A Better Map

Here's a better look at the map Lisa helped me make for Bloodstone. She was not completely satisfied with the lettering, but I told her I wanted something that looked hand drawn, the kind of map you would expect to find in a small village, rather than something a professional cartographer would make.

  1. Hi. I am an English Teacher in NE Arkansas and I am hosting a Reading Festival for 7th, 8th, and 9th grade students on May 3rd. There are 4-5 area schools participating and I wanted to speak to you about a possible speaking engagement. What is a good way to contact you?

    1. I would love to be involved. I did a literacy event at Prairie Grove Middle School last November that went really well. Send me an e-mail at (my author e-mail), so we can discuss this further.

  2. awesome map, lisa. would it be a compliment to say it reminds me of the ones in LotR? my dad had those in hard cover with big fold-out maps glued in.
