade her , and as he sang every word that came out of his mouth began to turn the world blue . She did bot really know why , but she suspected … She had suspected all along … but only the doves knew the truth … and they would never tell … She sat and wondered how the other colors felt .. So sad to be excluded … but then again , would one really choose to want to live in a world where there was no other color … or no  – clarity … a world where everything was vague … and where words could only speak in one tone – the color he wanted every one to believe was the one and only truth … the one and only tone … Yet words have so many shades and nuances , not to mention colors …She could let the blue take over , and see the world just as he was singing it to be .. lose herself in the mirage …  believe it .. or keep her vision clear .. and see into the future .., by not believing just what she wanted to hear … end refusing to see the world as only painted in shades of misty blue …Vampires could  be so very persuasive …and so very seductive .. when they wanted something .; and what they usually wanted was … blood .

The ways of a Vampire … infinite charm for ultimate gain …  but only for the common ,the unevolved ; those who feasted on the blood of their innocent and unsuspecting victims who did not realize that were giving their life for their lovers … The others understood … and lived with their honor as their code … leaving the others to feast , to deceive , and take more than they  gave …Always a choice … which side to serve …He continued to play , and  the guitar began to sing …. a a serenade in blue ….

Her petals unfurled .

ImageBlinded by the light , she became it . Pulsating through her , every cell electric .Her body was flying . No longer a body , but a being of light .  One with starlight , she sailed forth , free like a song that was on its’ way to Heaven …

Sensitive to variations of energy perceived as colour and light …vaulting through time , space and into a realm of what she perceived as Heaven all her senses became electrified .

” I am the Aurora Borealis ,  kissing the Morning Star ,  ”  she thought to herself , feeling her spirit expand , getting wider , and wider , brighter and brighter .

She was made up of starlight .

Her heart was music … opening like a thousand petalled Lotus in the throes of cosmic love … She melted into it …
