Supporting Independent Bookshops

Bear by Hannah Willow


The day came when it was time to parcel up the bear necklace and send it off to Number Seven in Dulverton on the first leg of it’s journey to a new home.

Wrapped up, with the help of cats, and then packed and posted it set off and arrived this morning at Number Seven to await collection.




And the necklace arrived into Davina’s safe hands.

Meanwhile, Song of the Golden Hare comes out in October ( early Sept release for indies) and I am wondering what to do for this. I can either do a very small watercolour painting of a Golden Hare, or a small silver hare amulet, but I am curious to know what people would like. I may do both.


About Jackie

I am an artist and writer. I live in a small house by the sea in Wales where I write, paint, walk and watch and dream of bears and whales. I love to read, have a wish for wings and prefer the company of animals to that of humans, though at times I can be quite friendly. I am learning how to work with wood engraving tools and hoping to show that you can teach an old dog new tricks.

    What a question, it is like choosing at a smorgasbord, laden with temptations. Just don’t burn yourself out.:)
