A day of firsts

TODAY, this first day of the year I sold the first copy of Telling Stories to the Trees on etsy, and I received my first ever royalties! They were for my front cover illustration for the lovely series of Gypsy Music books written by Gundula Gruen and published by Spartan Press.

A collection of 63 gypsy tunes from Eastern Europe and the Balkans, collected and arranged for fiddle, Bb & C instruments with chord symbols. The CD was recorded live by Gundula Gruen (violin) and Zivorad Nikolic (accordion). Countries represented include Russia, Hungary, Romania, Ex-Yugoslavia, Poland, Czech Republic, Slovakia, Bulgaria, Romany Tunes and some Virtuoso gypsy pieces to finish. Difficulty level ranges from easy to advanced!
