I have started a GoFundMe campaign to raise the funds needed to hire an illustrator to illustrate “The Lost Yule Lads”. The Lost Lads have been around a long time but I can’t find any images of them, so we are starting at the very beginning. As I did with “The Icelandic Yule Lads”, I will be doing book signings for charity around the holidays. I’ll include a link, please spread the word, Thanks



I am soon embarking on a book signing tour for charity, charities local to each stop. I’m trying to raise money to increase the amount of stops I can make. Please check out my Go Fund Me….Thanks !

The Yule Lads have been around for many years, their story unchanged. They are a major part of the holiday season in Iceland. What I have done here is to reinterpret them, through the eyes of an outsider, and to modernize them, just a little. With my original text polished by Editor Jose M. Tirado, the Yule Lads are brought to life with all new, all original illustrations by Danya Esposito. Soon to be a holiday classic…
