Book II of Phillip's Quest is coming this fall! Above The Stars follows gnome Phillip Tuber, his friends Edward the squirrel, and dinosaur Ava Dreamspinner, as they journey above the stars.
The greedy Red Witch, and her horrible henchman goblin Razorsnoot, are up to their old tricks! But hardy gnome Phillip and his unlikely friends won't be stopped on his quest. He'll find out what befell his brother when he embarked on a dangerous quest of his own, no matter who tries to stand in his way.
I'd love it if you came to see me in person at the 2014 Fall For The Book!
We can chat all about Phillip and the surprising new friends he meets on his journey... like Llamont!
I was inspired by the art of Dean Kuhta - and by the worlds in the books I loved to read when I was an educator: C.S. Lewis's Narnia; JRR Tolkein's Middle Earth; and of course, Carroll's Wonderland.
This campaign is a great opportunity to preorder your copy of Above The Stars! If you haven't had the chance to read it yet, you can go back to the beginning with Winterfrost. Or, even better: go for the whole trilogy, and you'll also get VIP access to Book III of Phillip's Quest, Across The Elusive Sea, coming in 2015!
Great Italian food is a passion of mine. And no one loves to eat like Phillip - especially those great forest recipes found at the back of each Phillip's Quest book. Buon gusto!
Jewelry is a passion of mine. I've enjoyed working with other jewelers and creating my own pieces, inspired by Phillip's Quest. I'm thrilled to make three original works available here on Kickstarter.
You can visit jewelry artisan Ellen at Ethora.
And, a truly special opportunity to own an original piece of the world of Winterfrost: original artwork of charming characters Ava Dreamspinner and Oli Warrior Squirrel.
You can visit artist Louise Goodchild at Louise Goodchild Designs.
If you're still getting to know Phillip the Gnome and the world of Winterfrost, sit back in a comfy chair with a tasty beverage, and enjoy!

Risks and challenges
Like any creative project, publishing Above The Stars will take a team. There's always the risk that someone is unavailable - or there is some technology glitch. But I can assure you Book II: Above The Stars is coming!Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
