My Mascot for Shadows of Valor!

The historical backdrop for my novel, Shadows of Valor, touches on the illegal practice of smuggling wool from England in 1300 A.D. after King Edward I levied a heavy tax on it. I was at a local thrift store the other day and found the cutest little sheep buried among other second hand stuffed animals. I thought, "Hey, I could use that little guy!" And so I did. He is now my unofficial mascot for Shadows of Valor, sporting a sign picketing against smugglers by stating "HARK YE:  Say 'NO' to smuggling wool (it's ba-a-a-a-d)". What a cutie!
