Have you ever wanted to see the place where a story is set?

I like to imagine the places where books I read are set, and the same goes for the books I write. I have vivid images in my mind of the historic stone cottage where Lois Stone lives in the Century Cottage Cozy Mystery series.

Last summer I started doodling with a room designer app and created an illustration of Lois’s living room to share with readers. From there, I created a 3D plan of her whole house. Using ‘photos’ from this virtual house, I’ve created an illustrated hardcover edition of A Timeless Celebration.

Readers will be able to peek into most of the rooms in Lois’s house and drop into the Honey Pot diner. Get a glimpse of a typical afternoon in Lois’s living room and another look at it when friends drop by later in the day to visit. Stand in the doorway of her dining room just after an intruder has made his escape out the back door. Sit with Lois and visitors at her kitchen table and on the back porch. Take a look at Lois’s personal items in each room to give yourself an intimate insight into her life.

The illustrated edition of A Timeless Celebration contains twelve illustrations. Two show the house and lawn in daytime and after dark. One takes you inside the Honey Pot diner and the other nine are a tour of some of the rooms in Lois’s house.
