CoyWolf Entertainment™ Announces Upcoming Release of Escape from the Haunted Carnival, Book 5, Hallowink Hollow by Lisa Loucks-Christenson

 CoyWolf Entertainment is happy to announce the forthcoming book, Escape from the Haunted Carnival, Book 5, Hallowink Hollow by Lisa Loucks-Christenson.

We didn’t publish Book 4, The Haunted Carnival in 2020, because we wanted to bring that book, along with the sequel to it out together, so the fans didn’t have to wait an entire year for the ending. 



Lisa Loucks-Christenson is creating the cover illustration today, October 1, 2021, for the fifth book in the Hallowink Hallow Series, a best-selling series, in a genre she never expected to enter: horror.

Providing complications don’t arise like her experiences in the past, she hopes to compete this book, creating one Post-it note per day, for the next 31 days.

Loucks-Christenson went septic on the first day of the annual Inktober contest in 2018. She often jokes at how the cover she created for the second book in the series takes the award for the worst illustration of her life.

What her fans didn’t know, she created it after coming home from working in her gallery/bookstore all day, and was deathly ill. She didn’t want to miss creating the first illustration for the month so she reached for her pen and Post-it note and began drawing with a high fever, deep chills and doubling over in guttural pain, she drew.

While en route to the emergency room, she was brushing up against the cryptids of her story as her temperature neared 104 degrees, and minutes before she’d end up in an emergency room fighting for her life. Through sepsis, through surgery and recovery, Lisa never missed a deadline and completed the book on 10/31/2018 and published it on Amazon just hours later so it would be ready for her fans’ Halloween evening read.

Loucks-Christenson says, "If nothing else, I promise my fans who follow my Hallowink Hollow Series something I couldn't give them last year . . . I only had 31 days. This year, I'll give them the escape!"

Hapless Harry: The Minnesota Muscovy Duck Documentary  

Summary

A wildlife documentary recorded in the Whitewater Valley—in The Blufflands of southeast Minnesota. The true story of a Muscovy Duck who followed a unique path into the wild and our hearts. 

Hapless Harry, the Minnesota Muscovy Duck, is the diary of a duck’s life, documented with real photos, illustrations, and hand-drawn comics created by the author and based on her unlikely hero.

 

BLURB

The true story of a Minnesota Muscovy Duck, this documentary was created as a photo record, diary, sketchbook, and memory of sorts of our time together in the spring and summer of 2009.

In the shadows of the scum-covered pond behind some swamp plants, the moment this author realized it was a Muscovy Duck peeking out, Hapless Harry’s future looked short.

Without a single flight feather, this extraordinary duck gave rise to the spirits of others, speaking their language, connecting with their hearts, and sharing answers to their every call.

We don’t know how Hapless Harry made it to shore through tributaries, ponds, or streams. But he and this author would not have crossed paths had he traveled in any other direction—or just a few miles further north to the Mississippi River.

During Hapless Harry’s brief visit here on earth, he taught us a lot about the human condition, how friends came in all shapes, sizes, and species. All their adventures are here, as witnessed and recorded through the eyes of a nature journalist covering her daily outdoor beat.

The author hopes this story will continue blessing those who find it, a reason to visit and re-read Hapless Harry: The Minnesota Muscovy Duck Documentary. A duck, who, in retrospect, may not have been such a lost duck after all.

“Finally, a story from nature where the underdog fights and wins a few battles anyway, before their last departure.” Lisa Loucks-Christenson
