I have written about the Icelandic Yule Lads and have been able to do book signings for charity. My intent is to continue, and having written about the Lost Yule Lads, I will need illustrations, so that I can do more signings for  charities local to each event.The picture is of the Icelandic Yule Lads. The Lost Yule Lads will be done in the same style.  Here is the Yule Lads site, when complete, the Lost Yule Lads will be included. Thanks for the support.

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

The illustrated version of “The Icelandic Yule Lads” is now available on Kindle. If you don’t own a Kindle, they have a free app so you can read on any device. Here is the description from Amazon…

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…
