Every new year’s eve and night in Serbia Grandfather Frost (who looks suspiciously like Santa Claus) comes to deliver presents under a pine tree (looks a lot like Christmas tree, but it has nothing to do with any kind of religion). The gifts are given to good children (and adults) and represent hope for a prosperous and happy new year.
I think Grandfather Frost and Santa Clause have the best job in the world. Not only do they work one night a year, but they also bring joy to the world.
I love giving gifts.
Those of you who know me personally can remember me making hand-made cards and little presents to give away on any special occasion. These days I do not have the time to create such personal gifts, but I still love giving away presents.
For New 2016. Year I’m gifting:
- Travelling Tips for Economy Class Travelers. The beginning chapters of Italy Via Rome talk about getting ready for a trip; what to pack, what to prepare, what to do at the airport… If you’ve never travelled before, or are in a panic whenever you have to go away, I hope these tips would help you enjoy your travels more.
- Happy New Year full resolution image from the previous post that you can share with friends.
- Episode 1 of Warriors of Virtue. Be the first to read Warriors of Virtue. I hope to release Episode 1 in March of 2016. It includes: Mistress Nature Our Great Saviour excerpt, Prologue, and Chapter 1 to Chapter 3. The gift is a BETA of the Illustrated Edition (if you’ve just come upon this blog, I intend to publish Warriors of Virtue as a Time Limited Text Only Edition, Illustrated Edition, and Artist’s Edition). There are still some illustrations I need to create before officially publishing, and my editor needs to go through a final check, but you can enjoy reading the beginning of the fantasy series. I think that anyone who likes The Lord of the Rings, Sailor Moon, Mythology, Arabian Nights, Fairytales,… will like Warriors of Virtue. If it was a movie, I would rate it PG, because there are some dark themes that may not be suitable for children.
These gifts will be available until January 15th, so make sure check your email (if you are a Mili Fay Art Fan Club Member) and download them before they are gone.
If you are not a Mili Fay Art Fan Club Member you can join for free below. The gifts are currently part of the Welcome package.
Happy New Year!
Wishing you only the best!
