Today, I am beyond excited that the lovely and multi-talented Erin Al-Mehairi of Oh, For the Hook of a Book! is showcasing a behind-the-scenes look at how Corcitura was created. Wondering why the book takes place before Dracula was even published? Then head over to Erin’s blog to find out that—and more!
And make sure to check back tomorrow for a never before published excerpt from the POV of the only female narrator in Corcitura, Madelaine Dennison. Writing Maddie’s part of the story from her vantage point was a wonderful experience, most especially since that was the first time I had written in first person present tense. After that, I was hooked on that wonderful and immediate writing style, which I plan to utilize much more in the future.
But wait, there’s more! 😉 While you’re getting a peek into Maddie’s world tomorrow, be sure to enter the Corcitura giveaway for your chance to bring home a Kindle copy of the book just in time for Halloween!
Don’t miss out!! 😀
