Emily Golus has been dreaming up worlds since before she could write her name. A New England transplant now living in the Deep South, Golus is fascinated by culture and the way it shapes how individuals see the world around them. Her fantasy works are filled with diverse and complex people who are unwillingly united in times of great danger.

Golus aims to write stories that engage, inspire, and reassure readers that the small choices of everyday life matter. In addition to her first two fantasy novels, Escape to Vindor and its upcoming sequel, she writes about world-building and what it truly means to be a storymaker. Read her blog at EmilyGolusBooks.com, and explore her fantasy creations at WorldofVindor.com

You learn this craft by doing. Set aside time every week to write something--whether it's a blog post, a short story, a poem, or even just a journal entry. Make it a habit and protect this time!

The next step, when you feel ready, is to have other people read your writing and give you feedback. You'll want people who are supportive but also honest and objective (so maybe not your mom, who will say it's wonderful no matter what). A book club or writers group is ideal for this. Ask them what they liked about it, and what confused them or what they think could be improved.

Then take their advice to heart. You don't have to do exactly what they suggest, but honestly look at your work and see how you can make something better, even if you like it as-is. This is the only way to learn how to write not for yourself, but in order to reach others with your words. (less)

A delightful fractured fairytale with a lot of humor and heart. Though the Cinderella story is one that has been revisited countless times over the years, Tebo's version adds fresh and unexpected twists.
Mists of Paracosmia by Emily Golus
"_Mists of Paracosmia_ levels up the world you came to love in _Escape to Vindor_. A little more adult in theme, with Vindor cracking at the seams with internal threats of genocide, Emily Golus' sequel is an adventure that makes you think.
