Oops, I got distracted from updating my website by life and other events. I've also been posting most of my updates on my Facebook page - @Author.KimberlyVogel - So pretty much everything for the last two years has been done there. I'm still writing and doing artwork, but the published things are definitely more on the art side as opposed to the book side. I've most recently added coloring books to my products, but they are only available locally so I'll have them with me at the Art Shows and Farmer's Markets. Last year I added pins/badges so I'm hard at work on those too. I've made a selection of book characters and animal art. I'm trying to figure out a new way to make quality magnets so I'm out of stock on those until I can redo them. I'll still have my twelve packs of stickers and my individual note cards for sale too. It won't be long until April when the first of the seasonal events start. I hope to see you all out there!

When Life Throws a Brick at Your Face

Sorry everyone, but I must apologize again for my absence. I lost my main source of income when the store I worked part-time for closed. I'm still dealing with the fallout from that. Good news though, I've applied to four Farmer's Markets for the upcoming season. I hope that I can share more about that later. In the meanwhile I'm keeping busy with networking and further income hunting.

On the book writing front I haven't had the time or energy to complete anything yet. I do have two very short stories from NaNoWriMo completed, but I don't feel that they are at the point where they can be published. I'm either going to edit them to expand the length or convert them into my first fully manga-style works. I'm not sure yet, but in the meanwhile I'm sorry about the wait for new books and artwork. I hope to have something done before the start of Farmer's Market in May, though how long it takes depends on what else happens around me. 


New Books Published

And we have them! Both Normal Thyme & Project Nartana Case Set 2: The South Side Criminals came in the mail this afternoon. It will take 6-8 weeks before they are in the bookstores other than my publisher's ( website. In the meanwhile the e-books are also available. As before, the Nartana bros' cases are available individually as well, but the bundle is less expensive and also has extra storyline. Farmer's Market starts Sat May 2nd and I'll be there!

Sorry that I disappeared from here for a while. It was partially because my computer has been only half working for a couple months. The other is because of my other job. Good news, though, I was able to send off the two finished story sets for editing (Normal Thyme & Project Nartana Case Set 2: The South Side Criminals). Now if I could only get my computer to recognize the printer so I can scan in the artwork.. I'll figure something out. I won't have them done before the beginning of Farmer's Market on May 2nd, but soon after I hope.

So sorry that I've been quiet here. Hopefully everyone is doing well out there. I've been okay, though other obligations in my life have kept me from being able to write much. With NaNoWriMo starting in only a few days I hope that it will help kickstart my writing process. I have many books started, but not anywhere near finished. In December I have three events, so be sure to check those out. That's all for now..

I've just finished the second book in the 'Ordinary' collection about Dey & Koen. It also takes place in Everly starting in year 151 in the First Age.


Koen escaped from his hunters. Now he's been reunited with the one he cares for most. The past still haunts their future, though. The ones who destroyed Koen's life aren't going to let him stay free forever. Can he and his love Dey survive?

Fiction, Fantasy, Romance

I hope to get it done before the end of the year, but I don't know how that is going to go

I published Law of the Horde & Under Sandstorm Skies back in the summertime. Sorry that I didn't post about it before. It's been very busy over here.

Book Written = Under Sandstorm Skies

With the Tyrant disposed of, the ruined kingdoms have to get back to normal. In Hamako, Seishirou is to be the next ruler. While the succession might be clear, the surity of his crowning is not. Seishirou is still just a kid. Before he can take the leadership role he has to pass his manhood test. Out in the wilderness anything can happen. If Seishirou makes it back home then he can rule. That is, if someone else hasn't stolen the crown in the meanwhile.


It's another story from just after the Shakti Takeover. Previously I covered the east side of the central river. Now comes what happened to the west..

Well that was an unexpected rejection

Hello everyone, I have some bad news. I just got a call from the manager at Staples. They aren't going to let me do book signings at the store anymore. It is disappointing, but there's nothing that can be done when corporate makes a decision. Sorry everyone, but you'll have to wait either until Farmer's Market (praying I can get one of the few leftover spots, since I'm not a veteran) or until I can find somewhere else to set up for showings.
