This is one my favorite birthday cards
Today has been awesome.
God has been so good to me. I'm alive, happy and optimistic for the future.
At 73, my mom's in the best shape of her life so I am free to finish my creative projects and they are all getting done at the same time.
I am about to release 4 children's books plus a middle school thru adult historical card game and a 3 volume compilation of inspirational quotes by Fall. It's been a long time coming but I'm about to release 7 books in a few weeks. It's fun orchestrating the artwork for the covers and I'm very proud of them, they are beautiful.
Here is a preview of what is to come.
I received a brilliant gift today
I have a dear in friend in Bangladesh, Habibur Rahman. Even though he is 12 hours ahead of me in America, he speak every morning and evening.
He is brilliant artist. I told him this morning that we were celebrating a holiday in America. He asked what it was about and I told him.
At 2 AM his time he called me and said he had a gift for me.
This is what he gave me.
He told me his wish was to one day come to America!
I pray that his dreams come true.
Happy Fourth of July
From my awesome talented friend, my pet-son and myself
I knew from the beginning that I was going to interweave both my adult and children's series. I knew as far back as 20 years ago that I would built a children's and young adult series that would tie into eachothers characters to further tell an astounding story. A few days ago I was given the name of the book and concept of the story for the children's book that further explains how the hero goes from a common puppy to a king and the wealthiest dog in the world.
I always knew that my character, Lantz Manzeneras would be the one who owned Lo Tee Bugg Kai Ling, because he did. But now I know the rest of the story and am able to weave in my lead character from "Supernatural Favor", Benjamin Christian and to have their God given treasure finding abilities to work in tandum in discovering treauries of the ancient world.
... and thus comes the story of "The Making of a King The adventures of Lo Tee Bugg Kai Ling" I have finished about half of it, so today I hope to hammer out the entire story board so I can then develop the artwork, which I am guaranteeing to be amazing.
I so hope you enjoy it as much as I do.

"Reading Lantz's work is like taking a ski lift. As you read, it gently takes you higher and higher, and before you know it you are looking down from the heavens and everything is even more beautiful than ever imagined." Ellendale Kennedy
