My award-winning Sir Kaye the Boy Knight series has an exciting new look with four redesigned covers. Why the change? Since book one, The Knighting of Sir Kaye, was released in 2012, the appeal of the stories has spanned all age groups, including a dedicated group of adult readers without children who buy the books for their own enjoyment.
Dan G. states, “This series of books takes me back to my childhood when my young mind was brimming with possibilities of adventure and reminds me of one of my most special friendships from that time of my life.”
Betty D. writes, “These books fill me with delight—the stories and characters are so engaging!”
And of course young readers have plenty of great things tosay as well. After reading the first installment of the Sir Kaye series, Samuel R. wrote, “This is the first time I’ve ever read a whole book! I couldn’t stop reading even though reading is hard for me. When is the next one coming out?”
I wanted the new covers art to reflect the wide appeal this series offers for all ages, and I look forward to hearing your feedback on the new cover designs!

Books in the Sir Kaye series have won the Mom’s Choice Award Gold, the IndieReader Discovery Award, the UK Wishing Shelf Award Silver Medal, the Moonbeam Children’s Book Award Silver Medal, the Voyager Marble Award, the Foreword Reviews Book of the Year Finalist, and the Readers’ Favorite Bronze Medal.
Although each individual book has won awards, the entire Sir Kaye series won the coveted 2017 Royal Dragonfly First Place Award for Best Children’s Series.
“Winning any place in the Royal Dragonfly Contest is a huge honor because in order to maintain the integrity of the Dragonfly Book Awards,a minimum score is required before a First or Second Place or Honorable Mention will be awarded to the entrant – even if it is the sole entry in a category,”explains Linda F. Radke, president of the Dragonfly Book Awards program.“Competition is steep, too, because there is no publication date limit as long as the book is still in print.”
