Mirabelle Island: The Map!

I’ve been posting this all over the place, so if you’ve already seen it I apologize.  But I’m so excited about this I can’t not post it everywhere!

After seven of my books in the same fictional location – Mirabelle Island – I decided to commission an artist to do an illustration.  He finally finished it earlier this month and here it is …

Every one of my seven books tends to focus on a different part of the island.  Book five, THE PURSUIT OF JESSE out in July, featured primarily Sarah’s house. Book six, HER SURE THING, Mirabelle Stables and Livery.  Book seven, REDEMPTION AT MIRABELLE out in August is the only book in the series that takes it all in!

So what do you think of the map?  And if you’ve read any of my Mirabelle books, I’m curious whether or not it fits at all with what you imagined.  Oh, and another fun fact … this artist is the same guy who did our banner several years back.  Dan Fletcher!

To celebrate the release of HER SURE THING earlier this month, I’m giving away a book from my back list, so check out my web site so you know which book you’d like!

Hope everyone’s having a great summer!

    That is the coolest thing ever, Helen. Are you going to print up copies to hand out at signings?

    Great idea, Michele. Hadn’t thought of that, but it would be fun!

    The artist’s name is Dan Fletcher – putting in a good word for him in case anyone is interested – email fletc092@d.umn.edu

  8. Oh, Helen, this is fabulous! I love maps, and to have such a terrific rendition of my own fantasyland would be a dream come true. I do my own little sketches when I’m working on a story, but nothing this gorgeous. it reminds me of one I have of Minnesota and Dakota from an 1864 atlas–bought it in an antique shop in GA years ago. Got it cheap because the shop owner said I was the first person who’d showed any interest ing “that part of the country.” It’s all hand colored and has little notes all over it like “prairie with numerous lakes, ponds, Indians.”

    Thanks guys!

    Kathy, I wanted it to look a bit like a tourist map. Something you might find in a brochure at a visitor center. Figured it might help with the feel of Mirabelle being a vacation and wedding destination. Dan did a great job!

  13. It is wonderful, Helen. And does look like something you’d pick up at a tourist center. Definitely makes me want to vacation there. 🙂

    Perfection! All the work, the detail, Dan did an amazing job! It definitely makes me want to go on trip to visit the lighthouses, the stables, Duffy’s Bar, Rock Pointe Lodge etc. Beautiful!

    Thanks Christie and Laurie!
