There are two C. Fulsty’s characters hiding out in the book I’m illustrating, “Where Are Mommy And Daddy?” Be sure to keep your eyes open for them when this book comes out. Strato and Tock will be ready.
Here are some things I am currently working on.
– Tony’s Butterflies (99% complete)
– 8 pages and the cover illustrated for another book I’m donating to charity
– have a meeting on April 13th for a fundraising book event
– working on a school visit in May
That’s it for now, but lots more to come. Two books sitting off to the side to be illustrated this summer.
COMING SOON! C. Fulsty Books illustrators, C. Fulsty & Shanilee Fields, will begin hiding book characters in unrelated books. We decided to have more fun illustrating and wanted to give you all something more to make C. Fulsty Books even more fun to read.
I will begin working on a new website page that we will post all of the characters hidden and in which book they are hidden. Otherwise, you can try to find them yourself and check to see if you found them all at a later time.
SECRET: There is currently one C. Fulsty book out right now with a hidden character. Do you know which book it is? Do you know who the character is?
Tock the Rock, my first book ever. There are several copies floating around somewhere. Should I redo the book though?
I’ve been told by a few people that have read the book, that they liked it. I hated the illustrations because it was my first book, and I thought the story was meh. I made it no longer available because of this. More and more people are asking me to revise it and bring it back. What do you think? A story about a rock that doesn’t want to roll around like other rocks to get smooth and round. The other rocks are trying to get smooth and round so when they get thrown across the pond the skip instead of just sinking. At the end though, they all end up in the same place. Think it’s a good enough story to give another chance to? Care to see what happens to these zany rocks? Let me know!
We are working on a project to get a couple books of ours into hardcover. We have been in talks with Tattered Cover (a Colorado specific bookstore) to carry our books once they are in hardcover. We also have a few libraries who are willing to carry our books once they are in hardcover. The only issue with this project is it can’t start until we get more money to cover the cost for it. Like most people though, we don’t have any money to throw at this. Which puts us in this “fun” position of asking everyone for money. So here we go.
www.gofundme.com/cfulstyinhardcover is where we would love people to go donate for our cause or at the very least if you could share our GoFundMe we would be extremely appreciative. Maybe you can even check out the benefits of donating?
Tony’s Butterflies is a new book coming out soon that is my first “Donation Book.” The rights along with any profits will belong to the Tony Sly Music Foundation For Kids.
This is an important book to me because Tony Sly has been a big influence throughout my life. Tony’s Butterflies was made in collaboration with the Tony Sly Music Foundation For Kids drawing heavy inspiration from the song “Keira” with other inspiration from “For Fiona.” Both songs written by Tony Sly, the lead singer for the band No Use For A Name. I also wrote the book while listening to the Spotify playlist “Tony’s Butterflies.”
Don’t worry, the book is on it’s way. See if you can read it without shedding a tear. It’s a great story with some heart tugging undertones. Hope you enjoy it!

Thank you so much to the great author Michelle Dennise! She did an author spotlight on me on her Facebook page. Follow the link below.
I want to start by thanking all of the new blog followers!
I wanted to post an update on books since I haven’t posted many blog posts lately.
Shanilee, the awesome-est illustrator, is illustrating a book for the Colorado Veterans Project. The rights to the book will be donated to their charity for whatever they need to continue helping veterans. She is lined up for two more books to be illustrated after her current book, if she doesn’t get sick of me by then, haha.
I, C. Fulsty, am working on writing two books and will begin illustrating one after I finish writing. One book will not be a donation book because we’d like to make some money to continue creating fun kids books, Shanilee will illustrate this book. So far, it’s looking like this book will be called the “High High Heels.” Next I will be doing a new Donation Book which we do not have a charity to donate to yet, but don’t worry, we’re working on it. If we can’t find a charity, we may turn it into a book that we will donate all or some of the profits. After those two are finished, I plan to illustrate two books. One is another Christmas book, while the other is a book I do not want to release any information yet, can’t have anyone taking my creative titles.
