As a Fairytale writer, it is hard not to fall in love with the art work by J. Scott Campbell. I have been deep under water, swimming with the mermaids since November of last year. And I want to ask, Are you ready for the Mermaids?
I am finally ready to reveal a little information on the Young Adult novel that I have been working on. Unlike so many people I did not finish my novel in the month of November for NaNoWriMo. Between the holidays and life; as well as the launch of my first Children's Book, Polarbe's Hibernation, I took a hiatus. But now I am back, and have smoothed all the waves that had been blocking my process.
Now that I have a whole story, and do not have any more waves forcing me backwards, I am ready to announce that I will be releasing the Novel on Kindle at the end of February.
So, I want to know; do you want to meet a Mermaid?
Ryliet is the next mermaid to take the throne of the nine realms. However she does not want to become queen. She wants to be free. Within her search for freedom from her responsibilities she finds something else all together. A Mask. (all rights reserved by K A Petentler.)
With that introduction, I will leave you wanting more.
I feel like I should explain the title... The Mask: an Imprint by K A Petentler.
I chose this name for several reasons. The mask is what propels everything into motion. It is a mermaid story; but it is not a version of little mermaid. It is a New Mermaid Story.
The story started from a dream that I had. I will admit that Hans Christian Anderson's The Little Mermaid and Disney's The Little Mermaid, are both places for inspiration. Certain things and secondary characters may parallel some things within those stories. However I also drew inspiration from Gail Carson-Levine's fairytales, a fairytale called the Buried Moon and Cameron Jace's The Moon & Madly, as well as a Screen Play I wrote for Once Upon a Time (called Memories are Moonbeams when I was trying to get into the ABC Writing Program.)
