Tunes and Tales

I’m very excited with all the wonderful avenues I’ve been allowed to share and celebrate my new book! On Wednesday, I spent the day in Fort Collins, Colorado recording Tunes and Tales with show host Kristen Olsen and Jonathan Bennett!

ALIANA REACHES FOR THE MOON 🌙

Book Birthday 2/19/2019

ALIANA REACHES FOR THE MOON is out today!

Here are the countdown illustrations from the past two weeks.

I hope you want to buy this book for the children in your life or for a gift if you don’t have children.

It’s also helpful if you ask your library to buy the book so that many readers can have access to it.

And reviews online (Amazon, Goodreads) make an important difference for new books.

Super Wolf Blood Moon

Just like an infomercial where they say, “But wait, there’s more!”

Sunday night I was thrilled to watch the lunar eclipse from my balcony. The skies were clear and it was magical seeing it and recording it photographically.

After capturing the last pictures I posted yesterday, I went inside to warm up. Then, I went back out to see the blood moon and got these shots. Unfiltered, the moon looks more purple than red.

Lunar eclipse photos from my balcony in the Rocky Mountains. I was fortunate to have a clear evening sky.

These photos were taken approximately every 5 minutes.

Solstice and the (almost) full moon

As the shortest day of the year turns from daylight to darkness, the moon rises.

This beautiful gibbous moon, just one day shy of a full moon, brightens the night. This was the inspiration for Aliana Reaches for the Moon.

Look for more photos of the moon tomorrow.
