The Dragon Hearts RPG Halloween/Samhain seasonal challenge is live

Samhain or Halloween is here. The leaves fall and crunch below feet after blazing in glory. The nights are filled with even more magic. Not all is quite right in Rhiana though and the air does not carry the usual smells. What's going on? Is is safe to take the hatchlings out? Find out here:

Dragon Hearts is a text based role playing game that I particularly enjoy writing the seasonal and permanent challenges and quests for. When I was brought on board for the challenge and lore writer position the specific requirement set for me was quirky. One does not find many dragon centered games that are silly or quirky.

Mara's Seas: A Selkies' Skins Coloring and Lore Book

 This is not the second book in the Selkies' Skins series that people have been waiting for, but an adjunct to the series.

Mara's Seas: A Selkies' Skins Based Mermay (Mermay2020) Inspired Coloring and Lore Book
Written by Teresa Garcia
Illustrated as Teresa Amehana Garcia

Different covers were needed for different venues.

This is a coloring book and set of short stories wherein the artwork was created during and for the annual Mermay challenge (in this case, Mermay2020) and drawn mostly as a visual expansion to the world in my Selkies' Skins series of novels. I wished to draw mostly non-traditional merfolk. You will find depictions of merfolk both mammalian and fish. The various species of merfolk do not always share our human views of body covering. In my world when they wear clothing it is more for ceremonial reasons. Male, female, and even some that are intersexed because of their type are in these pages. There are tells for those that are more mammalian in type. Certain body parts are not present and the eyes of children have been kept in mind. It is on the order of a National Geographic episode for those that need a comparison. 

This is created more with teens and adults in mind, but there is nothing objectional if one keeps in mind that these are nonhuman entities among the fae. 

Some who know me from my books and short stories will note that an extra name is included. I write under Teresa Garcia and illustrate under Teresa Amehana Garcia. If you wish to know more about the world of Selkies’ Skins then Selkies’ Skins: Castle and Well is the first book of Kirsty’s skinquest. There are several side and short stories as well as a prequel available. The second book of that series is currently in progress. The other series available and which crosses over in places are my Dragon Shaman books. At some future point I hope to finally have The Shadow Chronicles ready to join these.

I hope you enjoy coloring these 32 coloring spaces and reading the explanations and stories that accompany them. Size is 5.5 by 8.5 inches.
