Dew Pellucid Author Interview on Kindle Kids Corner

The Sound And The Echos & Comparisons to Harry Potter

We announced last week that Dew Pellucid’s Fantasy Adventure For Middle Grade Readers, The Sound And The Echoes is the Kids Corner Book of The Week. Today we are very excited to post an exclusive interview with author Dew Pellucid.

Kids Corner: The Kids Corner Book of The Week, The Sound and the Echoes, is such a unique concept. What can our readers expect?

Dew Pellucid: When I was fourteen, I saw an ice storm for the first time. That memory was my inspiration for the Echo realm.

Imagine a winter wonderland with rivers of melted sapphires, icy topiaries that look almost alive, and everything glistening under a giant amber sun. And in this frozen kaleidoscope, everything is see-through, flowers showing through trees, cats through dogs. Even the people are see-through.

But that’s not all that makes this strange realm magical. The Echoes are superstitious people, because of a terrible law that rules their lives. When one of us dies up here in the Sound realm, his Echo is put to death in the Echo realm. So what can the Echoes do but hope that Fortune will spare them?

And so the Echo realm is filled with flying crystal balls and moon worshipers who think the silver orb is a giant, celestial crystal ball. The people wear watery robes, the solid floors spread rings under your feet as you walk, and the liquid ceiling in the great dining hall splashes in arches overhead.

The Echo realm is magical, without magic. And to be in it feels like being in a snow globe of wonders.
