  1. Hi Sheila,
    I was just browsing your website and thought I would ask for your advice in this endeavor Anne and I are working on: republishing Acadia Trolls. I am looking for grants to help pay the printing and other costs involved. We are stumbling around at this point, but both believe it is possible to do. The book will be converted into full color and redesiqned somewhat. I am also thinking an Acadia Troll doll too. 🙂
    Hope to connect up with soon to discuss this and other things.
    Best to you!
