Awesome pictures! Are there going to be pictures in the book? The girl who portrays Ellie is cute :)
There will be some "western" black-line illustrations, small, so readers can see what a windlass is, and a flume, Canary the burro, and a few other fun illustrations scattered throughout. I might put some up later, just for fun. The girl who portrays Ellie also is the model for the Little Andi books. LOL (She's much older now. She has the auburn hair that Ellie has, even though she modeled Andi when she was 5 and 6 years old. AND . . . She is also "Hannah" in the pictures, Andi's little niece. She modeled those pictures when she was two years old. ~Andi
Hey Andi! Isn't the person who portrayed Chad in the Circle C books "Pa" in the Goldtown Adventures books???
That's what I thought when I saw it
You are too sharp! Oops! I have two or three different portrayals for Chad and I can't make up my mind which one I like best. But AUGH! You are right! I need to fix that. The one for Pa has a sheriff's badge so that's who I envisioned it to be. I will go back and make Chad one of the other pictures I used from a couple years ago.THANKS for your sharp eyes!!!
Really COOL! pictures
Hey Andi! I have a question. Who portrays Justin,Chad,Melinda,Katherine,your mother, Betsy, and Levi(in an other comment you already said who was Hannah)?Thanks!
Here you go . . .Andi: Jessica, a homeschool girl I know from our old churchJustin: Jarrod Barkley from The Big Valley, and old TV western I like.Chad: sometimes my son, Chad, and sometimes my grandfather when he was young, but most recently a picture I found on our Clip Art CD. :-)Melinda: a character I found on the internetKatherine: a character from the Big Valley showBetsy: Michaela Joy, a girl from our old churchLevi: Evan, a boy from our old churchMother: an old-time picture I found on the internetCory: My son, Ryan, at age 14
I love the pictures you posted! Do you have any other kids, what are the names of your family members? How old are your kids now? I've always wondered about that.
Thanks, Madeline! Do you mean do "I" have any other kids . . . like me, the author? If so, yeah! I have 4 kids: Kristel 36, Chad 34(LOL), Andrew 23, and Ryan 21 (who plays Cory). Kristel has 8 children, and Chad has 2. You can see my daughter's blog here, so you can see all my grandkids. http://livingadventure4him.weebly.com/
I like those names. Thank you for keeping a blog. I try to journal, but get to two days in a row then stop. The another day, forget about a month etc. The same thing happened when I tried to keep a blog (a private one). Somehow, when I write a story, I can do it for days in a row 'til I finish a chapter/ short story. Its funny, the things I do without forgetting often somewhat relate to what I want to be.
Just wondering, but who portrays Mitch? I did recognize Justin and Katherine but I thought Mitch looked kind of familiar too. Thanks for taking the time to answer our questions! :)
Hi, Hope,How did you recognize Justin and Katherine? Do you mean who portrays Mitch in the My Family tab or the "young" Mitch that I just posted a few days ago in the CC Pictures tab? :-)I don't know the actor's name. Sorry! I just found him (and the younger version) on a couple of old Big Valley episodes. LOLIf you want to know which episodes, just ask. :-)~Andi
I just figured out how you recognized Justin and Katherine. Sorry. Duh.OK, the "Mitch" I found on "Caesar's Wife" (Audra's friend), and the young Mitch I found on "Run of the Savage." You have fun watching those now, y'hear?
LOL! It's okay. :) I actually meant the older Mitch but I was about to ask about the "young" Mitch as well! I'll definitely check those out, thanks!By the way, I love the photo manipulation with Justin talking to Andi and Levi. ;) Thanks again!
Let Andi know what you think!
