LACE Welcomes Author C Robert Jones!

LACE welcomes back author C Robert Jones!
First time author and humorist C. Robert Jones is debuting his first novel Ash to Ashes, Chronicles of Chalisaria Volume 1 available now on
C. Robert Jones is a graduate of Doane University in Crete, NE. He graduated in 2002 with a BA in Psychology with an emphasis in mental health.
Fifteen years later he has abandoned any hope of mental health and chosen to make use of all of the fantastical ideas and stories banging around in his head.
C. Robert Jones is a classic geek, and when he isn’t pounding on the keyboard trying to get his next story done, he can usually be found playing online games, watching comic book movies and shows, playing tabletop roleplaying games, and telling his cats to stop slamming the cabinet doors.

LACE Welcomes Dakota Caldwell!

LACE is excited to welcome author Dakota Caldwell.
My name is Dakota Caldwell, though I prefer to go by the name “DC.” At the moment, I am a college student at Kansas State University, studying Mechanical Engineering. Realistically, I spend very little of my time actually doing schoolwork. I’m part of the Navigators, an on-campus ministry, in which I serve as a Bible Study leader. I also do sound tech at a local church, take theology courses through a different local church, and am involved in planing my wedding. Oh, and I write.
I’ve been writing for literally as long as I can remember. In fact, I have several stories that are in my Dad’s handwriting because I wasn’t old enough to write yet. I started aggressively pursuing publication my senior year of high school, and finished my first full-length manuscript that year. Since then, I have completed four more manuscripts, all of which have had equal success getting published. As frustrating as it can get sometimes, I’ve learned a ton from the process, and am far from giving up.

LACE Welcomes BK Crochet!

LACE is excited to welcome back BK Crochet!
BK Crochet was started by 2 sisters who share a passion for creating. We love crocheting and creating fun pieces for people to enjoy! We do everything from cute plushies and hats to Harry Potter-themed scarves, fun blankets and even articles of clothing such as cardigans and pullovers. My sister and I love to learn new things so we are willing to give any idea a shot! You can check out all of our projects on our Facebook page! We are always uploading new things and we would like to hear about any ideas you may have!

LACE Welcomes April Gloria!

LACE is excited to welcome back the gorgeous April Gloria to the mhk!

April Gloria is a cosplayer and Twitch streamer native to New Jersey, but currently living in Kansas. She grew up expressing herself creatively whether it be drawing, painting, hair and makeup styling, sewing, or other forms of crafting. In 2013 she decided to give cosplay a try and hasn’t looked back since. She is mostly drawn to video game characters and has over 30 costumes under her belt. April also streams the creation of her costumes on Twitch to give an inside look at the process and to build relationships with fans of her work. April’s specialties include painting and weathering fabrics and armor, and has taught herself to create patterns for sewing garments. She loves to chat with anyone who’s interested in learning more about techniques, materials, or cosplay in general.
