I have a special treat for you in this episode of Art Ink, because today’s featured artist is not only a painter, and an art therapist, but she’s also author of the Storm of Ages series, which I am lucky enough to have had the opportunity to narrate for her. Ellie M. Jalbert is an amazing storyteller, so I’m absolutely thrilled to have her permission to share the first chapter of her book, Nightmare, with you today. What’s interesting about Ellie’s painting is not just the fact that it doubles as Nightmare’s book cover, but that it was...

Art Ink Podcast Transcript:

[Intro:]

Hello my friends! I have a special treat for you in this episode of Art Ink, because today’s featured artist is not only a painter, and an art therapist, but she’s also author of the Storm of Ages series, which I am lucky enough to have had the opportunity to narrate for her. Ellie M. Jalbert is an amazing storyteller, so I’m absolutely thrilled to have her permission to share the first chapter of her book, Nightmare, with you today.

What’s interesting about Ellie’s painting is not just the fact that it doubles as Nightmare’s book cover, but that it was created long before the Storm of Ages saga hit bookshelves. She painted it for an art class, and it was her professor who dubbed it The Girl in the Red Dress.

Let me try to paint with words what Ellie has created:

[Art Description:]

You can only see the back of The Girl in the Red Dress. Her left arm is wrapped around a white pillar. The elegant dress is tight at the top; it’s held up with three thin straps, fanned out around each of her shoulders, revealing two triangles of pale skin. She sits on the edge of a balcony or window sill, and so the rest of the flowing gown is bunched up at the base of the image. She wears a 5-pointed tiara, and beneath it, golden yellow waves of hair flow down, where the longest strands come to rest at a point in the middle of her lower back.

The scene she’s looking at takes up the rest of the space: a wavy, turbulent sea that’s frothing up around the edges of brown patches of earth, some of which hold tilted stone-colored buildings and temples.

Ok, with that picture in mind... I hope you enjoy this sneak listen of the Storm of Ages saga...

[There’s no transcript for the story this time, but you’re welcome to purchase the kindle or paperback version of the book on Amazon if reading is more your thing =)]

[Conclusion:]

So, what did you think of that? Do you want to hear more of Ellie’s book? Well, if you do, I have awesome news for you, you can download the first book for free by signing up for a 30-day trial on Audible... which is also free. So what do you have to lose? I’ll have a link in the shownotes for easy access to your free copy.

Storm of Ages will eventually be a 7-book series. The first 3 books are out in paperback and for the Kindle, and the first 2 are available to listen to right now.

Thank you so much for listening. If you enjoyed this chapter and especially if you go on to hear the full audiobook, make sure you follow Storm...
