October 10 2019:

About to begin round 7 of reading the entire book out loud – from the title page, copyright page, through to the about the author page (for proofreading purposes). Whew! Fingers and toes crossed that this is the last time so I can get it to the book designer tomorrow!

October 12 2019:

Done!! Just submitted ‘Words of Alchemy’ to the book designer! Should be able to order a proof book in about 2 weeks. In celebration I created a word art image with content from the book’s website page. Thanks for the support and interest in pre-ordering!

Thomas and I toasted to me submitting the manuscript to the book designer!! Pumpkin pie spiced ginger ale … (non-alcoholic).

Rainbow Love by Lillian Darnell

RAINBOW LOVE

This story is about rainbows and love. I hope you enjoy!

Once there lived two rainbows who didn’t want to separate for the love of nature. Their names were Candy Rainbow and Princess Rainbow. One day, Candy Rainbow was accidentally separated from Princess. What they didn’t know was that the Nature fairy had split them in half.

Candy desperately looked for Princess but there was no sign of her. Meanwhile, Princess was where Candy wasn’t. She was anxious to find him but the Nature fairy wouldn’t let her. Candy asked the Nature fairy about Princess. The fairy said, “No, I haven’t seen her. I didn’t separate you.”

Candy thought the fairy was being suspicious. Princess started suspecting the fairy. After a year passed, they accidentally ran into each other. When the fairy found out, she was furious.

The fairy decided to put Princess invisible so she couldn’t be seen when they bumped into each other. Candy tried to explain to the Nature fairy that rainbow magic was more powerful than fairy magic. Since the nature fairy wouldn’t listen, Candy decided to show her what he tried to explain.
His plan was to use his magic and power to get Princess out of the invisible world. So when Princess saw he was stretching out to use his power, she decided to reach over and touch his stretched arc. Candy felt lighter somehow but he didn’t know how.

Suddenly the invisible spell broke. The fairy was shocked at what happened and the fairy had to vanish. “It was me who helped you, Candy”, said Princess softly. “Thank you, Princess!” and the rainbows’ love was returned.

Princess thought if people saw them, it would be easier to have one rainbow be invisible. Princess decided to go invisible but Candy was able to see her. Every once in a while, Princess appeared behind Candy. That is why some people see double or triple rainbows.

Featured on The Writer’s Corner: Poetry & Inspiration from Author Camilla Downs

I am so incredibly grateful to Tania Marie for featuring me in her “Writer’s Corner” series.

Her words sang a beautiful love song to my heart and soul … ” …. The connection the three of them have together is one of balancing teaching and leading, with learning and guidance. It has taken them to dark depths and soaring heights together. It is through their devotion and commitment to each other and themselves that they support the blossoming of one another and are spreading love to the world … ” Visit the link to read more … xoxo

Water Dance by Camilla Downs

August 12 2018:

Water Dance

As the suns reflection
Becomes a dancer
Of the water,
She takes by the hand
the one who walks.

She whispers sweet reminders,
To the walkers heart.

She dances elegantly.
She dances of love and grace.
She dances unknown ….
