So proud to announce that the electronic version of Ten Fingers Touching just won the Benjamin Franklin Silver Digital Award for exceptional content, design and use of technology. The book received high ratings not only for the story but also for aesthetics, user engagement, graphics and downloading speed!
This award makes me happy because I wanted to write an engaging story and also create a work of art. The aesthetics of the book were very important. John Blumen, the illustrator, ensured that the beautiful images would easily adapt to all electronic and print platforms.
When searching for an illustrator, I was immediately attracted to Blumen’s exquisite portfolio. His illustrations, in the style of magical realism, were perfect for a fairy tale. Each image created for Ten Fingers Touching adds depth to the story and further draws the reader into a timeless world of fantasy and imagination.
As one blogger wrote, “Come for the illustrations, stay for the story, and leave with another couple of which to remark upon the next time you think of ‘great loves.’”
I’ve also created a delightful PowerPoint presentation on fairy tales that is both substantive and entertaining. To schedule a speaking engagement on Finding your Happily Ever After: Lessons Learned from Fairy Tales, visit my contact page.
