The Penance of Borund the Bear is here!

The book is printed and ready for sale! Hooray!

Technically this book is number two in the "Bear Wolf Trilogy" (while "One Step Ahead" is book one), but this new volume is actually a prequel.

Also, after book three (coming next!) I am going to... add a book four. Because I am terrible at planning.

Anyhoo, here's the cover, and if you'd like to grab a copy then head on over to the Indigo Puma website. There you can see details of my books, sample pages and artwork, and the shop.

I'm planning a major rebuild of my website and shop, but in the meantime, you'll have to make do with Gumroad.

The Penance of Borund the Bear... Almost there!

Guess who just got a proof of her new book! Woot!

This is an illustrated short story, ie mostly prose but with 16 pretty illustrations throughout. Although this is book two, it's actually a prequel to "One Step Ahead" -- if you're wondering how Borund the Bear ended up with such a high bounty on his head, then here's the answer!

While all these books are printing, I'll be rebuilding my website and the shop so that you can actually grab a copy. I'll post a link when it's all done.

Illustrating "The Penance of Borund the Bear"

I've been working away steadily on "The Penance of Borund the Bear" and I'm on the final stages for the interior artwork. Half of the images are finished, and the other half are coloured but need lighting details added. In a week or two, I'll work on the cover, and then... Done!

And then I can get started on book three!

Here are two images I recently finished. Borund the Bear is working as a palace guard on night shift so that he can fiddle locks and search rooms without anyone catching him. Unfortunately, he is about the open the WRONG DOOR and then... Things will go wrong.

And below is Duchess Karria, posing as a messenger so that she can escape from...

Well now, that would be telling.

I'm pretty much on track to get this thing finished by April, and then it'll be off to the printers!
