I recently visited three 5th grader classes at the New Glarus Middle School after they read my book: Intrigue in Istanbul: An Agnes Kelly Mystery Adventure.
I showed them some pictures of the places in Istanbul where the story takes place, explained a bit about my writing process (and how those pictures help me in that process), then answered some of their questions.
It was a very attentive and polite group and they came up with some really good questions. They even wrote up some ideas they had where the story might go next, so I’ll be interested to read those ideas! Book II of the Agnes Kelly Series is currently in the hands of my competent beta readers and I’m working on the chapter illustrations, so I hope to have it out in a couple months. I have yet to come up with a title, though. I know it will come to me, but it’s getting down to the wire. I need to get the cover done soon!
Ah, the joys of being a self-published author!
