I’m working on designing up a new forest animal art piece set. I think they’ll also compliment my existing punny art. Still messing around with these and the other animals in the collection, but they are getting closer! . . . . . . . #kidslitart #kidslitartists #illustrators #artforkids #nurserydecor #kidsroomdecor #kidsroomart #illustrator #forestanimalart #wisconsininspired #childrensbooks #authorandillustrator #booksforkids #artforkids #wisconsinmade #wisconsinmaker #wisconsinmakers #wisconsinauthor #wisconsinillustrator #forestanimaltheme #wisconsinoutdoors #wisconsininspired

I will be the first to admit that my high school English teacher would be shocked to learn that I am now a published author. Today I was invited to speak with @uweauclaire students in Joel Pace's English course about writing. Everyone has a story to share, but unfortunately, too many people look at a book and think they could never write one. Writing a book is just like restoring a one thousand acre wetland—you don’t restore the whole landscape at once; you restore it one square foot at a time. It is the same with writing. You write a book one word at a time. #booktalk #guestlecture #guestlecturer #collegelecture #englishclass #englishcourse #bookreview #bookreviewers #symbolism #writing #writinglife #mysterywriter #authorsofinstagram #wisconsinauthor #writersofinstagram #authorsofig #authorsofinsta #writersofig #authorslife #indieauthor #mysterybooks #mysteryseries #Wisconsin #eauclaire #fallsemester #december #winter #uweauclaire #chippewavalley #honored

I favor writing descriptions of people, places, things... you name it. In this scene from my book, Blue Moon (essentially about a set of identical twin sisters) Valerie, one of the twins, and her husband, Felix have hosted a lavish party. He is admiring Valerie and congratulating himself on having the most beautiful woman in the room as his wife. The morning after the party disaster strikes, and it’s only the beginning of a series of trials the couple will have to face. Will their marriage survive child abduction, sibling betrayal, poor health, and an open door into an affair in the middle of French wine country? #bluemoonjennyknipfer #historicalfiction #historicalfictionnovel #historicalfictionbooks #historicalchristianfiction #identicaltwinsisters #booksabouttwins #booksaboutforgiveness #cleanromance #cleanromancenovels #historicalfictionseries #indieauthorsofinstagram #indieauthormarketing #wisconsinauthor #indieauthor

Today is the release day for Spider Lake. We are so excited to share this next #johncabrelli story with you. It is avaialble from our website feetwetwriting.com or on Kindle (LINK IN BIO). It will be available widely later this month. Here is the final installment of Chapter 1 (if you haven't been following along, start at the beginning of the 10 day countdown!) "That night I was sitting on the dock watching the moon rise over the still mostly frozen lake. The air was the warmest of the year so far, with a whisper of a breeze. The bay had opened up, and I heard the first call of a loon, a haunting sound not only heard but also felt. The loon call came seconds before a sudden chill in the air that swept through me. The kind of chill you sometimes get when the unknown sneaks up on you, taps you on the shoulder, then disappears. Seeing the agent in town and watching him blend into the street once he saw me told me a lot. At that moment I knew that as much as I wanted it to be over, it wasn’t. Uncle Nick had been murdered, and the person or persons who did it may or may not have received their just due. An investigator looking to close cases would call it good and move on to the next dozen waiting, but a good cop turns over every stone and watches what crawls out. There’s a fine line between an obsession with a case and keeping the door open. Many cops obsessed with cases take them to the grave—the case that was never solved, the one that never seemed quite right, the one they screwed up on. Sometimes it controlled the rest of their life. Keeping things in balance was the key—never forgetting, always noticing something new, and being ready if the time ever comes." #instabooks #bookstagram #booklaunch #mysterywriter #authorsofinstagram #wisconsinauthor #writersofinstagram #authorsofig #authorsofinsta #writersofig #authorslife #indieauthor #mysterybooks #mysteryseries #launchparty #launchingsoon #newrelease #kindle #kindlebooks #newreleases #newreleasebooks

Sitting in my little winter wonderland today and feeling blessed and thankful! I made myself go up and do some end of month bookkeeping. Then I decided to do an inventory check. My coffee must have been extra strong this morning. I made a huge realization today. After my first official year in business, I have sold very near 2000 books and almost 600 greeting cards. This once very simplistic idea of creating stories and art to pass down to my children (and someday grandchildren) has become much more than I first anticipated. I just wanted to take a moment to THANK ALL OF YOU that have embraced my art and stories. From customers, to family members (who work for me for free), and to all of you who share in the joy of my posts and success—THANK YOU! To all my teachers, mentors, and editors who have helped me continuously improve along the way—THANK YOU! To those of you who reach out to me to come read, present, and get kids excited about reading, writing, story telling, and art—THANK YOU! AND in honor of small business Saturday yesterday—another GINORMOUS THANK YOU to the all the businesses who allow me an outlet to share my work + all the businesses who help me accomplish making my work. I feel so blessed to have met and developed friendships with so many of you. It has never been an easy road and has brought many learning curves to conquer and countless sleepless nights, but I love this creative process so darn much! I’ll forever be proud of these crazy projects and the personal growth each one allows. I look forward to the continuous creative craziness and can never thank you all enough for celebrating it!

Today is the last day for the #giveaway and to get Figure Eight for $0.99. However, there are two installments left of Chapter 1 from Spider Lake: "The State Department of Criminal Investigation and the local police figured that Uncle Nick’s murderer was likely one of the dirty cops, and while they couldn’t prove if for sure, they had a pretty good circumstantial case. Officially the case was still open, but in reality it was closed. The community was ready to move on. A popular long-time chief had betrayed their trust. Something like this rips the fabric of a small town and can only be repaired one stitch at a time. A thirty-year police veteran, Len Bork, was appointed as temporary chief and was doing everything he could to put this incident to rest—a tough job indeed. … The dust had begun to settle on the investigation, and soon I was well enough to drive myself around. Traveling to town on my own had once been something I took for granted. This simple event, now restored, was a true pleasure. Almost every day I stopped at Crossroads Coffee to linger over a cup of my favorite brew and read the newspaper. Sometimes ace reporter Bill Presser… would join me. After one such meeting, although my vehicle was parked in front, I left the coffee shop out the back door and cut through the alley to stop at a bookstore. I turned the corner out of the alley and caught the briefest glimpse of someone standing by a covered entryway. Brief glimpse or not, I recognized him. It was one of the stoned-faced federal agents who had interviewed me." • • • To enter: 1. Like this post 2. Follow @jeffnania 3.

We are indebted to all of the independent retailers who have supported this adventure in the last year! Comment below with your favorite #smallbusiness for a chance to win a signed book! Meanwhile, the story continues: "The physical healing was only part of the process. Once I was able, an array of law enforcement agencies jockeyed for position to see who got me first. Federal, state, and local officials all had questions that needed answering. Two local cops—the chief and a patrolman—were dead. A federal agent was missing. What they thought was a hit-and-run accident involving Uncle Nick turned out to be premeditated murder. I gave them what information I had. They started with the dead cops, of course. Each agency looked at it separately, but in the end, all arrived at the same conclusion: I was a victim not a perpetrator. The cops were dirty, and they got what dirty cops deserve—a special spot in hell. "The Feds pushed hard to make sure they had everything I could give them. Several months before my arrival, an undercover agent had gone missing, and they were investigating the possibility that the disappearance happened around Musky Falls. I wish I could have helped them more. A missing federal agent is not something that is taken lightly. The guys who interviewed me were not your run of the mill field agents. While they were dressed in suits, it did little to hide the fact that these were hard men sent here to find one of their own and who would follow the trail wherever it led and would know exactly what to do when they got to the end. I couldn’t help but think I was glad they weren’t after me." • • • #instabooks #bookstagram #booklaunch #mysterywriter #authorsofinstagram #wisconsinauthor #writersofinstagram #authorsofig #authorsofinsta #writersofig #authorslife #indieauthor #mysterybooks #mysteryseries #smallbusinesssaturday #smallbusinessowner #suspensebooks #crimefiction

The story continues with another chance to enter the #giveaway ... Chapter 1 excerpt: "I didn’t say a word for the next fifty miles. While the unusual events we had been through together less than a year earlier caused us to forge a close bond, one that in the normal scheme of things would take years to develop, we barely knew each other. We certainly had not been on intimate terms. In truth, I have trouble accepting help from anyone, although support from friends was exactly what I needed." “Okay, Julie. We’ll try it.” I finally said. "That was months ago. My initial embarrassment was short-lived. Julie was a staunch advocate for my getting better. She was sympathetic but had no tolerance for a simpering wimp. She was considerate and acted with respect while dressing my wounds and helping me get where I needed to go. Even dog tired after a day teaching middle schoolers, she still had a smile and a word of encouragement for me. I don’t know what I would have done without her. "Eventually, the dressings were no longer needed, and I could shower and do most things without assistance. Legs that seemed like they could never carry me again got stronger. Walking became a passion. I focused on getting better, and anything that got me going in that direction was what I was going to do. "Julie proved to be a great companion, and her cousin, Arvid Treetall, was a frequent guest.… He was a much in demand handyman whose good nature was infectious, and being with Bud required frequent laughter." • • • To enter: 1.
