Part One of the book introduces 28 characters. Not easy to do with 120 pages. Nathan’s cover and Ian’s illustrations were that much more important because of this challenge.
Nathan’s version of Maille Rose has a lot of heart in it. And action. And mystery. Typical Nathan.
Part Two is where magic peeks over the horizon of reality and goes BOO! Simon Sharp may have a hard time accepting it, but he can’t deny trolls and 7 ft elderly wizards and floating chairs.
This cover creeped me out when I first saw it. My eyes were drawn to the eyes after wandering through the haze for a split second. Nathan is constantly thinking about the way his audience experiences his work.
Part Three is the first part of the story where Simon is swimming (sinking?) in a world of magic and danger. We get to see him fight with the knights of New Camelot. We get to see what Uncle Victor is up to. And we get to see the opening sequence of the finale!
This cover is just so flagrantly powerful. Just like its subject, Uncle Victor.
The Camelot Kids: Part Four reveals the plot, the players and the victims. Nothing will be the same again in New Camelot.
I’m delighted with The Camelot Kids. I’m even more delighted with the response to it so far. It’s consistently on a number of genre bestseller lists on Amazon, including the Arthurian category! The reviews have been glowing, which generate enough heat in my bones to keep me warm in a New England Fall.
But I always feel like I should be working harder to get the word out. So when opportunities to shine emerge, I’m game!
The 2014 Goodreads Choice Awards are a free and easy way to earn some recognition for my new Fantasy series.
If you’ve enjoyed The Camelot Kids so far I’d appreciate it (endlessly) if you’d head to Goodreads and write in The Camelot Kids: Part One. If I can get a few dozen votes for Part One I think we can get the word out to more Fantasy fans.
Thanks for ANY help you provide. I appreciate every kind email, honest review and sale.
Oh, and get ready for The Camelot Kids: Part Four! Armor up!
