The Heart Stone Chronicles has a New Look

I’m thrilled to share the new cover for The Heart Stone Chronicles created by my dear friend and Sister of the Fey, Wendy Anne Darling.  We decided that Abby Forester needed the place of honor on the cover, as this is the story of her journey into the realm of the Swamp Fairy.

Fourteen-year-old Abigale Forester, recently orphaned and a ward of the State of Illinois moves from Chicago to Florida to live with her aunt, her last living relative. Magnolia Forester becomes her legal Guardian, and together they claim an ancient inheritance; land that belonged to Abby’s mother’s family for generations.

Holding onto the only piece of her mother Abby has left, a calcite pendant and her mother’s most sacred possession, she discovers the truth of her legacy. The pendant is more significant than she could imagine. Forged from a giant mystical heart-shaped stone found on the very swamp land Abby now owns, it holds the power of her ancestors.

But with that power comes greater responsibility, one that pits her against Rafe Cobb, a greedy land developer, who will stop at nothing to own Abby’s swampland.

As Abby learns to be part of a family again the swamp slowly gives up some of its secrets. She is summoned by a primeval nymph, who teaches Abby that her true destiny is to protect the nymphs from evil in an ever-changing world.

Can Abby save the swamp and the Naiad Nymph Clan from certain destruction before it is too late?

    1. Thank you. We’ve talked about changing it for a bit. I guess when you start out you don’t really know what you are doing. I’m learning by the seat of my pants. LOL! 😀

        1. That book morphed quite a few times. I know now, so I won’t repeat the mistake. Abby should have been on the cover from the start. 😀 ❤


    1. Thanks, Merril. Abby is 14 in this book, but very adult. I have a photo of one my granddaughters who looks very close to this. 😀

        1. I agree. When I first published I was still learning. (Still am). Thanks for your support. So much of this I do on my own. It’s good to know you’re on the right track. ❤️
