One website for everything or separate websites for each book project? That is the question that plagues many of us authors, especially me, and I have gone down every route. The good news is I don’t think there’s a right answer anymore. I think you should do what feels right, because it’s not going to be the thing that impacts your book sales. A lot of us authors write in different genres and even have several pen names, and your fans are not going to crucify you for this. In fact, hopefully they will embrace your multiple personalities like a fine wine that goes from light and fruity to dark and woodsy the longer you let it breathe.

Here is the new website for The Dentist and The Toothfairy. I am still going to keep information about the book on this website for now, but check out the new website for more images of the beautiful artwork and excerpts.

Remember, you can purchase the book on Amazon  or to purchase an exclusive, signed copy, music soundtrack included, contact me: hannah@theadventuresofhannah.com

A Cloaked Figure Emerges

A Cloaked Figure Emerges

Posted by on Oct 5, 2013 in The Dentist and The Toothfairy | 0 comments

From The Dentist and The Toothfairy

As The Dentist pulled up to The Grand Winter Ball, two tall men in dark suits made haste to open the car doors. “They are waiting for you in the dining hall,” urged one of them politely, whisking The Dentist away.

Each year before the socializing and the dancing, the dictating gentry were invited to a private dinner. The Dentist’s attendance was especially regarded, his having played a critical role in the development of the land since his days as a young general.

And each year, after dinner had been consumed and discussions had concluded about what had been and would become, the men sat back to enjoy entertainment arranged especially for them.

As the lights dimmed, the dictating gentry could hear behind two closed doors the faint ringing of hypnotizing bells. The doors opened and seven temptresses from The Tribe of Dentalis appeared.

These were the temptresses who lived in the dark forests. There they ran the factories that produced all the tools required by the various practitioners of the land. The temptresses were seducers of minds who created anything by wielding their amorous powers over men and women. Their enchanting aura lured lost soles into the depths of the overbearing trees, where they cast spells with their captivating eyes and poetic tongues. These spells could only be broken when their quarries’ tasks were deemed complete.

The Dentist sat back to enjoy the show. One of the temptresses began to slowly curl her body in front of him. For a moment The Dentist allowed his eyes to escape past her, where he saw a shadow. But it wasn’t the temptress’s shadow. Instead, it was the shadow of a cloaked figure.

Startled and oddly shaken, The Dentist focused his attention back to the temptress.

Exactly two hours after he had been whisked to dinner, The Dentist appeared on the floor of the ballroom.

The Grand Winter Ball was already in full swing. The DJ invaded the ears of the guests with pulsing rhythms as the barmen poured exotic liquors into empty cups. The gaming tables were crowded with people throwing cards, dice, chips, and money. The dance floor was packed with undulating bodies.

The Dentist scanned the floor for his wife. Several minutes passed before he spotted her leaning against a pillar holding a drink. She was throwing her head back in laughter as a man whispered something in her ear.

The Dentist made his way over and placed his arm firmly around his wife’s waist.

“Mr. Colgate, this is my husband, The Dentist,” said The Hygienist politely.

Mr. Colgate tipped his head in acknowledgement.

The Dentist looked suspiciously upon a man he did not recognize. “I see you have met my wife.”

“She is the most captivating presence in the room,” Mr. Colgate said, his eyes returning to The Hygienist.

“Well, I thank you for keeping her company during my obligatory dinner.”

“Dinner comes once a year, but a beautiful woman like this only once in a lifetime,” replied Mr. Colgate. “You need to be careful how much time you spend in the circle of old men, because her company may be stolen for a lot longer next time.”

Mr. Colgate kissed The Hygienist’s hand and lingered over it. “I hope it is not an eternity until we meet again.”

Slowly he released her hand, then turned and strode away.

“Pay no attention to him,” said the Hygienist, an unbeknownst smile curling on her lips as she watched him fade into the crowd. “He’s probably had too many cocktails.”

“Much to your amusement, it seems,” said the Dentist.

The Hygienist glanced at her husband and became quickly severed from her odd feeling of elation. “Let’s check on Crown,” she said.

She put her arm around The Dentist and led him hurriedly towards the garden.

The Dentist and The Hygienist descended into a lush patch of greenery where a magician was entertaining the young children at The Ball. To neither The Dentist’s nor The Hygienist’s surprise, Crown was standing up front with the magician, helping him with a trick.

The Dentist laughed watching Crown jump in startlement as a white bunny leapt from his collar.

Briefly The Dentist glanced beyond his son to the green moonlit lawn of the garden floor, and saw a shadow. Except it wasn’t the shadow of Crown or the magician, but the shadow of a cloaked figure.

The Dentist quickly searched the area for evidence of a cloaked spectator, but couldn’t find one. He turned to ask his wife if she had seen what he had, but she was gazing lovingly at her son, laughing, so he decided not to.

The Dentist and The Hygienist returned to the ballroom. The remainder of the evening was spent catching up with old friends, making new acquaintances, and partaking in lighthearted merrymaking.

“One last dance, lovely lady?” The Dentist beseeched, sliding his hand around his wife’s waist and escorting her to the dance floor.

The Dentist and The Hygienist floated across the ballroom. They were an exquisite couple and pleasing to the eyes of all observers.

The Dentist buried his face in The Hygienist’s neck. “You have completed my life more than you will ever know.” He kissed her supple neck and slowly made his way to her tender mouth.

For an instant, his gaze drifted past his wife. On the wall he saw a shadow. Once again, it was the shadow of a cloaked figure.

The Dentist clutched his wife so suddenly she became worried.

“What’s wrong?” she asked.

He caught his breath. “Nothing. It’s getting late—we had better get home.”

Welcome back!

Hey Dorota!

Glad to hear that you are resurfacing, i was worried about you. No biggie about laying low for a while, sometimes the body and the brain do not always jive with everything we want to do. I don’t think it is out of a lack of pushing yourself or even being a little lost trying to make sense of everything but I think it’s just a good break that you need in order to put everything back the way it was. When we have too much, we lose our senses of directions, our thoughts get scattered and shattered all over and it is hard to keep them all together. Been there too:-)

No need to feel guilty at all. You’ll find your way back eventually and take the time it takes to head back to normal.

All is good here, real busy with artwork with Marie-Josee and my own of course, i am sure that you have been following some stuff on FB. I do not post everything there that i am working on but the main stuff. Busy with gallery shows and planning 2011. It’s great! I have tons of work and never bored. :-)

Sounds like a lot but i still have the time for the next adventure with my darling Dorota when you are ready!

Funny but the other night i was relaxing watching a movie and i thought… when was the last time i went out? I can’t even remember… you know the type of night of going for dinner, movie, cocktails, bars and the night is always young… I have been such a home, studio, work mode that i cannot actually recall a full night of just letting go. The only things i do for entertainment are vernissages, hanging out at home with movies, pot lucks with friends and some small gatterings. Even on New year’s eve Bruce and I went to our friends Robert and Lara to watch a movie and eat dinner. And in all seriousness it was the best!

I think i am aging? :-) Kidding…

Without noticing i have been narrowing down my priorities. I still would love to go and hang out and go wild. But i rule a lot of it out. Since,  i got more intensively focused on my work i seem to function better. I am an artist and i love what i do, i made some compromises this last year and i am so much more productive now!

I guess what i am saying is that life does not need to be filled with options and opportunities that you are afraid to miss out on because in the end, it is your work that will be remembered. For me i would rather push myself into my art to give to to others than letting myself go and to not provide what i am good at (art).

Whatever inspires you now, is what you should be working on.

You write: Show them.

I do art:  Show them.

Love you tons baby and never forget the artist in you.

It’s true I’ve sort of disappeared…

Posted by on Feb 15, 2011 in The Dentist and The Toothfairy | 0 comments

My dearest Jerome,

I can’t believe what a flake I’ve been to you, of all people. You who has never let me down, you who always comes through in the eleventh hour, you who accommodates me so much…

But I haven’t been myself the last few months. Or maybe I’ve been going through some kind of transformation, not to be a flake, god I hope not.

I can’t explain it or really put my finger on it. I feel my productivity is slipping away, like I can’t seem to get even the easiest of tasks done. I’m not good at being a housewife. I shop too much. And I keep thinking I need a vacation, but I’ve sort of had several now, and it hasn’t seemed to help.

I can’t find a well-paying job, this one client that was supposed to give me ALL this work bailed, so I’m back to, I don’t know, blogging I suppose, and twittering, and really trying to write, although my efforts have been going to the third Sex, Life, & Hannah book lately, which is so ridiculous when I only have three pages to go with Lila, but I can’t seem to finish. I want to finish, I have ideas of how to finish, but now this whole Sex, Life, & Hannah thing…

Thank you for doing without the pictures, what is your website now? I want to check it out, and twitter about it. God, if the social networking doesn’t kill me, this new reality TV show I’ve been asked to do just might. Yes, reality TV. I should tell you the details over the phone, but in a nutshell: they want female writers to write about their life, relationships, sex, experiences, love. It’s weird, I’m sort of doing all that anyway, but this would be more personal, and more public all at the same time, and my parents may really disown me. But what’s life if you don’t take any risks?

Hubbie has sort of signed off on the whole thing. Sort of. He’d really much rather I don’t drag our private life through the mud, but I keep telling him: we can be better and smarter than the Kardashians. Although who knows if that’s what America really wants. Do they want better and smarter, or do they just want hot ass? And sex tapes? Not that there’s anything wrong with any of that, but it’s not what I’m about.

I’m still going to send you the pictures. Tonight. I’m doing it. Just in case. And I will finish Lila, though, I’m not going to give myself any timelines. For fear of looking like a flake again.

Love, love, love, and happy 2011 my dearest jerome, xoxoxo, D:)
