Katie Beitz (KatieBeitz) | 30 comments Hi, just wanted to start a thread to introduce myself and share my novel.

I recently released my first novel - an Australian Middle Grade Fantasy. I wanted to write about what I know and felt that lots of fantasy novels seem to be set in a very European setting. I was interested to see if this could translate to Australia. So, my novel is set in the fictional land of Gilth - which is inspired by the landscapes of Australia. Would love to get my work out there for lots of people to read.

At the moment, I just have it published as and ebook Amazon, but am hoping to have a paperback version out soon.

Thanks for the opportunity to share.

Katie Beitz

Katie Beitz (KatieBeitz) | 30 comments Thanks for the encouraging words - I have finished the plan for the next novel and have written the first five chapters. Unfortunately, I get very busy so it is a little difficult to get it done quickly. :) That and I'm having a few difficulties with one of the characters. He just won't seem to behave!!

We often like men (in our books) who won't behave:)

Katie Beitz (KatieBeitz) | 30 comments He is an interesting character. I won't spoil too much for you - but as a character he has been a bit problematic since the very beginning - originally I had planned to kill him off, but I just liked him too much, to do it. Now, I am rather pleased that I didn't. :)


Veronica ⭐️ | 2242 comments Oooh you have me intrigued now.

It's funny how that happens, isn't it? Sometimes they're just too good to kill off, or too annoying to keep :)

Katie Beitz (KatieBeitz) | 30 comments In this case, perhaps a little of both.
