The Badlings is published!
“Of all of the naughty, mischievous, disrespectful, and downright horrible things that children can be, a badling is perhaps one of the worst. Badlings abandon books without finishing them, leaving their characters sad and lonely—not to mention angry. Meet Bells, Peacock, Rusty, and Grand, four ragtag friends convicted of this monstrous crime. As punishment, they get sucked into a book of unfinished stories, whose patchwork pages they must traverse...and read to the end this time.”

After many tribulations of trying to change this book to a parody, then cutting most of it out, then rewriting it all over again and getting it back to the original story it is finally done. July 7th is it’s official birthday. It’s only 2 days old, and here is what people are saying about it already:

"This first chapter already has me hooked. I adore Peacock's blue hair, Bells's messy ponytail, and Grand's run-on anecdotes. I'm going to stop rambling now and read on!"

"This entire book is highly imaginative while paying homage to other tales before it. It has plot twists in all the right places and doesn't fail to deliver dark humor when necessary. The character development, too, is expertly executed - a rarity in many modern novels. Overall brilliant work."

"Anske is a bit like Louis Sachar in that her characters are young and whiny and whimsical. Anske is a bit like Neil Gaiman in that she crafts a story that has creative rhyme and reason to the imaginative twists. Anske is a bit like Lewis Carroll in that the reader can’t quite tell what is real and what is false. In The Badlings, Ksenia Anske gives me some of what I longed for in the Eyre Affair by Jasper Fforde."
