So, this is it! The last day of my Kindle Scout campaign. Please, please, please, please, nominate The Isle of Jeru. If chosen, you will receive a free ebook, via Kindle. Even if you don’t have a kindle, you can get the app and sign up for a free Amazon account, and read millions of free books from their catalogue!
The Isle of Jeru is a book series, I’m hoping 5 books in total, with Sarah Goodwin as the main character. The characters and inhabitants on Jeru are (mostly) magicals. I struggled over using the “w” word (witch) in the book because I feel like they almost see it as a derogatory term, or a term that has negative connotations from their history, especially living just off the coast of Salem. They use the terms “magicals” and “non-magicals” if it ever comes up.
I am currently writing book 2, tentatively entitled “The Piper’s Dream” in which we delve into more Greek mythology (Pan), as well as children’s stories like the Pied Piper, and Peter Pan. There’s a few other minor mysteries I’m waiting to weave in there. A treasure map of sorts. A upside down backstory/history of a famous villain. It’s coming along very well and I’m excited over it!
I managed to outline book 3, tentatively entitled “Four Cully Birds”.
Now, I must away!
Oh, I was right! Because my book was ending soon I was bumped into the Hot and Trending list! Also, I went on Goodreads and started a discussion and managed to get some nominations from the people there. They are a lot of really great discussion going on there that I learned a lot from. Especially on what people are looking for in books of my genre.
