Product Description

This book explores the many elements of the fantasy realm and examines the use of magic in stories for children and young adults. Topics include fairy tales, magical objects, secret languages, mysterious books, time travel, mythological creatures, and the roots of magic.

These details are also included in The Children’s Writer’s Guide, which examines working as an author for children and young adults. Topics include how you can get started as a writer, create time and space to pursue your craft and deal with lack of motivation and writer’s block. Topics covered include where ideas come from and how writers turn them into stories, choosing appropriate names for characters, the importance of historical research if your novel is set in a different era, writing science fiction and fantasy, the use of magic in stories for children, the role of editing and revision, how to deal with rejection, and marketing and promotion.
