Hi there! And thanks for reading!

Exciting news:

Hi, Kelsey!

I wanted to choose a subtle magic for Micah and Ephraim. I didn't think a flashy talent would fit them well, particularly Micah. And I wanted it to be something they could do with their hands. (As opposed to something less tangible, like saying magical words.) When it was time to make the decision, young Ephraim's boots (and laces) were already in the book, and knot tying seemed like just the thing!

*Edited to add link.*

I'm going through old responses, and I see I didn't answer the first half of your question!

The inspiration for different parts of the book came from a lot of places. You can read all about them on my website here, under the FAQ section: http://cassiebeasley.com/faq-circus-m...

A Circus Mirandus Refresher to Get You Ready for The Bootlace Magician

Do authors ever try to summarize their own books? It sounds like a scary prospect to me. Which is maybe why I’ve chosen to do the job in the form of a character list instead.

I think this should be a good refresher for those of you who want one before The Bootlace Magician releases next Tuesday. You can skim over the list and pick out the names of characters you’d like to read a little more abo...
