I am nearly at the end of my first novel (not reading one, writing one!); it is titled Pirates vs Fairies and after some research it seems fairly certain to be pitched at the 9 year + market.
I am loving writing it and would enourage anyone who wants to try and give it a go to give it a go; the process is therapeutic, but all at once, as the action kicks off in the story, it really does get exciting. It is almost as if you are there watching something take place instead of it pouring out of your head.
