Staying in with Maria Vermisoglou


I’m ashamed to say that I don’t often feature fantasy on Linda’s Book Bag but I do love YA fiction so I’m delighted to have the chance welcome Maria Vermisoglou to the blog to stay in with me and enlighten me a bit more today.

Staying in with Maria Vermisoglou

Welcome to Linda’s Book Bag Maria. Thank you for agreeing to stay in with me. Tell me, which of your books have you brought along to share this evening and why have you chosen it? 

I carry with me the first adventure of The Cursed Girl series. It’s the first book I have ever published and I am very excited about it. I started writing it four years ago and in 1st April 2018 (Yes, it is a joke!) I finally published it. It was a hard journey since English is not my first language and knew nothing about the process but I managed.

(Gosh. It’s hard enough writing a book without doing so in another language. Congratulations.)

What can we expect from an evening in with The Cursed Girl?

You can expect just about everything from The Cursed Girl. Love, friendship, backstabbing, twists at every turn. It’s an epic fantasy story unlike anything else you have ever read.

(It sounds very exciting.)

Here are some of the recent reviews:

The Cursed Girl is a fantastic story, set in a well-crafted magical reality

I just finished reading the book today and it left me speechless

Good reading and the name itself makes the novel a top academic story

(You should be very proud of those reviews Maria.)

What else have you brought along and why?


I’ve brought with me a photo of Venice. I visited some time ago and was fascinated with it.

(Oh. Yes. I love Venice – such an inspirational place to visit.)


I also have with me one of my favorite scenes in the book.

And now you’ve made me want to read The Cursed Girl even more. Thank you so much for staying in with me to tell me more about it Maria.
