So the whole point of this blog is because I wrote a book. Actually it’s the third (full) book I’ve written. And not even the first I’ve queried. But it’s my current baby and I love it with its chubby book-cheeks and its fat book-fingers.
It’s called GUMIHO (working title). And here’s a bit about it:
Coming up with the idea:
It’s an old Korean myth/folktale about a Gumiho, nine-tailed fox that can shift into a beautiful woman. Korean mythology of the nine-tail fox is interesting because more recent tales say she’s only evil. Whereas, a smattering of older tales imply she’s benevolent or morally ambiguous (more like the Japanese Kitsune is seen). So, I wondered, “How did it come about that she’s just evil now?”
So I’ve had this idea swimming in my head for a couple of years. But I didn’t have the confidence to commit to it until now.
Also, because it’s a love story. And it’s got a lot of K-Drama elements and I’m a K-Drama nut.
AND I get to look at beautiful inspiration like these GIFs:
And now some Novel Aesthetics (this maaay be the reason I wrote this post):
