The inaugural story in the Lichendia series, A Mermaid’s Passage to Lichendia, a Woodland Fairyland, is right on track to be self-published and available for shipping in spring 2021. The limited first edition hardcover will be a high-quality children’s book, signed by the author and illustrator, Hillary Dow. Every illustration is needle felted out of wool.

The pre-sale of each book will help fund the self-publishing process.
