I love to sew, and fashion creeps into my books pretty often. Clothing design is a major part of the Salarian Chronicles (and the Fairy Tale Adventures as well). In Rook and Shadow, fashion plays a major part in the story line as Princess Salara deals with the way people view her fairy-enchanted beauty.

The artists in Rook and Shadow are constantly painting portraits of Princess Salara. Sounds like fun, but I'm terrible at drawing. So I commissioned a coloring page so we can make our own!
I've been working on some quote pictures for Rook and Shadow. My original concept was to create digital Valentines Day cards using the poetry from the book, but I couldn't wait to share them!
This deleted scene comes from Chapter 2 of Rook and Shadow. In the original draft, the king pulls Princess Salara out of the opera rehearsal to have a conversation with her before the delegation arrives. I took it out to make the pacing faster, but I enjoy a chance to see the king's character.
