Today my interview with Karen Krossing posted on the Enchanted Inkpot blog. Karen’s written an amazing book called BOG, a middle-grade fantasy about a grouchy troll on a great quest. I liked so much that I blurbed it, which I hardly ever do.
Here’s an excerpt from today’s interview:
BOG took ten years to conceive, write and publish, and it certainly was a labour of love. I stopped writing BOG several times during those years because the story needed more time to mature. Some books just take longer to develop in the writer’s subconscious, I think. So I researched my characters and world further—both troll lore and the rugged, wilderness setting for my book—and I planned my plot twists and turns. I also approached other writers for feedback on my early drafts.
To see the whole interview, go here. It’s got links to Karen’s trailer, her Goodreads giveaway, and lots more.
And here’s my blurb: Bog is an irresistible character—grouchy but sweet, deeply flawed but deeply noble. I didn’t want his quest to end. Funny, inventive, and full of heart, this is undoubtedly Krossing’s best book yet.
