We’re so lucky to have such great friends supporting our storytelling.
I think these two pieces constitute our very first fan art!

Transcript for FraeLea Conversations #9:
RaeLea: Hi, welcome to FraeLea Conversations. I’m RaeLea and this is Frank. We’d like to do a short video to express some gratitude for our fans.
Frank: Yeah, just a short appreciation video. We are so blessed to have friends, family and fans; people that we never even met, that have been helping us spread the word about our burgeoning authoring career. Back this spring, we had bookmarks made. Little mini book marks, (holds up a bookmark) that were distributed. We had quite a few people, well over two dozen people, who volunteered to help distribute those book marks.
RaeLea: Yes, and thank you very much.
Frank: We’ve over five thousand of them, out in the wild, that has resulted in subscribers from Texas and all over the U.S. I think we had at least one in Canada, so it’s kind of exciting that way. Thank you so much, to all of you, who distributed those bookmarks. And then we had a few friends that actually went a little bit further. Sam Scheer, from Vigilante Woodworks, in Montana. (Holds up wooden sign) He made this awesome, CNC cut out of our logo, Frank and RaeLea, logo, on this reclaimed lumber from a lumbermill in northwest Montana.
RaeLea: It’s pretty awesome!
Frank: Thank you, Sam, and his wife, Devenne. That was so thoughtful of you guys. We have it hanging in our living room. It’s such a thoughtful gift, so thank you for that. And, the other one we had was from Rob Severson, at USBMicro. He made this (shows the ‘Break Glass In Case Of Fog’ box) after reading Fog Over Mandaree, our free prequal novel, that’s available at frhurt.com. And, if you can’t read it, it says Break Glass In Case Of Fog. It’s a reference to a scene, or several scenes, in Fog Over Mandaree. It involves MRE’s, which he’s got a meal ready to eat, some glow sticks. So, it was a cute little…
RaeLea: You’ll get it if and when you read the book.
Frank: Yeah, when you read Fog Over Mandaree, you’ll get the joke, I guess.
RaeLea: So, thank you very much.
Frank: Yes. Thank you, Rob. Thank you, Sam. And, thank you to all of you who have been so supportive to us. We’re just getting started. We really appreciate all the support you’ve been showing us.
