Vanessa, thank you very much for the artwork (which I have posted below). I love that picture.
Simon, Marcus and Lily’s adventure is just beginning and Hawkin is definitely going to be acting somewhat crazy and vengeful to get his daughter back safely. Soldier Boy is not only going to be a story about Simon, Marcus, Lily and their coming-of-age tale but it is also about the Mogue and what the soldiers will do to protect their own. It is going to be a bit darker, a bit more magical and mythical than The Flower Girl but I hope it all turns out the way I am imagining it.
Thank you very much to Vanessa and to everyone for reading this story and hopefully, enjoying it as well.
