Months of hard work and dedication in the Publishing Mastermind prepared Lou Rider for the release of her debut children’s book, Jake Knight and The Tale of Vindicatum.
Jake Knight and The Tale of Vindicatum is a book for children aged 10-14 years old and follows the story of Jake Knight, a boy who discovers a magical library that brings him on a series of adventures across time and space.
Lou has always wanted to be an author and had the concept for Jake Knight in her mind for over two years! I’m so glad she signed up for the Publishing Mastermind and accomplished her goal of publishing Jake Knight.
"The story was inside me and insisted on getting out."
Lou found the hardest part of writing her book was catering it for her target audience, but she’s so glad she had the opportunity to journey alongside other upcoming authors as they supported and encouraged each other.
After the release of Jake Knight in November 2020, Lou shared her book with a grade three teacher who helped her relate to her young readers.
Lou loves to entertain anyone and everyone with her humour, drama, art, and writing. She writes short stories from various genres including Sci-Fi, Fantasy, Humour, Allegory, Anecdotes, Christian Fiction and Non-fiction. She has written commercial copy for several companies, produced children’s plays, and published a few short stories along the way.
