Thought I’d write a little bit about my other project. It is a book aimed at tweens, and I started writing it in the summer of 2013. It has been submitted to a publisher, and I’ve been revising it for over a year now.
The main protagonist is a girl named Tiara. She’s thirteen years old, and is unwittingly taken on an epic journey to save the world as she knows it from evil dragons.
Along the way, she learns about herself and gains a new unlikely friendship in the prince of England, a shy, timid boy who just wants to be left alone with his books.
Together they have to visit vikings, fight pirates and face their fears.
This book is obviously a fantasy book, inspired first and foremost by Philip Pullman’s excellent Nothern Lights, but also by Robert E. Howard’s Conan, and Tolkien’s The Hobbit. I really hope it will be published within next year, and that I can begin to give out more information soon.
Trouble in Trondheim is currently on hold until this revision is done, but it is progressing nicely.
