August 10, 2021: Lisa's Updates on Books, Illustrations

Tuesday, August 10, 2021, Rochester, Minnesota.

I started Book Five of Valentine's Adventures, Faire Friday a few days ago.

These are 32-page children's books, all of the illustrations are watercolor, watercolor and ink, and watercolor and pencil (depending on the book). 

Valentine "Valley" is an Bow Wow Detective Ambassador for Lisa Loucks-Christenson's Bow Wow Detectives® brand. 

Story Antics® and Story Antics Personalized Books™ are licensed publishers that are releasing personalized books featuring dog names from our list. If you are a publisher and want to license a Bow Wow Detectives® book or product, contact us.

Valentine's Adventures:

Blustery Tuesday!, Book One 

Shipwreck Sunday!, Book Two

Museum Monday!, Book Three

Stowaway Saturday! Book Four

Faire Friday!, Book Five

 

Valentine's Adventures™ features Valentine the Chihuahua, and also an Ambassador for the Bow Wow Detectives® that wears two hearts on her back and another heart inside. Truly, she has sat in my arms through almost every illustration, and that is over 130+ in the past few months for this series.

I should be wrapping up the first seven books in this series by the end of November. Publication will follow. Story Antics Personalized Books™ is publishing the personalized books for some of the titles where consumers can put their Chihuahua's name in place of Valentine.

All the art, loose prints, Photo Traders, and Story Preview Editions™  and merchandise is scheduled for release in the near future. These products are sold exclusively through the stores carrying the Lisa Loucks-Christenson Product Line. Contact the Publisher's for more details.  

  

Goodbye Inktober, Hello NaNoWriMo

Goodbye Inktober, Hello NaNoWriMo

At 1:30 AM on 10/31/2020, I finished my 4th Inktober book, a book I do in ink every day during the month of October. The Hallowinks in the Haunted Carnival, Volume 4; Hallowink Hollow™ Series. 

During the month of October 2020, I created 62 new illustrations for two of my Art Comic series:

31 illustrations for my, Hallowink Hollow™ series, all created in ink

31 illustrations for my, The Courtly Cottontails™ series, I created in pencil. 

In a few minutes, I'm starting my, 11th novel in my Wolves of Whitewater Falls™ series, my supernatural ghost town saga. This years book is titled, Winter Wolves. I never write out any of the story ahead of time, but I have been thinking about a strong opening. I'm hoping to have 65K-72K words completed by November 23, 2020.

This story opens with a scene that took place, for real, when my husband left my store, and within a minute or two, someone tried breaking my back window. It escalated from there, and I'm glad I hit my alarms when I did. I had only one weapon: my camera. I recorded the incident from there on, including his rage, his forcefulness, his hand behind his back. 

The police caught him. He was "familiar" to them. He was a drug user and homeless. After throwing a rock at my first wind

The Tremble Creek Tornado

Book 1, Episode 2

Ebook in (epub, and PDF)

Synopsis

When Mason’s ex-girlfriend, Dixie, returns home eight years after breaking Mason’s heart, she rides through the sunset and into Whitewater Falls—like an out of control tornado—spewing every kind of trouble into her make-shift living quarters alongside Tremble Creek, and in the aftermath of her arrival, she breaks off Annie and Mason’s engagement.

Strange animal sightings, including the capture of a non-native species, a grizzly bear cub, roaming around in Annie’s Eagle Documentary project, leads Annie to the truth, but it doesn’t set her free from her broken heart.

Turning the grizzly cub over her ex-fiancée, Mason, the areas Upper Mississippi Fish & Wildlife Refuge Officer only entangles Annie into Dixie’s animal smuggling ring. Annie must find out where loyalties stand after she uncovers Mason’s ex-girlfriend, Dixie—or at least her cover story—is a few miles short of her claimed Macon County-Dixie Line backstory.

When Annie is forced to make the biggest leap of faith in her life, with the help of White Wolf and Wind Chill, the two wolves who seem to have taken to her, she risks everything she believes, to protect them and the people she loves, in this eye for an eye, soul for a soul, environmental, supernatural ghost town suspense saga.

One thing is for sure: Whitewater Falls may be a small town in southeast Minnesota, but it's never experienced anything like the illegal animal trade, or the trouble that blows in like a Tremble Creek Tornado.

What got you into travel writing?

My dad worked for IBM and brought me with on many of his trips. I loved finding interesting places we could visit at the end of his work day, after I spent the day exploring the oceans, the rivers, the woods, the cities. Our travels took us all over the USA, and now, 20 years since he's left us, I find inspiration while looking back on our adventures.
