BLOG TOUR ❤ Whole in the Clouds by Kristine Kibbee

Cora Catlin is a misfit at best, and an outcast at worst. She feels out of place, as if everything is backward and something is missing from her life.

And then, on her first day of middle school, everything changes.

When Cora encounters an elfin stranger who speaks of the magical world Clouden, an entire kingdom hidden up in the sky, she can’t wait to leave her boring, humdrum life behind. As Cora travels to her new home, where children sprout from the ground and rivers flow with chocolate, she finds herself transformed—and if that weren’t enough, she has to adjust to royal parents, talking Pegasuses, a raging war, and an alluring love interest as well.

Exploring this new land, Cora unearths wonders and secrets beyond her wildest imaginings, discovering the meaning of true friendship, love, and what it means to feel whole.

 Author Interview 

What was your inspiration for Whole in the Clouds?
As a child I was a bit of a misfit myself. I fantasized that some magical force would whisk me up through the clouds and into another world in the skywhere things were fair and right and everyone was friendly and welcoming; very unlike the classmates who teased & tormented me. Even as an adult I look around and see the greedy and evil-hearted prospering while good people with good hearts go without. I suppose Whole in the Clouds was my embodiment of Karma!

Where were you when you were writing Whole in the Clouds?
At the time I wrote Whole in the Clouds wed just moved into this enormous A-frame house with an indoor swimming pool. The house was all cedar inside and had been set up as a party houseas it was once owned by the tour bus driver for the band Motley Crew! I spent many days in that house, surrounded by timber frames like towering fir trees and clear blue water rippling down the hall, immersed in the pages of Whole in the Clouds.

Is there something (like a message or idea) that you want or hope your readers will pull out of Whole in the Clouds?
I hope that readers realize there is love and companionship out there. Simply because you are different from others and they do not accept you, it doesnt mean that you are in any way faulty. There ARE people out there who will love and accept you, regardless of what your appearance or circumstances may be. In the end, a true heart will shine through.

Pens or Pencils?

Pencils have an eraser. In life, I always need an eraser.

Early Bird or Night Owl?

Early Bird but only because my job mandates it! I could swing either way if granted the opportunity. After all, birds of a feather . . . .
