It’s there when I wake up in the morning with scenes and dialog trampling through every thought I have. It’s there in the evening when I’m trying to settle in for a good night’s sleep. The ideas are even there when I’m trying to have a conversation with those around me. While this is wonderfully exciting, it is also most inconvenient.ballon foot adidas link ballon foot adidas link

How can I possibly start something else? There are only so many hours in a day and only so much space in my brain.http://callingdrugs.live/2019 serrer dans bottines http://callingdrugs.live/2019 serrer dans bottines

I see the main character in every daydream. I hear snippets of conversation between the characters and I don’t even know their names, yet. Today the entire beginning of the story unfolded while I was in the middle of my morning ablutions. The dang thing is relentless!denardo coleman schlagzeuger link denardo coleman schlagzeuger link

I must begin to write some of it down before it all disappears into the ethers. So, when I should be working on the other two pieces, here I sit at my computer banging out the first few pages. Sheesh! Such rude behavior.

Tell Me What You Think

 

 

I have a question for any of you who purchase books for children. But before I ask, I’d like to set the stage a bit by telling you the reason for my question.

As you know I have written the book PRINCESS KANDAKE: Warrior by Choice…Appointed to Rule. The book is aimed at the ‘Tween reader, aged 10-14. Its content is also appropriate for advanced younger readers.

When I wrote this book I made a conscious decision to leave certain content out. I knew I would catch some heat for it, and I did. I’ve even been told that decision was one of the contributing factors in not being picked up by particular publishing houses.

Another conscious decision of mine was to write stories that incorporate ‘happy endings’, protagonists with good values, and to add characters with relationships that some would describe as a bit utopian/perfect.

My reason for doing this is that my target audience is still quite young in their view of the world. I don’t believe it’s my place a an author to tarnish that.

As a mom, grandmother, aunt, and psychologist I want kids to dream and reach for the stars, today. There are plenty of things that will crop up in their tomorrows to discourage them. I see no need for me to speed up that process.

So here’s the question. A few reviewers disagree with my position. I would love to hear from you. What do you think is an appropriate read for this age group? Do you feel this tender age should be introduced to more adult content?

Leave me a comment and I’ll treat you to a free digital copy of PRINCESS KANDAKE: Warrior by Choice…Appointed to Rule (book #1 in the PRINCESS KANDAKE series). If you write a review for it, I’ll treat you to a free digital copy of Weight of the Crown (book #2 in the series).
