It’s Here!!!!

Some of you have inquired about my book series; it is Called The Dragon Birthmark Series. I write middle-grade fantasy fiction that has a strong family thread. Book One is called The Dragon Birthmark: World in the Shadows published in September 2012 and Book Two is called Threats of Tartarus, which is out now. They are available on Amazon.com you can either search Jennifer Phillips Russo or the titles themselves. I have included a link to Book One for you and thank you so much for supporting my journey. I would love to hear what you think.

About The Author

Book Two of the Dragon Birthmark Series, Threats of Tartarus, continues our journey with The Adrastai warriors. Author Jennifer Phillips Russo held a student artwork contest for her second book of “The Dragon Birthmark” series. This challenge promoted visual literacy and confidence, as well as provided student artists with the opportunity to have their personal artwork published at no cost to them, if chosen.

“Threats of Tartarus”, Book Two of “The Dragon Birthmark Series, follows the story of an 11-year-old boy’s journey to self-identity through a fantastic adventure, speckled with legend and lore, and offering a few great lessons and themes throughout the story.  “‘The Dragon Birthmark: World in the Shadows’ is an entertaining, thought-provoking book that takes the reader into the world of imagination and fantasy through the eyes of an 11-year-old boy,” said Amy Piper, Fredonia Elementary School Principal.

Russo, a local resident of Fredonia, possesses an insatiable desire to spark imagination and creativity in her readers, she created the art contest for students across the state and nation.  She believes that imagination sparks innovation, and our world could use some innovative thinkers.  This contest provided the opportunity to sketch characters or scenes from the second book, which the chosen winners are featured and published in this book. All middle and high school students were eligible to enter the contest.

Students were able to submit their artwork pieces through the novel’s website. An online gallery is also available through the website, which gave contestants the chance to see examples of artwork that other students have created and submitted. A description of the characters to be sketched was provided at http://www.TheDragonBirthmark.com, as well as detailed rules and entry guidelines for this free contest.

Exhaustion and Bliss

That moment, when you’ve dotted the last ‘i’, crossed the last ‘t’, and typed the last period…A long laborious process that leaves you drained; you slump back into your chair and a smile grows across your face.  You’ve done it…again.  Such a feeling of exhaustion and bliss dueling existence inside your head; it is time to publish Book Two.

My Happy Place :)

Amagansett MorningI can look at this all day and remember the free feeling I had.  I can smell the air and feel the salt on my skin.  I can hear the waves crash and simply breathe easier looking off into the horizon.  Anything is possible when the water speaks to me.  Enjoy your day. 🙂 Exhale.

Namaste,
Jennifer
