New Graphic Novels from Local Author and Artist


Gnomestead Press announces the release of the first two graphic novels in its Gentle Mountain Way series, by author and artist Sarah Jeppson Zitter, of Maynard. Written for adults and young adults, Path of the Bunny is in full color, in both hard and soft covers, and Crystal Bunnytail in a Nutty Shell is a black-and-white paperback.

Zitter describes the birth of the first book thus: “Suppose I cared not what others thought of me and simply acted from my authentic self at all times? Could I find the courage to do so? Spontaneously, such an inner persona emerged through my drawings, an inner self named Crystal Bunnytail.”

The stories involve faith, care for the Earth and the difficulties of life, and chronicles Crystal Bunnytail’s graceful triumphs over the obstacles she faces. “It’s a fully holistic view of a hoped-for world that I think is inside every one of us,” says Zitter. “A place where love rules supreme and life is a joy-filled adventure.”

Books II and III will be published at a later date.
