Event 8/6/16: Yankee Homecoming's Inn Street Artisans Revival!

Yankee Homecoming and Piratess Tilly 2 After the amazing experience I had sharing The Adventures of Piratess Tilly with families over Memorial Day Weekend at the Newburyport Custom House Maritime Museum's Maritime Days, I eagerly signed up for another local festival. I will be selling books and dolls while also passing out complimentary "color-me" postcards on Saturday August 6th from 10am - 5pm on Inn Street in Newburyport, MA at the Inn Street Artisans Revival!

The Inn Street Artisans Revival is a new addition to the week long Yankee Homecoming festival July 30 - August 7th in downtown Newburyport that celebrates our long history. I encourage you to read more about the festival here. This new event will primarily be featuring local artists. I hope to see you there!

 

 

Softcover now available!

Softcover Piratess Tilly Give-away What wonderful timing to share both the latest Amazon Review and the news that a softcover version of The Adventures of Piratess Tilly is now available directly from Amazon and Barnes & Noble!

Review on Amazon:

We LOVE this book! My five year old daughter loves it just as much as my eight year old son. First, I look to read stories with my children that have a strong female lead character. This is an empowering, uplifting and "feel good" story for both girls and boys. Written in Haiku, Tilly and her crew go on exciting adventures together. The watercolor illustrations are beautiful. I can't wait to read further adventures of Tilly and her crew.

Happy Monday!

Plushies Available Now!

Piratess Tilly and Yuki Plushie listing double pic BC I am so excited to announce that the locally handmade Piratess Tilly and Yuki plushies are now available for purchase! I am also looking forward to sharing the process of designing these dolls in a future post, as it was quite the undertaking for someone who doesn't sew. ;)  I am very proud of the dolls and love watching my daughter play with Piratess Tilly and Yuki. It really does take the story to a whole new level when a child can interact with dolls based on the characters.

From the shop:

These adorable variations of the characters, Piratess Tilly and Yuki, bring the story to life in an enchanting, cuddly, hands-on way. They help to encourage exploration and imagination. Whether everyone snuggles up to read a book, go on a family vacation or head out on a backyard expedition; these soft toys are bound to inspire story-telling and creative play. Where will Piratess Tilly, Yuki and your little one adventure to today?!

Check them out here. Thank you!
