And, check out the amazing book trailer Aidana WillowRaven created for the book:


  1. Congratulations Karen! I'm looking forward to reading the book - and I LOVE the dragon on the cover.

  2. Julie, Thank you so much. From lullaby to dragon!

    Aidana did an amazing job on the cover and interior illos.

    I hope all is well with you and your family.

    Please let me know what you think of Walking Through Walls when you read it.


  3. Up top, the post says "Walking through Walls will is NOW available." The "will" is an error, I assume.

    Anyway, good luck with your blog book tour. :) I definitely want to try a blog tour in the future.

  4. Hi, Lauren,

    LOL Thanks so much Lauren for that catch!
