Wow, where has this year gone?! It is almost November so that means YALLFEST is creeping up on us quickly! It is on Saturday, November 9th and be sure to check out their website and Twitter to get more information.
Today's author is Lisa McMann. My experience with Ms. McMann's writing is through her Wake trilogy but she has so many other books to her credit. Find out about them by visiting her website and be sure to follow her on Twitter. Her newest title out is Bang, the second book in her Visions series. Here is how she had to answer our questions:
Q1: What one thing do you need to have when you write?
Q2: Best writing tip you ever received?
“Think of the one thing your main character would never, ever do. Now make her do it.”
Q3: 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.
Q4: 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.
Q5: 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.
