New Cover

I did it for me :-)

I wanted to change the cover, and this image always felt so right to me. The first dream I had about this story involved a girl flying a giant bird. This drawing by Andy Simmons captures the feel of the "Crystilleries of Echoland". It is a children's fantasy with a complex plot, whose theme is woven into everything.

Here's a glimpse of the old cover. As you can see, they are very different indeed.

Forever Here: Poems for Paintings, Number 1

~ My poem, dedicated to Forever Here, by Danielle Richard ~ 

I was inspired to write a poem for the painting, under my pen name, E. L. Neve (award-winning romance author). ~ 

I then composed music on Apple's Garage Band and recorded the poem under my real name, Tal Boldo. You can see more of Ms. Richard's art at
