Q&A Week 1 - November 7, 2019
1. Where does your book take place?
The Jewels of Fate starts out in New York where the main character, Chuck, lives. If you've been to New York, you will know a lot of the landmarks mentioned in the first few chapters, such as Central Park. However, the main part of the book takes place in Acanesia, which is a fictional kingdom in another dimension!
2. How long did it take you to write The Jewels of Fate?
This book has been a work in progress for about five years! I started the first draft when I was in Grade 7, and since then, I have been rewriting sections of the book, adding to the plot and changing the characters. The final draft took me a year to finish and about three months to fully edit.
3. How do you pronounce "Oglaturanta?"
The Oglaturanta is definitely one of the most dangerous creatures in Acanesia - and the most difficult to say! If you're getting tongue-tied, you're not the only one! Hopefully this will help. You can break the name down into five parts:
Og (as in fog)
La (as in last)
Tu (as in tu-tu)
Ran (as in the past tense of run)
Ta (as in taco)
