Hello, everyone

Well, we finished our last signing of the year at the Barnes and Noble store in Denton, Texas.
Our crowd was small, but we had quality people! Seriously, we enjoyed speaking with everyone there.
How are you, Robert? Writing that story yet???

We'll be at "Career Day" at Liberty school on November 19th from ten until eleven or so.

Everything's been done for book two, the cover has been agreed on, we're ready to go so hang in there with me for "The Haunting of Candlewood!"

By the way, I finished writing book three, "Candlewood; The Legend of the Dragon Sword," and I can't wait to share it with all of you!

Remember, "For God, King and Candlewood!"

Candlewood in Denton, Texas

We met many really great people in Ft Worth at the Barnes and Noble on University St.
Next, on to Denton, Texas on November 10th, noon until ? for fun, games and more Candlewood! The store is in Golden Triangle Mall.

Come on down and meet Tom and I as well as fellow author, Barbara Newton.
We've picked a cover for "The Haunting of Candlewood," so we're well on our way now.
It'll be out before Christmas so if you liked the first book, ask Santa for book two!

The Legend of the Dragon Sword is nearly written. It's blowing me away with it's twists and turns so stay tuned.

Abilene Book Festival

Hi, everyone

Tom and I met some wonderful people last Saturday at the Barnes and Noble in Arlington.
Our wonderful CR manager, Drew, was very gracious and kind, as were all the staff and we sold out of books!
Drew is ordering more, so if you didn't get yours that day, come on back, they'll be there.
Next up is the Abilene book festival on Sep. 29th, from 9am to 3pm and Candlewood will be there next to the WordWright table.
Come and meet me and my mom/partner in writing, Barbara Newton. She's got a mystery out soon, so stay tuned for that.
"The Haunting of Candlewood" really is coming soon. I hope (and am pretty sure) it'll be out before Halloween. Kind of appropriate, isn't it?
Hope to see you all there or at our other appearances at various Barnes and Noble stores.
(Or Hastings or???)
See you all soon and remember, "For God, King and Candlewood!"

Ready for school

Hi, everyone

Is everyone ready for school? My neices and nephews have different answers to that question.
My husband is a student and he says he's not ready. My son isn't ready either, but to tell the truth, I'm ready for them to go back!
As for me, I've written something about my black lab, Rainey, and it's off with Guidepost magazine now. We'll see what happens. And I'm going to do some more visiting in Candlewood today on book three.
I'll also be getting ready for readings in schools and that's my favorite thing to do.
(Besides writing, that is.)
Hope everyone had a great summer and a wonderful school year.
See you all at upcoming signings, I hope!

The Legend of the Dragon Sword

Hi, all

Well, book two, The Haunting of Candlewood, is still in the works BUT we should see a cover soon! Once we see that, it won't be long.
Hope you all can attend the Abilene Book and Music festival. They'll be all kinds of entertainment, workshops, music and best of all, I'll be there ready to autograph your copy of Candlewood!
The festival is at the Ablilene Civic center in Abilene, Texas. Should be a lot of fun so come on down.
The Legend of the Dragon Sword has taken some twists that made even me gasp, so stay tuned.
We're almost 28 chapters complete and book four, as yet untitled, is taking form as well.
Stay cool this summer, if you can. We here in Ft Worth are sweltering but it's NORMAL for us this time of year!
Talk to you soon, all and remember, "For God, King, and Candlewood!"

Candlewood at Scarborough Festival

We had a great time at Scarborough (Fair) Festival Sunday and made a few contacts for Candlewood, too.
Met a great puppeteer who makes dragon puppets. I have a great surprise for the school kids this fall! I can hardly wait.
Making last minute edits to "The Haunting of Candlewood," so hopefully, it won't be long now.
Check my calender for events and times, I'm trying to keep up.
Let me know what you think by leaving me a message, okay?
Thanks and remember, "For God, King and Candlewood!"
We won't be in Dallas after all this weekend, but we will be there in June, so stayed tuned for the time.

"Creating Candlewood" will still be at the Lakewood Library in Dallas from 1:00 to 3:00, as planned.

Just finished chapter 23 of "The Legend of the Dragon Sword," and it's going pretty quickly now, after a small "bump" of not knowing where the story was going.

It always takes care of itself so no worries!
Hello, Candlewood fans!

I just got back from "Books, authors and all that jazz," in Weatherford, Texas and met some new fans there. We had a lot of fun.

I'm going to Dallas this next Saturday, to the Lakewood Library and will give a presentation called, "Creating Candlewood."

"The Legend of the Dragon Sword" is going strong with 23 chapters finished so stay tuned and keep checking the website for the release of "The Haunting of Candlewood!"

I'll be updating my calender, too, so you can come and join the fun.

Hope to see you soon and let me know what you think about "Candlewood!"

Candlewood Books Updates

Part two of our story is with the publisher now so hang on for more adventures with the Candlewood kids, and thier dragons.

The Haunting of Candlewood follows our favorite characters as they grow a bit older and have even more adventures than before.

I'll let you all know when book two comes out!

In the meantime, I'm still working on "The Legend of the Dragon Sword," which is part three and to me, the very best part of the story of Candlewood.

We were at Round Rock, Texas yesterday at the Barnes and Noble store and had a ball.
Look at my calendar to see where we'll be next and if you want to invite us,
drop us a line and we'll see what we can do about coming to your town!

"For God, King and Candlewood!"

Ellen's Favorite Quote

My favorite quote, besides "I don't think so, Scooter," is

Fear knocked,
Faith answered,
No one was there.

Book 2 - "The Haunting Of candlewood"

Candlewood continues to fly well, reaching other countries, like England and Germany, as well!

Book two, "The Haunting of Candlewood," is on the editors desk and being re-read right now, so hopefully, the second part of our story will be out in early 2007!

I'm working on the third book, "Candlewood: The Legend of the Dragon Sword," and our characters are having even more adventures as they grow.

Princess Lacey has quite a surprise for her fans!
