Crimson Cloak Publishing. A refreshing new voice in the publishing world.

My own involvement in Fairy Tale books began when I was asked to illustrate a book of Fairy stories called The Fairy Folk of Bracken Lea Wood, by Esma Race (now called The Magic World of Bracken Lea Wood). Chapter-heading sketches became more pictures scattered throughout the book, and Carly McCracken at Crimson Cloak Publishing received it via an agent and liked it! http://raceesma.wix.com/esma-race

I’ve since done more cover art and internal pictures, here is one http://crimsoncloakpublishing.com/scary-ghosts-and…

There’s a lovely video for Melissa Harker Ridenour Children’s Books‘ “Scary Ghosts” book which uses my sketches:

Here is my picture of “Horrid Rex”, the naughty puppy who first meets Glodwyn the Gnome and his friends when he runs off and gets lost in Bracken Lea Wood, in the first of The Crimson Cloak Anthologies, which was actually called Glodwyn’s Treasure Chest because the stories were collected as a means of self-publicity for the authors concerned before I joined Crimson Cloak. Carly McCracken liked the idea so much she wanted to continue the series: but many platforms don’t allow permanently free books to be listed, so it was decided to charge for the book and donate the money to charity. You can find Horrid Rex again in Santa’s Little Helpers, the fifth volume of the series, where he accidentally meets Santa Claus!http://crimsoncloakpublishing.com/children-s-christmas…

As I also illustrated Little Bear’s Trial, a charming little story about a young native American boy’s moral education, by Roger Bone, I hope no-one will mind if I mention that here too!http://crimsoncloakpublishing.com/little-bear-s-trial.html
