Long ago (as far back as 1978), there lived a kindly old grandmother who told her granddaughters about fairies. This did not take place in a whimsical fairytale realm in which grandmothers must keep a weather eye out for big, bad wolves and child-thieving water sprites. This was a real grandmother who lived in the Appalachian Mountains who was keen to instruct future generations how to make friends with the fairies. Included in the next generation was Sarah Thomas who learned from Grandmother how to cut apart acorns in the woods and artfully arrange them on stumps in hopes the fairies might find them and have tea parties.
When Sarah was still very small, she had a dreadful, recurring nightmare that occupied her head in waking hours completely enough that she found herself telling Grandmother about it.
"That won't do," said Grandmother, and she hatched a plan to chase away Sarah's nightmare for ever with the help of her friends, the fairies, and a very special quilt. Of course the plan worked beautifully. Sarah was so grateful that when she was a woman grown, she wrote down the story of how the fairies had a ball in honor of chasing away her bad dreams. This is the story we at Line By Lion Publications are privileged to share with readers like you.
Pixel and Pen Studios started as Line By Lion Publications, a publishing house dedicated to the concept that authors, and readers, deserved more. More representation, more diversity, more unique storylines. They needed a publisher who, as an author herself, would treat an author's work with the same dedication and passion as the author did. So, she openened Line By Lion Publications, a publishing house dedicated to giving an outlet to unique voices and unheard stories. Then, at her very booksigning, the author met an artist. He was the owner and creative genius behind TLJOnline. This artist started as a fan, became a friend, then her cover artist, and eventually her husband. Eventually, though, as they merged their lives, it only made sense that they would merge their businesses. Thus, Pixel and Pen Studios was born, a place where authors and artists all over the world are celebrated and where their unique voices and styles come to life. We are more than a publishing house, we are a family of wierdos, geeks, and creatives working together and supporting each other. And what we produce is more than books are art, they are gateways into another world. We are so glad that you decided to join us! Pull up a chair, pour yourself some coffee, tea, whiskey (we don't judge) and take a look at all we have to offer!
