The Framerunners – Newsletter for January, 2015

What’s new on the website?

I have been remiss in keeping the illustrations for each episode posted in the online gallery (located at http://jefmurray.com/framerunners/the-gallery/ ). But, I am including a link on each episode image posted that will allow you to order prints, if you so are so inclined. If you don’t know the name of a sketch or painting print that you’d like to have, you can reference the episode in the description. I promise to try to update the gallery more regularly going forward!

Also, there is a Glossary and a Character list in the Library online (http://jefmurray.com/framerunners/the-library/). These will both be updated as the tales progress, but I am having to hold back a lot until the tales catch up with the definitions and characters!

Where are we now?

As of the latest episode (In the Company of Angels, Episode 3.1 – “The Gallery”), Jill has finally made it to Mr. Luke’s studio, which she learns is also known as The Gallery. There she discovers more about Mr. Luke’s background, and is startled to learn that the crystals are dangerous; how, we shall be learning in Episode 3.2, due out on 1/9/2013.

If the above is confusing, you can read all five posted episodes from the beginning by clicking here: http://jefmurray.com/framerunners/in-the-company-of-angels/

Where are we headed?

Episode 3.2 is a doozy! And things start picking up pace pretty spectacularly over the next several weeks. Most immediately, we’ll meet a new character (already mentioned in Episode 3.1), and Jill will discover that she has a very unique and very rare talent; one that will become very important both to her as well as to her companions going forward.

How else can I get involved?

These tales are intended to be fun, first and foremost, and I am particularly interested in hearing what you think of them! So, please feel free to email me or post comments on the episodes online!

I’m also very interested in having younger readers (in addition to young-at-heart adults!) introduced to the stories. The tales will, like works by some of my favorite authors (C.S. Lewis, J.R.R. Tolkien, Madeleine L’Engle), have a strong moral compass and deep Christian underpinnings, but they are not morality tales; they are fantasy/sy-fy adventure stories!

To that end, I would like to reach out to homeschool groups and YA literature groups to try to introduce The Framerunners (www.TheFramerunners.com) to new readers. If you know of young readers in your families or community whom you believe would enjoy these stories, please have them join our email list and/or like our FB page! List information will never be shared with anyone else for any reason, period. But…the more readers we have, the more certain it is that we will be able to continue the stories going forward. It’s really up to you, my reader, and for whom I am very grateful, to help me bring these tales to others. If you like what you’re reading, please spread the word!
