Thank you!

>> Oh my god, this is gorgeous. <<

Yay! I'm glad you liked it.

>> People-with-wings is pretty much my favorite fantasy topic, and you've written such a beautiful and evocative scene with this. <<

This was the first poem written in what has become a pretty popular series, Fledgling Grace, so there is a LOT more available for you to enjoy. It touches on many different cultures and religions, and bird species from around the world.

You might also like A Conflagration of Dragons, in which several of the races have wings of various types.

>> I totally want to illustrate this scene at some point. It is just lovely. <<

I love fanart. If you decide to illustrate something of mine, you can tell me and I'll link to it from the series page so that folks can see it. If you look around my main Serial Poetry page and the subpages, you'll see some other places where people have illustrated things.

Re: Thank you!

>> Yes, I've been browsing some of the other poems. They're all wonderful. <<

Thank you.

>> I will definitely link the image to you if/when I get a chance to draw it. <<

Yay! That would be awesome.

>> Usually I am quite busy with commissioned pieces, and I have a lot of personal projects that are also on my list, but it's such a wonderful image I will definitely try to paint it at some point. <<

Do you have an archive of your artwork online anywhere?

Re: Thank you!

Awesome! I just crawled through your Tumblr feed and the game page, and posted this stuff for my readers to enjoy.

Having seen what you can do with colorful birds, I am now all the more excited.

Feel free to drop back by my blog in May when Weirspace launches. I have gamers in my audience who might be interested, if you let me know when it's open.
