CSFF: The Vanishing Sculptor by Donita K. Paul

Song Stuck on the Brain: City on a Hill

Today the CSFF is touring:


WhooHOO! Another great book by Ms. Paul. I was blown away by her original Dragaon Series and the new series is just as exciting.
Vanishing Sculptor's story is based in Chiril on the opposite side of the continent from Amara. Chiril has no knowledge of Wulder the Creator and it's land destined to finally hear the truth. There's a fantastic new cast of questers, along with a few favorites - like Wizard Fenworth and his trusty librarian Librettowitt. As always the dragons tend to steal the show, the minor dragaons have always been my favorites, but major or minor, the personalities presented are so much fun.

I don't like to give too much away so I'm just going to say, young or old, read it. If you enjoy fantasy that keeps you turning pages into the wee hours of the morning with a tale of discovery, faith and excitement, this is the book for you.

I mean let's face it, it's a Donit K. Paul book, how can you go wrong?


Tipper is a young emerlindian who’s responsible for the upkeep of her family’s estate during her sculptor father’s absence. Tipper soon discovers that her actions have unbalanced the whole foundation of her world, and she must act quickly to undo the calamitous threat. But how can she save her father and her world on her own?

The task is too huge for one person, so she gathers the help of some unlikely companions--including the nearly five-foot tall parrot Beccaroon--and eventually witnesses the loving care and miraculous resources of Wulder. Through Tipper’s breathtaking story, readers will discover the beauty of knowing and serving God.

Donita K. Paul retired early from teaching school, but soon got bored! The result: a determination to start a new career. Now she is an award-winning novelist writing Christian Romance and Fantasy. She says, “I feel blessed to be doing what I like best.”

She mentors all ages, teaching teenagers and weekly adult writing workshops.

“God must have imprinted 'teacher' on me clear down to the bone. I taught in public school, then home schooled my children, and worked in private schools. Now my writing week isn’t very productive unless I include some time with kids.”

Her two grown children make her proud, and her two grandsons make her laugh.

Thanks, April, and I really, really appreciate that you didn't give away plot points. That's a sure fire way to bring an author's blood to a rolling boil. I'm glad you liked the book, and I can tell you The Wandering Artist is turning out to be great fun.

I like the fact that you give us your view of the book right up front, April. That lets your visitors know how much they want to look further. I like the fact that you also compared this with Donita's other books. Her fans can then know this is another one they'll like.
