A Distance from Avalon by Mike Messier now available on Kindle and Paperback

“Our New World lineage traces to Avalonia.  Avalonia – a continent lost is the mists of time, as if dissipated by magic. And I collect lost things. Relics. Diamonds in the rough and mere clay yearning to be molded into vases.  And with this palette, I give you Avalon, our humble tribute to the once and future Avalonia. For I believe we’ve recreated a little bit of that old Avalonia magic right here.”  Jean La Croix Distance,  A Distance from Avalon.

Now, while they say that everyone has a story, it can also be said that every story has a story; or even more so ,another story that lead to the story. 

The story of Avalon, and Avalonia,  is no different; behind this story is another one, more fraught with a lovable chaos than perfect execution perhaps, but ultimately a success in art and perseverance. 

Thus let us not forget, Disregard the Vampire – A Mike Messier Documentary is  the dance that brought us to the ball. Some moons, and eight awards later, the journey now stands as a testimony to the heart and soul of several independent artists who never surrendered despite adversities of both the human and logistical variety.
