To celebrate the launch of the fifth book in the series, Emily Windsnap and the Ship of Lost Souls, I am so pleased to welcome Liz Kessler back on the blog, to discuss book five in the series, Emily Windsnap and the Land of the Midnight Sun. And don't miss the fantastic competition at the end of the post!
Let me take you on a trip to the land of the midnight sun.
As a writer, I like using words. I use them a lot. I love having conversations with friends, I love writing books, I love writing blogs, articles, emails. I use words ALL DAY.
Another thing I love is taking photos. So, on this occasion, I’m going to give words a day off, and share something with you that is about pictures – and music.
The fifth Windsnap Wednesday is all about the fifth Emily Windsnap book – The Land of the Midnight Sun. For this book, I went on one of the best research trips I have ever had: a trip to the arctic in the middle of the summer, when the sun never sets.
Here is how the trip went, and here are the many beautiful sights that inspired my book, with music from the choir of the Arctic Cathedral in Tromso.
So get a cup of tea, sit back and enjoy – and let yourself be transported to the land of the midnight sun.
When I headed to Fivebays Island with both of my schools, I thought it would be an ordinary trip - well, as ordinary as it could be with humans and merpeople side by side!
But I soon realised something wasn't right. Where was the woman who'd invited us? Why did her husband seem so uneasy? And why did an old-fashioned ship keep appearing and vanishing out in the bay?
I could tell a new adventure was sneaking up on me!
How would you like to win the whole set of Emily Windsnap books? And yes, I am talking about all SIX BOOKS!
