Here's what Creative Friends of KaCSFFS are doing!

Rachael Mayo, our local dragon-drawing phenomenon, is delighted to finally be able to announce that her new coloring book Dragon Adventure is now available from Kaliedoscopia, via Amazon

"We'd been waiting on the 'look inside' feature to become available so people could see the drawings," she explained. "It's fully functional now!"

Adult coloring books are the new stress-management trend. What better book to choose, for the lover of SF and fantasy, than Rachael's intricate and gorgeous drawings? See lots more of Rachael's artwork on DeviantArt

Lawrence-based Holly Messinger's soon-to-be published novel The Curse of Jacob Tracy just received an outstanding advance review in Publisher's Weekly. This is a highly promising local writer whose novel will be published in December by Thomas Dunne Books (NOTE: before the end of 2015. Thus it is Hugo-eligible and Campbell-eligible for MidAmericon II!). 

Read the review (and pre-order) with this convenient link! Or better yet, pre-order through your favorite local bookstore!

James K. Burk just signed a contract with WolfSinger Publications for his action-adventure novel The Long Way Home, first in the new Recon 9 Series. It will be published in 2016. Check Creative Corner for further updates!
Author James K. Burk
