For this blog tour, we have an interview with Kimberly Kinrade, the author of The Three Lost Kids & The Death of The Sugar Fairy.
What was the hardest thing about writing this book?
These days, the hardest part to any of my writing is just finding the time! I have so many books I'm working on, that I'm writing non-stop and still behind. Once I sit down to write, it's pretty easy!
Which of your characters can you relate to the most?
The main characters are the Three Lost Kids, three sisters who go on adventures. They're based on my kids, so I see myself in all of them to some degree, though I probably identify with Bella the most sometimes. She's very feisty.
Which part of the book was the easiest to write?
The ending. I had that written in my head before I even started the book.
Which actors would play the main characters in the movie version of the book?
This is hard, since they're all kids. I would pick Edward and Bella's daughter Renesmee (Mackenzie Foy) to play Maddie. Landry Bender to play Bella, and probably LexieKinrade to play herself. She's quite the thespian!
Which songs would be on the soundtrack of the movie version of the book?
I don’t know which songs I'd pick, but I would pick John Williams (Harry Potter) or Hans Zimmer (Pirates of the Caribbean, Sherlock Holmes, Batman, etc) to compose the music for the movies.
Any future books in the works?
Oh so many! For The Three Lost Kids, I have a Christmas book coming on November 26th, called The Three Lost Kids and The Christmas Curse. What happens when Bella gets her wish to have Christmas every day? It's not as fun as she thought it would be!
On Jan. 15th I have The Three Lost Kids and Cupid's Capture launching. Valentine's Day will be full of broken hearts if The Three Lost Kids can't save Cupid!
And I also have a series of YA and adult paranormal books coming out in Jan and May!
ABOUT THE BOOK:
ABOUT THE SERIES:
Halloween is here and Lexie, Bella and Maddie couldn't be happier. But why does everything feel so different? Fewer houses are decorated and fewer kids are out trick-or-treating. Still, that's not going to stop the three girls from eating as much candy as they can before their parents can stop them, even if that means fighting each other for it.
When they finally discover a haunted house worthy of their favorite holiday, they forget their parents' warnings and go in alone, only to discover that the house really is haunted, and not only that, but they've been transported to a whole different world!
A dying Sugar Fairy in one of the abandoned rooms send them on a quest to find her Sugar Baby and the magic Sugar Flower in order to save her and Halloween. If they fail, Halloween will be gone forever, and they'll never return to their family.
But with Sugar Bug attacks, the Cavity Caves where they must face their deepest fears, and giant gummy bears armed with candy cane swords, the girls aren't sure they'll make it.
Their only chance is to work together, using each of their strengths to help each other. Can they stop fighting over candy long enough? Or will they be trapped in the dying Sugar Land forever?
The first three books in this series (Lexie World, Bella World and Maddie World) were inspired by Kimberly's three little girls of the same name, who discovered their own worlds where they had magical powers and wanted their mom to write about it!ABOUT THE AUTHOR:
This special edition trilogy includes full color illustrations and each book is told from the first person perspective of that little girl's world. The paperback editions of these books are 7x10 full color with a coloring book in the back of each. They also include discussion questions to get kids and parents talking about the important themes in each book, such as caring for the planet, emotional maturity and handling bullies.
In The Death of the Sugar Fairy, the Three Lost Kids start a whole new series of chapter books, told from all three kids' point of view. Moving forward, the series will not include illustrations, but will include the same fantastic stories that have made the special edition trilogy so popular.
