Faerie Magazine Submits Review Blurb for Where Would You Fly

December 13 2017:

My heart is smiling really big and my eyes pooled with sweat …. xoxoxo ….

“Although all of us who love fairies understand that children, with their vivid imaginations, are closer to magic than any of us, we all yearn to retain that childlike sense of wonder. Lillian Darnell’s writings are a welcome reminder of what is possible when you dream big, and accept no limitations.” – Grace Nuth, Senior Editor – Faerie Magazine

Bar code Graphic – Closer and Closer – Where Would You Fly

December 10 2017:

Another step done!! Bar code and graphic purchased and generated. There are a massive amount of steps to this entire process. Some of which can be skipped to get it done more quickly.

Yet, I prefer to take all of the same steps, fill out all the forms, and do as much as possible as if this was being published by one of the big dawgs! Loving Kindness Books may be a small team of three (Team TLC) but we sure don’t have to look like it! Onward!!! xoxo

Lillian in Sun Fall Break 2015

Here’s the back of book blurb:

Welcome to the radiant imagination of Lillian Darnell, a wonderful and unique human being, the kind who comes around only once in every 56,000 births, as she is missing the short arm of her 18th chromosome.

Leave this reality behind and enter enchanted lands awash in mysteries, happy endings, adventures, and inspiration. Come within and discover heartwarming and beautiful tales, woven with love and magic, brought forth from the imagination of a young woman with a different perspective. Lose yourself in wondrous adventures as you follow courageous, enchanting characters, kind animals and plant life, and graceful Mother Nature.

The delightful tales, legends, and poems within these pages were written by Lillian Darnell between the ages of four and fifteen. The stories and poems are mostly edited for spelling and grammar, yet the bulk of the stories remain as she originally wrote and published them to include a few grammatical errors and made up words.

Will a girls dream of becoming a princess come true?

What does love have to do with rainbows and why do we sometimes see double rainbows?

What do roses have to do with fairies and why don’t we see fairies during the day?

How can sad, mischievous, fearful animals help humans feel emotions?

How did the world come to have color?

What really happens in a day of the life of a young whale who lives in the Wooden Ocean?

Why should you never sleep with bears?

“You can’t help but feel happy and be inspired while reading this book. Lillian’s stories jump straight out of her heart and onto the pages in an authentic, innocent, and loving way. The world needs more positivity and happiness and her stories are bursting with both. Thank you Lillian!” -G. Brian Benson – Award-winning and best-selling author, actor and TEDx speaker.

“Let your imagination be taken away with Lillian Darnell’s writings and allow yourself to be transported to places where anything is possible with love, joy and a touch of inspiration. This collection is born from a young woman with a unique perspective on how our world could be – immerse yourself and come, see the world through Lillian’s eyes.” -Dr Veronica Wain – Award winning filmmaker, Academic, Author, Disability Advocate

Pushing the Cart and Pulling Holds – Volunteering at the Library

November 16 2017:

There she is …. On our way to pull holds! She has taken over pushing the cart. Oh, and see the art gallery in the background? That’s where Team TLC will have our family art showing in spring 2018.

Thomas will have photos from Biggest Little Photographer, Lillian will have her artwork, and I’ll have perhaps my photos paired with poetry.
