It’s almost YALLFest time, celebrating all things YA and authors and readers and everything in between. If you are in the area, you really should make this a part of your life. A lot of great authors, discussions, signings. You name it, it will be there. Except maybe unicorns.
Anyway, to help celebrate the upcoming awesomeness that will be YallFest, I am hosting author interviews. Today I welcome Veronica Rossi to the blog.
What is the hardest line to write- the first or the last?
Yeah, those. And all the ones in between!
Best writing tip you ever received?
$5. Just kidding. Um… tip… I think it’s probably to allow yourself to suck when writing early drafts. It takes away a lot of the fear of generating good material. It’s not easy to be creative when you’re judging your work.
Tell us 5 random facts about yourself.
1. In the past year, I discovered a deep love of Brussel sprouts
2. I talk to myself. Heck. Sometimes I argue with myself.
3. I’m arguing with myself about including that last point at this very moment.
4. My favorite animals are elephants.
5. Dresses with pockets make me happy.
Where's your favorite place to write?
I usually work in my home office, but I love working in hotel rooms. No distractions!
What are you working on now?
Something I’m very excited about! Can’t divulge any details yet, but it’s an idea I’ve been mulling over for years.
If you are a lover of dystopian novels but have not yet read ‘Under the Never Sky,’ you should make it a part of your reading life. Look at that cover—and the cover to the sequel. It is a great series with strong characters, solid pacing, and enough action to keep both male and female readers engaged.
And look at that cover for book #3, out January 28, 2014. You can click here to learn more about the plot, or to add it to your Goodreads shelf.
