Katherine Forrister's latest update for Curio Citizen

Jun 25, 2017

Hello all!

Curio Citizen is still in 1st place! It has been a slow weekend for the contest as a whole, it seems, but there are two days left in the competition. I would love to secure my place in the top 3, but I still really need your help to pull it off! If each one of you is able to get one other person to pre-order, that would increase my chances immensely. Curio Citizen has a good lead, but we can’t rest yet. Please help me succeed in getting this book published! I can’t wait for you all to read it, and I have to be in the top 3 for you to be able to do that. Thank you so much for everything you all have done. The deadline is this Tuesday, June 27th. The contest is open all day on Tuesday, so we can still get some last minute pre-orders in that day--because the competition certainly might!

Here’s today’s look into the world of Curio Citizen:

The Capitol

The largest city on Paz is also the seat of the planet-wide government, and is simply referred to as the Captiol. It holds millions of inhabitants, and includes the biggest and most eclectic curio museums, an enormous quadrisphere stadium, and numerous government buildings. One of these buildings houses the High and Low Councils, and many of the lesser courts. It is called the Egalitarian.

The architecture of the city is diverse, but typically consists of pale colors and various gleaming metals, sparkling crystals, and sleek pearl facades.

The Capitol is centered around a large, paz-made lake, which seems to anchor the beautiful city, and extends its pure waters into countless ponds and fountains throughout the courtyards, plazas, streets, and home and public gardens. It is hard to be anywhere in the Capitol where a background splash of water isn’t heard.


               "The elevator lifted. The movement was so smooth, I hardly felt it, but the view out of the two-way mirror doors made our height clear.

                It was breathtaking. The city was a broach of pearl and opal in a setting of white gold. Glints of emerald trees and open lawns intermixed with sapphire ponds, and the expansive lake was the crown jewel.

                ’This is our largest city,’ Inquieto informed me. ’The Capitol of Paz.’

                ’Paz is your planet,’ I said, unable to take my eyes off the glittering spectacle. ’Your planet has a capitol?’           

                ’Of course,’ he said. He may have intended to say more, but the elevator stopped itself, and our conversation."


Thank you again for all of your support!
