The collective talent listed above . . . Wow! If you’ve missed any days, make sure to catch up. It’s been awesome.
Today, Braden Bell is here discussing priorities for writers
Braden Bell is the author of Kindling, a middle-grade novel that’s fast-paced and a lot of fun. I loved it!
You may remember me mentioning Kindling before. It’s book 1 in the Middle School Magic series. Last summer, I was part of Braden’s book tour. As part of the tour, he answered some of my questions about his book. Read that interview here.
This blurb describes the book perfectly:
- Homework? Of course. Crushes? Sure. But who knew seventh grade included superpowers?
Book 2 in the series, Penumbras, will be released this July, and I can’t wait.
Braden and I both share a love of books and music. We both have five children. We also serve on the LDStorymakers BOD together, so that’s cool. Super nice, talented guy. I’m excited he agreed to share his thoughts for March Book Madness.
So here he is.
