The Train To Impossible Places Blog Tour - Author Guest Post










The Train to Impossible Places: A Cursed Delivery
by  P.G. Bell (Goodreads Author)

(Book description from Goodreads)
A train that travels through impossible places. A boy trapped in a snow globe. And a girl who’s about to go on the adventure of a lifetime.

The Impossible Postal Express is no ordinary train. It’s a troll-operated delivery service that runs

special delivery!
everywhere from ocean-bottom shipwrecks, to Trollville, to space.

But when this impossible train comes roaring through Suzy’s living room, her world turns upside down. After sneaking on board, Suzy suddenly finds herself Deputy Post Master aboard the train, and faced with her first delivery―to the evil Lady Crepuscula.

Then, the package itself begs Suzy not to deliver him. A talking snow globe, Frederick has information Crepuscula could use to take over the entire Union of Impossible Places. But when protecting Frederick means putting her friends in danger, Suzy has to make a difficult choice―with the fate of the entire Union at stake.

I noticed in Peter’s author bio that he mentioned he is a fan of Doctor Who. Since I also love the Doctor, I asked Peter to let us know how his fandoms inspire his writing.

The things I love probably influence me in more ways than I realise, but there are a few things I drew on very deliberately when writing The Train To Impossible Places. If I've done my job properly, there's a healthy dose of Terry Pratchett's Discworld in the trolls and their weird, half magical, half industrial city of Trollville. I also did my best to echo bits of The Hitchhiker's Guide To The Galaxy by Douglas Adams in the book's general tone. And my favourite TV show, Doctor Who, gets a few passing references as well!
