My Next Big Thing blog hop

I'd like to say a huge thank you to Terri Dryden at for getting me involved in this!

Here are my answers to the ten questions  :-)

What is the working title of your book?  Unsuitable for adults over 16 years old

Where did the idea come from for the book?  I’ve had the inkling to write my first fantasy novel for a while but NaNo provided the ideal opportunity to write it this year (2012) and I’m glad I did… I could let my imagination run free for 25 days!

What genre does your book fall under?  Teen fantasy

Which actors would you choose to play your characters in a movie rendition?  I’ll leave that up to the casting people!  It would be interesting to see how they created the Humirrels!

What is the one-sentence synopsis of your book?  Step into Cloudland and let Ishy introduce you to adventures into places deep within your imagination!

Will your book be self-published or represented by an agency?  I’m hoping an Agent will be willing to take me by the hand and lead me in the right direction!

How long did it take you to write the first draft of your manuscript? 25 days

What other books would you compare this story to within your genre?  Enid Blyton’s Faraway Tree books – I loved them as a child and the book has been quietly whispering to me ever since!

Who or What inspired you to write this book?  I read a fantasy book on the Writer’s Bureau’s Writing For Children course and ideas have been popping up ever since then!

What else about your book might pique the reader’s interest?  If you’re a teen who is into gentle fantasy then pick up this book and have a read of it!
