Heads Up for a Blog Giveaway! Prizes for Everyone!


You may remember
how excited I was to do
my first ever bit of book illustration.?

is now published and it's
 doing very well, thank you.

It's dark, it's funny
and Oliver is a 
wicked charmer.

I've teamed up with the writer.
to celebrate the launch of
his novella, by offering a doll
based on the eponymous anti-hero
for my own giveaway.

Giveaway starts here on
 Friday 16th May.



Here is Oliver, getting fitted 
for his nice white shirt.


My first shirt placket!
My first shirt collar!

I'll be replacing the pins with beads,
for teeny shirt buttons.


And here is Oliver, 
without any trousers on.

I don't think he's 
very happy about it.

The Giveaway starts officially
on 18th May, but  in 
The Narrator's Study

Everyone gets a prize!

A Conversation with Oliver
will be free to download,
 on 18th May.

Don't have a Kindle?
No worries

Amazon has the app for free,
for PC, Mac, smart phones.



Join the conversation, 
read the reviews,
here on Amazon.

    1. Thank you, Magic Love Crow! I'm glad you think he looks cute. I'm hoping he looks even cuter when he finally scores some hair and some trousers!

  11. I'm sure Oliver has no problem being without pants. As long as his gun is handy. I love his shirt!

    1. No pants, nowhere to put his weapon. That's what he wears pants for, to keep his weapon handy. There is no innuendo in this comment. Honest.

  12. Bet his shoes will be shining :)

    1. Of course. What kind of cool, smooth, urbane hit man has scuffed shoes?

  13. This must be so exciting. Have your feet hit the ground yet? I can't believe that's your first shirt. Oliver will be a very stylish fellow, even without pants.

    1. Thank you, Jo! And dear me, yes, this is the first time I've tried to make anything that looks tailored, this small. It's fiddly! At least the model stands nice and still. And now, yes, he has trousers!

  14. I am so excited for you! And to make a male doll to go with the story is exciting too! I hope I remember to come back on May 18th.
    How are you doing, my dear? Sounds like you have been, extra, extra busy, which is awesome!
    hugs,
    Teresa

    1. Thank you so much, Teresa! This has been all kinds of new, as I've not done any illustration and I've made very few male dolls. On the 18th, I'll come and give you a reminder. This is a project I'm thrilled to be involved with.
