So today I’ll share a little bit about how The Lost Princess came about and my writing journey.
It all started a few days into the fall of 2017. I was in my creative writing class in downtown Asheville, NC. My teacher (big thanks to her!) put up a couple pictures on the TV and told us to choose one and write about it for a while.
I chose one:
But never quite thought I’d like the story so much. I decided to write a Rapunzel-ish story since I’d always wanted to write a fairy-tale-twist. I started with a character named Celeste, (why I don’t remember) and gave her long hair, and an evil mother. I was going to make it all about Celeste, but then her rescuers came along, and I liked them more than her, so I wrote about them. After I was a few chapters in, I knew what I was doing and semi plotted out the whole story. (Although the ending was a surprise to even me)
So that’s how my story started! Tomorrow you’ll get a surprise post because I don’t know what I’m going to write yet.
And of course, the giveaway!
AND a last minute addition to the giveaway is a PAPERBACK copy of The Lost Princess. Up until now, I thought I was not able to do a paperback, but it turns out I can.
Hope you enjoy the blog tour! The final day, May 10th, The Lost Princess will be available on Amazon.
