Stourbridge, West Midlands, England (October 7, 2014) – Author Krista Joy has announced the publication of her first Children’s book, Dragons and Dreamsellers. After building a successful career writing adult Short Story eBooks, Joy decided it was time to try something new and light-hearted.
Dragons and Dreamsellers was inspired by Joy’s life-long love of Sci-fi and Fantasy works, as well as her recent exploration of the Steampunk genre. The book has been slowly coming together through written & drawn journal entries ever since she was a teenager. An accomplished artist as well, many of her characters begin as sketches in her notebooks.
The young adult book follows the story of Letisha, a young girl with a serious time-keeping problem who is sent to stay with a watchmaker for the summer. There, she is introduced to a wide array of colorful characters who enter the store through a magical doorway. Soon, Letisha is drawn into a fantastical adventure as she tries to rescue Mr Tempus, the watchmaker from otherworldly beings who have taken him prisoner. Along the way, she meets an exciting cast of characters that include dragons, trolls, and other mystical creatures.
“Since she is described as being mismatched and eccentric, it was interesting to see how Letisha would react to being thrust into a place full of strange creatures. Not only that, it gave me a chance to really run with some of the fantasy characters we’re so used to seeing on the big screen and reading about in books. I took time to explore my own versions of some well-known creatures, as well as developing and experimenting with some of my own,” said Joy of the book.
