Katie Cross – Miss Mabel’s School For Girls

Screen Shot 2014-03-18 at 12.24.15 PMNote from Devin’s Desk: Please welcome my friend, Katie Cross to the blog! Her new book is coming out tomorrow!! How exciting!??? Let’s give her a warm and big welcome!!

For me, writing a book involved a lot of staring at a computer screen, erasing text, pulling my hair out, and Pinterest.

Oh, yes. You heard right. Pinterest.

The power of Pinterest comes from the images. I always find photos that I want to remember and have access to, so I pin them to a board for later reference. So, I thought to myself, Hey, I’m releasing my first book, Miss Mabel’s School for Girls. Why don’t I give the readers something to look at in anticipation of the book?

So instead of a boring interview where I talk about how great I am, I’m here today to take you on a visual tour to give you a few ideas of what you can expect to find in this exciting new YA fantasy novel, Miss Mabel’s School for Girls.

Let’s take an adventure…
