The College Girl’s Coiffetta Sequel: Papillon Noir Concept Art

I’m not particularly great with art, but I like to draw concept art and profiles for the characters so I have a reference point when making my story. I thought I’d share some of it with all of you. Please forgive my low quality coloring. I’m not used to drawing with a tablet. Still, I hope you can kind of visualize the character through it.

Here’s the story synopsis: Papillon Noir tells the story of Mahieu Len, the grandfather of Korbel. When Gatsby is struggling to find the reason for Korbel secretive behavior, he confides in Mahieu for advice and support. Along the way, he can’t help but ask the story of how Mahieu met his late wife, Seraphina. The answer will shock him.

Travel back in time to 1944 in France, when a young Mahieu Len fights at D-Day in order to liberate France and gain back the Len Estates in Champagne. Along the way, he finds himself tangled in the complicated life of a young prostitute from the Papillon Noir maison in Cherbourg, France.

I hope you all are as excited for this book as I was in making it. It was one of my favorites to research and write. Thank you all for your support, and Happy 4th of July to all my American friends!

Now that I have finished the 4giveness Series, I am moving on to a much more light-hearted and cute story called The College Girl’s Coiffetta: A Len Champagne Story. This one will have a sequel coming out later this year, but I wanted people to see one of my adult books. While not really anymore explicit in content than my last books (They are still clean, Christian books for the most part), the audience for this one is much more college-aged adults than teens. Here it is.

However, in meeting the eccentric art major, Cici Blackwood, she’ll find that and more. Still, life is never that simple, and when school drama and betrayal stand in the way of that picture-perfect world, what’s a 21st Century flapper girl to do but fight for it the only way she knows how.

Eventually a sequel to this one will be released which discusses Korbel’s grandfather, Mahieu telling his story on how he met his wife during WWII in France. I do not have a cover yet for that one, but I am very excited to complete that story along with how excited I was in writing it. I hope you enjoy the Len Champage series of books, and thanks so much for the support.
