So, here I am, procrastinating again and BOOM. Another wee gem appears in my mind and flows onto my page like a river of honey onto warm toast (what is it with me and food?).
Anyway, I was just pottering about on my blog and tidying up my in-box (horrific amount of read mail just sitting there – be gone I say to no-one in particular and deftly hit the delete key), when I started to type. To re-cap, I had decided a while ago to try a book for wee ones but older than the wee ones I normally right for. Maybe wee N’s age – 8 or so.
I changed a few things here and there but I really wasn’t getting very far when I decided to just go for it and it just started to flow. I have started to draft it but thought I would let you all have a sneaky peek at the potential book blurb for the back cover – you know the thing you read on a book to see if you really want to buy it or maybe you just liked the look of the front and wanted to find out if it is worth a second look, possibly something that might persuade you to spend your well-earned cash?
Ladies and Gentlemen – I give you ‘The Warlocks Tail’. To add dramatic effect you could always read it in a voice-over style or however you like really. I wrote it with superhero/avenger type music in my head, if that helps.
