Theodore and the Enchanted Bookstore: Tale of the Spectacular Spectacles Blog Tour

Theodore and the Enchanted Bookstore: Tale of the Spectacular Spectacles
By K. Kibbee
Genre: Early Chapter Book {ages 6-10}

Living life as a bumbling breadbox with fur, was hardship enough for Theodore the Corgi, but when the young dog finds himself cold and alone in a frightening animal shelter, it’s clear that his struggles have only just begun.

Labeled “unadoptable,” by shelter staff, Theodore mires in the gloom until a kind-eyed stranger with a pocket full of handcrafted jerky and a quirky smile, rescues him with the intent of making Theodore the newest addition to his curious Bookstore. Though overwhelmed at first, Theodore soon finds both his new friend and the odd bookstore are welcoming hosts, despite the Corgi’s run of clumsy mishaps. And while Theodore’s formerly dull and lonely life fades to memory, a new, adventurous one blooms before him—for hidden amongst the dusty stacks of books and things at the Enchanted Bookstore, waits a peculiar little man with a set of the most magical, Spectacular Spectacles imaginable. 


What inspired you to write this book?  Actually, this book/series is an entirely new animal (woof!) to me--it's a commissioned piece. My publisher, Incorgnito Publishing Press, wanted a fun series of stories chronicling the adventures of their Corgi little mascot, Theodore. While Theodore was just a silly cartoon dangling from a logo at the start, as I wrote about him, he soon developed quite a unique backstory and an endearing personality fleshed out along with it.
Do you have a place were you like to write at? Frankly, anywhere that it's QUIET will do for me. I bought an "el-cheapo" laptop a couple of years back and so long as I have that little beauty and my trusty ear plugs-- I'm good to go!

What do you like to drink when you write? Coffee, I suppose. Although, coffee-tinted sugar water would probably be a more accurate description. As you can see, I'm trying to "adult," but doing a lackluster job of it. Most of the time I'm just doing a good impersonation of a grown-up.  

A random thing you have done? I suppose you'd like to hear something that's both random and interesting, eh? Not something purely odd like-- "I lick out the insides of my microwave popcorn bags?" Sheesh, I can fictionalize a great many amazing things, but I haven't done a one of them. Would readers buy that I discovered a unicorn at a roadside gypsy camp? 😉

Do you have anything new coming up? Boy, do I! Theodore has a great many adventures planned and then I've got a couple of personal projects currently simmering on the back burner as well. Meanwhile, I'm polishing off the third book in my 'Forests of the Fae' series, which will release next year.
