Author Katherine Petentler is eagerly awaiting her debut book, slated to be released through her website http://www.kapetentler.com and Kindle on December 5, 2014! Polarbe’s Hibernation, a children’s fiction book, is currently available for pre-order, so if you’d like to receive this fun and magical children’s book before Christmas, get it pre-ordered! The first 100 people to pre-order the hardcopy will get copies signed by author and illustrator!
Katherine is a full-time writer and stay at home mom of one daughter and a beautiful little dog. Polarbe’s Hibernation was inspired by a dream Katherine had after watching Madagascar 3 with her daughter. It’s a story about a polar bear cub who is afraid of the dark, and a tale about friendship and bravery, and how we sometimes actually create the things we are afraid of!
She wishes that her book will help children feel safe in opening up to their parents about their fear of the dark (or fears in general), and that kids might be able to discover the truth behind what’s scary to them. She also hopes it will encourage kids to admit when they’re scared, that it’s okay to say that something is scaring you, and that it will help kids discover the strength within to be brave!
Katherine and her illustrator currently have a few more works in progress. She’s also writing a novel for NaNoWriMo, some fairy tales, and a series based on Greek Mythology. You can find her at her website, on Bookbzz, Twitter http://www.twitter.com/kapetentler , @kapetentler like her Facebook page: http://www.facebook.com/CBAkapetentler , and visit her Amazon author page at http://www.authorscentral.amazon.com/kapetentler .
[Congratulations on your new release Katherine! I know how it feels when you finally go live!]
