Hey! My name is Kathy Grahl, the author of the upcoming young adult, fiction fantasy novel, The Curse. Right now I'm working on the first draft, and I am finding some unexpected moments that contribute to the research. A sample of how I'd like the book cover to look is below.
Don't forget to check out the blog, where I'll keep you up-to-date on the book's progress. There, I'll tell you things I learn as I go along, suggest methods regarding story-writing, tell you things I come across in my research, and reveal "a day in the life" segments of this writer.
I'll tell you about the characters, and include snippets from the text, graphics from the work table, and whatever else I might think of. If you like, leave a comment or suggestion of something you're interested in.
There will be occasional contests and give-aways to win items like t-shirts, mugs, and signed copies of the book when it's released. You'll also get a chance to contribute your artwork for maps or character illustrations. I may even need help naming the towns or people.
Keep in mind, I'm still writing the first draft. But if you stay with me, you'll be the first to know when the book is due out. But, for now, sit back and enjoy the journey. (It's all about the journey, isn't it?)
