Author Interview: Lisa McMann

YALLFest is just around the corner. This festival is held in Charleston, SC and celebrates all things YA and authors and readers and everything in between. Think good food, good conversation, and your favorite authors galore. It is a paradise.

You can click here to see what awesome authors will be there.

To help celebrate, Book ‘Em! will host author interviews with some of the authors that will make an appearance. Today, I am hosting author Lisa McMann—squee!

What one thing do you need to have when you write?

Best writing tip you ever received?
“Think of the one thing your main character would never, ever do. Now make her do it.”

What are you working on now?
We’ll be ramping up the releases of books 5, 6, and 7 in the Unwanteds series, so I’m working on Unwanteds book 5 right now.

What is your favorite genre to write in? To Read?
I really enjoy writing in a variety of genres, from realistic to paranormal to dystopian fantasy. At the moment, fantasy is winning, but that could change at any moment. My favorite genre to read is memoir.

At what point in the development of an idea do you know that it will become a full-length novel?
As soon as I have a one line concept that gives me a little shiver.

To learn more about Lisa McMann, her writing, and/or where you can catch her on tour, visit her website.

You can also find McMann all over social media: Goodreads, Facebook, Twitter, Tumblr, and Pinterest.

Thank you to YALLFest for providing the interview.

Happy Reading!

    What is your writing process? If you have one. I'm doing a project on my favorite authors and one of the questions I have to answer is What is their writing process like? So, please, if you can, help a fan out.


I would love to hear from you
