What's the working title of your book?
MOTLEY EDUCATION: Ebony Charmed and The First Assignment
Where did the idea come from for this book?
I love writing each category of KidLit as much as the other, and each for different reasons. I've dabbled with some picture book stories--two which I need to finish editing and start subbing--so my toddlerish gene has been stimulated. I write young adult mostly, so I had this nagging urge to write a story that tingled with awkward hormones but focused more on adventure and discovery. I guess the idea came from my need to explore the middle kid within me.
What genre does this book fall under?
|NATHAN GAMBLE as Cain Embry|
|BELLA THORNE as Ebony Charmed|
Which actors would you choose to play your characters in a movie?
|LIAM JAMES as Lance McGwyer|
A young apprentice witch unwittingly unleashes the underworld and must team up with an enemy to find the key she lost in order to close the portal before her mistake unseats her father as headmaster of her junior high school.
Will your book be self-published or represented by an agency?
Recently sent my agent a pitch for this book, so hopefully she likes it and will rep it!
How long did it take you to write the first draft of your book?
Not finished the first draft yet, but I've finally set up my plotting draft and character arcs. I'm in the muddle of Act II.
What other books would you compare this story to within your genre?
What else about your book might pique the interest of your readers?
Ebony has an eerie connection to the spirit world, but her cat has an even better one. :)
