SUNDAY 9th JUNE 2013
I would like to welcome back Andrea Buginsky, a lovely lady I featured on my blog back in September. Andrea is Author to The Chosen, which has just been republished with a revised and extended version as well as a brand new cover!
Andrea Buginsky is a freelance writer and author. “The Chosen” was her first book, and was followed by “My Open Heart,” an autobiography about growing up with heart disease. “Nature’s Unbalance” is the second story in THE CHOSEN series. Andrea plans to write more in the series. She’s already done with the first draft of book 3 and has a concept for book 4. You can find Andrea on her website, Andi’s Realm. Her books are available at Amazon and Barnes & Noble.
Halli is a shy, young dwarf who has no idea of her true calling. When the evil Prince Gastle sets out to detroy the world of Phantasma, Queen Laurali of the Elves comes to tell Halli she’s a Holy Paladin with the power to heal, and will join The Chosen, a group of brave warriors being sent to defeat the evil beast and save Phantasma. Will Halli be accepted by her group, and be able to keep them alive through their adventures? Will the evil Prince Gastle be defeated, freeing Phantasma from his destruction? Only time will tell.
Hi Andrea and welcome back! It’s great to have you here again. You have been busy since we last caught up.
What made you want to revise and extend The Chosen? The Chosen is my first book, and I feel I’ve learned a lot about my writing since it was published. I wanted to polish up my baby with what I’ve learned to make it the best it can be.
The book cover is very eye-catching – talk us through the idea behind it and how it came to be? My wonderful cousin offered to design the cover for the new edition for me. I found some pictures I really loved, and she created a few drafts for me to choose from. I fell in love with the one we used.
What are you currently reading? Pricilla the Great: Bring the Pain by Sybil Nelson.
If you could be a character from The Chosen, who would it be and why? Halli. I identify with her already, and I love how she overcame her worries and fears, faced her problems head on, and grew into a stronger character because of it.
What is your next writing project that you are going to be working on? I’m currently working on a new YA fantasy series. The first draft of the first book is done, and I’m about to start editing it.
Thank you for being here today Andrea.
Thank you for having me, Gemma!
