Cover reveal…Mystery, Mayhem & Magic

MMM cover

The Ten Penners meeting today was another productive one.

We heard the last of the Kai stories by Kate Russell. These tales are sure to have kids enjoying the rib tickling antics of this young man!

We had a professional headshot taken with a proper camera and discussed upcoming promotion of the new book Mystery, Mayhem & Magic.

And now, drum roll….. The Cover Reveal!! Thanks to Starla Martineer for the cover design and photography!

The Ten Penners meeting today!

ten-penners-feb-17-full-picWe had a very inspirational meeting today!

I loved the new stories, poems and series ideas. Now we just need to get our thinking caps on to come up with a perfect title for our new anthology.

The suggestions so far are:

Adventures, Hazards & Perils! (to follow on from the Shock, Horror, Gasp and Fan-tas-tic-al Tales – three-word play)

Magic Tales, Epic Stories, & Awesome Adventures    Or        Awesome Adventures

What do you think? We’d appreciate suggestions!
